Veronica Mars - LoVe - Worth Repeating

A very quickly whipped up mix about Veronica Mars and Logan Echolls. Focuses on season 1 and early season 2, as season 3 LoVe annoys me to no end.

Anyway. It's all in Logan's POV. And as I said, this is a mixed I used no more than an hour on. I didn't make the coverart, though. Sorry about that.

Gravity The Fold [full lyrics ; download]

After Logan's mother dies, Logan is pretty much a wreck. A wreck in denial. So he comes to Veronica for help, wanting her to investigate because he doesn't think his mother is actually dead. In the end, the investigations gives no results, other than making Logan and Veronica bury the hatchet - leading up to the kiss and the discovery that there might be something more than just a possible friendship between them.

Let’s start at the beginning of this story
I was just a boy with nowhere to call home

There I was building houses on the sand
I could see that I was only running circles in my mind
It just goes on and on and on until it finally catches up to me
Like gravity it takes me round and turns me upside down

That’s when it all came screaming back

Just like gravity, what draws you to me
Someone I didn’t know I needed
It’s like gravity, and it’s stronger than me
I need you here

Momentary Thing Something Happens [full lyrics ; download]

The song played during first the kiss. The last part pretty much sums them up completely, neither of them having any idea what they're doing or why, but knowing that they'll get along again, after so long.

After all, well isn't this just a momentary thing?
It's not like I expected it,
Or any heavy thing


.three.
Dirty Little Secret The All-American Rejects [full lyrics ; download]

"Do you think this will ever get more normal?"
"What, like will we ever hang at the mall and hold hands and buy each other teddy bears with hearts that say 'I wuv you bear-y much'?"
"Exactly that, only I want my bear won in some sort of demonstration of ring toss ability."
"Well, secrets are kinda hot too."

Who has to know
When we live such fragile lives
It's the best way we survive
I go around a time or two
Just to waste my time with you

Tell me all that you've thrown away
Find out games you don't wanna play
You are the only one that needs to know

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
(Dirty little secret)
Don't tell anyone or you'll be just another regret
(Just another regret, hope that you can keep it)
My dirty little secret

All That We Needed Plain White T’s [full lyrics ; download]

It's all very on-again/off-again with these two, and even though Logan doesn't really know what's going on from time to time, he does knows he isn't gonna give up that easily.
(Not that Veronica, in season 1, doesn't have good reasons to back out of it)

You'd say we were just a big mistake.
I think it's worth making, worth repeating.
I would say good things come to those who wait
I would say anything if you'd believe it.

Oh no, don't let me go for this, don't let me go for this.

I might be a fool, you might be one too.
Maybe we're all that we needed.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but I don't care tonight.
Maybe we're all that we needed.


.five.
Hands Down Dashboard Confessional [full lyrics ; download]

After Logan is cleared for Lilly's murder, it's all good with the two of them again...

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me
So won't you kill me, so I die happy
My heart is yours to fill or burst, to break or bury
or wear as jewelery, which ever you prefer


.six.
Up Against the Wall Boys Like Girls [full lyrics ; download]

...until Veronica's had it with Logan being an ass all the time and breaks up with him.

"My mom is dead! My girlfriend is dead! My dad is a murderer! And the only person I still care about is dumping me!"

It's over, look out below
I'm wasted, I still taste it
Yeah it's so hard to let go
So breathe in now, and breathe it out

The forecast; A car crash
It's looking like another

Breakdown, rebound
This could be my last goodbye
You cross your heart, I hope to die

And I can't deny your eyes
You know I try to read between the lines,
I saw a warning sign
And then you threw me up against the wall
Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
I wish that I had never loved at all


.seven.
Evil And A Heathen Franz Ferdinand [full lyrics ; download]

In season 2, there are many examples of Veronica being disbelieving that Logan can do the things he does (i.e. sleeping with Kendall and using Hannah), so you could interpret the "evil" part as that. It can also be interpreted as the two of them saying cruel things to each other most of the time, but the fact is they're clearly not over each other.

Well I'm evil and a heathen
I'm evil and a heathen
Well I'm a heathen and evil like you
There's not a lot
Not a lot I couldn't do

I like how you pretend
That the end will be the end


.eight.
Mr. Brightside The Killers [full lyrics ; download]

Logan having to watch while Veronica goes back to Duncan.

I just can’t look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it’s just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside


.nine.
Swing Swing The All-American Rejects [full lyrics ; download]

Days swiftly come and go
I’m dreaming of her
She's seeing other guys
Emotions they stir

(…)

Swing, swing from the tangles of my heart
Is crushed by a former love
Can you help me find a way
to carry on again?


.ten.
Nancy Drew Relient K [full lyrics ; download]

I got this thing for Nancy Drew.
Her hair is blonde her eyes are blue.
Yeah, I think that I'm falling in love.



Notes: The last song isn't supposed to be taken all that seriously :p

Also, I tried my best to avoid Momentary Thing. It's used in practically every mix, but it is the closest thing to their song.
