Tune Tuesday: ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ by Swedish House Mafia

Every Tuesday here at TMI Source is Tune Tuesday, where we share a song that relates to The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices or The Dark Artifices.

This week’s Tune Tuesday – “Don’t You Wanna Child” by Swedish House Mafia – comes from TMI Source reader Sydney.

“The first verse describes Jace as he was a child living in the Wayland Manor and the chorus reminds me of when Valentine killed him by Lake Lyn. And about half way through the song he speaks about meeting a girl of a different kind, Clary. And later says he thinks of her now and then…which is a slight understatement, considering Jace and Clary were always thinking of each other when they thought they were siblings,” Sydney wrote.

“Don’t You Wanna Child” by Swedish House Mafia

There was a time
I met a girl of a different kind.
We ruled the world,
I thought I’d never lose her out of sight.
We were so young, I think of her now and then.


Lyrics:

“Don’t You Worry  Child” by Swedish House Mafia

There was a time
I used to look into my father’s eyes.
In a happy home
I was a king, I had a golden throne.
Those days are gone,
Now the memory’s on the wall.
I hear the songs
From the places where I was born.Upon a hill across a blue lake,
That’s where I had my first heartbreak.
I still remember how it all changed.

My father said,
“Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, child.
See heaven’s got a plan for you.
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now.”
Yeah!

“Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, child.
See heaven’s got a plan for you.
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now.”
Yeah!

There was a time
I met a girl of a different kind.
We ruled the world,
I thought I’d never lose her out of sight.
We were so young, I think of her now and then.
I still hear the songs reminding me of a friend.

Upon a hill across a blue lake,
That’s where I had my first heartbreak.
I still remember how it all changed.

My father said,
“Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, child.
See heaven’s got a plan for you.
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now.”
Yeah!

Oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh!

See heaven’s got a plan for you
[Live version repetitions:]
See heaven’s got a plan for you
See heaven’s got a plan for you

“Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, child.
See heaven’s got a plan for you.
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now.”
Yeah!

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh! [3x]
Yeah!

    love this song and it does kind of remind when jace is younger and his relationship of clar where he thinks they’re related

  3. Anyone ever mentioned Jamie’s band The Darling Bud’s song Cities Alive? http://youtu.be/pTeofma-S4w

    Ja man har ju hört den här sången med Swedish House Mafia både en och femtio gånger men jag har nog inte kopplat den till TMI direkt. Lite för “glad” för det kan jag tycka även om beskrivningen fanset ger stämmer bra in.
