Friday Plot Swap~ Musical Style

Dawn's Plot Swap

Have a plot? Leave one.

Need a plot ? Take one.

We haven't had a musical swap in a while.

For some reason I got on a Drink and Dial Kick. :)
This is what I have for you this week:


Last Call
Lee Ann Womack
I recognized your number,
It's burned into my brain,
Felt my heart beating faster,
Every time it rang.
Some things never change,
That's why I didn't answer.





My favorite line:
I bet you're in a bar.
It's always the same old song.
That Johnny Walker Red,
By now it's almost gone.
But baby, I won't be there
To catch you when you fall.
I bet you're in bar
'Cause I'm always your last call

What do you want from me?
Jerrod Niemann
Why’d you call me today with nothing new to say?
You pretend it’s just hello, but you know what it does to me to see your number on the phone.


My Favorite line:

What do you want me to say?
That I’m content? That I’m on the fence? That I wish you would’ve stayed?
Oh baby what do you want, what do you want, what do you want from me?
To come here and make love tonight cause you’re feelin’ lonely.



Lips of an Angel
Jack Ingram
Honey, why you calling me so late? It's kinda hard to talk right now. Honey, why you crying? is everything okay? I gotta whisper cause I can't be too loud Well, my girl's in the next room Sometimes I wish she was you I guess we never really moved on


My favorite line:
Does he know you're talking to me? Will it start a fight?
No, I don't think she has a clue

On Again Tonight
Trent Willmon

I'm glad you picked up the phone.Yeah, I know that we both agreed,We'd leave each other alone.We're just wastin' our time,We know it ain't right.There's no goin' back, but havin' said that:




My Favorite line:
I don't expect things to change.
We've got to get on with our lives.
Space is a beautiful thing,
When you need some room.
I don't know about you, but I'm lonely right now:
I'm just thinkin' out loud.

So, swap with me. Any of your characters pulling a drunk and dial?
What songs do you have going through your head this week?
What would you make of these?




Friday Plot Swap~ Musical Style

Dawn's Plot Swap
Have a plot? Leave one
Need a plot ? Take one 
 
In honor of Olivia Kelly's guest post yesterday, I decided to make today a musical swap. I dug into my OneNote files and pulled out some of my character's theme songs. 
 Here is what I have for you today: 
 
This is Justin's song. He's hesitant to leave his heart unprotected again, but he can't deny his feelings for Charleigh.
I almost said I love you
Could I really be that kind of guy
See one candle burning in your eye
And watch my heart fill up with butterflies
I almost said I need you
Girl I shouldn't go there anymore
Act like I never been in love before
You probably think it's my first time
 
This one is for Luke. Poor guy, he had convinced himself he was over Gloria. Never wanted to see her again. Until the day he come home to find her sleeping in his bed. 
You took a hammer to these walls,
Dragged the memories down the hall,
Packed your bags and walked away.
There was nothing I could say.
And when you slammed the front door shut,
A lot of others opened up,
So did my eyes so I could see
That you never were the best for me.
 
 
And last, we have this for Race. The world he ruled was shattered when the witness he was protecting died in front him.  But, now, Haylie is standing in front of him, needing more protection than he could ever offer.  

 
I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning, I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own
* I prefer this version, but Coldplay's isn't bad either.
 
So swap me ! What songs fit your characters? Or your story? What songs tell the story you wish you could write?
