    Fan Art: Godric. 

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen any Godric fan art.  I suspect that once he makes his re-appearance in flashbacks during True Blood S3, we’ll have more.  In the meantime, enjoy this digital painting of bloody-mouthed Godric.

    “Songs for Godric” WINNERS! 

    Okay, folks.  Thanks so much for all of your song picks.  I had a tough time choosing a song that captured what Sookie might be feeling the moment after Godric meets his final death in the Dallas dawn.

    So without further ado, the winners are:

    1) luvtheshoes: Adele, “Hometown Glory.”

    The piano intro is gorgeous with a slightly haunting lilt to it which seems to go perfectly with the moment in the episode. Additionally the song lyrics talk about going to the city (Dallas) and one set of lines particularly says “Is there anything I can do for you dear? Is there anyone I can call?”
    “No and thank you, please Madam. I ain’t lost, just wandering”. That really speaks to me about both Sookie and Godric both finding their own way on this Earth but not feeling lost about it. Plus, Sookie’s gesture of staying with Godric mirrors the sentiment of “Is there anything I can do for you, dear?”

    (And the artist’s name is Adele…just like Sookie’s gran!)

    2) Ariel Chambers: Norah Jones, “The long day is gone”

    Feeling tired
    By the fire
    The long day is over

    The wind is gone
    Asleep at dawn
    The embers burn on

    With no reprise
    The sun will rise
    The long day is over

    Congratulations to luvtheshoes and Ariel Chambers! You get to bathe with Eric!  Take a moment and listen to their pics, and better yet, go through the comments and listen to all of the great songs people chose!

    My song choice for Godric. 

    I’ve asked all of you to give me your choice for the one song that captures what Sookie is feeling the moment after Godric goes up in the blue flame. Guess it’s only fair that share mine.

    My choice? Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra vs Nino Moschello’s “Kiss the Sky.” Here are the lyrics:

    I hold my head up just enough to see the sky
    And when we go we won’t go slow we’ll put up such a fight
    When they fade into the dust and into ash
    All children know this pain will surely pass
    Strong and wise and they are love
    When the tide it come they will float above and
    And you will be one day exactly what you are
    Just keep your head up high kiss your fist and touch the sky

    It’s not too late to keep the world from dying
    It’s not too late to spread the love you have
    One day when we are ready for crying
    One day I know we’ll all be there

    The sound we hear it is our hearts they are in time
    They’re poundig clear and swift the beat forever in our minds
    It gives us hope it gives the strenghth, you know, to carry on
    Keep fighting till the end and past the end we will be strong

    It’s not too late to keep the world from dying
    It’s not too late to spread the love and share
    One day I know we’ll all be there

    Yes we will

    Sure, the funk/soul drive of the song might not be something that you’d fine in Sookie Stackhouse’s music collection.  That said, it works for me — the music leaves you feeling remorseful yet not regretful, due to the underlying optimism in the lyrics.

      Old and Wise – Alan Parson Project

      As far as my eyes can see
      There are shadows approaching me
      And to those I left behind
      I wanted you to know
      You’ve always shared my deepest thoughts
      You follow where I go

      CHORUS
      And oh when I’m old and wise
      BItter words mean little to me
      Autumn winds will blow right through me
      And someday in the mist of time
      When they asked me if I knew you
      I’d smile and say you were a friend of mine
      And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes
      Oh when I’m old and wise

      As far as my eyes can see
      There are shadows surrounding me
      And to those I leave behind
      I want you all to know
      You’ve always shared my darkest hours
      I’ll miss you when I go

      CHORUS
      And oh, when I’m old and wise
      Heavy words that tossed and blew me
      Like autumn winds will blow right through me
      And someday in the mist of time
      When they ask you if you knew me
      Remember that you were a friend of mine
      As the final curtain falls before my eyes
      Oh when I’m old and wise

      As far as my eyes can see
      Send “Old And Wise” Ringtone to your Cell

    Contest: Goodbye, Godric. 

    Goodbye, Godric.

    Goodbye, Godric.

    Ok, folks. It’s contest time again.  I need one song that captures what Sookie is feeling in this moment.

    To refresh your memory, this is the moment right after Godric has met his final death in the sun in one glorious blue flame.  Sookie is staring out into the distance toward the sun on the rooftop of the Hotel Carmilla.

    What song captures this moment?  Tell me and you could win THIS:

    eric by unikissa

    Wash away your tears for Godric with Eric.

    My lovely friend, @unikissa, was kind enough to permit me to use her beautiful painting, Eric’s Tear, so I could work with the the folks at DugShop to create this one-of-a-kind soap. The fragrance?  Spa Tonic, a light fresh blend of green tea, lemon and aloe.

    Did I mention that it’s Eric?  And that it glows-in-the-dark?  Check out their other True Blood Bill and Eric soaps here.

    The rules?  Leave me a song title and artist in the “comments” section of this post. As always, bonus points if you include links to the song and/or lyrics.  Extra bonus points if you explain why you chose the song.  Keep in mind that I have to approve every comment posted, so don’t freak out if you don’t see your comment show up immediately.

    Contest ends Sunday, August 23, at 7pm, CDT.  International folks, you’re welcome to participate, but if you win, you’re prize will be sent to you C.O.D.

    Look forward to hearing your picks!

          Posted once but don’t see it here so I’ll try again…
          My song choice would be Meadows of Heaven by Nightwish: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTif4koVr7M

          It’s a haunting lament for innocence lost – which pretty much makes me think of Sookie. How could you not long for the carefree days gone by when everything is crashing down and your world is chaos? She’s survived so much in so short a time and just witnessed the passing of Godric not to mention the breakdown of Eric (someone she thought didn’t have any feelings) – it would make you question everything. The opening notes of the song carry such a sadness and seem to fit perfectly with Sookie gazing at the spot Godric stood just moments before – makes me cry just listening to it.

          I close my eyes
          The lantern dies
          The scent of awakening
          Wildhoney and dew

          Childhood games
          Woods and lakes
          Streams of silver
          Toys of olden days

          Meadows of heaven

          The flowers of wonder
          And the hidden treasures
          In the meadow of life
          My acre of heaven
          A 5-year-old winterheart
          In a place called home
          Sailing the waves of past

          Meadows of heaven

          Rocking chair without a dreamer
          A wooden swing without laughter
          Sandbox without toy soldiers
          Yuletide without the Flight

          Dreambound for life

          Flowers wither, treasures stay hidden
          Until I see the 1st star of fall

          I fall asleep
          And see it all:
          Mother’s care
          And color of the kites

          Meadows of heaven

        I have two and I can’t decide between them so I’ll give you both.

