This Song Will Save Your Life ~ Leila Sales

I judged this book by its cover and I should say I enjoyed reading it.

This is a story of a girl named Elsie who thinks she is born to be unpopular since she has tried everything to be otherwise but concludes to say that it is not so easy to change yourself.

She spends her entire summer trying to change herself, to be like others, to please others, only to go unnoticed on her first day back to school.

Her failed attempt to seek attention only got her grounded and her parents to get worried even more. Unable to sleep, she secretly started wandering out at nights. Her idea was to get tired so she could fall asleep once she was back home.

Elsie found an underground nightclub where she found happiness. She met people who gave her the attention and importance she wanted. Her talents were recognized and she was even offered a night to herself to become a DJ.

The journey of Elsie from being a no one to her name appearing in the newspaper is very engaging.

I had imagined this book to be filled with songs in every other page or something on those lines but it turned out to be much better. There are mentions of some songs, all of which are unheard by me but I would definitely give them a listen soon.

It is just a matter of time till you recognize what you are capable of.

Songs I heard, I liked and ‘I’ Downloaded – 1

I am not boasting around by putting up such a post, just that I have always and still struggle to find and download songs. I usually keep asking people for suggestions and prefer them to me emailed them to me. It is just an easy way out.

Few days back since I had some spare time, I plugged in to the radio, heard a few songs. liked some of them and then downloaded them. Yes, I downloaded and for some reason I feel proud that I did it. Feels like an achievement. 

One of the song was:

Don’t Wake Me Up by Chris Brown

(For some weird reason, which is not explainable, I prefer reading the lyrics of the song while listening to it for the first few times, so below are the same)

[Spoken:]
Dearly beloved, if this love only exists in my dreams…don’t wake me up. 

[Verse 1:]
Too much light in this window, don’t wake me up
Only coffee no sugar, inside my cup
If I wake and you’re here still, give me a kiss
I wasn’t finished dreaming, about your lips

[Chorus:]
Don’t wake me up, up, up, up up, up [x3]
Don’t wake me up
Don’t wake me..

Don’t wake me up [x3]
Don’t wake me up, up, up, up, up, up
Don’t wake me up
Don’t wake me..

[Verse 2:]
So much life in the city, you won’t believe
Been awake for some days now, no time to sleep
If your heart is a pillow, this love’s the bed
Tell me what is the music, inside my head

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
I don’t wanna fall, fall, fall, fall asleep no,
I don’t wanna fall unless I’m falling for you
[x2]

[Chorus]
