You Kill Me (In A Goodway)

That’s right…It’s Monday again! On this Music Monday, I’ve decided to honor one of my blog tour stops bloggers–Kylee, THIS one is for you! Kylee and I connected in a reading group, but once we were friends I noticed that we both have very good taste in music! I’ve enjoyed not only discussing novels, but music with her! Now, from this I know that her favorite band and unhealthy obsession (or so she says, I on the other hand, don’t feel that music can be unhealthy…well, except for death metal…scary!) is Sleeping with Sirens.

SONG: You Kill Me (in a good way)

ARTIST: Sleeping with Sirens

CD: With ears to hear and eyes to see

GENRE: Post-hardcore, Pop Rock

LYRICS:

I know that hope weighs on your mind, lost within the seams,
it seems like we lose ourselves in between.
But the harder things become, the harder you push away.
Oh baby, yeah baby, it kills me.

You said it, you said it
I’ll take you at your word.
These promises that you can’t keep,
it’s getting harder to hold on.
You said it, you said it
don’t ever let me fall.
Don’t give up because you’re losing
(you haven’t lost).

In time you’ll find that we can sober up,
clean up any dirt so we can open up.
These wounds have been open for forever now.
Come on, be strong.
Your mind has gotten the best of you.
You’ve done enough and you are enough.
Let’s fall asleep tonight,
I’ll hold you close and show you you’re not broken.

You said it, you said it
I’ll take you at your word.
These promises that you can’t keep,
it’s getting harder to hold on.
You said it, you said it
don’t ever let me fall.
Don’t give up because you’re losing

(Hold on)

Don’t you think if it’s meant to be, it will be?
Don’t you think things will work out eventually?
Hold on.

You said it, you said it
I’ll take you at your word.
These promises that you can’t keep,
it’s getting harder to hold on.
You said it, you said it
don’t ever let me fall.
Don’t give up because you’re losing.

ANALYSIS: Okay, so at first I thought…man, this sounds like Sky Lit Drive, which I can only tolerate in very small doses. It is similar, and the singer sounds so much like Sky Lit Drive, but when the screaming kicks in on this song–well, that sold me. What else sold me? Solid riffs, and lyrics. I’m quite enjoying the “repeat” feature here. The lead singer sounds slightly female from the high tone in his voice, which is why I automatically thought Sky Lit Drive. My husband mentioned something about Coheed and Cambria, but I know the name, but not the band. The issue with a lot of metal is that, for me, sometimes the artists start to blend into each other. The first time I heard this band was on my Blessthefall radio (FYI Blessthefall is one of my top ever bands), and I honestly thought it was this song because I felt the same way then.

Here is Kylee’s review on her blog Babbling of a Bookaholic:

Title: Walking in the Shadows
Author: Cassandra Giovanni
Published: October 27th, 2012
Book rating: 4 stars
Cover rating: 5 stars
Having read Cassandra’s debut novel In Between Seasons I must point out I feel like this book showed a different style of writing and she can definitely pull of both! In her debut novel she told the story of Kate and Hunter through dialogue. In Walking she tells the story in a completely different way and after reading her first novel I had felt she could only get better as an author and I was completely right! I absolutely loved Walking! This book is not only a romance novel but a mystery. Tad and Abigail’s (I’m going to be using her real name, not the one she was given for protection.) relationship was so cute. I was cheering for them the entire time just wanting them to be able to be with each other and happy without complications or problems to stop them! If I didn’t like Abigail so much as a character I’d go and snatch Tad up from her because let me tell you he is SWOON worthy!! This man is drop dead sexy and so, so sweet! The way he is portrayed throughout the story by Cassandra was perfect and his name is definitely on the never ending list of my book boyfriends. I love how strong he tried to be throughout the book and how he ended up always trying to fight for his relationship with Abigail instead of just giving up like she suggested they do. Abigail was such a strong person, I can not imagine how difficult it would be to lose your parents from a serial killer let alone lose them in general. It was so hard for me to watch her beat herself up throughout the story and not see what was so obvious. She had been through so much and come out the other side, if someone was put in her situation half of them wouldn’t be able to come out as strong! I think Tad did a great job trying to show her how beautiful a person she truly was! Okay, enough ranting about how perfect Tad was. The mystery side of this novel comes from the fact that the serial killer decided to be psycho and follow poor Abigail to her new life. The killer decides to strike again and Abigail feels like she’s going to be next. I assumed who the killer was earlier on in the book but when I was actually told who it was I was completely freaked out. The killer is literally some psycho path who needs to be locked up in a mental hospital!! I loved the twist of the Crimson Reign aspect of the murders and I highly recommend you all read this book. The story was beautifully written and the ending was perfect, I was definitely tearing up! It was such a great book, I didn’t it to end.
