"Colorblind", by Counting Crows. The soundtrack to yesterday's bit about Sara. As I said to mizarchivist via e-mail: "That song just grabbed me by the metaphoric lapels when I first heard it. The last words of Sara's previous story - previous life, she'd say - were "I'm ready." And the mood of it is just very her."
She actually had not just one, but two lives before her life in Shayara. She just doesn't want to think about the first. That one, she wanted to leave. The second one... not so much. She had to leave people she loved. Because she has something in Shayara that she needs to do, that only she can do.
And saying any more would spoil things, really.
I've yet to write up your musical guide to me. But this song would be the start of your musical guide to Sara. Most of my characters have their own playlists...
