Leaving

This is the second video I’ve posted to YouTube. Like the first, it is a music video I made using public domain footage. I use public domain footage because I do not have access to video recording equipment and like the idea of pairing my music with a visual expression. I chose WWII footage because it seems to convey the message of the song in a way that I had not originally intended. When I first wrote the song it was out of emotional anger, a response to a personal relationship. However, as I listen to the song now and watch the WWII footage I get the impression that it could communicate the complicated emotions of a soldier dying in battle, thinking back on his life regretfully.

Perhaps you will interpret it differently.
