Quote I Love: Numb by Linkin Park

Here’s this week’s quote I love…

Sometimes when I’m writing I listen to music. Occasionally a song will remind me of a character I’m writing about. Then whenever I hear that song, I’m right back into the story, into the character’s head. I find myself listening to it over and over.

I’ve found several songs that really hit home when it came to my book More.

“Numb” by Linkin Park fits Luke in so many ways. Since More is releasing next week, I thought it was the perfect time to post some of the song’s lyrics for my quote of the week. There’s also a video below if you want to listen.

“I’m tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless
Lost under the surface
I don’t know what you’re expecting of me
Put under the pressure
Of walking in your shoes

Every step that I take is another mistake to you

All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you

Can’t you see that you’re smothering me
Holding too tightly
Afraid to lose control
‘Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you

-Numb by Linkin Park

Hope you have a great day! Cheers,
