A fan made video examining the relationship portrayed on the show and the concept of 'spying on hope' as a means of inspiring viewers as well. This is a transformative work. No profit is made. Watch The Fabulous Beekman Boys via iTunes, Amazon, or Netflix.

(And, no, I have no idea why it runs on after the music ends. Probably because Windows Movie Maker is evil, unlike The Fabulous Beekman boys who are quite good.)

Dar Williams, "You Rise and Meet the Day"

We could pretend that we're walking on petals and light, golden light
Flaunting our love like a dance step mastered, turning from left to right
But after all the colored lights are gone
Time will leave the ashes and the dawn
You rise and meet the day

I'm watching you go, it's like spying on hope ever onward with more to burn
Giving your hands and your heart to the weave of the world, though it fights each turn
But you do not give up so easily
That's how I know you won't surrender me
You rise and meet the day
It's all I need, it's all I need to know, it's all I need to know

And I love you all the time
I had always feared that some gloomy ingratitude would seize me
But you have held the dream like every morning finds
A way to hang the sun up in the sky
And now I think I have it too --
The greatest part I learned from you
You rise and meet the day

And I can see kids, maybe ours, maybe not, ohohoh, I can hear what they'll say
Laughing at pictures with the old-fashioned hats and the clothes that we're wearing today
And they will know the true and humble power
Of love that made it through the darkest hour
You rise and meet the day
It's all I need, it's all I need to know, it's all I need to know
