Hello fellow Blogclanners!  Meadowpaw is back with her 2nd article!  While listening to music (as I often do) I found some songs that I imagine would be perfect as warrior cat songs!  Hope you enjoy! (Sorry for the tear jerker at the end!)

  1. Can you Feel the Love Tonight

This song is from the Lion King.  It is when Simba and Nala fall in love.  I thought that it would be perfect for Firestar and Sandstorm!  Graystripe and Cinderpelt play Timon and Pumba.

Graystripe:  I can see what’s happening
Cinderpelt: What
Graystripe: And they don’t have a clue
Cinderpelt: Who
Graystripe: They’ll fall in love and here’s the bottom line, our trio’s down to two.
Cinderpelt: Oh
Graystripe: The sweet caress of twilight
There’s magic everywhere
And with all this romantic atmosphere
Disaster’s in the air
Thunderclan: Can you feel the love tonight
The peace the evening brings
The world for once, in perfect harmony
With all its living things
Firestar: So many things to tell her
But how to make her see
The truth about my past
Impossible
She’d turn away from me
Sandstorm: He’s holding back
He’s hiding
But what I can’t decide
Why won’t he be the leader I know he is
Leader I see inside
Thunderclan: Can you feel the love tonight
The peace the evening brings
The world for once, in perfect harmony
With all its living things
Can you feel the love tonight
You needn’t look too far
Stealing through the night’s uncertainties
Love is where they are
Graystripe: And if he falls in love tonight *sniffles*
Cinderpelt: It can be assumed
Graystripe: His carefree days with us are history
Graystripe and Cinderpelt: In short our pal is doomed!  Waaaaaaaaaaa

  1. Sing the day

This one was supposed to be in Bambi 2 (my sisters forced me to listen to the soundtrack) but was cut.  I thought that it would fit perfectly for Cinderpaw and Fireheart when Cinderpaw is first apprenticed.

Cinderpaw: Listen there’s something calling to you
Sing the day, oh hey
There’s a voice inside like a rising tide that will never go away
Come and sing the day, oh hey, oh hey
Sing, sing the day!
Fireheart: Cinderpaw!  Slow down!  Wait for me!
Cinderpaw: Sing it, la, la, la, la, la
Give a yip and growl, give a yowl and a roar
Give a hoot and a howl, what a world to explore!
And the key you sing opens every door
Oh hey, sing the day
Fireheart: Cinderpaw!  Be careful!  Don’t fall in the river!
Cinderpaw: What do you do with the day so new
Sing the day, oh hey
Hear the sparrow call, hear the waterfall!
Fireheart in the background: Not the gorge!
Cinderpaw: All the world wants to have its say!
Can you sing the day?
Oh hey, oh hey
Sing, sing the day
(Oh sing the day!)
Sing, sing the day
Fireheart: Cinderpaw!  Watch out for that Shadowclan patrol!  *Cinderpaw dashes past without noticing and Fireheart comes face to face with the patrol* Oh!  Hey guys!  *smiles nervously* If you’ll excuse us.  Cinderpaw!
Cinderpaw: Singing
La, la, la,la
Almost
La, la, la, la
Nearly
La, la, la, la
Kinda ready
Can you hear the day?
Singing
La, la, la,la
Beauty
La,la,la,la
Stronger
La,la,la,la
Getting braver
Can you sing the day?
Forest animals: Oh hey hey hey hey
Can you sing, sing the day
Cinderpaw and forest animals: Sing, sing the day
Sing, sing the day
Sing, sing the day
Sing, sing the day
Cinderpaw and forest animals: Hey! Hey! Hey
Sing, sing the day!

  1. A Whole New World

This song is from Aladdin.  It is when Aladdin takes Jasmine on a magic carpet ride.  As much as I hate Dovewing and Tigerstar 2 (see my previous article) their romance needs a song.  I thought that this would work well during one of their nighttime meetings.

Tigerheart: I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering splendid
Tell me Dovepaw, now when did you last let your heart decide
I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under on a magic carpet ride
A whole new world!
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming
Dovewing: A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I’m way up here
Its crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you.
Tigerheart: Now I’m in a whole new world!
Dovewing: Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky
A whole new world!
Tigerheart: Don’t you dare close your eyes!
Dovewing: A hundred moons of things to see!
Tigerheart: Hold your breath, it gets better
Dovewing: I’m like a shooting star!  I’ve come so far!  I can’t go back to where I used to be!
Tigerheart: A whole new world!
Dovewing: Every turn a surprise!
Tigerheart: With new horizons to pursue!
Dovewing: Every moment red-letter!
Both:  I’ll chase them everywhere!  There’s time to spare!  Let me share this whole new world with you!
Tigerheart: A whole new world
Dovewing: A whole new world
Tigerheart: That’s where we’ll be
Dovewing: That’s where we’ll be
Tigerheart: A thrilling chase
Dovewing: A wondrous place
Both: For you and me

  1. Through Your Eyes

This is another song from Bambi 2 *smiles sheepishly*  This one would be for Cinderheart and Lionblaze.  I imagine them singing this song when they are running through the forest on one of their nighttime walks.

