ANOTHER ONE? So soon? I wasn’t planning on this at all but Leigh Bardugo tweeted something and I was inspired so here it is…

Fever Ray – If I Had A Heart
This will never end
Cause I want more
More, give me more
Give me more

If I had a heart I could love you
If I had a voice I would sing
After the night when I wake up
I’ll see what tomorrow brings

Wild Beasts – Lion’s Share
It’s a terrible scare
But that’s why the dark is there
See you don’t have to see
What you can’t bear, the lion’s share

The Antlers – Parentheses 
I’m a bad amputee
With no phantom memory
So close up your knees
And I’ll close your parentheses

Brick + Mortar – Move to the Ocean (Baauer Mix)
We’ll move to the ocean
To feed off the daylight
Was hoping that you’d understand
I got a darkness darkness
But you don’t gotta hold my hand
Do you got a darkness darkness
Together we could take a stand

I wanted this to sound sinister without remorse, the way I see the Darkling.

    These are so dramatic and dark and awesome! Wonderful design work. I just need to pick Shadow and Bone up from my shelf and read it so I can get the full effect!

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a
    little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
