Fandom: The Hunger Games
Title: After The Bombs
Notes: Mockingjay spoilers, If you squint.
01— dead leaves and the dirty ground (the white stripes)
Soft hair and a velvet tongue
I want to give you what you give to me
and every breath that is in your lungs
is a tiny little gift to me.
02— summer skin (death cab for cutie)
I knew your heart I couldn't win
Because the season's change was a conduit
And we'd left our love in our summer skin
03— kiss with a fist (florence + the machine)
My black eye casts no shadow
your red eye sees no pain
your slaps don't stick
your kicks don't hit
so we remain the same.
04— fell in love with a girl (the white stripes)
Fell in love with a girl
I fell in love once and almost completely
she's in love with the world
but sometimes these feelings can be so misleading
she turns and said "are you alright?"
I said "I must be fine cause my heart's still beating
come and kiss me by the riverside, yeah."
05— bird stealing bread (iron & wine)
How I've missed you lately
And the way we would speak
And all that we wouldn't say.
06— night terrors (laura marling)
I woke up and he was screaming
I'd left him dreaming, I roll over and shake him
slightly, and whisper, 'If they want you, then they're
gonna have to fight me."
07— the cave (mumford and sons)
But I will hold on hope
And I won't let you choke
On the noose around your neck,
And I'll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I'll know my name as it's called again
08— apologies (grace potter and the nocturnals)
He said it's crazy
How love stays with me
You know it hurts me
Cause I don't wanna fight this war
It's amazing to see me reading through this scene
Of love and fear and apologies.
09— after the bombs (the decemberists)
And after the rockets come
and the glimmer of fire
pretends an early dawn
we pinch at our skin
while we wonder how we escaped harm.
we forget all our trials
all there in our baby's arms
