    If you haven't noticed, I'm a big Alanis Morissette fan.

    I like to think of Sara and Grissom's relationship as it is now when I hear this one. It's more positive and fun than the others I posted, and it really could be sung by either one of them; in many ways they are so much alike. I'd like to think we are out of the dark/angst phase of their relationship and into the lighter/fun/in-it-to-win-it phase. One where they accept and support each other, always. Of course, it would be nice to see it on screen every so often. :)

    Everything
    Songwriter: Alanis Morissette


    I can be an asshole of the grandest kind
    I can withhold like it's going out of style
    I can be the moodiest baby and you've never met anyone
    Who is as negative as I am sometimes
    I am the wisest woman you've ever met
    I am the kindest soul with whom you've connected
    I have the bravest heart that you've ever seen and you've never met anyone
    Who is as positive as I am sometimes

    You see everything you see every part
    You see all my light and you love my dark
    You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
    There's not anything to which you can't relate
    And you're still here

    I blame everyone else and not my own partaking
    My passive aggressive-ness can be devastating
    I'm terrified and mistrusting and you've never met anyone
    Who is as closed down as I am sometimes

    You see everything you see every part
    You see all my light and you love my dark
    You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
    There's not anything to which you can't relate
    And you're still here

    What I resist persists and speaks louder than I know
    What I resist you love no matter how low or high I go
    I am the funniest woman that you've ever known
    I am the dullest woman that you've ever known
    I'm the most gorgeous woman that you've ever known and you've never met anyone
    Who is as everything as I am sometimes

    You see everything you see every part
    You see all my light and you love my dark
    You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
    There's not anything to which you can't relate
    And you're still here

    Good one.

    I realize now what happened with my last song. There are two versions, each with a different first verse. I just combined them into one in the second posting without knowing it.

    This has been one of my favorite songs since I heard it years ago, and I always think of Grissom and Sara whenever I listen to it, when they were together on the show, and especially now. :) Since Grissom travels so much I think he appreciates more than ever that Sara is his 'home'.

    Feels Like Home
    by Bonnie Raitt/song by Randy Newman

    Something in your eyes makes me wanna lose myself,
    Makes me wanna lose myself in your arms.
    There's something in your voice makes my heart beat fast.
    Hope this feeling lasts the rest of my life.
    If you knew how lonely my life has been,
    And how alone I felt for so long.
    If you knew how I wanted someone to come along,
    And change my world the way you've done.

    Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
    Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from.
    Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
    Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong.

    A window breaks down a long, dark street,
    And a siren wails in the night.
    But I'm alright, 'cause I have you here with me.
    And I can almost see through the dark there's light.
    If you knew how much this moment means to me,
    And how long I waited for your touch.
    If you knew how happy you are making me --
    I never thought I'd love anyone so much.

    Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
    Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from.
    Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
    Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong.

    Bonnie Raitt and Randy Newman:

    This one could easily apply to Sara in season 8.
    I saw OTR in concert last year. This is such an achingly beautiful song:

    Latter Days
    by Over The Rhine

    What a beautiful piece of heartache
    This has all turned out to be
    Lord knows we've learned the hard way
    All about healthy apathy

    I use these words pretty loosely
    There's so much more to life than words

    There is a me you would not recognize, dear
    Call it the shadow of myself
    And if the music starts before I get there
    Dance without me, you dance so gracefully
    I really think I'll be okay
    They've taken a toll, these latter days

    Nothing like sleeping on a bed of nails
    Nothing much here but our broken dream
    Oh, but baby, if all else fails
    Nothing is ever quite what it seems

    And I'm dying inside to leave you
    With more than just cliches

    There is a me you would not recognize, dear
    Call it the shadow of myself
    And if the music starts before I get there
    Dance without me, you dance so gracefully
    I really think I'll be okay
    They've taken their toll, these latter days
    They've taken their toll, these latter days

    Tell them it's real
    Tell them it's really real
    I just don't have much left to say
    They've taken their toll, these latter days
    They've taken their toll, these latter days

    Not many TV shows I care about right now, so it's been a summer of music. And AM has a new CD. :)

