Sountrack Saturday (1)



In honor of my slightly belated return to the blogging world, I have come up with a new meme to host. Introducing... Soundtrack Saturday! Every Saturday I will be posting a song I think goes along great with a certain book or series. I hope everyone will comment and let me know what they think about the meme idea in general, the song, or the book choice. =) I love to hear from you guys!

For this weeks Soundtrack Saturday we have "Fire on the Mountain" by Rob Thomas. This song reminds me so much of the Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray!


Fire on the mountain
Through the freeze
Save yourself
There's evil
In the garden
But you don't see it
I can tell



[Chorus]



How do you sleep while
The city's burning
Where do you go when you can't go home
How do you drink when
There's blood in the water
Where do you turn when
The world moves on
When the world moves on, on



Fire on the mountain
You can feel it
Against your skin
You're standing
By the river
Let the river
Take you in



How do you sleep while
The city's burning
Where do you go when you can't go home
How do you drink when
There's blood in the water
Where do you turn when
The world moves on
When the world moves on
When the world moves on, on Yeah



[X2]
Hell, I see smoke out on the horizon
Mama, get your baby, take
Her down to the water
I view the wind like a promise broken
I see the future but
It's getting farther



How do you sleep while
The city's burning
Where do you go when you can't go home
How do you drink when
There's blood in the water
Where do you turn when
The world moves on
When the world moves on, hey
When the world moves on, [x3]
Yeah, oh Yeah, oh yeah world moves on
That world moves on, yeah

Pretty much the whole song reminds me of the Gemma Doyle Trilogy, but since this song reminds me of it so literally, I've highlighted the words that really stick out to me in red. (I only highlighted them once, excluding repetitions.)

That's it for today! Let me know what you think, and feel free to use this idea yourself. I would appreciate it if you did use this meme idea, if you would link back to me and of course share your link with me so that I could spread the word. If  by some chance someone else is already doing this, please let me know, so that I can give credit where credit is due. I don't mean to copy anyone!

Much love,

Arya
