Vid: Sherlock/John - Shot In The Dark


Title: Shot In The Dark
Music: Within Temptation - Shot In The Dark
Pairing: Sherlock/John | Sherlock-centric
Rating: PG (at least I think so)
Warning: Spoilers for series two.
Disclaimer: No copyright infringement intended.
Summary: After the Fall, John isn't the only one who has to deal with the emotional consequences.
AN: Fill for a prompt over at sherlockbbc_fic. The song is much faster paced than the ones I usually choose for a vid but the lyrics are simply perfect for a post-Reichenbach scenario, so I had to give it a try, even if I'm not completely happy with the ending.






"Shot In The Dark"

I’ve been left out alone like a damn criminal
I’ve been praying for help cause I can’t take it all
I’m not done,
It’s not over.
Now I’m fighting this war since the day of the fall
And I’m desperately holding on to it all
But I’m lost
I’m so damn lost

Oh I wish it was over,
And I wish you were here
Still I’m hoping that somehow

‘Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It’s all in my hands
What can I do?
Don’t let it fall apart
A shot in the dark

In the blink of an eye
I can see through your eyes
As I’m lying awake I’m still hearing the cries
And it hurts
Hurts me so bad
And I’m wondering why I still fight in this life
‘Cause I’ve lost all my faith in this damn bitter strife
And it’s sad
It’s so damn sad

Oh I wish it was over,
And I wish you were here
Still I’m hoping that somehow

‘Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It’s all in my hands
What can I do?
Don’t let it fall apart
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark

I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away

‘Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It’s all in my hands
What can I do?
Don’t let it fall apart
Oh, your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It’s all in my hands
What can I do?
Don’t let it fall apart
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark

I do like this, though the abrupt ending surprised me.

Yeah, I'm not happy with the ending myself. The problem was that the song goes on and on and on at a very fast pace and there isn't enough footage that fits in the right way, so this was the only point to end the vid even when it was less than optimal.

Thank you so much for leaving a comment.
