Love Songs (happy or sad ones)

I thought it might be nice to start a thread where we could post some songs about whatever our mood is at the time.

Today, I was thinking about Lost Loves and here is my song:

Long Long Time Lyrics
Artist(Band):Linda Ronstadt

written by Gary B. White
Universal MCA Music (ASCAP)

Love will abide, take things in stride
Sounds like good advice but there's no one at my side
And time washes clean love's wounds unseen
That's what someone told me but I don't know what it means.

Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine
And I think I'm gonna love you for a long long time

Caught in my fears
Blinking back the tears
I can't say you hurt me when you never let me near
And I never drew one response from you
All the while you fell all over girls you never knew
Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine
And I think it's gonna hurt me for a long long time

Wait for the day
You'll go away
Knowing that you warned me of the price I'd have to pay
And life's full of flaws
Who knows the cause?
Living in the memory of a love that never was
Cause I've done everything I know to try and change your mind
and I think I'm gonna miss you for a long long time
Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine
And I think I'm gonna love you for a long long time.

I ran across it recently and had completely forgotten about this song. I liked it so much that I am learning to play it on my piano. It's such a tear jerker that I love it!

Hi there tenderchichi

Songs can make you sad, can't they !

I have been listening to The Carpenters, whilst I make dinner. I hadn't listened to them for about 30 years, and boom, I put it on. Well....the memories that came flooding back...I was right back singing these songs with my brother, at home.

I felt REALLY SAD, all those years had passed.

Another thing that made me sad was listening to that angelic voice of Karen Carpenter, and then she died such a tragic death, from anorexia, when she was so young. How sad !

What a silly sausage I am !

Here's one I've been listening to. The song is from the movie "Once" (Great movie by the way). I can't find a clip of the song other than this YouTube video with some Russian show playing, but the song is beautiful, nonetheless.

"The Book of Love" by Peter Gabriel. From movie "Shall We Dance" soundtrack.

The book of love is long and boring
No one can lift the damn thing
It's full of charts and facts and figures and instructions for dancing
But I
I love it when you read to me
And you
You can read me anything
The book of love has music in it
In fact that's where music comes from
Some of it is just transcendental
Some of it is just really dumb
But I
I love it when you sing to me
And you
You can sing me anything
The book of love is long and boring
And written very long ago
It's full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes
And things we're all too young to know
But I
I love it when you give me things
And you
You ought to give me wedding rings
And I
I love it when you give me things
And you
You ought to give me wedding rings
And I
I love it when you give me things
And you
You ought to give me wedding rings
You ought to give me wedding rings

Hey carla -
Darn pretty song! And, the "Book of Love"!
The lyrics to the song:

The Hill, Lyrics by Glen Hansard
Featured in the motion picture Once

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

Walking up the hill tonight
and you have closed your eyes
I wish I didn't have to make
all those mistakes and be wise
Please try to be patient
and know that I'm still learning
I'm sorry that you have to see
the strength inside me burning

Where are you my angel now
don't you see me crying?
And I know that you can't do it all
but you can't say I'm not trying
I'm on my knees in front of him
but he doesn't seem to see me
But all his troubles on his mind
he's looking right through me
And I'm letting myself down
beside this fire in you
And I wish that you could see
that half my troubles too

Looking at you sleeping
I'm with the man I love
I'm sitting here weeping
while the hours pass so slow
And I know that in the morning
I'll have to let you go
And you'll be just a man
once I used to know
And for these past few days
someone I don't recognise
This isn't all my fault
when will you realise

Looking at you leaving, I'm looking for a sign

Can you explain how to post a link?

RE: Love Songs (happy or sad ones)

To post a link: Just copy and paste the address into the "Optional Link URL" part.

