OOC post: FST Post: Song x Xemnas (WIP)

I COMPLETELY blame the 3 Days of Heart logs for making me go back and look up songs for Song and Xemnas in Canon. :D This is...a rather "tragic romance" fst. Meaning it's just about as much romantic as it is full of angst. And a smattering of just about every type of music I listen to.

I'll upload the music and organize this later, this is just for my reference...and a placeholder. When the post title no longer says WIP, it'll be finished. :D

1. Carrie Underwood - Ever Ever After
The Dreaming. Fairytale endings. Wishes, Hope. Dreams.

Storybook endings, fairy tales coming true
Deep down inside we want to believe they still do
And a secret is taught, it's our favourite part of the story
Let's just admit we all want to make it too

2. Madredeus - O Pastor
"I remember nothing."
Xemnas doesn't remember his past. Or perhaps can't. But that isn't clear yet. Song shares his wish of the Dreaming and learns that she is the Angel of Dreams. The Wheel Turns.

O PastorThe Shepherd
Ai que ninguém volta
Ao que já deixou
Ninguém larga a grande roda
Ninguém sabe onde é que andou
Ai que ninguém lembra
Nem o que sonhou
E aquele menino canta
A cantiga do pastor
Ao largo
Ainda arde
A barca
Da fantasia
E o meu sonho acaba tarde
Deixa a alma de vigia
Ao largo
Ainda arde
A barca
Da fantasia
E o meu sonho acaba tarde
Acordar é que eu não queria
Ao largo
Ainda arde
A barca
Da fantasia
E o meu sonho acaba tarde
Deixa a alma de vigia
Ao largo
Ainda arde
A barca
Da fantasia
E o meu sonho acaba tarde
Acordar é que eu não queria
Nobody comes back
to what he already left
nobody resigns the big wheel
nobody knows where it went
Nobody remembers
what he dreamt
And that boy sings
the shepherd's song
Out at sea
still burns
the boat
of fantasy
and my dream ends up slowly
it leaves my soul into watch
Out at sea
still burns
the boat
of fantasy
and my dream ends up slowly
wake me up I would not
Out at sea
still burns
the boat
of fantasy
and my dream ends up slowly
it leaves my soul into watch
Out at sea
still burns
the boat
of fantasy
and my dream ends up slowly
wake me up I would not

3. Savage Garden - Crash and Burn
"I'm doing this for them. I want to save them all. I want to save Xemnas." Song's desire to save Xemnas...somehow someway. To show him who he could be. What the world could be.

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You're caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and
You feel like you can't face the day

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

'Cause there has always been heartache and pain
And when it's over you'll breathe again
You'll breathe again

4. Ellegarden - Middle of Nowhere
songbyrd3 (8:55:39 PM): Just let me try. Xemnas... I want to dream with you. Let me try to show you. If I fail. If you simply cannot understand, then I will no longer waste your time. Give me at least one chance, however.

twilightsith001 (8:55:54 PM): No.

songbyrd3 (8:56:02 PM): Why refuse?
twilightsith001 (8:56:05 PM): ...

twilightsith001 (8:56:07 PM): Fine. Try me.
twilightsith001 (8:56:31 PM): There is nothing which can stay me from my path. I have a vision. No one, not you, not your friends, not the will of the universe itself will stop me.

Think about your situation understand your refusal
Disagreement disappointment
Disapproval discontent
Your conviction your stubborness
Your emotion your confusion
I won't deny you, I won't ignore you
Do you hear me as I sing here?

Do you think about your dream when you are falling down?
I can help you smile bravely if you have something you really
Do you think about your dream when no one believes you?
I can help you spread your wings

5. Missy Higgins - Nightminds
songbyrd3 (9:02:59 PM): It's beautiful. Your vision. Truly it is, but Ryuu was right. It just is not time yet. There may well be another way. Perhaps it already exists somewhere.
One of the new Refugees suggested a computer program similar to the Matrix, if you are familiar with that movie. It seemed plausible, but it would not be real. I realize that. I want to see the Dreaming. I really do. It is true, what I told you about it being the dream of my heart. But only at a fair cost.

You were blessed by
a different kind of inner view: it's all magnified.
The highs will make you fly,
but the lows make you want to die.
And I was once there,
hanging from that very ledge where you are standing.
So I know, I know, I know,
it's easier to let go.

But I will learn to breathe this ugliness you see,
so we can both be there and we can both share the dark.
And in our honesty, together we will rise out of our nightminds
and into the light at the end of the fight.

6. Evermore - Light Surrounding You
But there is one more thing. There is one more word.
First there is light. There IS presence. There is definitely
something here.
And he is there. At last it is
his voice. He has his back turned to her, and he, too, is wearing white.
"... light," he says, not seeing her. "I am tired."
And yet it is somehow not him. There is something here which suggests that he is not even aware of this part of his mind, that this is something that not even Aqua and Terra know. That this is some secret she has stumbled on.

I see you by the water
Your toes dipped in the sand
I thought that it was over
I thought you'd understand
But the feeling is returning
Though time has made us change
And I understand if you don't
Wanna talk to me about it
Oh, tonight

Cos I see the light surrounding you
So don't be afraid of something new

7. Switchfoot - Daylight to Break
"Yes. Please. I can't know when I'm awake. I can't get through to myself," he laughs, bitterly. "Please, save me." He's practically clinging to her now, almost like a child. It's so very unlike any Xemnas anyone has ever seen. "I'm... frightened, too. I don't want to die, either. But I want to rest, I'm so tired of all of this."

back in the tragedy
I've made a mess of me
my bitter means my bitter ends
I've seen the irony
it gets the best of me
dying to be made new again

Waiting for daylight to break up this room
waiting for daylight to break
I've been alone in the dark
I've been dreaming the day when dreamers are awake
The sun hits my eyes and everything's alright
I've been waking up without you
I've been waking up without you
I've been roaring at arms till you were in my arms
I've been waking without you
I've been waking up without you for too long

8. Frou Frou - Let Go
"I... a lot of things. Fear, a little. I don't think your people are going to accept me very happily. But also... joy. There's so much to see!" he looked up at the sky, his face bright with wonder. "The clouds, the sky... and other things that I'm not even sure about. Strange things."

