Our loves attack the sun? Hmm, not sure about that, even if it's the official lyrics - the ice cream lyrics video wasn't correct either. :teehee:

 

About the video... I think I just don't get it. Whatever. The song is genius, I don't think any kind of video could've done it justice for me - maybe except another one like Last Party, where it's just Mika singing into a camera. Or a live video, like of the Bocelli concert. Although there's too much around him as well, with dancers etc.. Maybe at some point I'll get it, if Mika talks about it in interviews, or someone here posts a thought about it that makes sense to me. But for now - video no, song YESSS! :bleh:

I believe these lyrics are the correct ones :: 

“And if it all goes bad and our love sets like the sun, I’d give up a hundred thousand loves for just this one.

We may be tiny to the world but in our hearts, we be giants with our tiny, tiny love.” ♥️ #TinyLove

Mika’s releases his brand new video for Tiny Love. Available to watch now on YouTube HERE.

Of the video Mika said:

“I knew I needed a different sort of director for this video, more art and film based. W.I.Z. was the perfect choice.

From every detail in pre-production, to the art direction and casting, he has one thing in mind;

to illustrate a complex narrative that he has written in his head. I am very proud of what he has made.

An emotionally epic video for a song full of heart and love. Huge and Tiny at the same time.”

I feel like I don't even get the most basic layers of it, not even getting started on stuff like eggs, cherries and milk bottles. :aah: I don't even know if him and the woman are supposed to be lovers in the video, it doesn't feel like a love but like a really weird relationship, like he's so vulnerable and she doesn't care at all - what it has to do with the beautiful love of the song, I really don't get. :dunno:

I think each of us can understand some scenes in a different way.

I think that the video tells the stories from different generations of Penniman families and from different points of view.

We can see old photos on the wall, black woman can be a reference to the slavery in the past in Savanah/Georgia (Mika has mentioned it in his interviews - he was talking about cotton fields next to the graveyard and he looked shocked by this part of his family's history.)

But she can be as well his (in previous generations - look at his clothes in the first scene) lover - at the beginning of the video, an overwhelming lover or looking for revenge lover. She can be someone who does not let him play music... so many different interpretations I have in my head.

 

And on the other hand this combination of HUGE and TINY... Universe and eggs (which are a symbol of life). Milky Way and cosmos...

 

All starts to be normal from the moment when Mika sings: "My name is Michael Holbrook".... It's like he decides about his life. The woman understands that she can loose him and she starts to be his support - she stands behind Mika and she holds him in his arms instead of playing piano....

Ah, I can talk and talk .....

MIKA – Tiny Love testo e traduzione

 

It’s not a sunrise over canyons shaped like hearts
It isn’t bursting into song in Central Park
It’s not the outline of your face drawn in the stars
It’s a “still-there-Monday-morning” kind of love

 

Non è un’alba a forma di cuore sui canyon
Non sta scoppiando in una canzone al Central Park
Non è il profilo del tuo viso disegnato tra le stelle
È un tipo di amore “ancora-lì-lunedì-mattina”

 

There’s no dramatic declarations in the rain
It’s not a love that finds its pleasure after pain
I couldn’t train a bunch of doves to spell your name
It’s a “don’t-know-what-the-messin'” kind of love

 

Non ci sono dichiarazioni drammatiche sotto la pioggia
Non è un amore che trova piacere dopo il dolore
Non potevo addestrare un gruppo di colombe a pronunciare il tuo nome
È un “non so che casino” di tipo di amore

 

Our kind of love, it gets better every day
Crazy colors in the grey, our love
Tiny love, it’s a tiny love

 

Il nostro tipo di amore, migliora ogni giorno
Colori strani nel grigio, il nostro amore
Piccolo amore, è un piccolo amore

 

My life was dull
I used to walk in a different way
But now I’m dancin’, dancin’, dancin’, dancin’
Don’t care who can see me dancin’

 

La mia vita è stata noiosa
Camminavo in un modo diverso
Ma ora sto ballando, ballando, ballando, ballando
Non importa chi mi vede ballare

 

Oh, tiny love
Oh, tiny love
Oh, tiny love

 

Oh, piccolo amore
Oh, piccolo amore
Oh, piccolo amore

 

This tiny love has spoken
And bigger hearts get broken
(Oh) Tiny love

 

Questo piccolo amore ha parlato
E i cuori più grandi si spezzano
(Oh) Piccolo amore

 

