I Won't Give Up
Jason Mraz

Song: I Won’t Give Up

Artist: Jason Mraz

Submitter and why: 

darkmus: I have a lot of adult!Puppyshipping feels. The boys grown up, knowing their feelings… having fights but getting through them (… though partially because of a stubbornness not to give in to give up on ‘them’.) Love the line “Our differences they do a lot to teach us”… ugh feeeeels

Buy: on Amazon.com


Lyrics: 

When I look into your eyes

It’s like watching the night sky

Or a beautiful sunrise

Well, there’s so much they hold

And just like them old stars

I see that you’ve come so far

To be right where you are

How old is your soul?

 

Well, I won’t give up on us

Even if the skies get rough

I’m giving you all my love

I’m still looking up

 

And when you’re needing your space

To do some navigating

I’ll be here patiently waiting

To see what you find

 

'Cause even the stars they burn

Some even fall to the earth

We’ve got a lot to learn

God knows we’re worth it

No, I won’t give up

 

I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily

I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make

Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use

The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake

And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend 

For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn

We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in

I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not, and who I am

 

I won’t give up on us

Even if the skies get rough

I’m giving you all my love

I’m still looking up, still looking up.

 

Well, I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)

God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)

We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)

God knows we’re worth it (and we’re worth it)

 

I won’t give up on us

Even if the skies get rough

I’m giving you all my love

I’m still looking up

Take Care
Backstreet Boys

Song: Take Care

Artist: Backstreet Boys

Submitter and why: 

darkmus: I’m a girl that grew up in the 90’s so I like the Backstreet Boys. Like, really like them. It’s never really gone away, so when they had their new album I previewed it on youtube and found THIS TRACK. omg. This dumb, BONUS track that is only on the physical CD albums… NOT digital ones! AND at first, only available at Target.

I was so taken by this song that I went out and bought it in stores. (Something unheard of for me, who favors staying at home in PJs and buying things online.)

ANYWAY.

This sooooong. UGH! I think of it as Jou’s feelings for genderbent!Seto. Genderbent!Seto is a Superwoman! (I have another song by Frankmusik that I need to post with this headcanon. But later.) 

Seto, who tries to do everything for everyone and be strong and cut-throat in the male-dominated business world but UGH sometimes being a lady CEO is REALLY FRICKEN HARD and also MAYBE I do have some abandonment issues from being an orphan and it gets me weepy when I’m by myself and stressed and ~hormones~… 

And Jou, who is like “hey, it’s ok <3 That’s what partners are for. I GOTCHU GURL”

(idk where I’m going with this, it’s 3 am.)

Buy: on Amazon

Lyrics: 

I, I’ve waited all my life

To step out from the light

And see the shadows fading.

 

You, you’ve always stood so tall

I’ve never thought you’d fall,

But now it’s you that’s fading!

 

I know that inside you’re delicate

But you say that

You don’t need someone to take care of you, but

 

[Chorus:]

I, I, I’ll take care of you, you, you

Take care of

I, I, I’ll take care of you, you, you

Take care of you

 

Oh, oh, oh

 

So you run, there’s no need to run

Stand up face to face, the stakes

Are high, but we’ll reach higher!

 

I won’t tell a soul if you cry

I can hold you, while you cry now

 

I know that inside you’re delicate

But you say that

You don’t need someone to take care of you, but

 

[Chorus:]

I, I, I’ll take care of you, you, you

Take care of

I, I, I’ll take care of you, you, you

Take care of you

 

Oh, oh, oh

Take care of you

 

I know that inside you’re delicate

 

[Chorus:]

And, I, I take care of you, you, you

Take care of!

Baby, baby, baby

I, I, I take care of you, you, you

Take care of you!

Take care of you!

One More Night
Maroon 5




Song: One More Night

Artist: Maroon 5

Submitter and why: 

darkmus: This album came out today. I got it. I listened to it. And my mind… went where it always goes.

Why? So many things. Fighting imagery, unwanted desire… Just. Yeah. Hear for yourself.

Also I really like Maroon 5.

(And please excuse me while I squeal over the mental image of one of them with a smug, come-hither look and lipstick.)

