Mood Music  
A couple songs that have set the mood for my latest set of stories are down below the curtain.






I always have music in my mind when I'm writing. Over the last few weeks, these are a few of the songs that set the mood for my writing and for the characters.

Crazy Faith by Alison Krauss & Union Station

I lit my love and watched it burn:
Asking nothing in return.
Except the lessons I will learn.
From holding crazy faith.

I've been touched by that bright fire.
Down to the root of my desire,
While the smoke, it rises higher.
Glowing crazy faith.

You're not asking if I love this man.
I know you don't, you don't believe you can.
Yet I've seen love open like a dancers fan.
It's crazy, I know, but my faith says so:
It tells me.

Am I a fool for hanging on?
Would I be a fool for being long gone.
When is daylight gonna dawn,
On my crazy faith.

The questions will not let me sleep,
The dance is buried way too deep.
But the bottom lover, lover's keep,
Made by crazy faith.

You're not asking if I love this man.
I know you don't, you don't believe you can.
Yet I've seen the love open like a dancers fan.
It's crazy, I know, but my faith says so:
It tells me.

Love you're losin', lose you love,
Let the hawk fly from the glove.
Do not search the skies above.
Search your crazy faith.

Love is lightning, love is ice.
It only strikes the lucky twice.
Once so you will know the price.
And once for crazy faith.

You're not asking if I love this man.
I know you don't, you don't believe you can.
Yet I've seen the love open like a dancers fan.
It's crazy, I know, but my faith says so.


It Doesn’t Matter also by Alison Krauss
(this one is actually on the BtVS soundtrack)

It doesn't matter what I want
It doesn't matter what I need
It doesn't matter if I cry
Don't matter if I bleed
You've been on a road
Don't know where it goes or where it leads

It doesn't matter what I want
It doesn't matter what I need
If you've made up your mind to go
I won't beg you to stay
You've been in a cage
Throw you to the wind you fly away

It doesn't matter what I want
It doesn't matter what I need
It doesn't matter if I cry
Doesn't matter if I bleed
Feel the sting of tears
Falling on this face you've loved for years

Here's my Alison Krauss and Union Station inspirations:

"So Long So Wrong"

I know I'll be lonesome
That brings about a little fear
I know I'll be sad and I'll be blue
I have given the best of me
When I forgot to say to you
What you forgot to say to me
So long, so wrong

I have tried and cared, baby, it was never enough
Cause in your mind I never had a clue
So I'll repave the same old road I'm on
Where I forgot to say to you
What you forgot to say to me
So long, so wrong

Did we take forever in vain
Into the past
Did we think forever was really gonna last

You have tired me with your wanting ways
You can't buy yourself to be complete
I have given up caring anymore
Once you were big in a world that's small
And now you're all alone

Have we taken forever in vain
Into the past
Did we think forever was really gonna last


"Let Me Touch You For Awhile"

It's been a long time coming
As you shed a lonesome tear
And now you're in a wonderama
I wonder what you're doing here
The flame no longer flickers
You're feeling just like a fool
You keep staring into your liquor
Wondering what to do

I don't hardly know you
But I'd be willing to show you
I know a way to make you smile
Let me touch you for awhile

I'm gonna ruin my black mascara
You're drinking whisky when it should be wine
You keep looking into that mirror
But to me you're looking really fine

I don't hardly know you
But I'd be willing to show you
I know a way to make you
Laugh at that cowgirl as she's walking out your door
I know a way to make you smile
Just let me whisper things you've never heard before
Just let me touch you, baby
Just let me touch you for a while

I don't hardly know you
But I'd be willing to show you
I know a way to make you smile

It's been a long time
Let me touch you for a while

The last one inspired all of "The Touch."

I honestly think that without music I couldn't write a line. Or at least not be inspired to write.
