Hi Everyone,

What about: Almost Paradise?   It is by Mike Reno and Anne Wilson.

 

 "Almost Paradise"

 

I thought that dreams belonged to other men
'Cause each time I got close
They'd fall apart again

I feared my heart would beat in secrecy
I faced the nights alone
Oh, how could I have known
That all my life I only needed you

Ooh, almost paradise
We're knockin' on heaven's door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more
I swear that I can see forever in your eyes
Paradise

It seems like perfect love's so hard to find
I'd almost given up
You must have read my mind

And all these dreams I've saved for a rainy day
They're finally comin' true
I'll share them all with you
'Cause now we hold the future in our hands

Ooh, almost paradise
We're knockin' on heaven's door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more
I swear that I can see forever in your eyes
Paradise

And in your arms salvation's not so far away
It's getting closer
Closer every day

Almost paradise
We're knockin' on heaven's door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more
I swear that I can see forever in your eyes
Paradise
Paradise
Paradise

Hi Everyone,

 

I also thought about "Waiting for a Girl Like You"  by Foreigner.

 

 

 

"Waiting For A Girl Like You"

 

So long
I've been looking too hard, I've waiting too long
Sometimes I don't know what I will find
I only know it's a matter of time
When you love someone
When you love someone

It feels so right, so warm and true
I need to know if you feel it too

Maybe I'm wrong
Won't you tell me if I'm coming on too strong?
This heart of mine has been hurt before
This time I wanna be sure

I've been waiting for a girl like you
To come into my life
I've been waiting for a girl like you
A love that will survive
I've been waiting for someone new
To make me feel alive
Yeah, waiting for a girl like you
To come into my life

You're so good
When we make love it's understood
It's more than a touch or a word we say
Only in dreams could it be this way
When you love someone
Yeah, really love someone

Now, I know it's right
From the moment I wake up till deep in the night
There's no where on earth that I'd rather be
Than holding you, tenderly

I've been waiting for a girl like you
To come into my life
I've been waiting for a girl like you
And a love that will survive
I've been waiting for someone new
To make me feel alive
Yeah, waiting for a girl like you
To come into my life

I've been waiting, waiting for you, ooh
Ooh, I've been waiting
I've been waiting, yeah
I've been waiting for a girl like you
I've been waiting
Won't you come into my life?
My life?

"Stay" By Rihanna

(feat. Mikky Ekko)

All along it was a fever

A cold sweat hot-headed believer

I threw my hands in the air, said, "Show me something,"

He said, "If you dare come a little closer."

Round and around and around and around we go

Oh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it.

Something in the way you move

Makes me feel like I can't live without you.

It takes me all the way.

I want you to stay

It's not much of a life you're living

It's not just something you take – it's given

Round and around and around and around we go

Oh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it.

Something in the way you move

Makes me feel like I can't live without you.

It takes me all the way.

I want you to stay.

Ooh the reason I hold on

Ooh cause I need this hole gone

Funny you're the broken one but I'm the only one who needed saving

Cause when you never see the light it's hard to know which one of us is caving

Not really sure how to feel about it.

Something in the way you move

Makes me feel like I can't live without you.

It takes me all the way.

I want you to stay, stay.

I want you to stay, oh.

This is the song I think of when Eva is in her depression at the end of Reflected its by Pink

"I Don't Believe You"

I don't mind it

I don't mind at all

It's like you're the swing set and I'm the kid that falls

It's like the way we fight, the times I've cried, we come to blows

And every night the passion's there so it's gotta be right, right?

[Chorus:]

No I don't believe you

When you say don't come around here no more

I won't remind you

You said we wouldn't be apart

No, I don't believe you

When you say you don't need me anymore

So don't pretend

To not love me at all

I don't mind it

I still don't mind at all

It's like one of those bad dreams when you can't wake up

Looks like you've given up, you've had enough

But I want more no I won't stop

'cause I just know you'll come around... right?

