Challenge Description


I've got a great challenge for you guys.

Okay here goes. It's a song fic challenge. Wait!  It's a really cool/sweet/awesome song. The song lyrics are by Staind and the song's called 'It's Been Awhile'.

Here are the lyrics:

It's been awhile
Since I could hold my head up high
And it's been awhile
Since I first saw you
And it's been awhile
Since I could stand on my own two feet again
And it's been awhile
Since I could call you
But everything I can't remember,
as fucked up as it all may seem,
the consequences that I've rendered,
I've stretched myself beyond my means.

It's been awhile
Since I could say that I wasn't addicted
And it's been awhile
Since I could say I love myself as well
And it's been awhile
Since I've gone and fucked things up just like I always do
And it's been awhile,
but all that shit seems to disappear when I'm with you
But everything I can't remember,
as fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I've rendered,
I've gone and fucked up things again.
Why must I feel this way?
Just make this go away,
just one more peaceful day

It's been awhile
Since I could look at myself straight
And it's been awhile
Since I said I'm sorry
And it's been awhile
Since I've seen the way the candle lights your face
And it's been awhile,
but I can still remember just the way you taste
But everything I can't remember,
as fucked up as it may seem...to be,
I know it's me,
I cannot blame this on my father,
he did the best he could for me

It's been awhile
Since I could hold my head up high
and it's been awhile
since I said...I'm sorry

The plot:

I picture Cupid saying this about Strife, either because they broke up or because Strife died.

You can pick who says this to who, but you must include the entire song. Change it as it needs.

I'd love to see a story with this song in it. Anyone game?
