hope for the hopeless | an anohana fansoundtrack

I had a total love/hate relationship with this show, I can't even begin to explain all the mixed feelings regarding it. I am not blind towards the show's numerous faults, but at this point, I am kind of vaguely optimistic about how it'll end as long as it does end satisfactorily though for all my grumblings, this show is good, in its own way. One irony of the show I really like was put down perfectly in words by this anime blogger : " The more things start coming together, the more everyone starts falling apart. Menma tears the group apart as much as she brings it together. " Just ugh. Those kind of quiet realizations are the ones that hit the hardest and makes you go all "man this is good stuff".

Tsurumi is one of my favourite characters in the show, and this ship is one close to my heart from episode one because theirs is the kind of assured with each other close-friends,dynamic that I really go for (some may argue that he's a whole lot closer to anjou, but i digress). I've been thinking a lot about them and their relationship and after reading ibuberu 's fic yesterday (I blame her for this mix, haha) I  inspired to put this together and post it before the finale. It's nothing much to be honest, just a selection of songs I put together to read the fic by aka me picking songs that reminded me of the tone this pairing and not caring much about lyrics/storyline whatsoever, buuut I just want to get it out here, out of my system. The lyrics a little AU at certain parts though (I can't help it if they're that way inside my head) and I tried to make a little order out of the mess but I don't think it made much of an impact on the sound of it. The cover is pretty simple and generic, but for those interested enough to care, the cap I used as the base is this one (one of my favourite caps to come from the show - train tracks are somehow very relevant to the both of them) Enjoy!

"She waited for the train to pass. Then she said, "I sometimes think that people’s hearts are like deep wells. Nobody knows what’s at the bottom. All you can do is imagine by what comes floating to the surface every once in a while."

desperado emi fujita (eagle cover)
(tsurumi ➟ matsuyuki)

You're losin' all your highs and lows
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away?
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate

orbiting the weepies
(he realizes how little he knows her)

And I'm out of your range
Now it's kind of strange
How we change orbit in our lives

sad eyes bat for lashes
(tsurumi ➟ matsuyuki, vice versa)

I don't like the things you don't say
Leaving it for such a long long time
Why do you show me those sad sad eyes
I can tell that you're lonely
But it seems now
There's nothing you want me to do

i was only going out lonely dear

Now I wish it didn't bother me no more
All the things that made me dark for such a time
And I sell my heart to make it all turn right
I could run from it, but it always catches up

gravity coldplay
(tsurumi, matsuyuki)

and i could see
oh, the way that gravity turns for you and me
and then i looked up at the sky
and saw the sun
and the way that gravity turns on everyone
on everyone

sometimes we touch olivia ong (dan hill cover)

Romance and all its strategy
Leaves me battling with my pride
But through the insecurity
Some tenderness survives
I'm just another writer
Still trapped within my truth
A hesitant prize fighter
Still trapped within my youth

At times I understand you
And I know how hard you've tried
I've watched while love commands you
And I've watched love pass you by

At times I think we're drifters
Still searching for a friend
A brother or a sister
But then the passion flares again

these quiet times shady bard

I'll catch you falling
When you least expect
