I am a total sucker for a good love song and I searched through every love song I could think of, trying to find just the perfect songs for the scenes in my books.  You might notice that a lot of them are from the 80s, because I am a total 80s music freak.

 

Unfortunately I couldn't use all of these great songs or the story would have ended up being one huge song-fic.  Some of the songs I didn't use in the books were perfect for other scenes though.

 

Below is a list of songs and the scenes I would have put them in if they were episodes on TV.

Take a Chance on Me
by ABBA


This song would play in book 8 in the episode equivalent End of the World when Max asks Liz to the Gomez concert

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
(That's all I ask of you honey)
Take a chance on me

We can go dancing, we can go walking, as long as we're together
Listen to some music, maybe just talking, get to know you better
'Cos you know I've got
So much that I wanna do, when I dream I'm alone with you
It's magic
You want me to leave it there, afraid of a love affair
But I think you know
That I can't let go

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
(Come on, give me a break will you?)
Take a chance on me
Oh you can take your time baby, I'm in no hurry, know I'm gonna get you
You don't wanna hurt me, baby don't worry, I ain't gonna let you
Let me tell you now
My love is strong enough to last when things are rough
It's magic
You say that I waste my time but I can't get you off my mind
No I can't let go
'Cos I love you so

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa ba - ba
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me

Angel
by Sarah McLachlan


This song would play in Book 8 in the episode equivalent End of the World when Liz is remembering Max's earlier visit

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
Thereís always one reason
To feel not good enough
And itís hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
And weightless and maybe
Iíll find some peace tonight

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
Youíre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
Thereís vultures and thieves at your back
And the storm keeps on twisting
You keep on building the lie
That you make up for all that you lack
It donít make no difference
Escaping one last time
Itís easier to believe in this sweet madness oh
This glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
Youíre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there
Youíre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

From This Moment
by Shania Twain


This song would play in Book 8 when Max and Liz discover their connection

I just swear
That I'll always be there
I'd give anything and everything
And I'll always care
Through weakness and strength
Happiness and sorrow
For better - for worse
I will love you
With every beat of my heart

From this moment
Life has begun
From this moment
You are the one
Right beside you is where I belong
From this moment on

From this moment
I have been blessed
I live only
For your happiness
And for your love
I'd give my last breath
From this moment on

I'd give my hand to you with all my heart
Can't wait to live my life with you can't wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams
Came true
Because of you

From this moment
As long as I live
I will love you
I promise you this
There is nothing
I wouldn't give
From this moment on

You're the reason I believe in love
And you're the answer to my prayers from up above
All we need is just the two of us
My dreams
Came true
Because of you

From this moment
As long as I live
I will love you
I promise you this
There is nothing
I wouldn't give
From this moment ...

I will love you (I will love you)
As long as I live
From this moment on

The Answer
by Sarah McLachlan


This song would play in Book 8 when Max and Liz are talking in the eraser room

I will be the answer
At the end of the line
I will be there for you
While you take the time
In the burning of uncertainty
I will be your solid ground
I will hold the balance
If you can't look down

If it takes my whole life
I won't break, I won't bend
It will all be worth it
Worth it in the end
Cause I can only tell you what I know
That I need you in my life
When the stars have all gone out
You'll still be burning so bright

Cast me gently
Into morning
For the night has been unkind
Take me to a
Place so holy
That I can wash this from my mind
The memory of choosing not to fight

If it takes my whole life
I won't break, I won't bend
It will all be worth it
Worth it in the end
'Cause I can only tell you what I know
That I need you in my life
When the stars have all burned out
You'll still be burning so bright

Cast me gently
Into morning
For the night has been unkind

I Alone
by Live


This song would play in Book 8 when Max and Liz are dancing at the Prom

it's easier not to be wise
and measure these things by your brains
I sank into eden with you
alone in the church by and by

I'll read to you here save your eyes
you'll need them your boat is at sea
your anchor is up you've been swept away
and the greatest of teachers won't hesitate
to leave you there by yourself
chained to fate

I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
fear is not the end of this!

it's easier not to be great
and measure these things by your eyes
we long to be here by his resolve
alone in the church by and by

to cradle the baby in space
and leave you there by yourself
chained to fate

oh, now, we took it back too far,
only love can save us now
all these riddles that you burn
all come runnin' back to you
all these rhythms that you hide
only love can save us now
all these riddles that you burn

yeah, yeah, yeah
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
fear is not the end of this!

