Theme Song Thursday #3

Theme Song Thursday is hosted and created by my favorite: Jena @ Shortie Says where you choose a book you've read or are currently reading and pair it with a song that you think describes the book and why.
For this week's TST, I chose One Moment by Kristina McBride


Because this book put me on such an emotional roller-coaster, I couldn't pick just one song.

So Contagious - Acceptance


Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?)
To say you're the only one breaking me down like this
You're the only one I would take a shot on
Keep me hanging on so contagiously

Oohhh, when I'm around you I'm predictable
Cause I believe in loving you with first sight
I know it's crazy but I'm hoping to..
To take a hold of you
This song definitely describes Maggie's feelings for Joey and how their relationship was before his death, before everything went crazy. For Maggie, it was just her and Joey together.

Paperthin Hymn - Anberlin


Who's gonna call on Sunday morning?
Who's gonna drive you home?
I just want one more chance
To put my arms in fragile hands

I thought you said forever
(Over and over)
A sleepless night becomes bitter oblivion

These thoughts run through my head
(Over and over)
Maggie's angry and upset. She can't come to terms with Joey's death. She thought it would always be her and Joey, no matter what. Now he's gone when he was always supposed to be around.


We Are Broken - Paramore


'Cause we are broken
What must we do to restore
Our innocence
And oh, the promise we adored
Give us life again
'Cause we just wanna be whole
Although this book is centered around Maggie and her relationship with Joey, his death made a huge impact on their friends. So this song is definitely for the whole group. Joey was their glue, the person they loved the most. He was the life, the party and now that he's gone something is missing. Even though they are still friends, they are broken and they can't really be fixed.


Tell Her Something - The Age of Information


Tell her she is all that's beautiful
Tell her everything's my fault
Tell her this is not what I had planned
Tell I am moving on

Tell her love will come around, someday
Please tell her not to cry
I never meant for love to leave her cold tonight
Please tell her that I tried to spare her all my lies
Tell her something

Tell her I am lost in misery
Tell her I have lost my mind
Tell her love was such a mystery
Tell her tunnels end in light

Tell her love will come around, someday
But please tell her not to cry
I never meant for love to leave her cold tonight
Please tell her that I tried to spare her all my lies
Tell her something

I cannot say all that my heart longs to tell her
That nothing can change
That all of these words are not enough

Tell her she is all that's beautiful
Tell her everything's my fault

Please tell her not to cry
I never meant for love to leave her cold tonight
Please tell her that I tried to spare her all my lies
Tell her something
When I first heard this song, I knew it'd be perfect for One Moment.
This song is specifically for Joey to Maggie.
Everything that he couldn't say and all that he wanted to say is in this song.

On A Night Like This - Dave Barnes


On a night like this,
I could fall in love, I could fall in love with you
In this dark so dense, we talk so soft
The way young lovers do.
This song definitely fits the end of One Moment and if you read it, you'll understand.
