PostSubject: Safe and Sound   Tue Jan 03, 2012 4:25 pm

Well... I've never done a songfic before, and I decided to try it out, because I like this song so much Smile The song, Safe and Sound, is Taylor Swift's new song for The Hunger Games movie. It definitely needs work, but I didn't feel like doing it xP

I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, I'll never let you go

I try to comfort her in her tears… but how can I, when I am so broken? This war has taken all of us. I embrace her as she cries, feeling her pain as if it was my own. It is my own. I am as much a victim as she is. I am only better at hiding my pain.
When all those shadows almost killed your light
She is not the young girl I was given the task of training so many years ago. She has changed. Her eyes are sadder, more desperate. Hopeless. She was only a child. Now… any light she once had is dead. This must be the price of war. This is what all of us must pay for freedom. It is unavoidable.
I remember you said, don't leave me here alone
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight

There is nothing I can do for her. There is nothing I can do for myself. I will not survive the next hour. But it does not matter. The man I once was is gone. The young girl I once knew her to be is gone. My soul is an empty now. I feel love, but it comes with pain. The pain of remembering so many loved ones fallen. Obi-Wan… Padme… my apprentice is the only one I have left. Now I’m losing her, too.
I’m dying. She sees it. She feels it. I whisper to her softly as the tears drip from her scarred eyes,
“Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound.”

I know my words are hollow, but both of us find some comfort in them. It is as if saying this will mend our broken souls.
But there is no healing this kind of pain.
Don't you dare look out your window
Darling, Everything's on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on

This war has consumed us. We are engulfed in this fire. It burns us… the pain is unbearable. We have been reduced to ashes, only waiting to be swept away with the wind. There is no escape. We are trapped, playing everything in our minds endlessly.
Everyone dies someday. Now it is my turn. I cannot think of a better way to die then to give up my life for her, the single light that kept me going all those long years.
She grasps my hand, and I hold hers one last time.
“Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound.
Hold onto this lullaby, Ahsoka
Even when the music's gone
Gone.”
