She Learned- a Rose/Doctor fanmix

Thought I’d better post this before the chaos of tonight. ;) Anyway, here we have a Rose/Doctor fanmix with the focus mostly on Rose, although there’s a couple of Doctor songs in there too. It’s not exactly light and fluffy, I have to warn you- it’s for those, like me, who actually like the dark, screwed up, hubris-y side of their relationship. ;)

Been working on it for several weeks, am quite pleased with some of the songs. (Especially -‘Don’t Think You’re The First’ – the most perfect song for School Reunion I’ve ever seen). Mild spoilers/speculation for Doomsday ahead. :)

Enjoy, y’all. :D


BREAKAWAY – Kelly Clarkson

Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I’d just stare out my window
Dreamin’ of what could be
And if I’d end up happy
I would pray

Trying hard to reach out
But when I tried to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I prayed I could breakaway

I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes till I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love

[Thanks. /
For what? /

TIME TO FLY – The Divine Comedy

Tonight we fly
Over the mountains, the beach and the sea
Over the friends that we’ve known,
And those that we now know
And those whom we’ve yet to meet.
And when we die
Oh, will we be that disappointed or sad?
If heaven doesn’t exist,
What will we have missed?
This life is the best we’ve ever had


To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And you’ll think love is to pray
But I’m sorry I don’t pray that way

[I’m a Time Lord. I’m the last of the Time Lords. They’re all gone.]

I love you though you hurt me so


I want a trip inside your head
Spend the day there
To see the things you haven’t said
And see what you might see

[What the hell are you turning into?]

I am yours and you are mine
Love makes no sense of space and time/will disppear

YOUR DADDY’S CAR – The Divine Comedy

We took your daddy’s car
And drove it to the sea

[No, I get it! For once, you’re not the most important man in my life!]

Can you feel the sadness in our love?
Well, it’s the only kind we’re worthy of
Can you feel the madness in our hearts
As the key turns and the engine starts?
Can you feel
The engine

[I know how sad you are. You’ll be back in a minute. Or you’ll hang around outside the TARDIS waiting for me. And I’ll make you wait a long time!]

12 REASONS WHY – My Life Story

[one] she prefers the night to day

[four] the way she puts her fingers in her mouth

[five] running just in time to miss our train

[six] the old park benches where we carved our names

BAD DAYS – Space

it’s lucky for me you’re stronger than superman
and when I need you most
you’ll turn into Sherlock Holmes and save the day,
save the day, save the day, save the day.

Who needs Batman? Jason and the Argonaughts?
I’ve got you what more could i ask for?

When I’m feeling lost and outnumbered by 100 to one
and my nerves have gone and all I want to do is run for cover
you appear from nowhere like a genie with a magic lamp
my three wishes all in one.
Take me on your magic carpet and save the day
save the day, save the day, save the day.


It’s my own design
It’s my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world.

There’s a room where the light won’t find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I’ll be right behind you.
So glad we’ve almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world.

[I don’t know what you are, the two of you, or where you’re from, but I know that you consort with stars – and magic – and think it fun. But your world is steeped in terror and blasphemy and death and I will not allow it!]

TAKING OVER ME – Evanescence

I believe in you
I’ll give up everything just to find you
I have to be with you
To live, to breathe, you’re taking over me

Have you forgotten all I know and all we had
You saw me mourning my love for you
And touched my hand
I knew you loved me then

I look in the mirror and see your face
If I look deep enough
So many things inside that are just like you are taking over

[You will never see her again, your own mother! /
I made my choice a long time ago and I’m never gonna leave you…]

DON’T FEAR THE REAPER – Blue Oyster Cult

Seasons don’t fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain
We can be like they are
Come on, baby
Don’t fear the reaper
Baby, take my hand
Don’t fear the reaper
We’ll be able to fly
Don’t fear the reaper
Baby, I’m your man

[Fires are burning 10 million miles wide. I could fly the TARDIS right into the heart of it then ride the shock wave all the way out – hurtle right across the sky and end up anywhere. Your choice.]

Saying don’t be afraid
Come on, baby
And she had no fear
And she ran to him
Then they started to fly
They looked backward and said goodbye
She had become like they are
She had taken his hand
She had become like they are
Come on, baby
Don’t fear the reaper


Don’t think you’re the first, in the whole universe
To follow your heart or gaze at the stars
To stare at the night through the clear daylight
Don’t think you’re the first, in the whole universe
To feel sorrow or shame as you walk in the rain

Do I love you? Yes I love you
What I wouldn’t tell you

Don’t think you’re the last, to be tied to the mast
While you watch from afar as your world falls apart
You hang on for help as the rest help themselves
Don’t think you’re the last, to be tied to the past
While your future’s controlled by the presence untold

[How many of us have there been, travelling with you? /
Does it matter? /
Yeah, it does, if I’m just the latest in a long line. /
As opposed to what?]


There ain’t no space and time
To keep our love alive

[You can spend the rest of your life with me. But I can’t spend the rest of mine with you. ]

Oh, can you just tell me
It’s all right (It’s all right)
Let me sleep tonight
Oh, can you comfort me
Tonight (It’s all right)
Make it all seem fine

YOU’RE A GOD – Vertical Horizon

Though I’ve been unable,
To put you down,
I’m still learnin’ things I ought to know by now.

‘Cause you’re a god,
And I am not,
And I just thought that you would know,
You’re a god,
And I am not,

And I just thought I’d let you go.


Every silver lining trails a cloud
We gourged the fruit of passion down
It went straight to our head
You turned away but I can face it

I know that it’s all better now
And I know that we’re all through
But you can’t uneat the apple now
But I want to say
Thank you
for leading me yeah yeah yeah
Into temptation

I know that its all better now
And I know that we’re all through
I know you can’t uneat the apple now
But I want to say
Thank you
For tempting me yeah yeah yeah

For leading me yeah yeah yeah

I still need you
