Subtext Songs

Sometimes songs are written that fit perfectly with a certain scene or moment between Xena and Gabrielle...

My little version of 'From This Moment' by Shania Twain. I see it as a duet. The 'moment' is the above picture.

Both:(I do swear that I'll always be there. I'd give anything
and everything and I will always care. Through weakness
and strength, happiness and sorrow, for better, for worse,
I will love you with every beat of my heart.)

Gabrielle:From this moment life has begun
From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong
From this moment on

Xena: From this moment I have been blessed
I live only for your happiness
And for your love I'd give my last breath
From this moment on

Gabrielle: I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can't wait to live my life with you, can't wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams came true because of you

Xena: From this moment as long as I Iive
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn't give
From this moment on

Xena: You're the reason I believe in love
Gabrielle: And you're the answer to my prayers from up above
Both: All we need is just the two of us
My dreams came true because of you

BothFrom this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn't give
From this moment...
Xena:I will love you as long as I live
From this moment on

This one is Wind Beneath My Wings from Bette Midler. I think its the most absolutely perfect song for Xena to sing to Gabrielle in One Against an Army.

It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way,
you always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name -- for so long,
a beautiful smile to hide the pain.

CHORUS: Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and ev'rything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it,
I would be nothing with out you.

(CHORUS) Fly, fly, fly away,
you let me fly so high.
Oh, fly, fly,
so high against the sky, so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you, thank God for you,
the wind beneath my wings.

This one is Don't Wanna Miss a Thing by Aerosmith. It's perfect for when Xena is holding Gabrielle in Been There Done That.

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
Far away and dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Well, every moment spent with you
Is a moment I treasure

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing

Lying close to you
Feeling your heart beating
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming
Wondering if it's me you're seeing
Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we're together
And I just wanna stay with you
In this moment forever, forever and ever

CHORUS

I don't wanna miss one smile
I don't wanna miss one kiss
Well, I just wanna be with you
Right here with you, just like this
I just wanna hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And stay here in this moment
For all the rest of time

CHORUS

I'm not a BBS fan, but 'As Long As You Love Me' fits almost uncannily for Gabrielle at the beginning of the show when she first meets Xena and wants to go with her even though everyone else hates her for her reputation or you could see it as when she first falls in love with Xena and wants Xena to love her back, even though X has been evil. It really is a perfect song for Gabs!!!

Although loneliness has always been a friend of mine
I'm leaving my life in your hands
People say I'm crazy and that I am blind
Risking it all in a glance
And how you got me blind is still a mystery
I can't get you out of my head
Don't care what is written in your history
As long as you're here with me

Chorus:
I don't care who you are
Where you're from
What you did
As long as you love me
Who you are
Where you're from
Don't care what you did
As long as you love me

Every little thing that you have said and done
Feels like it's deep within me
Doesn't really matter if you're on the run
It seems like we're meant to be

Chorus

Bridge:
I've tried to hide it so that no one knows
But I guess it shows
When you look into my eyes
What you did and where you are comin' from
I don't care, as long as you love me, baby.

Chorus

This one is from X to G: "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" -Elton John

There's a calm surrender
To the rush of day
When the heat of the rolling world
Can be turned away
An enchanted moment
And it sees me through
It's enough for this restless warrior
Just to be with you

{Chorus}
Can you feel the love tonight?
It is where we are
It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
That we got this far
And can you feel the love tonight
How it's laid to rest?
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

There's a time for everyone
If they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope
Moves us all in turn
There's a rhyme and reason
To the wild outdoors
When the heart of this star-crossed voyager
Beats in time with yours

{Chorus}

It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

This one just seems to fit the show. Could be between X and G but I think it fits Xena and Lao Ma better: "Dance Between Two Women" -Jewel

Thank you for the flowers you brought me today
And thank you for the kindness you showed me today
No love can be stronger than between two strong women

No man can ever know the dance between two women
We can dance... My lady... May I have this dance?
Thank you for the wisdom the knowing from inside
And thank you for the comfort only a woman can provide
No man can ever know the dance between two women
Love can't be stronger than between two strong women
We can dance... My lady... May I have this dance?
Thank you for the strength without a need for power

And thank you for the rhythym, the sacred circle
Love can't be stronger than between two strong women
No man can ever know the dance between two women
Like you and I
We can dance... My lady... May I have this dance?