[Chorus]

Just don't stand there and watch me fall

'cause I, 'cause I still don't mind at all

It's like the way we fight, the times I cry, we come to blows

And every night the passion's there so it's gotta be right, right?

[Chorus]

I don't believe you

What about this?

Bruno Mars. Treasure

Give me your, give me your, give me your attention baby

I got to tell you a little something about yourself

You're wonderful, flawless, ooh you're a sexy lady

But you walk around here like you wanna be someone else

I know that you don't know it, but you're fine, so fine

Oh girl I'm gonna show you when you're mine, oh mine

Treasure, that is what you are

Honey you're my golden star

And if you could make my wish come true

If you let me treasure you

If you let me treasure you

Pretty girl, pretty girl, pretty girl you should be smiling

A girl like you should never look so blue

You're everything I see in my dreams

I wouldn't say that to you if it wasn't true

I know that you don't know it, but you're fine, so fine

Oh girl I'm gonna show you when you're mine, oh mine

Treasure, that is what you are

Honey you're my golden star

You know you can make my wish come true

If you let me treasure you

If you let me treasure you

You are my treasure, you are my treasure

You are my treasure, yeah, you you you, you are

You are my treasure, you are my treasure

You are my treasure, yeah, you you you, you are

Treasure, that is what you are

Honey you're my golden star

You know you can make my wish come true

If you let me treasure you

If you let me treasure you

Hi Donnad, 

That was one of the songs played in the movie "Footloose" and I mean the 1984 version.  Am I dating myself too?  Either way, I think it is a beautiful song. The lyrics seem to really suit how Gideon feels about Eva.  Do you know what I mean?

The Reason by Hoobastank

 

 

"I'm not a perfect person

There's many things I wish I didn't do

But I continue learning

I've never meant to do those things to you...

 

I've found out a reason to me

To change who I used to be

A reason to start over new

And that reason is you....

I'm sorry that I hurt you

It's something I must live with every day

And all the pain I put you through

I wish I could take it all away....

I've found a reason to show

A side of me you didn't know

A reason for all that I do

And the reason is you......"

I have always liked this song!

Ladies I found the perfect song for Corinne!

 

Sooner or Later by NERD

 

Sooner or later it all comes crashing down (crashing down)
Crashing down (crashing down) when everyone's around
I bet you would've paid up or you'll cash down (you'll cash down) 
And not make a sound (to make a sound)
Everyone knows now

(So you're sad) 
About the moment you lost your love () 
You couldn't see her leaving 
(You were gassed) 
And that's sucks don't it 
'Cause God yanked the rug 
And holding your heart will not help you breathe

Sooner or later it all comes crashing down (crashing down)
Crashing down (crashing down) when everyone's around
I bet you would've paid up or you'll cash down (you'll cash down) 
And not make a sound (to make a sound)
Everyone knows now

It all comes crashing down
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in

(So you're sad) 
And you should own it and you f***** up ()
You thought that you were the team 
(You were gassed)
And now your opponent, he wears your gloves () 
A nightmare just ate up your dreams 

Sooner or later it all comes crashing down (crashing down)
Crashing down (crashing down) when everyone's around
I bet you would've paid up or you'll cash down (you'll cash down) 
And not make a sound (to make a sound)
Everyone knows now

It all comes crashing down
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in

(So you're sad)
Could have had so much done You blew it off () 
Your chance is passing you by
(You were gassed) 
Time waits for no one
And it cost for a lost
A cosmic joke 
Should you laugh or cry

Sooner or later it all comes crashing down (crashing down)
Crashing down (crashing down) when everyone's around
I bet you would've paid up or you'll cash down (you'll cash down) 
And not make a sound (to make a sound)
Everyone knows now

It all comes crashing down
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in
It's over, breathe in

I like that Claudine!

I heard this one on an oldies station today and immediately thought of Gideon.

