[and this is Sherlock reflecting on a John who has married and settled down…]

judy collins
Isn't it rich?

Isn't it queer?

Losing my timing this late in my career?

But where are the clowns?

There ought to be clowns.

Well maybe next year....

caleb kane

And if you let me hear

The things you seem to want to say

Though I am late, I will wait to go

Until I know you're somewhere safe....

You're falling into it

An inescapable place

Or something intimate

Between the you that no one sees

Is there a way inside

You only hide from enemies?

'Cause I'll wait

I'm afraid you won't get rid of me so easily...

james blunt

A generation drenched in hate.

Says, he has been here.

And I see no bravery,

No bravery in your eyes anymore.

Only sadness.

will young

Sometimes you walk by the good ones

'Cause you're trying too hard,

Too hard to see them

And sometimes you don't find the right lines

'Cause you're trying too hard,

Too hard to hear them....


Cover my eyes

Cover my ears

Tell me these words are a lie

It cant be true

That I'm losing you

The sun cannot fall from the sky

Can you hear heaven cry

Tears of an angel?

glen hansard

So much has gone misunderstood

This mystery only leads to doubt

And I didn't understand

When you reached out to take my hand

And if you have something to say

You'd better say it now...

cat powers

When I lay me down

Will you still be around?

When they put me six feet underground

Will the big bad beautiful you be around?


Space child ages as he turns and faces the lie

Then after laughter was caught in his throat as he died

Fly on homeward...


I miss you so much boy

Will we be coming on again?

Don’t ever lose your ropes

This man is hanging by the ends.

I owe you so much time

Yes you might say it isn’t like that at all…

velvet revolver

It's been a long year

Since you've been gone

I've been alone here

I've grown old

I fall to pieces, I'm falling

Fell to pieces and I'm still falling...

the script

And if you're covering your face now

But you just can't hide the pain

Still setting two plates on the counter but eating without you

If the truth is you're a liar

Then just say that you're okay


I'll leave the door on the latch

If you ever come back, if you ever come back

There'll be a light in the hall and the key under the mat

If you ever come back

There'll be a smile on my face and the kettle on

And it will be just like you were never gone…


I hate to turn up out of the blue, uninvited

But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it

I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded

That for me, it isn't over.


Never mind, I'll find someone like you

I wish nothing but the best for you, too

Don't forget me, I begged, I remember you said

Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead.

♥ enjoy! ^_~ comments are  ♥

*squees loudly and unapologetically* lol
It feels like christmas all over again. First a sad, lovely fic and now a fantastic fanmix. I love that you've included Space Child, The Moon and especially Say It To Me Now. The way Glen Hasards voice all but breaks as he sings it... gets me every time. *leh sigh*
Catcakehole_cat on January 19th, 2012 11:23 pm (UTC)
GEN! HAI! *also squeeing, this is like a newton's cradle of squee*
I'm almost hating myself for creating this mix- I made it into a playlist in itunes and I've been walking around all day with me headphones in, unable to escape my melancholy funk. T_T'
