In All My Life (Ficmix)


The Fuckers by Alex (swell) is a fantastic story about a girl, Addie, and her life after the accidental death of her eleven year old brother, Ben. So far the story only has two chapters, but they're wonderfully written and dark and all of my favourite things. I've been told that the story is going to get lighter as it goes on, but in my opinion the darkness so far gives it a super cool vibe. I'm so excited for the introduction of all of the new characters and to see how the story progresses though. If you haven't read it yet, I highly suggest checking it out. I actually just commented on it last night, even though I've read it about 50 billion times because I adore it and am waiting not so patiently for the next chapters.

Alex requested this ficmix for me so long ago, and I've finally gotten it done. It's one of the longer ficmixes I've done, I believe, and I went with slower, indie songs because the chapters that she has up at the moment are darker, like I said. But I tried to put some "happier" songs near the end as well, so hopefully it turns out as well as I think it did! I really enjoy all of the songs in this playlist and I hope you guys will as well.

You can find the playlist on my 8tracks here.


World Spins Madly On - The Weepies
Woke up and wished that I was dead
With an aching in my head
I lay motionless in bed
I thought of you and where you'd gone
and let the world spin madly on

Without You - For King & Country
Sleepless, this madness is walking me out to the ledge
And stands there beside me, shivering out on the edge
And oh God all I, all I ask is a little relief, just a moment of peace
I don't want to live without you
I'm not ready to live without you

Middle Distance Runner - Sea Wolf
Well I'm so sad tonight
And the words won't come out right
It's been a long day on the track
And its stamina that I lack

Falling Out of Trees - Barcelona
I finally found out how long I can hang on
I've got this all wrong
My heart is scared, my heart is gone

Lifeline - Imogen Heap
Lifeline, before and after
in an instant of great white gravity
Hold tight, 'cause all is against me
Every cell in my body, brace,
and keep breathing,
keep breathing

Guiding Light - Foy Vance
'Cause the Sun is low,
and I yet have still so far to go,
my lonely heart is beating so,
tired of the wonder.

Worry - Jack Garratt
Everything I know
And all the lies I tell myself so I can sleep
Pick apart the pieces you left
Don't you worry about it

Not as We - Alanis Morissette
Day one day one start over again
Step one step one
I'm barely making sense for now
I'm faking it 'til I'm pseudo making it

Canyon Moon - Andrew McMahon and the Wilderness
She couldn't handle another season
Another ocean of fiction blue
Said a prayer to a dashboard Jesus
Death Valley and worn out shoes

In Your Arms - Chef'special
I know you're gone, I know you're gone
But I don't feel what I know
I know you're gone, I know you're gone
But my mind ain't in control
Cuz it's my heart that's been missing you
It's the heart I need to listen to

Circles - The Young Romans
Will only save us for a while
And wishing
Won't hide what we're missing

Across the Sea - The Sweeplings
Follow me down to the shore
We can cast our sail and grab the oars
We could float away and not come back
Darling if you'd just take my hand

The Moon Song - Karen O & Ezra Koenig
There's things I wish I knew
There's nothing I keep from you
It's a dark and shiny place
But with you my dear
I'm safe and we're a million miles away

Lucky - Kat Edmonson
So meet me at the rainbow's end
We don't even have to pretend
That we know what it is we're looking for
