Music Monday: Vienna Teng

[tweetmeme source=”stickynotestory” only_single=false https://rebeccaenzor.wordpress.com/]

Happy Monday! This week’s song is The Tower, by Vienna Teng. Now that I’ve only got a month to get the second half of Fie Eoin ready for my crit group I’ve gotta really get working on the Kaye chapters. Kindra’s are all finished, but Kaye still needs some work. This song reminds me of her, especially once her story arc really gets moving, and listening to “Kaye songs” will help keep me working on her chapters instead of skipping back to Kindra.

The one who survives by making the lives
of others worthwhile
she’s coming apart
right before my eyes
The one who depends on the services she renders
to those who come knocking
she’s seeing too clearly what she can’t be
what understanding defies

She says I need not to need
or else a love with intuition
someone who reaches out to my weakness and won’t let go
I need not to need
I’ve always been the tower
but now I feel like I’m the flower trying to bloom in snow

She turns out the light anticipating night falling
tenderly around her
and watches the dusk
the words won’t come
She carries the act so convincingly the fact is
sometimes she believes it
that she can be happy the way things are
be happy with the things she’s done

reach out
but hold back
where is safety
reach out
and hold back
where is the one who can change me
where is the one
the one
the one

reach out
but hold back
where is safety
reach out
and hold back
where is the one who can save me
where is the one
the one
the one

  1. Haven’t heard this one. Cool! Good luck with revisions. I think it’s essential to have just the right tunes to get you in the right frame of mind. 😉
