AWESOME !! MUSICAL INTERVIEW & GIVEAWAYS - BOOKS!!! WITH THE ONE AND ONLY JULIE KAGAWA AUTHOR OF THE IRON FEY SERIES & HER NEW SERIES BLOOD OF EDEN, YES IT'S VAMPIRES!!!

I would like to welcome the mega talented JULIE KAGAWA to Novels On The Run and give her a WHOPPING HUGE THANKYOU for agreeing to answer my Musical Interview Q's and for agreeing to pick the 2 winners in my giveaway below. But you must read this interview to successfully be able to enter the giveaways.


Now I had a bit of a think and I wanted to try something a little different. I usually ask this as a bit of a signature question of mine as part of my interview Q’s when interviewing authors, and it is quite popular, so I thought I would make the whole interview around the music of characters and their relationships. Just to try and bring something a bit different to the table.


I love singing and can't sing to save myself.  I sing like nobody is holding their hands over their ears and I sound like Beyonce...hehe!!  So, I am not asking Julie anything other than the music that best expresses her characters and a special one at the end. ( Loved!! the answer)



LATEST NEWS!!! 23/5/12


The Giveaway below,  Julie Kagawa has actually put this giveaway up on her page....yes I know!!! She liked the contest that much that she is throwing in a paperback, same question to be answered for US/CANADA only entrants. So once you have read and scrolled down to giveaway section of this posting and entered, if you are US/Canada ,pop over to Julie's Page ( click here)  and bung a song down there and you have another chance. Don't put same song  down as that would be a bit odd as Julie is judging this giveaway for Aussie and INTERNATIONAL winners ( same song on both my page and her page won't make sense , she can't choose it twice). US and Canada welcome to enter here as you come under umbrella of International. But you can be in with another chance to win on Julie's page.


Michelle:  Could you please give me the song that expresses to you, the following characters/relationship in The Immortal Rules for each of the following and a little bit of the why?
Allison Sekemoto, Kanin, Zeke, Sarren, Allison & Kanin's friendship, Allison & Zeke's friendship, Allison & Ruth's relationship and Jackal .









 Allison Sekemoto: 

Monster by Skillet.

Julie:  Just listen to the lyrics. "I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin. I must confess that I feel like a monster. I hate what I've become, the nightmares' just begun. I must confess that I feel like a monster." It perfectly describes Allie's struggle with being a vampire.










 Kanin:

Unknown Soldier by Breaking Benjamin.


Julie: I don't know why, this song just seems to fit Kanin.








Zeke:

Weight of the World by Framing Hanley.


Julie:  Loyal and protective, Zeke is always trying to take the burden away from others, even Allison. Even if it means taking it on himself.






 Sarren:

Sunshine in a Bag by Gorillaz.


Julie: Sarren is slightly crazy and a lot creepy, so this song I felt just fit.


Michelle: Ooo , Yes I do love this for Sarren * nods *






SUNSHINE IN A BAG - GORILLAZ
(Lyrics incase of sing-a-long)

Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
I ain't happy, I' m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long the future is comin' on

I ain't happy, I' m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long the future is comin' on
is comin' on is comin' on is comin' on is comin' on

(poof)
Yeah, ha ha
Finally someone let me outa' my cage
Now time for me is nothin' cuz I'm countin' no age
Naw I couldn't be there, now you shouldn't be scared
I'm good at repairs (s'all simple), and I'm under each snare
Intangible (aww naw), bet you didn't think so I command you to
Panoramic view (you), look I'll make it all manageable
Pick and choose (hmph), sit and loose, all you different crews
Chicks and dudes, who you think is really kickin' tunes
Picture you gettin down in a picture too, like you lit the fuse
You think it's fictional, mystical, maybe
Spiritual, hear all who appears in you to clear your view when (yeah) your too crazy
Lifeless, to those a definition for what life is
Priceless, to you because I put you on the hype shit
Ya like it
Gun smokin', righteous with one, token psychic among
they'll posess you with one go

