Will and Jem Song

 *****TID SPOILERS*****

I heard a song a while ago that describes the relationship between Jem and Will to a T. It is called “Circles”, written by Passenger. You may know him from “Let Her Go”, which was popular last year (You only need the light when it’s burning low, only miss the sun when it starts to snow, only know you love her when you let her go). Anyway, even the title “Circles” reminds me of them, for Jem believes we live in circles. He believes we die and undergo rebirth, connected to the souls of those we loved in our past lives. Here is the song with the lyrics so you can read them as you listen, plus some Cassandra Jean art!

It’s been years
Since we carved our names
On a clock tower door
Before everything changed
We were big eyed boys
With the salt on our skin
And we’d throw our kites to the wind
And they’d fly on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on
On and on and on and on

Little Will and Jem

It’s been years
Since we whispered soft
With the torch light on
And the big light off
We were tired boys
With the soap on our skin
And we’d fall asleep to the wind
And we’d dream on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on
On and on and on and on

Will and Jem CJ

Cos we’re circles
We’re circles you see
We go round round the sun
In and out like the sea
I’ll circle round you
You will circle round me

And in years
When the torch light thins
And the clock tower’s gone
And the big light dims
We’ll no longer be boys
We’ll have lines on our skin
And they’ll throw our dust to the wind
