Fanmix --- A Distant Dream Is Born (Arthur/Merlin)

A distant dream is born.
-- A Merlin/Arthur Fanmix

Time for a new mix :) I've been wanting to do a Merlin/Arthur fanmix for a very long time and now I finally sat down and actually made one.

This mix consists of songs that for some reason make me think of Arthur and Merlin and their two-sides-of-the-same-coin-kind-of-love. Some songs may make sense, others are more "oh, I think I read a fic like this once" songs, if you know what I mean ;) Nevertheless, I do hope you will like it and also think of our lovely boys together :)

This mix consists of 12 tracks (including bonus). You can either download the whole .zip or listen to it streaming on 8tracks.


A Distant Dream is Born

I know I spelled one of the artists name wrong. Sorry :( Too late to fix it now.

01 (Mumford & Sons) White Blank Page
You desired my attention but denied my affections…
Oh tell me now, where was my fault
in loving you with my whole heart?
Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life.

02 (José González) Killing For Love
You've got a heart on fire
It's bursting with desires
You've got a heart filled with passion
Will you let it burn for hate or compassion?
What's the point if you hate, die and kill for love?

03 (The Perishers) Come Out of the Shade
Was it love? I think it was but I'm far from sure
I've never felt that way before. Was it love?
Just friends. Am I a fool to be asking for,
a fool to wish that we could be more than friends?
Take a step and come out of the shade
I can tell you're no longer afraid
I'm helpless without your warming smile.

04 (Hurts) Silver Lining
The rain is going to follow you wherever you go.
The clouds go black and the thunder rolls and I see lightning
When the world surrounds you, I'll make it go away
Paint the sky with silver lining.
I will try to save you, cover up the grey with silver lining.

05 (Gotye) Hearts A Mess
Pick apart the pieces of your heart
and let me peer inside,
let me in where only your thoughts have been
let me occupy your mind as you do mine
you have lost too much love to fear, doubt and distrust.

06 (The National) Exile Vilify
It takes your mind again.
Well, you lived so much.
Have you given up?
Does it feel like a trial?
Does it trouble your mind the way you trouble mine?

07 (The Fray) Be The One
You just whisper what you said, one last time.
I could have sworn I heard you say, that you are mine.
Faded flowers in your hand, the best that I could do
It's the only way I've had of reaching you...
be the one and only, wait for me.

08 (The Swell Season) Back Broke
Back broke and happy
Because you're near, nearer to me.
I came on your command.
Don't give me false hope.
I'm back by big demand.
Don't give me false hope.
Back broke and smiling.
Because it's clear, you still want me.

09 (Matt Wertz) I Will Not Take My Love Away
I will not take my love away
When praises cease and seasons change
While the world turns the other way
I will not take my love away

10 (Tyrone Wells) Enough
All the drifting, wounded hearts, wish for love on distant stars
I was lost so many years, now I'm found because you are here
So just look at me again because now you're my everything
I could never ask for more so it's enough.
If all I heard was your promise and all you felt was my touch
If all we had was each other, we'd have enough

11 (Seabears) Hands Remember
Do you remember what things looked like when we were young?
The voice of an old friend or the notes to your first song
It's been a while now since you asked me to be,
your cat, your dog, your owl or your bumblebee...
I think I must have known you in another life
I think our rocking chairs used to rock together all night

I added this song at first for the general imagery and scenes that it gives when you listen to it. However, when I tried to translate it with Google Translate (from Icelandic to English), I found that the text fit very well and hence, the title of this mix :D :D The lyrics below have been translated using Google and I'm so sorry if there are any mistakes.

12 (Sigur Rós) Ágætis Byrjun (Good Beginning)
Bright hope come true
as we walk downtown
smiling and laughing happily
friendship and exhaustion collide
we celebrate the day
a two year wait
a distant dream is born...
