    I just bought 'Back to Bedlam' by James Blunt and 'Goodbye My Lover' had me all choked up..
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Did I disappoint you or let you down?
    Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
    'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun,
    Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.
    So I took what's mine by eternal right.
    Took your soul out into the night.
    It may be over but it won't stop there,
    I am here for you if you'd only care.
    You touched my heart you touched my soul.
    You changed my life and all my goals.
    And love is blind and that I knew when,
    My heart was blinded by you.
    I've kissed your lips and held your head.
    Shared your dreams and shared your bed.
    I know you well, I know your smell.
    I've been addicted to you.

    Goodbye my lover.
    Goodbye my friend.
    You have been the one.
    You have been the one for me.
    ~~~~~~~~~

    Sad songs really do say so much.
    Which ones bring a lump to your throat?

    "911 For Peace"

    It's in the paper every day
    You see it in the headlines and you feel so sick, yeah
    Another life leaves this world (this world) so full of hate
    But short
    Short on compassion
    Short on humanity
    Asking myself in vain, shaken by the shock,
    "do we even have a chance?"

    [Chorus: x2]
    I don't wanna die
    (I don't wanna kill)
    I don't wanna kill
    (I don't wanna die)
    We are all human.
    It's time to prove it.

    This is a plea for peace (world peace)
    To the oppressors of the world and to
    To the leaders of nations, corporate profit takers,
    to the every day citizen
    Greed, envy, fear, hate - the competition has to stop.
    When you see someone down, now's the time to pick them up
    Set our differences aside and never look back, no

    [Chorus: x2]
    I don't wanna die
    (I don't wanna kill)
    I don't wanna kill
    (I don't wanna die)
    We are all human
    It's time to prove it.

    Isn't everybody tired of the fighting? (hey, hey)
    Isn't everybody tired of the killing? (hey, hey)
    Isn't everybody tired of the dying? (hey, hey)
    Isn't everybody tired of the hatred? (hey, hey)
    Violence... (hey, hey)
    fighting... (hey)
    killing... (hey)
    dying.. (hey)
    aaaaaah!!



    [excerpt from Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech:]
    And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow,
    I still have a dream
    we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children,
    black men and white men
    Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join
    hands and sing
    "Free at last, free at last.
    Thank God Almighty, we are free at last."

    [Chorus: x2]
    I don't wanna die
    (I don't wanna kill)
    I don't wanna kill
    (I don't wanna die)
    We are all human
    It's time to prove it.

    We are all human
    It's time to prove it.
    We are all human...

    U2's Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own has got some amazingly touching lyrics.

    Bono wrote it in memory of his father but it works on so many other levels too

    Re:



    Great choice, and yes, I think it works on many levels too. Ih ave to say though that I think "One" beats it.

    Sorry to hear that, but welcome back x

    'So here I am once more, in the playground of the broken hearts. One more experience, one more entry in a diary self-penned......' says it all.

    Just bought the new Katie Melua CD..Its Brilliant, and the words to this song..get me right there!!



    "Piece By Piece"

    First of all must go
    Your scent upon my pillow
    And then I'll say goodbye
    to your whispers in my dreams.
    And then our lips will part
    In my mind and in my heart,
    Cos your kiss
    Went deeper than my skin.

    Piece by piece
    is how I'll let go of you
    Kiss by kiss
    Will leave my mind one at a time
    One at a time

    First of all must fly,
    My dreams of you and I,
    There's no point of holding on to those
    And then our ties will break,
    For your and my own sake,
    Just remember,
    This is what you chose

    Piece by piece
    Is how I'll let go of you
    Kiss by kiss,
    will leave my mind one at a time
    One at a time

    I'll shed like skin,
    Our memories of lazy days,
    And fade away the shadow of your face

    Piece by piece
    Is how I'll let go of you
    Kiss by kiss,
    Will leave my mind one at a time
    One at a time
    One at a time
    One at a time

    I found this one a bit late....

    Lyrics that get me everytime is A HOUSE IS NOT A HOME.....the Luther Vandross version makes me cry every time. Being blessed enough to see him in concert several times - - and I was in tears when he was crooning that one.