        The first is Cold- A Different Kind of Pain

        “A Different Kind Of Pain”

        Before i let you go
        Give me just one more night to show you
        Just how i feel
        I lost all my control
        If it takes my whole damnned life i’ll
        Make this up to you

        Im kinda like the waves that roll their whole life
        Towards somewhere crashing it on the shore
        Thats blown in by the wind that carries the clouds
        To hide my wish on a fallen star

        A differnt kind of pain, is someone there to hold you
        Is someone there to take you away from me

        I tried to let you go
        I wish i could turn back time and show
        You just how i feel
        I needed you to know
        If it takes my whole damned life i’ll
        Make this up to you

        Before you let me go, i needed you to know

        The next one is Crossfade–Colors

        Colors lyrics

        Can you feel it crush you? Does it seem to bring the worst in you out?
        There’s no running away from these things that hold you down
        Do they complicate you because they make you feel like this?
        Of all the colors that you’ve shined this is surely not your best

        But you should know these colors that you’re shining are…

        [Chorus x2:]
        Surely not the best colors that you shine

        I know you feel alone, yeah, and no one else can figure you out
        But don’t you ever turn away from the ones that help you down?
        Well they’d love to save you. Don’t you know they love to see you smile?
        But these colors that you’ve shined are surely not your style

        [Chorus x2]

        I know you’re feeling like you’re lost
        But you should know these colors that you’re shinin are
        I know you’re feeling like you’re lost,
        You feel you’ve drifted way too far
        Did you know these colors that you’re shinin’ are

        [Chorus x2]

        Surely not the best..
        (I know you’re feeling like you’re lost)
        Colors that you shine..
        (but you should know these colors that you’re shining are)
        Surely not the best..
        (I know you’re feeling like you’re lost you feel you`ve drifted way too far)
        Did you know these colors that you’re shinin’ are..

        i think that we don’t need much words to describe what sookie feels in this moment. she doesn’t know godric well but yet she cares about him. and i think at the moment of leaving she’s confused by all that and that’s why shy cries.

        that’s why my pick is: MOBY – WHY DOES MY HEART FEEL SO BAD

      I think Stand by Rascal Flatts would be a perfect choice because the song to me is about rising from the pain of adversity. Even though life and circumstance side swipe you and knock you to your knees, you get, you keep fighting, you “stand” and LIVE.

      Somewhere Only We Know – Keane

      Why? Analysis with Lyrics in quotes: Because Godric was wondering if he’d go to heaven- go to God… and he was “getting tired and needed somewhere to begin (lyric)” anew… the vampire afterlife. And “Oh simple thing, where have you gone, I’m getting old and I need somethign to rely on” – Godric was very old and could rely on Sookie’s tender heart there at the end, her simple human tears renewed his wonder at life “So tell me when, you’re going to let me in, I’m getting tired and i need somewhere to begin” Could be a double entendre with Eric- when is he going to let love in? When will Sookie let him in? “And if you have a minute why don’t we go, talk about it somewhere only we know” Godric and Sookie (and eric) went to the roof…”This could be the end of everything” it was for Godric! and maybe for Eric’s stoney behavior- and maybe the beginning of the end of Sookie & Bill? “… so why don’t we go, somewhere only we know” ITS THE BEST SONG! Exhilirating, tender, romantic, bittersweet.

      Kind and Generous by Natalie Merchant http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdG618TMc5E

      Why? Because Godric saved Sookie many times and did everything he could to create peace among his people and the FoTS. He was always kind, no matter what was said to him. Like the lyrics says “For your kindess, I’m in debt to you” and Sookie is at this point. Which is why she went up to the roof in the first place. 🙂

      Soul Meets Body – Deathcab for Cutie — this is such a beautifully peaceful song, it makes me feel what it would be like to die happily, without any regrets, just the simple joy & tranquility that Godric displayed in his heartwrenching act of meeting the sun.

      Elliott Smith’s A Fond Farewell.

      In particular:
      “Pitch burning on a shining sheet, The only maker that you’d want to meet. The dying man in a living room who’s shadow paces the floor. He’ll take you out any open door. This is not my life, It’s just a fond farewell to a friend. It’s not what I’m like, It’s just a fond farewell to a friend who couldn’t get things right.
      Fond farewell to a friend. He said really I just wanna dance, Good and evil matched perfect it’s a great romance. I can deal with some psychic pain If it’ll slow down my higher brain”

      and

      “I see you’re leaving me and taking up with the enemy. The cold comfort of the in between.
      A little less than a human being, A little less than a happy high, A little less than a suicide”

      Lucky Man by Emerson, Lake and Palmer – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRFpXPu_7wE&feature=related

      This song is about a man who had everything life had to offer and then some, but in the end none of those things could save him. Maybe Sookie felt he was “lucky” because he had experienced centuries of life that a human would never be able to see, and he died with total dignity.

      Plus, it’s a really bitchin’ tune.

      “I’m With You” by Avril Lavinge. A haunting song by this faux-rocker, but it is beautiful. With the lyrics: “I’m standing on the bridge/ I’m waiting on the dark/I thought that you’d be here by now/There’s nothing but the rain/ no foot steps on the ground/ I’m listening but there’s no sound” this is perfect for what Sookie had to go through watching Godric burn the light.

        Meadows Of Heaven by Nightwish: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTif4koVr7M
        It’s a haunting lament for innocence lost which pretty much sums up Sookie – wouldn’t she be wishing for her old life when everything is in chaos around her? For the loved ones gone and a more carefree time? The opening instrumental notes have a sadness to them that captures you emotionally and seem to fit perfectly with the image of Sookie gazing where Godric stood just moments before.

        I close my eyes, The lantern dies
        The scent of awakening, Wild honey and dew
        Childhood games, woods and lakes
        Streams of silver , toys of olden days

        Meadows of heaven

        Lands of wonder, and of hidden treasure
        In the meadow of life, my acre of heaven
        A five year old winter heart
        In a place called home sailing the waves of past

        Meadows of Heaven

        Rocking chair without a dreamer
        A wood and a spring without laughter
        Sandbox without toy soldiers
        Yuletide without the flight, dreambound for life

        Flowers wither, treasures stay hidden
        Until I see the first star fall
        I fall asleep and see it all
        Mother’s care and colors of the kites

        Meadows of heaven

      It Doesn’t Matter – Alison Krauss and Union Station

      It doesn’t matter what I want
      It doesn’t matter what I need
      It doesn’t matter if I cry
      Don’t matter if I bleed
      You’ve been on a road
      Don’t know where it goes or where it leads

      It doesn’t matter what I want
      It doesn’t matter what I need
      If you’ve made up your mind to go
      I won’t beg you to stay
      You’ve been in a cage
      Throw you to the wind you fly away

      It doesn’t matter what I want
      It doesn’t matter what I need
      It doesn’t matter if I cry
      Doesn’t matter if I bleed
      Feel the sting of tears
      Falling on this face you’ve loved for years

      I would think that Sookie would have been thinking about the relationship between Eric and Godric. So this song would be from Eric’s perspective for Godric.

        “phoenix burn” by alpha rev.

