The Dreamer (Soundtrack)

by paigeaddams

Hello all! Here’s my soundtrack for The Dreamer – I hope you guys like it! 🙂

1) Grant-Lee Phillips – “Sarah” – Witchblade: The Music

Our tragedy is old as the night

Our fable done told a thousand-odd times

For fate is an unmerciful queen

Made a quest out of you and a soldier of me

I curse the stars that take you away

Take you away from my side

Condemned to burn my chariot wheels

Chasing the love of my life

Oh Sarah it’s the pageant we play

Forever and eternally fated

Oh Sarah I done followed too far

I can’t let you slip away

Our destiny is bound like a knot

Can’t be untied won’t be forgot

I feel the arrows ‘fore they arrive

Trained on this place in my heart

And I’m apt to stumble over the edge

Chasing my love in the dark

Oh Sarah it’s the pageant we play

Forever and eternally fated

Oh Sarah I done followed too far

I can’t let you slip away

Oh Sarah it’s the pageant we play

Forever and eternally fated

Oh Sarah I done followed too far

I can’t let you slip away

Well I can’t let you slip away

No I can’t let you slip away

I can’t let you slip away

Well I can’t let you slip away

I can’t let you

And I can’t let you slip away

And I can’t let you slip away

2) Queens Club – “Nightmarer” – Young Giant

There are few things you hope I change (but you’ll stay the same)

And I’ve been all wrong, a little bit little bit

And one thing that you do that’s sure to carry me through it

Is love me all the same, and I will always let you

I’d ride the nightmare for healthy conscience

Sleeping with mouth open wide

I want you to find me

I want you to find me

And all I do is hide, I hide from you

Can we sort this out, I’m ready

I’ve hidden pride to it be

And it’s racing racing and standing still

And it barely touches me anymore

I’d ride the nightmare for healthy conscience

Sleeping with mouth open wide

I want you to find me

I want you to find me

And all I do is hide, I hide from you

It’s end of day

I’m in the rough

I’m in the nude

I’m pausing to

I’d ride the nightmare for healthy conscience

Sleeping with mouth open wide

I want you to find me

I want you to find me

And all I do is hide, I hide from you

3) Florence & The Machine – “No Light, No Light” – Ceremonials

You are the hole in my head

You are the space in my bed

You are the silence in between what I thought

And what I said

You are the night time fear

You are the morning when it’s clear

When it’s over you’ll start

You’re my head

You’re my heart

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes

I never knew daylight could be so violent

A revelation in the light of day

You can’t choose what stays and what fades away

And I’ll do anything to make you stay

No light, no light

No light

Tell me what you want me to say

Through the crowd, I was crying out

And in your place there were a thousand other faces

I was disappearing in plain sight

Heaven help me, I need to make it right

You want a revelation

You want to get it right

Bit it’s a conversation

I just can’t have tonight

You want a revelation

Some kind of resolution

You want a revelation

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes

I never knew daylight could be so violent

A revelation in the light of day

You can’t choose what stays and what fades away

And I’d do anything to make you stay

No light, no light

No light

Tell me what you want me to say

Would you leave me

If I told you what I’ve done?

And would you need me

If I told you what I’ve become?

‘Cause it’s so easy

To sing it to a crowd

But it’s so hard, my love

To say it to you out loud

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes

I never knew daylight could be so violent

A revelation in the light of day

You can’t choose what stays and what fades away

And I’d do anything to make you stay

No light, no light

No light

Tell me what you want me to say

You want a revelation

You want to get it right

But, it’s a conversation

I just can’t have tonight

You want a revelation

Some kind of resolution

You want a revelation

You want a revelation

You want to get it right

But, it’s a conversation

I just can’t have tonight

You want a revelation

Some kind of resolution

Tell me what you want me to say

4) Thrice – “Words In The Water” – Major/Minor

Standing knee-deep in cold water, swiftly moving

Somehow I knew I lost something

Waiting waist-deep I saw a book there, in the river

Waiting for me to find it there

I tried to read it, neck deep, treading water

The tide pulled me out to sea

Then with water in my eyes

The words began to rise from their place

They were beautiful and dread

I reached for them and fed on each phrase

They were honey on my lips

Then a bitter twist in my side

I knew they’d lay me in my grave

“Is there no one who could save me?” I cried

Sinking down deep through cold water and heavy silence

Shadows stirring in the gloom

What things lay sleeping down deep in the darkness?

