Down Came The Rain

Blurgh. This was going to be for waywardmixes, but I missed the deadline. Blurgh, dumb, energy-sapping job. (Also blurgh, dumb short-term memory issues.)

Title: Down Came The Rain
Trope: Tear Jerker
Fandom: Generally applicable
Warnings: Swearing in some tracks; drug references; definitely not happy.

2016 hasn't been a good year so far, for numerous reasons. So I decided to make a mix that reflects this. The base image was made with Easy Tiger's Fused app on an iPhone 5, then edited with GIMP.

Something I Can Never Have | Nine Inch Nails

In this place it seems like such a shame.
Though it all looks different now,
I know it's still the same
Everywhere I look you're all I see.
Just a fading fucking reminder of who I used to be.

Hurt | Johnny Cash

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair.
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear.
You are someone else.
I am still right here.

What have I become?
My sweetest friend.
Everyone I know goes away
In the end.
And you could have it all,
My empire of dirt,
I will let you down,
I will make you hurt.

Wild Horses | The Sundays

I know I've dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom, but I don't have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let's do some living after we die

Moonlight Sonata | Ludwig von Beethoven

How Soon Is Now | The Smiths

When you say it's gonna happen now
Well, when exactly do you mean?
See, I've already waited too long
And all my hope is gone.

You Found Me | The Fray

Where were you
When everything was falling apart?
All my days
Spent by the telephone
That never rang
And all I needed was a call
That never came
From the corner of First and Amistad

Hallelujah | Rufus Wainwright

There was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me, do ya?
But remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

I'll Be | Edwin McCain

I'll be your cryin' shoulder
I'll be love suicide
I'll be better when I'm older
I'll be the greatest fan of your life

Life on Mars? | David Bowie

But the film is a saddening bore
For she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man!
Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

So Like a Rose | Garbage

Sleeping with ghosts
It's such a lonely experience
The stars are out tonight
Only they can hear you breathing

You're so like a rose.
You're so like a rose.
You're so like a rose,
I wish you could stay here.

I'm sorry this year is being such a complete and utter washout. Here's to a spring renewal and so good news for a change, yes?

Hear, hear. It honestly can't get any worse, at this point.
