Lyrics:

May I suggest
May I suggest to you
May I suggest this is the best part of your life
May I suggest
This time is blessed for you
This time is blessed and shining almost blinding bright
Just turn your head
And you'll begin to see
The thousand reasons that were just beyond your sight
The reasons why
Why I suggest to you
Why I suggest this is the best part of your life

There is a world
That's been addressed to you
Addressed to you, intended only for your eyes
A secret world
Like a treasure chest to you
Of private scenes and brilliant dreams that mesmerise
A tender lover's smile
A tiny baby's hands
The million stars that fill the turning sky at night
Oh I suggest
Oh I suggest to you
Oh I suggest this is the best part of your life

There is a hope
That's been expressed in you
The hope of seven generations, maybe more
And this is the faith
That they invest in you
It's that you'll do one better than was done before
Inside you know
Inside you understand
Inside you know what's yours to finally set right
And I suggest
And I suggest to you
And I suggest this is the best part of your life

This is a song
Comes from the west to you
Comes from the west, comes from the slowly setting sun
With a request
With a request of you
To see how very short the endless days will run
And when they're gone
And when the dark descends
Oh we'd give anything for one more hour of light

And I suggest this is the best part of your life

One of the things [personal profile] renenet said to me during her Sunday morning sleepy haze was "I didn't break the con!" "No," I said, "'May I Suggest' did that."

So much love for this vid. I haven't seen the movie (I know, I know -- rectifying ASAP), but it didn't matter; the vid's narrative is so clear, and the emotion is such a perfect combination of present and understated, that it got me anyway. During the vidshow, at the start of the vid, I started to have thinky thoughts about memory and grief and collective catharsis, and then I started crying and the thinky thoughts went out the window, and I think maybe that's the best thing that could have happened to me at that moment. So, you know. Thank you for that.