        I need love that will release me
        keep me honest, keep me happy
        I need a peace with understanding
        Trying to find a softer landin

        I wanna know when I can change this
        Or give it up and just embrace it
        I need to find a way of letting it go
        When everything falls apart

        I’ve taken too much, given up
        I am twisted, burnin, breaking up
        I need to find a way of letting it go
        When everything falls apart
        I could try, but I’d never take it
        Yell and I will never be heard
        You will be my phoenix burn
        I could run, but I’d never reach it
        Leave but I might never return
        You will be my phoenix burn

        I wanna push through the undiscovered
        Find my answers, leave them uncovered
        I wanna speak out what I believe in
        That love will heal us, give us our freedom
        I wanna see what’s on the horizon
        Change directions, stop the fightin
        I need to find a way of letting it go
        When everything falls apart

        I’ve taken too much, given up
        I am twisted, burnin, breaking up
        I need to find a way of letting it go
        When everything falls apart
        I could try, but I’d never take it
        Yell and I will never be heard
        You will be my phoenix burn
        I could run, but I’d never reach it
        Leave but I might never return
        You will be my phoenix burn

        Let me burn
        Let me burn
        Let me burn
        Let me burn

        Yeah, I’ve taken too much, given up
        I am twisted, burnin, breaking up
        I need to find a way of letting it go
        When everything falls apart
        I could try, but I’d never take it
        Yell and I will never be heard
        You will be my phoenix burn
        I could run, but I’d never reach it
        Leave but I might never return

        You will be my phoenix burn
        You will be my phoenix burn
        You will be my phoenix burn

        Flow by Qntal

        Flow, my tears, fall from your springs!
        exiled for ever let me mourn;
        where night’s black bird her sad infamy sings,
        there let me live forlorn.

        Hark, you shadows that in darkness dwell,
        learn to contemn light.
        happy, happy they that in hell
        feel not the world’s despite.

        Down, vain lights, shine you no more!
        no nights are dark enough for those
        that in despair their lost fortunes deplore;
        light doth but shame disclose.

        I have to say this is a perfect choice! Just my opinion.

        Well, “Who Wants to Live Forever” IS a great choice, but a think it fits best Godric´s feelings and his last moments with Eric (during the last three episodes), rather than Sookie´s…

        (And for those who think Godric was innocent, apparently he wan´t completely changed from the books, look at his face when Sookie argues he saved her from a “very large rapist”…)

      I need love that will release me
      keep me honest, keep me happy
      I need a peace with understanding
      Trying to find a softer landin

      I wanna know when I can change this
      Or give it up and just embrace it
      I need to find a way of letting it go
      When everything falls apart

      I’ve taken too much, given up
      I am twisted, burnin, breaking up
      I need to find a way of letting it go
      When everything falls apart
      I could try, but I’d never take it
      Yell and I will never be heard
      You will be my phoenix burn
      I could run, but I’d never reach it
      Leave but I might never return
      You will be my phoenix burn

      I wanna push through the undiscovered
      Find my answers, leave them uncovered
      I wanna speak out what I believe in
      That love will heal us, give us our freedom
      I wanna see what’s on the horizon
      Change directions, stop the fightin
      I need to find a way of letting it go
      When everything falls apart

      I’ve taken too much, given up
      I am twisted, burnin, breaking up
      I need to find a way of letting it go

      Let me burn

      Yeah, I’ve taken too much, given up
      I am twisted, burnin, breaking up
      I need to find a way of letting it go
      When everything falls apart
      I could try, but I’d never take it
      Yell and I will never be heard

      If nobody cared – Nickleback

      From underneath the trees, we watch the sky
      Confusing stars for satellites
      I never dreamed that you’d be mine
      But here we are, we’re here tonight

      Singing Amen, I, I’m alive
      Singing Amen, I, I’m alive

      [Chorus:]
      If everyone cared and nobody cried
      If everyone loved and nobody lied
      If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
      Then we’d see the day when nobody died

      And I’m singing Amen

      Amen I, Amen I, I’m alive
      Amen I, Amen I, Amen I, I’m alive

      And in the air the fireflies
      Our only light in paradise
      We’ll show the world they were wrong
      And teach them all to sing along

      Singing Amen, I, I’m alive
      Singing Amen, I, I’m alive
      (I’m alive)

      [Chorus x2]

      And as we lie beneath the stars
      We realize how small we are
      If they could love like you and me
      Imagine what the world could be

      If everyone cared and nobody cried
      If everyone loved and nobody lied
      If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
      Then we’d see the day when nobody died
      When nobody died…

      [Chorus]

      We’d see the day, we’d see the day
      When nobody died
      We’d see the day, we’d see the day
      When nobody died
      We’d see the day when nobody died

      Rascal Flatts: Bless the Broken Road
      Because Bill has loved her. But Godric has shown her another kind of love. Compassion, Mercy, Forgiveness, Hope. And while losing him was heartbreaking she wouldn’t change anything. Her life is better just having had Godric as her friend.

      I set out on a narrow way, many years ago
      Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
      But I got lost a time or two
      Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
      I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you

      Every long lost dream led me to where you are
      Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
      Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
      This much I know is true

      That God blessed the broken road
      That led me straight to you
      Yes He did

      I think about the years I spent, just passing through
      I’d like to have the time I lost, and give it back to you
      But you just smile and take my hand
      You’ve been there, you understand
      It’s all part of a grander plan that is coming true

      Every long lost dream led me to where you are
      Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
      Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
      This much I know is true

      That God blessed the broken road
      That led me straight to you

      But now I’m just rolling home into my lover’s arms
      This much I know is true

      That God blessed the broken road
      That led me straight to you

      That God blessed the broken road
      That led me straight to you

      Evanescence = Breath No More

      The reason I picked this song is simply because its got a hauntingly mellow feel to it, and I throughout the song, the listener is drawn into the hollow feeling.
      I think Godric would feel that ‘I know the difference between me and my reflection’
      and Sookie, watching, would feel that hopelessness of being unable say or do anything that would help: Too sharp to put back together.

      The whole song also has a hopeless feel to it, the singer has already decided that her life is over, already aware that the end is there – just like Godric.

      I Burn by Toadies

      It’s a song about mistakes made and atonement for them.

      Driftin’ upward
      Gently lifting
      Lazy on the wind

      Rollin’ over
      Turnin’ slowly
      Beginning and the end

      Fire is bright
      Fire is clean
      Never so alive

      Smoke is freedom
      Flame is mercy
      I am free tonight

      And I burn
      I burn

      Stoke the embers
      Cleanse the spirit
      A prayer in every spark

      Feel the lick of
      Bad religion
      The finish and the start

      In the beginning
      We were smarter
      ‘n flame was heaven-sent

      Through the ages
      We got stupid
      Now we must repent

      And I burn
      I burn

      Save the ashes
      For reminders
      Stony things remain

      Tooth and bone
      unimpressive
      I have left these things

      Because fire is bright
      Fire is clean
      efficient and divine

      Tooth and bone
      Charms and dolls
      I am free tonight

      I BURN
      THE AIR
      YOU BREATHE

      I BURN
      THE AIR
      YOU BREATHE

      I BURN
      THE AIR
      YOU BREATHE

      I burn
      I burn
      I burn

      I’d like to cast my vote for “Calling All Angels” by Jane Siberry and K.D. Lang. I’ve attached a clip from the version that was performed in an episode of “Six Feet Under” because it was the first time I’d ever heard the song and it really touched me.

