Down We Go- an Anakin/Padme fanmix

Warning: not especially light and fluffy. More ROTS than AOTC. ;)

INTRODUCTION: Across the Stars -composed by John Williams


1. The Closest Thing To Crazy (Katie Melua)

[Padme before the wedding]

How can I have got in so deep?
Why did I fall in love with you?

This is the closest thing to crazy I have ever been
Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen,
This is the nearest thing to crazy I have ever known,
I was never crazy on my own:
And now I know that there’s a link between the two,
Being close to craziness and being close to you.


2. City Of Blinding Lights (U2)

Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

The more you know the less you feel
Some pray for others steal
Blessings are not just for the ones who kneel

ANAKIN: You are so beautiful!

PADME: It’s only because I’m so in love.

ANAKIN: No, it’s because I’m so in love with you.

PADME: So love has blinded you?

ANAKIN: Well, that’s not exactly what I meant.

PADME: But it’s probably true!


PADME: Anakin, how long is it going to take for us to be honest with each other?

ANAKIN: It was a dream.


ANAKIN: Like the ones I used to have about my mother just before she died.


ANAKIN: It was about you.

3. How Does It Feel (The Zutons)

How can i move the ground is so loose
And the sun wants to peel off my skin
And how can i laugh when my mouth is held back
And i’m struggling now just to grin

Cos everyone’s hiding from the truth
and they’re just lying to themselves
How do you expect me to deal
with this when i can’t even deal with myself?


4. Harder To Breathe (Maroon 5)

And like a little girl cries in the face of a monster that lives in her dreams
Is there anyone out there cause it’s getting harder and harder to breathe
Is there anyone out there cause it’s getting harder and harder to breathe
Is there anyone out there cause it’s getting harder and harder to breathe

PALPATINE: He became so powerful . . . the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. (smiles) Plagueis never saw it coming. It’s ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.

ANAKIN: Is it possible to learn this power?


5. Ring of Fire (Johnny Cash)

Love is a burning thing
and it makes a firey ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell in to a ring of fire…

I fell in to a burning ring of fire
I went down,down,down
and the flames went higher.
And it burns, burns, burns
the ring of fire
the ring of fire.

PADME: I don’t believe what I’m hearing…Obi-Wan was right. You’ve changed.

ANAKIN: I don’t want to hear any more about Obi-Wan. The Jedi turned against me. Don’t you turn against me.

PADME: I don’t know you anymore. Anakin, you’re breaking my heart. I’ll never stop loving you, but you are going down a path I
can’t follow.

ANAKIN: Because of Obi-Wan?

PADME: Because of what you’ve done…what you plan to do. Stop, stop now. Come back! I love you.

[Anakin sees Obi-Wan]



6. Angel, Angel, Down We Go Together (Morrissey)

Angel, Angel
Don’t take your life tonight

ANAKIN: You will not take her from me!

OBI-WAN: Your anger and your lust for power have already done that.

But I love you more than life
I love you more than life


7. My Last Breath (Evanescence)

Closing your eyes to disappear
You pray your dreams will leave you here
But still you wake and know the truth
No one’s there

OBI-WAN: You have twins, Padme They need you. Hang on.

PADME: I can’t…

OBI-WAN: Save your energy.

PADME: Obi-Wan…there…is good in him. I know there is…still…

Say goodnight
Don’t be afraid
Calling me, calling me
As you fade to black

Holding my last breath
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light
It ends here tonight


DARTH VADER: Where is Padme?

DARTH SIDIOUS: I’m afraid she died…it seems in your anger, you killed her.

8. Forgotten (Linkin Park)

In the memory you’ll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up


9. Everything’s Not Lost (Coldplay)

When I counted up my demons.
So there was one for every day.
with the good ones on my shoulders,
I drove the other ones away.

So if you ever feel neglected,
If you think that all is lost,
I’ll be counting up my demons, yeah,
Hoping everything’s not lost.