I ain't happy, I' m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long the future is comin' on

I ain't happy, I' m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long the future (that's right) is comin' on
is comin' on is comin' on is comin' on is comin' on

The essence, the basics
Without it you make it
Allow me to make this childlike in nature
Rythm, you have it or you don't
That's a fallacy
I'm in them
Every sprouting tree, every child apiece
Every cloud at sea
You see with your eyes, I see destruction and demise
Corruption in the skies (that's right)
From this fuckin' enterprise, now I'm sucked into your lies
Through Russ so not his muscles but percussion he provides
With me as a (say what) guide
Y'all can see me now cuz you don't see with you eye
You percieve with your mind
Thats the end (fuck em)
So I'ma stick around with Russ and be a mentor
Bust a few rhymes (bah boom boom boom boom) so mother fuckers remember where the thought is
I brought all this, so you can survive when law is lawless(why here)
Feelings, sensations that you thought was dead (yup)
No squeeling, remember that it's all in your head

I ain't happy, I' m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long the future is comin' on

I ain't happy, I' m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long my future is comin' on
is comin' on is comin' on is comin' on is comin' on
My future (future) is comin' on
is comin' on (future future future) is comin' on is comin' on is comin' on
My future is comin' on
is comin' on (future future future) is comin' on is comin' on is comin' on
My future is comin' on
is comin' on is comin' on
My future is comin' on
is comin' on is comin' on (future future future)
My future is comin' on
is comin' on is comin' on
My future



Allison and Kanin’s Friendship:

Julie:  I honestly could not find a good song for Allie and Kanin, though I know there is probably a perfect one out there somewhere. They have such a complex relationship, not really father-daughter, although Kanin is her sire and teaches her everything she needs to know about being a vampire. Possibly their relationship could be classified as mentor-student, but if anyone has the perfect song, I'd love to hear it.


Michelle:  Now because I stumped Julie on this Q, I thought why not have a giveaway and ask the people. Julie has wonderfully accepted the role of judge and will choose 2 winners for this question.   What song best represents Allison and Kanin’s friendship? Keep reading this interview then enter and Julie may choose you? I think she is rather keen to hear what you all think?



 Allison and Zeke’s Friendship: 

Awake and Alive by Skillet.

Julie: My favorite Skillet song, this also tells Allie and Zeke's struggle with their faith, their friendship, and coming to terms with what they believe in a world that wants to tear them apart.


Another good one is Arms by Christina Perri, as Allie is always trying to distance herself from Zeke, and yet can't help but fall for him.









 Allison and Ruth:

What is this Feeling? from the Wicked soundtrack.

Julie: Lol, basically this is a song describing how much they loathe each other.








Bahhhahahahhaaa!!
 I did laugh when I heard this…….good choice!





Julie: Jackal


Ain't no Rest for the Wicked by Cage the Elephant.






Michelle:  Could you also please tell me the song that would best express Julie Kagawa?



Julie:
 Anything but Ordinary 
by Avril Lavigne.

Michelle: I love this!! Wouldn't it be awesome if we could all be brave like this song and just be anything but ordinary?







Michelle:  Thankyou Julie for playing along and giving us some wonderful music that expresses your characters.....and you! We wish you all the best with your writing and any movie deals. I think everybody who reads The Iron Fey series falls in love with it.

And, you are never to old to SquEeeeEeee over Ash ( looks in mirror)

Sentimental Education - Washington 




Lyrics

Sentimental Education

Didn't I, Didn't you, Didn't we say…
Didn't I, Didn't you, Didn't we say…
So you walking home from your second job,
and a melody's forming out of sobs
and I want to change but I don't know how
and I want to change but I'm too much who I am now

Oh, Oh, could you feel it?
Could you feel it coming?
Such a sentimental education
You sleep seven streets away from me,
I went to see you,
You were sucking on her neck and didn't see

I know, that you'll carry on
I know this is wrong, this is wrong
I'm going home, home
I'm going home, home
I could feel it, 
I did feel it, I did feel it coming
Didn't I?