Woke then to find me in my tomb

Then with water in my eyes

The words began to rise from their place

They were beautiful and dread

I reached for them and fed on each phrase

They were honey on my lips

Then a bitter twist in my side

I knew they’d lay me in my grave

“Is there no one who could save me?” I cried

And when I lost all hope to look

Someone took that heavy book from my hands

All it’s weight they set aside

After they had satisfied it’s demands

I felt white and black reverse

And the lifting of a curse from my heart

Then like one receiving sight

I beheld a brilliant light in the dark

5) Kidney Thieves – “Serene Dream” – Zerospace

Serene dream

Soft easy winter

Watering the dry spots on the day

Water leaves of gray

Serene dream

Spend nowhere with me

Isn’t far to nowhere

Rise and feel the bomb of fountains land

Close your eyes in front of nowhere

Language of no words

Spend nowhere with me

Serene dream

Free of thirst and pain

Heavy turns to cake

Serene dream

Where the ethers speak

Tall day

It’s a tall, tall day

It’s a tall, tall, tall day

Spend nowhere

Spend nowhere

Spend nowhere

Spend nowhere

Spend nowhere

Spend nowhere

Spend nowhere with me

6) Thrice – “Call It In The Air” – Major/Minor

A coin tossed into the air will come down,

It will come down somewhere

Your life is a coin in the air

It will come down, it will come down somewhere

Every coin does ring

Every coin will fall

Stop your wavering

Now’s the time so call it out

A coin in the air, it will come down

It will come down somewhere

Every coin does ring

Every coin will fall

Stop your wavering

Now’s the time so call it in the air

You have to choose

And what you stand to lose you’ve been putting up all of your life

Call it in my hand

Only one way to see what the outcome will be

Call it out before we lose the light

No more stalling, no delay

You must call it out by light of day

Every coin does ring

Every coin will fall

Stop your wavering

Now’s the time so call it in the air

You have to choose

And what you stand to lose you’ve been putting up all of your life

Call it in my hand

Only one way to see what the outcome will be

Call it out before we lose the light

So heads or tails?

There’s nothing for it so put an end to your sidestepping

Is it heads or tails?

You can’t ignore it

You stand to win or lose everything

Heads or tails?

So put an end to your sidestepping

Heads or tails?

You stand to win or lose everything

7) Project 86 – “The Black Brigade” – Project 86 Picket Fence Cartel

Prepare in urgency to race

Casting off the weight that burdens me

I cannot dare to force the pace

Marathon for life the road I face

Committed

Determined

My gaze is set on finishing

I’m straining to extend the lead

As every evil chases me

One day, one hour, every step

I know

I know

I fix

My eyes

Ahead

Straining on to run without remorse

Casting off mistakes that came before

In my mind I see a hallowed door

Open arm embrace, I’m reaching for…

Committed

Determined

My gaze is set on finishing

I’m straining to extend the lead

As every evil chases me

One day, one hour, every step

I know

I know

I fix

My eyes

Ahead

Just like a breeze is passing me

My stammers, a distant memory

We cannot afford a glance to see

What’s gaining or what is history

Unyielding

Unflinching

My gaze is set on finishing

I’m straining to extend the lead

As every evil chases me

One day, one hour, every step

I know

I know

I fix

My eyes

Ahead

I’m straining to extend the lead

As every evil chases me

One day, one hour, every step

I know

I know

I fix

My eyes

Ahead

8) Paper Tongues – “Love Like You” – Paper Tongues

I’ll be the first to say,

“I do love you so”

Be the last to walk away

From what we know

You can’t invent a Jones like ours in this world

It only happens once upon a time for boys and girls

I’ll never find another love like you

Who wants to be in love the way I do

Better is a day standing by your side

Your heart is like a castle in my sky

I’ll never find another love like you

Who wants to really be my rainbow

I could almost die to imagine how

We survived to see this day

Only if I had the words to paint the moon

I would paint it on a star just for you

Then we’d get inside a boat made of clouds

And we’d never turn around we’d go all out

I’ll never find another love like you

Who wants to be in love the way I do

Better is a day standing by your side

Your heart is like a castle in my sky

I’ll never find another love like you

Who wants to really be my rainbow

I could almost die to imagine how

We survived to see this day

And mockingbirds they sing upon my tree

And the tower bells they ring and I believe

And I’m asking you to be my everything

I’ll never find another love like you

Who wants to be in love the way I do

Better is a day standing by your side

Your heart is like a castle in my sky

I’ll never find another love like you

Who wants to really be my rainbow

I could almost die to imagine how

We survived to see this day

I’ll never find another love like you

Who wants to really be my rainbow

I’ll never find another love like you

Who wants to be in love the way I do

  1. I’ll check these out tomorrow

    DJ-

  2. nice selection,what I have heard,, especially like Florence … havent listened to all yet but will return..and comment again..:)

    • Thank you Cobbies. 🙂 Florence & The Machine is one of my favorites too. I also really love “Sarah” by Grant-Lee Phillips. Lol, that one gets stuck in my head all the time. 🙂

  3. OK, the first and Florence . . . the rest are really not in the sphere of my particular taste in music (no particular groups, but rather individual songs/music). I’m by no means an expert at recognizing genre, but some of these pieces sound like what I imagine metal might sound like (or at least a semblance of that same anger in the music).

    It probably does not help that I seldom listen to words. The sound of the voice blends with the music, and if the intonations are complimentary, and if I listed many, many times, I might eventually become aware of the meaning of the words. That means that a piece of music might have incredible lyrics . . . and I won’t know until sometime years later.

    Voices are but another instrument, and the overall effect is what I generally am aware of.

    • Yeah, those two are my favorites on this soundtrack. 🙂 Lol, I have a kind of eclectic music taste, but rock and alternative tend to be my favorites. I like to try and match the sound and the lyrics with a scene, or with a particular character. “The Black Brigade” by Project 86 is heavier, faster, and louder, and I listened to it a lot during battle scenes. “Love Like You” by The Paper Tongues seemed happier, like they would be celebrating when this was playing, so I used it for the end. The two you liked – “Sarah” by Grant-Lee Phillips and “No Light, No Light” by Florence & The Machine – I used for the connection between Rina and Isaro, and the dreams they shared. Lol, I have fun putting songs together for my stories. 🙂
