Feature and Follow Friday: Counting Notes

Parajunkee Alison Can Read


Once you answer be sure to leave me your link so I can follow you back

Q: If Is there a question that reminds you of a book or vice versa? What is the song and the book?

If I were to produce the soundtrack of this book (wouldn't that be a swell job) I would include Trent Dabbs' Counting Sleep. Honestly, the lyrics should speak for themselves:

            Maybe it's just me
  Lately I've been counting sleep
      I had a little talk with time
     Till it turned its back on me

         And I can't unwind
                                                            I can't unwind

              Tell me everything it's on my mind
           I'll fall in line again
               Tell me everything will be alright
         I'm worried about nothing
               Tell me everything it's on my mind
         I'll fall in line again
            Is it me? Cause these days I've been counting sleep
             These days I've been counting sleep

         Sitting in this room
        Wondering how to carry you
    And all the voices they said
    Just to uncheck tonight

     So I figured out
   When trying is done

   Find out the wrong and make it right
    Well tell me if you're afraid of the side by side
   Yeah side by side

(sorry, the only video I could find was from the Vampire Diaries soundtrack. Shame on Dabbs for not having an official video)

  4. Haven't heard of them or the book. But yay for thinking of an example! I am envious by everyone who was able to think of one. I oculdn't really think of one myself because my brain doesn't tend to function that way.

    Although I did think of a really good song that can fit to a book. I just can't think of which book in particular to put it too! I am so weird. ;P

    Here's my Follow Friday