Haunted - Taylor Swift



or

Solitary - Skye Edwards 



Lyrics

Solitary

You said the thing you said and you twisted me up
I don't feel any different but there it is in my head
Stuck like glue, like a molecule
Like my brain, a speeding train
I'll never be the same
Will we always be the same

You did the thing you did, and it twisted me up
Now I'm wrestling with reality
Waiting for the bell to ring
And you kill me, you still me
Come find me, don't loose me
That is all I want, that is all I want

The sky, the rising sun... Solitary
And you my only one... Solitary

And in the morning when I wash my face
I see happy, I see hired
I see ugly, I see peaceful
I'm waiting, running, I'm not angry or wired
I just get a little worried simetimes

Then I do the things I do, but they still twist me up
I'm wrestling with my sanity
Listening for the bell to ring
And I kill me, I fool me
Can't find me, don't loose me
That is all I want, that is all I want

The sky, the rising sun... Solitary
And you my only only one... Solitary
No time, no end believe... Solitary

You did the thing you did, and it twisted me up
Now I'm wrestling with reality
Waiting for the bell to ring
And you kill me, you still me
Come find me, don't loose me
That is all I want, that is all I want

The sky, the rising sun... Solitary
And you my only one... Solitary
The shore is to the sea... Solitary
And in the end we'll be... Solitary

  1. The cover is what first caught my attention. I must admit that I have only gotten through half of Ms. Kagawa's Iron Fey series, and while I plan on finishing it one day, it's not at the top of my list. Hearing that she had a vampire series starting intrigued me and I immediately sought after a copy. The almost 500 pages was a big plus for me, and it went by fairly quickly. There wasn't a desperate need to inhale it, but I was mildly entertained. I didn't have any big emotion moments (like trepidation, anger, creepiness), but it was good enough.

    Another confession is that Allie was A LOT easier for me to stomach than Meghan from the Iron Fey series. She was cold, calculating, but still had a heart, and was not a whinner. She'll fight her own battles thank you very much! That being said, even after nearly 500 pages of following her story I don't feel that I know her that well. She's a bit of a cliched dystopian character; OK, but not entirely memorable. Zeke was only OK as well. Yeah, he had his moments, but....I wasn't feeling the attraction. Yes, I wanted it to happen, and no it didn't feel entirely forced, but they will not go down as my most favorite couple.

  2. Hello, I love reading and my email address is: danameishzee@hotmail.com
    AUSSIE! ;) I don't know about anything about the book characters, and I'd rather not spoil it to find a song, but I love Coldplay, and some songs by Linkin Park go well with most of the books I read. :)

    I haven't read the book so I have no clue which song would suit but the above picks are great! :)

  5. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I'd choose Running Scared by Ell and Nikki. It's an popular song here in Europe! It represents the fight and the love and the friendship!

  6. I'm from Holland, so International.
    I think "Shousa ni wa Houbi O" the soundtrack of the Anime "Blood C" will describe Allie's & Kanin's relationship best. From what I've read in the book, it seems like their relationship is kinda a bittersweet love/hate relationship with a tragic undertone (maybe that will happen in book 2?).

    Thanks for the giveaway & love the post with the songs! I have them on my i-pod now, lol.

    Wow some songs have come rolling in...I shall look these up as I am intrigued to hear them. I may even do an ongoing posting below this one to add the vids for the songs people are choosing so Julie can see them easily and hear them. She is quite excited to hear what the fans think as she herself couldn't think of one. How col is that, Julie picking the 2 winners!!

    Keep the songs coming in, I am loving the enthusiasm!!

