Music Monday: Sara Bareilles

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

This week’s Music Monday is brought to you by Fie Eoin (again). As you know, I’ve been working hard on re-writing the second half of the book (I have three weeks to finish!) so most of the music I’ve been listening to lately is my FE soundtrack (which will be another post in itself, maybe next week). “Let the Rain” by Sara Bareilles is the song that embodies the showdown between Kindra and Chief Oak (and then later between Kindra and the Obsidian Chief. And then it’s used in another story that I’ve written. And then… you get the point – it’s a well-worn song for me). Enjoy!

“Let the Rain”

I wish I were pretty
I wish I were brave
If I owned this city
Then I’d make it behave

And if I were fearless
Then I’d speak my truth
And the world would hear this
That’s what I wish, I’d do yeah

If my hands could hold them, you’d see
I’d take all these secrets in me
And I’d move and mold them to be
Something I’d set free

I wanna darken in the skies
Open the flood gates up
I wanna change my mind
I wanna be enough

I want the water in my eyes
I wanna cry until the end of time

I wanna let the rain come down
Make a brand new gorund
Let the rain come down

Let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down
Tonight

Hold on to worry
So tight
It’s safe in here right next to my heart
And I’ll shout at the top of my voice
Let me go, let me out, this is not my choice!

And I always felt it before
That the world was filled with much more
Then a drowning soul
I’ll learn to be
I just need the rain to remind me

I wanna darken in the skies
Open the flood gates up
I wanna change my mind
I wanna be enough

I want the water in my eyes
I wanna cry until the end of time

I wanna let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down

Let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down

I wanna let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down
Mm alright

Let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rian come down

I wanna let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down
On me, yea

Let the rain come down
make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down
Tonight

  1. Great Post. I love this song too! I like how you have a soundtrack and certain songs that pertain to your characters. I’m the same way, and always listen to certain songs for specific parts when I am writing. 🙂