      “Dead Man’s Will” By Iron & Wine

      My reasoning: The song is almost a lament for a life that is now ending, but remembering the people who matter. To me, Eric is the recipient of each item from the will–“Father, brother, son”. But also, lover and mother, “There are centuries of faith and love between us.” (And you could go by the book’s literal lover part if you wanted). It has a mellow, lamenting mood, but it also has hope. It’s like Godric asking Sookie to take care of Eric, to “carry out his last will”, if you will.

      Give this stone to my brother
      Cuz we found it playing in the barnyard
      Many years ago

      Give this bone to my father
      He’ll remember hunting in the hills
      When I was 10 years old

      May my love reach you all
      I lost it in myself and buried it too long
      Now that I come to fall
      Please say it’s not too late
      Now that I’m dead and gone

      Give this string to my mother
      It pulled the baby teeth she keeps inside the drawer
      Give this ring to my lover
      I was scared and stupid not to ask
      For her hand long before

      May my love reach you all
      I lost it in myself and buried it too long
      Now that I come to fall
      Please say it’s not too late
      Now that I’m dead and gone

      Into the brave new world
      I hope I see you on the other side
      Of this changing world

      Baby when my ship pulls in
      I try to believe in anyone
      Look at the state I’m in.

      But for now
      I’m just sitting at the table
      Hearing songs
      Wishing I was able, stable
      NAH NAH NAH NAH NAH x 3
      I hope I see you on the other side x 2

      Brother don’t try to find
      Don’t try to believe in anyone
      For I would change your mind

      Baby when my ship pulls in
      I try to believe in anyone
      Look at the state I’m in, I’m fine

      But for now
      I’m just sitting at the table
      Hearing songs
      Wishing I was able, stable
      NAH NAH NAH NAH NAH x 6
      I hope I see you on the other side x6

      Farewell my friend – dennis wilson

      i think this song is a simple statement for a new friend who was going to a better place, and Sookie was glad she could be there for him in a way nobody else could.

      lyrics:

      Farewell my friend
      My beautiful friend
      Farewell

      You take the high road
      And I’ll take the low road
      And we’ll meet again
      Farewell my friend

      I love you
      In a funny way

      You take the high road
      I’ll take the low road
      And we will meet again
      Farewell my friend

      Oh I want to see you again
      Oh farewell
      Farewell
      Oh I want to see you again
      Farewell
      Oh I’m on the mountain again
      Oh farewell
      Oh I want to see you again
      Oh my friend
      Oh that’s when I’ll see you again
      Farewell
      Oh I want to see you again

      Meatloaf, Bat out of Hell

      The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling
      Way down in the valley tonight
      Theres a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
      And a blade shining oh so bright
      Theres evil in the air and theres thunder in the sky
      And a killers on the bloodshot streets
      And down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
      Oh I swear I saw a young boy
      Down in the gutter
      He was starting to foam in the heat
      Oh baby youre the only thing in this whole world
      Thats pure and good and right
      And wherever you are and wherever you go
      Theres always gonna be some light
      But I gotta get out
      I gotta break it out now
      Before the final crack of dawn
      So we gotta make the most of our one night together
      When its over you know
      Well both be so alone

      Like a bat out of hell
      Ill be gone when the morning comes
      When the night is over
      Like a bat out of hell Ill be gone gone gone
      Like a bat out of hell Ill be gone when the morning comes
      When the day is done
      And the sun goes down
      And the moonlights shining through
      Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
      Ill come crawling on back to you

      Im gonna hit the highway like a battering ram
      On a silver black phantom bike
      When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry
      And were all about to see the light
      Nothing ever grows in this rotten old hole
      And everything is stunted and lost
      And nothing really rocks
      And nothing really rolls
      And nothings ever worth the cost
      And I know that Im damned if I never get out
      And maybe Im damned if I do
      But with any other beat I got left in my heart
      You know Id rather be damned with you
      If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
      Dancing through the night with you
      If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
      Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
      If gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
      Dancing through the night
      Dancing through the night
      Dancing through the night with you

      Oh baby youre the only thing in this whole world
      Thats pure and good and right
      And wherever you are and wherever you go
      Theres always gonna be some light
      But I gotta get out
      I gotta break it out now
      Before the final crack of dawn
      So we gotta make the most of our one night together
      When its over you know
      Well both be so alone

      Like a bat out of hell
      Ill be gone when the morning comes
      When the night is over
      Like a bat out of hell Ill be gone
      Like a bat out of hell Ill be gone when the morning comes
      But when the day is done
      And the sun goes down
      And the moonlights shining through
      Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
      Ill come crawling on back to you
      Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
      Ill come crawling on back to you

      I can see myself
      Tearing up the road
      Faster than any other boy has ever gone
      And my skin is rough but my soul is ripe
      And no ones gonna stop me now
      I gotta make my escape
      But I cant stop thinking of you
      And I never see the sudden curve until its way too late
      I never see the sudden curve until its way too late

      Then Im dying on the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
      Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike
      And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
      And the last thing I see is my heart
      Still beating
      Breaking out of my body
      And flying away
      Like a bat out of hell

      How about This one by Sarah McLachlan…

      Angel

      Spend all your time waiting
      For that second chance
      For a break that would make it okay
      There’s always one reason
      To feel not good enough
      And it’s hard at the end of the day
      I need some distraction
      Oh beautiful release
      Memory seeps from my veins
      Let me be empty
      And weightless and maybe
      I’ll find some peace tonight

      In the arms of an angel
      Fly away from here
      From this dark cold hotel room
      And the endlessness that you fear
      You are pulled from the wreckage
      Of your silent reverie
      You’re in the arms of the angel
      May you find some comfort there

      So tired of the straight line
      And everywhere you turn
      There’s vultures and thieves at your back
      And the storm keeps on twisting
      You keep on building the lie
      That you make up for all that you lack
      It don’t make no difference
      Escaping one last time
      It’s easier to believe in this sweet madness oh
      This glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

      In the arms of an angel
      Fly away from here
      From this dark cold hotel room
      And the endlessness that you fear
      You are pulled from the wreckage
      Of your silent reverie
      You’re in the arms of the angel
      May you find some comfort there
      You’re in the arms of the angel
      May you find some comfort here

      Around the Sun – REM

      I want the sun to shine on me
      I want the truth to set me free
      I wish the followers would lead
      with a voice so strong it could knock me to my knees

      Hold on world ’cause you don’t know what’s coming
      Hold on world ’cause I’m not jumping off
      Hold onto this boy a little longer
      Take another trip around the sun

      If I jumped into the ocean to believe
      If I climbed a mountain would I have to reach?
      Do I even dare to speak?–to dream?–believe?
      Give me a voice so strong
      I can question what I have seen

      Hold on world ’cause you don’t know what’s coming
      Hold on world ’cause I’m not jumping off
      Hold onto this boy a little longer
      Take another trip around the sun

      Around the sun
      Around the sun
      Around the sun
      Let my dreams set me free.
      Believe. believe.
      Now now now now now now

      “Daylight” by Coldplay

      http://blip.fm/profile/trendkiler/blip/20311705/Coldplay-Daylight

      I chose this song because it reflects the surprise that Godric and Sookie feel, and ultimately the redemption of both humans and vampires. And it is the first sunrise Godric has witnessed in over 2000 years. Also, Sookie’s eyes have been opened to Eric and she sees him in a new light.

