Music video observationsEdit

The music video begins on a beach, with Jonna Lee lying on the ground being awoke by sunlight filtering through palm trees nesting over her. A faceless figure, last seen in vista, appears above her, and Lee smiles at it. The scene changes to Lee resting her body against the faceless figure, and another Lee wearing a white leotard draped with a white cloth is seen at a shore, with the faceless figure. Another form of Lee dressed in a plastic outfit with a paper collar sings, blue tears dripping down her eyes. This form of Lee looks into a mirror but only sees a faceless figure in it, and not her own reflection.

Lee then later dives into the ocean with the faceless figure, and at the end, they presumably drown as they float to the surface, unconscious. Lee in the white leotard is also briefly seen galloping on a white horse, which is compared to several faceless figures running across the shore. Lee and the faceless figure are seen peering into the water at the shore's edge, before a quick shot from hunting for pearls calls back to a similar pose at a lake's edge. A faceless figure is seen at the shore, folding paper boats and letting them drift to sea. The final scene cuts back to Lee waking up on the sand, but this time she is alone. Her white leotard is floating nearby at the shore. As her fingers grab the outfit, the picture cuts to black.


  • The phrase "To whom it may concern." makes an appearance at the beginning of the video. This is the eighth occurrence on video overall.
  • When Lee walks backwards along the shore, it parallels a similar action in t.


  • The last 2 shots read 'iamamiwhoami; BLUE', and a Pre-order notice.



  1. blue blue — 5:28


In the blackened waters of conceit
I saw my silhouette, pale and bleached
All thin outlines and no shape
Dash the surface for the self to show
Displays a vague shadow I should know
Unless you define me, there’s no faith

Continue the line I draw
Fill in the missing mark
Without you, you
I am who?
Build me up all nice and tall
Lift me up and make me soar
Out of the blue blue
I’ll be new

Here we spent every resource
Against the current, change the course
With no land in sight
Give me pace
Owning up to each letter spelled
Rewrite the story that I now tell
Come let’s run, from the chase

Continue the line I draw
Fill in the missing mark
Without you, you
I am who?

Build me up all nice and tall
Lift me up and make me soar
Out of the blue blue
I’ll be new

Across the bottomless blue
Seeking the truth I turn to you
Reflected back in all your shine
A making of your design

Continue the line I draw
Fill in the missing mark
