The Heartlines of D.I. Jack Robinson

miss fisher murder mysteries florence and the machine fan music video

cannot be returned

My TV Sherpa friends got me hooked on Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries>> and I knew I had to do a fan music video to it. Watched some of them on YouTube and found one to Florence & The Machine’s “Heartlines”. Loved the song and wanted to use it to tell Jack’s POV.

Each mv has its own challenges, from limited footage in only a single movie (like The Avengers) to 5 years worth of a television series (like Stargate Atlantis). It’s also fun to make the main character of your mv not be the main character of the footage, which leads to many hours combing through every scene, looking for just the right clip to tell the story you want to tell – seriously, this is how this introvert has three days of fun. 😉

In this case, I wanted to tell Jack’s story, from his first meeting with Phyrne, through adventures and growing trust, to heartbreak and renewed friendship and possibilities.

LYRICS:
Oh the river, oh the river, it’s running free.
And oh the joy, oh the joy it brings to me.
But I know it’ll have to drown me,
Before I can breathe easy.
And I’ve seen it in the flights of birds,
I’ve seen it in you.
The entrails of the animals,
The blood running through.
But in order to get to the heart,
I think sometimes you’ll have to cut through.
But you can’t…

We will carry…
We will carry you there…

Just keep following!
The heartlines on your hand!
Just keep following!
The heartlines on your hand!
Keep it up!
I know you can!
Just keep following!
The heartlines on your hand!
Cause I am…

On the sea, on the sea and land over land.
Creeping and crawling like the sea over sand.
Still I follow heartlines on your hand.
And there’s fantasy, there’s fallacy, there’s tumbling stone.
Echoes of a city that’s long overgrown.
Your heart is the only place that I call home,
I cannot be returned.
You can…
You can…
I know you can…

Just keep following!
The heartlines on your hand!
Just keep following!
The heartlines on your hand!
Keep it up!
I know you can!
Just keep following!
The heartlines on your hand!

What a thing to do…
Oooh
What a thing to choose…
But know, in some way I’m there with you.
Up against the wall on a Wednesday afternoon.

Just keep following!
The heartlines on your hand!
Just keep following!
The heartlines on your hand!
Keep it up!
I know you can!
Just keep following!
The heartlines on your hand!
Cause I am.
