Music video observationsEdit

Sever screenshot

Lee in the apartment of the high-rise building with the hairy figure.

The video for "sever" begins with a close-up of Jonna Lee singing, her hair ostensibly wet. The camera pans out and the entire location is revealed to be a white two-room residence in an apartment building. Lee, clad in white underwear and dirty white socks, sits on the floor while a hairy figure behind her closes the window blinds. Lee then crawls on the wet floor and stands up. She walks to the adjacent room, looking out the window and fondling her stomach as the hairy figure rushes behind her and embraces her. Initially resistant, Lee soon begins to waltz with it. The video ends with Lee twirling to the other end of the room.


  • The view outside the apartment window occasionally changes from a view of an adjacent apartment building to a white area with leafless trees. In "b", the view outside the room is also a white area with leafless trees.

Might looks so grand from a distance that you need to touch
It gives a vision of the simple but it isn't much

I won't be fooled by it's touch or emotional supply
The scent of the fair and heavy allure will dry
The cold and the bare grasped so delicate by one's eye
Is why we can't ally and elope to wry

Almost forgotten the way we used to live for play
To be accepted I must blend into conventions way
And sing in universal ways

I won't be fooled by it's touch or emotional supply
The scent of the fair and heavy allure will dry
The cold and the bare grasped so delicate by one's eye
Is why we can't ally and elope to wry
