Day 9: Today’s Writing Song

I get shakes every time I listen to this song by Evanescence. It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve heard it. I really have to pick my mood and moment because it’s not a light song.

In my playlist for Beyond the Precipice, I write: Really pay attention to the lyrics of Hello, which beautifully capture the shock, disbelieve, and denial of death, and how the mind attempts to deal with it. You can imagine 12-year-old Bret back at school after the horrific accident. Substitute “he” for “she” in “she’s not breathing,” where “he” would be Bret’s father.

“If I smile and don’t believe
Soon I know I’ll wake from this dream”

I’m the lie living for you so you can hide”

This is followed by a cello interlude leading to a climactic finish.
