Lady Midnight and Music 2

PART 2 IS HEREEEEE! Find Part 1 here if you haven’t read it yet.

Now that I’ve finished Lady Midnight, and my emotions have calmed down a bit, I can think straight.

*MAJOR SPOILERS BELOW*

Only read this if you have cried over Lady Midnight’s end. Only read this if you are waiting for the next book. Do not read this post if you haven’t and you are still enjoying a happy life, because I promise you, once you have read it, you will fall into despair. So yeah…if you haven’t read it, GO READ IT. Because I’m a sadist and I wanna drag you down into the pits of tears with me. “Review” coming up. I say “review” because it will mostly be rants and emotional nonsense. Yeeeeah, I’ve not calmed down yet. I lied.

*LAST WARNING: SPOILERS THAT WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE*

After finishing Lady Midnight, this song, both part 1 and part 2 have become even more emotional. I can’t listen to it without thinking of Emma and Julian ;-;

Oh yeah, this post will be very similar to part 1 of it, but now that I’ve finished the book, I see it in a new(ish) light.

 


 


Little Mix – Secret Love Song, Pt. II

We keep behind closed doors
Every time I see you, I die a little more
Stolen moments that we steal as the curtain falls
It’ll never be enough
As you drive me to my house
I can’t stop these silent tears from rolling down
You and I both have to hide on the outside
Where I can’t be yours and you can’t be mine
But I know this, we got a love that is homelessWhy can’t I hold you in the street?
Why can’t I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t it be like that? ‘Cause I’m yours
Why can’t I say that I’m in love?
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t it be like that? ‘Cause I’m yoursIt’s obvious you’re meant for me
Every piece of you, it just fits perfectly
Every second, every thought, I’m in so deep
But I’ll never show it on my faceBut we know this, we got a love that is hopelessWhy can’t you hold me in the street?
Why can’t I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t we be like that? ‘Cause I’m yours
Why can’t I say that I’m in love?
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t we be like that? ‘Cause I’m yoursI don’t wanna live love this way
I don’t wanna hide us away
I wonder if it ever will change
I’m living for that day, someday
When you hold me in the street
And you kiss me on the dance floor
I wish that we could be like that
Why can’t we be like that? ‘Cause I’m yours, I’m yoursWhy can’t you hold me in the street?
Why can’t I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t it be like that? ‘Cause I’m yours
Why can’t I say that I’m in love?
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t we be like that? ‘Cause I’m yoursWhy can’t we be like that?
Wish we could be like that


We keep behind closed doorsStolen moments that we steal as the curtain falls

What essentially happened near the end of the book before Emma spoke to Jem. That studio scene…That kiss outside the Institute before Gwyn showed up. I NEED MORE JEMMA.

Every time I see you, I die a little more

No words needed. Looking at each other is a reminder of what they can’t have. *Sniffs*

Why can’t I hold you in the street?
Why can’t I kiss you on the dance floor?

THEY NEARLY KISSED. THEY WOULD HAVE KISSED. REMEMBER THAT DANCE IN THE MIDNIGHT THEATRE? Before Part 1 to this post, I hadn’t read that dance scene yet but NOW I HAVE.

Why can’t I say that I’m in love?
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that

Is it just my imagination but I remember Emma thinking about love and how when you’re in love, you want people to know?

It’s obvious you’re meant for me
Every piece of you, it just fits perfectly

Emma and Julian would be so perfect together ~_~ But they can’t. WHY DID THEY HAVE TO BE PARABATAI? They make a great team, and together they were essentially the parents of Tavvy, Ty, Livvy and Dru.

I don’t wanna live love this way
I don’t wanna hide us away
I wonder if it ever will change

They don’t wanna hide. But now that Emma knows about the damn curse, she’s trying to stop Julian’s feelings for her because she knows that she can’t stop her own. Will it ever change? Is there some way to undo this whole parabatai thing? Or is there a loop-hole? PLEASE CASSANDRA YOU GENIUS. YOU MUST THINK OF SOME WAY.

Why can’t we be like that?
Wish we could be like that

They can keep wishing and dreaming, but at the moment, it’s hopeless. Most tragic love story ever.


*Digs a hole* Now go away while I cry buckets over them. *Curls up in the hole and silently cries*

Check out my review of the book, link below! More of a screaming post really.
