Joshua

Wind Beneath My Wings

This song is, of course, more from Colin’s point of view and about Joshua. It comes slowly and not without huge firestorms of pain and bitter regret. But eventually Colin does come to realize that Joshua is his strength, or as he comes to call him, his oak. Colin’s always been the star. The alpha male. The big, strong, Irish cop who takes care of everyone else. But Joshua with his calm, steady presence has become the wind beneath his wings.

Ohhhh, oh, oh, oh, ohhh.
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
To never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that’s your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you’re my hero,
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
But I’ve got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you’re my hero?
You’re everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.

Did I ever tell you you’re my hero?
You’re everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings,
’cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
So high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
Thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.


David:

Bound To You – Christina Aguilera

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5RAATO3rTE

As David struggles against the many fears which haunt him the one truth he can’t escape is that he is bound, heart and soul, to the blue-eyed angel who stole his heart. Again and again David is forced to face the same fears he has battled since childhood. Their relationship teeters on the brink of destruction before David finally realizes that he is much more bound to Nate than he is to any of the dark forces which have always haunted him. Finally he know that he could lose everything else in his life and be happy as long as Nate was by his side.

 

Sweet love, sweet love

Trapped in your love

I’ve opened up, unsure I can trust

My heart and I were buried in dust

Free me, free us

You’re all I need when I’m holding you tight

If you walk away I will suffer tonight

I found a man I can trust

And boy, I believe in us

I am terrified to love for the first time

Can’t you see that I’m bound in chains?

I finally found my way

I am bound to you

I am bound to you

So much, so young, I’ve faced on my own

Walls I built up became my home

I’m strong and I’m sure there’s a fire in us

Sweet love, so pure

I catch my breath we’re just one beating heart

And I brace myself, please don’t tear this apart

I found a man I can trust

And boy, I believe in us

I am terrified to love for the first time

Can’t you see that I’m bound in chains?

I finally found my way

I am bound to you

I am bound to

Suddenly the moment’s here

I embrace my fears

All that I have been carrying all these years

Do I risk it all, come this far just to fall, fall?

Oh, I can trust

And boy, I believe in us

I am terrified to love for the first time

Can’t you see that I’m bound in chains

And finally found my way

I am bound to you

I am

Ooh, I am

I’m bound to you


Colin
You Are The Reason

Calum Scott

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShZ978fBl6Y

This song perfectly describes Colin’s heart after Joshua leaves Virginia without giving any clue where he had gone. Colin didn’t understand his own feelings at first. He only knew that nothing in his life made sense anymore. Since his sister’s death, Colin’s heart had been locked up tight. He refused to cry then or now because losing control was his greatest fear. But Joshua’s quiet, steady presence had cracked the lava-incrusted walls encasing Colin’s wounded heart and he could no longer suppress or control the feelings that raged within him. But from that tsunami of feelings emerged one shining truth, he loved Joshua Abrams. It was now time to lay aside his pride and admit that Joshua was the reason his life was in tatters, and that he had to find a way to fix what he had broken.

There goes my heart beating

‘Cause you are the reason

I’m losing my sleep

Please come back now

There goes my mind racing

And you are the reason

That I’m still breathing

I’m hopeless now

I’d climb every mountain

And swim every ocean

Just to be with you

And fix what I’ve broken

Oh, ’cause I need you to see

That you are the reason

 

There goes my hand shaking

And you are the reason

My heart keeps bleeding

I need you now

If I could turn back the clock

I’d make sure the light defeated the dark

I’d spend every hour, of every day

Keeping you safe

And I’d climb every mountain

And swim every ocean

Just to be with you

And fix what I’ve broken

Oh, ’cause I need you to see

That you are the reason, oh

(I don’t wanna fight no more)

(I don’t wanna hurt no more)

(I don’t wanna cry no more)

(Come back, I need you to hold me closer now)

You are the reason, oh

(Just a little closer now)

(Come a little closer now)

