Fanmix: I Wanna See Us Together

I guess it was inevitable that I made myself a playlist for my latest OTP. The only twist here is that I decided to only use songs that I've added to my iTunes since the beginning of March, i.e. since I finally dove headfirst into this fandom. This resulted in the addition of several songs by New Zealand artists (because that's where I live at the moment), plus a somewhat angstier mix than it might otherwise have been, as not many people do angst quite as prettily as boys in eyeliner... *g*


1) G.I.N.A.S.F.S. - Fall Out Boy:
Trade Baby Blues, for Wide-Eyed Browns
I sleep with your old shirts
And walk through this house in your shoes
I know it's strange
It's a strange way of saying that I know I'm supposed to love you
I'm supposed to love you

2) Possession - Evans Blue (Sarah McLachlan cover):
Oh you speak to me in riddles and
You speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath
You words keep me alive

And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
And after I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

3) One Day - Opshop:
One day you'll understand how much you have me
One day you'll realise we have it easy
I can't offer you the future - I don't know it myself
All I can offer you is me
I'm all I can offer you right now

4) Get It Right - Jets Overhead:
Silent singers
Come to watch a show
Violence is simple
No one has to know

Soft sighs, lost eyes
Would you
Sees all, hears all
Want to

Just get it right
Get it right

5) The Special Two - Missy Higgins:
I step outside my mind's eye's for a minute.
And I look over me like a doctor looking for disease,
Or something that could ease the pain.
But nothing cures the hurt you, you bring on by yourself,
Just remembering, just remembering how we were...

When we would only need each other, we'd bleed together,
Our hands would not be taught to hold another's,
We were the special two.

6) Relativ - Wise Guys:
Du fragst mich relativ oft, was ich genau für dich empfinde
Ist doch relativ klar, dass ich mich da ein bisschen winde
Ich finde diese Frage echt gefährlich
Denn normalerweise bin ich ziemlich ehrlich

Ich hab dich relativ gern
Vielleicht sogar ein bisschen mehr

You ask me relatively often what I feel for you
It's relatively obvious that this makes me just a bit uncomfortable
I find this question really dangerous
Because usually I'm quite honest.

I like you relatively well
Maybe even a bit more.

7) Echo - The Hush Sound:
You are the brick
I am so unpredictable
led by the current away
Your solid stage is so necessary to save
all those who stray

You are the navigator who never could lead
we were lost in the silver sea
I was the ship who was too proud to ever sink.

8) I Love You, Imbecile - Pelle Carlberg:
I love the way you talk
I love the way you stalk
me with your mobile phone
I love the way you smile
The way you're juvenile
I love the way you moan

I can live with vanity and puns
and the morning temper runs
I can live with all your downsides
I can live with you

All I want, all I need
All I want is you
I can live with all the stupid things you do.

9) Everything We Had - The Academy Is...:
You saw for yourself, the way it played out
For you, I am blinded
For you, I am blinded, for you

I am no gentleman, I can be a prick
And I do regret more than I admit
You have been followed back to the same place
I sat with you drink for drink
Take the pain out of love and then love won't exist

10) Wise Man Say - Anika Moa:
Wise man say
If you love it, set it free
But holding onto you
Is the way it is for me

And there's no way
That I'm giving myself to you
When you wrap your arms around me
But you don't feel it too

11) I'll Run - The Cab:
Have a little faith in me
You're scared and alone
And I'll run
This is where we both break free
I'll bring you home

I can hear it in your voice, you care
Let me run my fingers through your hair
I'll keep you company at night
And baby I'm here to make this right

12) A Beautiful Mess - Jason Mraz:
Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you write
Kind of turn themselves into knives
And don't mind my nerve you can call it fiction
'Cause I like being submerged in your contradictions dear
'Cause here we are, here we are

13) You're My Only Home - The Magnetic Fields:
I will stay if you let me stay
and I'll go if you let go
but I won't go far away
because you're my only home

14) Good Man - Josh Ritter:
I fell in love with your sound
Oh I love to sing along with you
We got tunes we kicked around
We got a bucket that the tunes go through

Babe we both had dry spells
Hard times in bad lands
I'm a good man for ya

15) Gravity - Sara Bareilles:
Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do I'll still feel you here 'til the moment I'm gone.

You hold me without touch.
You keep me without chains.
I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your reign.

16) Singing In My Sleep - Semisonic:
Got your tape and it changed my mind
Heard your voice in between the lines
Come around from another time
Where nobody ever goes

All alone on the overpass
Wired and phoned to a heart of glass
Now I'm falling in love too fast
With you or the songs you chose

17) Run Run Run - Goldenhorse:
You call me and I run, run, run right to your heart
You come near and I run, run, run right to your heart

Like the days we used to have
Don't leave me now, I love, love you so

18) Come Home - One Republic:
And right now there's a war between the vanities
But all i see is you and me
The fight for you is all I've ever known
So come home

Everything i can't be
Is everything you should be
And that's why i need you here

19) Clumsy Heart - The Matches:
We, before there was we
she only she, me merely me
lonely our diaries

We were in two halves,
we didn't quite match
she ground down my corners,
kissed me for the foreigners

20) Wait For Me - Jamie Lidell:
We both know I won't be standing still
But to have your love is such a thrill
That's why I'm asking you to wait, wait for me

Without you by my side I just can't sleep
That's why I'm up all night counting sheep
Hoping and praying you'll wait for me

But I've been waiting, I've been waiting, I've been waiting, yeah
I've been waiting, I've been waiting, wanna know if you'll wait for me too

21) Don't Matter - Fall Out Boy (Akon cover):
We gonna fight
Fight for our right to love yeah
Nobody wanna see us together
But it don't matter no
'Cause I got you

"Yo, Patrick Stump, I wanna see us together, man!"

Apologies for the low-tech "cover art", my Photoshop and I aren't currently on speaking terms.
