Through the Eyes of a Child【GMV】

Footage from The Last Guardian. Music by AURORA. See transcript.

Inspired by Jacob Geller’s story about he and his lovely dog. A tribute to the beautiful, human storytelling of Fumito Ueda.

The world is covered by our trails
Scars we cover up with paint
Watch them preach in sour lies
I would rather see this world through the eyes of a child
Through the eyes of a child

Darker times will come and go
Times you need to see her smile
And mothers’ hands are warm and mild
I would rather feel this world through the skin of a child
Through the skin of a child

When a human strokes your skin
That is when you let them in
Let them in before they go
I would rather feel alive with a childlike soul
With a childlike soul

Hey oh, oh hey
Oh hey
Ah-ah hey
Oh hey
Hey oh, oh hey
Oh hey
Ah-ah hey
Oh hey
Please don’t leave me here
