Sanctuary tunes!

While writing Sanctuaire, I listened to a few songs you might be interested in. Links go to youtube movies.

I felt I could write this the best with two albums from Lindsey Stirling on repeat. Here are a few songs:

Shatter me (ft. Lzzy Hale of Halestorm)
Song of the Caged Bird
Crystallize

I actually uhm… started to list every song… so here’s the link to her youtube channel instead. Enjoy.

Ik leef niet meer voor jou by Marco Borsato
Yes, I know it’s a foreign song; it’s Dutch, actually.
Some of the lyrics that I feel echoes with Bella’s sentiments for Edward as she regains her confidence and becomes empowered again:

I’m not living for you any longer
You no longer have to try
And stay here
and to dominate me
I’ve had to endure too much 
I’ve had enough of your antics
It’s time to send you away.

I’m not living for you any longer
The nights where I stayed up and wait for you
are gone
You’ve lied to me without feeling sorry
You’ve conned me and deceived me
So dry your eyes
I’m not living for you any longer.

Hit and Run by LoLo (aka Lauren Pritchard)
This is a song about someone who takes revenge for her best friend/sister who got murdered and beaten up. A song about empowerment.

Beautiful with you by Halestorm
I suppose this song counts for both for Kol and for Bella.

I am beautiful with you
Even in the darkest part of me
I am beautiful with you
Make it feel the way it’s supposed to be
You’re here with me
Just show me this and I’ll believe
I am beautiful with you

You get me by Michelle Branch
Yep, for both.

So I’m a little left of center
I’m a little out of tune
Some say I’m paranormal
So I just bend their spoon

Hey, you are on my side
And they, they just roll their eyes

You get me
When nobody understands
You come and take the chance, baby
You get me
You look inside my wild mind
Never knowing what you’ll find
And still you want me all the time
Yeah, you do
Yeah, you get me

 Shake away by Michael Patrick Kelly

I made it out west through the desert and the snow
How you found me I reckon someday I’ll know
You picked me up from the depth I couldn’t cope
And you showed me a life of love, trust, and hope

Shake away, shake away the old chains in my life
Got a new, got a new love in open eyes
Break away, break away the old ways ended high
Got a new course for the light
