The music of The Way We Fall – “One More Time With Feeling”

Have a little time, so I’m finally doing a non-guest post update! We haven’t quite finished going through the songs on The Way We Fall‘s unofficial soundtrack. Number 13 is Regina Spektor’s “One More Time With Feeling”:

To me this is a song about still trying and fighting to survive, even when circumstances are dire… which is pretty fitting for the book, particularly the final section. The hospital imagery in the lyrics makes sense with the story. But mostly I love the chorus, which I can imagine Kaelyn repeating to herself over and over as she gets through one more awful day:

“Hold on
One more time with feeling
Try it again
Breathing’s just a rhythm
Say it in your mind until you know that the words are right
This is why we fight”
