Ok, he's such a total cutie.

That video is tongue in cheek some of the time and heart-throb-man-and-shadow-for real the rest.

I loved him in the eyeliner and the sweater, both. Love how he looks with his eyes different colours at the end: is that the combined/integrated self?

Or: is the song a love song to himself? you are the one person I can't live without. That's somewhat solipsistic, isn't it?

what do you think it's all about, Bonnie?

I think the original meaning was pretty straightforward, but when he has made videos about relationships, he has not featured anyone else in them. I think the idea is that the camera represents the other person, so he's singing to you.

But the video gives it a second meaning. The split personality idea is pretty creative and interesting, and represents the two sides in each of us, and the fact that nobody's perfect. I just wrote the other day about the concept that there is good and bad in each us. It is part of the human condition.

It's himself and his shadow, maybe. And when the shadow self reaches out to help the main self, they merge into one.

Thanks for linking to this vid as I love it and have gotten a lot of joy out of it. :)

There is a symbiotic relationship being portrayed here. One cannot exist without the other.

Are you a Firefly fan? This concept was explored in the movie "Serenity." The Powers That Be tried to add something to the atmosphere on a planet to make the population less violent - to make them better. The results were disatrous.

I have watched this video several times myself. I can't get enough! He is such a charismatic talent.
