Kept My Heart Locked Up: A Fanmix for Jorougumo & Yaobikuni

TITLE: Kept My Heart Locked Up
SUBJECT: xxxHOLiC; Jorougumo/Yaobikuni
NOTES: So I'm kind of in love with this pairing forever. Naturally, I had to make an FST. It does deal with a lot of headcanon, considering the pairing is relatively minor, but I hope you enjoy it regardless!

01. Elephants by Rachel Yamagata
(Yaobikuni and her past relationships)
"So for those of you falling in love,
Keep it kind, keep it good, keep it right.
Throw yourself in the midst of danger,
But keep one eye open at night."

02. Centuries by Headlights
(Yaobikuni → Jorougumo)
"Everybody knows to do precisely as they're told
We cannot cope with growing old
Sleepless days and sleepless nights
Broken teeth and broken eyes
We all read between the lines
We'll all die someday."

03. From the Sea by Eskimo Joe
"Hello, hello, oh hello.
The world repeats itself somehow.
She knows, she knows, oh she knows
The world repeats itself somehow.
Only just beginning to know,
She's only just beginning to know,
She's only just beginning to know now."

04. Hang Me Up to Dry by Cold War Kids
"Now hang me up to dry.
You wrung me out too, too, too many times.
Now hang me up to dry.
I'm pearly like the whites wh-whites of your eyes."

05. Locked Up by Ingrid Michaelson
(Jorougumo → Yaobikuni)
"Like an angry apple tree
I throw my apples if you get to close to me.
But if I look to my right
Will I see the one I fight for?
If I look to my right or if I turn to my left
Will I see that I've kept my heart locked up?
Locked up so tight.

Love, love, love, love is everywhere.
But not a drop for me to drink.
Tie me up and bind my feet.
Drop me in and watch me sink."

06. A Mistake by Fiona Apple
(Jorougumo → Yaobikuni)
"I'm gonna make a mistake.
I'm gonna do it on purpose.
I'm gonna waste my time.
'Cause I'm full as a tick
And I'm scratching at the surface.
And what I find is mine.
And when the day is done, and I look back
And the fact is I had fun, fumbling around.
All the advice I shunned, and I ran
Where they told me not to run, but I sure
Had fun, so
I'm gonna fuck it up again."

07. Breaking the Girl by Anna Nalick
(Jorougumo → Yaobikuni and her past relations)
"Feeling so good that day.
A feeling of love that day.
Twisting and turning
Your feelings are burning
You're breaking the girl.
She meant you no harm
Think you're so clever
But now you must sever
You're breaking the girl.
He loves no one else."

08. Please Sister by The Cardigans
(Yaobikuni → Jorougumo)
"Please sister, help me come on do what you should.
Please give me something I’m not doing so good.
I’m gone, done wrong is there nothing you can say.
Please sister help me,
Can you make me feel okay?

So if it’s true, that love will never die
Then why do the lovers work so hard
To stay alive?"

09. Recessional by Vienna Teng
(Jorougumo → Yaobikuni)
"Maybe it means nothing, maybe it means nothing,
Maybe it means nothing, but I'm afraid to move.

And the words: they're everything and nothing.
I want to search for her in the offhand remarks.
Who are you, taking coffee, no sugar?
Who are you, echoing street signs?
Who are you, the stranger in the shell of a lover,
Dark curtains drawn by the passage of time?"

10. Where Did You Go? by Full Devil Jacket
(Yaobikuni → Jorougumo)
"Where did you go?
I waited for you, in a special place."

11. Between the Lines by Sara Bareilles
(Yaobikuni → her past relationships and Jorougumo)
"Leave unsaid unspoken
Eyes wide shut unopened
You and me
Always be
You and me
Always between the lines."

12. Bones by Charlotte Martin
(Yaobikuni → Jorougumo)
"Say it like you mean
Mean it like you said it to me
Now it's out of his hands
You cant tear us apart
Because there's nothing to mend
You know well
You know well
You know well"

13. Parentheses by The Blow
"And when you're holding me
We make a pair of parentheses.
There's plenty space to encase
Whatever weird way my mind goes
I know I'll be safe in these arms."

14. You Are the One by Shiny Toy Guns
(Jorougumo → Yaobikuni)
"You are the one
You'll never be alone again
You're more than in my head - you're more."

15. Time is All Around by Regina Spektor
"Leaves become most beautiful
When they're about to die
When they're about to fall from trees
When they're about to dry up"
