The music of The Way We Fall – “Sadie”

We’re up to song number twelve from The Way We Fall‘s unofficial soundtrack: Joanna Newsom’s “Sadie”:

This is another song that’s more about the general feeling to me than a very literal connection to the story. The lyrics talk about death (“And ’til then we pray and suspend/The notion that these lives do never end”), the unpredictability of life (“And all that I knew/Is moving away from me/And all that I know/Is blowing like tumbleweed”), and the need to hold on to what’s important to us (“And you do lose/What you don’t hold”). I can imagine Kaelyn listening to “Sadie” toward the end of the book, and feeling both reassured and saddened by it.
