whoever thought the sun would come crashing down

Ever since I heard it from the Paradise Kiss movie (starring Kitagawa Keiko as Yukari and Mukai Osamu as George), I've kinda fallen in love with Sweetbox's song "Everything's Gonna Be Alright." Then it occurred to me that it's the perfect song for an alternative Baldur/Nanna story. For realz.

Whoever thought the sun would come crashing down
My life in flames, my tears concrete the pain
We feel the end, the darkest, deepest riverbed
My book of life ain't complete without you here
Alone I sit and reminisce, sometimes
I miss your touch, your kiss, your smile
And meanwhile you know I never cry
Because deep down inside, you know our love will never ever die

Everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be okay
Everything's gonna be alright, together we can take this one day at a time
Can you take my breath away? Can you give him life today?
Is everything gonna be okay?
I'll be your strength, I'll be here when you wake up
Take your time, and I'll be here when you wake up

To me, this is totally about an alternate ending to the death of Baldur story: Nanna doesn't kill herself (or die of heartbreak, whatever); instead, she tries to find ways to bring a comatose Baldur back to life.

I'd give my life to only see you breathe again
Hand in hand as we walk on the white sands
...You see I'd wait a lifetime, because you're my destiny.
