TLS Soundtrack: Song 3 + Countdown Contest Entry

11/30/2010

Ready for the next installment on THE LOST SAINT soundtrack? (I'm kind of hoping the answer is yes, because I'm going to post it anyway.)

Song 3 is "Cold Water" by The Reindeer Section. This was a tough choice. There is so much about the song that is right, but it still feels like it's not exactly right, you know?. In the end, the pros outweighed the cons. The mood of the song is a little sadder than what I was looking for, but the title is perfect, as are most of the words.

We just came from a perfect moment between two people deeply in love with track 2, and what happens next is like someone stopped and threw a bucket of cold water all over them, interrupting that moment. It changes everything. There is a line at the end of each verse that perfectly captures Grace's feelings when this happens: "I am not ready." Grace struggles with this feeling a lot in the book-- a feeling of not being ready for the challenges and dangers she will face.

So without further ado, I give you "Cold Water."


I have to say, this has been a fun project. I love these songs and I love sharing them with you. Hopefully they are getting you excited for THE LOST SAINT, because it is definitely getting me excited. I can't wait to share the rest of the songs. There are so many on the soundtrack that are favorites and absolutely beautiful songs. Don't forget to comment to get another entry in the countdown contest. Thanks for reading/listening and I'll see you guys back here tomorrow for song 4.

These are beautiful lyrics.

It's hard enough to believe you've left us
But no goodbyes and no signs that you hurt
I could cry like you should of years ago
So I'll see you when I'm ready to go

I really like this song and can't wait to see what it expresses in the book. I have an idea but I could be way off

I love these songs! Can't wait to listen to them while I read TSL :)

Celeste said...

This one i do hear! No need to look for it! :P
By far I think my favorite song, never heard from them before, but I really like it! Which is weird I don't like random songs unless I've heard them twice or thrice before. Love the reindeer and the baby reindeer they are so cute.
I might actually become obsess with this song, all thanks to you. :P

Sam said...

My favorite song so far. I just love the acoustic guitar and being able to hear the singer's voice without it sounding endlessly edited and electronic and fake.

I'm sitting in my kitchen with my roommates, watching the rain outside, playing all the TLS songs and enjoying Christmas pancakes! My favorite kind of day. Thanks for the music!!!
