TVD - Neither Deep Nor Tragic










Notes: This is for upupa_epops' Elena Gilbert centric fic Help, I'm Alive (the title of which is also the first track on the mix because that's the way we roll). Without getting into spoilery territory, the premise of her fic is essentially that life sucks and then you die and then it keeps sucking, and thus I have made efforts to offer a suitable soundtrack. Go read, worship, and listen to the following if you so desire (follow the link to dl!).


[~*tracklisting*~]


01. Metric - Help I'm Alive (Styte Dubstep Remix)

If we're still alive
My regrets are few
If my life is mine
What shouldn't I do?


02. Band of Skulls - Blood

I want it to be over
Turn the boat around and bring that girl in
I stumble through the error
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, sick, sick

I know you're bleeding, baby
But you're not bleeding blood


03. Kim Ferron - Nothing But You

And I've got plenty of time
Time to figure it out
Time to think about you and me
Whatever that was all about
Got nothing to prove
Got nothing to say
No, I'm guessing I never thought you
were good for me anyway


04. Aimee Mann - This Is How It Goes

So I try to hold on
While you try to let go
You won't tell me it's gone
But baby, I'll know
Baby, I'll know


05. Angie Hart - Blue

High tide
Inside
The air is dew
And where were you?

While I
I died
And where were you?


06. Daniel Ahearn - I Will Let You Go

Put your hands in the water
watch them go under
Put your hand to the light
watch the light come through
And I will let you go

Put your time on the table
See who'll sit down with you
Give your love to the ones who offer you bruise
After bruise, after bruise
And I will let you go


07. Panda Su - Eric Is Dead

when i am older, i will change back to the way
i once was when we first set our eyes on it

nothing's left, no turning back, i've already told you that
count your knees and i'll count mine, we'll settle them in time


08. SaintSaviour - Woman Scorned

And time was we were synchronised
And I felt all those ties dissolve in the winter
Now I must begin again
To be frozen


09. Blonde Redhead - Here Sometimes

A little girl upon the fireplace
Only air flying emotionless
Ring the bells for she could keep flying
This is me, completely me

End of day, we watched the sun go down
I can see you're like a firework
You want to save me, people will save me
But this is you, completely you


10. The Cardigans - My Favourite Game

And this is not a case of lust, you see
it's not a matter of you versus me
It's fine the way you want me on your own
but in the end it's always me alone


11. Interpol - Rest My Chemistry

I haven't slept for two days
I've bathed in nothing but sweat
And I've made hallways
Scenes for things to regret
My friends they come
And the lines they go by


12. TV on the Radio - I Was A Lover

I'm locked in my bedroom, so send back the clowns
My clone wears a brown shirt, and I seduce him when there's no one around
Mano why mano, on a bed of nails
Bring it on like a storm, till I knock the wind out of his sails
And we don't make eye contact, when we have run-ins in town
Just a barely polite nod, and nervous stares towards the ground


13. Florence & The Machine - Breaking Down

All alone on the edge of sleep
My old familiar friend
Comes and lies down next to me
And I can see it coming from the edge of the room
Smiling in the streetlight even with my eyes shut tight
I still see it coming now


14. Aimee Mann - You Could Make A Killing

There is nothing that competes with habit
And I know it's neither deep nor tragic
It's simply that you have to have it

So you can make a killing
Oh you can make a killing

I wish I was both young and stupid
Then I too could have the fun that you did
Till it was time to pony up what you bid


15. Bon Iver - Blindsided

Taut line, down to the shoreline
The end of a blood line, the moon is a cold light

There's a pull to the flow
My feet melt the snow
For the irony, I'd rather know
'Cause blinded, I was blindsided


16. Declan Flynn - Ease My Pain

Out of time, I hear your voice
Break through the noise
And pain, my heart’s refrain

Why can’t I convince myself
That this is the right time
To contend


17. Ellie Goulding - Salt Skin

You're as sharp as a knife and you fit like a glove
That is no way to live, that is no way to love
Full of fear in your skin and the weakness in giving in
Stabbed in the back but you feel no pain
Push the heaviest doors that you can't open
Yeah, they tied me up and my body lies still, again


18. The Naked and Famous - Girls Like You

How would you cope if the world decided to
Make you suffer for all that you were?
How could you dance if no-one was watching
And you couldn't even care if they were?
What would you do if you couldn't even feel?
Not even pitiful pain
How would you deal with the indecisions
Eating away at the days?

Don't you know people write songs about girls like you?
About girls like you
