One Direction - OT5 - we're fated to pretend

Medium: Real People
Fandom: One Direction
Subject: OT5
Title: we're fated to pretend
Mixers Notes: So while I was making we touched the stars (generally schmoopy OT5), I came across a shitload of angsty songs that also felt perfect for these idiots. So here's that mix, because I like putting myself in PAIN for some reason. This mix sort of got out of control, but I think it's one of my favorite things that I've made, so I hope you enjoy it too.

This mix is set in the future, in a horrible world where 1D is bitterly broken up and the boys have fallen out of touch. But they're still in the media and still see each other occasionally. You just can't shut down that kind of love that they have, even when it's mixed with anger and bitterness.

regina spektor // small town moon
i must've left a thousand times
but every day begins the same
cause there's a small town in my mind
how can i leave without hurting everyone that made me?
how can i leave without hurting everyone that made me?

dave matthews // stay or leave
wake up naked drinking coffee
making plans to change the world
while the world is changing us
it was good good good love
you used to laugh under the covers
maybe not so often now

ellie goulding // salt skin
you're as bright as the sun and as calm as the wind
i don't know when you'll break but it's gonna be soon
if my will caves in, i'll be in the same boat as you

of monsters and men // love love love
and these fingertips, they'll never run through your skin
those bright blue eyes can only meet mine across a room
filled with people that are less important than you
because you love love love
when you know i can't love

matt nathanson // kiss quick
kiss quick, i've got a line out the door
who all think they can save me
one by one they lay the world at my feet
one by one they drive me crazy

nada surf // are you lightning?
i see you in my sheets, i see you in my sleep
i see you from my steps, you're walking up my street
but just look at the size of you

okkervil river // it ends with a fall
i know it's coming down
and see it shattering me
it doesn't matter to me
and i'm not sadder for seeing it come
i'm not going to run

neon trees // love and affection
i just don't understand
why my love isn't good enough
i just don't understand
why my love isn't good enough

mgmt // time to pretend
this is our decision to live fast and die young
we've got the vision, now let's have some fun
yeah it's overwhelming, but what else can we do?
get jobs in offices and wake up for the morning commute?
forget about our mothers and our friends
we're fated to pretend

damien rice // elephant
what's the point of this song?
or even singing?
you've already gone
why am i clinging?

the national // you were a kindness
there wasn't any way for anyone to settle in
you made a slow disaster out of me
there's a radiant darkness upon us
i don't want you to worry
i was careful but nothing is harmless

jenny owen youngs // fuck was i
love tears me up like a demon
opens the wounds and fills them with lead
and i'm having some trouble just breathing
if we weren't such good friends i think that i'd hate you
if we weren't such good friends i'd wish you were dead

stars // your ex-lover is dead
nothing but time and a face that you'll lose
i chose to feel it and you couldn't choose
i'll write you a postcard, i'll send you the news
from the house down the road from real love

the fray // vienna
maybe in five or ten
yours and mine will meet again
straighten this whole thing out
maybe then honesty need not be feared as a friend or an enemy
but this is the distance
and this is my game face

coldplay // the scientist
nobody said it was easy
it's such a shame for us to part
nobody said it was easy
no one ever said it would be this hard
oh take me back to the start

the weepies // world spins madly on
i let the day go by
i always say goodbye
i watch the stars from my window sill
the whole world is moving and i'm standing still

the cinematic orchestra // to build a home
cause i build a home
for you
for me
until it disappeared
from me
from you
and now, it's time to leave and turn to dust
