fullmetal alchemist - alphonse elric - here comes the sun

alphonse elric, here comes the sun.

backseat goodbye, calico kitten
if my life had a soundtrack it would be acoustic, with songs about the way
i laugh and my ability to love things that i can't have. there's a calico kitten
prancing across a rooftop, he's watching all the cars as they pass. this new height
makes him homesick, he misses his mother the most. his long days by the window
they're long, long gone. i had a good day, 'cause i didn't die, or have to
wait in any really long lines at the store.

metric, gimme sympathy
get hot, get too close to the flame, wild open space. got no time to take a picture,
i'll remember someday, all the chances we took, we're so close to something better
left unknown. we're so close to something better left unknown, i can feel it in my bones.  
you're gonna make mistakes, you're young. play me something like "here comes the sun."

stone sour, through glass
how do you feel? that is the question. but i forget you don't expect an easy answer.
when something like a soul becomes initialized and folded up like paper dolls and
little notes, you can't expect a little hope. and while you're outside looking in,
describing what you see, remember what you're staring at is me. no one ever tells you
that forever feels like home, sitting all alone inside your head.

bright eyes, something vague
there's a dream in my brain that won't go away. i'm standing on a bridge in the town
where i lived as a kid with my mom and my brother, and the bridge disappears and
i'm standing on air with nothing holding me. and i hang like a star, glow in the dark,
for all those starved eyes to see. do these dreams have any meaning? no, no, i think
it's more like a ghost that's been following us both. something vague that
we're not seeing, something more like a feeling.

incubus, dig
look me in the eye, and ask for forgiveness. we'll make a pact to never speak
that word again. yes, you are my friend. we all have someone that digs at us,
atleast we dig each other. so when sickness turns my ego off, i know you'll count
on the me from yesterday. sing this song, remind me that we'll always have each other,
when everything else is gone.

yeah yeah yeahs, skeletons
soon comes the rain, dry your eyes. frost or flame, skeleton me, fall asleep,
spin the sky. skeleton me, love, don't cry. skeleton me, skeleton me, skeleton.

stars, my radio [fm mix]
it's hard to remember days, mornings lost in a chronic haze. breath is fast
and trains are slow, i barely feel it though. all day long i fantasized in the dark
behind other people's eyes. the truth, i'll tell the truth, sixteen on a summer roof,
you ask for facts, well i'll give you proof. hot sun on skin, i touched it, it felt good.
count my blessing and my thumbs, say: "thanks god for whatever comes."

[masterlist of mixes]

a/n: the first song on this mix just feels so very like alphonse to me that i knew i had to make a full mix with it. i wanted the sound & songs to give that sense of his youth, and his gentle personality, and his insecurities and struggles with the things that life has thrown at him (+a happy ending song to wrap it all up!) i rather like how it turned out (: [vague spoilers for full manga/brotherhood anime]