    From an empowered, and healed, season 9 1/2 (and beyond) Sara...to Gil:

    "Guardian"
    by Alanis Morissette


    You, you who has smiled when you’re in pain
    You who has soldiered through the profane
    They were distracted and shut down

    So why, why would you talk to me at all
    Such words were dishonorable and in vain
    Their promise as solid as a fog

    And where was your watchman then

    I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
    I’ll be your warrior of care your first warden
    I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
    The greatest honor of all, as your guardian

    You, you in the chaos feigning sane
    You who has pushed beyond what’s humane
    Them as the ghostly tumbleweed

    And where was your watchman then

    I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
    I’ll be your warrior of care your first warden
    I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
    The greatest honor of all, as your guardian

    Now no more smiling mid crestfall
    No more managing unmanageables
    No more holding still in the hailstorm

    Now enter your watchwoman

    I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
    I’ll be your warrior of care your first warden
    I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
    The greatest honor of all, as your guardian

    Another great GSR song from my playlist:

    When It Don't Come Easy
    by Patty Griffin

    Red lights are flashing on the highway
    I wonder if we're gonna ever get home
    I wonder if we're gonna ever get home tonight
    Everywhere the water's getting rough
    Your best intentions may not be enough
    I wonder if we're gonna ever get home tonight

    But if you break down
    I'll drive out and find you
    If you forget my love
    I'll try to remind you
    Stay by you when it don't come easy

    I don't know nothing except change will come
    Year after year what we do is undone
    Time keeps moving from a crawl to a run
    I wonder if we're gonna ever get home

    You're out there walking down a highway
    And all of the signs got blown away
    Sometimes you wonder if you're walking in the wrong direction

    If you break down
    I'll drive out and find you
    If you forget my love
    I'll try to remind you
    And stay by you when it don't come easy

    So many things that I had before
    That don't matter to me now
    Tonight I cry for the love that I've lost
    And the love I've never found
    When the last bird falls
    And the last siren sounds
    Someone will say what's been said before
    It's only love we were looking for

    But if you break down
    I'll drive out and find you
    If you forget my love
    I'm gonna try to remind you
    Stay by you when it don't come easy
    When it don't come easy

    This might just be the ultimate GSR song:

    The Promise
    by Tracy Chapman

    If you wait for me
    Then I'll come for you
    Although I've traveled far
    I always hold a place for you in my heart

    If you think of me
    If you miss me once in awhile
    Then I'll return to you
    I'll return and fill that space in your heart

    Remembering
    Your touch
    Your kiss
    Your warm embrace
    I'll find my way back to you
    If you'll be waiting

    If you dream of me
    Like I dream of you
    In a place that's warm and dark
    In a place where I can feel the beating of your heart

    Remembering
    Your touch
    Your kiss
    Your warm embrace
    I'll find my way back to you
    If you'll be waiting

    I've longed for you
    And I have desired
    To see your face your smile
    To be with you wherever you are

    Remembering
    Your touch
    Your kiss
    Your warm embrace
    I'll find my way back to you
    Please say you'll be waiting

    Together again
    It would feel so good to be
    In your arms
    Where all my journeys end
    If you can make a promise
    If it's one that you can keep
    I vow to come for you
    If you wait for me

    And say you'll hold
    A place for me
    In your heart.

    A place for me in your heart.
    A place for me in your heart.
    A place for me in your heart.

    Don't think I could ever top The Promise as a tribute to GSR, but here is one that could fit Sara in Season 4. It's not my favorite season, since it was so angsty for my favorite character, but this is a lovely song by the incomparable Trisha Yearwood that might help define Sara's downward spiral during that season. (Thankfully, she rebounded in season 5; and, as they say, the rest is history. :)):

    Trying To Love You
    by Trisha Yearwood

    I blew out all my plans
    The world fell in my hands
    The day that I began
    Trying to love you

    The secrets I have kept
    The nights I haven't slept
    I've laughed until I wept
    Trying to love you

    Trying to love you...No one's come as close or gone so far
    Trying to love you...I've lost and found myself in who you are
    Trying to love you...So easy and so hard, trying to love you

