Song's that bring a tear.

Recommended Posts

I am on my phone and it sucks, so I can't post a link.

 

Just Breathe by Pearl Jam is beautiful. I actually learned about it from a member of YWBB. I have more, but will have to think about a few, and hopefully I will be at a computer so I can post links.

Another user (I'm so sorry I don't remember who so I could give credit) shared this song on a thread on YWBB and I absolutely adore it.  The video is also wonderfully heartbreaking - I was trying to describe it to New Guy a few weeks ago and started crying from just talking about it.

I have so many sad songs I've added to my playlist but this is one that I had playing at hubby's funeral and it still makes me cry:

A friend played this on an Acoustic guitar and then my son played on the piano at the funeral.

Way too many to name... Unchained melody by the righteous brothers was the last to make me cry, though everybody hurts (REM) is up there. Fare thee well love (Rankin family), the dance (Garth brooks) fix you (coldplay), always on my mind (Willie nelson) and many many more. Not to mention all the songs from musicals that could be on this list

Sam Smith with John Legend, Lay Me Down: 

 

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 :*(

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!

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

 

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  :'(

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

 

 

All That I Have Sown - Bebo Norman

 

 

 

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
