Song of the Day: Understanding – Evanescence

Today’s song of the day is of course another song for the novel that I am currently writing.

Artist: Evanescence

Song: Understanding

This song is mostly for my main character Emma. The two years living as ghost, she doesn’t remember anything, how she died and who her family is; she wonders if anyone misses her.

“You hold the answers deep within your own mind.
Consciously, you’ve forgotten it.
That’s the way the human mind works.
Whenever something is too unpleasant, to shameful for us
to entertain, we reject it.
We erase it from our memories.
But the imprint is always there.”

This quote from the song is definitely for her. Her main task in the story is to figure out what happened and how she ended up where she is now. Who caused her such terrible injustice and took everything from her.

Hope arises when she meets Joshua, he is the only one that can see her and interact with her whilst everyone else thinks he has lost his marbles. He makes it his mission to help her and they become pretty close friends.

The only thing she does remember is the love she felt for Aaron.

Inside the house, she is afraid of the sky blue door that doesn’t open, she becomes edgy whenever she sees it or stands in front of it. Her soul screams to run away. Joshua believes it might just hold all the answers they are looking for.

Emma however is too scared and decides that maybe being a ghost is much better. As you can see even though she has forgotten everything it is imprinted in her mind and is trying to come up to the surface, but she prefers to ignore it.  Joshua on the other hand doesn’t want her to ignore it, he wants her to find out as he believes this is her unfinished business and cannot move on to the other side.

Whatever she finds she won’t be alone, he will be by her side every step of the way…
