Music Monday: Lex and Em...and Alex

 [Again, spoilers ahead for Rift, read at your own risk.]

Oh, what a tangled web. You have Madelyne, who thinks that she knows Alex. She hears his voice through her headphones every night. They share inside jokes and memories of times spent in a virtual world. He listens. He understands. He is everything she has been looking for - and suddenly she has a way to be Em to his Lex.

This song makes me think of several scenes - Em, upon arriving in Tyrael and seeing it for the first time, then Em outside the cabin, looking up at the sky. Em receiving her tattoo. Em trying to separate Lex from Alex. "I'm gonna get you out of here/if I could catapult my heart to where you are."




Catapult
Jack Savoretti

Following the headlights
Got to find a way back to you
I can be the white knight
You can play the princess
We'll be running like outlaws
Hiding in the midnight
Break down them gates
Let in the sunlight
Throw me over these walls
High up in the atmosphere
If I could catapult my heart
Watch the empire fall
I'm gonna get you outta here
If I could catapult my heart
To where you are
You say you had your heart broken
What a stupid little thing to do
Now you're tied to a train track
But I'm a gonna come
And rescue you
Make no mistake
I'll do whatever it takes
To get over these walls
High up in the atmosphere
If I could catapult my heart
Watch the empire fall
Ooh I'm gonna get you outta here
If I could catapult my heart
To where you are
If I could catapult my heart
Oh throw me over these walls
Ooh high up in the atmosphere
If I could catapult my heart
Watch the empire fall
Ooh I'm gonna get you outta here
If I could catapult my heart
To where you are
If I could catapult my heart
To where you are
I'm gonna catapult my heart
