Hiraeth (Of Things Unsaid): playlist for WIP fic.
Hiraeth: (n: Welsh) a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for lost places of your past
1: My Chemical Romance - Disenchanted {x}

Well, I was there on the day they sold the cause for the Queen / and when the lights all went out / we watched our lives on the screen / I hate the ending myself / but it started with an alright scene

2: The National - Sorrow {x}

Sorrow found me when I was young / Sorrow waited / sorrow won

3: The National - About Today {x}

Tonight, you just close your eyes / and I just watch you slip away / How close am I to losing you?

4: Switchfoot - Dare You To Move {x}

The tension is here / between who you are and who you could be / between how it is and how it should be

5: Cat Power - Fortunate Son {x}

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes / Oh, they send you down to war / And when you ask them, “How much should I give?” / they only answer, “More.”

6: Switchfoot - The War Inside {x} 

I am the war inside / I am the battleline / I am the rising tide / I am the war I fight

7: Editors - Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors {x}

Say goodbye to everyone you have ever known / you are not gonna’ see them / ever again

8: Bright Eyes - No One Would Riot For Less {x}

Little soldier, little insect, you know war has no heart / It will kill ye in the sunshine / or happily in the dark

9: Band of Horses - The Funeral {x}

To know me as hardly golden / is to know me all wrong, they warn / At every occasion I’ll be ready for the funeral

10: José González - Crosses {x}

Don’t you know that I’ll be around to guide you / through your weakest moments and leave them behind you

11:  James Blunt - No Bravery {x}

I see no bravery in your eyes anymore / Only sadness

12: Mumford & Sons - After The Storm {x}

 And now I cling to what I knew / I saw exactly what was true, but oh no more / That’s why I hold / That’s why I hold with all I have

13: My Chemical Romance - The Ghost Of You {x}

At the end of the world / or the last thing I see / you are never coming home

14: Skylar Grey - Coming Home Pt. 2 {x}

Still far away from where I belong / but it’s always darkest before the dawn / So you can doubt / and you can hate / but I know no matter what it takes / I’m coming home

15: Stars - In Our Bedroom After The War {x}

We won / or we think we did / When you went away you were just a kid / And if you lost it all / and you lost it / well, we’ll still be there when your war is over

16: Lior - Safety of Distance {x}

Compassion is the measure of a man / It won’t bring back lovers and friends / but it might make for a happier end
