I Got A Love That Keeps Me Waiting!

Hi There!

What’s up?

You all might be thinking why the weird title for the post? Allow me to explain. As you probably know during April I have be doing Camp NaNo and I have been thinking of my novel soundtrack and one track that fits well is this one:

Artist: The Black Keys

Song: Lonely Boy

It fits one of my characters really nicely. It speaks of the time when Aaron meets Emma for the first time (when she was alive) and how he ended up falling in love with her. He always waited patiently for her and this is the one girl he didn’t want to lose or hurt.

Aaron knew that Emma had ended her relationship with her ex-boyfriend, Kyle, because her father disapproved of the relationship and  she was pretty sad about it. Aaron was first her friend and became her support and he slowly started to love her in the process.

Somewhere deep down inside, even though Emma had started to love him too, he knew she still loved Kyle. Who can forget their first love?

When she started to move on with him, they were together for a whole year before he proposed to her. Obviously her father favored Aaron more than Kyle. Her father thought of him as more capable to look after his daughter after he died. Aaron is a young, handsome rich man who everyone likes and wants to be like.

That was just a little biography to Aaron. But all I can say is appearance’s can be deceiving, and that couldn’t be more true when it comes to Aaron.

Well your mama kept you but your daddy left you
And I should’ve done you just the same
But I came to love you
Am I born to bleed?

This part of the song fits Emma and Aaron perfectly. The only difference is that Emma never knew her mother and never had a mother’s love. Her father brought her up from birth. The closet to a mother she has ever experienced is her step mother and that is when her younger brother, Steve Beckett, is born.

The lyrics to this song are just really catchy and they are stuck in my head especially this bit:

Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
I’m a lonely boy
I’m a lonely boy
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting

Now you can see where I got the title from! The song is really enjoyable that I remember the lyrics and can terribly sing to it. This song made me forget that I can’t sing and it made me feel like I was someone else and I even have a little dance too!

Every time I hear this song I see my characters as if they are normal people going out and having a blast at some party. It is like my own music video for them and they seem to come out and play!

Overall I love this song and is one of my favorites 🙂

Feeling the love?

Hi!

So how is everyone these days?

Today was a strange day. Normally I avoid listening to songs that speak of love, I don’t know why this is? Maybe it is because I have given up on the idea of love? Well anyway, whatever it is, that brick wall decided to surrender today. It crumbled away and showed cobwebs surrounding the heart that I had locked away so tightly for a year and bit.

This all happened after listening to this artist called Framing Hanley! These songs invoked something within me, especially the songs ‘You’ and ‘Fool With Dreams’.

This song does something to me every time I hear it. The lyrics just seem to pluck away at the heart strings.

“For you
‘Cause I don’t want to lose you

I was thinking about telling you
I was in love
I was in love with you
With you
With you
I’m in love with you”

The singers voice is amazing and accompanied by the acoustic guitar makes this song a beautiful one.

“I’m a fool with dreams and not a lot of things
I swear that I will be all you need, don’t give up on me
Give me one more day, don’t give this all away
We’ll be fine you’ll see, just don’t give up on me”

“I’ve got the feeling that this will never cease
Living in these pictures
It never comes with ease
I swear that if I could make this right
You’d be back by now”

These three songs are just beautiful and meaningful and I’m in love with them. I know that ‘Alone in This Bed’ is quite a sad song as it’s about missing someone but, I’ll be honest I think these three songs are worthy of Songs of the Day. What do you think?

Song of the Day: I’ll Reach You – Delain

Well I haven’t done this in such a long time! I guess I’m slowly getting back to my old self once again.

Artist: Delain

Song: I’ll Reach You

I heard this song only a few days ago and ever since I heard it, it started to play with my emotions. The lyrics seemed to take me back to a point in my childhood when I was separated from a childhood friend. In fact in those days he was the only friend I had. Yes, I was quite the unloved little girl back then.

My brother had given him the name of Norman Bates, yes, it is the name of a fictional character from a horror movie. He had come all the way from Scotland and shifted into the opposite apartment building. We could never be separated and it seemed we were super glued together. I remember one image where my dad had taken me and my best friend for a drive in his new car and we just had fun being silly kids playing in the back seat.

The lyrics which creates such a reaction are these:

Here’s to you if you care to listen
Here’s to you, let me cross the distance

Even if you’re not here
I’ll reach you, I’ll reach you
Even though you’re away, I’m near
We’ll forgive and forget
I’ll reach you

The thing is we spent about one month together and in that time he had meant so much to me and I treasured our friendship so much. But he then had to go back to Scotland but, because I was at school, I couldn’t even say goodbye to him. He did leave me his toy tractor as a reminder of him. I cried for ages when he left. The thing is, after all these years he has never left my mind and once in a while a thought of him always appears in my mind. Sometimes questions appear in my mind like: Is he okay? Is he happy? What does he do in his spare time? Does he work in his dream job?

After all those questions, it relates to another set of lyrics which rings true:

Seven years and seven days you’ve been gone
Seven years of changing faith and opinion
Would you recognize me
If you walked beside me?
I would keep on waiting
It’s been to long

But what these lyrics say is quite true, would he recognise me if we walked past each other? Probably not. What if we have bumped into each other and not known it? That would be a funny game fate would have played with us.

If there is someone you miss, what song would you listen to that would remind you of that person?

Well anyway, enough of a trip down memory lane.

I hope you guys enjoy the tune! 🙂

Song of the Day: In Her Remorse – She Remembers You

I do apologise for not updating my blog in about a week and a half, as there was a few personal issues I had to deal with. But I’m back now and with me I have decided to do something really different with the song of the day.

Today’s song of the day is not done by a familiar artist but by a very good friend of mine. He is a very talented young musician who sings, write’s his own music and writes his own songs! The music he creates he creates from his heart and I must say it is truly beautiful.

Before adding this track, I asked his permission and he said yeah. So I wanted to share this with my fellow bloggers 🙂

I hope you do enjoy it!
