can I just explain?

‘Such a natural macrocosm of real life in a 3 minute pop song. Totally won me over with its unforced charm and restraint..’ M.J.Bennet

thanks!

it’s brutal, but with jokes…
the idea is to catch something of the truth about what people say when things break up, not how it is in songs.

music:

the film is all from old super 8 footage of weddings – it took ages – but I think it really works.  Throwing  rice looks appropriately violent slowed down,  and look out for  apples of temptation over the wedding car at the end…

can I just explain?

I don’t want to fight
i don’t want to do this tonight
it was just a fling
no it didn’t mean anything

you were acting like a stranger
turning your back in the dark
now this marriage is in danger
tell me we’re not falling apart

I was working late
I had those appointments to make
she let down her hair
I could feel the thrill in the air

you were acting like a stranger
I was alone in the dark
now this marriage is in danger
tell me we’re not falling apart

would you like some tea?
would you like to throw it at me?
do you feel the same?
maybe I won’t do it again

you were acting like a stranger
turning your back in the dark
now this marriage is in danger
tell me we’re not falling apart
