Meh. It's a music video - most of them are pretty corny on some level. In my opinion, very few videos by anybody are actually any good. At least this one makes some sort of attempt at a positive message.

This song continues to grow on me. I fucking love it. Today, it reminded me (for the first time) a lot of Amongst the Waves. I can just get carried away and lost in this tune. :heartbeat:

Its relationship to AtW is one of the big reasons it doesn't click with me.

Mostly Ed's phrasing and vocal inflections in the verses. He oversings it.

I think it's that both songs used to be a house of cards that subsequently turned into a reservoir. But don't quote me on that.

The chorus feels very speed of sound to me. I can hear a somewhat similar cadence to Sirens or ATW in the verses (I think ATW has the best vocal melody of the 3). These are all good mid tempo songs that don't get too showy in their presentation