So, let go, let go
Jump in
Oh well, what you waiting for?
It's all right
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown
So, let go, l-let go
Just get in
Oh, it's so amazing here
It's all right
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown

9. Nickelback - Savin' Me
"Being here, standing here, it's like standing on the edge of a cliff and I'm about to fall off and yet I'm not and I'm scared but I think, ok, maybe it's ok if I fall off. Maybe falling isn't so bad. Maybe I'll learn to fly if I just let go, I don't know..."

Show me what it's like
To be the last one standing
And teach me wrong from right
And I'll show you what I can be
Say it for me
Say it to me
And I'll leave this life behind me
Say it if it's worth saving me

Heaven's gates won't open up for me
With these broken wings I'm fallin'
And all I see is you
These city walls ain't got no love for me
I'm on the ledge of the eighteenth story
And oh I scream for you
Come please I'm callin'
And all I need from you
Hurry I'm fallin', I'm fallin'

10. Nickelback - Far Away
So many mistakes. "What can change the nature of Man?"

This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there's just one left
'Cause you know,
you know, you know

That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore

11. Missy Higgins - Any Day Now
She sniffled a little, trying really hard not to cry, but damnit tragic romance always got to her in stories, and now that it was real...
"I love you. And I shouldn't. I know I shouldn't... how can you be so terrible and so wonderful at the same time...?"

He gripped the edge of the sink, biting back the strange feeling in his chest, this alien thing which was now swelling. Not love. This was sorrow. Something he knew very well. "I don't know. I shouldn't love you. You're one of them."

'Cos finger by finger we're losing grasp and
I'm questioning the reasons why nothing beautiful does last...

12. Dashboard Confessional - Stolen
"Can we pretend, for a little while, that this day isn't going to end?"
also The Waltz

We watch the season pull up its own stakes
And catch the last weekend of the last week
Before the gold and the glimmer have been replaced,
Another sun soaked season fades away

You have stolen my heart


And from the ballroom floor we are in celebration
One good stretch before our hibernation
Our dreams assured and we all, will sleep well

You have stolen
You have stolen my heart

13. Keith Urban - Once in a Lifetime
The Paopu Fruit. "I'll find you. I promise. I'll always be with you. Don't forget."(Song's View)

I can see it in your eyes and feel it in your touch
I know that you're scared but you've never been this loved
It's a long shot, baby, I know it's true,
But if anyone can make it, I'm betting on me and you
Just keep on moving in to me
I know you're going to see
The best is yet to come

Don’t fear it now; we're going all the way
Where the sun is shining on a brand new day
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I’m never giving up, 'cause I know we got a once in a lifetime love

14. Matchbook Romance - "Promise"
The Paopu Fruit. "I'll find you. I promise. I'll always be with you. Don't forget." (Xemnas's View)

What would you say if I asked you not to go
To forget everyone, forget everything and start over with me
Would you take my hand and never let me go
Promise me you'll never let me go

And now the stars aren't out tonight,
But neither are we to look up at them
Why does hello feel like goodbye?
These memories can't replace,
These wishes I wished and dreams I chased
Take this broken heart and make it right

I feel like I've lost everything when you're gone
Left remembering what it's like to have you here with me
I thought you should know,
You're not making this easy

I never thought I'd be the one to say
Please don't, please don't leave me

15. Skillet - Falling Inside the Black
"I want to DREAM," he shouted, before relaxing again, as the light grew still brighter, a lattice-pattern spreading across his chest. "But I also want to rest."
"But also," he said with a last shuddering breath, as he looked into her eyes. "I don't want to leave you."

You were my source of strength
I've traded everything
That I love for this one thing
(Stranded in the offering)

Don't leave me here like this
Can't hear me scream from the abyss
And now I wish for you my desire

Don't leave me alone
Cause I barely see at all
Don't leave me alone, I'm

Falling in the black
Slipping through the cracks
Falling to the depths can I ever go back
Dreaming of the way it used to be
Can you hear me
Falling in the black
Slipping through the cracks
Falling to the depths can I ever go back
Falling inside the black
Falling inside falling inside the black
Black, black, black, black

16. Goo Goo Dolls - Here is Gone
It is over...
A heart lost to me

I am once again myself.

Such blessed silence.

You and I got something
But it's all and then it's nothing to me
And I got my defenses
When it comes to your intentions for me
And we wake up in the breakdown
Of the things we never thought we could be

I'm not the one who broke you
I'm not the one you should fear
What do you got to move you darling
I thought I lost you somewhere
But you were never really ever there at all

And I want to get free, talk to me
I can feel you falling
And I wanted to be all you need
Somehow here is gone

17. Anberlin - Paperthin Hymn
I remember most of it.

It is as if it happened to someone else

When your only friends are hotel rooms
Hands are distant lullabies
If I could turn around I would tonight

These roads never seemed so long
Since your paper heart stopped beating leaving me suddenly alone
Will daybreak ever come?

And a bonus track for what got this whole FST started:

Depeche Mode - "Walking in My Shoes"
Ryune and Xemnas's Bargain. "Try walking in my shoes."

Now I'm not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
If you try walking in my shoes
