Hey Blogclanners! Since so many of you liked my first Songs That Relate To Warriors article, I decided to do a part two! I hope you like it!
P.S. Because most of the songs in my last article were happy and upbeat, I chose some sad songs for Part 2. Sorry if you cry your eyes out while reading this.

1. That’s My Lullaby
This song is from the Lion King 2. Zira is singing to Kovu about the vengeance she will wreak on the Pride Lands. I can just imagine Tigerstar singing this to Brambleclaw with creepy shadows surrounding them *shivers*.

Tigerstar: Sleep my little Bramblekit
Let your dreams take wing
One day when you’re big and strong
You will be a leader
Bramblekit: Good night…..
Tigerstar: Good night my little warrior
Tomorrow your training intensifies
I’ve been exiled, persecuted
Left alone with no defense
When I think of what that brute did
I get a little tense
But I dream a dream so pretty
That I don’t feel so depressed
‘Cause it soothes my inner kitty
And it helps me get some rest
The sound of Fireheart’s dying gasp
His apprentice squealing in my grasp
ThunderClan’s mournful cry
That’s my lullaby
Now the past I’ve tried forgetting
And my foes I could forgive
Trouble is, I know it’s petty
But I hate to let them live
Darkstripe: So you found yourself somebody who’d chase Fireheart up a tree
Tigerstar: Oh, the battle may be bloody, but that kind of works for me
The melody of angry growls
A counterpoint of painful howls
A symphony of death, oh my
That’s my lullaby
Thistleclaw’s gone…. But Tigerstar’s still around
To love this little kit
Till he learns to be a killer
With a lust for being bad
Darkstripe: Sleep, ya little termite
Uh- I mean, precious little thing
Blackfoot: One day when you’re big and strong
Tigerstar: You will be a leader
The pounding of the drums of war
The thrill of Bramblestar’s might roar
Darkstripe: The joy of vengeance
Blackfoot: Testify
Tigerstar: I can hear the cheering
Darkstripe and Blackfoot: Bramblestar, what a cat!
Tigerstar: Payback time is nearing
And then our flag will fly
Against a blood-red sky
That’s my lullaby! *evil laughter*

2. You’ll be In My Heart
This song is from Tarzan. When my little sisters were watching the movie the other day, I thought, “Wow! This is perfect for Gray Wing and Thunder!”. I imagine Gray Wing singing this to Thunder when he takes Thunder back to the camp after Clear Sky’s rejection.

Gray Wing: Come, stop your crying
It will be alright
Just take my paw
Hold it tight
I will protect you
From all around you
I will be here, don’t you cry
Gray Wing: *looks at Thunder, running around the camp*
For one so small
You seem so strong
My nest will hold you
Keep you safe and warm
This bond between us
Can’t be broken
I will be here, don’t you cry
Gray Wing: *watches Thunder leave with Clear Sky*
‘Cause you’ll be in my heart
Yes you’ll be in my heart
No matter what they say
From this day on
Now and forever more
Gray Wing as he’s dying: *gazes at the strong cat Thunder has become*
You’ll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You’ll be here in my heart
Always
Gray Wing’s spirit: *whispers* Always

3. My One Last Hope
This song is from Disney’s Hercules. The trainer satyr, Phil, sings this one to Hercules as he is training. This one would be for Lionheart, Whitestorm, and Tigerclaw as they are training Graypaw, Ravenpaw, Firepaw, and Sandpaw.

