My theme this month is Soundtrack Songs. Through out April, I will be sharing with you selections from the playlists I create to accompany my novels, the lyrics that landed the song on the list, and perhaps a story snippet or two.
Song #1—Hallelujah by Rufus Wainwright
This is a How Many Angels song. It plays over a funeral scene.
there was a time/ when you let me know/ what's really going on below/ but now you never show that to me do you?
maybe there's a god above/ but all I ever learned of love/ was how to shoot at someone/ who outdrew you/ it's not a cry you hear at night/ it's not somebody who's seen the light/ it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah
Song #2—Heavy In Your Arms by Florence + The Machine
This is a Full Circle song. You know, in case you maybe thought there might be some happy moments in my fantasy series...
I was a heavy heart to carry/ my beloved was weighed down/ my arms around his neck/ my fingers laced a crown/ I was a heavy heart to carry/ my feet dragged across the ground/ and he took me to the river/ where he slowly let me drown
This will be my last confession/ I love you never felt like any blessing/ whispering like it's a secret/ only to condemn the one who hears it/ with a heavy heart
That's all for me today. Thanks for coming by...See you on Monday.
