Playlist: Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

HER INNER SONG: A Playlist for Speak

Lemon by Katy Rose (Melinda)

They've clipped my wings again
Tore them apart and then
Left me
No use to fly away to
My yesterday
Of freedom

Rubbed Out by Duncan Sheik (Mr. Freeman's view of Melinda)

She rubs it out
She covers it over
She's harder by far than a war-torn soldier

Made of Gold by Jonatha Brooke (Melinda's parents)

What you want most will allude you
What you want most will allude you
Because everything before it changes
Seems to be made of gold

Rinse by Vanessa Carlton (Rachel)

She'd do anything to sparkle in his eye
She would suffer, she would fight, and compromise


But everything happens for reasons that she will never
'Til she knows the heart of a woman will never be
found in the arms of a man

Fragile by Maria Mena (Melinda)

I've been walking around all day thinking
I think I have a problem
I think I think too much
I've been taught to hold back my tears and avoid them
But you've made pain into something I could touch

Come Rest Your Head by Tonic (David)

Trust, I know, is not such a dirty word
Trust is something that I have barely heard
Honesty is not so far away
Empty words are all you'll have to say

Pain by Jimmy Eat World (Melinda)

I never thought I'd walk away from you
I did

Just a Little Girl by Amy Studt (Melinda)

'Cause I'm just a little girl you see
But there's a h@!! of a lot more to me
Don't ever underestimate what I can do
Don't ever tell me how I'm meant to be

Read my interview with Laurie Halse Anderson.