      Lyrics:
      Daylight
      To my surprise
      And my delight
      I saw sunrise
      I saw sunlight

      I am nothing
      In the dark
      And the clouds burst
      To show daylight

      Oooh, and the sun shine
      Yeah, on this heart of mine
      Oooh, and I realise
      Who couldn’t live without
      Oooh, come apart without it

      On a hilltop
      On a sky-rise
      Like a firstborn
      Child

      And at full tilt
      And in full flight
      Defeat darkness
      Breaking daylight

      Oooh, and the sun shine
      Yeah on this heart of mine
      Oooh, and I realise
      Who cannot live without
      Oooh, come apart without
      Daylight

      Slowly breaking through a daylight (x10)

      I like this song. It seems kind of fitting.It’s Helena by My Chemical Romance
      Long ago
      Just like the hearse you died to get in again
      We are so far from you

      Burning on just like a match you strike to incinerate
      The lives of everyone you know
      And what’s the worst you take (worst you take)
      from every heart you break (heart you break)
      And like the blade you stain (blade you stain)
      Well I’ve been holding on tonight

      What’s the worst that I can say?
      Things are better if I state
      So long and goodnight
      So long not goodnight

      Came a time
      When every star fall brought you to tears again
      We are the very hurt you sold
      And what’s the worst you take (worst you take)
      from every heart you break (heart you break)
      And like the blade you stain (blade you stain)
      Well I’ve been holding on tonight

      What’s the worst that I can say?
      Things are better if I state
      So long and goodnight
      So long not goodnight
      And if you carry on this way
      Things are better if I state
      So long and goodnight
      So long not goodnight

      Can you hear me?
      Are you near me?
      Can we pretend to leave and then
      We’ll meet again
      When both our cars collide?

      What’s the worst that I can say?
      Things are better if I state
      So long and goodnight
      So long not goodnight
      Well if you carry on this way
      Things are better if I stay
      So long and goodnight
      So long not goodnight

      I like this one. It short but sweet. And it seems like Godric was a bit naive in his decisions.Its by AFI 12/21

      This is what I brought you, this you can keep.
      This is what I brought, you may forget me.
      I promise to depart, just promise one thing.
      Kiss my eyes and lay me to sleep.

      This is what I brought you, this you can keep.
      This is what I brought, you may forget me.
      I promise you my heart just promise to sing.
      Kiss my eyes and lay me to sleep.

      Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa
      (Whoa, Whoa)
      Kiss my eyes and lay me to sleep.

      This is what I thought, I thought you’d need me.
      This is what I thought, so think me naive
      I’d promised you a heart, you’d promise to keep.
      Kiss my eyes and lay me to sleep.

      `Kiss my eyes and lay me to sleep.`

      My Immoral by Evanescence

      I’m so tired of being here, suppressed by all my childish fears
      And if you have to leave, I wish that you would just leave
      Your presence still lingers here and it won’t leave me alone

      These wounds won’t seem to heal, this pain is just too real
      There’s just too much that time cannot erase

      When you cried, I’d wipe away all of your tears
      When you’d scream, I’d fight away all of your fears
      And I held your hand through all of these years
      But you still have all of me

      You used to captivate me by your resonating light
      Now, I’m bound by the life you left behind
      Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
      Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

      These wounds won’t seem to heal, this pain is just too real
      There’s just too much that time cannot erase

      When you cried, I’d wipe away all of your tears
      When you’d scream, I’d fight away all of your fears
      And I held your hand through all of these years
      But you still have all of me

      I’ve tried so hard to tell myself that you’re gone
      But though you’re still with me, I’ve been alone all along

      When you cried, I’d wipe away all of your tears
      When you’d scream, I’d fight away all of your fears
      And I held your hand through all of these years
      But you still have all of me, me, me

      I picked this song not just because of the title but it makes me think of sookie sdesire to want to be with godric till the end and she was captivated by thier shared goal of peace and the beauty of his death but the pain it will cause others. And more so of what she thinkds godric is feeling alittle.

      I chose this song: Why so lonely – The 3rd and the mortal
      I chose this song because (for me) in that moment Godric will always be part of Sookie, not in a romantic way, but you can’t watch someone die, (someone who you are really grateful) without changing your way to see life.
      You can watch on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKKcPqE20bs
      And here’s the lyrics:
      Why so lonely
      Here you may rest
      Lay your head down at my chest

      Darkened days brighten
      No more to frighten
      Will you be mine
      Until the end of time

      Why so lonely
      I’ll give you shelter
      Comfort you, carry you
      through our lives

      Darkened days brighten
      No more to frighten
      Will you be mine
      Until the end of time

      Why so lonely, I’ll be the one
      you always can turn to
      I am yours

      For as long as you want to
      Lend me your heart
      I will shelter it
      Until the end of time

      Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley.
      This song is a beautiful narration of the scene.
      Godirck and Sookie are standing on the roof before the sun comes up and he askes her if she belives in God and she relpies yes, and then he asks what will happen to him and that he does not deserve forgiveness;

      “Well Your faith was strong but you needed proof
      You saw her bathing on the roof
      Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you..”

      Godrick says that even after 2000 years he is still surpised that at the end he is with a human. Godrick has reclaimed his humanity and wants to give up his immortality. His embracing the sun is a symbol of his redemption, or his Hallelujah.
      Well maybe there’s a God above
      But all I’ve ever learned from love
      Was how to shoot somebody who’d OUT DREW YA
      And it’s not a cry that you hear at night
      It’s not somebody who’s seen in the light
      It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

      Mazzy Star – Into Dust
      http://blip.fm/~c3jf5

      Beautifully haunting and feminine.

      Still falling
      Breathless and on again
      Inside today
      Beside me today
      Around broken in two
      till you eyes shed
      Into dust
      Like two strangers
      Turning into dust
      till my hand shook with the way I fear

      I could possibly be fading
      Or have something more to gain
      I could feel myself growing colder
      I could feel myself under your fate
      Under your fate

      It was you breathless and tall
      I could feel my eyes turning into dust
      And two strangers turning into dust
      Turning into dust

      Cold Desert by Kings of Leon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWkYu-hYTZs

      I’m on the corner waiting for a light to come on,
      That’s when I know that you’re alone.
      It’s cold in the desert, water never sees the ground,
      Special unspoken without sound.

      Told me you loved me, that I’d never die alone
      Hand over your heart let’s go home.
      Everyone noticed, everyone had seen the signs,
      I’ve always been known to cross lines.

