JANAS! OMG. I KNOW that is hackneyed, but your vids are so gorgeous I WISH I had a DVD of them to play anytime anywhere. Beautiful, creative story telling and honoring all of the elements of poetry and dance. I just love these. Thanks for making such a tender, personally unique offering that is so intensely moving, I think these would be honored by Joss in his agreement of using "material parts" to nothing less than fine art.

HUGS!

I've been listening to a lot of Ian Brown lately (for a couple of moons Wink ) and this one song reminds me of Buffy and Angel.

Many moons have passed
since our paths last crossed
Did you maybe lose your way?
'cause time is my everything

Time is my everything
For you I'd do anything
Under the sun

And child, don't you fear anything
For all of the wicked men,
shall have to stand in line
I know you're gonna see it in the fullness of time

I know you're gonna see it in the fullness of time

So many moons have passed
since our paths last crossed
You're gonna have to find a way,
time is my everything

Time is my everything
For you I'd do anything
Under the sun

Child, don't you fear anything
For even the greatest men,
shall have to stand in line
I know you're gonna see it in the fullness of time

Ain't the devil happy
when two lovers break a bond they made?
Happy ever after when two lovers come as one again

I know you're gonna see it in the fullness of time

It has "moon" and "sun" (and the two of them are the moon and the sun), it has "wicked men" and "a devil" (not naming names, but, Joss, I'm looking at you!), "bond" that gets broken then renewed.
"Happy ever after when two lovers come as one again" is for when Joss finally gives them what they deserve - an ending worthy of their comittment.
And it has "time" - time *is* their everything (she doesn't have it a lot, he has it more than he'd like). The "fullness of time" is heaven, the only place where our star-crossed couple could twart their star-crossness.

Of course, this works best if I imagine the canon frozen in time after the shows, which I prefer doing anyway so that the happy ending remains in my own hands and imagination. (I'm still pretending I haven't read the comics, as you can clearly see...)

ETA: Ian Brown has many other songs that remind me of B/A too. I'll mention some: Destiny or Circumstance; Forever and a Day; Solarized; Home is Where the Heart Is; Shadow of a Saint, etc...

Not trying to steal thunder from Edward and Bella (wait a minute...they stole it from Buffy and Angel!) But anyways, the song from Breaking Dawn is pretty much Bangel's story. Sincere, poetic, touching.


TURNING PAGE by Sleeping at Last

I’ve waited a hundred years.
But I’d wait a million more for you.
Nothing prepared me for
What the privilege of being yours would do.

If I had only felt the warmth within your touch,
If I had only seen how you smile when you blush,
Or how you curl your lip when you concentrate enough,
I would have known what I was living for all along.
What I’ve been living for.

Your love is my turning page,
Where only the sweetest words remain.
Every kiss is a cursive line,
Every touch is a redefining phrase.

I surrender who I’ve been for who you are,
For nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart.
If I had only felt how it feels to be yours,
Well, I would have known what I’ve been living for all along.
What I’ve been living for.

Though we’re tethered to the story we must tell,
When I saw you, well, I knew we’d tell it well.
With a whisper, we will tame the vicious seas.
Like a feather bringing kingdoms to their knees.

Bruce Springsteen - Should I Fall Behind (Wait for Me). This is just perfection, pure B/A perfection.



We said we'd walk together baby come what may
That come the twilight should we lose our way
If as we're walkin a hand should slip free
I'll wait for you
And should I fall behind
Wait for me

We swore we'd travel darlin' side by side
We'd help each other stay in stride
But each lover's steps fall so differently
But I'll wait for you
And if I should fall behind
Wait for me

Now everyone dreams of a love lasting and true
But you and I know what this world can do
So let's make our steps clear that the other may see
And I'll wait for you
If I should fall behind
Wait for me

Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
There 'neath the oak's bough soon we will be wed
Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
I'll wait for you
And should I fall behind
Wait for me
Darlin' I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind
Wait for me

Kean, that's beautiful.
angelsbuffy4ever, I love that one. I haven't listened to the BD soundtrack but I enjoyed that song (I looked it up on YT)
MaryZg what's the name of the song? ETA: Oh, I found it. "Time Is My Everything". Never heard of Ian Brown before so I listened to a few of his songs. Great lyricism but not sure about his vocalization. He sounds the same on every song. The lyrics are beautiful though. I can't really see B/A in this one just because the song has such strong Spanish flavor.

