Writing Soundtrack Playlist

Here are the songs I listen to while I write Left Unsaid & a line or two from the song that stands out.


"Read All About It (Pt. III)" by Emeli Sandé
"You've got the words to change a nation, but you're biting your tongue. You've spent a life time stuck in silence afraid you'll say something wrong."


"When it Was Over" by Sara Groves

"Epiphany" by Staind
"forget all the things I should have said"


"Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol

"You Could Be Happy" by Snow Patrol
"And all the things that I wished I had not said"


"Fair" by Remy Zero
"and all my words were bound to fail"


"Glitter in the Air" by Pink
"the breath before the kiss"


"What Hurts the Most" by Rascal Flatts
"I would trade, give away all the words that I saved in my heard that I left unspoken"


"How to Save a Life" by the Fray
"between the lines of fear and blame"


"Silence" by Jars of Clay
"scatter pieces of all I've been"


"Ever the Same" by Rob Thomas

"Need You Now" by Lady Antebellum
"and I wonder if I ever cross your mind"


"Simon" by Lifehouse
"traded your worth for these scars"


"Everything" by Lifehouse
"how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?"


"Chocolate" by Snow Patrol
"but in truth I'm lost for words"


"In Your Hands" by Bebo Norman

"Jealous Kind" by Jars of Clay
"I'd rather feel the pain all too familiar than to be broken by a lover I don't understand"


"Say" by John Mayer
"Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You'd better know that in the end
It's better to say too much
Then never say what you need to say again
Say what you need to say"



"Say Something" by A Great Big World
"Say something, I'm giving up on you"


"Breathe Again" by Sara Bareilles
"Car is parked, bags are packed, but what kind of heart doesn't look back
At the comfortable glow from the porch, the one I will still call yours?
All those words came undone and now I'm not the only one"



"Clocks" by Coldplay
"Come out of things unsaid"


"Wanted you More" by Lady Antebellum
"All the words unspoken, promises broken
I cried for so long
Wasted too much time, should've seen the signs
Now I know just what went wrong"



"Looks like Love" by NeedToBreathe
"It's time to say
Those words that I have left unsaid."



"Slow" by Audrey Assad
"Because you took me at my word."


"The Sound of Silence" by Simon & Garfunkel
"People talking without speaking."
"But my words like silent raindrops fell."


"Word of God Speak" by MercyMe
"I'm finding myself at a loss for words"
"And the funny thing is it's okay"


"If Tomorrow Never Comes" by Garth Brooks
"'Cause I've lost loved ones in my life who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret that my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself to say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance where there's no second chance to tell her how I feel
