I’m a song geek, always have been and always will be. I think everyone enjoys songs and music, anyway. We just have different preferences. I love coming across books that have characters who listen, appreciate, play or make music. Especially those who write songs. For this week, I’ve decided to list down: Unforgettable Fictional Songs.
Talk about unforgettable. This song is definitely my top one! Ahhhh, Marcus Flutie. <3
You, yes, you, linger inside my heart
The same you who stopped us before we could start
I didnt want to leave, but you began to believe
Your own crocodile lies
The only person stopping you is yourself,
You wont accept that I want no one else,
So until you do, I’ll let someone else have you
Every day, I live the lie
But not the crocodile kind
After Audrey breaks up with her boyfriend, said boyfriend writes a song about it and it becomes a crazy hit! This is the song that turns Audrey’s world upside down.
You said your piece and now I’ve got to say mine
I had you and you strung me on the line
We said we loved and it was a lie
I touched your hair and watched you die
You crucified my heart, took every part, and hung them out to dry
‘It’s all good!’ you always say
But save it for another day
‘Cause now I’m watching you walk away
Audrey, wait! Audrey, wait!..
Breathe was a good enough book for me but I liked it so much more because of this sweet song!
Your eyes hold the key to my soul
Your hands heal all my pain,
And you’re everything that makes this boy whole
When you breathe, it sends warmth through my veins
When you laugh, my body goes insane
You’re all I need to survive
Your body is what makes me feel alive
Don’t cry, I’m not that strong
I can’t stand here when your heart is broken
How I long to be all you need
But instead, I’m everything that’s wrong
There was no definite title for this song but since Ethan wrote it for Emme, I decided to call it that. My heart swells so much whenever I read the lyrics!
If I could kiss away your pain, I would
If I could hold you every night, I would
If I could erase every mistake, every other face
I wouldn’t change a thing
Because all those things led me to this place
And to you
Because I… I could never break your heart
I wouldn’t know where to start
All I know to be true
Is the only breaking will be done by you
I so love how Max expressed herself through her songs.
In one second, I see ten years
I picture a future of all my fears
One blink, and I think
Losing you is like losing me..
In one second, I see ten years
Can’t hold it back any more than the tears
I see black dresses, life’s stresses
Imagine the grief, loss of belief
My life unfolds as yours is untold
Every time I close my eyes
Adam has lots of songs in Where She Went and they are all so beautifully written! Kaleidoscope Eyes is one of my favorites! Gahhh, I wish I could listen to Adam singing it.
Sometimes her eyes bathe sorrow
Sometimes her eyes rage love
Sometimes her eyes are a caress
Soft as a velvet glove
Sometimes I’m scared to look
Afraid that I might trespass
But every time I lift my eyes to hers
Those eyes, they always say yes
Your eyes always say yes
Cade wrote this song for Bliss but I loved how it was used for both Garrick-Bliss and Cade-Max!
No matter how close, you are always too far
My eyes are drawn everywhere you are
I’m tired of the way we both pretend
Tired of always wanting and never giving in
I can feel it in my skin, see it in your grin
We always have been
Think of everything we’ve missed
Every touch and every kiss
Because we both insist
This has got to be the cutest fictional song ever! It’s kinda genius.
I saw her in the produce section late last Saturday
It hadn’t been but seven days since she went away
Once she’d love my filet mignon, my carnivore inklings
But now she was a vegan princess, living off of beans…
Don’t you ever give me no rotten tomato,
‘Cause all I ever wanted was your sweet potato
Mashed, whipped, creamed, smothered, chunked, and diced,
Anyway you fix it baby, sure tastes nice
