Cersei Lannister

Natalie Imbruglia - Torn

I thought I saw a man brought to life [Ser Robert Strong?]
He was warm, he came around like he was dignified
He showed me what it was to cry
Well you couldn't be that man I adored 
[fallout with Jaime? Jaime burning her letter?]
You don't seem to know, don't seem to care
What your heart is for
No, I don't know him anymore

There's nothin' where we used to lie
Conversation has run dry
That's what's going on
Nothing's fine, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith [Faith of the Seven?]
This is how I feel, I'm cold and I am shamed [Shame! Shame! Shame!]
Lying naked on the floor [Atonement?]
Illusion never changed [Paranoia?]
Into something real
Wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already torn

So I guess the fortune teller's right [Maggy?]
I should have seen just what was there
And not some holy light
But you crawled beneath my veins and now
I don't care, I have no luck
[her own plans working against her]
I don't miss it all that much
There's just so many things
That I can't touch, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel, I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already torn

Torn

There's nothing where he used to lie
My inspiration has run dry
[I guess GRRM needed some inspiration for AFFC & ADWD]
And that's what is goin' on
Nothin's right, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel, I'm cold and I'm ashamed
Bound and broken on the floor
You're a little late
I'm already torn
Torn
Torn

I guess in the music video, the dude is Jaime Lannister.
Perhaps the first short dude that popped up behind Jaime is Tyrion lol!
Any believers in A+J=J&C twins theory? I wonder what a Targaryen-Lannister sigil would look like? Perhaps a golden dragon on a black field?
I really like Natalie's t-shirt.

I just listened to Sting's "Something the Boy Said" for the first time in ages.

When I awoke this morning 
The sun's eye was red as blood 
The stench of burning corpses 
Faces in the mud 
Am I dead or am I living? 
I'm too afraid to care, I'm too afraid to know 
I'm too afraid to look behind me 
At the feast of the crow 
We spoke our fears to the captain 
And asked what his son could know 
For we would never have marched so far 
To be food for a crow

Had to come back here and share it.

Daenerys at the ghost town of Vaes Tolorro:

Other searchers returned with tales of other fruit trees, hidden behind closed doors in secret gardens. Aggo showed her a courtyard overgrown with twisting vines and tiny green grapes, and Jhogo discovered a well where the water was pure and cold. Yet they found bones too, the skulls of the unburied dead, bleached and broken. "Ghosts," Irri muttered. "Terrible ghosts. We must not stay here, Khaleesi, this is their place."
"I fear no ghosts. Dragons are more powerful than ghosts." And figs are more important. "Go with Jhiqui and find me some clean sand for a bath, and trouble me no more with silly talk."

A Clash of Kings - Daenerys I

 

Da na na na naa naa, nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh, da na na na na na naa, nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuhh
Ghostbusters!
[...]
I ain't afraid of no ghosts!

Technically it isn't a modern song ,but a song nonetheless.

Quote

 

The Lion Banner sways and falls in the horror-haunted gloom;

A scarlet Dragon rustles by, borne on winds of doom.

In heaps the shining horsemen lie, where the thrusting lances break,

And deep in the haunted mountains, the lost, black gods awake.

Dead hands grope in the shadows, the stars turn pale with fright,

For this is the Dragon’s Hour, the triumph of Fear and Night.

 

That is quote from Robert E Howard's "The Hour of the Dragon" in The Complete Chronicles of Conan, that I read from list recommended by George RR Martin, and to me it kinda reminds loosely on synopsis of Asoiaf.

I don't know if I'm to late to the party but Ned Stark:

When a blind man cries, by Deep Purple.

Quote

Had a friend once, in a room
Had a good time, but it ended much too soon
In a cold month, in that room
We found a reason, for the things we had to do

Good fibes

For the Many-Faced God, singing to Dany:

"Bridge Over Troubled Water", Simon and Garfunkel

on Amazon Music
 

"Bridge Over Troubled Water"
 

When you're weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all
I'm on your side
Oh when times get rough
And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part
Oh when darkness comes
And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on, silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind


Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
