Friday Plot Swap~ Musical Style

Dawn's Plot Swap
Have a plot? Leave one
Need a plot ? Take one 
In honor of Olivia Kelly's guest post yesterday, I decided to make today a musical swap. I dug into my OneNote files and pulled out some of my character's theme songs. 
 Here is what I have for you today: 
This is Justin's song. He's hesitant to leave his heart unprotected again, but he can't deny his feelings for Charleigh.
I almost said I love you
Could I really be that kind of guy
See one candle burning in your eye
And watch my heart fill up with butterflies
I almost said I need you
Girl I shouldn't go there anymore
Act like I never been in love before
You probably think it's my first time
This one is for Luke. Poor guy, he had convinced himself he was over Gloria. Never wanted to see her again. Until the day he come home to find her sleeping in his bed. 
You took a hammer to these walls,
Dragged the memories down the hall,
Packed your bags and walked away.
There was nothing I could say.
And when you slammed the front door shut,
A lot of others opened up,
So did my eyes so I could see
That you never were the best for me.
And last, we have this for Race. The world he ruled was shattered when the witness he was protecting died in front him.  But, now, Haylie is standing in front of him, needing more protection than he could ever offer.  

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning, I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own
* I prefer this version, but Coldplay's isn't bad either.
So swap me ! What songs fit your characters? Or your story? What songs tell the story you wish you could write?

My character's are jealous, their creator was not clever enough to think of theme songs. Hmmmmm *drums nails* I will have to think of something now.

Fun post.

I usually don't have individual songs for a character, but whole playlists that suit what I'm working on. However, for Fragile Bones, one of my betas sent me this song for Nathan, the POV character. I actually teared up when I first heard it and several times after; it suits him so perfectly. This video isn't very good, but you can still hear the song. :)

How fun is this?

My character's Avery Soren's theme song is "I Should Go" by Levi Kreis.

He loves the heroine and would love nothing more than to be with her, but the life he leads would leave her as collateral damage all the time.

I don't know if I have a love song for my WIP, yet, but I'm thinking that Toby Keith's "Red Solo Cup" might have been an anthem for my hero in the past...and that maybe "You shouldn't Kiss me like This" might factor in there somewhere....

Now, I have all these great songs to look up. I have to be careful because I can get lost for hours just checking out all the music and not actually writing.
