Destined To Collide - A Kai/Erica (Being Erica) Fan Mix

Title. Destined To Collide

Medium. TV

Fandom. Being Erica

Subject. Erica Strange / Kai Booker (Being Erica)

Notes. Includes possible spoilers for season 2, 3 and 4 (although season 4 spoilers are not *really* going to spoil anything).
Post includes cover art, lyrics, zip and youtube links as well as gifs and images. A full graphics post will follow.

I admit this is a pretty big fan mix but I figure an epic ship deserves
an epic fan mix. In fact, I will probably make another one soon!
a sucker for starcrossed lovers, what can I say? And it doesn't get
more starcrossed than being seperated by time. I highly recommend the
show if you haven't seen it. It's about a woman who starts therapy with
the mysterious Dr. Tom, who sends her back in time to fix her regrets. I
also don't want to spoil too much in this description in case you want
to watch it so all I will say is that Kai is also a patient, but he
meets Erica while he is in 2009 fixing a regret. In reality, he is from
2019. They are starcrossed lovers and in my view, soul mates but are
seperated by time.

I was gonna wait until season 4 finished
before I posted this but i'm too scared it won't end up the way I want
it to so i'm posting it now lol - i'd be interested in what other BE fans think of the song choices :)

*Zip at the bottom of the post :)

Kai: "Say I believe you and your day really is going to be erased, if i'm by your side..."
"Everything I do with you, it's undone. I mean, why do you think I came
here? You are the only person who can truly appreciate this."

I know that we can't be together,
But I just like to dream.
It's so strange the way our paths have crossed,
How we were brought together,
It's written in the stars it seems.

And I'm flying so high,
High off the ground,
When you're around.

Erica: "Look I know that you can get a coffee anywhere but I happen to really like the coffee here..."
Kai: "Coming up."
Erica: "So, i'm not banned?"
Kai: No, let's be honest, you're my best customer - you tip large."

I think that possibly, maybe i'm falling for you,
Yes, there's a chance that i've fallen quite hard over you,

No one understands me quite like you do,
Through all the shadowy corners of me,

I never knew just what it was
About this old coffee shop I love so much,
All of the while I never knew,
All of the while, all of the while, it was you.


0 3 . B o r r o w e d  T i m e  -  C u e s h e
Kai: "So, should I look you up?"
Erica: "Please,
Kai, don't. And if you are going to please don't tell me because it is
just too weird to think about. Plus, i'll be 40."
Kai: "More like 42."

Love on borrowed time
Will never be yours or mine
I'll just close my eyes
And it will be alright

Oh it's good to be true
When our hopes and dreams come true
Wish that I had more of this borrowed time
If only it could last a lifetime


0 4 . S t o n e  H e a r t s  -  L e o n a  L e w i s
Kai: "I think you're gorgeous. And original and brave...And I haven't stopped thinking about you since the day I left."

You were like the crash of thunder
Echoed through my darkest nights
You awaken all my senses
Made me feel alive

Even if we try to fight it
We know that the sparks will fly
'Cause in the end we are just two people
Destined to collide


0 5 . T h i s  U n a v o i d a b l e  T h i n g  B e t w e e n  U s  -  E v e r m o r e
Kai: "Be honest, Erica. Are you angry or are you jealous?"

Between us I feel this undeniable thing
Between us so real this unavoidable thing
Between us I see this undefinable thing
Between us

A little too late, A little too soon, a little
To give a little, to take a little, to lose a little,
To find a little, to die a little, to live a little.


0 6 . H a n g i n g  B y  A  M o m e n t  -  L i f e h o u s e

Kai: "Erica, the reason I came back here..."
Erica: "The reason you came back here was to take care of a regret....and that's exactly what you should be doing right now."

I'm falling even more in love with you,
Letting go of all I've held onto,
I'm standing here until you make me move,
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

I'm living for the only thing I know,
I'm running and not quite sure where to go,
And I don't know what i'm diving into,
Just hanging by a moment here with you.


0 7 . W r i t t e n  I n  T h e  S t a r s  -  E l t o n  J o h n  &  L e A n n  R i m e s

Erica: "You know, I had a dream about you last week. I wanted to know how it's been, you know, being back in the future?"

Is it written in the stars?
Are we paying for some crime?
Is that all that we are good for,
Just a stretch of mortal time?

Is this God's experiment?
In which we have no say?
In which we're given paradise,
But only for a day.


0 8 . C r a s h e d  -  D a u g h t r y

Kai: "Will I rememeber everything? Will I remember you?"
Erica: "Yes."
Kai: "Good."