Thanks for writing out the lyrics. I have seen different versions a lot of places. There are a couple lines I think may be different, not sure but here's what I hear:

And I'm letting myself down
BY SATISFYING YOU
And I wish that you could see
that I HAVE my troubles too

Looking at you sleeping
I'm with the man I KNOW

Before we all start crying into our frappachinos here's one I like, but in a different mood:

LOVE STINKS
J. Geils Band

You love her
But she loves him
And he loves somebody else
You just can't win
And so it goes
Till the day you die
This thing they call love
It's gonna make you cry
I've had the blues
The reds and the pinks
One thing for sure

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Two by two and side by side
Love's gonna find you yes it is
You just can't hide
You'll hear it call
Your heart will fall
Then love will fly
It's gonna soar
I don't care for any casanova thing
All I can say is
Love stinks

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

I've been through diamonds

LOVE HURTS
Boudleaux bryant

Love hurts, love scars
Love wounds, and mars any heart
Not tough or stong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud, holds a lot of rain
Love hurts......ooh, ooh love hurts

Im young , I know, but even so
I know a thing or two, and I learned from you
I really learned a lot, really learned a lot
Love is like a flame, it burns you when its hot
Love hurts......ooh, ooh love hurts

Some fools think of happiness
Blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves I guess
Theyre not foolin me

I know it isnt true ,i know it isnt true
Love is just a lie, made to make you blue
Love hurts......
Ooh, ooh love hurts,ooh, ooh love hurts

I know it isnt true, I know it isnt true
Love is just a lie,made to make you blue
Love hurts......
Ooh, ooh love hurts, ooh, ooh love

Whenever I'm alone with

Whenever I'm alone with you

Popi, yes! Carpenters. And ANYTHING by Bread - anyone remember The Diary? Sob.

RE: Love Songs (happy or sad ones)

Also, John Gary's version of "Unchained Melody".


 o
RE: Love Songs (happy or sad ones)

Here's another of my favorite sad love songs. You may notice it's in Russian. My taste in music is about as disverse as my taste in men!

Anyway, it is metaphorical and hard to translate.. but I think it is about a boy who lives alone in a house... 'weathering the wheather' of past loves and being alone thinking of those past pains becoming even more saddened and depressed thinking he has been fated to always be alone.

(this song has a bit of a twist to it!)
The Diary/Bread

I found her diary underneath a tree.
And started reading about me.
The words she's written took me by surpise,
You'd never read them in her eyes.
They said that she had found the love
She waited for.
Wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.
When she confronted with the writing there,
Simply pretended not to care.
I passed it off as just in keeping with
Her total disconcerting air
And though she tried to hide
The love that she denied,
Wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.
And as I go through my life,
I will give to her my wife,
All the sweet things that I can find.
I found her diary underneath a tree.
And started reading about me.
The words began to stick and tears to flow.
Her meaning now was clear to see.
The love she'd waited for
Was someone else not me.
Wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.
And as I go through my life,
I will wish for her his wife
All the sweet things that she can find
All the sweet things they can find.

Depeche Mode

The MEANING OF LOVE (kinda funny)

Ive read more than a hundred books
Seen love mentioned many thousand times
But despite all the places Ive looked
Its still no clearer its just not enough
Im still no nearer the meaning of love

Noted down all my observations
Spent an evening watching television
Still I couldnt say with precision
Know its a feeling and it comes from above
But whats the meaning, the meaning of love?

The meaning of love
Tell me the meaning of love

From the notes that Ive made so far
Love seems something like wanting a scar
But I could be wrong, Im just not sure you see,
Ive never been in love before

Next I asked several friends of mine
If they could spare a few minutes of their time
Their look suggested that Id lost my mind
Tell me the answer, my lord high above
Tell me the meaning, the meaning of love

The meaning of love
Tell me the meaning of love

From the notes that Ive made so far
Love seems something like wanting a scar
But I could be wrong, Im just not sure you see,
Ive never been in love before

Tell me the meaning of love

RE: Love Songs (happy or sad ones)

She's a Very Lovely Woman/Emmitt Rhodes

Shes a very lovely woman but I think you better turn her down this time
cause shes used all her charms on you and soon you'll miss the things you left behind
A girl who loves you thinking of you oh
my friend shes a lovely woman, a lovely woman
and now she wants you to forget the things that took us so long to get and find
and go away with her and follow her and sin and drink her wine
Make your mind up or wind up in life of sin
oh even thooough she is lovely her world is ugly and go back no more
Even though she is lovely it is not enough to ruin our lives
oh no
She's a very lovely woman but I think you better turn her down this time.....

