Song's that bring a tear.

My Heart is Broken ~Evanescence...

 

"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

Even the nights are better (Air Supply).

 

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.

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

Now and Forever

-Carole King

 

Now and forever, you are a part of me

And the memory cuts like a knife

Didn't we find the ecstasy, didn't we share the daylight

When you walked into my life

 

Now and forever, I'll remember

All the promises still unbroken

And think about all the words between us

That never needed to be spoken

 

We had a moment, just one moment

That will last beyond a dream, beyond a lifetime

We are the lucky ones

Some people never get to do all we got to do

Now and forever, I will always think of you

 

Didn't we come together, didn't we live together

Didn't we cry together

Didn't we play together, didn't we love together

And together we lit up the world

 

I miss the tears, I miss the laughter

I miss the day we met and all that followed after

Sometimes I wish I could always be with you

The way we used to do

Now and forever, I will always think of you

Now and forever, I will always be with you

https://youtu.be/c7_Te7iDojA. I watched this one the Friday of the week David Bowie died and ended up sobbing so hard I had trouble breathing.  I had to pause it midway through and run into another room because of how badly I was hyperventilating.

 

DH and I both loved Bowie and NIN - they were two of our very favorites.  So of course, I was thinking about Tim the whole time I in addition to Bowie.  Tim actually got to see that tour and would often (lovingly) torture me with the fact, since I was only 10 years old at the time while he was 18.  And it didn't help the matter that his urn is on a bookshelf next to the TV, so I could keep looking back and forth between two dead men who I loved very dearly (albeit in totally different ways obviously).

My grief anthem will forever be Phosphorescent's Song for Zula (

).  Its been a few years for me now but i heard this just after my husband died of brain cancer after two very ugly years from diagnosis to death and it will always be "that" song for me, the one that can remind me of the horrific pain and confusion I was in once he died.  I did race out on desert plains all night trying to keep him alive and then survive with a child to raise and a career while no one understood why I seemed like a caged animal.  This song covered it all for me. 

 

I've always turned to music as a source of comfort and strength since I was a little kid but this song nearly did me in at the time.

The irony, three years down the line, is that I did "open myself that way again"....

"I Miss My Friend" by Darryl Worley

 

 

Based on lyrics alone, it's unclear if this is about a break-up or something more permanent . . . . . but the message of the video is clear.

Having a really tough night tonight missing T terribly. When I feel so drenched in this pain, it reminds me how much I owe him for all the love and joy he brought into my life. His void has left me quite shattered, but oh how blessed I was to have been so loved and supported. This song helps me try to remember that...

 

 

I miss you so much T. Thank you for all the love and happiness you brought to my life.

There are a few songs that just make me a mess.

I'm scared of hearing one when out someplace public and having a meltdown.

This was the last song my husband learned to play on his guitar.....he was an amazing guitar player. Also the song he chose to have when we carried his casket out. I have never heard it until last week when I was in town at a shop when it came on. I froze, had to dump my shopping and run to the car.