Baby, I Love Your Way
by Peter Frampton


This song would play in Book 8 when Max gives Liz the necklace

Shadows grow so long before my eyes
And they're moving across the page
Suddenly the day turns into night
Far away from the city
Well, don't hesitate, cause your love won't wait...

Ooo, baby, I love your way, everyday
Gonna tell you I love your way, everyday
Wanna be with you night and day

Moon appears to shine and light the skies
With the help of some firefly
Wonder how they have the power to shine
I can see them under the pine
But don't hesitate, cause your love won't wait...

Ooo, baby, I love your way, everyday
Gonna tell you I love your way, everyday
Wanna be with you night and day

(solo - on verse) but don't hesitate, cause your love won't wait...
I can see the sunset in your eyes
Brown and grey, blue besides
Clouds are stalking islands in the sun
Wish I could buy one out of season
But don't hesitate, cause your love won't wait...

Ooo, baby, I love your way, everyday
Gonna tell you I love your way, everyday
Wanna be with you night and day

Togother Forever
by Rick Astley


This song would play in Book 8 when Max proposes to Liz.

If there's anything you need
All you have to do is say
You know you satisfy everything in me
We shouldn't waste a single day

So don't stop me falling
It's destiny calling
A power I just can't deny
It's never changing
Can't you hear me I'm saying
I want you for the rest of my life

Together forever and never to part
Together forever we two
And donít you know
I would move heaven and earth
To be together forever with you

If they ever get you down
There's always something I can do
Because I wouldn't ever wanna see you frown
I'll always do what's best for you

There ain't no mistaken
It's true love we're making
Something to last for all time
It's never changing
Can't you hear me I'm saying
I want you for the rest of my life

Together forever and never to part
Together forever we two
And donít you know
I would move heaven and earth
To be together forever with you

So don't stop me falling
It's destiny calling
A power I just can't deny
It's never changing
Can't you hear me I'm saying
I want you for the rest of my life

Together forever and never to part
Together forever we two
And donít you know
I would move heaven and earth
To be together forever with you

Together forever and never to part
Together forever we two
And donít you know
I would move heaven and earth
To be together forever with you

Heaven
by Bryan Adams


This song would play in Book 8 when Max and Liz are driving back to Roswell after their wedding in Vegas.

Oh thinking about our younger years
There was only you and me
We were young and wild and free
Now nothing can take you away from me
We been down that road before
But that's over now, you keep me coming back for more

Baby you're all that I want
When you're lying here in my arms
I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in Heaven

And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see
We're in Heaven

Oh once in your life you find someone
Who will turn your world around
Bring you up when you're feeling down
Yeah nothing can change what you mean to me
There's alot that I could say but just hold me now
Cause our love will light the way

And baby you're all that I want
When you're lying here in my arms
I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in Heaven

And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see
We're in Heaven

I've been waiting for so long
For something to arrive
For love to come along

Now our dreams are coming true
Through the good times and the bad
I'll be standing there by you

And baby you're all that I want
When you're lying here in my arms
I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in Heaven

And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see
We're in Heaven

You're all that I want...
You're all that I need...

In Your Eyes
by Peter Gabriel


This song would play in Book 8 when Max and Liz are talking in the kitchen after her bad dream

Love
I get so lost
sometimes.
Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart.
When I want to run away I drive off in my car.
But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are.

All my instincts they return
and the grand facade so soon will burn.
Without a noise
without my pride
I reach out from the inside.