      I never ever, cried when I was feeling down,
      I’ve always been scared of the sound.
      Jesus don’t love me, no-one ever carried my load,
      I’m too young to feel this old.

      Here’s to you, here’s to me, oh to us,
      Nobody knows
      Nobody sees
      Nobody but me.

      I find the following song by David Usher from my POV captures what happens as Godric passes on in front of Sookie.

      I Am The Weapon Lyrics
      Walking underwater
      Sinking in the sand
      Thought I saw the future
      Just out of reach

      Weighs me like an anchor
      Wraps around our feet
      Drags me to the city
      I can see

      You and I are helpless
      Falling like the leaves
      Blowing through the city

      I am the weapon

      Forget the world I promised
      Take only what you need
      Things that really matter
      You know that we’re helpless
      Just waiting on our knees
      And nothing really matters

      I am the weapon

      So we crumble into sand
      Takes the better part of me
      Leaves me waiting by the shore
      And I don’t care I don’t care
      I don’t need you, I won’t ever let go
      So we crumble ’til it’s gone

      You never said anything about leaving more then one song so ill leaving a 2nd because i really want the soap and found another perfect song

      Its Never To Late by 3 days grace

      This world will never be what I expected
      And if I don’t belong who would have guessed it
      I will not leave alone everything that I own
      To make you feel like it’s not too late, it’s never too late

      Even if I say it’ll be alright
      Still I hear you say you want to end your life
      Now and again we try to just stay alive
      Maybe we’ll turn it around ’cause it’s not too late
      It’s never too late

      No one will ever see this side reflected
      And if there’s something wrong who would have guessed it?
      And I have left alone everything that I own
      To make you feel like it’s not too late, it’s never too late

      Even if I say it’ll be alright
      Still I hear you say you want to end your life
      Now and again we try to just stay alive
      Maybe we’ll turn it around ’cause it’s not too late
      It’s never too late

      The world we knew won’t come back
      The time we’ve lost can’t get back
      The life we had won’t be ours again

      This world will never be what I expected
      And if I don’t belong

      Even if I say it’ll be alright
      Still I hear you say you want to end your life
      Now and again we try to just stay alive
      Maybe we’ll turn it around ’cause it’s not too late
      It’s never too late

      Maybe we’ll turn it around ’cause it’s not too late
      It’s never too late
      It’s not too late, it’s never too late

      This song is perfect because its a combination of sookie and Godrics thoughs> Godric is thinking that the worls is lost to him and he dosent belong and sookie (chorus) is humanity comferting him!

      I Grieve – Peter Gabriel is my choice. I think Sookie would be thinking of the display of grief she saw from Eric, combined with the sadness of Godric’s life come to an end.

      I Grieve – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwz5q8Oh2ug
      It was only one hour ago
      It was all so different then
      Theres nothing yet has really sunk in
      Looks like it always did
      This flesh and bone
      Its just the way that you would tied in
      Now theres no-one home

      I grieve for you
      You leave me
      so hard to move on
      Still loving whats gone
      They say life carries on
      Carries on and on and on and on

      The news that truly shocks is the empty empty page
      While the final rattle rocks its empty empty cage
      And I cant handle this

      I grieve for you
      You leave me
      Let it out and move on
      Missing whats gone
      They say life carries on
      They say life carries on and on and on

      Life carries on
      In the people I meet
      In everyone thats out on the street
      In all the dogs and cats
      In the flies and rats
      In the rot and the rust
      In the ashes and the dust
      Life carries on and on and on and on
      Life carries on and on and on

      Its just the car that we ride in
      A home we reside in
      The face that we hide in
      The way we are tied in
      And life carries on and on and on and on
      Life carries on and on and on

      Did I dream this belief?
      Or did I believe this dream?
      Now I can find relief
      I grieve

      i’ll go with Illusion by VNV Nation

      I know it’s hard to tell how mixed up you feel
      Hoping what you need is behind every door
      Each time you get hurt, I don’t want you to change
      Because everyone has hopes, you’re human after all
      The feeling sometimes, wishing you were someone else
      Feeling as though you never belong
      This feeling is not sadness, this feeling is not joy
      I truly understand. Please, don’t cry now

      Please don’t go, I want you to stay
      I’m begging you please, please don’t leave here
      I don’t want you to hate;
      For all the hurt that you feel,
      The world is just illusion, trying to change you

      Being like you are
      Well this is something else, who would comprehend?
      But some that do, lay claim
      Divine purpose blesses them
      That’s not what I believe, and it doesn’t matter anyway
      A part of your soul ties you to the next world
      Or maybe to the last, but I’m still not sure
      But what I do know, is to us the world is different
      As we are to the world but I guess you would know that

      Please don’t go, I want you to stay
      I’m begging you please, please don’t leave here
      I don’t want you to hate for all the hurt that you feel
      The world is just illusion trying to change you
      Please don’t go, I want you to stay
      I’m begging you please, oh please don’t leave here
      I don’t want you to hate;
      For all the hurt that you feel,
      The world is just illusion, always trying to change you

      Please don’t go, I want you to stay
      I’m begging you please, please don’t leave here
      I don’t want you to hate for all the hurt that you feel
      The world is just illusion trying to change you
      Please don’t go, I want you to stay
      I’m begging you please, oh please don’t leave here
      I don’t want you to hate;
      For all the hurt that you feel,
      The world is just illusion, always trying to change you

      ‘You Are The Moon’ – The Hush Sound

      I picked this song because I think Sookie would feel that Godric is a beautiful man with such strength and would want to let him know. However, she would understand his choice of moving on and meeting the sun, she would feel sadness but she would feel joy for him, as well.

      “Shadows all around you as you surface from the dark
      Emerging from the gentle grip of night’s unfolding arms
      Darkness, darkness everywhere, do you feel all alone?
      The subtle grace of gravity, the heavy weight of stone

      You don’t see what you possess, a beauty calm and clear
      It floods the sky and blurs the darkness like a chandelier
      All the light that you possess is skewed by lakes and seas
      The shattered surface, so imperfect, is all that you believe

      I will bring a mirror, so silver, so exact
      So precise and so pristine, a perfect pane of glass
      I will set the mirror up to face the blackened sky
      So you can see your beauty every morning that you rise”

      I choose the song Tears in heaven By Eric Clapton

      Lyrics:

      Would you know my name
      If I saw you in heaven
      Will it be the same
      If I saw you in heaven
      I must be strong, and carry on
      Cause I know I don’t belong
      Here in heaven

      Would you hold my hand
      If I saw you in heaven
      Would you help me stand
      If I saw you in heaven
      I’ll find my way, through night and day
      Cause I know I just can’t stay
      Here in heaven

      Time can bring you down
      Time can bend your knee
      Time can break your heart
      Have you begging please
      Begging please

      (instrumental)

      Beyond the door
      There’s peace I’m sure.
      And I know there’ll be no more…
      Tears in heaven

      Would you know my name
      If I saw you in heaven
      Will it be the same
      If I saw you in heaven
      I must be strong, and carry on
      Cause I know I don’t belong
      Here in heaven

      Cause I know I don’t belong
      Here in heaven

      😀 I love this song and I think it goes great especially since Godric & Sookie starts talking about heaven

      “Yesterday”- The Beatles
      or “help is round the corner”-coldplay
      Stuck here, in the middle of nowhere
      With a head ache, and a heavy heart
      Well nothing was going quite right here
      And I’m tired, I can’t play no part

      Oh come on, come on
      Oh what a state I’m in
      Oh come on, come on
      Why won’t it just sink in?