Somehow I couldn't stop myself
I just wanted to know how it felt,
Too strong, I couldn't hold on,
Yeah, yeah.
Now i'm trying to make some sense
Out of how and why this happened
Where we're heading there is just no knowing,
Yeah, yeah.

And then I crashed into you
And I went up in flames,
Could've been the death of me
But then you breathed your breath on me
And I crashed into you
Like a runaway train,
You will consume me
But I can't walk away.


0 9 . T e m p o r a r y  I n s a n i t y  -  A l e x z  J o h n s o n

Erica: "I can't believe I just did that."
Kai: "No, I kissed you."
Erica: "Why?"
Kai: "Because I wanted to see what it would be like. And so did you."

What just happened?
Did you kiss me?
'Cause that's a place we have never been until now
And I don't know how it's going to be after this
Do we pretend these feelings don't exist at all?
Or do we fall?

It's crazy to want you
Is it meant to be?
It's temporary insanity
What's going on with you and me?
Is it real or is it fantasy?


1 0 . I  C a n ' t  B e  Y o u r  F r i e n d  A n y m o r e  -  T i m  R u s h l o w

Kai: "Getting in the middle between you and Ethan, that was the old me and I won't go down that road again."
Erica: "I'm not asking you to."
Kai: "You think you can say that you feel something for me and it doesn't change anything?"
Erica: "Not if we don't let it!"
Kai: "Just do yourself a favour and stay away from me."
Erica: "Kai..."
Kai: "I'm serious. I'm done with this whole screwed up situation, this friendship - or whatever the hell it is - it's over."

This might come as quite a shock
But i've given it a lot of thought,
This thing that's come between us can't be ignored
I've taken all I can
And this is where it's gotta end
'Cause I can't be your friend anymore

And it's killing me to know you
Without having the chance to hold you
And all I wanna do is show you how I really feel inside


1 1 . N e v e r  -  M o v i n g  P i c t u r e s

Erica: "This is the weirdest 24 hours of my life! We stole a car, we're running away from police, I mean, who am I?!"
Kai: "None of it matters. This is your do-over day. Today we get to do whatever we want."

I feel your heart
It's beating time with mine
You thought love, love
Love was on the line
He holds you down
But I know you want to run
But you're hot, hot
Loaded like a gun
Oh you feel so trapped and confused
Start with nothing, you've got nothing left to lose

You can never never never ever, never, never, never ever
Hide your heart
Don't ever, ever, ever, ever try
If you don't give your heart wings
You will never never ever, never, never, ever fly


1 2 . W h o  W e  A r e  -  L i f e h o u s e

Erica: "So, you can sing! You sing really well."
Kai: "Thank you."
"Kai, it was incredible. Why didn't you tell me you were a musician?
Are you in a band? You know, like a barista by day, rock star by
Erica: "...OK, we can't talk about therapy, singing is a non-starter, what can we talk about, Latte art?"
Kai: "Fine, what do you wanna know?"

Live my life around the pictures
Taken when we met
Spending all of my time
Chasing you're silhouette

As we break and we bend
And we turn it inside out
To take it back to the start
And through the rise and falling apart
We discover who we are.


1 3 . C r a z y  F o r  T h i s  G i r l  -  E v a n  &  J a r o n

Adam: "He's not over you, Erica. Not by a long shot, i'm sorry."

She rolls the window down
And she talks over the sound
Of the cars that pass us by
And I don't know why
But she's changed my mind

Would you look at her?
She looks at me
She's got me thinking about her constantly
But she don't know how I feel
And as she carries on without a doubt
I wonder if she's figured out
I'm crazy for this girl

Right now, face to face
All my fears, pushed aside
Right now, i'm reading to spend the rest of my life
With you.


1 4 . S t a r c r o s s e d  -  A s h

Erica: "Kai! That was incredible!"
Kai: "Thank you."
Erica: "I mean it was just...It was perfect. And I am so glad you sang that song."
Kai: "I'm sorry, I don't mean to be rude but I have a terrible memory for names. Who are you again?"
Erica: "...I'm nobody. Just a fan."

In your eyes I would hide,
By your side I could defy
The forces tearing us apart
But reality, as it seems
Looking back, is that our dream
Was fated from the start

Girl, we're star crossed and can't escape
We're condemned and can only wait
At this time now it's far too late
To save us from our fate


1 5 . I n e v i t a b l e  -  A n b e r l i n
Kai: "You've got Ethan, right? You probably won't even notice i'm gone."
Erica: "Yes, I will."

