I had intended to post the playlist for Revived, Demon Within Book 5, a while ago, but it completely slipped my mind. So, here it finally is for those of you who are interested in the music inspirations behind the book.

You Found Me by The Fray really captures the essence of how Cami feels throughout Revived. In Scorned, she felt so lost and alone, like the world was against her and in Revived she realizes that she’s not alone after all, that there are people who truly do care about her and who stand up beside her, even if she didn’t see it before.

Favorite Lyrics:

“Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why’d you have to wait?
Where were you, where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, you found me.”

Sing for Me by Yellowcard is Dylan’s anthem in Revived. He’s tried his best to be the type of Demon Watcher Cami deserves, but Cami is quite the fighter and doesn’t want to be coddled or looked after. Their deep-seated connection really does surpass human relationships, and they’ll always have something special between them that Cami has with no one else.

Favorite Lyrics:

“Every lock, on every door
I put them there to try and hide you from the world
And you kicked, yeah, you screamed
You never understood you’re everything to me.”

Your Guardian Angel and Cat and Mouse by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

Your Guardian Angel is Zach’s anthem to Cami in Revived because his whole purpose in life is to stand by her side and protect and guide her. His love for her is the purest, on a heavenly level, and no matter how much Cami will deny it, she likes having Zach around.

Favorite Lyrics:

“I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven.”

Cat and Mouse is the perfect song to portray Cami and Evan’s relationship through the whole series. They’re constantly unintentionally playing games with each other and having games played with them. They struggle to find balance with each other and their relationship at some points is toxic for the both of them due to demonic circumstances.

Favorite Lyrics:

“We made plans to grow old,
Believe me there was truth in all those stories that I told.
Lost in a simple game cat and mouse are we the same people as before this came to light?

Am I supposed to be happy?
With all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
Am I supposed to be happy?
With all I ever wanted, it comes with a price.
You said, you said that you would die for me…”

Burning Bridges and Something I Need by OneRepublic

Burning Bridges is Evan’s anthem in Revived because he’s so tainted and out of control of his life, but he does love Cami even if he’s under Malicevile’s influence. Cami’s had Evan’s heart from the first time he laid eyes on her, and he is one of the only people who can relate to her and understand what it’s like being born demi-demon.

Favorite Lyrics:

“Look for my heart
You stole it away
Now I’ll never sing the road that I could take

Listen, I want you to burn my bridges down (down)
I said, I want you to burn my bridges down, down, down
Set me on fire
You set me
Set me on fire
You can burn my bridges down.”

***

Something I Need is another song for Cami and Evan, because they do understand each other on a different level. They do some crazy things for each other and that’s what I love about their relationship. It’s imperfect but their strong wills are a match.

Favorite Lyrics:

“And I had the week that came from hell
And yes I know that you could tell
But you’re like the net under the ledge
When I go flying off the edge
You go flying off as well.”

Leave Out All the Rest by Linkin Park

This is another song that captures Cami’s essence in Revived. She’s been through so much and has been broken and had to put herself back together all while dealing with her morally ambiguous actions she thought were justified. In the end, she hopes that people can forgive her for her flawed humanity, because it’s her most precious thing and she’d never trade it for anything.

Favorite Lyrics:

“Don’t be afraid
I’ve taken my beating
I’ve shared what I’ve made
I’m strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I’ve never been perfect
But neither have you
So, if you’re asking me, I want you to know

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
And don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest.”

This Love by Taylor Swift

This Love is Cami and Evan’s theme song for their relationship throughout the series. They’ve been through so much together—good and bad—but they always find a way back to each other. They have a sometimes brutal relationship, but they’d also do anything for each other, even if it might not be what is best, which neither of them really know what is best, just that they’d do anything to see that they’re okay in the end.

Favorite Lyrics:

“Your kiss, my cheek, I watched you leave
Your smile, my ghost, I fell to my knees
When you’re young you just run
But you come back to what you need

This love is good, this love is bad
This love is alive back from the dead
These hands had to let it go free
And this love came back to me.”