    I watched myself get stuck
    Squandered all my luck
    Almost given up
    Trying to love you

    Trying to love you...It broke my heart, it's chipped away my pride
    Trying to love you...Everytime I'd see that faultline slide
    Trying to love you...I've crossed the great divide trying to love you

    Trying to love you...I've screamed your name, I've slammed a thousand doors
    Trying to love you...I've worn a million miles across the floor
    Trying to love you...Still I could not ignore trying to love you

    It's pulled the best from me
    For all the world to see
    I guess I'll always be
    Trying to love you

    And now one from Grissom's POV:

    If There Hadn't Been You
    by Billy Dean

    A man
    Filled with doubt,
    Down and out
    And so alone.

    A ship
    Tossed and turned,
    Lost and yearning
    For a home.

    A survivor
    Barely surviving,
    Not really sure of his next move.

    All of this
    I would've been
    If there hadn't been you.

    If there hadn't been you,
    Where would I be,
    If there hadn't been you,
    Here for me?
    I made it through times
    I never would've made it through,
    If there hadn't been you.

    A man
    Filled with hope,
    Who finally knows
    Where he belongs.

    A heart
    Filled with love,
    More than enough
    To keep it strong.

    A life
    That's alive again,
    No longer afraid
    To face the truth.

    All of this
    I would've missed
    If there hadn't been you.

    If there hadn't been you,
    Where would I be,
    If there hadn't been you,
    Here for me?
    I made it through times
    I never would've made it through.

    If there hadn't been you
    On my side,
    You
    In my life,
    All my dreams
    Would still be dreams,
    If there hadn't been you.

    All my dreams
    Would still be dreams,
    If there hadn't been you.

    This is Grissom's song, and probably defines him best after 'The Happy Place': overthinking and confused, remorseful, and ultimately just wants to start over again with Sara.

    The Scientist
    by Coldplay

    Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
    You don't know how lovely you are
    I had to find you, tell you I need you
    Tell you I set you apart

    Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
    Oh, let's go back to the start
    Running in circles, coming up tails
    Heads on a science apart

    Nobody said it was easy
    It's such a shame for us to part
    Nobody said it was easy
    No one ever said it would be this hard
    Oh, take me back to the start

    I was just guessing at numbers and figures
    Pulling the puzzles apart
    Questions of science, science and progress
    Do not speak as loud as my heart

    So tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
    Oh and I rush to the start
    Running in circles, chasing our tails
    Coming back as we are

    Nobody said it was easy
    Oh, it's such a shame for us to part
    Nobody said it was easy
    No one ever said it would be so hard
    Oh, let's go back to the start

    Who knew Bob Dylan could write such a beautiful love song; his genius knows no bounds.
    This song has been covered by many wonderful singers, most notably Adele and Garth Brooks. My favorites: Joan Osborne and Kelly Clarkson.

    This one is Sara's POV; fits best in the early seasons before the angst-filled season 4. Or possibly season 5. Anyway, it's pre-canon, sometime before Grissom acted on his true feelings.


    To Make You Feel My Love
    by Bob Dylan


    When the rain is blowing in your face
    And the whole world is on your case
    I could offer you a warm embrace
    To make you feel my love

    When the evening shatters and the stars appear
    And there is no one there to dry your tears
    I could hold you for a million years
    To make you feel my love

    I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
    But I would never do you wrong
    I’ve known it from the moment that we met
    No doubt in my mind where you belong

    I’d go hungry, I’d go black and blue
    I’d go crawling down the avenue
    There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
    To make you feel my love

    The storms are raging on the rollin’ sea
    And on the highway of regret
    The winds of change are blowing wild and free
    You ain’t seen nothing like me yet

    I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
    Nothing that I wouldn’t do
    Go to the ends of the earth for you
    To make you feel my love


    Kelly Clarkson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59iZtyFEdeY

    This is another fav on my GSR playlist. It could fit at various times in their on-again-off-again relationship, but maybe especially in season 9 when Grissom decides to go to her.

