TOP TEN TUESDAY: Songs I Wish Were Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week's theme is Books and Music. We had the option of choosing between two topics, Books We'd Give Theme Songs To or Songs I Wish Were Books. I am so excited for this week's theme! One of my favorite parts of this blog is combing books with other elements one of which is music. Every now and then I put up playlists that have been inspired by a book.

What I've learned about myself from making this list is that I am craving a good contemporary romance. Be right back, I need to go reread all my favorites. Also, just thought you should know that clicking on the song title will take you to a YouTube video of the song.

Car Radio | twenty one pilots
"I have these thoughts so often I ought to replace that slot with what I once bought, because somebody stole my car radio, and now I just sit in silence."

Please Don't Say You Love Me | Gabrielle Aplin
"Just please don't say you love me, because I might not say it back."

Luck | American Authors
"I'm sorry, mother. I know I let you down. I'm sorry for how I up and left this town."

Nothing Lasts Forever | Maroon 5
"It is so easy to see dysfunction between you and me. We must free up these tired souls before the sadness kills us both."

All You Ever | Hunter Hayes
"You gave me chances. I let you down. You waited for words that I couldn't get out. I have no excuses for the way that I am. I was clueless, and I couldn't understand."

Enchanted | Taylor Swift
"There I was again tonight forcing laughter, faking smiles. Same old tired lonely place. Walls of insincerity, shifting eyes, and vacancy. Vanished when I saw your face. All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you. Your eyes whispered, "Have we met?" Across the room your silhouette starts to make its way to me."

With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear | Sleeping with Sirens
"So tell me how does it feel, how does it feel to be like you? I think your mouth should be quiet because it never tells the truth."

The acoustic version leaves out one of my favorite parts of the song:
"I'll be there to see the tower you'll fall from. No, this kingdom isn't quite what it may seem. You're an illusion, you'll never be king."

I'll Hold My Breath | Ellie Goulding
"Until you see me in your dreams we'll stay awake beneath the trees. We'll watch the buildings turn to dust. A sky of diamonds just for us. You are the risk I'll always take. The only branch I'll never break."

Way Away | Yellowcard
"I think I'm breaking out. I'm gonna leave you now. There's nothing for me here. It's all the same."

All I Wanted | Paramore
"I think I'll pace my apartment a few times, and fall asleep on the couch. And wake up early to black and white reruns that escape from my mouth."

Please leave links to your posts if you participated this week. This is one of my favorite Top Ten Tuesday topics so far!


  1. I'm pretty sure anything by twenty one pilots would make an excellent book. :)

    Check out my TTT and my current giveaway.

  2. All You Ever by Hunter Hayes would make such a good book, as would the Sleeping with Sirens song.

  3. Enchanted would make a great book!
    My TTT:

  4. Great list! So many of these would be amazing, especially Luck and Please Don't Say You Love Me - they are also great songs anyway! Enchanted would also be such a magical book.
