Be There For Me?

While writing my books, certain songs have meaning when I hear them as they represent my characters.  My second book called Broken has two troubled main characters.  Jackson allows his past to control his life and he oftentimes messes things up for his beloved Andi.  When I heard the song “Be There For Me” by Thornley, my heart swelled because this was his song to her.  The lyrics are perfect and the song is awesome.  

Listen to the song here.

“Be There For Me”

I’m having one of those days

where I feel like I’m in reverse
And everything that I say
sounds like it’s been rehearsed

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t let it go too far, boy
Don’t let it go too far
Don’t let it, don’t let it go too far

[Chorus]
While everyone tears me apart,
would you be there for me?
Could you be there for me?
And I’m always breaking your heart,
but will you be there for me?
Could you be there for me?

So just how strong are those arms
as they carry the weight of the world?
And just how far is too far
‘Cause the boy always loses the girl

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t let it go too far, boy
Don’t let it go too far
Don’t let it, don’t let it go too far

[Chorus]
While everyone tears me apart,
would you be there for me?
Could you be there for me?
And I’m always breaking your heart,
but could you be there for me?
Would you be there for me?

I always thought that the mind was a waste of time
Yeah, now I think that those thoughts are a friend of mine
Yeah, could you be there for me?

[Chorus]
While everyone tears me apart,
would you be there for me?
Would you be there for me?

Don’t let it go too far, boy
Don’t let it go too far
Don’t let it, don’t let it go too far [x8]

Could you be there for me?

Even the broken people who continually make mistakes, like Jackson, deserve love and forgiveness.
