Theme Song Thursday #3



So this week I'm choosing a book that isn't out yet. I know, I know... don't kill me! BUT, I just finished reading it recently and it's AMAZING. Like beyond amazing. And that book is Pushing The Limits by: Katie McGarry. So hopefully you love all the songs I picked for the book and it'll help you get a little preview/feel of the book! :) Enjoy!


_____

Find Vienna - Both Need Saving

The title alone explains why I picked this song for Pushing The Limits.



_____

Meg & Dia - Indiana

I think this is a good one for Echo. <3

Okay, so this is a live video because I like this upbeat version of the song way better than the acoustic sounding one.



She began to die
Indiana that's not right
Indiana that's not right
Then she began to fight
Indiana make it mine
Indiana make it mine

So pale and white
So inclined to do whats right
I will not sir, feel lonely tonight
shes strong but not obedient wise

I can do whatever I want like you

She began to die
Indiana that's not right
Indiana that's not right
Then she began to fight
Indiana make it mine
Indiana make it mine

So try this out
No time to run and hide
I will not sir feel lonely tonight
She's strong but her minds is loosing life


_____

Skillet - Hero

I think this song is perfect for the beginning of the book. Perfect for the way both Noah and Echo feel about their past. 



I'm going to post almost all the lyrics, because they're all so perfect. I'll bold the ones that really stick out to me. And no, I won't tell you why. You'll have to wait and see =P

I'm just a step away
I'm just a breath away
Losin' my faith today
(Fallin' off the edge today)

I am just a man
Not superhuman
(I'm not superhuman)
Someone save me from the hate

It's just another war
Just another family torn

(Falling from my faith today)
Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero (save me now)
I need a hero to save my life

A hero'll save me (just in time)

I've gotta fight today
To live another day

Speakin' my mind today
(My voice will be heard today)

I've gotta make a stand
But I am just a man
(I'm not superhuman)
My voice will be heard today

It's just another war
Just another family torn

(My voice will be heard today)
It's just another kill
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

I need a hero to save my life
I need a hero just in time
Save me just in time
Save me just in time


Who's gonna fight for what's right
Who's gonna help us survive
We're in the fight of our lives
(And we're not ready to die)


Who's gonna fight for the weak
Who's gonna make 'em believe
I've got a hero (I've got a hero)
Livin' in me

I'm gonna fight for what's right
Today I'm speaking my mind
And if it kills me tonight
(I will be ready to die)


A hero's not afraid to give his life
A hero's gonna save me just in time

Staying with the Skillet theme...

Skillet - The Last Night

This song is yet another reason why I'm in love with Skillet. And it's another song that I think perfectly describes Noah and Echo's relationship. 


Yet again, bolding the parts that stand out to me :)

You come to me with scars on your wrist
You tell me this will be the last night feeling like this

I just came to say goodbye
I didn't want you to see me cry, I'm fine
But I know it's a lie.


This is the last night you'll spend alone
Look me in the eyes so I know you know
I'm everywhere you want me to be.
The last night you'll spend alone,
I'll wrap you in my arms and I won't let go,
I'm everything you need me to be.


Your parents say everything is your fault
But they don't know you like I know you they don't know you at all
I'm so sick of when they say
It's just a phase, you'll be o.k. you're fine
But I know it's a lie.


The last night away from me

The night is so long when everything's wrong
If you give me your hand I will help you hold on

Tonight,
Tonight.

I won't let you say goodbye,
I'll be your reason why.

The last night away from me,
Away from me.

Chevelle - Panic Prone

This purely a Noah song. Particularly a scene towards the end that made me cry. A scene where Noah had to make a major decision.

And well, I guess this song could work for Echo too.


So to care or plead silence?
Weak hands are calling

There's close enough
And there's too far
It won't change an empty stare
But I can't seem to end
These images
Hauntingly looks like hell

_____

Halestorm - Beautiful With You

I feel like this is perfect for how Echo feels with Noah.


I stand naked before you now
No walls to hide behind
So here am I, you see all of my scars
Still here you are
I bare my soul and I'm not afraid
Not afraid

I am beautiful with you
Even in the darkest part of me
I am beautiful with you
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be
You're here with me
Just show me this and I'll believe
I am beautiful with you


Yep, perfection.

______

Apocalyptica ft.  Lacey - Broken Pieces

I think this song is perfect for both Echo and Noah's situations. Yet again, I'll bold lyrics. And just remember I'm not always bolding things for Echo and Noah together. But Echo and her situation and Noah and his situation. ;)




And as you ripped it all apart,
That's when I turned to watch you
And as the light in you went dark
I saw you turn to shadow
If you would salvage some part of you that once knew love
But I'm losing this
And I'm losing you


Oh I've gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see
Oh I've gotta save my blood
From all that you've broken
And pack up these pieces of me


It's too late now to stop the process
This was your choice - you let it in
This double life you lead is eating you up from within
A thousand shards of glass you pushed beneath my skin
And left me lying there to bleed


And as you showed me your scars
I only held you closer

But as the light in you went dark I saw you turn over
I wanted always to be there for you and close to you
But I'm losing this
And I'm losing you


Oh I've gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see
Oh I've gotta save my blood
From all that you've broken
And pack up these pieces of me

Red - Never Be The Same

This is one of my favorite songs in the whole world. And, I originally planned on saving it for a different book, but after reading Pushing The Limits, I couldn't not use it for this book.


I know you, who are you now?
Look into my eyes if you can't remember.
Do you remember, oh?


I can see, I can still find
You're the only voice my heart can recognize
But I can't hear you now, yeah.

I'll never be the same
I'm caught inside the memories, the promises
are yesterdays and I belong to you.
I just can't walk away
'cause after loving you
I can never be the same.


And how can I pretend I've never known you?
Like it was all a dream, no.
I know I'll never forget

the way I always felt with you beside me
and how you loved me then, yeah.

You led me here,
then I watched you disappear.
You left this emptiness inside
and I can't turn back time
No, stay!
Nothing compares to you.
Nothing compares to you.
I can't let you go,
Can't let you go.
I can't let go.

I'll never be the same,
not after loving you,
not after loving you, no.


I can never be the same.
I will never be the same.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
I just can't walk away.
No, I can't walk away from you.

Okay I think I overloaded on songs there. But there's truly SO many that could go for this book. Dark ones. Love ones. Upbeat ones. EEEK.

So what do you think? Do you agree with me if you've read the book? Do you like the songs? Do you have any thoughts of your own... any other song suggestions for the book. Or why you like the lyrics of this song for the book?
Thanks for stopping by! :)
