Fourth single/chapter from iamamiwhoami's audiovisual album BLUE.

Music video observationsEdit

The video begins with drops of water dripping into a pool. Jonna Lee holds a melting ice cube in her hand, and it is revealed that she is standing in the sea. She is wearing a white leotard, hair up in a braid, and a melted crown on her head. Dancing in the water, and forming shapes in the sea, she continues walking forward, and a shot of glass bottles floating in the water is shown. She then folds a piece of paper containing a lyric sheet, and slots it into a glass bottle, corking it. She then throws it into the distance, allowing it to freely float. Shots of multiple bottles are shown with paper inside. The final shot shows a bottle washing up on shore, with what appears to be grid paper inside it.

Notes Edit

  • The phrase "To whom it may concern." makes an appearance at the beginning of the video. This is the seventh occurrence on video overall.
  • The video directly contrasts vista, a progression from ice to water. Her surroundings have thawed out, shifting from icy mountaintops to the watery ocean. Parallels between both videos such as a piece of ice in her hand and her crown have melted away. This is reinforced by the bridge between the two songs in the BLUE island edition being titled melter.

TriviaEdit

  • The last 2 shots read 'iamamiwhoami; BLUE', and a Pre-order notice.
  • The message in the glass bottle are the lyrics to shadowshow, as evident in the close-up shot of a reversed "it's how it goes" written on the page. Other suggestions prove that chasing kites could also be shown whilst Jonna curls up a sheet of paper during one scene. However, the final piece of paper (on the bank, inside a bottle) appears to be a blank piece of graph paper.
  • The single was made available as an instant download by pre-ordering the album through iTunes.
  • The music video was filmed in Aruba, as confirmed by Lee herself on THE ISLAND interview.

LyricsEdit

Tap your glass, let us see you unfold
Shall I tap my glass and give it my all
We could tap our glasses, let ourselves go now

Tap my glass, raise my voice
To call upon your attention
As it fills to the verge when full
It breaks and floods all suspension

Draw a breath and let ourselves go
Through the dark veil we slowly float
Feel the salt slowly fill your throat

Tap your glass, let us see you unfold
Shall I tap my glass and give it my all
We could tap our glasses, let ourselves go now (x 2)

From the tide that's rising
Using all of my force
I form shapes of the sea
You're changing its course
We are creating new islands
Now will the flood come swallow down all our sorrow
Down and down, we drown we drown
We drown here

Let the shallows of above forget us
Getting closer to the bottom
The venture of a life in the cold never to be forgotten

Unless they want to let themselves go
Unless they choose to be swallowed
Then the above will be visible

Tap your glass, let us see you unfold
Shall I tap my glass and give it my all
We could tap our glasses, let ourselves go now (x 2)

From the tide that's rising
Using all of my force
I form shapes of the sea
You're changing its course
We are creating new islands
Now will the flood come swallow down all our sorrow
Down and down, we drown we drown
We drown here

(We are creating new islands!)
(The tide is rising!)
(We are creating new islands!)
