Songs About Sacrifice

Recommended Posts

Thinking of starting a category for Songs About Sacrifice. What got me thinking about it is "The Price" by Twisted Sister, which spells it out:

It's the price we gotta pay
And all the games we gotta play
Makes me wonder if it's worth it to carry on

Any others you can think of? :spiky:

Midnight Train To Georgia Gladys Knight & The Pips

He kept dreamin' (dreamin')
That someday he'd be a star
A super star, but he didn't get far
But he sure found out the hard way
That dreams don't always come true
So he pawned all his hopes
And he even sold his old car
Bought a one way ticket back
To the life he once knew
Oh yes he did
He said he would

 

When A Man Loves A Woman ~ Percy Sledge

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comfort
Sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way it ought to be

 

 

The Sacrifice ~ Dolly Parton

Sacrifice ~ Elton John

You sheltered me from harm

Kept me warm, kept me warm
You gave my life to me
Set me free, set me free
The finest years I ever knew
Were all the years I had with you

And I would give anything I own
Give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything I own
Just to have you back again

You taught me how to love
What it's of, what it's of
You never said too much 
But still you showed the way
And I knew from watching you
Nobody else could ever know
The part of me that can't let go

And I would give anything I own
Give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything I own
Just to have you back again

Is there someone you know
You're loving them so
But taking them all for granted
You may lose them one day
Someone takes them away
And they don't hear the words you long to say

I would give anything I own
Give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything I ownJust to have you back again
Just to touch you once again
