I heard this song and just… loved it.

It’s such a beautiful thought and wonderful imagery, and Tori Amos has a nice voice, too.

It was hard to find something to use it for because many of my characters lack this close relationship with their father, but then… There was Burditt. Burditt is a great father and father figure.

And there’s how Dillon doesn’t see the good in himself after all that his biological father did to him, so this part can fit for his relationships with just about everyone as well as Burditt and Larina:

“Your must learn to stand up for yourself
Cause I can’t always be around”
He says

When you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna love you as much as I do
When you gonna make up your mind
Cause things are gonna change so fast

The part about things changing so fast fits in well with the story, because Larina’s life is completely flipped around at the beginning, and everything she thought she knew and had is gone, and she has to find a way to live with those changes, same with Dillon.

Plus I think, while several things led up to it happening, the way that Larina and Dillon lost their friendship must have seemed fast and horrible for both of them, leaving them both floundering for a while afterward, and that fits as well.

I had to use the lines about the white horses for this story, though, because they live on a ranch and care for rescue horses. The white ones are special, though, as the little fic shows.

Still, there’s a lot of Larina and Burditt that goes with this song.

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.
