[FANMIX] would rather be waltzin' with you

Medium: TV
Fandom: Sherlock
Subject: Sherlock/John (unrequited love : pining Sherlock)
Title: would rather be waltzin' with you
Warnings: Possible thematic and visual spoilers for S3:02 The Sign of Three.
Notes: This fanmix is made entirely of songs by Rufus Wainwright, because I am on a bit of a jag, and it fits. I don't make a lot of fanmixes, so I welcome comments, etc. Images are edited (marginally, poorly) by me.

cover end

01. one man guy
i'm gonna bathe and shave
and dress myself and eat solo every night
unplug the phone, sleep alone
stay away out of sight
sure it's kind of lonely
yeah it's sort of sick
being your own one and only
is a dirty selfish trick

02. in a graveyard
worldly sounds of endless warring
were for just a moment silent stars
worldly boundaries of dying
were for just a moment never ours
all was new
just as the black horizons blue
then along the bending path away
i smiled in knowing i’d be back one day

03. foolish love
i don’t want to hold you and feel so helpless
i don’t want to smell you and lose my senses
And smile in slow motion with eyes in love
i twist like a corkscrew, the sweetness rising
i drink from the bottle weeping
why won't you last?
why can't you last?
so i will walk without care
beat my snare
look like a man who means business
go to all the poshest places
with their familiar faces
terminate all signs of weakness

04. candles
turn one day in the cathedral
i finally lit you a candle
and all along the vaulted halls
the virgins did smile from their mantles
it’s always just that little bit more
that doesn’t get you what you’re looking for
but gets you where you need to go
but the churches have run out of candles

05. the one you love
i'm trying, trying to tell you
all that i can in a sweet and velvet tongue
but no words ever could sell you
sell you on me after all that I have done
i'm only the one you love
am i only the one you love?
the lady gloom and her hornets circling round
is now before us, the screaming's done without moving
one little move and for sure you will be stung

06. go or go ahead
but oh medusa kiss me and crucify
this unholy notion of the mythic power of love
look in her eyes, look in her eyes
forget about the ones that are crying
look in her eyes, look in her eyes
forget about the ones that are crying
go or go ahead

07. this love affair
i can't say that i'm waltzin'
not that i don't like waltzing
would rather be waltzin' with you
so i guess that i'm going
i guess that i am walking
i don't know
just away from this love affair

I haven't listen to Rufus in a long while, but I used to listen to him a lot. Maybe this will get me back to him. (:

The last song is sooo fitting.
