Mix - Fake News | Jon/"Stephen" | The Truth

Medium: Televison
Fandom: The Colbert Report
Subject: "Stephen Colbert"
Title: The Truth

For my 2017 [community profile] hc_bingo card, prompt "atonement."

Stephen has a thing for Jon, but at the same time he's been pushing Jon away with a mix of denial, repression, clinging to a certain public image, and displaced anger at himself. To make this work, he's going to have to own up to his issues, admit his feelings, and try to make amends.

...in song, obviously.

The Truth from erinptah on 8tracks Radio.





The Academy Is... ♦ Attention

Attention! Attention!
May I have all your eyes and ears to the front of the room,
If only, if only for one second.
Will you hear what I have to say?
Oh, did I mention when I see you it stings like hell?...
When I leave here I'm going alone
Well it's not like it hurts much anyway



David Cook ♦ The Truth

I see your face in everything single thing I do
You change me
Your laugh intoxicating
One touch and I'm negating
Everything around...

If you want to know the truth
You make or break my day

If you want to know the truth
I wouldn't have it any other way



Matchbox 20 ♦ Long Day

I'm sorry 'bout the attitude
I need to give when I'm with you
But no one else would take this shit from me
And I'm so
Terrified of no one else but me
I'm here all the time
I won't go away

It's me, yeah well I can't get myself to go away
Hey it's me, and I can't get myself to go away



Paul Brandt ♦ Worth Fighting For

It's just foolish pride to hold these feelings back
Cause I look into your eyes and I'm a helpless man
I know you hate it when I try to make you laugh even so
I want to hold you like I've never done
Say I'm sorry long before tomorrow morning comes



Taylor Swift ♦ Beautiful Eyes

I think of you late at night, I don't know why
I wanna be somewhere where you are
I wanna be where

You're here, your eyes are looking into mine
So baby, make me fly
My heart has never felt this way before



The Corrs ♦ Give It All Up

The stage lights they shine so brightly
But still I find no peace
And I'm a long long way from you

I'd give it all up just for you
Just to have you near me



Joshua Radin ♦ Sky

Sometimes I forget to love you like I should
But I'd never leave you...

Oh oh oh oh you know
The way to keep me on my toes
I'll be just fine
Just say you'll stay forever mine



Alanis Morissette ♦ Everything

I blame everyone else, not my own partaking
My passive aggressiveness can be devastating
I'm terrified and mistrusting, and you've never met anyone
As close to down as I am sometimes...

You dig everything
Of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything
To which you can't relate
And you're still here



Genesis ♦ That's All
(Jon's admission that, even with Stephen's problems, he's worth it.)

Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I'm wrong, when I thought I was right
It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell me it's black when I know that it's white...

Truth is I love you
More that I wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend



Amy Rigby ♦ Wait Till I Get You Home
(Stephen's still reluctant to be true to his feelings...in public, anyway.)

I love the way you smile when you're having fun
I love the way you say that I'm the one
You make me so happy
But there's all these people around
So wait till I get you home
And the walls come down
