Lyrics below

Well I held you like a lover
Happy hands and your elbow in the appropriate place

And we ignored our others, happy plans
For that delicate look upon your face

Our bodies moved and hardened
Hurting parts of your garden
With no room for a pardon
In a place where no one knows what we have done

Do you come
Together ever with him?
And is he dark enough?
Enough to see your light?
And do you brush your teeth before you kiss?
Do you miss my smell?
And is he bold enough to take you on?
Do you feel like you belong?
And does he drive you wild?
Or just mildly free?
What about me?

Well you held me like a lover
Sweaty hands
And my foot in the appropriate place

And we use cushions to cover
Happy glands
In the mild issue of our disgrace

Our minds pressed and guarded
While our flesh disregarded
The lack of space for the light-hearted
In the boom that beats our drum

Well I know I make you cry
And I know sometimes you wanna die
But do you really feel alive without me?
If so, be free
If not, leave him for me
Before one of us has accidental babies
For we are in love

Do you come
Together ever with him?
Is he dark enough?
Enough to see your light?
Do you brush your teeth before you kiss?
Do you miss my smell?
And is he bold enough to take you on?
Do you feel like you belong?
And does he drive you wild?
Or just mildly free?

What about me?
What about me?

I've watched this a few times today, and it remains as beautiful, true and honest with each repeated viewing as it did the first time.

Thank you Ed... I'm moved if it touched your heart. *hugs*

Ah, pilots will always break me. And so will your vids. Thanks for sharing this one with us.

Thank you very much for letting me know you dowloaded such a large file for starters! :-) And for giving me a glimpse at the fact that it was similarly emotional for you as producing this piece was for me. ((())) They're eternally all encompassing and stunning in their beauty...

This is so beautiful! I keep watching it intending to pick out some of my favourite moments to tell you about but getting lost in the flow of it... ;) I'll try really hard! Here goes:
0.52 'happy plans' = their bright faces
1.11 the stars you put in beside Kara
1.50 'your light'--the zoom in makes it so powerful, that moment of seeing how bright she is
2.17 I love these looks from Lee at that dinner
2.39 Kara's contorted face on 'mildly free'
3.43 Their faces so close
3.56 By far one of the most powerful moments in the vid--that flash of Kara's pain on 'want to die' when all her fears flare up
5:50 Kara's reaction on 'what about me' where her wordless expression and the fact she dressed up do the talking
many many more as well... :)))) they shine so brightly, our pilots :)))))

Thank you for sharing moments that gave you some feelings, dear. I don't have words to convey how hard making this thing was and at the same time how rich - emotionally... I've never felt this way before with any other pilots video I produced.

I like how your icon sort of matches the shot that I picked for a cover... where Kara looks down. :-)

love it Mash, love Kara in your clip

Great video, thank you

Спасибо, солнце! Никогда, наверно, не перестану дивиться космической красоте пилотов...

Момент когда она строит рожицу старшему Адаме после второго возвращения с Каприки - один из моих наверное самых любимых

Кстати забавно что твой клип хоть и назван Kara Lee - он в большей степени о Каре и мне кажется вот такой (очень близкой кстати к моей ощущению героини) ты ее впервые в своих клипах показала

За это отдельное огромное спасиб

Really lovely and poignant. A sweet, sad look at Pilots and very well done. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Hey! Thanks so much for your kind words... it's a pleasure of mine to remind people visually from time to time what a treasure they are... and what a gift to each other. :-)
That's me, you know: Adamassracheg on September 9th, 2012 03:33 pm (UTC)
Oh God!!! How I miss the relationship the have the first two seasons!!!
m_a_r_i_k_s: #2m_a_r_i_k_s on September 9th, 2012 07:58 pm (UTC)
Yes they were stunning. Still are in my my heart! Thank you for commenting! :-)

Beautiful! These two awlays manage to break my heart.
m_a_r_i_k_s: scar_kissm_a_r_i_k_s on January 30th, 2013 01:58 pm (UTC)
Thank you! They're epic :)
my ship has two pilots: Islandedwinegums on September 11th, 2012 10:02 pm (UTC)
That was SO beautiful, but I won't lie, it hurt to watch. You should be proud of yourself, it's a masterpiece as far as videos go, you edited and paced it perfectly, even if one minute in I'm all

(and oh, pilots. I will never love another fictional couple the way I love them)

Thank you so much for letting me know the vid moved you! I'm sorry it took so long to respond. Pilots are hearbreakingly beautiful... and I cry too.
scifishipperscifishipper on October 1st, 2012 03:15 am (UTC)
*cries* I've been a bit out of touch with pilots in the past few weeks, but this video really brought me right back, tears and all. Haunting, poignant, and just simply very true to their love and need for each other. I loved it completely. Thank you. <3

I'm sorry it took so long to respond. I guess I needed time to recover after making this vid... thank you for letting me know it touched your heart! They're timeless and I will probably always hear certain songs and see their faces... and get compelled to return to them in vidding every once in a while.

Спасибо огромное, за все Ваши работы, и за эту больше всех. Сколько лет прошло, а Пилоты никак не отпустят, и каждый раз как выходит Ваше новое видео, старые раны оживают...(как бы пафосно это не звучало)Этот их путь в никуда, такой яркий, такой красивый, такой жесткий и даже жестокий, потому что конец совершенно бессмысленен..Откровенно говоря, я никак не могу заставить себя даже Ваш клип до конца досмотреть, предвосхищая события...В общем к чему я? Пилоты навсегда! Вы их самый проницательный поклонник! Спасибо за работы, они все маленькие чудесные подарки! Настя.
m_a_r_i_k_s: #2m_a_r_i_k_s on January 30th, 2013 02:10 pm (UTC)
Спасибо за такой душевный отклик, Настенька! Я не в силах передать как Пилоты затронули мою душу и как я сильно люблю их, сколько поэзии и правды вижу в их связи и взаимодействии. Наверно поэтому и возвращаюсь время от времени к тому, чтобы попытаться передать эти неуловимые чувства в какой-то форме. Сильнее, многогранней, сложнее и правдивее пары в кино не было для меня... да и что там говорить, до сих пор они снятся мне временами. :)

Hi, I thought I'd successfully downloaded this lovely vid a few weeks back, but my copy only plays half the song now and your sendspace link has expired. Any chance for a new link to download?
m_a_r_i_k_s: #2m_a_r_i_k_s on January 30th, 2013 02:13 pm (UTC)
Hi! :-) Thank you for commenting and letting me know that the link's expired! I just reuploaded the video so I hope it works for you now: http://www.sendspace.com/file/x7e006

So beautiful and moving
Oh wow. I had never heard the song before and your video editing is amazing. I just watched BSG this past year and of course got snookered into shipping lee/kara and when the 4th season came I was like wha? Who? What??! When I would review earlier shows and such I would compare to season 4 and think ok...so it's like L/K were nothing more than shipmates and I get Anders shoved down my throat quite unwelcomed and without warning. And Lee? He would pop in and out as would Kara. Giving faint hope to the shippers by scantily stoking the flame of chemistry only for the writers to come back along and toss water on it. So for first time in ever I have devoured AU BSG anywhere I can so that these characters I grew fond of in the show's beginning make more sense. Your vid was beautiful and made more sense to me as arranged than most anything delivered in the show for these characters and the relationship undernourished on screen and starved to death by RDM in the finale. It's been six months since I saw the finale.....i refuse to get attached to any other show again. Refuse. Anyway thanks for sharing your work it is lovely
