i just.. . can’t get over sign of the times. there is so much feeling in it - hope, desperation, strength, vulnerability, pain, love, bravery - and all of it is so palpable, i feel like i can taste it in the air while the song’s playing. he pulls you in at the very first note and tangles you into his soul with every note after that. the energy in his voice just. it washes over you, wave after wave, like an ocean of electricity and emotion.
Just One Yesterday is a fantastic song that I found had a bit of… correlation with Supernatural and Destiel in general. It’s by Fall Out Boy featuring the Foxes and I highly recommend listening to it.
I thought of angels Choking on their halos Get them drunk on rose water See how dirty I can get them Pulling out their fragile teeth And clip their tiny wings
This is Dean expressing his anger towards angels in Season 5 (?) when Sam reveals to him he believed in them. It’s mainly because Young Mary said, “angels are watching over you,” and she died by Azazel causing Dean to think they didn’t care or didn’t exist.
Anything you say can and will be held against you So only say my name It will be held against you Anything you say can and will be held against you So only say my name
This isn’t really deep but I see it as Cas and Dean going on adventures pretending to be agents. It may be a little kinky, too ;)
If heaven’s grief brings hell’s rain Then I’d trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
When Cas died, you saw Dean kneeling next to him very distraught. Dean would rather have no future if he could just spend one more second with Cas alive- even if it means Jack destroys the Earth.
(I know you’re bad news)
The phrase, “He’s in love with humanity,” is famous within the fandom. Cas is rather fond or possibly in love (as much as an angel can be) with Dean and he knows it’s wrong.
(I saved it all for you)
Cas betrayed heaven for Dean, he raised him from hell, he damaged his wings to bring him back. All for him.
I want to teach you a lesson in the worst kind of way
Dean has tried to separate from Sam and Cas (Lisa and Ben, Deanmon) but it ends up hurting them. He thinks no one can love him because they all die. Or it’s just kinky.
Letting people down is my thing baby
This is Dean saying he always disappoints and everyone he loves dies.
Find yourself a new gig This town ain’t big enough for two of us
Dean wants Cas to move on despite his love/companionship he wants and needs and puts on a tough exterior even though he’s really just bluffing.
I don’t have the right name Or the right looks But I have twice the heart
Cas hasn’t always fit in as a human whether it’s his name, how he dresses, or just as a fake FBI partner for Dean but he has the passion to be a hunter and possibly Dean’s love interest.
If I spilled my guts The world would never look at you the same way And I’m here to give you all of my love So I can watch your face as I take it all away
This is Casifer because even fucking Lucifer knows Dean and Cas are in love. He knows even if they eventually kill him nothing will be the same after for either of them. Lucifer took Jimmy’s vessel pretending to be Cas knowing Dean would be easily to manipulate that way.
Okay! So those are all of my thoughts on the song and how it translates into the show. It’s obviously longer but the chorus repeats a lot and I removed that to make it easier to read.
If you want to make a fan edit or something based on this post, please do! I’d love to see what you guys can do with this.