It's "I Believe In Miracles" by Hot Chocolate

 

I believe in miracles

Where you from

you sexy thing, you

sexy thang you

I believe in miracles

since you came along,

you sexy thing (chorus)

 

Where did you come from, baby

How did you know I needed you

How did you know I needed you so badly

How did you know I'd give my heart gladly

Yesterday I was one of the lonely people

Now you're lying close to me,

making love to me

I believe in miracles

Where you from

you sexy thing

sexy thing you

I believe in miracles

Since you came along,

you sexy thing

 

Where did you come from,Angel

How did you know I'd be the one

Did you know you're everything I prayed for?

Did you know every night and day for

Everyday you'd give me love satisfaction

Now you're lying next to me, giving it to me

 

(chorus)

 

Kiss me, you sexy thing

Touch me baby, you sexy thing

I love the way you touch me, my darling

You sexy thing

It's ecstasy

 

Yesterday I was one of the lonely people

Now you're lying close to me, giving it to me

 

(chorus)

 

Touch me, kiss me darling

I love the way you love me baby

It's ecstasy, it's ecstasy

sexy thing

I love the way you kiss me darling

Love the way you hold me

Keep on loving me darling

Keep on loving me baby

Hi everyone,

I was thinking about the angst that both Gideon and Eva had feel about each other and their insecurities and this song came to mind:

 

"How Do I Live"

 

How do I,
Get through one night without you?
If I had to live without you,
What kind of life would that be?
Oh, I...
I need you in my arms, need you to hold,
You're my world, my heart, my soul,
If you ever leave,
Baby you would take away everything good in my life,
And tell me now
How do I live without you?
I want to know,
How do I breathe without you?
If you ever go,
How do I ever, ever survive?
How do I, how do I, oh how do I live?
Without you,
There'd be no sun in my sky,
There would be no love in my life,
There'd be no world left for me.
And I,
Baby I don't know what I would do,
I'd be lost if I lost you,
If you ever leave,
Baby you would take away everything real in my life,
And tell me now,
How do I live without you?
I want to know,
How do I breathe without you?
If you ever go,
How do I ever, ever survive?
How do I, how do I, oh how do I live?
Please tell me baby,
How do I go on?
If you ever leave,
Baby you would take away everything,
I need you with me,
Baby don't you know that you're everything,
Good in my life?
And tell me now,
How do I live without you,
I want to know,
How do I breathe without you?
If you ever go,
How do I ever, ever survive?
How do I, how do I, oh how do I live?
How do I live without you?
How do I live without you baby?

Hi Everyone,

I was thinking about the song by Foreigner:  “Feels Like The First Time†and I thought that it might suit Gideon and Eva. 

 

"Feels Like The First Time"

I would climb any mountain
Sail across a stormy sea
If that's what it takes me baby
To show you how much you mean to me
And I guess it's just the woman in you
That brings out the man in me
I know I can't help myself
You're all in the world to me

It feels like the first time
Feels like the very first time
It Feels like the first time
It Feels like the very first time

I have waited a lifetime
Spent my time so foolishly
But now that I've found you
Together we'll make history

And I know that it must be the woman in you
That brings out the man in me
I know I can't help myself
You're all that my eyes can see

And it feels like the first time
Like it never did before
Feels like the first time
Like we've opened up the door
Feels like the first time
Like it never will again, never again

Feels like the first time, it feels like the first time
It feels like the very first time, very, very, it feels
It feels like the first time, oh it feels like the first time
It feels like the very first time

Open up the door, won't you open up the door? Yeah

Feels like the first time
And it feels like the very first time
And it feels like the first time
It feels like the very first time

And it feels like the first time
It feels like the very first time
Oh it feels, it feels like the first time
Yeah it feels like the first time

Hi Donnad,

We are definitely dating ourselves.

Does anyone know the song Eva and Gideon were dancing to when she went to his apartment for dinner for the first time??

Hi Maria5197,

Welcome to the forum and I hope you enjoy yourself.  :)

 

In response to your question, I don't think that it was ever mentioned in any of the books.
