I am a question to the world
Not an answer to be heard
All a moment that's held in your arms
And what do you think you'd ever say?
I won't listen anyway
You don't know me
And I’ll never be what you want me to be

And what do you think you'd understand?
I'm a boy, no, I'm a man
Now you know me and I'm not afraid
And how can you learn what's never shown
Yeah you stand here on your own
They don't know me
'Cause I'm not here

And I want a moment to be real
Wanna touch things I don't feel
Wanna hold on and feel I belong
And how can the world want me to change
They’re the ones that stay the same
They can’t see me
But I’m still here

They can’t tell me who to be
‘Cause I’m not what they see
And the world is still sleepin’
While I keep on dreamin’ for me
And their words are just whispers
And lies that I’ll never believe

And I want a moment to be real
Wanna touch things I don't feel
Wanna hold on and feel I belong
And how can they say I never change
They’re the ones that stay the same
I’m the one now
‘Cause I’m still here

I’m the one
‘Cause I’m still here
I’m still here
I’m still here
I’m still here

Oh, really lovely! I love the editing in this, how the actions match so many of the musical cues and build and ebb accordingly.

Fantastic vid. Loved it in all it's epic glory. Awesome use of motion. The final spinning section was breathtaking.

This was so well-done! I love this song and it was a great match for this movie. My favorite part was Toothless doing barrel-rolls as the music ramped up for the final chorus. Brilliant. :)

Thank you for the lovely feedback! That barrel roll was one of the first clips I put on the timeline. :D

!!!!!!! I think my heart grew three times its size, this was simply simply gorgeous, from start to end. The mood, the editing, the musicality, the narrative, it was simply perfect. I loved this movie (and like most people I think, I was surprised by how much I loved it), and this highlights all the reasons why. There are too many amazing moments to point them all out, but the loading up of the gun and explosion at 00:37, the build up to the chorus at 1:09 (including the bounce of the ground getting further away at 1:10, perfectly highlighting the music), the barrel rolls at 2:09 are certainly highlights for me.

I'm soaring with this beautifu beautiful vid!! What a glorious thing it is...the musicality, the emotion...it's magnificent. Round and round in the sky at 2:09 must be what JOY is!!!

Thank you for the lovely feedback! The 2:09 moment was one of the first clips I laid down and pretty much motivated me to power through the rest of the vid. :D

Is there... a verse missing? That said, absolutely gorgeous! PS: Frowny Hiccup is not my opinion, but it's my only Hiccup icon.

In my experience, audio edits can be quite common in vidding. It's often tied up in narrative structure and emotional development, and not to let the original song structure dictate how often you repeat yourself.
There's nothing worse than a vid that just... keeps... going... for no reason, right? ;)

Count me as another who enjoyed this immensely. I love the sentiment of the song as a response to the themes of the film.

oh man someone on my flist just recced this today and i have to say, you are really really good at this! (and it almost but not quite escaped my notice that you were also behind the t&b vid that i watched over and over again and continue to go back to every time i need a pick-me-up). but yes, this movie + this song + your editing = perfect fit!

I didn't watch this when you posted it because I still had the film on my "to watch" list and wanted to stay away from spoilers but now that I've seen it I went back and watched your vid and...

Oh my. That was absolutely breathtakingly stunning. I'm deeply in love with the song anyway (yay, Johnny Rzeznik!), and the fact that you set it to HTTYD and it's just so...beautiful. And perfect. And your editing. The sheer flawless musicality of your vid. I'm flailing all over the place here! I must watch this over and over again!

Thank you so much for the feedback and the very kind rec. :) I'm glad you enjoyed it so much! I love the song too and had been waiting for the perfect time to use it in a vid.
