Title –  Sweep the Ashes, Let the Silence Find Us
Creator – smells_corrupt

I’ll fic later, but in the meantime have some eclectic Spuffy songs (Also, bear with me, I’ve never used DW before, so there may be some issues.)!

1. Liar- Dragonette
You could feel it too
Don’t hide – You liar!
Some kind of thunder inside
Don’t speak, don’t breathe
Don’t touch the fire
It’s gonna burn us alive

I know you could feel it too
I saw you – Liar!
Standing off, run away
One look, one touch
We won’t survive it
It’s gonna burn us alive

***Both, S4 (specifically Superstar)***

2. Sex Bandaid- Antje Duvekot
Open the floodgates
Throw a sex bandaid on my open wounds
Kiss me, I will swallow my pride
I will swallow my pride

When you come down
I will meet you out on the burning fields
For another damn spin on your merry-go-round…
Oh, you make me vincible
How am I supposed to fight back

***Buffy S6***

3. Light as the Breeze- Leonard Cohen
O baby I waited
so long for your kiss
for something to happen,
oh something like this…

And I’m sick of pretending
I’m broken from bending
I’ve lived too long on my knees.

Then she dances so graceful
and your heart’s hard and hateful
and she’s naked
but that’s just a tease.
And you turn in disgust
from your hatred and from your love
and comes to you
light as the breeze.

***Spike S6***

4. I love to hurt (You love to be Hurt)- Primal Scream
I love to hurt, you love to be hurt
Ain’t no glory, glory in love

***Both S6***

5. I Like You so Much Better When You’re Naked- Ida Maria
I like you so much better when you’re naked
I like me so much better when you’re naked

***Buffy S6***

6. Closer – Nine Inch Nails
I want to fuck you like an animal
I want to feel you from the inside
I want to fuck you like an animal
My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to god

***Both S6. I usually hear it as Spike in the first verse and Buffy in the second.***

7. Spanish Sahara- Foals
Now the waves they drag you down
Carry you to broken ground
Though I find you in the sand
Wipe you clean with dirty hands

So god damn this boiling space
Spanish sahara the place that you´d wanna
Leave the horror here
Forget the horror here forget the horror here
Leave it all down here
It’s future rust and it´s future dust
I’m the fury in your head
I’m the fury in your bed
I’m the ghost in the back of your head

***Spike S6***

8. Birds of a Feather- The Civil Wars
She’s the sea I’m sinkin’ in
He’s the ink under my skin
Sometimes I cain’t tell where I am
Where I leave off and he begins

But who could do without you?
And who could do without you?

***Both, all seasons***

9. I’ll take you on- Howie Day
You said it yourself
You said I’m not ready
I’m tellin’ myself
But it’s not sinking in
Maybe I’m new at this
Or is it just your reaction
Be my illusion and I’ll
Be your distraction
I’ll take you on

***Spike S6***

10. I’ll change for you- Roseanne Cash
But change for you. (ad’ all the rules that were lies.)
I’ll change for you. (I sit and watch while they burn.)
I’ll change for you.
I’ll be all that you need.

***Both, later seasons***

11. Little Bit- Lykke Li
Hands down
I’m too proud, for love
But with eyes shut
It’s you I’m thinking of
But how we move from A to B it can’t be up to me
Cause I don’t know
Eye to eye
Thigh to Thigh
I let go

I think I’m a little bit
Little bit

A little bit in love with you

***Buffy S7***

12. I’m your man- Leonard Cohen
If you want a lover
I’ll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I’ll wear a mask for you
If you want a partner
Take my hand
Or if you want to strike me down in anger
Here I stand
I’m your man

***Spike S5-7***

13. Make this go on forever- Snow Patrol

The last girl and the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
The weight of water, the way you told me to look past everything I had ever learned
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

***Spike AtS S5. I hear this song as Spike thinking about Buffy while he’s in LA.***

14. She’s Got You High- Mumm-Ra
She’s got you high and you don’t even know yet
She’s got you high and you don’t even know yet
It’s the search for the time before it leaves without you
Have you lost your mind or has she taken all of yours too?

***Spike pre- Out of my Mind***

15. Hang You from the heavens- The Dead Weather
I never know what I’m gonna do
I say I’m leaving but it ain’t true
I got a lot I could do to you
Nothing you can do to stop this

I wanna grab you by the hair
I wanna grab you by the hair
I wanna grab you by the hair
And hang you up from the heavens

***Buffy, S4/ both of them, all seasons***

16. Sour Cherry- The Kills
Shout when you wanna get off the ride
‘Cause you crossed my mind, you crossed my mind
Made my blood thump 7-8-9
Make my heart beat double time

***Buffy, early S6***

17. On and On- Longpigs

All the songs that I’ve sung you
More often than you Know
You’re the love that I’ve clung to
More often than I’ve let it show.
And I wish you would leave me
And I wish you would go
And I wish you didn’t need me
And I wish I didn’t love you so.

***Both, S7***

18. Reach Down- Scarlet Haze
I guess I gotta reach down under the covers and do things like no one other you’re the thought that I cannot live without

You make me wanna reach down between my legs and do those things that make me be for mercy bustin at the thought of your mouth

You make me wanna reach down

***Buffy, S7. She wants him, but she’s afraid to take him.***

19. Swans- Unkle Bob
by my side you’ll never be
cause I’m fake at the seams
lost in my dreams
and I want you to know
that I cant let you go

***Both, early S7***

20. Don’t Worry About Me- Joey Ramone
When I saw you I knew that I wanted ya
But you’re the kinda girl that you just can’t get through to
Standin’ by the corner in a mini skirt
You’re the kinda girl that ya just can’t forget

***Spike S2/S6***

21. Dance Me to the End of Love- The Civil Wars
Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love

***Both, S6-post series***

22. How We Operate- Gomez
When we collide let’s see what gets left over…
The way that we’ve been speaking now
I swear that we’d be friends, I swear
‘Cos all these little deals go down with
Little consequences, we share, we share

***Both S4/5***

23. Edge of Desire-John Mayer
don’t say a word
just come over and lie here with me
cause I’m just about to set fire to everything I see

I want you so bad I’ll go back on the things I believe
there I just said it
I’m scared you’ll forget about me

***Spike S5, Buffy S6, Both S7***

24. You and Me of the 10,000 Wars- The indigo Girls
You and me of the 10,000 wars
Dividing life into factions of pleasures and chores
A bed to be made and a bed to lie in
A hand in the darker side
And our sights set on Zion…
The heart and the mind on a parallel course
Never the two shall meet…
After the battle and we’re still around
Everything once up in the air has settled down
Sweep the ashes, let the silence find us
The moment of peace is worth every war behind us

***Both, late seasons***

25. Honey and the Moon- Joseph Arthur
We’re made out of blood and rust
looking for someone to trust
a fight
I think that you came too soon
you’re the honey and the moon
that lights
up my night

***Bonus track, because it’s where the title of my forthcoming fic, comes from.***
