Happy Mother’s Day, soundtrack: Thinking Out Loud

There’s a video I want to make to the song “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran.

When your legs don’t work like they used to before
And I can’t sweep you off of your feet

Video of a little girl taking her first steps, fading into her being swept up and spun around by her mother, both laughing

Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?

A baby nursing, then smiling and laughing as a toddler

And, darling, I will be loving you ’til we’re 70
And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23

An older woman, hugging her grown daughter, fading into helping her daughter straighten her veil and gown at her wedding

And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Well, me – I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am

A baby, grasping her mother’s finger with a tiny hand, scenes of a mother and her daughter playing and walking together through all seasons and stages of the daughter’s life

So honey now
Take me into your loving arms

Child throwing her arms around her mother’s neck

Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are

A mother and her children looking at constellations, them climbing into her lap, kissing her cheek, and resting heads on her breast, hold scene with her arms around her children and all smiling

When my hair’s all but gone and my memory fades
And the crowds don’t remember my name

A very old woman, looking at photo albums of her life and her children as they grew up

When my hands don’t play the strings the same way (mmm…)
I know you will still love me the same

A mother playing guitar for her children

‘Cause honey your soul could never grow old, it’s evergreen
And, baby, your smile’s forever in my mind and memory

Children, an older girl and younger boy, playing and smiling and running and laughing

I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe it’s all part of a plan

A girl holding her new baby brother for the first time, her mother helping and showing her how, scene lingers on their expressions

Well, I’ll just keep on making the same mistakes
Hoping that you’ll understand

Mother trying to help her children with a project and it collapsing/breaking/dramatically not working, tears (from the mother as well) and hugs and trying again

That, baby, now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
Thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are (oh ohh)

Children pulling their mother outside to see a meteor shower, hugging her while all watch the showers, her showing them how to close eyes and make a wish, her arms around them and kissing their hair, them leaning against her

So, baby, now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Oh, darling, place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are
Oh, baby, we found love right where we are
And we found love right where we are

A sofa, daybed, or bed, children in pyjamas cuddling up to their mother as she reads to them; they climb into her lap, rest their heads on her breast and fall asleep contentedly as she holds them and bows her head over them, smiling.

Happy Mother’s Day.
