"Landsailor"
(Vienna Teng feat. Glen Phillips)

Landsailor
Landsailor, sail on time
Rain or shine, I know you can
Cloudraker
Cloudraker, share your finds
All your wonders at my demand

Lightbringer
Tamer of night
Blossom of hours unleashed
Make me a lawbender
All equalized
Saved from the chill and heat
Your power flows through me transformed
Here’s where I was born

Landsailor
Deepwinter strawberry
Endless summer, ever spring
A vast preserve
Aisle after aisle in reach
Every commoner made a king

Earthbreaker
Noble and prized
Feed me beyond my means
Hello worldmaker
Never denied
Build all my wildest dreams
But there’s a storm outside your door
And I’m a child no more

Headless and faceless
Tireless and seamless behind these walls
This is my progress
When you don’t notice my lines at all
I split the world open
Delve ever deeper in my alchemic arts
I crack the ciphers to free up your mind, your life, your heart

Oh landsailor I’m your landsailor
In the bed that we’ve made
May every nail be shown
Great lifebringer
The price that we pay
Time that you made it known
I want to be your bride in full (oh be my bride in full)
Shield my eyes no more (shield your eyes no more)
Oh I am altered now for good (altered now for good)
Shield these eyes no more


Some people on my flist haven't seen the new movie yet, so please avoid spoilers in comments -- thank you!

Oh, this is wonderful! It is also definitely furthering my post-movie desire to go reread a bunch of EU novels. :)

Oh my heart. I always fall tail over teakettle for your vids. You have such a way of drawing out the love and friendship and team feelings. This is such a loving, gracefully astute character study. 'scuse me, I have to go watch it over and over until bedtime.

Nice! Where is that shot of Han and Luke in the blowing sand from? I can't place it.

This was really great! So many feels for the original three, and Landsailor is perfect for them!

This had a great feel to it. Loved the timing of that clip with I’m a child no more

I enjoyed this! (I think I may have watched the stream when you first posted, at least it seemed vaguely familiar, but didn't download and then forgot about it again.) And btw, self-reccing is always fine with me.
