Lyrics: Okay, so I vidded with a french song for once, because It just inspired me. I put a translation here I made myself so it's a bit approximative.

Un tour de manège
Autour de nos vies
Nos vies
Qui tournent en rond
Un tour de magie
Pour voir
Si le voyage
Vaut le coup

Un tour de manège
Autour de nous qui
Tournons autour de nous
Un tour de toupie
Pour voir
Si notre amour
Vaut le tour
Voir si notre amour
Vaut le tour

Tourne
Tourne
Tourne
Tourne

Ce beau manège
Ce grand manège
Me met la tête
À l’envers
Me met la tête
À lenvers

Ce beau manège
Ce grand manège
Me met le cœur
En l’air
Me met le cœur
en l'air

La la la la la la

(reprise)

A merry go round
riding around our lives
our lives
Turning in circles
A magic act
To see
if the ride
is worth it

A merry go round
riding around us who
turn around
like a spinning top
To see
if our love
is worth the ride
if our love
is worth the ride


Turn,
Turn,
Turn,
Turn

This beautiful merry go round
this great merry go round
puts my head
upside down
puts my head
upside down

This beautiful merry go round
this great merry go round
throws my heart
in the air
throws my heart
in the air

La la la la la la

(repeat)

Notes:
Being submerged by the Vividcon deadlines and my own stress, I heard this song and fell addictivly in love with it. When I realised it would fit perfectly for Chuck/ned or a more generaly a Pushing Daisies vid, I just put a few notes on my vidding board as an idea for a future vid. Except, the song couldn't get out of my mind and  the truth is the best creativity comes when you're passionate about your subject, so I decided to try and see if I could do something quick, or at least just draw something for later. After a day with barely any sleep, here you go.
I know it's far from perfect and there's lots of little things I would work on if I had nothing else planned but I promised myself I wouldn't spend more than a day on this.
But I guess it doesn't matter so much. I didn't planned on being mindblowing, I just wanted to celebrate everything adorable about the show I feel so much close too and the song I fell in love with and that fit so much the show and characters to me.  It's probably the most personnal vid I've made so far. Hopefully, it'll make you as happy and mushy as me. :-)
Tech wise, not much to say, all the prettiness is from the show, I just added some external motion a lot to make everything as flowy as possible, played a bit with speed/velocity and used one effect or two here and there. But it's a quick vid so there's nothing much to say.

Comments are love, as always :-)

OMG how unbelievably sweet! :D I've never seen Pushing Daisies but I think I was able to follow everything that was going on. And it definitely held my attention with its unstoppable cuteness. :D The opening with all the shots of them as kids is so pretty. The visuals throughout are striking but these were especially so. There's also great attention to external motion throughout. I love it when people are able to take advantage of pretty in-source camerawork. The vid really never stops moving, and you know I'm a sucker for constant motion. ;)

0:14 - The emotion and motion in that shot over "vies" is wonderfully musical. You've done a great jo with the musicality throughout the vid.
0:24 - Hee, nice time toggle.
0:25 - Kissing monkey statues! Awww.
0:33 - Oh I love the placement of the fruit and the window. The continued motion with the falling and the zoom is great too.
0:37 - Aww, nice little push-in.
0:58 - I like the intercutting of their plastic kiss and his bringing back to life and permanently killing that other person. It helps reinforce why they need to keep that physical separation between them.
1:11 - Oh man, the look on his face is soooo sweet. Combined with the music it's really romantic.
1:18 - Really pretty overlay!
1:22 - Flying among the windmills over the "lalala." There's that awesome musicality I was talking about. I liked the way you kept Ned and Chuck in there through a light overlay, but didn't let that relatively static shot overpower the awesome movement in the windmill clip.
1:41 - Are they holding their own hands? OMG so cute!

I really love that you ended with the beekeeper suit dance. It looks like a really sweet scene and you used it well throughout the vid.

Great job hun! I really enjoyed it, and it certainly doesn't look like a quickie. ;)

The vid really never stops moving, and you know I'm a sucker for constant motion. ;)
I'm obsessed with movement as well ;) But thank you for mentionning this, I tried to do my best to keep it moving with the merry-go-round theme of the music. :)

1:11 - Oh man, the look on his face is soooo sweet. Combined with the music it's really romantic.
I'm so glad you mentionned this cause it was definitely the emotionnal peak to me that made me go all "awwww" and broke my heart of happiness for the adorable Ned ;)

1:18 - Really pretty overlay!
his heart is exploding of love ! LOL and yes, mushy is my middle name, but I don't care :D

Thanks so much for the comments on musicality, it's really one of the best thing you could say to me. You made my day ! :D
