City of Heavenly Fire Soundtrack

Will you be releasing a music playlist like you did with the previous books? That would be so lovely! Just finished the book last night and I was so happy how it ended! Bless you for creating such an amazing series. 
I posted it a few months ago. But for anyone who missed it and likes to listen to music while they read, here it is again:

"I’m Sorry I Love You" by the Magnetic Fields

A single rose in your garden dwells
Like any rose it’s not itself
It is my love in your garden grows
but let’s pretend it’s just a rose
Well I’m sorry that I love you
It’s a phase that I’m going through
There is nothing that I can do
and I’m sorry that I love you
Do not listen to my song
Don’t remember it, don’t sing along

Let’s pretend it’s a work of art
Let’s pretend it’s not my heart.
The rose will fade when summer’s gone
The song will fade and I’ll be gone
because my heart is dying too
and it’s all the same to you.

Ryan Star “Losing your Memory”

Call all your friends 

And tell them you’re never coming back 

Cause this is the end 

Pretend that you want it 

Don’t react The damage is done 

The police are coming too slow now

I would have died

I would have loved you all my life.

Airborne Toxic Event, “Timeless”

Just help me through this moment
After everything I told you
How the weight of their loss is like the weight of the sun.
I see their faces near me,
I hear their voices calling,
It was like their lives were over before they begun.

"Us Ones In Between" by Sunset Rubdown

And I’ve heard of pious men

And I’ve heard of dirty fiends

But you don’t often hear

Of us ones in between…

And in the darkness I taught myself to hate.

But where were you, oh where were you?

And where the f*** did the sun go?

Ingrid Michaelson, “Breakable”

Have you ever thought about what protects our hearts?
Just a cage of rib bones and other various parts.
So it’s fairly simple to cut right through the mess,
And to stop the muscle that makes us confess.

And we are so fragile,
And our cracking bones make noise,
And we are just,
Breakable, breakable, breakable girls and boys.

"Epic Last Song" by Does It Offend You, Yeah

I called today but missed you again

Today’s the day I go up in flames

I sent the money to you, my dear

Today’s the day I burn away

I say baby, babe I’ve loved you a long time

"Samson" by Regina Spektor

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin’ on our heads
But they’re just old light, they’re just old light

"Control" by Garbage

The world might end,
The night might fall.
Rain on down and cover us all,
And drown us with the burdens of our sins.
Maybe I’ll look you in the eye,
Tell you, you don’t wanna die.
Maybe I’ll hold my breath and jump right in.

"Orange Sky" Alexei Murdoch

And I had a dream 
I stood beneath an orange sky 
With my sister standing by 
I said, “Sister, here is what I know now 
In your love, my salvation lies.”

"Your Ex-Lover is Dead" by Stars

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
Tried to reach deep but you couldn’t get in
Now you’re outside me
You see all the beauty
Repent all your sin

"Daughter" by Youth

And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one,
'Cause most of us are bitter over someone.
Setting fire to our insides for fun,
To distract our hearts from ever missing them.
But I’m forever missing him.

"Upward Over the Mountain" by Iron and Wine

Mother remember being so stern with that girl who was with me
Mother remember the blink of an eye when I breathed through your body

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds flying upwards over the mountain

Mother I made it up from the bruise on the floor of this prison
Mother I lost it all in the fear of the Lord I was given
Mother forget me now that the creek drank the cradle you sang to

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons can be birds taken broken up to the mountain.

Greg Laswell, “Goodbye”

Then lonely lay the day
I can’t remember you at all
And it’s not easy to say that day
Has already come and gone
And all that remains is a place
Where you no longer are

One day I won’t regret this
Oh how I want to believe that’s true
Once I pick up the parts I broke on you
I’ll get used to the idea
It’s not you.

"Sorrow," The National

Sorrow is my body on the waves
Sorrow is a girl inside my cage
I live in a city sorrow built
It’s in my honey, it’s in my milk.
It’s only half my heart alone,
On the water,
Cover me in rags and bones, sympathy.
'Cause I don't wanna get over you.
I don’t wanna get over you.

Bright Eyes, “A Perfect Sonnet”

We’re singing, I believe that lovers should be chained together
And thrown into a fire with their songs and letters
And left there to burn
Left there to burn in their arrogance
But as for me I’m coming to my final failure
I’ve killed myself with changes trying to make things better
But I ended up becoming something other than what I had planned to be
Now I believe that lovers should be draped in flowers
And laid entwined together on a bed of clover
And left there to sleep.
Left there to dream of their happiness.

Nick Cave “The Ship Song”

We talk about it all night long
We define our moral ground
But when I crawl into your arms
Everything, it comes tumbling down 

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around 

Your face has fallen sad now
For you know the time is nigh
When I must remove your wings
And you, you must try to fly.

fearless4malec:

Well that can’t be good.

British Nephilim interviews Cassandra Clare about City of Heavenly Fire

May, 2014

percabeth_4ever374: Cassandra, where did you come up with the idea of Shadowhunters and the whole complex idea of the Mortal Instruments world? Was it just one big inspiration or did lots of little things contribute to the making of the Shadowhunter world? Morg also wonders: What inspired you to write the Mortal Instruments series? Suzanne Collins said that she was flicking through the TV channels and morphed two shows together. What happened for you? 

It was a lot of smaller ideas that stacked up. One of my close friends was working in a tattoo parlor at the time, and being there gave me the idea for the rune system. I wanted to write something that would combine elements of traditional high fantasy—an epic battle between good and evil, terrible monsters, brave heroes, enchanted swords—and recast it through a modern, urban lens. So you have the Shadowhunters, who are these very classic warriors following their millennia-old traditions but in these urban, modern spaces: skyscrapers, warehouses, abandoned hotels, rock concerts. In fairy tales it was the dark and mysterious forest outside the town that held the magic and danger. I wanted to create a world where the city has become the forest—where these urban spaces hold their own enchantments, danger, mysteries, and strange beauty.
