Need Songs about Burning for Love & Second Chances

Recommended Posts

I just remebered... a friend of mine needed to explain to her ex that he couldn´t go on like this... he send her a tape with music and the song that made her really laugh and reconsider was this one:

Lovesick Blues

I've got a feelin' called the blues

Oh Lord, since my baby said good bye

I'd don't know what I'm gonna do

All I do is sit and sigh

Oh, Lord the last long day she said goodbye

Well Oh lord I thought I would cry

She'll do me she'll do you

She's got that kinda lovin'

Lord I love to hear her

When she calls me sweet daddy

Such a beautiful dream

I hate to think it´s all over

I lost my heart it seems

I've grown so used to you somehow

And I'm nobody´s sugar daddy now

And I´m lonesome

I've got the lovesick blues

Well I'm in love

I'm in love with a beautifull gal

Thats what´s the matter with me

I'm in love,

I'm in love with a beautifull gal

But she don't care about me

Lord I've tried and tried

To keep her satisfied

But she just wouldn´t stay

And now that she's leavin'

This is all I say

I've got a feelin' called the blues

Oh Lord, since my baby said goodbye

Lord I don´t know what to do

All I do is sit and sigh

That last long day she said goodbye

Oh Lord, I thought I would cry

she'll do me, she'll do you

She's got that kind of lovin'

Lord I love to hear her when she calls me sweet daddy

Such a beautiful dream

I hate to think it´s all over

I lost my heart it seems

I´ve grown so used to you somehow

And I'm nobodys sugar daddy now

And I´m lonesome

I've got the love sick blues

Yeah I´m lonesome

i've got the love sick blues

version: Arlo Guthrie. It worked! Girls are very sensitive to this kind of things.

My suggestion is "Till the next time we say goodbye" Rolling Stones.

Edna suggested a popular Hank Williams cut with

Lovesick Blues

I'll follow with another made famous by Hank Williams('51) and Linda Ronstadt('74)-

I Can't Help It (If I'm Still in Love With You)

also

Elvis - Are You Lonesome Tonight?

and

Edna mentioned Sinatra... :)

That Old Feeling

maybe some Otis Redding -

I've Been Lovin' You Too Long

Jerry Butler -

Never Give You Up

on the blues side -

Jimmy Johnson

When My First Wife Quit Me

The Persuasions -

It's You That I Need

:elvis: Elvis - Teddy Bear

Bluesboy, "I´ve been loving you too long" is the top of all the sugestions. I´m nearly crying just remembering it (mainly coz I have all my records packed and I can´t listen to most of my music right now!!!) Tina Turner, Rolling Stones and specially, of course, Otis Redding made the best covers.

Track Seven on 'Grace'. It's called 'Lover, You Should've Come Over'

Looking out the door I see the rain fall upon the funeral mourners

Parading in a wake of sad relations as their shoes fill up with water

Oh maybe I'm too young to keep good love from going wrong

But tonight you're on my mind so let me know

Broken down and hungry for your love with no way to feed it

Where are you tonight, child you know how much I need it

Too young to hold on and too old to just break free and run

Sometimes a man gets carried away when he feels like he should be having his fun

Much too blind to see the damage he's done

Sometimes a man must awake to find that really he has no-one

So I wait for you and I burn

Will I ever see your sweet return

Oh will I ever learn

Oh, lover you should've come over,

Cos it's not too late.

Lonely is the room, the bed is made, the open window lets the rain in,

Burning in the corner is the only one who dreams he had you with him.

My body turns and yearns for a sleep that won't ever come.

Oh it's never over, My kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder

It's never over, All my riches for her smiles when I slept so soft against her.

It's never over, All my blood for the sweetness of her laughter.

It's never over, She's the tear that hangs inside my soul forever.

Oh but maybe I'm just too young to keep good love from going wrong.

Oh, lover, you should've come over.

Yes, I feel too young to hold on

I'm much too old to break free and run

Too deaf, dumb and blind to see the damage I've done

Sweet lover, you should've come over

And lover I wait for you.

Lover, you should've come over

Cos it's not too late.

You have to hear the way he sings it, with such feeling and passion. His voice is just dripping with emotion and the arrangement is gorgeous.

Btw I don't know anything about your situation but I always find it's better to break free of someone who makes you feel so low.

Good luck and best wishes to you, and don't forget to listen to some happy songs too!