      Help is just around the corner, for us

      Oh my head won’t stop aching
      And I’m sat here, licking my wounds
      I’m shattered
      But it really doesn’t matter
      ‘Cause my rescue is going to be here soon

      Oh come on, come on
      What a state, I’m in
      Oh come on, come on
      Why won’t it just sink in?

      Help is just around the corner, for us
      Help is just around the corner, for us
      Help is just around the corner, for us

      In this moment ~ Into the light

      The explanation is in the lyrics

      In This Moment Into the Light Lyrics:
      Can anybody tell me why
      We’re lying here on the floor
      And neither of us can barely breathe at all
      The doctors saying hold on tight
      As we say our last goodbyes
      And this is, a moment that
      changes our whole lives

      And I still believe in the good
      And I still believe in the light
      And I wanna feel the sun
      I wanna free you tonight
      And I still believe in the good
      And I still believe in the light
      And I wanna feel the sun
      I wanna free you tonight

      I’m staring deep into your eyes
      They’re telling me the time has come
      And I know you’re ready to rise and sail home
      The room is filling up with light
      As we say our last goodnight
      I thank you for every second of your life

      And I still believe in the good
      And I still believe in the light
      And I wanna feel the sun
      I wanna free you tonight
      And I still believe in the good
      And I still believe in the light
      And I wanna feel the sun
      I wanna free you

      And I’m falling,
      Watching as you’re hurting
      I’m down here I’m on my knees
      How can I survive?
      And you turn to me and promise me you’re ready
      And tell me you’ll be waiting on the other side

      And I still believe in the good
      And I still believe in the light
      And I wanna feel the sun
      I wanna free you tonight
      And you showed me all the good
      And you lead me through the light
      And you gave me the sun
      It’s time to free you tonight

      Why is no one mentioning the song at the end of the show. I Will Rise Up by Lyle Lovette perfectly captured the shows ending. I think the music editior is a genius and hope to continuing hearing more music that is not only great, but not typically heard by mainstream america! Way to go guys!!!!! *yeah, I know its not an entry but definitely is my opinion*.

      (I have found out how)

      Mad World by Gary Jules. I can picture it being played as Godric meets the Sun..

      All around me are familiar faces
      Worn out places, worn out faces
      Bright and early for their daily races
      Going nowhere, going nowhere
      Their tears are filling up their glasses
      No expression, no expression
      Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
      No tomorrow, no tomorrow

      And I find it kinda funny
      I find it kinda sad
      The dreams in which I’m dying
      Are the best I’ve ever had
      I find it hard to tell you
      I find it hard to take
      When people run in circles
      It’s a very, very mad world mad world

      I’m sure that when Sookie is watching Godric she is thinking that this world is crazy and its a very sad world that we live in. This song also describes how Godric saw the world and how he didn’t want to live anymore.

      thats the video

      City Lights – By Elisa.

      Get back on the road
      Turn those headlights on
      You know it’s still dark
      And a long way to your home
      Come on don’t give up
      You’ve got to hold on
      You’ll know what to do if you’ll know what you want

      Go through these city lights
      You don’t recognize
      Cause you don’t belong here
      You don’t belong here
      But here you found his heart

      Fight for what you want
      You got to take care
      Look after your sisters your brothers
      It’s such a small world
      They keep saying
      Such a small world
      But it’s enough to feel lost
      And wander without love
      Think without a heart
      And survive without a soul

      Go through these city lights
      You don’t recognize
      Cause you don’t belong here
      You don’t belong here
      But here you found his heart
      Here you found his soul
      He gave you all his love
      You’ll never forgive yourself
      You’ll never forgive yourself
      If you let him go, If you let him go

      Sarah McLachlan’s “Fallen”

      Heaven bent to take my hand
      And lead me through the fire
      To the long-awaited answer
      To a long and painful fight
      Truth be told I tried my best
      But somewhere along the way
      I got caught up in all there was to offer
      But the cost was so much more than I could bear

      Though I’ve tried, I’ve fallen
      I have sunk so low
      I messed up
      Better I should know
      So don’t come round here and
      Tell me I told you so

      First verse and chorus

      im gonna have to go old school on this one and say I know this would be the best song, because I believe deep down Sookie knows Godric will go to heaven b/c he is a great person to sacrifice himself for others…… song: Say hello to Heaven artist: Temple of the Dog

    • TanairyMC 14:56 on August 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Simple & Clean by Utada Hikaru….That would be perfect for Sookie but this song is definitely for Eric as well because of the connection he and Godric have..or had

      • TanairyMC 15:30 on August 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think this is perfect for Sookie because this song talks about how even if you have a connection to someone it is best you let them go but still be there for that person….Sookie felt like Godric was a great person(vampire) but she knew why and how much he wanted to let go So she stood there to support him…And specifically the part in the song

        “Don’t get me wrong I love you
        But does that mean I have to meet your father?
        When we are older you’ll understand
        What I meant when I said “No,
        I don’t think life is quite that simple”’

        This part in the song pertains where Godric asks Sookie to watch over Eric…..She wants to for Godric but fears that no one can really get to close to Eric and even more so with Godric choosing to meet the sun.

        To sum it up, Godric made an impression on Sookie and no she see’s how things will never be the same now that Godric has perished.

        P.s: sorry for all the replies

        When you walk away
        You don’t hear me say please
        Oh baby, don’t go
        Simple and clean is the way that you’re making me feel tonight
        It’s hard to let it go

        You’re giving me too many things
        Lately you’re all I need
        You smiled at me and said,

        Don’t get me wrong I love you
        But does that mean I have to meet your father?
        When we are older you’ll understand
        What I meant when I said “No,

        It’s hard to let it go

        The daily things
        that keep us all busy
        all confusing me thats when u came to me and said,

        Wish i could prove i love you
        but does that mean i have to walk on water?
        When we are older you’ll understand
        It’s enough when i say so,
        And maybe somethings are that simple

        When you walk away
        You don’t hear me say please
        Oh baby, don’t go
        Simple and clean is the way that you’re making me feel tonight
        It’s hard to let it go

        Hold me
        Whatever lies beyond this morning
        Is a little later on
        Regardless of warnings the future doesn’t scare me at all
        Nothing’s like before

        When you walk away
        You don’t hear me say please

      I’m totally trying to win this mother, so I went with a swedish band, Kent, with a song sung in swedish (to fit in with Godric dying because he knows how to speak the lang.). I think it would sum up what Sookie is feeling, wondering if Godric is alright where ever he is, and if he still would stand by his choice

      Innan Allting Tar Slut – Before It All Ends (english lyrics) : By Kent

      Modern thoughts about each other
      and you’re not like anyone else
      Antique promises that we mix
      until we’ve both stopped breathing
      the air around us…

      Are you happy now ?
      Are you happy now ?
      Are you happy now ?
      Do we have time
      before it all ends ?

