Liam Finn in St Stephen's Chapel, Parnell


The video opens with a point of view shot of the graveyard at St Stephen’s Chapel in Parnell, Auckland. We move into the candle-lit chapel itself. In the candle-lit chapel Liam’s “in the dark” lyrics are accentuated with lightning effects through the chapel windows. The video finishes with Liam strolling away from the chapel, guitar case in hand.

Lyrics

Your photo hung over the altar
Old friends dressed in black
It’s the first time
That I’ve seen you in ages
Hold on my old time bomb

[Chorus]
Everyone gather to the chapel
To the chapel
Everyone gather to the chapel
To the chapel
Everyone loved you
Yes, everyone
Everyone gather to the chapel
To the chapel

I walk through the park
Where we hung out
Some signs long ago
Try hard not to argue the obvious
Hold on my long term partner

[Chorus]

You left us in the dark
Why?
Why?
Why?
Why?

[Chorus]
