Fanmix: Shared Breath (Fringe; Olivia, Peter & Walter)

A Fringe mix focused mainly on Olivia, Peter and Walter. I call the Fringe-cast my favourite functional dysfunctional family. They start out as disparate lost souls -- jaded Peter, detached Olivia and lunatic Walter -- but when thrown together to combat a world that no longer makes sense in any traditional way, they come to depend on each other. They learn to be a cohesive, if eccentric, unit. They are strongest together, breathing in sync.

01. Breathe (2AM), Anna Nalick
There's a light at each end of this tunnel,
You shout 'cause you're just as far in as you'll ever be out
And these mistakes you've made, you'll just make them again
If you only try turning around.

02. Be Still and Breathe, Ivoryline
I thought you'd be listening
A little more intently for me.
But I'll be here when you're ready.
Until then, just be still and breathe.
But I was screaming.
I was screaming.

03. Help, I'm Alive, Metric
Help, I'm alive, my heart keeps beating like a hammer
Hard to be soft
Tough to be tender

04. Harder to Breathe, Maroon 5
When it gets cold outside and you got nobody to love
You'll understand what I mean when I say
There's no way we're gonna give up
And like a little girl cries in the face of a monster that lives in her dreams
Is there anyone out there cause it's getting harder and harder to breathe

05. 24, Jem
Been given 24 hours
To tie up loose ends
To make amends
His eyes said it all
I started to fall
And the silence deafened
Head spinning round
No time to sit down
Just wanted to
Run and run and run
Be careful they say
Don't wish life away,
Now I've one day

06. Crazy for This Girl, Evan and Jaron
She was the one to hold me
The night the sky fell down
And what was I thinking when
The world didn't end
Why didn't I know what I know now

07. Long Shot, Kelly Clarkson
My heartbeat beats me senselessly
Why's everything got to be so intense with me
I'm trying to handle all this unpredictability

08. Slow Motion, David Gray
While I was watching you did a slow dissolve
Did I imagine or do the walls have eyes
Did I imagine they held us hypnotized
Did I imagine or do the walls have eyes
Life in slow motion somehow it don't feel real

09. Breathe Me, Sia
Ouch I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah I think that I might break
I've lost myself again and I feel unsafe

10. Breathe Today, Flyleaf
Logic forces me to believe in this,
And I have learned to see,
And I can only say what I've seen and heard,
And only you can choose,
And every choice you make will affect you,
Suit your own self.

11. Breath, Breaking Benjamin
This will be all over soon.
Pour salt into the open wound.
Is it over yet? Let me in.
So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what's left.
I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.

12. Breathe No More, Evanescence
Lie to me,
Convince me that I've been sick forever.
And all of this,
Will make sense when I get better.
But I know the difference,
Between myself and my reflection.
I just can't help but to wonder,
Which of us do you love?

13. Shattered, Trading Yesterday
And the reflection of a lie will keep me waiting
Love gone for so long
This day's ending is the proof of time killing all the faith I know
Knowing that faith is all I hold
And I've lost who I am
And I can't understand
Why my heart is so broken

14. I'm There Too, Michelle Featherstone
I see me in your eyes
And I’m the tears you cry
And when you fall apart
And you're dying from a broken heart
I’m there too

15. I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles), The Proclaimers
But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walks a thousand miles
To fall down at your door

16. Last Day on Earth, Kate Miller-Heidke
In my head I repeat our conversations
Over and over til they feel like hallucinations
You know me - I love to lose my mind

17. Til the End of Time, DeVotchka
Like sisters and brothers we lean on each other
Like sweethearts carved on a headstone
Oh why even bother, it'll be here tomorrow
It's not worth it sleeping alone

18. Love You Til the End, The Pogues
I just want to be there
When we're caught in the rain
I just want to see you laugh not cry
I just want to feel you
When the night puts on its cloak
I'm lost for words don't tell me
Cause all I can say
I love you till the end

19. Breathe, Angels and Airwaves
Let this begin.
Stars fall like dust, our lips will touch,
We speak too much.
Did you know that I love you?

20. Breathe In, Breathe Out, Mat Kearney
We push and pull and I fall down sometimes,
I'm not letting go,
You hold the other line.

21. The Air That I Breathe, The Hollies
Peace came upon me and it breathes in me
Don't sleep silent angel don't you sleep
Sometimes all I need is the air that I breathe and to love you

[Zip: Tracks+Art]

Liner Notes:
At the beginning of the series all three characters are closed off and wound up tight -- Peter hides in sarcasm and flippancy; Olivia in the guise of a determined workaholic; and Walter is lost in anxiety and dementia.
01. Olivia.
02. Peter, especially in relation to Walter.
03-05. Shared anxiety, particularly Walter's (blatant) and Olivia's (hidden).
06. Peter falls for Olivia, but also for the stabilizing factor of family she (and the others) come to represent to him.
07. Olivia's fear of intimacy is almost as strong as her desire for it. And I would be remiss if I did not point out this wonderful video.

As surely as things become clearer, they become more complicated and frightening. They are family now, with all the burdens and blessings.
08. Olivia, learning the truth about Peter threatens to tear her apart.
09. Walter BREAKS MY HEART. Don't tell Peter...
10-11. Olivia, as suddenly as she finds the love and stability and autonomy she has always sought it starts to slip from her fingers.
12-13. In an interview, Josh said when Peter finds out the truth it is as if his family died.
14. Olivia, she can be Peter's rock, and that can save them all.

We don't choose our childhood, or our family, or who we love. It happens without our consent.
15. Peter.
16. Walter.
17. Have you seen Little Miss Sunshine? Walter is Olive.
18. My functional dysfunctional family.
19. This is a Jacksonville song.
20-21. Sometimes all I need is the air that I breathe and to love you.