Buy: on Amazon.com

Lyrics: 

You and I go hard

At each other like we going to war

You and I go rough

We keep throwing things and slamming the doors

You and I get so

Damn dysfunctional we stopped keeping score

You and I get sick

Yeah I know that we can’t do this no more



[Hook]

But baby there you again, there you again making me love you

Yeah I stopped using my head, using my head let it all go

Got you stuck on my body, on my body like a tattoo

And now I’m feeling stupid, feeling stupid crawling back to you

So I cross my heart, and I hope to die

That I’ll only stay with you one more night

And I know I’ve said it a million times

But I’ll only stay with you one more night



Try to tell you no

But my body keeps on telling you yes

Try to tell you stop

But your lipstick got me so out of breath

I be waking up

In the morning probably hating myself

And I be waking up

Feeling sastified but guilty as hell

[Hook]



Yeah baby give me one more night

Yeah baby give me one more night

Yeah baby give me one more night



[Hook]



(Yeah baby give me one more night)



So I cross my heart and I hope to die

That I’ll only stay with you one more night

And I know I’ve said it a million times

But I’ll only stay with you one more night

Lover I Don't Have To Love
Bright Eyes

Song:  Lover I Don’t Have to Love 

Artist:  Bright Eyes 

Submitter and why: 

darkmus: This is actually a song I found though  scatteringashes (way back when on the jou_loves_kaiba LJ community) but for the life of me, I can’t find the original post…

I see this song mostly as Kaiba’s POV (though, I guess some parts could be Jou?). They don’t love each other but, UNF. They want some of that.

Buy:on Amazon.com

Lyrics: 

I picked you out of a crowd and talked to you
I said I liked your shoes
You said, “Thanks, can I follow you?”
So it’s up the stairs and out of view
No prying eyes
I poured some wine
I asked your name, you asked the time

Now it’s two o’clock
The club is closed 
We’re up the block
Your hands on me; Pressing hard against your jeans
Your tongue in my mouth, trying to keep the words from coming out
You didn’t care to know who else may have been you before

I want a lover I don’t have to love
I want a girl who’s too sad to give a fuck
Where’s the kid with the chemicals?
I thought he said to meet him here but I’m not sure
I’ve got the money if you’ve got the time
You said it feels good
I said, “I’ll give it a try.”

Then my mind went dark
We both forgot where your car was parked
Let’s just take the train
I’ll meet up with the band in the morning

Bad actors with bad habits
Some sad singers they just play tragic
And the phone’s ringing and the van’s leaving
Let’s just keep touching; let’s just keep… keep singing…

I want a lover I don’t have to love
I want a boy who’s so drunk he doesn’t talk
Where’s the kid with the chemicals?
I’ve got a hunger and I can’t seem to get full
I need some meaning I can memorize
The kind I have always seems to slip my mind

But you, but you…

You write such pretty words
But life’s no storybook
Love’s an excuse to get hurt
And to hurt.
Do you like to hurt?
I do, I do

Then hurt me… [x10]

Cut Me Down
Frankmusik




Song: Cut Me Down

Artist: Frankmusik

Submitter and why: 

darkmus: This is a two-part post!

First part/song is Jou’s POV, post-series. They’re on the rocks because Kaiba is being a cold bastard. Jou is thinking about giving up on them.
One of my puppyshipping head canons has Jou a lot more invested in their relationship than Kaiba is. This is especially in the lyric “You feel what you want / Except the pain that’s surrounding me”. 
Another head canon is that Kaiba is super posessive (which… er… isn’t healthy >_>”) Jou is hoping that that Kaiba will “Let me go go” and wants to leave Domino City “I look behind me and I’m leaving your town” (because, lol, Kaiba practically owns the city).

Anyway, I love the line “We’re fighting like kids again” that alludes to how they were when they were teenagers.

Then it leads to [Part Two]!

Buy: on Amazon.com

Lyrics: 

Is this how it is
We’re fighting like kids again,
Oh darlin’
Is this what we are
We scream until it’s too far again yeah

I can’t believe
You’re loving me
With a dagger in your hand
And I can’t believe
I can’t be free
When this ain’t what I planned
Planned

Baby girl I stick you up
But you just cut me down
Cut me down
Cut me down
Cut me down
(Bad boy)
And girl how I tried to stick you up
But you just cut me down
Cut me down
Cut me down

You feel what you want
Except the pain that’s surrounding me
Oh darling
You take what you want
My soul ain’t nothing to you it’s free yeah

And I won’t survive
I’m not alive
When you’re standing in my way
And I won’t survive
I’m empty inside
I’m crushed till I can’t stay
Stay

Baby girl I stick you up
But you just cut me down
Cut me down
Cut me down
Cut me down
(Bad boy)
And girl how I tried to stick you up
But you just cut me down
Cut me down
Cut me down

You got me wishing I can never turn round
I look behind me and I’m leaving your town
Let me go go
Let me let me go
Let me go go
Let me let me go

Baby girl I stick you up
But you just cut me down
Cut me down
Cut me down
Cut me down
And girl how I tried to stick you up
But you just cut me down
Cut me down
Cut me down

No Champagne (Feat. Natalia Kills)
Frankmusik




Song: No Champagne (Feat. Natalia Kills)

Artist: Frankmusik

Submitter and why: 

darkmus: After [Part One], Jou has left and Kaiba is remorseful for not being there and as open as he wants to be. He’s “foolish” for keeping himself so guarded.

