Tuesday Tunes (12)

Today's musical choice is inspired by Where She Went by Gayle Forman*. It's one of my favorite songs to have on in the background when I'm writing, so imagine my surprise and delight when it showed up in a very key scene in a book that I had been dying to read for months now. I don't want to spoil the book or anything, but I love so much that Gayle mentioned this song by name for this key scene...it was playing in my head as I read through the pages and it made that emotional scene that much more real for me. I loved this book, I love those characters, and I love this song, so it was all very perfect.

I know that a lot of authors share the playlists they created for the book. I love that Gayle put this sing right there on the pages for us.



Chicago - Sufjan Stevens

I fell in love again
All things go, all things go
Drove to Chicago
All things known, all things known
We sold our clothes to the state
I don't mind, I don't mind
I made a lot of mistakes
In my mind, in my mind

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things known, all things known
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

I drove to New York
In the van, with my friend
We slept in parking lots
I don't mind, I don't mind
I was in love with the place in my mind, in my mind
I made a lot of mistakes in my mind, in my mind

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things know, all things know
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

If I was crying
In the van, with my friend
It was for freedom
From myself and from the land
I made a lot of mistakes

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things know, all things know
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
(I made a lot of mistakes)
All things know, all things know
(I made a lot of mistakes)
You had to find it
(I made a lot of mistakes)
All things go, all things go
(I made a lot of mistakes)
