Fanmix: ben wyatt's roller coaster year (Parks and Recreation, Leslie/Ben)

rollercoaster


Ben had a hell of a year. Just when he thought he'd found true happiness, Leslie dumped him for her political career and he had to suffer in silence while working with her. Finally, when all hope seemed lost, Leslie told him she wanted to be with him again and they kissed in the smallest park in Indiana, damn the consequences. To commemorate the ups and downs of a roller coaster year, Ben made a mix.


Roller Coaster Down: I'm Leslie Knope>The Treaty

imleslieknope

1. Mystery Jets – Hideaway

Running around, running around
Don't make a sound, don't wanna get found
I've been hiding behind the blinds
But in my mind I don't wanna be that kind of guy

2. White Lies – Bigger Than Us

And I feel like I'm breaking up
But I wanted to stay
Headlights on the hillside
Don't take me this way
I don't want you to hold me
I want you to pray
'Cause it's bigger than us

3. The National – Sorrow

Don't leave my hyper heart alone on the water
Cover me in rag and bone sympathy
'Cause I don't wanna get over you
I don't wanna get over you

4. Editors – An End Has a Start

You came on your own
That's how you'll leave
With hope in your hands
And air to breathe

5. Communist Daughter – Ghosts

Late December cold
I remember ghosts
Let me know, when they get to heaven
I’ll let go when God lets me forget her
Heaven my heart hold, it’s time I let it

6. Deas Vail – Shoreline

So you say I’m better off here
As dry as the shoreline in an ocean of fear
And so you say that I can’t be alive
Until there is nothing when we’re meeting eyes
Again
And day by day I wander these halls
And you’re casting a shadow onto every wall.
And all the way you ring in my ear
from the moment I knew you were leaving me here

7. Elvis Costello and the Attractions - I Want You

I want you
The truth can't hurt you it's just like the dark
It scares you witless
But in time you see things clear and stark
I want you
Go on and hurt me then we'll let it drop
I want you
I'm afraid I won't know where to stop
I want you
I'm not ashamed to say I cried for you
I want you

8. Starsailor – Tell Me It's Not Over

Thought I'd lost you once again
All that drink had brought some trouble to our name
Late at night I feel no shame
All my old war stories take me back again

Roller Coaster Up: Smallest Park>Halloween Surprise

Parks-and-Recreation-4x08-Smallest-Park-2463

9. The Church – Under the Milky Way

And it's something quite peculiar
Something shimmering and white
Leads you here, despite your destination
Under the milky way tonight

10. Röyksopp – Only This Moment

Only this (moment)
Holds us (together)
Close to (perfection)
Nothing else (out there)
Always (beside her)
Trusting my (senses)
Deep down inside I know love will survive

11. Cloud Cult – There's So Much Energy In Us

The mission's over now, and my breath is running out
Can't let go of it, can't let go of it
I didn't mean what I said, I didn't mean what I said
I love you more than this. I love you more than this
Then lights they fill the air, or were they always there?
I finally see it. I finally see it
And I heard the captain say, I heard the captain say,
"You're always close to it, so very close to it."
There's so much energy in us

12. Wilco - I'm the Man Who Loves You

All I can see is black and white
and white and pink with blades of blue
that lay between the words I think
on a page I was meaning to send her
You I couldn't tell if it bring my heart
the way I wanted when I started
writing this letter to you

If I could you know I would
just hold your hand and you'd understand
I'm the man who loves you

13. Of Monsters and Men – King and Lionheart

And in the winter night sky ships are sailing,
Looking down on these bright blue city lights
And they won't wait, and they won't wait, and they won't wait
We're here to stay, we're here to stay, we're here to stay

14. Young Galaxy – We Have Everything

I wept when we parted
And wept when we united
In poverty, my love, we have everything
I wept when we parted
And wept when we united
In poverty, my love, we have everything

15 General Public - Tenderness

I don't know when to start or when to stop
My luck's like a button, I can't stop pushing it
My head feels light but I'm still in the dark


16. Cocteau Twins – I Wear Your Ring
