Songs that make you cry..........
    #1381617 - 03/16/03 04:46 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I'm interested in knowing what songs, specifically, make us cry, and why. I'm directing this mainly to the men here, but the women can chime in as well  :wink:

For me, it's 3 songs, predominantly:

Father and Son, by Cat Stevens

It's not time to make a change
Just relax, take it easy
You're still young, that's your fault
There's so much you have to know
Find a girl, settle down
If you want, you can marry
Look at me, I am old
But I'm happy

I was once like you are now
And I know that it's not easy
To be calm when you've found
Something going on
But take your time, think a lot
I think of everything you've got
For you will still be here tomorrow
But your dreams may not

How can I try to explain
When I do he turns away again
And it's always been the same
Same old story
From the moment I could talk
I was ordered to listen
Now there's a way and I know
That I have to go away
I know I have to go

It's not time to make a change
Just sit down and take it slowly
You're still young that's your fault
There's so much you have to go through
Find a girl, settle down
If you want, you can marry
Look at me, I am old
But I'm happy

All the times that I've cried
Keeping all the things I knew inside
And it's hard, but it's harder
To ignore it
If they were right I'd agree
But it's them they know, not me
Now there's a way and I know
That i have to go away
I know I have to go

I was adopted, a child of divorce, then lost 2 step-fathers to cancer. Now I'm a father. I don't think I need say more.

Can't get it outta my head, by ELO

This song was playing after I hadn't seen my wife and child for 6 months while I was overseas. Some girl was listening to it, crying, I might add. I'd always loved the song.

The Long and Winding Road, by the Beatles

Again. A woman! damned if you do and damned if you don't! :grin:

Every time I listen to the Cat Stevens song I sob like a two year old. The song means a lot to me.

Black Muddy River -every time I hear it I think about Jerry's last show and how it was his last song. And if only I knew it would be the last time I would ever hear him sing it.

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

"Looks Like Rain"

a beautiful, touching song to begin with, with way too much personal connection (anyone who was around last winter probably heard more about this than they deserved or wanted.... sorry bout that....)

Old man-neil young...I think that's what the song's title is....
The scientist-coldplay make's me think about my ex, and that's not good....

ya, right after jerry died, a few local radio stations were airing some fine dead tunes...
"black muddy river" came on & the (ex- now) wife & i both had wet cheeks; almost hard to drive the car when it's raining inside...

On your own - Verve

Tell me what you see
Was it a dream? Was I in it?
Life seemed so obscene until it's over
Who knows?

All I want is someone who can fill the hole
In the life I know
In between life and death when there's nothing left
Do you wanna know?


You come in on your own
And you leave on your own
Forget the lovers you've know
And your friends on your own


Tell me if it's true
That I need you, you are changing
I've seen this road before down on the floor
It is hurting me


All I want is someone who can fill the hole in the life I know
In between life and death when there's nothing left
Do you want to know?


You come in on your own
And you leave on your own
Forget the lovers you've know
And your friends on your own


Lies I've got to get rid of this hole inside




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


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

When it comes
I'll know, I know
Just take my clothes and leave
And I'll be gone

Well here it is...the only song that ever made me cry...

Wrote A Song For Everyone
Lyrics: (J.C. Fogerty)

Met myself a comin' county welfare line.
I was feelin' strung out, Hung out on the line.
Saw myself a goin', down to war in June.
All I want, All I want is to write myself a tune.

CHORUS:
Wrote A Song For Ev'ryone,
Wrote a song for truth.
Wrote A Song For Ev'ryone
And I couldn't even talk to you.

Got myself arrested, Wound me up in jail.
Richmond 'bout to blow up, Communication failed.
If you see the answer, now's the time to say.
All I want, All I want is to get you down to pray.

CHORUS

CHORUS

Saw the people standin' thousand years in chains.
Somebody said it's diff'rent now, look, it's just the same.
Pharoahs spin the message, round and round the truth.
They could have saved a million people, How can I tell you?

CHORUS
CHORUS
CHORUS
