Lyrical influence on fics

I always enjoy Lyric Wheel ficathons--taking the words set to music and seeing what story they'll lead me to. But it's very rare that those stories are anywhere close to the ones I'm already writing. (The only possible one, and even this more of a meeting-in-the-middle, was my SG-1 fic These Are Gold.)

So it is very strange to find myself somewhat torn between two variations on a single story--the original way it seemed willing to go, and the darker road suggested by too much listening to Joseph Arthur's song Honey and the Moon.
