Bareboned and Crazy…For You

So I’m writing the tail end of Dirty/Bad/wrong – my part of Taking Care of Business and Dix and Kate are on the precipiece here – he wants her for more than just a woman to have sex with. She’s unsure for a host of reasons but she’s got a major thing for him because he gets to her in a way no one does – in a way she’s never allowed anyone to.

So as it happens, I have this very sex laden soundtrack for this book but one song that I keep returning to is The Dave Matthews Band’s Crash…

He says to her: “Bullshit, Kate. You know what to want. You want what you want.” He shrugged. “That’s not the complicated part. Wanting is easy.”

wanting is easy, needing is hard, loving is hard – love isn’t enough and she knows it.

There’s something about the song that gets at the rawness of desire tinged with love, with adoration. Because it means something more to desire someone you love.

    I *love* that song – most people think it’s horrible, but I can listen to in on repeat for hours.

    I loved the album CRASH, and strangely enough, I used the song SO MUCH TO SAY in the soundtrack for the last Berkley I wrote too. (I also put some of the lyrics in the front of the book, not sure if I get to keep them there though. LOL

    He’s always got such awesome lyrics. They hit home.