Performed by Linda Ronstadt.

Remembering when this song first came out and discussing with friends as we turned over the 45 why it was such a big deal? Why not just bake another cake!

Macarthur Park/Jimmy Webb
Sung by Richard Harris

Spring was never waiting for us, girl
It ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance
Between the parted pages and were pressed
In love's hot, fevered iron
Like a striped pair of pants

MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!

I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave
On the ground around your knees
The birds, like tender babies in your hands
And the old men playing checkers by the trees

MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!

There will be another song for me
For I will sing it
There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine while it is warm
And never let you catch me looking at the sun
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
You'll still be the one

I will take my life into my hands and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes and I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
And my passion flow like rivers through the sky
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
I'll be thinking of you
And wondering why

MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!
Oh, no
No, no
Oh no!!

HOW CAN I TELL YOU/Cat Stevens

How can I tell you that I love you, I love you
But I cant think of right words to say
I long to tell you that Im always thinking of you
Im always thinking of you, but my words
Just blow away, just blow away
It always ends up to one thing, honey
And I cant think of right words to say
Wherever I am girl, Im always walking with you
Im always walking with you, but I look and youre not there
Whoever Im with, Im always, always talking to you
Im always talking to you, and Im sad that
You cant hear, sad that you cant hear
It always ends up to one thing, honey,
When I look and youre not there
I need to know you, need to feel my arms around you
Feel my arms around you, like a sea around a shore
And -- each night and day I pray, in hope
That I might find you, in hope that I might
Find you, because hearts can do no more
It always ends up to one thing honey, still I kneel upon the floor
How can I tell you that I love you, I love you
But I cant think of right words to say
I long to tell you that Im always thinking of you
Im always thinking of you....
It always ends up to one thing honey
And I cant think of right words to say

I never heard this song. The lyrics and music wrap around each other....The power of goodbye.....

Madonna - The Power Of Goodbye

Your heart is not open so I must go
The spell has been broken, I loved you so
Freedom comes when you learn to let go
Creation comes when you learn to say no

You were my lesson I had to learn
I was your fortress you had to burn
Pain is a warning that something's wrong
I pray to God that it won't be long
Do ya wanna go higher?

Chorus:

There's nothing left to try
There's no place left to hide
There's no greater power
Than the power of good-bye

Your heart is not open so I must go
The spell has been broken, I loved you so
You were my lesson I had to learn
I was your fortress

Chorus2:

There's nothing left to lose
There's no more heart to bruise
There's no greater power
Than the power of good-bye

Learn to say good-bye
I yearn to say good-bye

SAD LISA/Cat Steven
She hangs her head and cries on my shirt.
She must be hurt very badly.
Tell me whats making you sadly?
Open your door, dont hide in the dark.
Youre lost in the dark, you can trust me.
cause you know thats how it must be.

Lisa lisa, sad lisa lisa.

Her eyes like windows, tricklin rain
Upon her pain getting deeper.
Though my love wants to relieve her.
She walks alone from wall to wall.
Lost in a hall, she cant hear me.
Though I know she likes to be near me.

Lisa lisa, sad lisa lisa.

She sits in a corner by the door.
There must be more I can tell her.
If she really wants me to help her.
Ill do what I can to show her the way.
And maybe one day I will free her.
Though I know no one can see her.

Lisa lisa, sad lisa lisa.

Tenderchichi,do you know what that Sad Lisa song is about?
To me it seems like something bad happend to Lisa and he wants to help her. Abuse or mental illness maybe? Very touching though.

Yes,I think kids have finally settled Madonna down!


 o
RE: Love Songs (happy or sad ones)

plasticgarden -

We usually wonder what an artist had in mind when writing lyrics to a song. I did a search and came up with fans' posts. One said they saw him perform this in concert and he mentioned "Sad Lisa" was about him. Another said he wrote it about his sister who had aspergers but I could find no mention of it in his bio.

It is probably better that the artist not tell what it is about so that it can be interpreted by the listener in a way that is personal to them.

It seems to me that "Lisa" has closed herself off. The song is about how he is trying to reach her but she is unable to receive his Love/Kindness.

