He called me baby, baby
All night long
Used to hold and kiss me
Till the dawn

Then one day I awoke
And he was gone
There's no more baby, baby
All night long

He called me baby, baby
All night long
Lord, I feel so empty
Since he's been gone

Now I lie here and I die here
Until the dawn
I miss my baby, baby, baby
All night long

I can still hear
Baby, baby, baby, baby
All night long

I can still hear him
Calling me baby, baby, baby, baby
All night long

Oh, what you do
Is just hold me, baby
Squeeze me, baby
All night long

I just wanna hear you say baby...

I don't know the source for this at all, but this was one of the most moving vids I saw at VVC, and I've thought of it often since. It's just so evocative of love and loss, the bittersweetness of remembered happiness, even without knowing any of the details of the context.

As I said to Lola after we watched it in the challenge vidshow –– it's a quiet and contemplative vid, but it has all the [livejournal.com profile] kiki_miserychic power in it. (Well, I said the power, but you know what I mean. :) )

Thank you. Enlightened is a great show and I absolutely loved this episode. Diane Ladd in the episode made me want to create something quieter than what I usually make.

As I told you at the con, this completely broke me.

Thank you. I feel evil for saying that I was trying to break people.

Come over here and sit next to me, where the vidders are master puppeteers and the viewers cry on command!

I loved how you used long slow clips to show her lonliness and fast cuts to show her going on with everyday life. I don't know this source either, but it's a great vid.
