ONLY A SKELETON; an edward cullen mix  

ONLY A SKELETON; an edward cullen mix


Ok, so this mix took a hell of a lot longer than Jacob's, and was much harder to put together. Edward's a pretty complex and tortured character, and finding songs to fit him was more difficult than I thought it would be.
I see this whole mix as a reflection of Edward's opinion of himself - there's a lot of low self esteem and incredibly low self worth going on here, which I think fits in well with his whole "I am a monster plz do not love me kthx" despair. The first few songs refer to his "moonless night" period, when he was living with Carlisle and pretty much just existing for the sake of it. Wheras songs 5, 6 and 7 are about Bella's arrival in his life, and his struggle with wanting her to stay away from what he really is, while falling in love with her at the same time.
I absolutely love Snow Owl as an Edward/Bella song, it's so damn perfect - the lyrics are beautiful, and the imagery seems like something straight from the book. I like the comparison of Edward to an owl too, as he's the predator once again. Such a pretty song.
(Btw, absolutely anything and everything by The Mountain Goats is sheer liquid wonderment if you wanted to check 'em out. JUST SAYIN'.)
But yeah, onto the mix!

1. Waiting - City & Colour

A coma might feel better than this
Attempting to discover where to begin
You're weighed down, you're full of something
Of sickness and desertion
So say goodbye to love
And hold your head up high
There's no need to rush.

2. Liar - Mumford & Sons

I know that things are broken
And though there's too many words left unsaid
Like the coward I am, I hang my head
And who in this world could ask me to resist
Your hands cold as they find my neck
All this love that I've found I detest.

3. Sounds Familiar - The Weakerthans

Shedding skin faster than skin can grow,
And armed with hammers, feathers, blunt knives.
My voice will scratch to yell many more,
But before I spill the things I mean to hide away,
Or gouge my eyes with platitudes of sentiment,
I'll drown the urge for permanence and certainty.

4. Wild Tigers I Have Known - Emily Jane White

Silence is a power and a tool for you,
You keep your heart from your chest,
It'll be gone just like the rest
Holding flames, holding hands in hearts
And their bindings held tightly.
Lying in the shady grass,
Their teeth grinding,
Inside is foreign.

5. Oh My Stars - A Weather

Sometimes it's hard
thinking about how the plans we made
won't happen today or tonight,
I'm trying real hard
to not make you feel
like you've done something wrong
by leaving the chips open.

6. Snow Owl - The Mountain Goats

You came down from heaven to the branch outside my window,
Your feathers were the color of snow.
The dice were loaded against us ever seeing each other,
But one of us had nowhere else to go.
With your voice practicing notes from time's own beginning,
You took apart the alphabet letter by letter,
And here's where it all stops for good.

7. Goddamn Your Fingers - Choir of Young Believers

Love came and took you by surprise one sunny morning,
No one's seen you since.
Oh what's the cure for bad decisions
And the things that conclude with it?
I still pass your house, I see you now and then.
Winds keep on blowing, it's a storm
And oh, to be in the middle of it.
When are you coming back?
Are you coming back?
I hope you're coming back.

8. Fly - Ludovico Einaudi