Lionheart: So you want to be a warrior kid?
Well, whoop-de-do
Tigerclaw: I have been around the block before
With blockheads just like you
Whitestorm: Each and everyone a disappointment
*Sandpaw steps on Whitestorm’s tail*
PAIN!!!!!!!!!
For which there ain’t no ointment
Tigerclaw: So much for excuses
He’s a kittypet
Asking me to jump into the fray
My answer is two words
Bluestar: *glares*
Tigerclaw: O.K.
Tigerclaw: You win
Firepaw: *whoops* Yessssss
Tigerclaw: Oh, StarClan
Graypaw: This is awesome! When can we start? Can we start now?!
Tigerclaw: Oy vey
Lionheart: I’d given up hope that someone would come along
An apprentice who dive right in
Who would truly belong
Tigerclaw: The kind who aren’t cliche
Won’t settle for delay
I don’t teach strays
But nooooooooooooo, I get the greenhorn
Whitestorm: I’ve been a warrior long, my ambition gone
Content to spend lazy days, and graze for prey
But you need an advisor
A warrior but wiser
A good analyzer
*Graypaw falls out of a tree and lands on Whitestorm*
AND WHOOOOAAAAHHHHH!!!!
There goes my ulcer
Lionheart: I’m down to one last hope
And I hope it’s you
Tigerclaw: Though, kid, you’re not exactly
A dream come true
Whitestorm: I’ve trained enough turkeys
Who never came through
All three: You’re my one last hope
So you’ll have to do
Lionheart: Rule #99, kid! When rescuing a she-cat, ALWAYS HANDLE WITH CARE!!!!!
*Ravenpaw runs after a mouse, but crashes into a tree instead*
Tigerclaw: Rule #34! AIM!!!!
Lionheart: Warrior toms who faced the odds
And ended up a mockery
Tigerclaw: Don’t believe that stories that
You hear from all the elders
Whitestorm: To be a true hero, kid, is a dying art
Like painting a masterpiece, it’s a work of heart
Tigerclaw: It takes more than sinew
Comes down to what’s in you
Lionheart: You have to continue to grow
*Graypaw catches a squirrel*
Now that’s more like it!
Whitestorm: I’m down to one last shot
And my last high note
Tigerclaw: Before that blasted StarClan
Gets this cat
Lionheart: My dreams are on you, kid
Go make ‘em come true
Climb that uphill slope
Whitestorm: Keep pushing that envelope
Tigerclaw: You’re my one last hope
All three: And, kid, it’s up to you!

4. Burn
This song is from my favorite musical of all time, Hamilton. It is sung by Eliza after, SPOILER ALERT






Alexander cheats on her. I instantly think of Nightcloud whenever I hear this song. There is so much emotion packed into this song, and I can’t even imagine all of the turbulent feelings Nightcloud must have felt, after Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf were revealed to be Crowfeather and Leafpool’s kits.

Nightcloud: I savored every kind word you said to me
From the moment I heard them
I knew you were mine
You said you were mine
I thought you were mine

Do you know what Whitetail said
When you became my mate
She said, be careful with that one, love
He will do what it takes to survive

You and your words flooded my senses
Your sentences left me defenseless
You built me whole camps out of paragraphs
You made a sunset

I’m remembering all the time I spent with you
I’m searching and scanning for answers in every line
For some kind of sign
And when you were mine

The world seemed to burn
Burn

You confessed everything she said to you
You told the whole world how brought this cat into your nest
And in clearing your name
You have ruined our lives

Do you know what Whitetail said
When she heard what you’d done
She said, you’ve mated with a bird
Who has flown too close to the sun

You and your words obsessed with your legacy
Your sentences border on senseless
And you are paranoid at every paragraph
About how they perceive you
You, you, you……..

I’m erasing myself from the narrative
Let future cats wonder how Nightcloud reacted
When you broke her heart
You have torn it all apart

I’m watching it burn
Watching it burn

The Clans have no right to my heart
The Clans have no place in our nest
They don’t get to know what I said
I’m burning the memories
Burning everything that might have redeemed you

You forfeit all right to my heart
You forfeit the place in our nest
You’ll sleep in your own nest instead
With only the memories of when you were mine

I hope that you burn

5. Go the Distance
This is another song from Disney’s Hercules. Hercules sings it while fantasizing about being a true hero. I thought it would be a good match for Shadowsight, because all he wants to do is to be a good medicine cat and Clanmate.

Shadowsight as an apprentice: I have often dreamed of a far off place
Where a great warm welcome would be waiting for me
Where the cats would cheer, when they see my face
And a voice keeps saying, this is where I’m meant to be
I will find my way
I can go the distance
I’ll be there someday
If I can be strong
I know every mile
Will be worth my while
I would go most anywhere
To feel like I belong
Shadowsight on the way to the Moonpool: I am on my way
I can go the distance
I don’t care how far
Somehow I’ll be strong
I know every mile
Will be worth my while
I would go most anywhere
To find where I belong
Shadowsight in the Dark Forest: I will beat the odds
I can go the distance
I will face the world
Fearless, proud, and strong
I will please my father
I can go the distance
Till I find my hero’s welcome
Right where I belong

5. Dancing With Your Ghost
This song, by Sasha Sloan is a true tearjerker. The person in the song is singing about her lost lover, and is grappling with her feelings of loss and grief. Every word in this song reminds me of Spotfur thinking of Stemleaf. *starts crying*

