97 → The Fountain FST

This I honestly have no idea what happened, haha. When I checked singustosleep's prompt for this month - at the movies, with black and white for the art prompt - this was the first movie I thought of. I'm not sure why, but it wouldn't leave my brain, so I stuck with it.

The Fountain is a bit of a weird movie. Parts are about a conquistador and his queen - sent across the ocean to find immortality and free his queen from the hold of the church. Others a modern romance - the woman slowly dying, and the man trying to do everything he can to save her. And the last parts are of a man, seemingly travelling alone through space - a dying tree his only company as he hallucinates about the dead woman he still loves. They all intermingle and form a single story - which can be interpreted a number of ways. But at the core of it, it's a love story, told in three different times.

Anyway, the movie itself has an amazing and very haunting score to it, and I wanted to do something a little different from the score - so, I purposely picked songs with lyrics, instead of instrumentals. This is nowhere near as beautiful as the soundtrack and the movie itself, but I tried to at least capture the different parts of the movie, as strange as the timeline within it is. And, I hope that even if you haven't seen the movie, you'll enjoy the mix.


I WILL FOLLOW YOU INTO THE DARK ❣ THE FOUNTAIN FST



i will follow you into the dark
( the fountain fst )


the rescues ❦ my heart with you

Sailed a thousand ships in search of you,
traveled to distant lands
I dove for sunken gold,
I took what I could hold, but you're
still the greatest treasure I've held in my hands
My love, the reason I survive,
trust we'll be together soon
Should our fire turn to dark,
take my heart with you


muse ❦ exogenesis: symphony part 1 (overture)

I can’t forgive you,
And I can’t forget
Who are we?
Where are we?
When are we?
Why are we in here?


the decemberists ❦ the crane wife 3

And under the boughs unbowed
All clothed in a snowy shroud
She had no heart so hardened
All under the boughs unbowed
Each feather it fell from skin
'Til threadbare while she grew thin
How were my eyes so blinded?
Each feather it fell from skin
And I will hang my head low


arcade fire ❦ my body is a cage

I'm living in an age
Whose name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow
My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key


loreena mckennitt ❦ full circle

Stars were falling deep in the darkness
as prayers rose softly, petals at dawn
And as I listened, your voice seemed so clear
so calmly you were calling your god
Somewhere the sun rose, o'er dunes in the desert
such was the stillness, I ne'er felt before
Was this the question, pulling, pulling, pulling you
in your heart, in your soul, did you find rest there?


the postal service ❦ natural anthem

I'll write you a song
And I hope that you won't mind
Because all the names and places
I have taken from real life
So please don't get upset
At this portrait that I paint
It may be a little biased
But at least I spelled your name right


bloc party ❦ signs

The last time we slept together
There was something that was not there
You never wanted to alarm me
But I'm the one that's drowning now
I could sleep forever these days
Because in my dreams I see you again
But this time fleshed out, fuller faced
In your confirmation dress
It was so like you to visit me
To let me know you were ok
It was so like you to visit me
You always worried about someone else


devotchka ❦ dearly departed

Sweetheart
How I miss your heart
Beating next to mine
The right words
Were always hard to find
When all our time was fine
When darling you were mine, all mine


tom mcrae ❦ still love you

When I walk through the bone yard with you
I think I'm walking hand in hand with my own ghost
I've been many things, played a fool to catch a king
and I've even been the man behind the walls who hears your screams
But I still love you,
Yeah, I still love you


radiohead ❦ pyramid song

All my lovers were there with me
All my past and future
And we all went to heaven in a little row boat
There was nothing to fear
Nothing to doubt


coldplay ❦ yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah, your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
And you know for you
I'd bleed myself dry for you
I'd bleed myself dry
It's true, look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you


death cab for cutie ❦ i will follow you into the dark

You and me
Have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes
Are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
But it's nothing to cry about
Because we'll hold each other soon
In the blackest of rooms
