Lyric Analysis

  1. 1. Oh, misty eye of the mountain below Keep careful watch of my brothers' souls And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke Keep watching over Durin's son If this is to end in fire Then we should all burn together Watch the flames climb high into the night Calling out father, stand by and we will Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side And if we should die tonight Then we should all die together Raise a glass of wine for the last time Calling out father, prepare as we will Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side Desolation comes upon the sky Now I see fire, inside the mountain I see fire, burning the trees And I see fire, hollowing souls I see fire, blood in the breeze And I hope that you'll remember me Oh, should my people fall Then surely I'll do the same Confined in mountain halls We got too close to the flame Calling out father hold fast and we will Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side Desolation comes upon the sky Now I see fire, inside the mountain I see fire, burning the trees I see fire, hollowing souls I see fire, blood in the breeze And I hope that you'll remember me And if the night is burning I will cover my eyes For if the dark returns then My brothers will die And as the sky's falling down It crashed into this lonely town And with that shadow upon the ground I hear my people screaming out Now I see fire, inside the mountain I see fire, burning the trees I see fire, hollowing souls I see fire, blood in the breeze I see fire, oh you know I saw a city burning (fire) I see fire, feel the heat upon my skin (fire) And I see fire (fire) And I see fire burn auburn on the mountain side Ed Sheeran- I See Fire Lyric Analysis
  2. 2. Oh, misty eye of the mountain below Keep careful watch of my brothers' souls And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke Keep watching over Durin's son If this is to end in fire Then we should all burn together Watch the flames climb high into the night Calling out father, stand by and we will Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side Take mountain, fire and smoke literally: Use smoke machine/ flour Create a safe fire Set the scene in a wood- film mountain background Possibly brother passed away? Use props- old photographs, teddy, items of clothing Talking to someone in the sky? Religion possibly Connotes death/disaster SINGING IN THE FOREST BROTHERS DEATH INTRODUCED FIRE AND SMOKE BEGIN
  3. 3. And if we should die tonight Then we should all die together Raise a glass of wine for the last time Calling out father, prepare as we will Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side Desolation comes upon the sky Now I see fire, inside the mountain I see fire, burning the trees And I see fire, hollowing souls I see fire, blood in the breeze And I hope that you'll remember me Drunk/Alcoholic Props – Wine Drinking from the bottle Time lapse of wood from light to dark Bonfire/line of fire Creates smoke Orange/red GETS EMOTIONALLY DRUNK TIME LAPSE – SUGGESTS SHE IS RUNNING OUT OF TIME FIRE GETS BIGGER
  4. 4. Oh, should my people fall Then surely I'll do the same Confined in mountain halls We got too close to the flame Calling out father hold fast and we will Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side Desolation comes upon the sky Now I see fire, inside the mountain I see fire, burning the trees I see fire, hollowing souls I see fire, blood in the breeze And I hope that you'll remember me Film near mountains/hills Running away through the woods Slow motion/fast pace Chorus Fire in the trees Smoke machine Editing – twinkling lights Chorus Prop -Old picture of her brother He’s dead? Cliff hanger Editing – Inspired by Ed Sheeran Give me love Overlaying long shot Multiple characters RUNNING THROUGH FOREST – INCREASES PACE OVERLAYING IMPLIES SHE IS DISAPEARING
  5. 5. And if the night is burning I will cover my eyes For if the dark returns then My brothers will die And as the sky's falling down It crashed into this lonely town And with that shadow upon the ground I hear my people screaming out Now I see fire, inside the mountain I see fire, burning the trees I see fire, hollowing souls I see fire, blood in the breeze I see fire, oh you know I saw a city burning (fire) I see fire, feel the heat upon my skin (fire) And I see fire (fire) And I see fire burn auburn on the mountain side Filmed in the evening Editing -Flames reflecting in her eyes (eyes closed and when open fire appears) Low – level lighting Sun setting – not too dark because we want a clear picture Long shot of forest, female singing Brother in distant background Shot of flame cracking in dark Sound effects of fire engine Connotes she has burned herself to death NIGHT TIME LAST TIME SHE WILL OPEN HER EYES/SEE THE WORLD BROTHERS WATCHING OVER HER BURNS HERSELF IN FIRE