(I need you to hold me tonight)

I’d climb every mountain

And swim every ocean

Just to be with you

And fix what I’ve broken

‘Cause I need you to see

That you are the reason


Colin

“Free Fallin'”

Tom Petty

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lWJXDG2i0A

This song defines Colin perfectly in the days of Love’s Magic. But this song resonates in his heart hand-in-hand with a terrible and soul-crushing sadness. He IS free. But only in the most mundane sense. In truth his heart is imprisoned by a crushing sense of fear and guilt. If anything, he longs for the very same love and intimacy which he most fears. His love of independence is a façade designed to protect a deeply wounded heart.

She’s a good girl, loves her mama

Loves Jesus and America too

She’s a good girl, who’s crazy ’bout Elvis

Loves horses and her boyfriend too

And it’s a long day livin’ in Reseda

There’s a freeway runnin’ through the yard

And I’m a bad boy, cause I don’t even miss her

I’m a bad boy for breakin’ her heart

 

Now I’m free

Free fallin’

Yeah, I’m free

Free fallin’

 

Now all the vampires walkin’ through the valley

Move west down Ventura boulevard

And all the bad boys are standing in the shadows

And the good girls are home with broken hearts

 

Now I’m free

I’m free fallin’

Yeah, I’m free

Free fallin’

 

Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now I’m

Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now

 

I wanna glide down over Mulholland

I wanna write her name in the sky

I’m gonna free fall out into nothin’

Gonna leave this world for awhile

 

Now I’m free (Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now I’m)

Free fallin’ (Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now I’m)

Yeah, I’m free (Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now I’m)

Free fallin’ (Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now I’m)

(Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now I’m)

Now I’m free

Free fallin’

Oh (Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now I’m)

Free fallin’ (Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now I’m)

Now I’m free (Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now I’m)

Oh, free fallin’ (Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now I’m)

(Free fallin’, now I’m free fallin’, now I’m) Free fallin’


David Gardener:

The Greatest Love

Whitney Houston

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYzlVDlE72w

Through Love’s Magic David is learning to leave behind the critical voice of his father and find his own worth, with the help of his therapist and from the unwavering support of his loving partner. Nate helped David to find that ‘greatest love’ and stood beside him as it healed his heart.

I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
And so I learned to depend on me

 

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone’s shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity

 

Because the greatest
Love of all is happening to me
I found the greatest
Love of all inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself

It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

 

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone’s shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity

Because the greatest
Love of all is happening to me
I found the greatest
Love of all inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

And if, by chance, that special place
That you’ve been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love


Colin

Love in the First Degree

Alabama

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3mBSQ-GP0s

Colin was resolved to never allow love to imprison his fiercely independent Irish heart but darkly handsome Joshua Abrams began to slowly break down that resolve. When Colin’s hot, Irish temper ended their relationship he was forced to look within and confront the dark secret which lay at the root of his anger. When Joshua left Colin was sure he’d get over it as he had a thousand times before… but he never made it to the door.

I once thought of love as a prison
a place I didn’t want to be
So long ago, I made a decision
to be footloose and fancy-free

But you came and I was so tempted
to gamble on love just one time
I never thought, that I would get caught
It seemed like the perfect crime

 

Baby you left me defense-less
I’ve only got one plea
Lock me away, inside of your love
and throw away the key
I’m guilty…of love in the first degree

I thought it would be so simple
like a thousand times before
I’d take what I wanted, and just walk away
but I never made it to the door

Now babe I’m not beggin’ for mercy
go ahead and throw the book at me
If lovin’ you’s a crime
I know that I’m as guilty as a man can be

 

Baby you left me defense-less
I’ve only got one plea
Lock me away, inside of your love
and throw away the key
I’m guilty…of love in the first degree

Love in the first degree (oh-oh yeah)
Love in the first degree
Oh Yeeeaaaah!

