Book Characters As Folklore/Evermore Lyrics
Hello everyone! I'm back with another post of book characters as folklore/evermore lyrics. I enjoyed making the last one so much that I decided to come back with three more books. I also may have had a freakout when the newest rerecording announcements were made so there's that. Plus have you listened to the lyrical genius of these albums? I will stand by my view that folklore/evermore are some of her best lyrically, whether they're your favorite albums or not.
Here I'll be using characters from A Curse of Roses, Cemetery Boys, and The Beautiful to assign lyrics from songs on the albums I didn't use in the last post.

A Curse of Roses by Diana Pinguicha
A Curse of Roses Description: With just one touch, bread turns into roses. With just one bite, cheese turns into lilies.
There’s a famine plaguing the land, and Princess Yzabel is wasting food simply by trying to eat. Before she can even swallow, her magic—her curse—has turned her meal into a bouquet. She’s on the verge of starving, which only reminds her that the people of Portugal have been enduring the same pain.
If only it were possible to reverse her magic. Then she could turn flowers…into food.
Fatyan, a beautiful Enchanted Moura, is the only one who can help. But she is trapped by magical binds. She can teach Yzabel how to control her curse—if Yzabel sets her free with a kiss.
As the King of Portugal’s betrothed, Yzabel would be committing treason, but what good is a king if his country has starved to death?
With just one kiss, Fatyan is set free. And with just one kiss, Yzabel is yearning for more.
She’d sought out Fatyan to help her save the people. Now, loving her could mean Yzabel’s destruction.
Yzabel: Take me to the lakes where all the poets went to die // I don't belong, and my beloved, neither do you - the lakes, folklore
Fatyan: Wait for the signal and I'll meet you after dark // Show me the places where the others gave you scars - willow, evermore
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
Cemetery Boys Description: Yadriel has summoned a ghost, and now he can't get rid of him.
When his traditional Latinx family has problems accepting his true gender, Yadriel becomes determined to prove himself a real brujo. With the help of his cousin and best friend Maritza, he performs the ritual himself, and then sets out to find the ghost of his murdered cousin and set it free.
However, the ghost he summons is actually Julian Diaz, the school's resident bad boy, and Julian is not about to go quietly into death. He's determined to find out what happened and tie off some loose ends before he leaves. Left with no choice, Yadriel agrees to help Julian, so that they can both get what they want. But the longer Yadriel spends with Julian, the less he wants to let him leave.
Julian: And he's passing by // Rare as the glimmer of a comet in the sky - long story short, evermore
Yadriel: Chains around my demons, wool to brave the seasons // One single thread of gold tied me to you - invisible string, folklore
Maritza: Sequin smile, black lipstick // Sensual politics // When you are young, they assume you know nothing - cardigan, folklore
The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh
The Beautiful Description: In 1872, New Orleans is a city ruled by the dead. But to seventeen-year-old Celine Rousseau, New Orleans provides her a refuge after she's forced to flee her life as a dressmaker in Paris. Taken in by the sisters of the Ursuline convent along with six other girls, Celine quickly becomes enamored with the vibrant city from the music to the food to the soirées and—especially—to the danger. She soon becomes embroiled in the city's glitzy underworld, known as La Cour des Lions, after catching the eye of the group's leader, the enigmatic Sébastien Saint Germain. When the body of one of the girls from the convent is found in the lair of La Cour des Lions, Celine battles her attraction to him and suspicions about Sébastien's guilt along with the shame of her own horrible secret.
When more bodies are discovered, each crime more gruesome than the last, Celine and New Orleans become gripped by the terror of a serial killer on the loose—one Celine is sure has set her in his sights . . . and who may even be the young man who has stolen her heart. As the murders continue to go unsolved, Celine takes matters into her own hands and soon uncovers something even more shocking: an age-old feud from the darkest creatures of the underworld reveals a truth about Celine she always suspected simmered just beneath the surface.
Celine: There goes the maddest woman this town has ever seen // She had a marvelous time ruining everything - the last great american dynasty, folklore
Bastian: I, I, I persist and resist the temptation to ask you // If one thing had been different // Would everything be different today? - the 1, folklore
