Fanmix : Never Let Me Go : walk away, walk away  

Title: walk away, walk away
Fandom: Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
Subject: General
Notes: Omigosh, I am so excited for the movie. Haven't seen it yet (up until a couple of days ago, it wasn't even playing anywhere in my state >:P), but it looks really good, and I've heard good things. Anyway, decided to put together some songs that reminded me of the book. It's a vague, moody/concepty type of mix, so no spoilers, really.

walk away walk away
{ a NEVER LET ME GO mix }


SOUNDS FAMILIAR the weakerthans
        we emerged from youth
all wide-eyed like the rest,
        shedding skin
faster than skin can grow.

WE WERE NEVER YOUNG raised by swans
        we were young.
        we didn't heed those things.
        if birds were singing,
        we were loved.

WHITE HOUSES vanessa carlton
        it's alright, and it's nice not to be so alone,
        but i hold onto your secrets in white houses.
        love, or something, ignites in my veins
        and i pray it never fades away in white houses.

BE LIKE THAT 3 doors down
                 i would give anything
         just to live one day in those shoes.

        we're growing apart,
        but we pull it together.
        pull it together, together again.
        don't let me go.

        oh, simple thing,
        where have you gone?
        i'm getting old and
        i need something to rely on.

OLD FRIENDS / BOOKENDS simon & garfunkel
        a time it was, it was a time.
        a time of innocence.
        a time of confidence.

        if you walk away, i'll walk away.
        first tell me which road you will take.
        i don't wanna risk our paths crossin' some day,
        so you walk that way, i'll walk this way.

BEAUTIFUL LIFE charlotte martin
        maybe we'll meet up in denver,
talk about weather, talk of old times.
        i know every word that we said was
        what we both meant,
        well, we meant it at the time
