My First Single!!

About a year ago, when I was surfing YouTube I stumbled upon a song, “If We Fall” by SHE SAID SAVE ME, and instantly fell in love with both the lyrics and the male vocal. I put the song on my writing playlist and looked up the Toronto-based band on Facebook… and liked their page. A while later, I received a PM from Joe Vercillo, saying that if my books were ever adapted for film or TV I should feel free to use his music. I had no idea who he was, but looked him up. Imagine my fan girl sqee moment when I discovered that he was the lead vocalist for SHE SAID SAVE ME! We have been Facebook friends ever since. 


The Portal Chronicles starts off with a serendipitous meeting in a London pub, which propels the lives of the characters into a time warp of what-ifs. During the prologue, which is the key to the story, Rupert is humming a song in that London pub where Olivia and he seal their fate. I always wondered what he was singing. Until late one night, when I closed my eyes and “heard” it. I wrote the lyrics and SHE SAID SAVE ME put it to music. What better day than Valentine’s Day to release this song that defines the romance that is PORTAL? 

Enjoy!!

LYRICS

Tonight you wished upon our star
I had this feeling
Releasing dreams into the dark
Starlight revealing
A shooting star of promises
No delusions
Fades into the lights below
A spark of illusion

It’s fantasy, unwritten destiny
A portal to a secret wish
Is this real, or is this just a midsummer night dream’s what-if
Is this a dream of you and me

Is this a dream of you and me
Is this a dream of you and me

What if you’re not real, just hallucination?
An imaginary fixation
What if we escape to a new dimension?
Through a time warp in a broken constellation

It’s fantasy, unwritten destiny
A portal to a secret wish
Is this real, or is this just a midsummer night dream’s what-if

Is this a dream of you and me
Is this a dream of you and me
Is this a dream of you and me
