TGIF – 2

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads! Each Friday, she asks a question for anyone to answer. This Friday’s Question is:

Musical Stories: If you could read a book about any song, which song would you love to see written down in story form?

There are many songs that are stories in themselves but there is one I always thought would be a great Fantasy story:

Night of the Hunter by Thirty Seconds to Mars

(Fair warning: this in not a happy song about butterflies and flowers. Don’t say I didn’t warn you)

I was born of the womb of a poisonous spell
Beaten and broken and chased from the lair
But I rise up above it, high up above it and see
I was hung from the tree made of tongues of the weak
The branches were bones of liars and thieves
Rise up above it, high up above it and see

Pray to your god, open your heart
Whatever you do, Don’t be afraid of the dark
Cover your eyes, the devil’s inside

One night of the hunter
One day I will get revenge
One night to remember
One day it’ll all just end,

Blessed by a bitch from a bastard’s seed
Pleasure to meet you but better to bleed
Rise, I’ll rise, I’ll rise, I’ll rise!
Skinned her alive, ripped her apart
Scattered her ashes, buried her heart
Rise up above it, high up above it and see

Pray to your god, open your heart
Whatever you do, Don’t be afraid of the dark
Cover your eyes, the devil’s inside

One night of the hunter
One day I will get revenge
One night to remember
One day it’ll all just end,

Honest to God I’ll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart
Honest to God I’ll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart
Honest to God I’ll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart
Honest to God I’ll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart

One night of the hunter
One day I will get revenge
One night to remember
One day it’ll all just end.

What song did you choose?

  1. I love it! Another 30 Seconds to Mars fan in less than 4 blogs I have visited 🙂
    Very cool!
    I see this attached to a dystopian story. I know the song is supposed to be the story, but I am also thinking about the story that could be written using the song as the only influence too.

    My TGIF

    Thanks for stopping by Francine! It was actually hard to pick a song, so I’m glad you agree with my choice 🙂 Have a good weekend!
