let her into your heart - kyoxtohru
Fanmix #3! ♥ Getting hang of this stuff. This mix is a little different, as I actually took the time to jot down my thoughts for each song...which is why this took so long. XD Lazy, man...anyway...
KyoXTohru was a pairing that, at first, I did not like. I was more found of Kyo with Uo, however reading further into the series, I saw that Tohru truly did care for Kyo and Kyo for Tohru...and the pairing just sort of grew on me. Fruits Basket was one of my first major fandoms, so doing a fanmix for it means a lot to me. Then again, I saw that with every fanmix. XD So, enjoy!
Fanmix Title: let her into your heart
Fandom: Fruits Basket
Character (s): Kyo Sohma x Tohru Honda
01. Somewhere I Belong © Linkin Park
I wanna heal, I wanna feel what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I’ve held so long
(Erase all the pain till it’s gone)
I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I’m close to something real
I wanna find something I’ve wanted all along
Somewhere I belong
Enter Kyo, an angry almost member of the Chinese Zodiac. This Sohma was unsure of his place in his family and in his own life. He took out all his aggression on those around him. In all honesty, he just wanted to find his place amongst family, friends...he hadn't a soul to soothe his pain or who would understand him.
02. When The Day Met The Night © Panic! At The Disco
When the moon found the sun
He looked like he was barely hanging on
But her eyes saved his life
In the middle of summer
As if by a chance, Miss Tohru Honda wandered into the Sohma's home. She was peaceful, overly optimstic and a bit of a space cadet, however in her, Kyo saw something he hadn't seen in quite a while. Tohru was different, different from his family, from who he had been surrounded by. With just a smile, Kyo felt himself unsure of what he should be thinking about this mysterious girl who longed to be born in the Year of the Cat.
03. Everything You Want © Vertical Horizen
He's everything you want
He's everything you need
He's everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
He says all the right things
At exactly the right time
But he means nothing to you
And you don't know why
Tohru began to stay with the Sohmas and that's when Kyo began to actually stay home. Kyo and Tohru, along with Kyo's rival and cousin, Yuki, began to share moments of peace...however that wouldn't last long. Yuki was nicknamed 'The Prince', for obvious reasons and deep in his mind, he knew that he could never be like Yuki and in turn, perhaps he would never be able to make Tohru smile the way Yuki did.
04. Crazy For This Girl © Evan and Jared
Would you look at her
She looks at me
She's got me thinking about her constantly
But she don't know how I feel
And as she carries on without a doubt
I wonder if she's figured out
I'm crazy for this girl
Slowly, however surely, Kyo began to feel different in a way. He felt himself subdued by her smile, by her charm and he couldn't deal with such a thing. He became a bit more fierce in attitude, however that didn't stop Tohru from smiling, from conversing with him, from wanting to be a Cat. However, Tohru being just a tad spacey, wouldn't soon realise that Kyo had indeed fallen for her.
05. Accidently in Love © Counting Crows
How much longer will it take to cure this
Just to cure it cause I can't ignore it if it's love (love)
Makes me wanna turn around and face me but I don't know nothing 'bout love
Despite his feelings, what did Kyo know about love?! He hadn't the tact, an obvious point. Besides that, Kyo knew who held Tohru's fragile heart. It grew harder and harder just to look at Tohru; he couldn't ignore this. She had a sincereity within her being that Kyo just could not escape...perhaps this was truly love.
06. Ready To Fall © Joey Fatone
I get a feeling I can't explain
Whenever your eyes meet mine
My heart spins in circles
And I lose all space in time
And now that
We're standing face to face
Something tells me it's gonna be okay
Perhaps the big confession? Kyo knows this girl, as simple as she is, is causing all of these odd feelings, these sensations. Nothing seems right anymore and despite the lack of confidence in himself, Tohru can still see the 'plum on his back'. He may doubt this, believing the Prince Yuki has her heart, however in the very back of his mind, he knew everything would be okay, as long as Tohru was around.
07. What's Left of Me © Nick Lachey
Cause I want you,
And I feel you,
Crawling underneath my skin
Like a hunger,
Like a burning,
To find a place I've never been
Now I'm broken,
And I'm faded,
I'm half the man I thought I would be:
But you can have what's left of me
Being excluded from his own home, his own family, he had lost most of his innocence and his genuine feelings, replacing them with anger and rage. He was left to continue through life in the shadow of the original Zodiac, always two steps behind Yuki. Despite Kagura's urges to make him see he was accepted, he didn't feel it. He had Tohru within his veins and being accepted by her seemed to be the ultimate acceptance.
08. First Time © Lifehouse
Looking at you,holding my breath,
For once in my life,I'm scared to death,
I'm taking a chance,letting you inside.
He may have trained with bears [so says the rumor] and he may have battled back against tougher opponents [a lost, as per Yuki] but this seemed to be the hardest task he would ever have to go through. He had sealed himself, his anger and regret, away and out of sight and to open up if even in the slightest was taking a risk. However, it seemed Miss Honda was worth that risk. And she would have to prove worthy as she would be put up against what Kyo truly was...and that's what scared him.
09. Iris © Goo Goo Dolls
And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
And you bleed just to know you're alive
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
Kyo's truest form...the deepest and darkest part of his heart. He knew he wasn't accepted and once Tohru had witnessed his grotesque transformation, it was all over. He thought that no one, not even Tohru, would be able to overcome the demon within him. What Kyou did not expect was for Tohru to see him, for her to look upon him and offer the hand of love, the hand of acceptance.
10. We're A Miracle © Christine Aguilera
Here we are, safe at last
We can breath a sigh, seems the storm has passed
Through it all, no one knew,
That all the tears in heaven, would bring me back to you
No one I know, imagined we would make it
But it only matters that we both believe
In her arms he was carried into a life he hadn't known. They had overcome every obstacle, faced every fear and the two had made it out alive...and together. He found someone who accepted him and she found someone who would fill that void, who would allow her smile to burn bright. Their meeting, their formed love...it was truly a miracle.
11. Hey Jude © Joe Anderson
Hey Jude don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better
Hey Jude don't be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better
When Kyo allowed Tohru to enter his heart, he was allowing himself to heal those bruises he carried upon his soul. Perhaps it was fear that Tohru would turn out to be like his mother, like his family...however, she was now in his system, she was within him, the blood in his veins and the one thing that would allow him to believe that there was still love in the world...and Kyo had found the purest form in Miss Tohru Honda.