Was listening to this "oldie" (1993 ha!) and it struck me that this fits perfectly from the end of Pangs through I Will Remember You. Would love to see a vid set to it. Any takers? Smile

Again by Janet Jackson

I heard from a friend today
And she said you were in town
Suddenly the memories came back to me in my
Mind

[CHORUS]
How can I be strong I've asked myself
Time and time I've said
That I'll never fall in love with you again

A wounded heart you gave
My soul you took away
Good intentions you had many
I know you did

I come from a place that hurts
And God knows how I've cried
And I never want to return
never fall again

Making love to you
Oh it felt so good and
Oh so right

[CHORUS]
So here we are alone again'
Didn't think it'd come to this
And to know it all began
With just a little kiss

I've come too close to happiness
To have it swept away
Don't think I can take the pain
No never fall again

Kinda late in the game and my heart is in
Your hands
Don't you stand there and then
Tell me you love
Me then leave again
Cause I'm falling in love with
You again

Hold me
Hold me
Don't ever let me go
Say it just one time
Say you love me
God knows I do
Love you
Again

I have heard this song a couple times lately and think it is so beautiful. I finally found out who sang it and looked it up. Every time I hear it I think of Buffy/Angel. I highly recommend looking it up on YouTube if you haven't heard this one yet:)
I Won't Give Up"
Jason Mraz

Hmmmm ... Hmmmm ... Hmmmm ... Hmmm ...

When I look into your eyes It's like watching the night sky Or a beautiful sunrise There's so much they hold And just like them old stars I see that you've come so far To be right where you are How old is your soul?

I won't give up on us Even if the skies get rough I'm giving you all my love I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space To do some navigating I'll be here patiently waiting To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn Some even fall to the earth We've got a lot to learn God knows we're worth it No, I won't give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not And who I am

I won't give up on us Even if the skies get rough I'm giving you all my love I'm still looking up Still looking up.

I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up) God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved) We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved) God knows we're worth it (and we're worth it)

I won't give up on us Even if the skies get rough I'm giving you all my love I'm still looking up

Completely by accident, I ran across a song on youtube that gave me very strong Bangel feels. It was just so perfect, fits Angel's point of view well. It matches what's going on in the comics right now with Buffy and Angel. I guess you can say it's partially anti, because it does touch on Buffy's anger/sadness over what happened at the end of S8. But it's perfect for Angel and how guilty he feels hurting her again by killing Giles and his Twilight phase.

One Last Chance --- Daughtry

Tell me what you need
And I will find a way to stop the bleeding
No, don't add to my mistakes
Tell me your not leaving,
Then I'll tell you everything you,
need to know

[CHORUS]
Don't throw it all away,
Don't say my words are just too late,
I don't wanna be left behind I've
been so blind
To all that have I broken,
Can we put this back together?

No more empty promises,
they don't exist,
Just me out in the open
I know this will take time,
Can you give me one last chance to make it right?
[CHORUS]

You say the story's ending,
But I think it's time we stopped pretending
No, I can't let you turn the page
Does your heart remember,
When we used to say forever
Don't let go

[CHORUS]

I know this will take time
Can we put the past behind us?
Tonight I'm gonna fight for you,
Just gimme one last chance to make it right
Last chance to make right

[CHORUS]

"The Only Exception" By Paramore

When I was younger I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind.
He broke his own heart and I watched
As he tried to reassemble it.

And my momma swore
That she would never let herself forget.
And that was the day that I promised
I'd never sing of love if it does not exist.

But darling,
You are the only exception.
You are the only exception.
You are the only exception.
You are the only exception.

Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul
That love never lasts.
And we've got to find other ways to make it alone.
Or keep a straight face.

And I've always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable distance.
And up until now I have sworn to myself
That I'm content with loneliness.

Because none of it was ever worth the risk.

Well you are the only exception.
You are the only exception.
You are the only exception.
You are the only exception.

I've got a tight grip on reality,
But I can't let go of what's in front of me here.
I know you're leaving in the morning when you wake up.
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream.
Oh-oh-oh-ohhh.

You are the only exception. [4x]

You are the only exception. [4x]

And I'm on my way to believing.
Oh, and I'm on my way to believing.

"Gravity" by Sara Bareilles. I swear this song could be their theme song.

Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do I 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 rain.


Set me free, leave me be. I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I'm supposed to be.
But you're on to me and all over me.


You loved me 'cause I'm fragile.
When I thought that I was strong.
But you touch me for a little while and all my fragile strength is gone.


Set me free, leave me be. I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I'm supposed to be.
But you're on to me and all over me.


I live here on my knees as I try to make you see that you're everything I think I need here on the ground.
You're neither friend nor foe though I can't seem to let you go.
The one thing that I still know is that you're keeping me down.
You're keeping me down, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You're on to me, on to me, and all over

I guess your belief this is the B/A theme song is why I just can't quite cuddle with you.