That is my take on it.


 o
RE: Love Songs (happy or sad ones)

Correction on my last post.

Meant to say "autism" not aspergers. Sorry.

Is there a way to edit your post?


 o
RE: Love Songs (happy or sad ones)

No I wish there was though!


 o
RE: Love Songs (happy or sad ones)

a song that always makes me cry is All by myself by eric carmen or celine dion. It is a beautiful song.

Another one which may seem strange is Michael Jackson you are not alone. These both make me cry, if they ever come on the radio at work I have to leave the room. These both bring back happy and sad memories of my mam who passed away when I was 8.

Whitney houstons I have nothing and I wanna run to you have the same effect. They can be so soothing at times though...


 o
RE: Love Songs (happy or sad)..

sorry i didnt mean for that to sound depressing....


 o
RE: Love Songs (happy or sad ones)

Yeah, thanks, I just played Eric Carmen version of All by Myself on You Tube and had to turn it off it got me so depressed --LOL

Hey, what's that depressing song close to the same era that a woman sings (maybe Anne Murray, maybe not) about her friends all growing up and marrying (I think there was a line about 'ugly duckling me'). I know that's not much info, but if anyone is on the same page and know what song I'm talking about, please let me know the name of it. Thanks.


 o
RE: Love Songs (happy or sad )

another that i absolutely love is you needed me by boyzone or anne murray (I listen to a lot of old songs) or Dance with my father by Luther Vandross i think.

PETER GABRIEL/"Blood Of Eden"

I caught sight of my reflection
I caught it in the window
I saw the darkness in my heart
I saw the signs of my undoing
They had been there from the start
And the darkness still has work to do
The knotted chord's untying
They're heated and they're holy
Oh they're sitting there on high
So secure with everything they're buying

[Chorus:]
In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
We wanted the union
Oh the union of the woman
The woman and the man

My grip is surely slipping
I think I've lost my hold
Yes, I think I've lost my hold
I cannot get insurance anymore
They don't take credit, only gold
Is that a dagger or a crucifix I see
You hold so tightly in your hand
And all the while the distance grows between you and me
I do not understand

[Chorus]

At my request, you take me in
In that tenderness, I am floating away
No certainty, nothing to rely on
Holding still for a moment
What a moment this is
Oh for a moment of forgetting, a moment of bliss
Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

I can hear the distant thunder
Of a million unheard souls
Of a million unheard souls
Watch each one reach for creature comfort
For the filling of their holes

In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden
We wanted the union
Of the woman and the man

In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman
And the woman in the man

In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman
And the woman in the man

In the blood of Eden
We've done everything we can
In the blood of Eden
Saw the end as we began
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
It was all for the union
Oh, the union of the woman, the woman and the man.

I miss Croce.
"One Less Set Of Footsteps"/Jim Croce

We've been runnin' away from, somethin' we both know
We've long run out of things to say, and I think I better go
So don't be gettin' excited, a when you hear that slammin' door
'Cause there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, in the morning.

And we've been hidin' from somethin', that should have never gone this far
But after all it's what we've done, that makes us what we are
And you been talkin' in silence, but if it's silence you adore
Well there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, in the morning.

Well there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, one less man to walk in
One less pair of jeans upon your door, one less voice a-talkin'
But tomorrow's a dream away, hmm today has turned to dust
Your silver tongue has turned to clay, and your golden rule to rust
If that's the way that you want it, well it's the way I want it more
'Cause there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, in the morning.

Well there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, one less man to walk in
One less pair of jeans upon your door, one less voice a-talkin'
But tomorrow's a dream away, oh and today has turned to dust
Your silver tongue has turned to clay, and your golden rule to rust
If that's the way that you want it, well it's the way I want it more
'Cause there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, in the morning
Well there'll be one less set of footsteps on your floor, in the morning.