I wanna break every clock,
The hands of time could never move again
We could stay in this moment
For the rest of our lives

I wanna be your last first kiss
That you'll ever have


1 6 . M y  H e a r t  W i l l  G o  O n  -  C e l i n e  D i o n
*Too many mentions of doors for this song not to be used - In some ways, I think this kinda fits them more than Jack/Rose lol ;)

"After we slept together, I couldn't get you out of my head. And so I
did the one thing you told me not, I tried to find you in 2019. And I
can't, Erica. I can't find you."

Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you go on
Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, Far,
Wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more,
You open the door,
And you're here in my heart and
My heart will go on and on


1 7 . S a v e  T o n i g h t  -  E a g l e  E y e  C h e r r y

Kai: "Look Erica i'm not asking for a relationship - I know that's impossible. I just want..."
Erica: "What?"
Kai: "I just want one night."

Well we know i'm going away
And how I wish, I wish it weren't so

It ain't easy to say goodbye
Darling, please, don't start to cry
'Cause girl you know i've got to go
And Lord, I wish it wasn't so

Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tommorow
Tommorow i'll be gone


1 8 . W h e n  Y o u  S a y  N o t h i n g  A t  A l l  -  R o n a n  K e a t i n g

It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing

Try as they may they could never define
What's being said between your heart and mine


1 9 . I  A c h e  F o r  Y o u  -  B e n  L e e

Erica: "Kai...I just have to think about it."

And it's alright if you're undecided,
Or if you are scared that you might like it,
Or if it's true, I ache for you

There's no rhyme and there's no reason
You're the secret in the back of my skull
There's no logic, so please believe me
Our love's confusing but it never gets dull


2 0 . Y o u  A n d  M e  -  L i f e h o u s e

Erica: "Kai, you are the only person I can talk to about this."

What day is it?
And in what month?
This clock never felt so alive

There's something about you now
That I can't quite figure out
Everything she does is beautiful
Everything she does is right

'Cause there's you and me
And all of the people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And there's you and me
And all other people
And I don't know why I can't take my eyes off of you


2 1 . Y o u  G i v e  M e  S o m e t h i n g  -  J a m e s  M o r r i s o n

Kai: "Okay, well you owe me now, truth or dare?"
Erica: "...Dare!"
Kai: "Alright, I dare you, to face a real fear. Do something you've always wanted to do but can't."

For every piece of me that wants you
Another piece backs away
'Cause you give me something that makes me scared alright
This could be nothing but i'm willing to give it a try
Please give me something
Because someday I might know my heart

I never thought that i'd love someone
That was someone else's dream


2 2 . L e a r n i n g  T o  B r e a t h e  -  S w i t c h f o o t

Erica: "And I do have feelings for you, Kai. I wish that I didn't, but I do."

I could use a fresh beginning too
All of my regrets are nothing new

So this is the way that I say I need you
So this is the way that I say I love you
So this is the way that I say I'm yours
This is the way, this is the way that i'm

Learning to breathe
I'm learning to crawl
I'm learning that you and you alone can break my fall
I'm living again
Awake and alive
I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies


2 3 . A l l  T h a t  I ' m  A s k i n g  F o r  -  L i f e h o u s e

Adam: "Supermodel doesn't do it for you, no?"
Kai: "Because they don't want me. They want the fantasy. I'm telling you, Adam, you're the lucky one."

Now we walk together
Knowing where we've been
Knowing mistakes have been mistaken again
It's in the past tense
There is no making sense of it now

All that i'm asking for
Is that you be nothing more
And nothing comes inbetween
Our love and it's fragile, see
All that i'm asking for
You're all that i'm asking for

Anything is possible with every beat of my heart
The time that we've spent trying to make sense of it all


2 4 . C l o s e s t  T h i n g  T o  C r a z y  -  K a t i e  M e l u a

Erica: "You asked if I was jealous."
Kai: "Yeah, I shouldn't have said that."
Erica: "No...It was the right question."

How can I have gotten in so deep?
Why did I fall in love with you?

This is the closest thing to crazy I have ever been
Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen
This is the nearest thing to crazy I have ever known
I was never crazy on my own
And now I know that there's a link between the two
Being close to craziness and being close to you


2 5 . Y o u ' r e  S t i l l  H e r e  -  F a i t h  H i l l

It's weird to be back here. Last time I saw you, you were sitting out
there, I was playing 'Alien Like You' and you were smiling."
Erica: "Yeah..I guess that was the last time that you saw me. Crazy."
Kai: "Yeah. So, how's Ethan?"
Erica: "Uh..he's fine. So, tell me what songs you are going to sing tommorow night."
Kai: "Erica."

