Turn It Up Tuesday: Crazier
Hey! Karlie is in the house!
It’s Turn It Up Tuesday once again, and my song is Crazier by Taylor Swift.
I'd never gone with the wind
Just let it flow
Let it take me where it wants to go
'Til you open the door
There's so much more
I'd never seen it before
I was trying to fly
But I couldn't find wings
But you came along and you changed everything
my novel Forsaken, Anne Brisban is a straitlaced, perfect princess. She doesn’t
take chances, her appearance is always just right, and step out of line? Never. But when
Nolan Cabaret blows into her life, all bad-boy charm and social flippancy, she’s
forced to step back and take a second look.
being around Nolan has shown her what she’s been missing all these years.
suddenly she’s riding bareback behind him, sneaking in late, stealing kisses by
the fountain…and loosening her corset strings. (Literally and figuratively).
You lift my feet off the ground
You spin me around
You make me crazier, crazier
Feels like I'm falling and I am lost in your eyes
You make me crazier, crazier, crazier
I've watched from a distance as you made life your own
Every sky was your own kind of blue
And I wanted to know how that would feel
And you made it so real
You showed me something that I couldn't see
You opened my eyes
And you made me believe
Perfection isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. A little crazy
is actually kind of nice.
And then Fate
stepped in…but we’re not getting into that today. ;)
Anyway, Anne Brisban
learned spontaneity, and Nolan Cabaret learned some measure of responsibility.
So they were good for each other, right? Well, not exactly. But there I go
getting off topic again.
