What I Must Do

A small song with a big heart. Piano and strings help tell the story of a couple walking home through a snowstorm and what would happen if they lost each other along the way.


Music Video

I did the illustrations and animations for this video. Fun fact: The video features my girlfriend, who I would later marry.

Lyrics

Hand-in-hand we walk through the cold
trying to get home. Trying to get home.
And if through the storm it's your hand I lose,
lost and confused I'll be reaching for you.

'Cause all of my life I'll wait here for you.
If waiting for you is what I must do.
And all of my failures and all that I do
If they lead me to you it's what I must do.

Hand-in-hand we walk through the cold
trying to get home. Trying to get home.
And if through the storm you find someone new,
sad and confused I'll be happy for you.

'Cause all of my life I'll wait here for you.
If waiting for you is what I must do.
And all of my failures and all that I do
If they lead me to you it's what I must do