In your eyes - the light the heat
In your eyes - I am complete
In your eyes - I see the doorway
In your eyes - to a thousand churches
In your eyes - the resolution
In your eyes - of all the fruitless searches.
In your eyes - I see the light and the heat
In your eyes - I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes.

Love
I don't like to see so much pain.
So much wasted
and this moment keeps slipping away.
I get so tired of working
so hard for our survival.
I look to the time with you
ta keep me awake and alive.

And all my instincts they return
and the grand facade so soon will burn.
Without a noise
without my pride
I reach out from the inside.

In your eyes
in your eyes
in your eyes
in your eyes

In your eyes - the light the heat
In your eyes - I am complete
In your eyes - I see the doorway
In your eyes - to a thousand churches
In your eyes - the resolution
In your eyes - of all the fruitless searches.
In your eyes - I see the light and the heat
In your eyes - I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes.

Never Tear Us Apart
by INXS


This song would play in Book 8 on the last night that Max and Liz spend together before Max goes back in time

Don't ask me
What you know is true
Don't have to tell you
I love your precious heart

I
I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never tear us apart

We could live
For a thousand years
But if I hurt you
I'd make wine from your tears
I told you
That we could fly
'Cause we all have wings
But some of us don't know why

I
I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never ever tear us apart

Girl
by Chicago


This song would play in Book 8 when Max has come back in time and is in the pod chamber and he just found out that Liz died.

Girl,
well it's been one of those days again
And it seems like the harder I try
Over and over
I'm right back where I began
But you understand

Oh, Girl
when nothing else in this world goes right
Oh, I just want to run to you
You'll pull me through
Who wouldn't want to have you in their life

Tell me what kind of man would I be
Living a life without any meaning
And I know you could surely survive without me
But if I had to live without you
Tell me what kind of man would I be

Times when it was pointless for me to try
I was more than a desperate man
What seemed like forever
was gone with one touch of your hand

Oh girl
If I could count all the sleepless nights
when you were there for me
A fool could see Oh baby,
once I found you there was no letting go

Tell me what kind of man would I be
Living a life without any meaning
And I know you could surely survive without me
But if I had to live without you
Tell me what kind of man would I be

Tell me what kind of man would I be
Living a life without any meaning
And I know you could surely survive without me
But if I had to live without you
Tell me what kind of man would I be

Everything I Do, I Do it for You
by Brian Adams


This song would play in Book 8 in the episode End of the World, when Liz goes to Max's room and tells him she doesn't want to die for him.

Look into my eyes
You will see
What you mean to me

Search your heart
Search your soul
And when you find me there you'll search no more

Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for
You know it's true
Everything I do
I do it for you

Look into your heart
You will find
There's nothin' there to hide

Take me as I am
Take my life
I would give it all
I would sacrifice

Don't tell me it's not worth fightin' for
I can't help it, there's nothin' I want more
You know it's true
Everything I do
I do it for you

There's no love
Like your love
And no other
Could give more love

There's nowhere
Unless you're there
All the time
All the way

Oh you can't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
I can't help it, there's nothin' I want more

I would fight for you
I'd lie for you
Walk the wire for you
I'd die for you

You know it's true
Everything I do
I do it for you

This Woman's Work
by Kate Bush


This song would play in Book 8 in the episode End of the World, when future Max is in the bathroom and Liz is in bed with Kyle.

Pray God you can cope.
I stand outside this woman's work,
This woman's world.
Ooh, it's hard on the man,
Now his part is over.
Now starts the craft of the father.

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking
Of all the things I should've said,
That I never said.
All the things we should've done,
That we never did.
All the things I should've given,
But I didn't.

Oh, darling, make it go,
Make it go away.

Give me these moments back.
Give them back to me.
Give me that little kiss.
Give me your hand.

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking
Of all the things we should've said,
That were never said.
All the things we should've done,
That we never did.
All the things that you needed from me.
All the things that you wanted for me.
All the things that I should've given,
But I didn't.

Oh, darling, make it go away.
Just make it go away now.
