Shot in the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa, nature is frozen in time, enclosed behind protective glass and two solitary characters exist in their work and in isolation from each other, until a beautiful moment. “For me this has always been a song sung from someone held apart - convalescing maybe, notes Tim “from someone dreaming of being alive and close to love and something important.” 

“Tim and I both grew up in Newfoundland,” says director Jordan Canning. “As teenagers we spent summer nights skipping stones on middle cove beach, driving up to Southside Hills to explore the cliffs, and playing spotlight in the woods, our flashlight beams scanning the trees for our friends. Nature was always within easy reach. Years later, we both find ourselves living in Toronto. Here, you can go days without stepping foot on a patch of grass. Everywhere you look there is concrete and steel and plastic and people. And when you look away it is usually to stare down at a phone or computer screen”

LYRICS:
here’s to the other side lifted high
you get to the riverside to see the valley rise

sorrow or joy, which do you like?
if that’s the choice, then why cant you decide?

is there nothing left? only rusty flats
a chain link fence pressin into your hands
we’ll get you up and over it
‘cause i want nothing between us

i want to dance with you, that’s what i want to do
i want to dance with you, i want to see you body move
i want to dance with you, that’s all i want to do
i want to dance with you…

i miss our younger years, i stretch to touch them
smoke up the cavalier, and keep the windows shut

do you wanna go back? well you know you can’t
it’s like a chain link fence pressing into your back
but i got you now
i don’t care about what you were before i came
just come out with me tonight

i want to dance with you, that’s what i want to do
i want to dance with you, i want to see you body move
i want to dance with you, that’s all i want to do
i want to dance with you…
