It was kind of interesting today, having a favorite song pop up on Pandora and then realizing that wow, that is so Randolph and Persephone.
I’m not sure if I was thinking back on the lyrics or not, but there’s a part where she flat out asks him, “How fragile do you think I am?”
And the opening verse of the song has this lyric:
You’re saying I’m fragile
I try not to be
But Persephone is also this:
I have my own life
And I am stronger
Than you know
Randolph has a moment when he first sees the Reynolds home, and it’s very much like the verse sung by Don Henley.
You were right
When I walked into your house
I knew I’d never want to leave
Since Randolph comes to the case with lots of baggage from his past, this part fits him very well:
Sometimes I’m a strong man
Sometimes cold and scared
And sometimes I cry
And since it’s a story about them investigating a series of crimes, of course this fits them both:
I search only
I can’t see
Of course, one of my favorite parts of the song is this bit:
Is love so fragile and the heart so hollow, shatter with words impossible to follow?
Kabobbles Sing Along is just what I think when I hear songs. I sometimes see images when I hear lyrics, pictures or movies in my head. Sometimes I relate it to stories. My interpretation of the songs and lyrics are probably nothing like their original intent.
