Cry, baby, cry...

In the Ghetto

As the snow flies

On a cold and gray chicago mornin

A poor little baby child is born

In the ghetto

And his mama cries

cause if theres one thing that she dont need

Its another hungry mouth to feed

In the ghetto

People, dont you understand

The child needs a helping hand

Or hell grow to be an angry young man some day

Take a look at you and me,

Are we too blind to see,

Do we simply turn our heads

And look the other way

Well the world turns

And a hungry little boy with a runny nose

Plays in the street as the cold wind blows

In the ghetto

And his hunger burns

So he starts to roam the streets at night

And he learns how to steal

And he learns how to fight

In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation

A young man breaks away

He buys a gun, steals a car,

Tries to run, but he dont get far

And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers round an angry young man

Face down on the street with a gun in his hand

In the ghetto

As her young man dies,

On a cold and gray chicago mornin,

Another little baby child is born

In the ghetto

Feed The Birds - Julie Andrews. I believe this was Walt Disney's favourite song from any Disney movie.

I love this song, CanAm! My best friend of over 25 years and I were obsessed with "Mary Poppins". Every so often, she'll call me and sing "Feed the Birds" on my answering machine. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to come home from a long day and hear her warbling off-key: "Feed the birds, tuppence a bag, tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag..." :grin:

#1 Saddest song I've ever heard -

Hollie Smith - "Fallen Flowers"

lyrics:

If I could roll back the years

If I could see

through these tears

If I could face all of my fears

And, if I could live my life again

And, if I could life, again

If I culd call

the world my friend

If I could write

the story's end...I would

I'd live a thousand years of pain

Just to hold you once...again.

Hollie Smith sings in duet with Steve McDonald. An awesome ethereal and gorgeous song. I think it is THE saddest song I've ever heard. I share this one often. It is written about a young fallen soldier and how he wishes to be with his mom again and vice versa. I tear up every time.

The rest aren't necessarily in order...

#2 Alan Parsons Project - "Old and Wise"

lyrics:

And to those I left behind

I wanted you to Know

You've always shared my deepest thoughts

You follow where I go

#3 Kate Bush - "This Woman's Work"

lyrics:

I should be crying

But I just can't let it show

I should be hoping

But I can't stop thinking

All the things I should've said

That I never said

All the things we should of done

That we never did

All the things I should've given

But I didn't

Oh darling make it go

Make it go away

#4 William's Brothers - "Can't Cry Hard Enough"

lyrics:

I'm gonna live my life

like every days' the last

without a simple goodbye it all goes by so fast

and now that you're gone I can't cry heard enough

I can't cry hard enough

for you to hear me now

#5 Pirates of the Mississippi - "Feed Jake"

lyrics:

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.

If I die before I wake, feed Jake, he's been a good dog,

My best friend right through it all,

if I die before I wake,

Feed Jake

#6 Johnny Cash - "Hurt"

Too well-known for lyrics. *sniff*

#7 Chris Isaak - "Pretty Paper" (cover of Roy Orbison's tune)

lyrics:

Crowded street, busy feet hustle by him

Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh

There he sits all alone on the sidewalk

He's just hoping he won't pass him by

Should I stop? Better not, much too busy

I'm in a hurry, my how time does fly

And in the distance the ringing of laughter

And in the midst of the laughter he cries

#8 Steve McDonald - "I Will Return"

lyrics:

And I will die in your arms

And all my sorrow, will be gone.

And all the things in my life,

I held so dear, must leave me now.

But I will live on

Long, after the silence,

Ends the song.

#9 Diamond Rio - "You're Gone"

lyrics:

Now I know God has His reasons

But sometimes it's hard to see them

When I awake and find that you're not there

You found hope in hopeless

You made crazy sane

You became the missing link

That helped me break my chains

And I bless the day I met you

And I thank God that He let you

Lay beside me for a moment that lives on

And the good news is I'm better

For the time we spent together

And the bad news is you're gone

The bad news is you're gone

#10 Jeff Carson - "The Car"

lyrics:

Boy I'd love to have that car,

I whispered to my dad.

I always heard a mustang flies.

We could fix it up, and make it new again

all it needs is just a little time

daddy's hardly ever home, since mama passed away

he's always workin over time

i know that he cannot afford to buy that car

even though, he'd love to make it mine

Its not the car that I'm needin

just the chance to be with him

I know once these days roll past us,

they will never come again.

so little time, we spend way to much apart

there will always be a part of us

together in that car

Finally I let go of that dream,

the time we could have shared.

It was a distant memory,

til last fall a call came

sayin dad was gone

could I come quick, he left a note for me.

Buried Dad right next to Ma

up on Coleys ridge

there I said my last "goodbye"

I opened up the note, and found a set a keys

here's your car son, I hope it flies

Its not the car that I'm needin

its the chance to be with you

I hope you'll understand I always did

the best that I could do

so little time, we spent way to much apart

there will always be a part of us....

together in that car

Some instrumentals that make me tear up:

Bruce Rowland - "Hero To A Nation"

Bruce Rowland wrote the score to my all-time favorite movie, Phar Lap about a famous Aussie racehorse. I've loved that movie since I was 7 years old (when the movie came out). This music is gorgeous and always invokes the emotions the end of the film gives. It's a tribute song. Bruce also wrote the score for the movie Man From Snowy River - another horse movie favorite.

Mychael Danna & Jeff Danna - "The Child Deirdre"

A melancholy celtic tune.

ERA - "Sombre Day" & "I Believe"

Here are two somber instrumentals by one of my very favorite artists. Both are gorgeous haunting tunes.

Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard - "Now We Are Free"

Since it's not in English, I put it in the instrumentals. This Epic song from the movie Gladiator moves me every time.

Beautiful In My Eyes ~ Joshua Kadison

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.

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.

Everytime I catch it on the radio, it gets some tears. Just touching song and at one time a guy I was dating would sing it to me.
