Fanmix | Supernatural | Dean Winchester/Layla Rourke | The Fragile  
Layla Rourke was a one-shot character in the season one episode 'Faith', played by Julie Benz (the fabulous Darla of Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Layla was a woman stricken with a brain tumor that Dean and Sam met while they were in Nebraska, seeking healing for Dean from a faith healer. I refer you to Super-wiki for a more in-depth and detailed description of the episode. They've done a much better job than I ever could.

She was only around for one episode, but Layla made a fairly lasting impression on me. She had a grace and a strength that was the product of subtle writing and wonderful acting on the part of Julie Benz. And she had such powerful chemistry with Jensen – especially in their final scene together – that I have been obsessed with the idea of the pairing for quite a long time.

It's that obsession that has lead me to attempt my first fanmix. I hope it doesn’t show too much that I’ve never done this before, and I hope you like it.







1. DON’T FEAR THE REAPER – BLUE OYSTER CULT

All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
The Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain
Oh, We can be like they are

Come on baby... Don't fear the Reaper
Baby take my hand... Don't fear the Reaper
We'll be able to fly... Don't fear the Reaper
Baby I'm your man...

2. LAYLA – ERIC CLAPTON

Layla, you got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging darlin' please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind?

3. THE FRAGILE – NINE INCH NAILS

She shines
in a world full of ugliness
She matters
when everything is meaningless

Fragile
She doesn't see her beauty
She tries to get away
Sometimes
it's just that nothing seems worth saving
I can't watch her slip away

4. DELICATE – DAMIEN RICE

We might live like never before
When there's nothing to give
Well how can we ask for more
We might make love in some sacred place
The look on your face is delicate

5. THANK YOU – LED ZEPPELIN

If the sun refused to shine,
I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea,
there will still be you and me.

Kind woman, I give you my all,
Kind woman, nothing more.

Little drops of rain whisper of the pain,
tears of loves lost in the days gone by.
My love is strong, with you there is no wrong,
together we shall go until we die.

6. STORM – LIFEHOUSE

If I could just see you
Everything would be all right
If I'd see you
This darkness would turn to light

And I will walk on water
And you will catch me if I fall
And I will get lost into your eyes
I know everything will be alright
I know everything is alright

7. THIS WOMAN’S WORK – KATE BUSH

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking

Of all the things I should've said,
That I never said.
All the things we should've done,
Though we never did.
All the things I should've given,
But I didn't.

8. I WILL FOLLOW YOU INTO THE DARK – DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE

Love of mine
Someday you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark
No blinding lights or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of the spark

If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

9. EACH COMING NIGHT – IRON & WINE

Will you say to me when I’m gone
"Your face has faded but lingers on
Because light strikes a deal with each coming night"