Frankmusik’s lines are sung by Kaiba, Natalia Kills’ by Jou.
I also see this happening at some sort of fancy shindig (with lots of champagne!) where Jou up and leaves.

Buy:on Amazon.com

Lyrics: 

Say it ain’t so
I think you’re leaving
Now, life won’t be the same
You’re letting go of all of our dreaming
And now, there’s only me to blame

There’ll be no champagne that can take away my pain
Why do I do this do this?
Always be useless useless
There’ll be no champagne that can take away my pain
Why do I do this do this?
Always be foolish foolish

Tried to keep our ship from sinking
It’s not so easy by myself
I fight no more
My love is sleeping
I’m rich but not so much in will

There’ll be no champagne that can take away my pain
Why do I do this do this?
Always be useless useless
There’ll be no champagne that can take away my pain
Why do I do this do this?
Always be foolish foolish

Why do I do this, why do I do this?
Now I’m lost in visions of my wrong decisions
And I’m lost in visions of my wrong decisions
And I’m lost in visions of my wrong decisions

There’ll be no champagne that can take away my pain
Why do I do this do this?
Always be useless useless
There’ll be no champagne that can take away my pain
Why do I do this do this?
Always be foolish foolish

Freak the Freak Out (feat. Victoria Justice)
Victorious Cast

Song: Freak the Freak Out

Artist: The “Victorious” Cast

Submitter and why: I’m Queen Thief and I feel like this should be the Puppyshipping anthem. I mean, I think it follows Kaiba and Joey’s relationship pretty well (in the anime if nothing else). 1st verse is Kaiba and Joey meeting in the game shop, when Joey “tries to talk” to Kaiba but Kaiba just “can’t relate”. Joey’s friendship was offered and retracted so quickly that I think Kaiba feels like it was “easy come, easy go”. But, in reality, Joey keeps trying to get Kaiba to listen to him all throughout their relationship. I kinda read “freak out” and “throw a fit” as pseudonyms for the epic duels and fights that they always have.

2nd verse is Kaiba asking Joey, “Really, why do you think I’m here, focusing so much attention on you?” Because Kaiba isn’t the only one who won’t listen, as Joey doesn’t seem to pick up on the fact that Kaiba devotes more attention to him than anyone else (except Yugi, his rival, and Mobuba, his brother).

It’s not a deep song, but I didn’t choose it because it represented their deeper feelings. I chose it because I felt like it reflects one aspect of Kaiba and Joey’s relationship really well; that aspect being all the surface tension and miscommunication that people think this couple is famous for.

Lyrics: 

Are you listenin’
Hear me talk, hear me sing
Open up the door
Easy less, easy more
When you tell me to beware
Are you hear are you there
Is there something I should know
Easy come, easy go
Out of your head
Don’t hear a word I said.
I can’t communicate. When you wait.
Don’t relate.

I try to talk to you
but you never even knew
So what’s it gonna be? Tell me.
Can you hear me? (hear me? can you hear?)
I’m so sick of it
your attention deficit
never listen
you never listen
I’m so sick of it
so i’ll throw another fit
never listen
you never listen

I scream your name!
It always stays the same.
I scream and shout!
So what I’m gonna do
Now is freak the freak out.
Hey!
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa.

Easy come, easy go
Can you hear me

I scream your name!
It always stays the same.
I scream and shout!
So what I’m gonna do
Now is freak the freak out.

Hey!
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa.

Now is freak the freak out. 
Oh…
I scream your name!
But you never listen!
Oh…
But you never listen…

Song: Like I Do

Artist: Live

Submitter and Why: Bagofmints. This song could work for either as the voice, with the emphasis on love being something dangerous that makes you vulnerable while the feeling itself makes you feel strangely powerful at the same time, but that desperation to have the person stay despite everything they do to you emotionally by being there.

