Soundtrack Saturday – Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen
Feel free to join in! Either leave your soundtrack pick or the link to your soundtrack post in the comments.
From the author’s website:
Claire has everything she thinks she needs, until one day she wakes to find a stranger has moved in next door and a vine of ivy has crept into her garden… and her carefully tended life is about to run gloriously out of control.
Soundtrack Song: “Love And Some Verses” by Iron and Wine, from the album Our Endless Numbered Days
I love this simple, sweet song for Claire and her next door neighbour, Tyler the artist. Claire is set in her ways – she has her house and her garden and doesn’t want anyone or anything to disrupt her simple routine. Tyler’s waiting her out, waiting through her mixed signals, waiting for her to let him in. I especially like how the second verse of the song fits their relationship:
Love and some verses you hear
say what you can’t say
Love to say this in your ear,
“I’ll love you that way”
From your changing contentments,
what will you choose for to share?
Someday drawing you different,
may I be weaved in your hair?
What song would you add to the soundtrack for this book or the one you’re currently reading?
