I am a total sucker for a good love song and I searched through every love song I could think of, trying to find just the perfect songs for the scenes in my books.  You might notice that a lot of them are from the 80s, because I am a total 80s music freak.

 

Unfortunately I couldn't use all of these great songs or the story would have ended up being one huge song-fic.  Some of the songs I didn't use in the books were perfect for other scenes though.

 

Below is a list of songs and the scenes I would have put them in if they were episodes on TV.

Iris
by The Goo Goo Dolls

This song would play in Book 6 before Liz knows about Max and he was watching her from afar.

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
'Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

Higher Love
by Steve Winwood


This song would play in Book 6 when Max sees Liz in the hospital.

Think about it, there must be higher love
Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above
Without it, life is a wasted time
Look inside your heart, I'll look inside mine
Things look so bad everywhere
In this whole world, what is fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Where's that higher love I keep thinking of?

Worlds are turning and we're just hanging on
Facing our fear and standing out there alone
A yearning, and it's real to me
There must be someone who's feeling for me
Things look so bad everywhere
In this whole world, what is fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Where's that higher love I keep thinking of?

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring be a higher love
I could rise above on a higher love
I will wait for it
I'm not too late for it
Until then, I'll sing my song
To cheer the night along
Bring it...oh bring it...

I could light the night up with my soul on fire
I could make the sun shine from pure desire
Let me feel that love come over me
Let me feel how strong it could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Where's that higher love I keep thinking of?

Collide
by Howie Day


This song would play in Book 6 when Max is drawn to the Crashdown to see Liz.

The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you
Yeah

I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face
Light up again

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I collide

I'm quiet you know
You make a first impression
I've found I'm scared to know I'm always on your mind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find
You and I collide

Don't stop here
I lost my place
I'm close behind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to ryhme
Out of the doubt that fills your mind
You finally find
You and I collide

You finally find
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide

Give Me Strength
by The Alarm


This song would play in book 6 when Max tells Liz the truth about what he is.

give me love
give me hope
give me strength
give me someone to live for

Who will light the fire
That I need to survive
Who will be the life blood
Coursing through my veins
Like a river flowing
That will never change
I need someone
I can depend on
'Cause I'm a man of emotions
Who can't hide the tears
I'm a man of feeling
Who can't hide the pain
I'm alone on the outskirts of town
Where no one knows my name
I'm at the point in my life
Where I need affection

won't you
give me love (give me love)
give me hope (give me hope)
give me strength
give me someone to live for
give me love (give me love)
give me hope (give me hope)
give me strength
give me someone to live for
i need it now
i need it now

Someone write me a letter
I need to know that I'm still alive
Someone give me a telephone call
I need to hear a human sound
Someone open up a door
And let me out of this place
I've been caged up for oh so long
I don't know if I'm living or dying

someone better
give me love (give me love)
give me hope (give me hope)
give me strength
give me someone to live for
give me love (give me love)
give me hope (give me hope)
give me strength
give me someone to live for

I walk alone across the outskirts of town
I can't control what I'm going through now
Will you light the fire that I need to survive
Will you donate the life blood
coursing through my veins
Will you open up the door & let me out of this place
I've been caged up for oh so long
I don't know if I'm living or dying

won't you
give me love (give me love)
give me hope (give me hope)
give me strength
give me someone to live for
give me love (give me love)
give me hope (give me hope)
give me strength
give me someone
someone to live for

Is Your Love Strong Enough
by Bryan Ferry


This song would play in book 6 when Max proposes to Liz

Just one step at a time
And closer to destiny
I knew at a glance
There'd always be a chance for me
With someone I could live for
Nowhere I would rather be

Is your love strong enough
Like a rock in the sea
Am I asking too much
Is your love strong enough?

Just one beat of your heart
And stranger than fantasy
I knew from the start
It had to be the place for me
Someone that I would die for
There's no way I could ever leave

Is your love strong enough
Like a rock in the sea
Am I asking too much
Is your love strong enough?

Is your love strong enough?
Just one beat of your heart
Is your love strong enough?
Is your love strong enough?
Is your love strong enough?
Is your love strong enough?
Is your love strong enough?