    WOW

    The love that you had in your heart is gone
    Any touch of sincerity
    Any trace of compassion
    Who hardend your heart?
    Turned it to stone?
    What made you forget?
    You were in love with somone
    Your hands don't reach out
    Your voice doesn't call me
    I know you've stopped listening
    Your eyes look straight through me
    If nights are like this
    I'd rather be alone
    Who said you could forget
    You were in love with someone?
    Tell me what hardend your heart
    Tell me what turned it to stone
    Tell me what made you forget
    You were in love with someone
    Was I wrong to forgive
    Your indiscretions?
    Should I have been more hysterical
    Less understanding?
    (NOW HERE COMES MY FAVORITE LINE)
    If your looking for a villain
    Go on and assume the role
    (THAT'S RIGHT SANG IT SANG IT )
    But don't say it's my fault
    That you're not in love with someone
    Tell me what hardend your heart
    Tell me what turned it to stone
    Tell me what made you forget
    You were in love with someone
    Tell me there's someone in your life
    I'll fight to keep you for my own
    Tell me because I really want to know
    Why you can't be in love with someone THAT'S MY GIRL TRACY CHAPMAN "THE LOVE YOU HAD" IF I'M FEELING DOWN OR MISUSED IT GOES ON REPEAT. DEE YOU GOT ME CHOKED UP JUST REMEMBERING THE PROMISE.

    Jack is sooooo right the james blunt song Goodbye My Lover is amazing but so is the album, cant take it out of the car cd player, also try Emmylou harris "two more bottles of wine" it sum's it up perfectly

    We came out west together with a common desire
    The fever we had migtha set the west coast on fire
    Two months later got trouble in mind
    My baby moved out and left me behind
    But it's all right 'cause it's midnight
    And I got two more bottles of wine

    end of a relationship and wine go so well together

    Cher
    If I Could Turn Back Time


    I don't know why I did the things I did
    I don't know why I said the things I said
    Pride's like a knife, it can cut deep inside
    Words are like weapons, they wound sometimes
    I didn't really mean to hurt you
    I didn't wanna see you go
    I know I made you cry
    But baby

    CHORUS
    If I could turn back time
    If I could find a way
    I'd take back those words that have hurt you
    And you'd stay
    If I could reach the stars
    I'd give them all to you
    Then you'd love me, love me
    Like you used to do
    If I could turn back

    My world was shattered, I was torn apart
    Like somebody took a knife
    And drove it deep in my heart
    When you walked out that door
    I swore that I didn't care
    But I lost every thing darling then and there
    Too strong to tell you I was sorry
    Too proud to tell you I was wrong
    I know that I was blind, and darling

    CHORUS

    I love this song. "She didn't have time" by Terri Clark. This is me. Ex left and I haven't had time to date until now.

    He said goodbye from the edge of the porch
    like she'd been some casual friend
    he said "your better off with out me
    i'm not what you need"
    like her momma had said about him
    he started the car
    pulled out of the drive
    didn't waste any time lookin' back
    she watched him go
    thinkin' even a stranger
    would show more compassion than that

    she could've cried but she didn't have time
    she had a baby to feed
    a pink blanket to find
    to rock their little one to sleep
    she could've laid in bed for hours
    giving misery the power
    but she didn't have time

    she got a sitter, she got a job
    'cause she had a promise to keep
    her day was a factory and evening survival
    at night was exhaustion and sleep
    sometimes she felt life was passing her by
    and watching was all she could do
    her friends said "you gotta get outta the house
    and maybe you'll meet someone new"

    she could've tried
    but she didn't have time
    she had a five year old to feed
    she had ballet class, piano lessons
    and t-ball little league
    she could've laid awake for hours
    giving lonely nights the power
    but she didn't have the time

    not time where would she find the time
    to trust a man again
    not time for that flat tire
    a crowded parking lot and then
    not time to just have coffee with the man
    who got her tired fixed
    she was thinking gosh he's handsome
    when he asked do you have kids

    she could've lied
    but she didnt have time
    all she said was "she's five"
    he said "i saw the car seat I love kids
    does she have your eyes?"
    and they sat and talked for hours
    giving destiny it's power
    she could've been afraid
    to fall in love that night
    but she didn't have time

    she could've been afraid
    to fall in love that night
    but she didn't have time
