Music While I Write…

If I had to name one song that reminds me of Jae and Cole, it is Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s Promise. I normally listen to more upbeat music while I write; usually Korean hip hop or dance but during intimate scenes, this one has to play.

Lyrics
Son I see it in your eyes
There is a burden you cannot hide
But in their arms you feel so alive
And in a moment you’re cast aside

All lines have broken and we need you to hold on
Your eyes have opened but you’ve got to go on
I will comfort you
I will stay with you
It’s a promise not forgotten

Now I hear you in my mind
There is a story you bring to life
And I will bow gently by your feet
But tread softly you tread on my dreams

You’re crying all these tears but they mean to leave you dry
Still fighting all these years about the same old things
We wished we never had

The vision softly fades
But there’s a light that still remains
And in these walls I feel your sadness wane
But in a moment you’ll feel no pain

All lines have broken but we need you to hold on
Your eyes have opened, but you’ve got to go on
I will comfort you
I will sing to you
It’s a promise not forgotten

Come on baby let’s light the sun rise
Come on baby let’s light the night

    Lovely.
    I just listened to “Hold On” again….Tom Waits. Funny how that sadness in song can be so comforting.

    ” Still fighting all these years about the same old things