Just one beat of your heart
Strong enough?
Strong enough?
Just one beat of your heart
Strong enough?
Strong enough?
Just one beat of your heart
Strong enough?
Strong enough?
Just one beat of your heart
Strong enough?
Strong enough?
Just one beat of your heart
Strong enough?
Strong enough?
Just one beat of your heart

King for Just One Day
by Thompson Twins


This song would play in Book 6 when Sam and Cuerena tell Max who he is and Max asks Liz not to leave him

I know you well
And I can tell
Something's on your mind
'Cos in your dreams
The demon screams
And I know he's going to hurt you blind

You say you hunger for something you can't get at all
And love is not enough anymore

if i was king for just one day
i would give it all away
i would give it all away to be with you
if i was king for just one day
i had just one thing to say
you know that love is
all we need to get us through

diamond rings
and all those things
they never sparkle like your smile
and as for fame
it's just a name
that only satisfies you for a while

you say you hunger for something you can't get at all
and love is not enough anymore

if i was king for just one day
i would give it all away
i would give it all away to be with you
if i was king for just one day
i had just one thing to say
you know that love is
all we need to get us through

i've heard it said
or maybe read
only money makes the world go 'round
but all the gold
won't heal your soul
if your world should tumble to the ground
you say you hunger for something you can't get at all
and love is not enough anymore

so listen,
love is all, love is all, love is all we need
love is all, love is all, love is all we need yeah.
love is all, love is all, love is all we need
love is all, love is all, love is all we need yeah.
if i was king for just one day
i would give it all away
i would give it all away to be with you
if i was king for just one day
i had just one thing to say
you know that love is
all we need to get us through

if i was king
for just one day
for just one thing to say
love...

How Deep Is Your Love?
by The Bee Gees


This song would play in Book 6 when Max and Liz decide to elope

I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again

And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love and then softly leave
And it's me you need to show ....

How deep is your love? (how deep is your love?)
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You're the light in my deepest darkest hour
You're my saviour when I fall
And you may not think
I care for you
When you know down inside
That I really do
And it's me you need to show ....

How deep is your love? (how deep is your love?)
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

How deep is your love? (how deep is your love?)
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

How deep is your love? (how deep is your love?)

World in My Eyes
by Depeche Mode


This song would play in Book 6 on Max and Liz's wedding night.

Let me take you on a trip
Around the world and back
And you won't have to move
You just sit still

Now let your mind do the walking
And let my body do the talking
Let me show you the world in my eyes

I'll take you to the highest mountain
To the depths of the deepest sea
We won't need a map, believe me

Now let my body do the moving
And let my hands do the soothing
Let me show you the world in my eyes

That's all there is
Nothing more than you can feel now
That's all there is

Let me put you on a ship
On a long, long trip
Your lips close to my lips
All the islands in the ocean
All the heaven's in the motion
Let me show you the world in my eyes

That's all there is
Nothing more than you can touch now
That's all there is

Let me show you the world in my eyes

Be Near Me
by ABC


This song would play in Book 6 when Max and Liz take a walk by the river after he talks to Nicholas on the orb.

The message is perfectly simple
The meaning is clear
Don't ever stray too far
And don't dissappear

Ever had the feeling, almost broke in two?
Never had that feeling like you do, you do?

All my dreams came true last night
All my hopes and fears
All my dreams came true once more
In tears, in tears

Be near me,
be near,
be near...

Never had that feeling until I first met you
Never felt like kneeling. Now I do. Yes I do.

All my dreams came true last night
All my hopes and fears
All my dreams came true once more
In tears, in tears

Be near me,
be near

What's your reputation? Ecstasy!
What's your destination? Next to me!

One More Time
by The Cure


This song would play in Book 6 when Max is healing Liz and they share a connection for the first time

I'd love to touch the sky tonight
I'd love to touch the sky
So take me in your arms
And lift me like a child
And hold me up so high
And never let me go
Take me
Take me in your arms tonight

Hold me
Hold me up so high
And never let me down
Hold me
Hold me up so high
To touch the sky
Just one more time

Take me in your arms tonight
Take me in your arms
Just one more time
Just one more time
Just one more time
