Notes: I once spent about two months trying to write an epic Merlin fic in which Gwen is awesome and there is a lot of yearning and maybe a bit of threesome and I got precisely nowhere. Then I heard this song on a preview copy of July Flame and realized I could just make a vid. Thanks to the usual suspects!


I wanted to make something sweet
The blood inside the maple tree
The sunlight trapped inside the wood
Make something good

I wanted to make something strong
An organ pipe in a cathedral
That stays in tune through a thousand blooms
Make something good

It's gonna take a long, long time
But we're gonna make something so fine

I wanted to make something pure
An emerald field from steer manure
A wild-eyed child in a moonlit room
Make something good

I wanted to make something built to last
A bottled ship with a golden mast
And through the squall the course stays true
Make something good
Make something good

It's gonna take a long, long time
But we're gonna make something so fine
