The Perfect Song

Hiya guys, Happy Saturday! =D

So, I was writing yesterday, and as always, had music blasting. I’m one of those people that loves having music on while I do just about everything. I can write without it, but I write a whole lot better and quicker with music. Especially heavier music.

Anyway, I was writing, doing my thing, my series playlist blaring. I created a series playlist just for Swirling Secrets on Spotify (feel free to follow it, this mix is epic!), and it’s got over 200 songs. I always have it on shuffle play, so the mix is always different.

One of the songs that came on, is one I love writing to, but admittedly, haven’t listened to the lyrics all that closely. For what ever reason, I did this time. What I found is, this song is perfect for this series! If I had to pick one song to embody this story, that song was it.

Check these lyrics out, they are the main ones that fit this story so well:

We won’t fall to our knees
We are the one true hope
So give me an answer
Are you in or you out?
We are the one true hope
So give me an answer

We all fall, crawl out of the fear you’re in
Don’t give up
We won’t fall to our knees
We are the one true hope
So give me an answer whoa whoa
So give me an answer, now whoa whoa
Give me an answer

Stand up
You have a voice to be heard
You’re worth more than words
So let your fire burn
Oh, your flame will be lit
Again when a candle is burned at both ends
And there’s nothing left

You can change
You can become selfless
You’re not set in stone

You will wade through mistakes that we all make
But just hold on

Don’t fade away (hold on)

The song, is Hope by We Came As Romans. These lyrics are just amazing. They fit Magnhild and her struggles to find herself, and pick sides. They fit the overall conflict, on both sides. They fit the rest of humanity, caught in the crossfire between two secret superpowers. It’s just amazing! Wonderful on so many levels.

Now, this is a bit of a heavier song – it’s listed as metalcore, which is a mix of hardcore rock and metal. It may not be everyone’s taste, but if you’d like to hear this song, and really hear the spirit of this story, check it out. It really is perfect.

I’ll be posting more stuff like this, sharing behind-the-scenes looks and teasers about the series.

If you’d like to see specific posts, or have questions about the series, feel free to let me know in the comments, or shoot me an email! I may just make a blog post about it. 😉

Thanks for visiting!

Ciao for now,
