Playlist is meant to encapsulate AOS Jim Kirk's vulnerable/hurt side.

Some specific lyrics that I felt really fit:

Your Protector - "Keep your secrets with you / Safe from the outside / You walk along the stream / Your head caught in a waking dream / Your protector's coming home, coming home / As you lay to die beside me, baby / On the morning that you came / Would you wait for me? / The other one / Would wait for me [...] You run with the devil / You run with the devil / Tell your brother to be good [...] Tell your mother not to wait / Tell your father I was good"

If I Stare at the Clock Long Enough, Will I Have the Time to Tell You Everything? - "It used to be about us both / But now you're gone / My love can be a dangerous drug / Don't get attached / Will you help me find my way back home? / [If I stare at the clock long enough, will I have the time to tell you everything? Time moves so fast in every direction. As soon as I turn over on my side, pull the blankets up over my shoulders... the sun's creeping through the blinds. Do you think if I stay long enough I can make you understand that I just need one kiss? But... I'll take more if you have some to spare.]"

Fourth of July - "The evil it spread like a fever ahead / It was night when you died, my firefly / What could I have said to raise you from the dead? [...] We're all gonna die" / Sitting at the bed with the halo at your head / Was it all a disguise, like Junior High / Where everything was fiction, future, and prediction / Now, where am I? My fading supply / "Did you get enough love, my little dove / Why do you cry? / And I'm sorry I left, but it was for the best / Though it never felt right / My little Versailles" / The hospital asked should the body be cast / Before I say goodbye, my star in the sky / Such a funny thought to wrap you up in cloth / Do you find it all right, my dragonfly? / Shall we look at the moon, my little loon / Why do you cry? / Make the most of your life, while it is rife / While it is light / Well you do enough talk / My little hawk, why do you cry? [...] We're all gonna die"

Bowery - "Trying to forget / You can't tell if the ceiling's rising / Or if the floor's falling out / I remember sunrise without sleep / Godlike and cowering / Taller stacks of stones / Is all we'll have to show / Can't tell if the ceiling's rising / Or if the floor's falling out / At the time I wasn't with you / By that time I didn't care / At the time I wasn't with you / By that time I didn't care / The fall is so much faster / Than you and I could ever climb"

The Blue - "Aimlessly so blue / Midnight-moon shines for you / Still, marooned / Silence drifting through / Nowhere to choose / Just blue... / Ceaselessly / Star-crossed you and me / Save our souls / We'll be forever blue / Waves roll / Lift us in blue / Drift us / Seep right through / And color us blue"

The World at Large - "If the world's at large, why should I remain? / Walked away to another planet / Gonna find another place, maybe one I can stand / I move on to another day / To a whole new town with a whole new way / Went to the porch to have a thought / Got to the door and, again, I couldn't stop / You don't know where and you don't know when / But you still got your words and you got your friends / Walk along to another day / Work a little harder, work another way [...] The days get shorter and the nights get cold / I like the autumn but this place is getting old / I pack up my belongings and I head for the coast / It might not be a lot but I feel like I'm making the most / The days get longer and the nights smell green / I guess it's not surprising but it's spring and I should leave / I like songs about drifters, books about the same / They both seem to make me feel a little less insane / Walked on off to another spot / I still haven't gotten anywhere that I want / Did I want love? Did I need to know? / Why does it always feel like I'm caught in an undertow? / The moths beat themselves to death against the lights / Adding their breeze to the summer nights / Outside water like air was gray / I didn't know what I had that day / Walk a little farther to another plan / You said that you did, but you didn't understand / I know that starting over's not what life's about / But my thoughts were so loud I couldn't hear my mouth / My thoughts were so loud, I couldn't hear my mouth / My thoughts were so loud"

Space Oddity - "Take your protein pills and put your helmet on [...] Check ignition and may God's love be with you (two, one, liftoff) / This is Ground Control to Major Tom / You've really made the grade / And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear / Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare / "This is Major Tom to Ground Control / I'm stepping through the door / And I'm floating in a most peculiar way / And the stars look very different today / For here / Am I sitting in a tin can / Far above the world / Planet Earth is blue / And there's nothing I can do / Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles / I'm feeling very still / And I think my spaceship knows which way to go""

Now That I'm Older - "It's different now I think / I wasn't older yet / I wasn't wise, I guess / Somewhere I lost whatever else I had [...] I'm not such older than I was / I'm feeling so much righter now / And then I woke myself, confused [...] I wanted so much to be at rest / Now that I'm older / So be it so of love"

Motion Picture Soundtrack - "Red wine and sleeping pills / Help me get back to your arms / Cheap sex and sad films / Help me get where I belong / I think you're crazy, maybe / I think you're crazy, maybe / Stop sending letters / Letters always get burned / It's not like the movies / They fed us on little white lies / I think you're crazy, maybe / I think you're crazy, maybe / I will see you in the next life"


While the lyrics definitely play an important role in choosing these songs, I don't hold the words above the actual sound of each song and what those sounds convey to me (in regards to Jim Kirk's character). ...less
