My theme this month is Soundtrack Songs. Throughout 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.
Song #1—You, Sailor by Erin McKeown
This is on the How Many Angels playlist. I wish the accompanying scene was fit for human eyes, because I would have like to have shared that as well. The video below is a scene from the short-lived TV series, Bunheads, which happens to be the first place I ever heard this song.
No longer will I beneath you shelter/ all that you have given to me/ it was never on my behalf/ All this, all and more I cede to you/ swear away in fealty/ as I sail for warmer climes/ I am a king! You can't deny me my kingdom
You, sailor, on the lonely sea/ will you turn and promise me/ you'll always be alive
Song #2—Yours by David J. Roch
I swear, this is the very last song I am going to share this month that belongs to those two characters of which I will say nothing!
By the time that you hear this/ and we're older than you remember/ I'll have done myself some damage/ with a bottle of liquor/ so close your eyes low/ your time is gonna come/ when someone of your own worth/ looks into your eyes/ I'm a fool for trying/ I'm a fool for crying but I'm yours/ I'm a fool for all the lies/ guess I'm a fool in your eyes/ But I'm yours/ I'm all yours
