Track 07: "Counting Stars" by One Republic

I actually really like this song, but that doesn't keep me from recognizing how ironic this particular association is. I guess this song is supposed to be about self-actualization or something; idk, it's the Top 40. Does it matter?

But if you had between 6pm and 1am to kill while waiting for a Greyhound in Canada, and only five songs to keep you company, you'd have ended up associating it with SPN, too. 9x22 had just aired and I hadn't seen it yet; but as I'm sure Dean can attest, it wasn't that hard to see how that was gonna go.

Below the cut, I've embedded the music, and then, in the absence of fanvid-making abilities, a lazily-but-earnestly composed series of lyrics/gifs. I thought that would best explain how this song has been forced to relate to SPN. :D

Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be.
But baby, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars

We'll be counting stars:

I feel the love

And I feel it burn

Down this river every turn
Hope is our four letter word

Make that money
Watch it burn

Old, but I'm not that old

Young, but I'm not that bold

And I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told

I feel something so right
By doing the wrong thing

And I feel something so wrong
By doing the right thing

I couldn't lie

couldn't lie

couldn't lie

Everything that kills me--

--makes me feel alive.

I'm sorry, Dean. You're my favorite. <3