      Finally I’ve found the words
      and I find your hands
      under the table
      There’s still time for us to become something big
      Grow a few metres
      before the summer
      reaches October

      Are you happy now ?
      Are you happy now ?
      Are you happy now ?
      Do we have time
      before it all ends ?

      There are empty gunshells in the park
      Our feet are a metre
      above the ground
      I knew that
      You’d become strong then
      My hand in your hand
      when the coats
      turn after the wind

      Are you happy now ?
      Are you happy now ?
      Are you happy now ?
      Do we have time
      before it all ends ?

      Are you happy now ?
      Are you happy now ?
      Are you happy now ?
      Do we have time
      before it all ends ?

      “Golden” by Fall Out Boy.

      How cruel is the golden rule,
      When the lives we lived are only golden plated.
      And I knew that the lights of the city were too heavy for me,
      Though I carried carats for everyone to see.
      And I saw god cry in the reflection of my enemies.
      And all the lovers with no time for me.
      And all of the mothers raise their babies to stay away from me.

      Tongues on the sockets of electric dreams,
      Where the sewage of youth drowned the spark of my teens.
      And I knew that the lights of the city were too heavy for me,
      (Too heavy for me.)
      Though I carried carats for everyone to see.
      (Everyone to see.)
      And I saw god cry in the reflection of my enemies.
      And all the lovers with no time for me.
      And all of the mothers raise their babies to stay away from me,
      And pray they don’t grow up to be…

      I have two and I can’t decide between them so I’ll give you both.

      The first is Cold- A Different Kind of Pain

      “A Different Kind Of Pain”

      Before i let you go
      Give me just one more night to show you
      Just how i feel
      I lost all my control
      If it takes my whole damnned life i’ll
      Make this up to you

      Im kinda like the waves that roll their whole life
      Towards somewhere crashing it on the shore
      Thats blown in by the wind that carries the clouds
      To hide my wish on a fallen star

      A differnt kind of pain, is someone there to hold you
      Is someone there to take you away from me

      I tried to let you go
      I wish i could turn back time and show
      You just how i feel
      I needed you to know
      If it takes my whole damned life i’ll
      Make this up to you

      Before you let me go, i needed you to know

      The next one is Crossfade–Colors

      Colors lyrics

      Can you feel it crush you? Does it seem to bring the worst in you out?
      There’s no running away from these things that hold you down
      Do they complicate you because they make you feel like this?
      Of all the colors that you’ve shined this is surely not your best

      But you should know these colors that you’re shining are…

      [Chorus x2:]
      Surely not the best colors that you shine

      I know you feel alone, yeah, and no one else can figure you out
      But don’t you ever turn away from the ones that help you down?
      Well they’d love to save you. Don’t you know they love to see you smile?
      But these colors that you’ve shined are surely not your style

      [Chorus x2]

      I know you’re feeling like you’re lost
      But you should know these colors that you’re shinin are
      I know you’re feeling like you’re lost,
      You feel you’ve drifted way too far
      Did you know these colors that you’re shinin’ are

      [Chorus x2]

      Surely not the best..
      (I know you’re feeling like you’re lost)
      Colors that you shine..
      (but you should know these colors that you’re shining are)
      Surely not the best..
      (I know you’re feeling like you’re lost you feel you`ve drifted way too far)
      Did you know these colors that you’re shinin’ are..

      These songs make me feel the same way I felt when Godric died. I wanted Sookie to convince him to stay.

      Maps – When you leave

      When you leave, I ain’t coming,
      what you have, comes to nothing…

      These words repeat themselves throught the song.
      It’s a beautiful power ballad, expressing what death actually means. When we leave this world, we are all alone. Nobody with us. Nobody to guide us. What we had in our life means nothing. This chorus just repeats itself melancholicly throught the song, reminding us of what awaits us all at the end of this journey…

      Never Is A Long Time – Roxette

      This is a very sad goodbye song, that says that forever is a long time to be apart. Sookie is never going to meet Godric again, maybe only if she believes in afterlife, but even in this case then Eric is never going to meet Godric again since he is supposed to live forever.

      “Never Is A Long Time”

      You build it up and tear it down,
      there’s no reason to follow you.
      You left the song without a sound,
      you left the story I made for you.
      Softly angels bow and cry in the stillness of the night.

      Never is a long time – goodbye.
      No answers for the asking.
      It’s a long time – goodbye.
      No mercy for the aching.
      It’s a long time – oh I see no light on the forsaken.
      Never is a long time – goodbye.
      Let’s spend the night when this dream has come to an end.

      Sometimes you laugh,
      sometimes you cry, and yes,
      I’ve cried over you.
      You’ve left me blind in paradise.
      You’ve left me hungering for the touch of you.
      Snow white angels run and hide in the blackness of the night.

      Never is a long time – goodbye.
      No answers for the asking.
      It’s a long time – goodbye.
      No mercy for the aching.
      It’s a long time – oh I see no light on the forsaken.
      Never is a long time – goodbye.
      Let’s spend the night when this dream has come to an end.

      Never is a long time…
      Oh, never is a long time.

      ps. by the way, it’s a swedish band… 😉

      Dust in the Wind by – Kansas –

      I close my eyes
      Only for a moment, then the moment’s gone
      All my dreams
      Pass before my eyes, a curiosity
      Dust in the wind
      All they are is dust in the wind

      Same old song
      Just a drop of water in an endless sea
      All we do
      Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see
      Dust in the wind
      All we are is dust in the wind, ohh

      Now, don’t hang on
      Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
      It slips away
      And all your money won’t another minute buy
      Dust in the wind
      All we are is dust in the wind
      All we are is dust in the wind

      Dust in the wind
      Everything is dust in the wind
      Everything is dust in the wind
      The wind

      OK so it sounds bad at first but if you actually listen to the lyrics it fits Godrics mood and even a message to Eric.

      OK sounds bad at first until you listen or read the lyrics then you can see that it could mirror what Godric could have been feeling after all those centries and even had a message for Eric in it.

    Jenni Lou runs daydreaming, a multi-fandom site that features amazing wallpapers and images for various TV shows and movies.  Her collection of True Blood and Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries images is so extensive, she has them broken down not just by episode, but by book, and ships (for those of you not in the know, “ship” refers to the specific relationship a fan, or shipper, supports).

    I need to go back and watch this moment again (yes, again), but from what I recall, the final farewell between Eric and Godric is shot so you see mostly Eric’s reaction to his Maker’s decision.  I like to believe that this might be what Sookie saw as she climbed up the metal stairs.

    More Eric and Godric here.
