    This song is for Jonny Creed on The Mighty Storm, on the concert scene I had to stop for a moment because it touched me. I think this is the perfect song to describe how Jack and the others must have felt.

  8. LOVE THIS YANI!!!!!!!!!!! So darn perfect – thank you – yes, that was a very poignant moment in the book! Loved it! Jen 😉

  9. This song in on the TMS playlist but is also my song for Thoughtless…..I remember listening to this after I read the end and I was gripping my chest…the emotion of this version of the song is really captured for me in that book. Enjoy. It still makes me choke up and think of Kellan and Kiera. Jen xxxx
