Sam Smith with John Legend, Lay Me Down:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvJX7OgPYww

Yes, I do, I believe
That one day I will be
Where I was right there
Right next to you

And it's hard
The days just seems so dark
The moon, the stars
Are nothing without you

Your touch, your skin
Where do I begin?
No words can explain
The way I'm missing you

Deny this emptiness
This hole that I'm inside
These tears
They tell their own story

"See You Again" , Carrie Underwood

When he left for Saudi I heard this and had him watch the video while he was there; who knew the meaning it would eventually come to have, when it was played at his funeral :*(
I can't look at the stars they make me wonder where you are. 
Stars.... up on heaven's boulevard
And if I know you at all
I know you've gone too far
 So I .... I can't look at the stars --Grace Potter

Fiddler On The Roof, "Sunrise, Sunset"

I know it might seem a little odd as this song's about watching your children grow up, but it makes me sad in the fact my boys are growing up without their dad. 

Awesome play, however!
Our end is where I begin

So, I've been listening to the Disney radio channel today because it brings back good memories of when my girls were little.  And, who knew a song from Pocahontas, "Where Do I Go From Here", would sum up what I've been thinking today

But where do I go from here?
So many voices ringing in my ear
Which is the voice that I was meant to hear?
How will I know?
Where do I go from here?

My world has changed and so have I
I've learned to choose
And even learned to say goodbye

The path ahead's so hard to see
It winds and bends but where it ends
Depends on only me

In my heart I don't feel part of so much I've known
Now it seems it's time to start,
A new life on my own

Adele's version of "Love Song"

I tagged her on a link to it on facebook while she was alive, and she re-iterated some of the lyrics in the comments. So now if it comes on I lose it.

"God Only Knows" by the Beach Boys

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkPy18xW1j8
I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I'll make you so sure about it
God only knows what I'd be without you

If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on, believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would livin' do me
God only knows what I'd be without you

God only knows what I'd be without you

(repeat verse 2)

If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on, believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would livin' do me

God only knows what I'd be without you (repeat to fade)

-----------------

This is one of those songs I've known for years that gained an entirely new facet after I lost Tim.  The lines "If you should ever leave me/Though life would still go on, believe me/The world could show nothing to me/So what good would livin' do me" - I think most of us can relate.  No, our lives (sometimes much to our surprise) didn't stop after they died.  But wow, did the world lose all of its color, all of its joy.  Life goes on, but why?

I'm not a believer, but when they repeat (layered with such beautiful harmonies) "God only knows what I'd be without you..."
I lose it a little bit, still.  When he was alive and we'd talk about the song, it was such a wonderfully hypothetical question.  But now I cry, because now I know  :'(
Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face

Do You Realize??

This is currently a song I listen to over and over... and over.


All That I Have Sown - Bebo Norman

https://youtu.be/pYWUltUqnKo

 
I believe when they put her in the ground
I think they buried part of me
Because I've been searching, I've been looking all around
But I cannot find the heart of me, the heart of me
So I'll put my fingers in this soil upon her grave
And I will plant for her a garden
And every flower, a reminder of her face
Will grow up graceful as a pardon
And all that grows is her story told
As life unfolds here before us
The peace I've found in this broken ground
I can see her in the harvest...of all that I have sown
Long before I was covered up in gray
Before the old had bent my bones
We grew our children in the red Georgia clay
They were our garden and our home
And all that grows is our story told
As life unfolds here before
The peace we found in that broken ground
I can see them in the harvest...of all that I have sown
And when my life is done
I pray the kingdom come
And take me to Glory
It's living inside me
It was planted like a seed
All to tell a story
I believe when they put me in the ground
There will remain a part of me
Because I've been searching and the joy that I have found
Is living in my family...it's all that I have sown
Love is a difficult & lifelong journey.  You shouldn't have to travel it alone.

This is more from the perspective of losing a parent, but the video brings it around to being widowed.

My Heart is Broken ~Evanescence...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0qIG-h4rIE

"My Heart Is Broken"

I will wander 'til the end of time, torn away from you.

I pulled away to face the pain.
I close my eyes and drift away.
Over the fear that I will never find
A way to heal my soul.
And I will wander 'til the end of time
Torn away from you.

My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us from sorrow's hold
(Over my heart).

I can't go on living this way
But I can't go back the way I came
Chained to this fear that I will never find
A way to heal my soul
And I will wander 'til the end of time
Half alive without you

My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us

Change - open your eyes to the light
I denied it all so long, oh so long
Say goodbye, goodbye

My heart is broken
Release me, I can't hold on
Deliver us
My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us
My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us from sorrow's hold

Sin?ad O Connor - Nothing Compares 2U

I use to sob & sob when I listened to it. Still get very teary eyed.

Even the nights are better (Air Supply).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRx58DgOxeg

We both had sad divorces from cheaters.
The lyrics are right on the spot.

"I used to think I was tied to a heartache
That was the heartbreak, but now that I've found you
(...)
You, you knew just what to do
'Cause you had been lonely too
And you showed me how
To ease the pain and
You did more than mend a broken heart
'Cause now you've made a fire start"


There are others that make me cry but this one was OUR song.

These two:

Alison Krauss - When You Say Nothing At All
https://youtu.be/1SCOimBo5tg

Garth Brooks - To Make You Feel My Love
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x24mbmq_garth-brooks-to-make-you-feel-my-love_music

The crazy thing is I was on a business trip and played these songs on the phone for him a few days before he died.  I told him these two songs by these two artists made me think of him and how much I loved him.

My widowed playlist on iTunes has been holding steady for a while at just over 120 songs.  I added this one today:
