My H/D song

I've never been one of those people who heard songs and instantly thought of H/D. I always thought the concept of fan mixes was just a little bit stupid, because songs are songs, and they could describe any relationship in the world, so why does it have to be H/D?

Well, I take all of that back, because I just heard the song that immediately made me think, This is so Harry/Draco, and the connection felt so right that I literally started crying.

This is going to sound dorky, but hear me out.

"The Way I Loved You" by Taylor Swift is H/D for me.

I know, I know. Taylor Swift. Manufactured country pop. But for some reason, it feels real to me. It's perfect, really. When I think of H/D, I always imagine Draco ultimately leaving Harry for Astoria because she can give him the family and respectable married life he idealises. This song describes everything I think he'd feel years later when he looks back at what he gave up.

I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
It's 2am and I'm cursing your name

(S)he can't see the smile I'm faking
And my heart's not breaking
Cause I'm not feeling anything at all
And you were wild and crazy
Just so frustrating, intoxicating, complicated

It's like a cross between frayach's "Wings" and pir8fancier's "On One's Knees." A glossy, perfect life with cracks under the surface, desperation that regret has worn down into a hazy memory... guh. *loves*

If anyone is bored and wants to write something for me... *COUGH* :)
