  • Iris by the Goo goo dolls, makes me cry every time - it's not even particularly sad content wise, but there is so much emotion in there it gets to me!

    The Tide - Spill Canvas (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAt1ejlO_7Q) is one in particular. About parents who split and heartbroken mother neglected her three children.

    There's actually a fair number of songs by The Spill Canvas and Red Jumpsuit Apparatus that really get to me when I listen to the lyrics.

    I LOOOOVE the song If I Die Young - The Band Perry .... I just love it. It's such a beautiful song, very sad, but beautiful.

    Black - Pearl Jam

    Hey...oooh...
    Sheets of empty canvas
    Untouched sheets of clay
    Were laid spread out before me
    As her body once did
    All five horizons
    Revolved around her soul
    As the earth to the sun
    Now the air I tasted and breathed
    Has taken a turn
    Ooh and all I taught her was everything
    Ooh I know she gave me all that she wore
    And now my bitter hands
    Chafe beneath the clouds
    Of what was everything
    Oh the pictures have
    All been washed in black
    Tattooed everything
    I take a walk outside
    I'm surrounded by
    Some kids at play
    I can feel their laughter
    So why do I sear
    Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin
    Round my head
    I'm spinning
    Oh, I'm spinning
    How quick the sun can, drop away...
    And now my bitter hands
    Cradle broken glass
    Of what was everything
    All the pictures had
    All been washed in black
    Tattooed everything
    All the love gone bad
    Turned my world to black
    Tattooed all I see
    All that I am
    All I'll be...
    Yeah
    Uh huh...uh huh...ooh...
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life
    I know you'll be a sun
    In somebody else's sky
    But why
    Why
    Why can't it be
    Why can't it be mine
    (not sure?)
    mm-hmm no yeah no
    mm mmmm no nonono yeah yeah
    we-
    we belong
    we belong together
    together
    oooh ooh
    we-
    we belong
    we belong together
    oh yeah

    I pretty much hate country, but they do know how to do a tearjerker. "What about the love we made?" by Shelby Lynne (about trying to divide up the stuff after a divorce, and what do you do about the kids) makes me cry 'til snot runs out my nose. I also find "You're not drinkin' enough" by Don Henley (def country flavor) stirring.

    "Alone Again (Naturally)" by Gilbert O'Sullivan. A guy is left at the altar, he considers suicide, then his father dies and his mother dies. Brutal. It really grabs me every time I hear it.
    Yep. I posted the lyrics in an earlier post.

    Even though about getting back together still is sad.

    Journey

    Lying beside you
    Here in the dark
    Feeling your heart with mine
    Softly you whisper
    You're so sincere
    How could our love be so blind
    We sailed on together
    We drifted apart
    And here you are
    By my side

    So now I come to you
    With open arms
    Nothing to hide
    Believe what I say
    So here I am
    With open arms
    Hoping you'll see
    What your love means to me
    Open arms

    Living without you
    Living alone
    This empty house seems so cold
    Wanting to hold you
    Wanting you near
    How much I wanted you home

    But now that you've come back
    Turned night into day
    I need you to stay

    So now I come to you
    With open arms
    Nothing to hide
    Believe what I say
    So here I am
    With open arms
    Hoping you'll see
    What your love means to me
    Open arms
