Please excuse me while I get all Hunger Games fangirlesque for a moment here
Do any other Hunger Games fans get annoying with Taylor Swift's "Keep Your Eyes Open" song lyrics? I mean, why didn't anyone tell her what the books were about before tasking her with creating a song for the movie?
Let's take a look at the lyrics for a moment, shall we?
"Yesterday we were just children
Dreaming dreams with happy endings
In backyards, winning battles with our wooden swords."
It makes it sound like Katniss and Peeta were such innocent children before thrown into the Hunger Games.
In reality, Katniss was escaping under an electric fence and hunting illegally daily under penalty of death to try and prevent her mother and sister from dying from starvation after her father died in the coal mines, an experience she frequently had nightmares about.
Peeta, on the other hand, was slaving away in a bakery, baking bread for other people that he wasn't allowed to eat despite being near starving himself, under the watchful eye of his abusive mother.
They both lived in constant fear of being selected to fight to the death in the Hunger Games, and of the totalitarian government.
Sounds like they were "dreaming dreams with happy endings," no?
Yo someone28624 I'mma let you finish but I just want to say--
George R.R. Martin wrote one of the best series of all time, OF ALL TIME!
"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."
"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."
