And on the other end of the spectrum -- HAPPY TVD POST!

So, I was going through the list of songs that have played in the last few episodes and came upon the one that played at the top of "The End of the Affair" when Damon popped up in Elena's bed: Christina Perri's "Distance." I decided to check out the lyrics, and the first few lines were lovely, so I rewatched the scene to see how much we could hear them. Turns out we could hear the entire opening lyrics, and then ... the music kinda faded into regular background noise shortly after Elena pulled away from Damon. And I was like WHOAH! Because they essentially used an uber-romantic song that is about denying one's love for someone even though it so totally, totally is there for JUST Damon in Elena's bed, and her curling into him. We know from past interviews, that they do look at the intent, tone of the song to portray the scene, and that THIS SONG with THESE LYRICS was used over an uber-sweet Damon/Elena moment and very, very specifically over JUST that section of the scene just filled me with squee.

Seriously, read these lyrics!

Christina Perri - Distance

The sun is filling up the room
And I can hear you dreaming
Do you feel the way I do right now?
I wish we would just give up
Cause the best part is falling
Call it anything but love

And I will make sure to keep my distance
Say "I love you" when you're not listening
How long can we keep this up, up, up?

Please don't stand so close to me
I'm having trouble breathing
I'm afraid of what you'll see right now
I give you everything I am
All my broken heartbeats
Until I know you understand

And I will make sure to keep my distance
Say "I love you" when you're not listening
How long can we keep this up, up, up?

And I keep waiting
For you to take me
You keep waiting
To say what we have

So I make sure to keep my distance
Say "I love you" when you're not listening
How long can we keep this up, up, up?

Make sure to keep my distance
Say "I love you" when you're not listening
How long til we call this love, love, love?

And here is the scene with the lyrics, and it does totally cut off right before Stefan's name comes up. Uh huh.
