Get the roaring soundtrack to Season 3, Episode 3, “The End of the Affair” below.
Song: "Distance" Artist: Christina Perri Music moment: Elena wakes up with Damon Lyrics: The sun is filling up the room,
And I can hear you dreaming
Do you feel the way I do, right now?
I wish we would just give up,
‘Cause the best part is falling
Calling anything but love
And I will make sure you keep my distance
Say I love you when you’re not listening,
How long, can we keep this up, up, up?
Please don’t stand so close to me
I’m having trouble breathing
I’m afraid of what you’ll see right now
Song: "Run Wild" Artist: Ume Music moment: Damon finds out Klaus and Stefan are running an errand for Gloria Lyrics: Could you grant you wish? To be cageless To long to be free And enamored always Run towards the west To be ageless Chance is you won’t get What is left to chance All rise Follow through On the loose Caught in crossfire Lost in fireworks Run girl
Song: "My Sweet Hunk O' Trash" Artist: Gloria's 1920's Band Music moment: Rebekah scolds Stefan because she wants to listen to Gloria sing Lyrics: You don't add up to much, Ain't got that glamour touch, You're trifling lazy and worth a cigarette ash! You're just my good for nothin', My sweet hunk o' trash! You're very short on looks, (Hear hear hear!) Dumb when it comes to books, And you stay full of corn just like succotash! You’re just a good for nothin', But my sweet hunk o' trash!
Song: "You Should Know" Artist: Pink Frost Music moment: Damon and Elena drive to Chicago Lyrics: How does it feel, how does it feel?
Song: "Kale" Artist: Nerves Junior Music moment: Damon tells Klaus, “Honey, I’ve been called worse” Lyrics: I miss you
Broken glass jars of jelly jam
To get through breakfast
Sticky cottons on an unmade bed
Plastics will last forever
Isn’t that a lullaby
Brown sugar, cinnamon
A matchbox hiding place
Wipe the poor tears on my sleeve
Learn to leave it up to me
I put you in a jacket and your brown shoes
Practice speaking normally, I can’t handle it
Can’t we just put it away? But now I can’t handle it
Song: "Shelter" (The xx Cover) Artist: Birdy Music moment: Caroline cries to Tyler that her father hates her Lyrics: I find shelter in this way Under cover, hide away Can you hear when I say I have never felt this way Maybe I had said something that was wrong Can I make it better with the lights turned on Maybe I had said something that was wrong Can I make it better with the lights turned on Could I be, was I there It felt so crystal in the air I still want to drown whenever you leave Please teach me gently how to breathe And I'll cross oceans like never before So you can feel the way I feel it too And I'll mirror images back at you So you can see the way I feel it too Maybe I had said something that was wrong Can I make it better with the lights turned on
