Criminal Intent - You Could be Happy (video)

If you are receiving this as an email update, please click on the title to see the video on the blog.

Several months ago my friend Susan created a video in her head! She shared the song she had used and broke the lyrics down as shown below.

She said "It's moot now, but it was suitable for after Loyalty, and before the announcements of their return." I don't suppose this video even comes close to what she had "in mind".

I hope you enjoy it anyway Susan! It's safe to watch seeing they're coming back! Merry Christmas!

"You Could Be Happy" (Snow Patrol)

Eames to Goren:

You could be happy and I won't know
But you weren't happy the day I watched you go

And all the things that I wished I had not said
Are played in loops 'till it's madness in my head

Is it too late to remind you how we were
But not our last days of silence, screaming, blur

Most of what I remember makes me sure
I should have stopped you from walking out the door

Goren to Eames:

You could be happy, I hope you are
You made me happier than I'd been by far

Somehow everything I own smells of you
And for the tiniest moment it's all not true

Do the things that you always wanted to
Without me there to hold you back, don't think, just do

More than anything I want to see you, girl
Take a glorious bite out of the whole world
If you are in Germany, YouTube will not permit you to see this video, so I have made it available on Vimeo (where I personally think it plays better!)

  1. I read the lyrics...now I understand...sniff.

  2. Loved the video. Very beautiful. Those words are really them. Thank you for such a beautiful video.

  3. Great video, song and lyrics! Really enjoyed all of them...thank you! I'm getting really excited counting down the days that CI will actually start filming. "To dream the impossible dream..." You got that right! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and all good things in the New Year! Thank you for everything!

  4. This is even better than I envisioned, Suzanne! Thank you so much! It's wonderful! And such a lovely gift for Christmas!

    It's so great to be able to escape my troubles by viewing your vids. They give me a lift...a jolt...a moment of fantasy.

    You are the best!!