So small that you can’t find us
The world revolves around us
(Oh) Tiny love

 

Così piccolo che non riesci a trovarci
Il mondo gira intorno a noi
(Oh) Piccolo amore

 

This kind of love, it can’t be no other way
One kind of love blows the other ones away
Some times it’s tough, others think we’re acting strange
But it’s our kind of love, our kind of love

 

Questo tipo di amore, non può essere altrimenti
Un tipo di amore che spazza via gli altri
Alcune volte è difficile, altre pensano che ci comportiamo in modo strano
Ma è il nostro tipo di amore, il nostro tipo di amore

 

Oh, tiny love
Oh, tiny love

My name is Mika Holbrook
I was born in 1983
No, I’m not losing my mind
It’s just this thing that you do to me
You get me high on a tiny love
You get me high

 

Mi chiamo Mika Holbrook
Sono nato nel 1983
No, non sto perdendo la testa
È solo l’effetto che mi fai
Mi fai sballare per un piccolo amore
Mi fai sballare

 

And if it all goes bad
And our love sits like the sun
I’d give up a hundred thousand loves
For just this one
You get me high on a tiny love
You get me high on a tiny love

 

E se tutto va a rotoli
E il nostro amore tramonta come il sole
Rinuncerei a un centinaio di migliaia di amori
Proprio per questo
Mi fai sballare per un piccolo amore
Mi fai sballare per un piccolo amore

 

It’s not a sunrise over canyons shaped like hearts
It isn’t bursting into song in Central Park
We may be tiny to the world, but in our hearts
We be giants with our tiny, tiny love

 

Non è un’alba a forma di cuore sui canyon
Non sta scoppiando in una canzone al Central Park
Potremmo essere minuscoli nel mondo, ma nei nostri cuori
Siamo giganti con il nostro piccolo, piccolo amore

@Anna Ko Kolkowska interesting interpretation, thanks for sharing. Lol, I was never good at interpreting art or literature (never had to interpret videos at school :lmfao:), so I guess that's why I'm so lost. :doh:

YES!

BUT, I really would like to learn what that #9 on the wall is about.

You know it has to be SOMETHING!

I'm not sure we should try to explain every detail. I think it's the set of details that tells something and tries to convey an atmosphere and maybe even feelings while telling a story.

Well, I don't know if it's from numerology or something different.

 

"The number nine represents the state of achievement of fullness in some field.

It is associated with a high level of intellectual, emotional or spiritual development.

It gives control over one's own fate and influences the fate of other people.

The symbolism of this digit reminds us that each of us has the potential to change something in the world around us for the better.

Its meaning is associated with inventiveness, ingenuity and efficiency."

I focused only 9 and it doesn't make sense. On his shirt too, it has 9 like "x9x"

It's the sign of cancer.  I'm a pisces, which is how I knew. :thumb_yello:  That shirt reminds me of a tradition in school, on the last day of school you wear a shirt especially with the intention of having all your friends sign it, write messages on it.

nine months of pregnancy and eggs. This may suggest a birth or rebirth

I already love this song. I can't stop listening to it or singing it in my head. The lyrics are so intense. 

I also watched and rewatched the music video. I still don't get all the hidden meanings, but I find it very poetic. I'm just starting to come up with my interpretation, meanwhile I'm enjoying reading your versions. So many wonderful thoughts about it.

And a knife on the wall. The same knife with "cherise" blood in another take. Looks like very violent scene. Angry Mika has enough.

When I first saw the video I was thinking about a mother and son kind of love, where the mum gives part of her life for the son and the son also tries so hard to please her and be what she wanted him to be.

But now I read the idea of the 9th Penniman’s generation theory and it’s very interesting!

 

Anyway, in my mind, the video doesn’t match the song yet, LOL!

Yeah, when I started seeing the mother/child theory, I was skeptical because the lyrics to me are very much about a romantic relationship (nobody's mom gets them high :bleh:) but the details keep adding up. Anyway, Mika said that the director had a specific vision of a story line, which means it doesn't necessarily have to match the lyrics. But the eggs, milk, photo of Joanie, 9 months... plus things like the big shoes (what kid hasn't tried on their mom's shoes?) I'm starting to buy it.  I just... no mom sits on their kid's lap like that! :naughty:

You’re right, there are some details that don’t match with mother/child love (for example the wedding bands they are wearing) and, for me, the song talks about a romantic relationship too!

I hope Mika will enlighten us somehow!