Erica: "Ethan and I, we broke up."
Kai: "You did? When was that?"
Erica: "It was four months ago. The night that you left. The night that you went back to the future."

I thought I saw you today
You were standing in the sun but you turned away
And I knew it couldn't be but my heart believed
Oh it seems like there is something every day

'Cause you're still here,
Oh you're everywhere we've ever been
You're still here
I heard you in a stranger's laugh
And I hunger on to hear your laugh just once again


2 6 . M r . B r i g h t s i d e  -  T h e  K i l l e r s

Kai: "Well, Adam's great. Seriously, thumbs up."

It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss
It was only a kiss
Now i'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it is all in my head
But she's touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now
Now let me go
And I just can't look it's killing me
And taking control

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me


2 7 .  N o  O t h e r  W a y  -  P a o l o  N u t i n i

Kai: "Why so serious?"
Erica: "'s're back."
Kai: "I am! It's good to see you."

I've been gone far, far too long
To expect you not to have changed even a little bit
I guess I hope i'm still the kinda guy you're needing for your fool

'Cause life's a ball here on the road and these four wheels,
But something about the whole thing, it doesn't seem real

Oh this seperation,
It really gets you thinking
And after all the lights and shows and long hope lanes
It'd be you and me again
But until then

I'm home babe,
So take me in your arms
Oh babe, baby
Love me, like you do
Oh kiss me like you do
And baby you bet, i'll do it for you


2 8 .  T h i s  K i s s  -  F a i t h  H i l l

I don't want another heartbreak
I don't need another turn to cry
I don't want to learn the hard way
Baby hello, oh no, goodbye
But you got me like a rocket
Shooting straight across the sky

It's the way you love me
It's a feeling like this
It's centripicle motion
It's perpetual bliss
It's that pivotal moment
It's impossible
This kiss, this kiss
This kiss, this kiss


2 9 .  W a s h  -  L i f e h o u s e
"We got off on the wrong foot. I'll tell you what, I'll promise to not
be such a diva if you promise not to be such a hard-ass, deal?"

Never meant to waste your time
Never meant to fall out of line
I was trying to get closer to you
Now it seems with every step
It feels like i'm losing my breath
I don't know what else I can do

But you wash over me
You wash over me like rain
And you wash over me
You wash over me like sunshine


3 0 .  Y o u  G e t  M e  -  M i c h e l l e  B r a n c h

Erica: "It's so hard."
Kai: "What?"
Erica: "Being in the present."
"Yeah, it's really hard. Because your mind wants to go everywhere else.
Everywhere and anywhere but here. Which is the only place you're
supposed to be. A good friend of mine taught me that once."
Erica: "Thank you. For this talk, you really have no idea how much I needed it."

Hey, you are on my side
They, they just roll their eyes
You get me
When nobody understands
You come and take the chance
Baby you get me
You look inside my wild mind
Never knowing what you'll find
And still you want me all the time
Yeah, you do, 'Cause
You get me


3 1 .  I  W a n n a  G r o w  O l d  W i t h  Y o u  -  W e s t l i f e

Erica: "Was 'Alien Like You' one of those songs?"
Kai: "No, that was all mine. In fact, I never finished writing it."
Erica: "Why not?"
Kai: "It's never gonna be a hit."
Erica: "Oh, Kai. I thought it was incredible. I mean, you could still finish it."
Kai: "Come on, it's not my sound. It's not what the fans want to hear. Travis once said it was the most personal song I ever wrote."
Erica: "That's why I like it."

Another day, without your smile
Another day just passes by

A thousand miles between us now
It causes me to wonder how
Our love tonight remains so strong
It makes our risk right all along

The time we spent apart will make our love grow stronger
But it hurts so bad I can't take it any longer

I wanna grow old with you
I wanna die lying in your arms
I wanna grow old with you
I wanna be looking in your eyes
I wanna be there for you
Sharing in everything you do
I wanna grow old with you


3 2 . E v e r y t h i n g  -  L i f e h o u s e

Kai: Say something.
Erica: I don't really know what to say. It's just seeing you again, like this, it's really intense.
Kai: I know, for me too.

I want to feel you
I need to hear you
You are the light that's leading me
To the place where I find peace again

You are the strength that keeps me walking
You are the hope that keeps me trusting
You are the light to my soul
You are my purpose
You're everything

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?

You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything
