    “I am alone and I like it.” I thought this was the saddest line ever. Then “baby I’m still cold.” Wahhhhhhhhhhh! By the end I’m pretty much lying on the floor having a mental breakdown crawling to the fridge for ice cream.

    But, wow Arrow’s tampon badge is awesome!!!

    holy crud, that made me really sad. but like I liked it? I loved the video, but the whole concept kinda just mellowed me down into a tiny place of sad.

        Chrome worked thanks! So beautiful.

    This is lovely. . . And relatable? Arrow looks like me with her really skinny tall-ness, and I dress similarly, and I’m alone a lot. It’s not as pretty, especially because I’m not in California though. . . AND THE SONG IS AWESOME.

    This is amazing. Just… wow. There are no words to describe how much i love this.

  • StellaBerlin February 12th, 2013 4:22 PM

    I haven’t fallen in love yet, but somehow, I find this video incredibly relatable. I probably don’t know what I’m talking about but everything about it felt perfect…

  • Martinapovolo February 12th, 2013 4:55 PM

    are her legs edited? They’re so long and beautiful

    • Ms.O February 12th, 2013 5:44 PM

      do you think rookie would post a video where a girl has legs that were skinny-fied? :)

  • silvermist February 12th, 2013 6:32 PM

    wow, this reminds me so much of this place in england where i stayed for some months and the walks i used to take by myself listening to music when i felt sad or alone.

  • sunshine February 12th, 2013 7:06 PM

    Arrow’s appearance is hauntingly beautiful. Truly love this. And umm Keaton Henson… could this get any better??

  • JillianYvette February 12th, 2013 7:43 PM

    Keaton Henson is so wonderful. I love him! I freaked out when I saw his name on the homepage and clicked on the article like nobody’s business.

  • MissKnowItAll February 12th, 2013 7:49 PM

    I’m sort of fying because of the bloody tampon.
    god bless this video

  • sunshineyy February 12th, 2013 7:50 PM

    Thisissoawesome. That girl is so amazing. I want to be her friend.

  • flowerchild49 February 12th, 2013 10:50 PM

    She reminds me of Sam Weir in the best possible way.

  • Jolien February 13th, 2013 1:19 AM

    I love it when girls look like awkward boys in dresses.

  • willowrox9 February 13th, 2013 2:21 AM

    DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE THE DRESS IS FROM????

  • zooeypeach February 13th, 2013 5:55 AM

    I love Keaton and have listened to his Mahogany Session (?) version on repeat many days the past several months. I guess sad music is my thing and Keaton does it better than most. Bravo for highlighting such a deserving artist. Honesty in art is the jacket’s tampon pin -excruciating, though the honesty in Lying to You is. This song has meant much to me.

  • ellajean February 13th, 2013 10:40 AM

    I’m so so addicted to this even though it makes me want to sob forever

  • rockslita February 13th, 2013 12:25 PM

    Her voice! <3_<3

  • Maren Elisabeth February 13th, 2013 3:48 PM

    I didn’t think I could love rookie more

  • marthabiff February 13th, 2013 5:34 PM

    This makes me cry, in a good way

  • mrsfigg February 13th, 2013 6:59 PM

    How can I buy this song?? It’s so beautiful.

    OH MAH GAWD
    everything was so amazing… arrow is perfect, her outfit is so cool (loving that tampie badge) and the song is so beautiful, i want to cry.

  • Jane Irina February 14th, 2013 10:01 AM

    I find this video sad and calming at the same time. It is just simply LOVELY!

    ugh what is this, suburban american neighbourhood with a melancholic afternoon haze of light doesn’t fit music made in London.

    Keaton made it 1000000000 times better himself, all of his videos directed by himself are prettier and fit way better his music, like an extension of himself.

  • Jolien May 8th, 2013 4:57 PM

    She reminds me of a boy I used to be best friends with.