Baby you left me defense-less
I’ve only got one plea
Lock me away, inside of your love
and throw away the key
I’m guilty…of love in the first degree


Joshua Abrams

Magic Man

Heart

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ps7tVvQHLyo

Joshua knew from the moment of their first meeting that Colin was his ‘magic man’. There was no escape from the overwhelming allure of Colin’s enchantment. But Colin’s refusal to open his heart left Joshua lonely and adrift, and when Colin’s hot, Irish temper exploded and ended their relationship, he knew he had to return home and try to free himself from Colin’s magical hold on his heart.

Cold, late night so long ago
When I was not so strong you know
A pretty man came to me
I never seen eyes so blue
You know, I could not run away it seemed
We’d seen each other in a dream
Seemed like he knew me, he looked right through me, yeah

“Come on home, girl” he said with a smile
“you don’t have to love me yet, let’s get high awhile
But try to understand, try to understand
Try, try, try to understand, I’m a magic man”

Winter nights we sang in tune
Played inside the months of moon
“Never think of never..let this spell last forever”
Well, summer lover passed to fall
Tried to realize it all
Mama says she’s worried, growing up in a hurry

“Come on home, girl” Mama cried on the phone
“Too soon to lose my baby yet, my girl should be at home”
But try to understand, try to understand
Try, try, try to understand, he’s a magic man, Mama, ah
He’s a magic man

“Come on home, girl” he said with a smile
“I cast my spell of love on you, a woman from a child”
But try to understand, try to understand
Oh, oh, try, try, try to understand,
He’s a magic man, oh, he’s got the magic hands

Oh’s over top

“Come on home, girl” he said with a smile
“You don’t have to love me yet, let’s get high awhile”
But try to understand, try to understand
Try, try, try to understand, he’s a magic man, yeah, oh


Nate Reese

Separate Ways

The idyllic life Nate shares with David Gardener is shaken to the core when Nate is injured struggling to protect a student under attack. Traumatized by the incident, Nate seeks answers and resolution by becoming a leader of activist group called ‘End Assault’, a decision which David refuses to support. Feeling abandoned by his lover, Nate is heartbroken and fears their relationship may lose its way in the face of this unresolvable dilemma. He couldn’t change David’s mind. They were world’s apart.

“Separate Ways”

Journey

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcjzHMhBtf0

Here we stand
Worlds apart
Hearts broken in two, two, two
Sleepless nights
Losing ground
I’m reaching for you, you, you

Feelin’ that it’s gone
Can’t change your mind
If we can’t go on
To survive the tide
Love divides

Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
How we touched
And went our separate ways

If he ever hurts you
True love won’t desert you
You know I still love you
Though we touched
And went our separate ways

Troubled times
Caught between confusion and pain, pain, pain
Distant eyes
Promises we made were in vain, in vain, in vain

If you must go
I wish you love
You’ll never walk alone
Take care, my love
Miss you, love

Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
How we touched
And went our separate ways

If he ever hurts you
True love won’t desert you
You know I still love you
Though we touched
And went our separate ways

No

Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you

If he ever hurts you
True love won’t desert you
You know I still love you

I still love you, girl
I really love you, girl

And if he ever hurts you
True love won’t desert you
No, no


Love’s Magic

Magic

The true enchantment of Love’s Magic is beautifully reflected in this song by Olivia Newton-John. None of the four unique men of Love’s Magic realize the magic that lies within themselves, nor do they yet realize that the magic of the love they feel for their estranged lovers is the key to the healing and peace they have sought all their lives

Magic

Come take my hand
You should know me
I’ve always been in your mind
You know I will be kind
I’ll be guiding you

Building your dream has to start now
There’s no other road to take
You won’t make a mistake
I’ll be guiding you

You have to believe we are magic
Nothin’ can stand in our way
You have to believe we are magic
Don’t let your aim ever stray

And if all your hopes survive
Destiny will arrive
I’ll bring all your dreams alive
For you
I’ll bring all your dreams alive
For you

From where I stand, you are home free
The planets align so rare
There’s promise in the air
And I’m guiding you