Cinderheart: Look at that cloud
As high as a tree
At least that’s how it looks to me
How ‘bout you?
What do you see?
What if we see things differently?
Both:  Show me, how the world looks through your eyes
Tell me ‘bout the sunrise!
Let me see the stars shine!
Show me how the world looks through your eyes!
And I can show you how it looks through mine!
Lionblaze: If I had wings
And I could fly
I would tell you all about the sky
How ‘bout you?
If dreams came true
What do you imagine you could do?
Both: Show me how the world looks through your eyes.
(Through your eyes)
Tell me ‘bout the sunrise
Let me see the stars shine
Show me how the world looks through your eyes
And I could show you how I looks through mine
Lionblaze: And I could show you secret trails where no one’s ever gone
Cinderheart: I bet you have secrets too, so don’t be shy, come on, come
On, come on, come on and
Both: Show me how the world looks through your eyes
Tell me ‘bout the sunrise
Let me see the stars shine
Show me how the world looks through your eyes
And I can show you how
Let me show you how it looks through mine

  1. My Best Friend’s Girl

I’ve been raised on 70’s and 80’s music.  This song, by the Cars, is one of my favorites.  This one would be for Ashfur after Squirrelflight dumped him for Brambleclaw.

Ashfur: You’re always dancing
Down the trail
With your suede green eyes
And every tom you meet
He doesn’t know the real surprise
(Here she comes again)
When she’s dancing
‘Neath the starry sky
Ooh, she’ll make you flip
(Here she comes again)
‘Neath the starry sky
I kinda like the way she dips

She’s my best friend’s girl
She’s my best friend’s girl
But she used to be mine

You’ve got your freshly washed pelt
And your neatly groomed paws
Ooh, when you bite your lip
It’s some reaction to
Love, oh..love, oh..love

(Here she comes again)
When she’s dancing
‘Neath the starry sky
Ooh, she’ll make you flip
(Here she comes again)
‘Neath the starry sky
I kinda like the way she dips

‘Cause she’s my best friend’s girl
Well, she’s my best friend’s girl
And she used to be mine
She’s so fine

Your always dancing
Down the trail
With your suede green eye..eyes
And every tom you meet
Doesn’t know the real surprise
(Here she comes again)
When she’s dancing
‘Neath the starry sky
Ooh, she’ll make you flip
(Here she comes again)
‘Neath the starry sky
I kinda like the way she dips

‘Cause she’s my best friend’s girl, uh
She’s my best friend’s girl
She used to be mine
She’s so fine

(My best friend’s mate)
Oh
(My best friend’s mate)
She used to be mine
(My best friend’s mate)
Yeah, yeah
(My best friend’s mate)
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
(My best friend’s mate)
She used to be mine

  1. We are One

This song is from the Lion King 2.  It is sung after Kiara meets Kovu, and is taken away by her father.  Simba sings to his daughter about how in the Pride Lands they are one.  This would be for Firestar talking when he’s talking to Squirrelpaw.

Firestar: As you go through life you’ll see
There is so much that we
Don’t understand
And the only thing we know
Is things don’t always go
The way we planned
When it seems all your dreams come undone
We are more than we are
We are one
Squirrelpaw *looking down at her reflection in a puddle*: If there’s so much I must be
Can I still just be me
The way I am
Can I trust in my own heart
Or am I just one part
Of some big plan
Firestar: Your journey has only begun
Is our pride deep inside
We are one
Firestar and Thunderclan: Clanmates, clanmates we are one
Clanmate, clanmates we are one
One family under the sun
You will find when you see, we are one
Clanmates, clanmates we are one
Clanmates, clanmates we are one
Clanmates, clanmates we are one
Clanmates, clanmates we are one
Clanmates, clanmates we are one
Clanmates, clanmates we are one
Clanmates, clanmates we are one!

  1. A Thousand Years

I’m not going to lie, I hated the way A Light in the Mist ended.  I cried for an hour when Bristlefrost died.  I felt so bad for Rootspring when he realized that he would NEVER see the love of his life again.  She would only be a memory.  The touch of her pelt, the sound of her voice are all just a memory to him now.  But Rootspring will remember and love her for a thousand years.  This song by Christina Perri ALWAYS makes me cry when I hear it.  But when I was listening to it the other day, it clicked for me.  This is perfect for Rootspring.  The chorus is Rootspring in the present, talking to Bristlefrost, hoping that somehow she can hear him.

Rootspring in the DF: Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt, suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer

Rootspring in the present: I have died every day, waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Rootspring on the Sisters quest with Bristlefrost: Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything, take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath, every hour has come to this
One step closer

Rootspring in the present: I have died every day, waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

I have died every day waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me, I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

    • Amazing article Meadow! You’ve inspired me to write a song article too! But….. Bristlefrost died?! *Sobs*😢 A- And awesome s- songs by the way.

  • Hollyleaf gives me Alien Blues vibes
    “My teeth are yellow, hello world” She is the only one of her siblings who does not have a power and is left in their shadows because of it.
    “Would you like me a little better if they were white like yours?” She’s comparing herself to her brothers, wondering if she would get attention if she had a power.
    “I need to purge my urges, shame, shame, shame,” She killed Ashfur when she was out of her usual state of mind. Furious at him and herself, she lets the news of who her, Lionblaze’s, and Jayfeather’s real parents are slip out, and I’m pretty sure she did regret it after
    “I need an alibi to justify, somebody to blame” This could either be about her hiding the fact that she killed Ashfur or her blaming herself for possibly getting the Clans to hate her and her siblings instead of just ignoring them like they ignored her.

  • I’m in absolute and utter shock. I’m almost done with a light in the mist *sobbing (Tʖ̯T)*
    I l-love t-the son-ngs you chose

  • Also, tnp gives me white shadows videos:
    Little white shadows blink and miss them, it’s perfect for when Firestar is mad at squilf and Brambleboy
    Part of a system a plan(clan),
    like when they meet the tribe and Stormfur finds where he belongs and has a hard time leaving them behind
    In a permanent state,
    When Stormboy stays behind with the tribe instead of going to the lake with the clans.

  • I love the way how Rootspring just kinda became depressed after his love died- kinda reminds me of Dustpelt and Ferncloud to be honest.