This song is appalling. It's every reason why "this" Buffy would hate herself. This is the worst in ANY person and has ZERO to do with love. It has to do with obsession and possession.

She is simply too weak to "get over "someone . This lover reduces her to feeling not only her passions, but her very love and in full truth, SHE should feel pathetic, weak, expectant to receive only pain for feeling love and the shape of the love she can expect in return--which has NEVER HAPPENED, not to mention, literally begging from her knees that Angel is the person sufficient to KEEP this POWER over her in THIS condition and that her own love for him does not actually raise her heart to that breathless joy, that warmth to be wholly seen and fully embraced for all of herself, tnot to mention, to also recognize she has good reason to be proud of her beloved, too, in his own fulfillment for inspiration, comfort, happiness--despite the reality of the curse. THEY both stand better and taller because each has actually shown what love really looks like--and it isn't groveling for anything to give her freedom from her own ideals.

Sorry, for the sucky opinion. The story on their faces in seeing each other tells me you haven't seen what they feel at all. You are caught up in the fraught of plot.

HUGS!

For all of you (who actually have hurt me—and thanks, it was good to discover, “what I’m made of” more clearly), and for those who actually remember Buffy/Angel isn’t about being prepared for them to see and screw “other persons” for the sake of some plotnik use, but do recall a story that began on a promise faithfully given, one to the other, for the other, I believe was made and will remain true, “Always” because “forever is the whole point.” I don’t offer the great, time tested grand music, surviving the ages, but offer this little “common place” diddy to add to your own (dusty?) list when your own heart was wide and wondrous and “knew what to see.”



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKf-Vmba3zk

THE ONLY PROMISE THAT REMAINS

Justin Timberlake, Matt Morris
REBA MCENTIRE …DUETS

When the ground beneath you starts shaking,shaking
And you forget the place we came from, came from
When you’re lost and looking for a way home
Your way home to me, I'll come out and find you

When the world around you starts moving, moving
And you should wonder if I still love you, love you
If you feel a darkness coming, rising inside
I'll make a light to guide you back home

And after all the sky has fallen down
And after all the water is washed away
My love's the only promise that remains

When your doubts have got you thinking, thinking
And nothings ever really sacred, sacred
And you’re afraid you might believe it
Believe in me and I'll give you a reason

Cause the world around us keeps on moving, moving
And there’s no doubt that I still love you, love you
So when you feel the darkness coming, rising inside
I'll make a light to guide you back home

And after all the sky has fallen down
And after all the water is washed away
My love's the only promise that remains
(My love's the only promise that remains)

And after all the sky has fallen down
(After all the sky has fallen down)
And after all the water is washed away
(After all the water is washed away)
My love’s the only promise that remains, remains


If life offers no wonder, no beauty, no joy, no celebration, and the human heart has no standing in life nor expression in art that surprises us all in the ages; and we are only to accept the one absolute of fate with no faith and no promise, and that makes me immature, it is “old enough” for life to continue in a world I’d rather live in than the mature crowd of the bored, cynical, and (understandably) tired to “know the evitable.”

Gone in good faith
Hugs!

Thank you, Sybil.

I hadn't heard the song before, and I love it. Thank you for the link, and, this line, I think, is so apt for Buffy and Angel.

Absolutely! Forever.

Came across this song on YouTube and thought it'd make a great B/A song.

I Don't Wanna Live Forever
Taylor Swift, Zayn Malik

Been sitting eyes wide open behind these four walls, hoping you'd call
It's just a cruel existence like there's no point hoping at all
Baby, baby, I feel crazy, up all night, all night and every day
Give me something, oh, but you say nothing
What is happening to me?
I don't wanna live forever, 'cause I know I'll be living in vain
And I don't wanna fit wherever
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I'm sitting eyes wide open and I got one thing stuck in my mind
Wondering if I dodged a bullet or just lost the love of my life, oh
Baby, baby, I feel crazy
Up all night, all night and every day
I gave you something, but you gave me nothing
What is happening to me?
I don't wanna live forever, 'cause I know I'll be living in vain
And I don't wanna fit (fit, babe) wherever (wherever)
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I've been looking sad in all the nicest places
Baby, baby, I feel crazy
I see you around in all these empty faces
Up all night, all night and every day
I've been looking sad in all the nicest places
Give me something, oh, but you say nothing
Now I'm in a cab, I tell 'em where your place is
What is happening to me?
I don't wanna live forever, 'cause I know I'll be living in vain
And I don't wanna fit wherever
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
Until you come back home
