Christina Perri - "The Words" [Music Video Premiere!]
You know what “The Words” Christina Perri refers in her new single are. They’re: “I love you”.
The Philadelphia singer-songwriter is release a new single from her “Head or Heart” album and the chosen song is the beautiful ballad “The Words”, co-written by Ms. Perri, David Ryan Harris and David Hodges, and produced by Butch Walker.
Since Valentine’s Day is so close, I think releasing this love song is THE perfect choice.
Christina premiered this morning of January 26th the official music video for “The Words” on VEVO. Watch the Philippe Paille-directed visual below:
I too was left a bit confused when finishing watching the above MV but YouTube user Nikka Rose’s explanation will clarify it all: “At first, I thought she was dead, haunting him like a ghost. Then, I was wondering what's with the orchids? But in the end, I realized that they were just meeting each other for the first time. I think he's always seen her at the flower shop and has been thinking about her which is why he feels her presence near him all the time. I think the song represents taking a chance at love again as they finally come together. “
Aww! I thought she was a ghost in the beginning too. But just as Christina says in the song; “’Cause love is a ghost you can’t control”. She used this lyric to come up with the video treatment. So she isn’t technically a ghost. She caused a huge first impression on this guy and he’s been fantasizing about her (making her seem like a “ghost”) ever since, and he knows she goes a lot to the flower shop so he decides to pop over one more time and voila! Christina is there and they can finally speak and say “the words”.