  10. Well, I don't have a facebook, so I thought I could skip to the next step? :P I love Julie's writing, love the cover of the immortal rules and love.. well, EVERYTHING! So thank you for hosting this contest! (especially since you're a fellow Aussie!;) ) so! Ali and Kanin.... hmm. I think that this song fits them! Aftermath Adam Lambert. I dunno, I just think it kinda works. ;P but my goodness this is hard! XD and is it cheating to do two? it's just that neither PERFECTLY fits, y'know? So my other song is Bring Me To Life by Evanescence. Which is kindaironic given that he takes her life, but he teachers her how to "live'!

    1. Jesse,

      If the song fits or is close to expressing their relationship, it doesn't matter if you put down a couple songs, that's fine:D I kinda like the sound of Bring Me To Life.

      When I get a few more songs I will start a posting below this one that others can hear the musical entries:D

      Well Done for giving it a go:D

  11. Just a note: You have to pick a song by a band/singer to be in running so that it is fair to those that have thought of a song. That is the requirements. This is open until 7th June so plenty of time to come back and write a specific song from Coldplay or whoever you think. Listen to a couple and you may find one that suits. It may be easier when I get the posting up with the song choices people have submitted:D

    1. Omg, oh no. I submitted a soundtrack that is not by a band or singer...But I thought really hard about my song choice though, as you can see in my comment above. What do I do now?

    2. Angkarina,

      I still put your musical choice down for Julie to listen to. It's what you liked so she may like what you have chosen. If you want to add one with singing /lyrics that's ok to. I have you in the running to win as you picked music:D If you scroll up you will see yours showing. I have already let Julie know she can drop by whenever she wants and check out the music as it is listed. I put it up so others get an idea and also I listen to the music while I am on the computer:D

    3. Thanks for clarifying things up for me =)! Yeah, I've listened to other people's song suggestions too and some are really good choices!
      If you don't me me asking another question: What about submitting more than 1 song? I see that people have done that, so isn't that kind of weird? I mean, if everyone enter multiple songs, isn't that kinda unfair to other people who've entered 1 song? Don't mean to bash or anything, I'm just curious because usually we only get 1 entry in a contest of any kind xD

      Delete
    4. Hi Angkarina,

      It is ok to enter more songs if you choose. I will leave that upto the individual entrant but let's say no more than 5 per person. So Jesse is at 5 now. It really is about me getting entrants to have fun and think up a song they feel inspired to reflect Kanin and Allisons relationship. I loved my question as it makes this giveaway more interesting and fun. I am LOVING the entrants are going to the trouble to really THINK about this giveaway Q. Feel free to do upto 5 songs/music per entrant as Julie will be looking at this at her leisure up until 7th June 2012. Only certain songs will reflect their relationship.
      Have fun everyone:D

  16. Just a note:

    The people I have listed up above with their musical choice, be it with or without lyrics, what ever makes you 'feel' the character's relationship are entered into the giveaway. You must choose music/song as those are the entry rules. Again, plenty of time for the people in comments who haven't listed a song, come back and do so or you can't be in the running, sorry. I spoke to Media company and Harlequin Teen and organised the Aussie paperback with this Q being the entry into the giveaway and I am also paying for a book so INTL can win too:D

    This is supposed to be a creative giveaway that gets people thinking! I know Julie Kagawa loves music and she is very happy to judge this giveaway...who knows???? I am just talking off the top of my head, but the song may make it to a soundtrack oneday..stranger things have happened:D This is about thinking outside of the box. I have had way over 300 views of this giveaway, already, I would love more entries as I love what you guys are coming up with:D

    1. Well… there’s nothing in the rule’s that say I can’t enter multiple times! :P so, I’ve been looking around for the “perfect” song, but nothing really seems to fit. Then I stumbled upon Sentimental Education by Washington and I think it’s the best song I’ve found so far. So, here’s the lyrics and a youtube link!

