Devlen's Song

Ah, the second post.  I've been wanting to post this since SPY GLASS was released last September.  Sometimes a song will echo something I'm writing or have written and when I heard this song, I immediately thought of Devlen - it's perfect for him.  Now if you haven't read SPY GLASS, you might not want to read the lyrics.

Devlen's song:  The Reason, by Hoobastank

I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
Thats why i need you to hear

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is You

and the reason is You [x3]

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you


By the way - the You is Opal :)  So what do you think?  Perfect right?  Do you know any other songs that match my characters and/or stories?

  1. Oh wow! Maria that song is totally perfect! It's hard for me to think of a song for certain characters. I read so much and listen to a variety of bands and the lyrics hardly ever fit a character.

    Although there is one song that always makes me think of a story idea I've had for ages. Trying to plot it out and whatnot for awhile now, still needs a little more "umph" before I get to writing it!

  2. That IS so perfect for Devlen! I love your books! I don't think I know any good songs that would do them justice. My music mostly consists of Lady Gaga and Rihana, lol

  5. hehe...tried to post this yeasterday but my PC was being silly!
    October and April by The Rasmus reminds me of Valek and Yelena :) Mostly the chorus.
    'Like hate and love/worlds appart/this fatal love was like poison right from the start.'
    :) It's a lovely song... :)

  12. I found the perfect song for Yelena and Valek

    Never Alone lyrics-

    I waited for you today
    But you didn't show
    No no no
    I needed you today
    So where did you go?
    You told me to call
    Said you'd be there
    And though I haven't seen you
    Are you still there?

    I cried out with no reply
    And I can't feel you by my side
    So I'll hold tight to what I know
    You're here and I'm never alone

    And though I cannot see You
    And I can't explain why
    Such a deep, deep reassurance
    You've placed in my life

    We cannot separate
    'Cause you're part of me
    And though you're invisible
    I'll trust the unseen

    I cried out with no reply
    And I can't feel You by my side
    So I'll hold tight to what I know
    You're here and I'm never alone

    We cannot separate
    You're part of me
    And though You're invisible
    I'll trust the unseen

    I cried out with no reply
    And I can't feel You by my side
    So I'll hold tight to what I know
    You're here and I'm never alone

  14. I think that Behind Blue Eyes by Limp Bizkit is the perfect song for Valek and every time I hear Cut by Plumb I think of Yelena.
