Wednesday Fluff!

I’m really mesmerised and intrigued by Albania’s Eurovision entry. I keep coming back to this video because I think there are layers of interesting visual things going on here.

The artist is Juliana Pasha, and the song is ‘All About You.’

Description and lyrics below the cut.

Video description: The video opens with a woman in a white dress and dark jacket, lying on a stone bench. She gets up, shedding the jacket, and draws a balloon on the bench with chalk. It animates and floats away. The video cuts to her lying on the forest floor, holding shells. She is surrounded with images and mementos, suggestive of a lost relationship, and rises to touch a tree, which turns white as she runs away and lies down again next to a set of man’s clothes laid out on the forest floor. Two women in long robes printed with tree patterns embrace each other in the distance.

Cut to the woman running in the woods, where she encounters another woman in white. Another cut and she is decorated with body paint designs of birds and branches, moving her hands sinuously. Cut again to her facing a man, and then embracing him. We see her next on a couch suspended between two trees and covered in a white throw. The video cuts back and forth between her on the couch and her embracing the man.

Then we see her balancing on a fallen tree, walking barefoot. She runs through the woods, and we cut to a scene of her dropping out of the man’s arms. The video cuts between various scenes of her lying on the forest floor, and standing with long white ribbons trailing from her hands, before showing her floating on a bed in the middle of a lake. As the video closes, we see her in the same pose she was in at the start of the video, with the drawn-in balloon in chalk positioned as though she is holding it.

Lyrics:

You are the one, you give me that something I need
It’s me, and I’m calling
You are the one, making it easy to be
In love with you I’m falling

We been down
But don’t you know we been down here
And I feel it, even now
Time that we make a deal and seal it

It’s all about you, the things that I do
The rest of the world don’t understand me
You’re all that I dream, everything that I need
‘Cause when you are gone, I feel so empty

It’s all in the way you look at me
You’re driving me crazy
It’s all about you, all the things that I do
You are my life, ’cause you make it amazing

I’m the one who doesn’t know how to say no
To you I’m so easy
I’m the one, who’s letting my ego just go
For you complete me

We’ve been down
But something tells me it’s only getting better
So stick around, I wanna know what it feels like
Forever and ever

It’s all about you, the things that I do
The rest of the world don’t understand me
You’re all that I dream, everything that I need
‘Cause when you are gone, I feel so empty

It’s all in the way you look at me
You’re driving me crazy
It’s all about you, all the things that I do
You are my life ’cause you make it amazing

I’m never alone with the loving you give me
Wherever I go, I’m hoping you miss me
Don’t wanna ever go back, never ever go back
Baby you’re my destiny, oh yeah

It’s all about you, the things that I do
The rest of the world don’t understand me
You’re all that I dream, everything that I need
‘Cause when you are gone, I feel so empty

It’s all in the way you look at me
You’re driving me crazy
It’s all about you, all the things that I do
You are my life, ’cause you make it amazing, oh yeah

It’s all about you