      Didn't I, Didn't you, Didn't we say…
      Didn't I, Didn't you, Didn't we say…
      So you walking home from your second job,
      and a melody's forming out of sobs
      and I want to change but I don't know how
      and I want to change but I'm too much who I am now

      Oh, Oh, could you feel it?
      Could you feel it coming?
      Such a sentimental education
      You sleep seven streets away from me,
      I went to see you,
      You were sucking on her neck and didn't see

      I know, that you'll carry on
      I know this is wrong, this is wrong
      I'm going home, home

      I did feel it, I did feel it coming
      Didn't I?

      I also think that Haunted by Taylor Swift isn’t bad, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAE373vwB_w),
      Solitary by Skye Edwards is good:

      You said the thing you said and you twisted me up
      I don't feel any different but there it is in my head
      Stuck like glue, like a molecule

    I'm an INTERNATIONAL.

    I haven't read the book,yet.So,from the description I'm choosing....

    "Wind Beneath My Wings" - Bette Midler - 1989

    Lyrics:
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    It must have been cold there in my shadow
    To never have sunlight on your face
    You were content to let me shine, that's your way
    You always walked a step behind

    So, I was the one with all the glory
    While you were the one with all the strength
    A beautiful face without a name for so long
    A beautiful smile to hide the pain

    Did you ever know that you're my hero
    And everything I would like to be
    I can fly higher than an eagle
    you are the wind beneath my wings

    It might have appeared to go unnoticed
    But I've got it all here in my heart
    I want you to know, I know the truth, of course I know it
    I would be nothing without you

    Did you ever know that you're my hero
    You're everything I wish I could be
    If could fly higher than an eagle
    you are the wind beneath my wings

    Did I ever tell you you're my hero
    You're everything, everything I wish I could be
    Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle
    you are the wind beneath my wings
    Cause you are the wind beneath my wings

    Oh, the wind beneath my wings
    You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings
    Fly, fly, fly away, you let me fly so high
    Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings
    Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings
    Fly, fly, so high against the sky
    So high, I almost touch the sky
    Thank you, thank you, thank God for you
    The wind beneath my wings

  19. Hi, I'm from the Philippines and I think the song Savior by Rise Against fit their relationship
    kimmylim.royalty@gmail.com

    lyrics:
    It kills me not to know this but I've all but just forgotten
    What the color of her eyes were and her scars or how she got them
    As the telling signs of age rain down a single tear is dropping
    Through the valleys of an aging face that this world has forgotten
    There is no reconciliation that will put me in my place
    And there is no time like the present to drink these draining seconds
    But seldom do these words ring true when I'm constantly failing you
    Like walls that we just can't break through until we disappear

    So tell me now
    If this ain't love then how do we get out?
    Because I don't know
    That's when she said I don't hate you boy
    I just want to save you while there's still something left to save
    That's when I told her I love you girl
    But I'm not the answer for the questions that you still have

    But the day pressed on like crushing weights
    For no man does it ever wait
    Like memories of dying days
    That deafen us like hurricanes
    Bathed in flames we held the brand
    Uncurled the fingers in your hand
    Pressed into the flesh like sand
    Now do you understand?

    So tell me now
    If this ain't love then how do we get out?
    Because I don't know
    That's when she said I don't hate you boy
    I just want to save you while there's still something left to save
    That's when I told her I love you girl
    But I'm not the answer for the questions that you still have

    1000 miles away
    There's nothing left to say
    But so much left that I don't know
    We never had a choice
    This world is too much noise
    It takes me under
    It takes me under once again
    I don't hate you
    I don't hate you, no

    So tell me now
    If this ain't love then how do we get out?
    Because I don't know
    That's when she said I don't hate you boy
    I just want to save you while there's still something left to save
    That's when I told her I love you girl
    But I'm not the answer for the questions that you still have