The Heart of the Matter/Don Henley

I got the call today, I didnt wanna hear
But I knew that it would come
An old, true friend of ours was talkin on the phone
She said youd found someone
And I thought of all the bad luck,
And the struggles we went through
And how I lost me and you lost you
What are these voices outside loves open door
Make us throw off our contentment
And beg for something more?
Im learning to live without you now
But I miss you sometimes
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I knew, Im learning again
Ive been tryin to get down
To the heart of the matter
But my will gets weak
And my thoughts seem to scatter
But I think its about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you dont love me anymore
These times are so uncertain
Theres a yearning undefined
And people filled with rage
We all need a little tenderness
How can love survive in such a graceless age?
The trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness
Theyre the very things - we kill I guess
Pride and competition
Cannot fill these empty arms
And the work I put between us
You know it doesnt keep me warm
Im learning to live without you now
But I miss you, baby
And the more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought Id figured out
I have to learn again
Ive been trying to get down
To the heart of the matter
But everything changes
And my friends seem to scatter
But I think its about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you dont love me anymore
There are people in your life whove come and gone
They let you down you know they hurt your pride
You better put it all behind you baby; life goes on
You keep carryin that anger; itll eat you up inside, baby
Ive been trying to get down
To the heart of the matter
But my will gets weak
And my thought seem to scatter
But I think its about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you dont love me
Ive been tryin to get down
To the heart of the matter
Because the flesh will get weak
And the ashes will scatter
So Im thinkin about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you dont love me
Forgiveness
Forgiveness - baby
Forgiveness
Forgiveness
Forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, you dont love me anymore

RE: Love Songs (happy or sad ones)

This song is for the Narcissists-

You're So Vain/Carly Simon

You walked into the party
Like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror
As you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

You had me several years ago
When I was still quite naive
Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?


I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

Well, I hear you went up to Saratoga
And your horse naturally won
Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun
Well, you're where you should be all the time
And when you're not, you're with
Some underworld spy or the wife of a close friend
Wife of a close friend, and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you? Don't you?


You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you

You're so vain (so vain)
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you? Don't you?

Beautiful People/Melanie

You live in the same world as I do
But somehow I never noticed
You before today
I'm ashamed to say

Beautiful people
We share the same back door
And it isn't right
We never met before
But then
We may never meet again
If I weren't afraid you'd laugh at me
I would run and take all your hands
And I'd gather everyone together for a day
And when we gather'd
I'll pass buttons out that say
Beautiful people
Then you'd never have to be alone
'Cause there'll always be someone
With the same button on as you
Include him in everything you do.

Beautiful people
You ride the same subway
As I do ev'ry morning
That's got to tell you something
We've got so much in common
I go the same direction that you do
So if you take care of me
Maybe I'll take care of you

Beautiful people
You look like friends of mine
And it's about time
That someone said it here and now
I make a vow that some time, somehow
I'll have a meeting
Invite ev'ryone you know
I'll pass out buttons to
The ones who come to show
Beautiful people
Never have to be alone
'Cause there'll always be someone
With the same button on as you
Include him in ev'rything you do
He may be sitting right next to you
He may be beautiful people too
And if you take care of him
Maybe I'll take care of you
And if you take care of him
Maybe I'll take care of you

While I love Love Song by the Cure, my favorite from them is Close to Me.

Close To Me

I've waited hours for this
I've made myself so sick
I wish I'd stayed asleep today
I never thought that this day would end
I never thought that tonight could ever be
This close to me

Just try to see in the dark
Just try to make it work
To feel the fear before you're here
I make the shapes come much too close
I pull my eyes out
Hold my breath
And wait until I shake

But if I had your faith
Then I could make it safe and clean
If only I was sure
That my head on the door was a dream

I've waited hours for this
I've made myself so sick
I wish I'd stayed asleep today
I never thought that this day would end
I never thought that tonight could ever be
This close to me

But if I had your face
I could make it safe and clean
If only I was sure
That my head on the door
Was a dream
I have no idea what this song means, but it *sounds* sexy!

I'm on a Cure kick...

