Sleepless Blue Water

Well, after a year’s hiatus, I had to make an amv, and here it is. Not the kind of anime character design I usually like, but the underwater effects in Blue Sub 6 are really impressive and fit with the water imagery in Sylvia Tosun’s song.

I cut this on a laptop using Windows Movie Maker, which for it’s you-can’t-edit-in-less-than-7-frames flaw, is still a fairly decent free program. Just be careful of leaving in flash frames of a previous/next scene because they don’t always show up in the timeline view.

If you like October/November Project’s kind of music, you’ll probably also like Sylvia Tosun>‘s stuff – I know I did.

LYRICS:

Before you speak what you can’t rehearse
Before the tide you can’t reverse
The pounding of your heart
The rhythm of the surf
A blessing you would curse if you only had the words

For the sleepless dark water
Has caught you in waves of longing and doubt
Before you’re strong enough to stop what you started here
You always know in the ending the waves will come

Before you choose uncertain days
A silver cloud a breath of haze
A fog upon the coast
A ghost of happiness
A sadness you would bless if you only could confess

To the sleepless dark water
That caught you in waves of longing and doubt
Before you’re strong enough to stop what you started here
You always know in the ending the waves will come

To steal the silence
To feel the wind upon your face
You make a promise
Before you can be saved

The sleepless dark water
Has caught you in waves of longing and doubt
Because you’re strong enough to stop what you started here
You’ll always know the ending
The waves will come
The waves will come apart . . .
