The problem with the first two ideas I had was that the songs didn't really leave any room for remixing in order to tell a story. Each and every lyric went towards telling the same story so it wasn't too open to interpretation. I tried cutting parts of the songs and merging other parts but in the end they just didn't make any sense and I couldn't find a visual to match what I wanted to do. But as I was walking to another class, Luxury was dequeued from my 'up next' Queue and it was love at first sight. I knew it was the one. So I played around with it in Audacity and I realized that only the chorus takes away from my interpretation because everything else can have multiple meanings. So (mind you I just downloaded Audacity) I tried cutting the chorus and merging the other parts to make the transition 'as seamless as possible', but this was really tough and so because of my lack of audio editing skills, I couldn't make it perfect unfortunately. 

And along the way I realized 'the perfect love story' to match this was obviously Twilight. 

No, I thought of 'The Fault in Our Stars'. At first, I was going to go through the entire movie and find clips that matched the lyrics that I kept in the song. But that would've been a pain and people had already done that on YouTube for other songs. So I took a couple of theirs and found clips that were exhaustive enough for me. It was easy enough to split the clips and put them in the right places and either speed up or slow down the individual clips, but it was annoying using iMovie because you can't do as much there as you can with something like Sony Vegas so it was challenging to make it at least viewable in my eyes.