Just Like Heaven

"Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream" she said
"The one that makes me laugh" she said
And threw her arms around my neck
"Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you"

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow
"Why are you so far away?" she said
"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you
That I'm in love with you"

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Just like heaven

Hard Candy~
Artist:Counting Crows

On certain Sundays in November
When the weather bothers me
I empty drawers of other summer's
Where my shadows used to be
She is standing by the water
As her smile begins to curl
In this or any other summer
She is something all together different
Never just an ordinary girl
And in the evenings on Long Island
When the colors start to fade
She wears a silly yellow hat
That someone gave her when she stayed
I didn't think that she returned it
We left New York in a whirl
Time expands and then contracts
When you are spinning
In the grips of someone
Who is not an ordinary girl
When you sleep
You find your mother in the night
But she stays just out of sight
So there isn't any sweetness in the dreaming
And when you wake the morning covers you with light
And it makes you feel alright
But it's just the same hard candy
You're remembering again
You send your lover off to China
Then you wait for her to call
You put your girl up on a pedestal
Then you wait for her to fall
I put my summer's back in a letter
And I hide it from the world
All the regrets you can't forget
Are somehow pressed upon a picture
In the face of such an ordinary girl
When you sleep
You find your mother in the night
But she fades just out of sight
So there isn't any sweetness in the dreaming
And when you wake the morning showers you with light
And it makes you feel alright
But it's just the same hard candy
You're remembering again
Again 4X
It's just the same hard candy
You're remembering again
Again 4X
And it's just the same hard candy
You're remembering again
Go ask her to come around
And see me late after dark
Don't ask me to come around
Then wait to see if there's a spark.

"Cryin in the Rain"/Everly Brothers

I'll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurtin' me
I've got my pride and I know how to hide
All my sorrow and pain
I'll do my cryin' in the rain

If I wait for cloudy skies
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You'll never know that I still love you so Though the heartaches remain
I'll do my cryin' in the rain

Rain drops fallin' from heaven
Could never wash away my misery since we're not together
I pray for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

Some day when my cryin's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool but till then darling you'll
Never see me complain
I'll do my cryin' in the rain

I'll do my cryin' in the rain
I'll do my cryin' in the rain

Raindrops falling from
Heaven could never wash away my misery
Since we are not together I pray for stormy weather
to hide these tears I hope you'll never see.

Some day when my cryin's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool but till then darling you'll
Never see me complain
I'll do my cryin' in the rain

I'll do my cryin' in the rain
I'll do my cryin' in the rain

OK, here we go again. Try "Whippoorwill" by Greg Brown. Guy's got a voice like he's been gargling razor blades but I kind of like this one anyway.

If you ever leave, and I imagine you will,
It'll just be me and the whippoorwill -
Just we two, and the evening star,
If you pack your suitcase and go get in your car
And drive down the road
In the mud or the dust, over to the river,
KC or bust. If you ever go, I'll be here still,
Getting annoyed at the whippoorwill.

Getting annoyed, unable to sleep, the dust too dusty,
Or the mud too deep. I'll follow your dust,
Or I'll follow your tracks over to the hard road,
And I'll bring you back.

If you won't come back, I'll stay on your trail,
Up through heaven, or down through hell.
I'll miss this old place, I'll miss these old hills.
But I sure won't miss that whippoorwill.

You are dearer to me than the birds or the stars,
Sweeter to me than the hills and the flowers.
Long as I have you I can take anything.
So let love be home, and let the whippoorwill sing.

If I like the singer I like happy or sad. I like Nana Mouskouri, her love songs are beautiful. My sister had a couple of them played at her husband's memorial. They can bring tears to your eyes with or without a funeral.

You're my peace of mind in this crazy world.
You're everything I've tried to find, your love is a pearl.
You're my Mona Lisa, you're my rainbow skies,
and my only prayer is that you realize
you'll always be beautiful in my eyes.

The world will turn and the seasons will change,
and all the lessons we will learn will be beautiful and strange.
We'll have our fill of tears, our share of sighs.
And my only prayer is that you realize
you'll always be beautiful in my eyes.

You will always be beautiful in my eyes.
And the passing years will show
that you will always grow ever more beautiful in my eyes.

When there are lines upon my face from a lifetime of smiles,
and when the time comes to embrace for one long last while,
we can laugh about how time really flies.
We won't say goodbye 'cause true love never dies.
You'll always be beautiful in my eyes.

You will always be beautiful in my eyes.
And the passing years will show
that you will always grow ever more beautiful in my eyes.
The passing years will show that you will always grow
ever more beautiful in my eyes.

Beautiful in My Eyes by Joshua Kadison