Buy: on iTunes

Lyrics: 

Darling, I feel like a god when I am next to you 

Something sacred, someone straight and true 

Tell me, do you feel the same way too? 

Darling, your face is radiant with the light of love 

The kind that’s sent straight down from up above 

And now you’re all I’m thinking of 

Thinking of 

Thinking of 

Thinking of 

Don’t you give me loving like a revelation 

Don’t you make me burn and make me feel the danger 

Salutations to the maker of my finest hour 

Goddess, queen, mother, sister, lover 

Don’t you ever leave 

Darling, I feel like a god when I am next to you 

Something worth the worship of this honest fool 

Tell me do you feel the same way too? 

Like I do? 

Like I do 

Like I do 

Don’t you give me loving like a revelation 

Don’t you make me burn and make me feel the danger 

Salutations to the maker of my finest hour 

Goddess, queen, mother, sister, lover 

Don’t you ever 

Don’t you give me loving like a revelation 

Don’t you make me burn and make me feel the danger 

Salutations to the maker of my finest hour 

Goddess, queen, mother, sister, lover 

Don’t leave 

Don’t leave 

Oh yeah 

Don’t leave 

Don’t you give me loving like a revelation 

Don’t you make me burn and make me feel the danger 

Salutations to the maker of my finest hour 

Goddess, queen, mother, sister, lover 

Don’t you ever 

Don’t you give me loving like a revelation 

Don’t you give me love 

Don’t you give me love 

Don’t you give me love 

Don’t you feel the same way like I do? 

Like I do 

Like I do 

Like I do

Song: When Doves Cry

Artist: Prince

Submitter and Why: YourInnerDemons. I see this as Jou’s POV, basically what he wants to say, but can’t bring himself to.

Buy: on Amazon

Lyrics:

Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling
Can you picture this?

Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (So cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like 
When doves cry

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You’ve got the butterflies all tied up
Don’t make me chase you
Even doves have pride

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold? (World so cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like 
When doves cry

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (A world that’s so cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding (Maybe, maybe I’m like my father)
Maybe I’m just like my father too bold (Ya know he’s too bold)
Maybe you’re just like my mother (Maybe you’re just like my mother)
She’s never satisfied (She’s never, never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other? (Why do we scream? Why?)
This is what it sounds like 
When doves cry

When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)
When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)

The Best Thing
Savage Garden

Song: The Best Thing

Artist: Savage Garden

Submitter and why:

darkmus: I mostly see this as Kaiba’s POV, but I can see this working for either of them. Contradictions, perceptions that their relationship doesn’t work… but in the end, it actually does.

The reason I say Kaiba’s POV is because as much as Kaiba wants to be the best and seems to have a lot of things going for him, it’s not so completely true. Joey helps him become a more complete person - being the best thing to happen to him.

(This isn’t so eloquent, sorry. X_X)

Lyrics:

Never want to fly 

Never want to leave 

Never want to say what you mean to me 

Never want to run 

Frightened to believe 

You’re the best thing about me 



Sometimes I feel like this is only chemistry 

Stuck in a maze searching for a way to 

Shut down turn around feel the ground beneath me 

You’re so close where do you end 

Where do I begin? 

Always pushing and pulling 

Sometimes sanity takes vacation time on me 

I’m in a daze stumbling bewildered 

North of gravity head up in the stratosphere 

You and I roller coaster ride in love 

You’re the centre of adrenaline

And I’m beginning to understand 



Never want to fly 

Never want to leave 

Never want to say what you mean to me 

Never want to run 

Frightened to believe 

You’re the best thing about me 



Walk on broken glass make my way through fire 

These are things I would do for love 

Farewell peace of mind kiss goodbye to reason 

Up is down the impossible occurs each day 

This intoxication thrills me 

I only pray it doesn’t kill me 



Never want to fly 

Never want to leave 

Never want to say what you mean to me 

Never want to run 

Frightened to believe 

You’re the best thing about me 



You’re the centre of adrenaline

And I’m beginning to understand 

You could be the best thing about me 



Never want to fly 

Never want to leave 

Never want to say what you mean to me 

Never want to run 

Frightened to believe 

You’re the best thing about me 



You could be the best thing about me 

You’re the best thing about me 



You could be the best thing about me 

Oh no no

You’re the best thing about me 



What if you’re the best thing about me 

You’re the best thing about me 



You could be the best thing about me 

Oh no no

You’re the best thing about me 



Never want to fly 

Never want to leave 



You’re the best thing about me
