(Lyrics! XD I’m on my phone, so you guys just a url to lyrics. XD;;;))
I can’t help but mention this song from the Native album from OR. If you specifically listen to this song, you could just… Melt with feels. XD I did, this is why:
In my head, I saw Killian trying so hard to just feel after Milah died. He went to Neverland in order to figure out a way to defeat Rumple, but even after extracting his revenge, deep down he knows that won’t work, so he’s resigned to the numb loneliness without his love, stuck in a world full of gray.
"But with you, I feel again, yeah with you, I can feel again"
The slightly faster and uplifting tempo change almost represents colors returning to him, as he meets Emma, a girl who can call him on his charm and sass, who doesn’t just give in to anything, one of the strongest women he’s ever met. She challenges him, awakens his heart in a way, sneaking her way unknowingly into it.
"I’m feeling better since you know me, I was a lonely soul but that’s the old me"
When Storybrooke was in danger, and Killian jumped on his ship with the last magic bean, his return indeed saved everyone in Storybrooke, but most importantly— it saved Emma.
When in Neverland with her, following her and experiencing everything with her, seeing her fierce drive to save her loved ones, culminating in their kiss?
I’m done now. X’D I’ll just headdesk for such an overly corny musing. If I wrote better, I’d probably write a fanfic! Lol.
…. Also my phone isn’t going on YouTube, or else you’d get a video xD