    Somewhere Only We Know
    by Keane


    I walked across an empty land
    I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
    I felt the earth beneath my feet
    Sat by the river and it made me complete

    Oh simple thing where have you gone
    I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
    So tell me when you're gonna let me in
    I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

    I came across a fallen tree
    I felt the branches of it looking at me
    Is this the place we used to love
    Is this the place that I've been dreaming of

    Oh simple thing where have you gone
    I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
    So tell me when you're gonna let me in
    I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

    And if you have a minute why don't we go
    Talk about it somewhere only we know
    This could be the end of everything
    So why don't we go
    Somewhere only we know

    Oh simple thing where have you gone
    I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
    So tell me when you're gonna let me in
    I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

    So if you have a minute why don't we go
    Talk about it somewhere only we know
    This could be the end of everything
    So why don't we go
    So why don't we go

    This could be the end of everything
    So why don't we go
    Somewhere only we know
    Somewhere only we know
    Somewhere only we know

    This is another one I relate to GSR whenever I hear it, in Grissom's POV:


    The Reason
    by Hoobastank


    I'm not a perfect person
    There's many things I wish I didn't do
    But I continue learning
    I never meant to do those things to you
    And so I have to say before I go
    That I just want you to know

    I've found a reason for me
    To change who I used to be
    A reason to start over new
    And the reason is you

    I'm sorry that I hurt you
    It's something I must live with everyday
    And all the pain I put you through
    I wish that I could take it all away
    And be the one who catches all your tears
    Thats why I need you to hear

    I've found a reason for me
    To change who I used to be
    A reason to start over new
    And the reason is you

    And the reason is you
    And the reason is you
    And the reason is you

    I'm not a perfect person
    I never meant to do those things to you
    And so I have to say before I go
    That I just want you to know

    I've found a reason for me
    To change who I used to be
    A reason to start over new
    And the reason is you

    I've found a reason to show
    A side of me you didn't know
    A reason for all that I do
    And the reason is you

    In honor of what's rumored to be a 'Rat Pack' episode of old LV being filmed on CSI, I thought I'd post a song from that era; after all, great love songs are timeless. And, can't you just see Grissom singing this to Sara in CSI:The Musical? ;):

    All The Way
    by Frank Sinatra

    When somebody loves you
    It's no good unless he loves you - all the way
    Happy to be near you
    When you need someone to cheer you - all the way

    Taller than the tallest tree is
    That's how it's got to feel
    Deeper than the deep blue sea is
    That's how deep it goes - if its real

    When somebody needs you
    It's no good unless he needs you - all the way
    Through the good or lean years
    And for all the in between years - come what may

    Who knows where the road will lead us
    Only a fool would say
    But if you'll let me love you
    It's for sure I'm gonna love you - all the way
    All the way

    So if you'll let me love you
    It's for sure I'm gonna love you - all the way
    All the way

    Another awesome song for Grissom and Sara:

    Far Away
    by Nickelback

    This time, this place
    Misused, mistakes
    Too long, too late
    Who was I to make you wait
    Just one chance
    Just one breath
    Just in case there's just one left
    'Cause you know, you know, you know

    That I love you
    I have loved you all along
    And I miss you
    Been far away for far too long
    I keep dreaming you'll be with me
    and you'll never go
    Stop breathing
    if I don't see you anymore

    On my knees, I'll ask
    Last chance for one last dance
    'Cause with you, I'd withstand
    All of hell to hold your hand
    I'd give it all
    I'd give for us
    Give anything but I won't give up
    'Cause you know, you know, you know

    That I love you
    I have loved you all along
    And I miss you
    Been far away for far too long
    I keep dreaming you'll be with me
    and you'll never go
    Stop breathing
    if I don't see you anymore

    So far away, far away
    Been far away for far too long
    So far away, far away
    Been far away for far too long
    But you know, you know, you know

    That I wanted
    I wanted you to stay
    'Cause I needed
    I need to hear you say

    I love you
    I have loved you all along
    And I forgive you
    For being away for far too long
    So keep breathing
    'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
    Believe it
    Hold on to me and never let me go
    Keep breathing
    'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
    Believe it
    Hold on to me and never let me go
    Keep breathing
    Hold on to me and never let me go
    Believe it
    Hold on to me and never let me go