    I don't hate you
    I don't hate you, no

    - it shows allison in the end going to save him and even though she hates vampires, and kanin was the vampire who went to the scientist, she doesnt hate him and how the world is and how many years kanin went through

  20. Hi I'm following GFC as SL Chan and SL M Chan on Facebook and my email is masurinREMOVETHIS@gmail.com

    Anyway I think here's a couple of songs that fit Allison + Kanin (though I haven't read the book yet so I could be dead wrong XP).
    I have 4:
    To build a home by The Cinematic Orchestra
    Poison and Wine by The Civil Wars
    Universe and U by KT Tunstall
    Run by Snow Patrol


    To build a home by The Cinematic Orchestra:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjjc59FgUpg&ob=av2e
    There is a house built out of stone
    Wooden floors, walls and window sills...
    Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust...
    This is a place where I don't feel alone
    This is a place where I feel at home...

    Cause, I built a home
    for you
    for me

    Until it disappeared
    from me
    from you

    And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust...

    Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
    There is a tree as old as me
    Branches were sewn by the color of green
    Ground had arose and passed it's knees

    By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
    I climbed the tree to see the world
    When the gusts came around to blow me down
    I held on as tightly as you held onto me
    I held on as tightly as you held onto me...

    Cause, I built a home
    for you
    for me

    Until it disappeared
    from me
    from you

    And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust...

    Poison and Wine by The Civil Wars
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-6EwdDiopQ

    You only know what I want you to
    I know everything you don't want me to
    Oh your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
    Oh you think your dreams are the same as mine
    Oh I don't love you but I always will
    Oh I don't love you but I always will
    Oh I don't love you but I always will
    I always will

    I wish you'd hold me when I turn my back
    The less I give the more I get back
    Oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
    I don't have a choice but I still choose you
    Oh I don't love you but I always will
    Oh I don't love you but I always will
    Oh I don't love you but I always will
    Oh I don't love you but I always will
    Oh I don't love you but I always will
    Oh I don't love you but I always will
    Oh I don't love you but I always will
    I always will
    I always will
    I always will
    I always will
    I always will

    1. and here's the rest of the songs:

      Universe and U by KT Tunstall
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NoIqjjEvis
      A fire burns
      Water comes
      You cool me down
      When I'm cold inside
      You are warm and bright
      You know you are so good for me
      With your child's eyes
      You are more than you seem
      You see into space
      I see in your face
      The places you've been
      The things you have learned
      They sit with you so beautifully

      You know there's no need to hide away
      You know I tell the truth
      We are just the same
      I can feel everything you do
      Hear everything you say
      Even when you're miles away
      Cause I am me, the universe and you

      Run by Snow Patrol
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOBs8dU4Pb8&ob=av2e
      Just like stars burning bright
      Making holes in the night
      We are building bridges

      I'll sing it one last time for you
      Then we really have to go
      You've been the only thing that's right
      In all I've done

      And I can barely look at you
      But every single time I do
      I know we'll make it anywhere
      Away from here

      Light up, light up
      As if you have a choice
      Even if you cannot hear my voice
      I'll be right beside you, dear

      Louder, louder
      And we'll run for our lives
      I can hardly speak, I understand
      Why you can't raise your voice to say

      To think I might not see those eyes
      Makes it so hard not to cry
      And as we say our long goodbyes
      I nearly do

      Light up, light up
      As if you have a choice
      Even if you cannot hear my voice
      I'll be right beside you, dear

      Louder, louder
      And we'll run for our lives
      I can hardly speak, I understand
      Why you can't raise your voice to say

      Slower, slower
      We don't have time for that
      All I want is to find an easier way
      To get out of our little heads

      Have heart, my dear
      We're bound to be afraid
      Even if it's just for a few days
      Making up for all this mess

      Light up, light up
      As if you have a choice
      Even if you cannot hear my voice
      I'll be right beside you, dear

