MURDERER - Wintersleep
are we the lovers in July?
and then the lightning comes
oh, and it don't come back
you're gonna want it all back
you're gonna want it all
are you a violent man?
throwing the witches on the fire
they're gonna cut your neck

no one knows what it's like
to be the bad man, to be the sad man
behind blue eyes
no one knows what it's like to be hated
to be fated to telling only lies
but my dreams they aren't as empty
as my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
my love is vengeance that's never free
no one knows what it's like
to feel these feelings like I do
and I blame you
no one bites back as hard on their anger
none of my pain and woe can show through

I have no time for fear
or people in my ear
head down and running so fast
try not to dwell on the past
I’m fighting through this pain
and things I cannot change
running right into the flame
rather than running away

I AM NOT A ROBOT (Starsmith's 24 Carat Remix) - Marina and the Diamonds
you've been acting awful tough lately
smoking a lot of cigarettes lately
but inside, you're just a little baby
it's okay to say you've got a weak spot
you don't always have to be on top
better to be hated than love, love, loved for what you're not
you're vulnerable, you're vulnerable
you are not a robot
you're lovable, so lovable
but you're just troubled

you were a kindness when I was a stranger
and I wouldn't ask for what I didn't need
everything's weird and we're always in danger
why would you shatter somebody like me
it doesn't work that way
wanting not to want you won't make it so
it doesn't work that way
don't leave me here alone

LITTLE LION MAN - Mumford & Sons
weep for yourself, my man,
you'll never be what is in your heart
weep, little lion man,
you're not as brave as you were at the start
rate yourself and rake yourself
take all the courage you have left
wasted on fixing all the problems
that you made in your own head
but it was not your fault but mine
and it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
didn't I, my dear?

the scars of your love remind me of us
they keep me thinking that we almost had it all
the scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can't help feeling
we could have had it all


NO LIGHT, NO LIGHT - Florence and the Machine
you want a revelation,
you wanna get it right
but it's a conversation
I just can't have tonight
you want a revelation
some kind of resolution
you want a revelation
no light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
a revelation in the light of day,
you can't choose what stays and what fades away
and I'd do anything to make you stay
no light, no light
no light
tell me what you want me to say

and if I only could make a deal with God
and get him to swap our places
be running up that road
be running up that hill
be running up that building
if I only could, oh...
you don't want to hurt me
but see how deep the bullet lies
unaware that I'm tearing you asunder
there is thunder in our hearts, baby
so much hate for the ones we love
tell me, we both matter, don't we?

all I ever wanted
was to be at your service
but now I'm alone
cause you were here and you're gone
and all I ever wanted
was to feel I had a purpose
but now that's all gone

people are puppets held together with string
there's a beautiful sadness that runs through him
as he asked me to pray to the God he doesn't believe in
time and again boys are raised to be men
impatient they start, fearful they end
but here was a man mourning tomorrow
he drank, but finally drowned in his sorrow
he could not break surface tension
he looked in the wrong place for redemption

DON'T WAKE ME UP - The Hush Sound
don't wake me up
I am still dreaming
the story's undone
unravel at the seams
don't wake me up
death is misleading
and when I fall asleep
sleep with your ghost

I have yet to face the inevitability of reading the Civil War arc. I'll get there. Meanwhile, I'm going to check out this mix. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much for feeding my new found obsession with Tony ~~~

Haha, Tony Stark is a probably unhealthy perfectly legitimate obsession, I'm definitely in the same boat as you right now. ♥

This is the first fanmix I've downloaded for this pairing, and when Behind Blue Eyes started, I had to just stop for a minute and listen. Nothing could fit Civil War!Tony better. Thank you for this.

Great fanmix! Ijust heard the whole thingin one go and it's awesome howit captures the atmosphereand how the songs fit together as a whole CD and not a random play list. Even made me like songs I usually don't go for. (*cough*Placebo's Running up that hill*cough* because I lost my heart to the Within Temptation cover)
Also I'm impressed you made the mix without recycling any of the songs from previous Civil War fanmixes, (I recently found a mix made up just from that and while I like the music I don't think it made a good fanmix)

Wow, thanks so much! ♥ I really appreciate you taking the time to comment on the mix itself. :3

Using songs from other Civil War mixes was something I was worried about, since I've only downloaded one or two so I couldn't remember what's been used a lot. But I'm glad to hear I managed to mostly avoid that, aha.

(Hm, I don't think I've heard the Within Temptation cover. /googles)

Perfect little mix! Civil War is just one of the best series I've ever read and this mix just captures Tony's emotions from it so well! Thanks for putting this together!
