“And I’ve moved further than I thought I could But I miss you more than I thought I would Oh I’ll use you as a warning sign That if you talk enough sense, then you’ll lose your mind And I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be Right in front of me, talk some sense to me”
This song makes me think about Stiles trying to stop Derek from leaving
“But I’m not just a fuck-up, I’m the fuck-up you need I don’t hear nobody when you focus on me Perfectly imperfect, yeah, I hope that you see Tell me you see ‘Cause I know that you’ve been thinking 'bout it Don’t leave Shut your mind off and let your heart breathe You don’t need to be worried I may not ever get my shit together But ain’t nobody gonna love you better”
And this one reminds me of Stiles when Derek returns - angry at him for leaving him but thankful that he came back
“Where were you When everything was falling apart? All my days Spent by the telephone That never rang And all I needed was a call That never came From the corner of First and Amistad Lost and insecure You found me, you found me Lying on the floor Surrounded, surrounded Why’d you have to wait? Where were you, where were you? Just a little late You found me, you found me”
This one makes me think of Derek pining after Stiles and missing his constant voice.
“This separation, time and space between us For some revelation You didn’t even care to discuss I’d rather be black and blue Than accept that you withdrew Aah, just tell me Say anything Anything hurts less than the quiet”
I’m currently writing a fic based on this one. It just gives me so many Sterek feels. How I imagine it could have gone down if Stiles caught Derek before he left.
“Look, don’t get me wrong I know there is no tomorrow All I ask is If this is my last night with you Hold me like I’m more than just a friend Give me a memory I can use Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do It matters how this ends 'Cause what if I never love again?“
The music and sound of this song feel Stereky to me and the lyrics are pretty epically Derek in parts
“Stranded in this spooky town Stoplight is swaying and the phone lines are down Floor is crackling cold She took my heart, I think she took my soul With the moon I run Far from the carnage of the fiery sun“
“If I could break away half of all your pain I’d take the worst of it and carry you like you carry me You say that you’re alright when tears are in your eyes We’re strong enough for this and I need you It’s okay that you need me So put your armor on the ground tonight Cause everyone’s got to come down sometimesYou don’t have to be Superman You don’t have to be Superman You don’t have to hold the world in your hands You’ve already shown me that you can Don’t have to be Superman”
A catchy little song with a great idea of Stiles getting out of the Supernatural chaos at college only to miss it (and Derek)
“Its been what? A half a year Like nothing ever happen in-between us I fill you in on how you’ve been And I would tell you anything you’d like to hear now And we can laugh some Reminisce some From the same old stories to the new ones When the nights done, I will just see you around But that’s not what I came here for, my amour I hate to admit it but I miss the war Gotta get you under fire quick Brace for it I’d rather be a riot than be indifferent This means war, yeah This means, this means, this mean this means war”
The Script are my faves. This song is full of Stiles trying to reach Derek.
“Did you lose what won’t return? Did you love but never learn? The fire’s out but still it burns And no one cares, there’s no one there… But did you see the flares in the sky? Were you blinded by the light? Did you feel the smoke in your eyes? Did you, did you? Did you see the sparks filled with hope? You are not alone 'Cause someone’s out there, sending out flares“
And keeping with my lovely Danny O’Donoghue of The Script, this one is slower and romantical and fluffy and lovely.
“I may not have the softest touch I may not say the words as such And though I may not look like much I’m yours And though my edges may be rough And never feel I’m quite enough It may not seem like very much But I’m yours“
“You’ve held your head up You’ve fought the fight You bear the scars You’ve done your time Listen to me You’ve been lonely, too long… You’re like a mirror, reflecting me Takes one to know one, so take it from me You’ve been lonely You’ve been lonely, too long“
Because there needs to be some upbeat feel-good dancey stuff on the list too.
“Fell in love on accident Now it doesn’t matter You got to me You saw through me You’re in for it now You’re all I wanna do I only wanna dance with you“
Shine - Years & Years
I love Years & Years and this is another upbeat happier one that fits a bit
“I was biting my tongue I was trying to hide (Ooh oh oh oh, ooh oh oh ooh) I’ll forget what I’ve done I’ll be redefined It’s shaking the sky And I’m following lightning I’ll recover if you keep me alive Don’t leave me behind Can you see me I’m shining And it’s you that I’ve been waiting to find“
A new one I heard on the radio and fell in love with the beat and chorus and instantly thought of my babies for whatever reason (possibly because I’m always thinking of them…)
“I’ve been reading books of old The legends and the myths Achilles and his gold Hercules and his gifts Spiderman’s control And Batman with his fists And clearly I don’t see myself upon that list… She said "Where’d you wanna go? How much you wanna risk? I’m not looking for somebody With some superhuman gifts Some superhero Some fairytale bliss Just something I can turn to Somebody I can kiss” want something just like this“
I Wanna - The All-American Rejects
Just a bit of fun really
“I wanna, I wanna, I wanna touch you You wanna touch me too”
We want to blame her for the length of her skirt We want to blame him for not walking her home We want to blame her for the hour of night We want to blame him for not teaching her better We want to blame her for being visible We want to blame him for not keeping her unseen
All this instead of blaming them for the bat that beat her Them for the hands that took her Them for the body that raped her Them for the hate that killed her
and in the end you’re still my FRIEND at least we did intend for us to WORK we didn’t BREAK, we didn’t BURN we had to learn how to BEND without the world CAVING IN i had to learn what i’ve GOT, and what i’m NOT and who i AM I WON’T GIVE UP ON US
Round two of my lyric dump for tonight! Woohoo! I’m so excited to put these out I like how they turned out and I hope y’all do too. These requested by @valwyrie (thank you again and apologies for the wait), so here we go: singable English lyrics for Shunjou Romantic are under the cut!
✞ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ✞
Father Through Jesus, Your Son You sent the Paraclete to be at our side To reconcile all creation to You
Grant that we may be forever open To Jesus’ invitation to Receive the Holy Spirit
Father, open our hearts to accept Your forgiveness for our sins And to offer that same forgiveness To those who we feel have offended us
For merciful forgiveness Is the essence of Your love Revealed in Your Son
Come, O Divine Spirit Fill our hearts with Your heavenly fruits
Your Charity Joy Peace Patience Kindness Goodness Faith Gentleness And Self-control That we may By faithful submission to Your inspiration Merit to be united eternally with You In the love of the Father And the Son
For those of us who live at the shoreline standing upon the constant edges of decision crucial and alone for those of us who cannot indulge the passing dreams of choice who love in doorways coming and going in the hours between dawns looking inward and outward at once before and after seeking a now that can breed futures like bread in our children’s mouths so their dreams will not reflect the death of ours:
For those of us who were imprinted with fear like a faint line in the center of our foreheads learning to be afraid with our mother’s milk for by this weapon this illusion of some safety to be found the heavy-footed hoped to silence us For all of us this instant and this triumph We were never meant to survive.
And when the sun rises we are afraid it might not remain when the sun sets we are afraid it might not rise in the morning when our stomachs are full we are afraid of indigestion when our stomachs are empty we are afraid we may never eat again when we are loved we are afraid love will vanish when we are alone we are afraid love will never return and when we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard nor welcomed but when we are silent we are still afraid So it is better to speak remembering we were never meant to survive.
