Video: Hold On to Me ~ Maggie/Victor (Days of our Lives)  
Song: Hold On (edited)
Artist: Michael Bublé
Summary: As Maggie and Victor grow closer, they hold on to one another while struggling over their contrasting principles.

This song is so beautiful. When I heard it a few weeks ago I thought how it explains so well the struggle that Maggie and Victor went through.

Here's the general outline I worked with:
He finally connected with the woman of his dreams
But he knew he couldn't change for her
Yet he knew how much he needed her
And he feared he couldn't change to keep her
He had faith that some day they could be together
He thought his lies would keep and protect her
Then he was stunned by the pain of almost losing her
Because she tried to protect him despite his lies
She was the best thing that ever happened to him

Editor's Note: I debated long and hard about editing the song. I played around with cutting it several ways and when I got this version I started visualizing the sequences immediately so I went with it. But after I put it all together I didn't like how the first 2 minutes seemed to drag. I tried "fixing" it a bunch of different ways but all that did was make it feel chopped up and the back half totally lose it's impact. That's when I realized this is really all about how amazing John and Suzanne are.
