Coming Home to Me
Video: Nashville (TV) through episode 3x10
Audio: "Coming Home to Me" by Patty Griffin (featuring Julie Miller)
Notes: A gift for [personal profile] odessie, my assigned recipient (with excellent media taste) for [community profile] festivids 2014.

The beautiful, profound, unexpected and imperfect maternal and mentor relationships between Rayna, Juliette, Maddie, and Scarlett.

Anytime you say it with heart
Anytime you're falling apart
When you're washing the sheets
Any stranger you meet
When there's somebody waving goodbye

You're coming home to me, just remember
You're coming home to me

It's a world full of bar rooms and alleys
Of blue nights and red river valleys
When you feel like a shirt and a tie
Or like dirt
Or a lion and no one can see

You're coming home to me, just remember
You're coming home to me

When you get to that place
That's just under the stars
Hanging over the tree
At a quarter to three
When you get there you'll know
That's as far as you go
When you get there you'll see
You were already free
When you get there you'll la la la la la la

When you're lost and you're found
And you're found and you're lost
When you're dancing with no one around

You're coming home to me, just remember
You're coming home to me

IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL! This is so, so moving, I cry every time. Such an excellent song and concept combination, I love it so much. <3

lol and now that I was looking for it, I'm laughing a lot at that shot highlighting the *absence* of Luke. Perfect (I mean obviously it has real emotional significance too, but right now I'm enjoying the absence of Luke).

Thank you again, it's just so gorgeous - one of those vids you get even more from on a rewatch. As chaila said, it's an inspired song and concept combination.

with excellent media taste

Ha! Well, yes, obviously I can't deny it. -_- Right back at you.

This is gorgeous. I love that it's about these ladies' relationships with each other - and how you wove their stories together. The juxtaposition of Scarlett's spiral and how she stepped in for Maddie was especially powerful, because it was a little more unexpected. But it all has a cumulative effect, especially the use of them singing at various points, which is so powerful in the show, being to do with self-expression and creativity.

You are so making me regret not keeping up with Nashville. I stopped after season 1 just because of lack of time, but the complex relationships between the layered women characters were one of the best things about season 1. Your vid has convinced me to catch up on the show.

It's so quietly beautiful and touching. Love how the song reflects the concept not just lyric-wise but in the performer's voices intertwining and then picking up the lyrics the other sang earlier as you navigate the various relationships. Thank you for making this <3
