FWN Soundtrack



New York State of Mind

I know what I’m needin’
And I don’t want to waste more time
I’m in a New York state of mind
It was so easy livin’ day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take

Waiting for a Girl Like You

I’ve been waiting for a girl like you
To come into my life
I’ve been waiting for a girl like you
A love that will survive
I’ve been waiting for someone new
To make me feel alive
Yeah, waiting for a girl like you
To come into my life

Get Me Through December

Get me through December
So I can start again
No divine purpose brings freedom from sin
And peace is a gift that must come from within
I’ve looked for the love that will bring me to rest
Feeding this hunger beating strong in my chest

Holding Out for a Hero

Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasies
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There’s someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
Isn’t there a superman to sweep me off my feet?

Full of Grace

the winter here’s cold, and bitter
it’s chilled us to the bone
we haven’t seen the sun for weeks
too long too far from home
I feel just like I’m sinking
and I claw for solid ground
I’m pulled down by the undertow
I never thought I could feel so low
oh darkness I feel like letting go

She

Me
I’ll take her laughter and her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes I’ve got to be
The meaning of my life is
She

One Night

One night I will be the moon
Hanging over you
Spilling all over your body
Covering all your wounds
One night I will be the star
Falling where you are
Swimming in the deep of my love
Filling your empty heart
One night, one night, one night

What Hurts the Most

It’s hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I’m alone
Still harder gettin’ up, gettin’ dressed, livin’ with this regret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade, give away all the words that I saved in my heart
That I left unspoken
What hurts the most was being so close
And havin’ so much to say
And watchin’ you walk away
And never knowin’ what could’ve been
And not seein’ that lovin’ you
Is what I was trying to do, oh

Let Her Go

But you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Never Let Me Go

And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
And all this devotion was rushing over me
And the questions I have for a sinner like me
But the arms of the ocean deliver me

All of Me

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

Flying Without Wings

Well, for me, it’s waking up beside you
To watch the sunrise on your face
To know that I can say, “I love you”
In any given time or place
The little things that only I know
Those are the things that make you mine
And it’s like flying without wings
‘Cause you’re my special thing
I’m flying without wings

Rule the World

If walls break down, I will comfort you
If angels cry, oh I’ll be there for you
You’ve saved my soul
Don’t leave me now
Don’t leave me now
Yeah you and me we can ride on a star
If you stay with me girl, we can rule the world

Beautiful War

I say love
Don’t mean nothing
Left them something
Worth fighting for
It’s a beautiful war

Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?

To really love a woman, let her hold you
Til’ you know how she needs to be touched
You’ve gotta breathe her, really taste her
Til’ you can feel her in your blood
An’ when you can see your unborn children in her eyes
You know you really love a woman

Kiss Me Slowly

Well, I’m not sure what this is gonna be,
But with my eyes closed all I see
Is the skyline, through the window,
The moon above you and the streets below.
Hold my breath as you’re moving in,
Taste your lips and feel your skin.
When the time comes, baby don’t run, just kiss me slowly.

Sea of Lovers

In the sea of lovers without ships
And lovers without sight
You’re the only way out of this
Sea of lovers losing time
And lovers losing hope
Will you let me follow you
Wherever you go
Bring me home

I’m Your Man

I’ve been running through these promises to you
That I made and I could not keep
Ah but a man never got a woman back
Not by begging on his knees
Or I’d crawl to you baby
And I’d fall at your feet
And I’d howl at your beauty
Like a dog in heat
And I’d claw at your heart
And I’d tear at your sheet
I’d say please, please
I’m your man

Halo

Remember those walls I built?
Well, baby they’re tumbling down
And they didn’t even put up a fight
They didn’t even make a sound
I found a way to let you in
But, I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now

Hero

Would you tremble
If I touched your lips?
Would you laugh?
Oh please tell me this.
Now would you die
For the one you loved?
Hold me in your arms, tonight.

Have I Told You Lately

There’s a love less defined
And its yours and its mine
Like the sun
And at the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray
To the one, to the one

Dance Me to the End of Love

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above
Dance me to the end of love

  1. What an awesome collection! I love it.
    Have a 13 yr old who lives and breathes music and I have already heard a few of the songs in your collection courtesy my daughter. But then she takes away the beauty of the song when she mentions I actually am up-to-date to today’s music because of her! GRRRRR
    So, ladies … I have some ammunition stocked up in my pockets as well. It’s time my darling gets a taste of her own medicine. What say?:-)

    1. Hahaha, how did this ammunition hold up against our youth? πŸ˜€
      I personally live in the 50-80s music wise.
      There are many lovely songs, but it also exist next to noisy hot messes that pierce instead of soothe…

      1. Totally agree! I, very very diplomatically, try to make my oldest listen to the oldies. Don’t know if it makes any difference to her coz she has to go to school and try not to blurt it out in front of her friends about her mom’s choice of songs … talk about keeping her dignity intact and all that πŸ˜‰

  2. Love all of the glorious music…She, New York frame of mind, Have I told you lately…all so FWN….thanks for this Soundtrack….superb!

    Best,

    Anupama

    1. Thanks anupama! These songs are now forever tied up in my head with FWN. If they happen to pop up on the radio, I drift off to our lovers… *dreamy*

  3. Awesome sound track gals.. first hearing some of those songs and I must say each song represented FWN so well as it they were mad specially for this story… but I must say am crazy inloved with Brian Adams songs so my favorite from the list was “have you really every loved a woman?” πŸ˜€

  4. Awesome work.

    Each song sang the glory of FWN beautifully.

    But to me, I loved what I could imagine the scene laying as you described with ‘waiting for a girl like you’, ‘sea of love’, ‘Halo’, ‘all of me’.

  5. Savoured the complete soundtrack today. What a soulful collection. I love ‘Get me through December’, ‘Holding out for a hero’ and ‘Have I told you lately’.
    From the first to the last song, the album describes FWN’s journey all along. πŸ™‚ Amazed by your creativity, Girls.

    1. It’s almost enough for me to want to head back to the classroom and change my major πŸ˜›
      It would be the goal to get Barun and Sanaya back on screen with a steamy plot AND a decent wardrobe!

  6. FWN is addictive, I just couldn’t keep away! This time I didn’t want go reading fast but cherish all of it. It’s one of a kind experience, this story… amazing penmanship, intense visuals and this music πŸ™‚ You two are just brilliant!

  7. I love most of these songs, but I have to confess; I can’t stand “Have I told you lately”… There is something about that song that makes me very sad.

    When I saw the cast I was listening to “Love supreme” by Robbie Williams. Among his lyrics:

    Yeah turn down the love songs that you hear
    ‘Cause you can’t avoid the sentiment
    That echoes in your ear
    Saying love will stop the pain
    Saying love will kill the fear
    Do you believe
    You must believe
    When there’s no love in town
    This new century keeps bringing you down
    All the places you have been
    Trying to find a love supreme
    A love supreme

    So, I guess, that there is heartbreak…damn that “Let her go” always eager to spoil the fun…

    Well, all the introductions to the cast have been made, the mood is set up and the trailer has given me an idea of what I might expect, I am ready to bee immersed in your world

  8. I am just floating somewhere after listening tothe songs as these are some of my all time favorites. I am not walking around my house, just floating away. My 18year old son thinks I have gone nuts. Giving me crazy stares. Has never seen me this way.

  9. Just a glance thru the list and loving the choices and images.
    Will visit this page again and again as I read the chapters.
