Epic Love: an Elizabeth & Edward Mix  
I've had this mix on the go for awhile so it's nice to finally have it ready! I've been obsessed with the history of The Wars of the Roses for almost three years, now, and I especially love Elizabeth Woodville and Edward IV. Now with the BBC's "The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses" coming up, and Channel 5's documentary "Britain's Bloody Crown" that is currently airing, it seems particularly fitting to post my little tribute to one of my favourite couples.

01. Be My Light — Mychael & Jeff Dana (from "Camelot")
And if the storm
Howls through our land
I'll be your shelter
If you'll be my light
And if the world
Should fall to winter
I'll be your warmth
If you'll be my light
And if the skies
Should cloud to darkness
I'll be your sun
If you'll be my light

02. In My Veins — Andrew Belle ft. Erin McCarley
Oh, you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out
Oh, you're all I taste
At night inside of my mouth
Oh, you run away
'Cause I am not what you found
Oh, you're in my veins
And I cannot get you out

03. The Bridegroom - Rivers & Robots
I have come to the garden
To find you here...
Do you know that
You have ravished my heart?
Yes, you have ravished my heart
With one glance of your eye

04. Cosmic Love - Florence + the Machine
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

05. Coronation - John Lunn (from "The White Queen")

06. Magic - Leagues
You and me we got something magic
You and me we got something real
You and me we got something magic
You and me we got something still
Everyday, everyday, everyday I feel it

07. Woman of the City - Joy Williams
You are a fading
You are a hundred spires
You are slamming stained-glass doors
You are clenched fists
And tears that slipped
Through the cracks in the floor
You are the most complicated woman of a city
You are the most complicated woman of a city

08. Thornton's Walk - Martin Phipps (from "North and South")

09. Gone Too Long - Churchill
I just want to feel your heart beat
Kick drumming down my house
I just gotta hear that soul leap
Out of your mouth, out of your mouth
I don't know what went wrong
But you've been gone way too long
Way too long, way too long

10. Return to Me - John Lunn (from "The White Queen")

11. Prayer to Saint Michael - Bear McCreary ft. Raya Yarborough (from "DaVinci's Demons")

12. Cold Cold Water - Mirah
Now I suffer for your hungry eye
Oh why must it see more than mine?
It's a light you're after, 'cause light moves faster
But when I ride again into the night
My torch will shoot flames strong and bright
And my absence will remind you of
How tough it is to be in love

13. The Virgin Queen - Martin Phipps (from "The Virgin Queen")
Some gentler love doth ease itself
Into my heart and mind
For I am soft and made of snow
Love, be more cruel or so be kind

14. In Love - Jon Foreman
In love, in love, in life, in love
In you, in love, in death, my love
In time, in love, in place, in love
In form, in love, in death, my love

15. You Never Know - Goldfrapp
Here we go again
We're going round and round
Here we go again
We're going round and round

16. Wild Hope - Mandy Moore
I catch a glimpse of our reflection
Beside you I see myself
We are the season's new collection
We look like everybody else

17. Fire in the Water - Feist
Love's the sweetest feeling
Openly believing
No matter what we find there
Come back in through the eyes there
Sole and born creation
The lion's in the house
Flowers are up in the air
Crashing against the dark

18. Timshel - Mumford & Sons
And you are the mother
The mother of your baby child
The one to whom you gave life
And you have your choices
And these are what make man great
His ladder to the stars

19. What the Water Gave Me - Florence + the Machine
‘Cause they took your loved ones
But returned them in exchange for you
But would you have it any other way?
You couldn't have it any other way
‘Cause she’s a cruel mistress
And a bargain must be made
But oh, my love, don’t forget me
When I let the water take me

20. Two Mothers - Andy Price (from "Robin Hood")

21. Floki's Fire - Trevor Morris (from "Vikings")

22. The Three Ravens - Theme from "New Worlds"
She got him up upon her backe
And carried him to earthen lake
She buried him before the prime
She was dead her self ere euen-song time
God send euery gentleman
Such haukes, such hounds, and such a Leman
