This video should come with a box of tissues and a warning: It will make your throat knot and your chest compress.

You'll experience it just like Love Drunk videographer Jillian Liesemeyer did, about two minutes into Omaha indie-folk band Blue Bird's shoot for the song "Give Me Light."

"I've got one go at being alive," Blue Bird frontwoman Marta Fiedler sings, "and I want to put my arms up for the ride." It's an appropriate sentiment, but you may want to drop your hands to wave air at your face when you see what happens here. It helps.
