Lyric Post

Lately I've been having annoying dreams that are making me go Agggggggh!

They don't make me cry, although for a few seconds after waking up, I very much want to. I don't even know why. I just do. They have happened at least 10 times in the past three nights. I am still up in the air as to whether call them dreams or nightmares. While they are happening they feel like neither actually; they feel real, and that is what makes them feel like nightmares when my eyes open and I say "It was a dream. It's over now, pay no attention to them."

I tell myself over and over and over, and then over and over and over again, that is all they are: dreams. There is nothing behind them. They are  dreams and nothing more. They mean nothing. I despise the fact that the Native American in me - darn you maternal grandmother that I've never even met - sends a feeling up and down my spine that there is a reason they are happening and that there is reason for them happening now.

It is beyond stupid. And even FARTHER beyond meaningless. The rhetoric of constantly repeating "They don't mean anything" in the twenty to thirty minutes spent fully waking up and getting out of bed puts this song/scene into my head, and oddly enough it is also in my head now. I have no idea why it's playing in my mind at this moment in particular since I hadn't even thought about the dreams much since this morning at all what with the excitement and nervousness about my final for class today. I want to see this episode, especially this part, to feel there is someone to identify with on this - even though realy it has nothing to do with it at all very much except that for some odd reason the feelings ABOUT the scene and the mood of the song seem to be intertwined and very simliar.

Walk Through The Fire
~ Once More With Feeling Soundtrack

*BUFFY*
I touch the fire, and it freezes me.
I look into it, and it's black.
Why can't I feel?
My skin should crack and peel. . .
I want the fire back.
 
*BUFFY*
Now through the smoke she calls to me,
To make my way across the flame:
To save the day, or maybe melt away.
I guess it's all the same.
 
*BUFFY*
So I will walk through the fire.
‘Cause where else can I turn?
I will walk through the fire
And let it -
 
*SPIKE*
The torch I bear is scorching me,
And Buffy's laughing, I've no doubt.
I hope she fries.
I'm free if that bitch dies!
I better help her out.
 
*SWEET*
‘Cause she is drawn to the fire.

(overlapping)

*SWEET*
Some people never learn.
*SPIKE*
She will never learn.
 
*SPIKE and SWEET*
And she will walk through the fire
And let it -
 
*GILES*
Will this do a thing to change her?
Am I leaving Dawn in danger?
Is my slayer too far gone to care?
 
*XANDER*
What if Buffy can't defeat it?
 
*ANYA*
Beady Eyes is right:
We're needed!
. . .
Or we could just sit around and glare. . .
 
*ANYA, GILES, TARA, WILLOW, XANDER*
We'll see it through.
It's what we're always here to do.
So, we will walk through the fire. . .
 
*BUFFY*
So one by one, they turn from me.
I guess my friends can't face the cold.
*TARA*
What can't we face,
*BUFFY*
But why I froze, not one among them knows. . .
*TARA*
if we're together?
*BUFFY*
And never can be told.
 
(overlapping)
*ANYA*
She came from the grave much graver.
*SWEET*
So one by one, they come to me,
*SPIKE*
First, he'll kill her, then I'll save her.
 
(overlapping)
*SWEET*
The distant redness as their guide.
*TARA*
Everything is turning out so dark. . .

(overlapping)

*BUFFY*
Going through the motions,
*SWEET*
That single flame
*SPIKE*
No, I'll save her, then I'll kill her.

(overlapping)
*BUFFY*
Walking through the part,
*SWEET*
Ain't what they had in mind.
*WILLOW*
I think this line is mostly filler.

(overlapping)
*SWEET*
It's what they have inside.
*GILES*
What's it going to take to strike a spark?
 
(overlapping)
*BUFFY*
These endless days are finally ending in a blaze.
*SWEET*
She will come to me.
 
*BUFFY, ANYA, GILES, SPIKE, TARA, WILLOW, XANDER*
And we are caught in the fire:
The point of no return.
So we will walk through the fire. . .
And let it –
 
Burn.
 
Let it burn . . .
Let it burn . . .
 
Let it
 
Burn!
 
*SWEET*
(speaking not singing anymore)
Showtime.

I'LL START THE NEXT SONG!
Life's a show
And we all play our parts
And when the music starts
We open up our hearts.

Re: I'LL START THE NEXT SONG!
Awesome.

"It's alright if somethings come out wrong
We'll sing a happy song
And you can sing along"
