Of course, this entire story is Grayson’s but the moments that just stick out for me are the times he was finally on the recovery path. Having known someone who went through that and having a tangential role in that story, I felt strongly about that phase. It’s Been A While by Staind was one of those songs I’d forgotten about. For that time when Grayson was at the clinic, it was like he was awakening. He was finally standing on his own, head clear, feeling like he had to find a purpose.
Going back to when he was still hooked, I remember, No Son of Mine from Genesis. It’s a song about words a father said to his son upon coming home. Julian never said anything like that to Grayson. He felt it and that’s why I chose the song. Grayson felt as if he wasn’t Julian’s son even though his father never said that to him but…you’ll have to read to find out what happened there.