    Song: "Every Road" by The Maine

    Lyrics:
    Oh it’s safe to say I knew it, yeah I knew it all along
    Asking the same questions, singing the same songs
    I’ve been gone for a while, been traveling along
    Searching for a new life when I already had my own
    So walk back home on every road
    On every road we cross alone
    We’re thinking of those we left back home
    So follow the line and I’ll be your guide
    Cause we’re the lucky ones
    On every road
    Yeah it’s safe to say I knew that all the selfish things I’d do
    Would eventually come creeping back around
    Oh way back when you called me young, said we’re innocent and dumb
    I knew that you’d come creeping back around again
    So walk back home on every road
    On every road we cross alone
    We’re thinking of those we left back home
    So follow the line and I’ll be your guide
    Cause we’re the lucky ones
    On every road
    Huh
    So walk back home on every road
    On every road we cross alone
    We’re thinking of those we left back home
    So follow the line and I’ll be your guide
    Cause we’re the lucky ones
    Yeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeah
    So walk back home on every road
    On every road we cross alone
    We’re thinking of those we left back home
    So follow the line and I’ll be your guide
    Cause we’re the lucky ones (So lucky baby)
    So walk back home on every road
    On every road we cross alone
    We’re thinking of those we left back home
    So follow the line and I’ll be your guide
    Cause we’re the lucky ones
    On every road

    Poison - Alice Cooper

    Your cruel device
    your blood, like ice
    One look, could kill
    My pain, your thrill

    I want to love you but I better not touch (don?t touch)
    I want to hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
    I want to kiss you but I want it too much (too much)
    I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison
    You're poison, running through my veins
    Poison
    I don't want to break these chains

    Your mouth, so hot
    Your web, I'm caught
    Your skin, so wet
    Black lace, on sweat

    I hear you calling and it's needles and pins (and pins)
    I want to hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
    Don't want to touch you but you're under my skin (deep in)
    I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison
    You're poison, running through my veins
    Poison
    I don't want to break these chains
    Poison...

    (guitar solo)

    One look, could kill
    My pain, your thrill

    I want to love you but I better not touch (don?t touch)
    I want to hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
    I want to kiss you but I want it too much (to much)
    I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison
    You're poison, running through my veins
    Poison
    I don't want to break these chains
    Poison (Poi-son)

    I want to love you but I better not touch (don?t touch)
    I want to hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
    I want to kiss you but I want it too much (too much)
    I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison
    Yeah
    Well I don't want to break these chains
    Poison
    Runnin' deep inside my veins
    Burnin' deep inside my brain
    Poison
    And I don't want to break these chains
    Poison

  24. Hello! I'm an International follower. :) I think this song describes their relationship pretty well! hiddendesirex@gmail.com
    Safe & Sound by Taylor Swift ft. Civil Wars

    I remember tears streaming down your face
    When I said, "I'll never let you go"
    When all those shadows almost killed your light
    I remember you said, "Don't leave me here alone"
    But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight

    Just close your eyes
    The sun is going down
    You'll be alright
    No one can hurt you now
    Come morning light
    You and I'll be safe and sound

    Don't you dare look out your window darling
    Everything's on fire
    The war outside our door keeps raging on
    Hold on to this lullaby
    Even when the music's gone
    Gone

    Just close your eyes
    The sun is going down
    You'll be alright
    No one can hurt you now
    Come morning light
    You and I'll be safe and sound

    Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh
    Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh
    La La (La La)
    La La (La La)
    Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh
    Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh
    La La (La La)

    Just close your eyes
    You'll be alright
    Come morning light,
    You and I'll be safe and sound...

    Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh oh oh. [x7]

  25. I haven't read THE IMMORTAL RULES yet, so I don't know the kind of relationship between Kanin and Allison. I'll Stand By You by The Pretenders is one of my favorite songs I believe is a right song about friendship and another one is Count On Me by Whitney Houston. I don't know if they fit well between Kanin and Allison but they are great songs.
