Rewrite the End of the World

As soon as I watched it, I knew I wanted to edit one (or more) Good Omens fan music videos. Took some time to find the right song, and longer to be able to buy the DVDs, but this one is finally done. Pulling from 6 episodes worth of material makes for a lot of editing hours, but that’s not much of a hardship when it means spending time with these two.

The Good Omens fandom is one of the most generous I’ve encounter in my (ah) 30+ years, from the creators and actors to the fans themselves. This is my gratitude and contribution for all their efforts.

LYRICS:

You know I want you
It's not a secret I try to hide
I know you want me
So don't keep saying our hands are tied

You claim it's not in the cards
Fate is pulling you miles away
And out of reach from me

But you're here in my heart
So who can stop me if I decide
That you're my destiny?

What if we rewrite the stars?
Say you were made to be mine
Nothing could keep us apart
You'd be the one I was meant to find

It's up to you,
and it's up to me
No one can say what we get to be
So why don't we rewrite the stars?
Maybe the world could be ours
Tonight

You think it's easy
You think I don't want to run to you
But there are mountains
And there are doors that we can't walk through

I know you're wondering why
Because we're able to be
Just you and me
Within these walls
But when we go outside
You're going to wake up and see that it was hopeless after all

No one can rewrite the stars
How can you say you'll be mine?
Everything keeps us apart
And I'm not the one you were meant to find

It's not up to you
It's not up to me
When everyone tells us what we can be
How can we rewrite the stars?
Say that the world can be ours
Tonight

All I want is to fly with you
All I want is to fall with you
So just give me all of you

It feels impossible
(it's not impossible)
Is it impossible?
Say that it's possible

How do we rewrite the stars?
Say you were made to be mine?
Nothing can keep us apart
'Cause you are the one I was meant to find

It's up to you
And it's up to me
No one can say what we get to be
And why don't we rewrite the stars?
Changing the world to be ours
