[Phoenix] Winter lovin'.
Okay, this is SO our Phoenix/Miles ANTHEM. It does not get any closer than this. It's almost scary. One line even says 'Like a phoenix you rise from the ashes', I mean, COME ON. I love Vienna Teng so much.

Eric's Song:Phoenix/Miles::Here We Go:Todd/Kurt

strange how you know inside me
I measure the time and I stand amazed
strange how I know inside you
my hand is outstretched toward the damp of the haze

and of course I forgive
I've seen how you live
like a phoenix you rise from the ashes
you pick up the pieces
and the ghosts in the attic
they never quite leave
and of course I forgive
you've seen how I live
I've got darkness and fears to appease
my voices and analogies
ambitions like ribbons
worn bright on my sleeve

strange how we know each other

strange how I fit into you
there's a distance erased with the greatest of ease
strange how you fit into me
a gentle warmth filling the deepest of needs

and with each passing day
the stories we say
draw us tighter into our addiction
confirm our convictions
that some kind of miracle
passed on our heads
and how I am sure
like never before
of my reasons for defying reason
embracing the seasons
we dance through the colors
both followed and led

strange how we fit each other

strange how certain the journey
time unfolds the petals for our eyes to see
strange how this journey's hurting
in ways we accept as part of fate's decree

so we just hold on fast
acknowledge the past
as lessons exquisitely crafted
painstakingly drafted
to carve us as instruments
that play the music of life
for we don't realize
our faith in the prize
unless it's been somehow elusive
how swiftly we choose it
the sacred simplicity
of you at my side

I have a song for Larry, Phoenix and Miles as kids.

"X Y and Zee" by Pop Will Eat Itself. I have NO IDEA why lyrically, but it make me laugh and think of them playing :)

I shall have to download that and see if it can be included in my wangst*emo-arama (wemo?) CD for PW/ME and general Phoenix and Miles.

I do have a few other songs that I use for inspiration when writing these two but I'm not sure how many are as literally appropriate as the one you chose, so much as appropriate to personal canon, if you see what I mean.

Magnificent Dreams by the Television Personalities being one. There is a Light That Never Goes Out by The Smiths being another. Angst for the win :)

Then there's Back To The Old House by The Smiths, for Phoenix, after Miles disappears from school.

Cool, thanks! I'll check those out too!

(There Is A Light with original Teh Gay video). I think this song makes me think of Phoenix in stalker mode actually on reflection :)

That's an interesting song. I think I want to listen to it a few more times, I'm not sure if I love it or not yet. :D

It's one of my fave Smiths songs. Their blend of angst, snark and self-aware humour is something unique and I love them for it. It's funny, I never owned a single Smiths album at the time and yet their music seems to be intertwined with so many memories of my life.

Anyway yeah, I dunno why, but I find their stuff in general a great inspiration for writing Phoenix especially.

Although the Paris fic does go by the working title of "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet Baby" so Miles is getting a Smiths reference at last :)
