The PlayList

The following is a list of all the songs you are bound to see in Halcyon House. They double as chapter titles. They are also used for helping me, the writer, figure what goes on plot-wise.

  1. Streets of Gold, by Needtobreathe--the Beginning and the Reveal
  2. Deal With It, by Last Tuesday--the Explanation
  3. Out of Control, by Capital Lights--the Turmoil and the Compromise
  4. Careful, by Paramore--the Departure
  5. Awakening, by Switchfoot--the Meeting (a rough draft of which you can see in the "So It Beings" entry.)
  6. Hanging on by a Thread, by the Letter Black--the Disclosure
  7. Crushcrushcrush, by Paramore--the Discussion and the Advice
  8. Dog Days are Over, by Florence + the Machine--the Deal and the Sister
  9. Abracadavers, by the Classic Crime--the Past and the Condition
  10.  Dearest (I'm so Sorry) by Picture Me Broken--the Talking and the Barriers Coming Down
  11. Caraphernelia by Pierce the Veil--the Catastrophe
  12.  Breathe You In by Thousand Foot Krutch--the Decision
  13. Girl Named Tennessee by Needtobreathe--the First Sight
  14. Take Me As I Am by FM Static--the Making of Friends
  15. A Hard Day's Night, by the Beatles--the Family Arrival
  16. The Outsiders by Needtobreathe--the Construction 
  17. My Brain Says Stop, but My Heart Says Go by FM Static--the Possibilities
  18. The Way I Loved You by Taylor Swift--the Other Boot Dropped
  19. Playing God by Paramore--the Fraying of the Threads
  20. Grave Digging by the Classic Crime--the Unexplained Conversation and What Happens to Eavesdroppers
  21. Death of Me by RED--the Desperation
  22. Won't Turn Back by Needtobreathe--the Past Resurrected
  23. Haunted by Taylor Swift--the Losing It
  24. White Blank Page by Mumford and Sons--the Shattering
  25. What Becomes of the Brokenhearted by Joan Osbourne--the Withdrawal
  26. The Call by Regina Spektor--the Return
  27. Love Song by Taylor Swift--the Declaration and the Lunacy Put At Last into Action
  28. The Only Exception by Paramore--the Return Home
  29. Epilogue: Roll Away Your Stone by Mumford and Sons--the Future and the Changes
As you can see, what comes after in Italics is so I can keep track of the plot. I also use a lot of Paramore, Needtobreathe and Taylor Swift, because that's what I had on my iPod and listened to when I first started writing it to begin with. You can find the vast majority of these songs on my iPod, should you ever see it, and each one of them caused an inspiration of the plot in it's own way. I'll leave it up to you to see if you can figure it out!

Over & Out,