Spotfur: Yelling at the sky
Screaming at the world
Baby, why’d you go away
I’m still your mate
Holdin’ on to tight
Head up in the clouds
StarClan only knows
Where you are now

How do I love
How do I love again
How do I trust
How do I trust again

I stay up all night
Tell myself I’m alright
Baby, you’re just harder to see than most
I walk the forest alone
Wait till’ I reach our spot
Every night I dancing with your ghost

Never got the chance
To say a last goodbye
I gotta move on
But it hurts to try

How do I love
How do I love again
How do I trust
How do I trust again

I stay up all night
Tell myself I’m alright
Baby, you’re just harder to see than most
I walk the forest alone
Wait till’ I find our spot
Every night I’m dancing with your ghost

How do I love
How do I love again
How do I trust
How do I trust again

I stay up all night
Tell myself I’m alright
Baby, you’re just harder to see than most
I walk the forest alone
Wait till’ I find our spot
Every night I’m dancing with your ghost
Every night I’m dancing with your ghost
Every night I’m dancing with your ghost

8. Waiting on a Miracle
I FINALLY got around to watching Encanto, and I really liked it. My little sisters have been listening to the soundtrack non-stop, and I thought that this song would be perfect for Ivypool. She sees her sister, Dovewing, getting all of the praise, and doing all of the things that she feels like she can’t do. She just wants to make her Clan proud, and be as good as her sister.

Ivypool while Dovewing leaves on the quest: Don’t be upset or mad at all
Don’t feel regret or sad at all
Hey, I’m still a part of ThunderClan
And I’m fine, I am totally fine
I will stand on the side as you shine
I’m not fine, I’m not fine

Ivypool as she watches her Clanmates: I can’t move the mountains
I can’t make the flowers bloom
I can’t take another night there in my den
Waiting on a miracle

I can’t heal what’s broken
Can’t control the spring breeze or the morning rain
Can’t keep down the unspoken, invisible pain
Always waiting on a miracle, a miracle

Ivypool padding through the forest: Always walking alone
Always wanting for more
Like I’m still at that stone longing to shine
Like all of you shine

All I need a change
All I need is a chance
All I know is I can’t stay on the side
Open your eyes, open your eyes, open your eyes

I would move the mountains
Make new trees and flowers grow
Someone please just let me know, where can I go?
I am waiting on a miracle, a miracle

I would heal what’s broken
Show this Clan something new
Who I am inside, so what can I do?
I’m sick of waiting on a miracle, so here I go!

I am ready, come on, I’m ready!
I’ve been patient and steadfast and steady
*looks up at the stars*
Bless me now as you blessed us all those years ago
When you gave us a miracle
*sighs*
Am I too late for a miracle

9. Here I am
This song is by one of my favorite musicians, Bryan Adams. It would be for Firestar and Sandstorm after the battle with BloodClan. I think it really encapsulates the emotions they felt in the aftermath of that battle.

Firestar: Here I am, this is me
There’s nowhere else on earth I’d rather be
Here I am, it’s just me and you
Tonight we make our dreams come true
Both: It’s a new world, it’s a new start
It’s alive with the beating of young hearts
It’s a new day, it’s a new plan
I’ve been waiting for you
Here I am

Sandstorm: Here we are, we’ve just begun
And after all this time, our time has come
Yeah, here we are, still goin’ strong
Right here in the place where we belong

Both: It’s a new world, it’s a new start
It’s alive with the beating of young hearts
It’s a new day, it’s a new plan
I’ve been waiting for you
Here I am
Yeah, here I am
Waiting for you!

Firestar: Here I am, this is me

Sandstorm: There’s nowhere else on earth I’d rather be

Firestar: Here I am, just me and you

Sandstorm: Tonight, we make our dreams come true

Both: It’s a new world, it’s a new start
It’s alive with the beating of young hearts
It’s a new day, it’s a new plan
I’ve been waiting for you
(waiting, waiting, waiting)
It’s a new world, it’s a new start
It’s alive with the beating of young hearts
It’s a new day, it’s a new plan
I’ve been waiting for you
(waiting, waiting, waiting)
Here I am
(Here I am)
Here I am
(Here I am)
Here I am
(Here I am)
Right next to you
(Here I am)
And suddenly the world is all brand new
Here I am
(Here I am)
Here I am
(Here I am)
I’m gonna stay
Now, there’s nothing standing in our way
Here I am
Here I am, this is me
