Bangel -

Consequences by Camila Cabello

The Kind of Love You Never Recover From by Christine Lavin (I think I first came across that one in a Bangel fic years ago)


Not to mention basically anything Sarah McLachlan

Also it’s not really a ship song specifically - more just Buffy, and her relationship to everyone and no one - but “Once Upon Another Time” by Sara Bareilles reminds me so much of her return from heaven

Willow & Tara - hurts like hell
The video was made by @Jenn Rose. The video is amazing and the lyrics fit them sooo well! I did a video for them with this song once too, but I can't upload my videos.

I love making and watching those kind of videos, there are sooo many good ones!!!

For Spuffy:

"Meet me in the middle,
Tell me something
That could change my mind
I couldn't let it be known,
This it is every time I refuse to say goodbye"

I've been listening to this song a lot lately and reminds me of Spike and Buffy. If you have time I recommend the whole Unreality album.


Lyrics:
The rain falls around me, and from beyond a distant fog
The shadows that could render us asunder
The waves crash around me, pulling towards a deepest dark
I struggle just to keep from going under
It's all I can do
A dream world, a glory, a call from the depths of hell
I'm sickened by the terrible reminder
A fantasy, a fools' escape, a hopefulness, a sweet embrace
Illusions that this horror is behind us
It's all I can do
But I might fall to pieces
Might not pull through
A solid place, a secret want, a dream too dangerous to hold
Deny myself despite that I have found you
A shattered fist, a solid wall, continuously rise and fall
Ignore the dreadful thought that it's impossible to have it all
Impossible to have it all
Impossible to have it all
Impossible, impossible, impossible to have it all

"You were always faster than me
I'll never catch up with you, with you
Oh I can feel them coming for me
And you were always faster than me
I'll never catch up with you, with you
Oh I can feel them coming for me"

S7 love (this the song of their nigh together in "Touched":

Goodbye To You (Heather Nova)

I used to think that I knew what we needed
I just assumed we would always be fine
Now I don't think that we lost the feeling
But we, let everything build up inside
It's only love
But love... should make us strong It's only love
But love... has been hurting so long

It's only love
But love... should make us strong
It's only love
But love... has been hurting so... long

But...but...but... You've missed the best lines! :eek: "And it's all an eternity / Hoping to learn / Only love". I think it's these words that play over the final Buffy/Spike part of the montage. Important, I think, because it marks the ephemeral moment within the eternal (which this is). Poignant because there'll be (in theory) no "eternity" for them (because of Chosen) but also relevant to S12 because, as Spike says, he isn't going anywhere. Eternity reinstated. :)

This song for Spuffy. It's not that shippy, but it perfectly describes their relationship in S6. Even non-Spuffy fans can agree.

Save Yourself by Stabbing Westward

I know your life is empty

Referring to how Buffy feels after being pulled out of heaven
And you hate to face this world alone

Buffy is isolated from her friends and trying to seek comfort in Spike
So you're searching for an angel

Buffy wants someone to love, someone like an angel, or...an "Angel"
Someone who can make you whole

Buffy just wants to feel again, she uses Spike for this
I can not save you
Spike can not pull Buffy back from the brink
I can't even save myself

Spike is obviously damaged, and hardly a source of comfort.
So just save yourself

Buffy needs to figure things out for herself, she can't rely on Spike
I know that you've been damaged
Obviously Buffy has had to do a lot of awful things in her lifetime, and now she's been kicked out of heaven
Your soul has suffered such abuse

Literally, her "soul" has been put through so much
But I am not your savior

Referring to how Spike will not help Buffy
I am just as f**k*d as you

Spike thinks that Buffy and him are quite similar in this respect
I can not save you
I can't even save myself
So just save yourself
Please don't take pity on me

Due to Spike's obsessive love for Buffy, he doesn't want to be viewed as a "fool for love" ever again.
Please don't take pity on me
Please don't take pity on me
Please don't take pity on me
My life has been a nightmare

Obviously, as he is a dangerous vampire
My soul is fractured to the bone

Again, this is quite literal and obvious
If I must be lonely

This has a similar message to rest in peace
I think I'd rather be alone (I think I'd rather be alone)

If Buffy can't bring herself to the dark side, he doesn't want her taunting him (at least that's what he says)
You can not save me
Speaks to how Buffy can't just simply make Spike a better man
You can't even save yourself

Buffy isn't doing very well herself
I can not save you
I can't even save myself
Save yourself
So just save yourself

What did you think?

Do you recognize this song? Hint: Spuffy S6

Bush - Out Of This World

"Are you drowning or waving?
I just want you to save me
Should we try to get along?
Just try to get along"

OMG, this is such a beautiful song! I can listen to it over and over and over gain...

For Spuffy S6: That kind of Love by Alison Krauss

"Who would sell their soul for love?
Or waste one tear on compromise
Should be easy enough
To know a heartache in disguise
But the heart rules the mind
And the going gets rough
Pride takes the fall
When you find that kind of love

.
.
.
I can't help feeling like a fool
Since I lost that place inside
Where my heart knew its way
And my soul was ever wise
Once innocence was lost

There was not faith enough
Still my heart held on
When it found that kind of love
"

Spuffy S6, from Spike's PVO: Iris by Goo Goo Dolls: 10/10

"And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now


And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
And sooner or later it's over
I just don't wanna miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's meant to be broken
I just want you to know who I am


And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive"

Think this one fits spuffy around the time of life serial - Tabula Rasa, from spikes pov

Bitter Glass
Feeder
The thought of never knowing, could kill me just the same
The solitary blossom, the mind is of a friend

What are you saying, you've got nothing to live for
You're tired and broken, you just can't free yourself

And all the words we've spoken, are buried in the sand
The ruptured and the broken, that taste of bitter glass

What are you saying, you've got nothing to live for
You're tired and broken, you just can't free yourself
What are you saying, it's just a part of rejection
Pulling you deeper, you just can't free yourself

Your voluntary loving, apologies have passed and come around again
The fragments of a reason, the taste of bitter glass

So what are you saying, you've got nothing to live for
You're tired and broken, you just can't free yourself
What are you saying, it's just a part of rejection
Pulling you deeper, you just can't free yourself

Not in reference to a ship but the song they chose during lonely heart (touched by Vast) has some lyrics which fit perfectly to the whole buffyverse from a fan pov

I looked into your eyes and saw
A world that does not exist
I looked into your eyes and saw
A world I wish I was in

There's also a song by feeder called Home for Summer, which came out around the time of the gift which still brings a lump to my throat when I hear it cos it reminds me of the end scene so much

"...what's in store for us today
It's never gonna feel the same
I'm waiting for an angel now
To carry me above the clouds

It's a long way home for the summer(s)
It's a long way way up without a ladder
It's a long way home
And it's a long way down

Life's a picture show
Frame by frame we grow"

Spuffy song: Game of Survival by Ruelle

Who is chasing whom? Who is the hunter? Who is the prey? Who takes the lead?

Who's in the shadows?
Who's ready to play?
Are we the hunters?
Or are we the prey?
There's no surrender
And there's no escape
Are we the hunters?
Or are we the prey?

This is a wild game of survival
This is a wild game of survival
