10 Songs that bring tears to your eyes

Recommended Posts

Almost Like A Song ~ Ronnie Milsap

Once in every life

Someone comes along

And you came to me

It was almost like a song

You were in my arms

Right where you belong

And we were so in love

It was almost like a song

January through December

We had such a perfect year

Then the flame became a dying ember

All at once you weren't here

Now my broken heart

Cries for you each night

And It's almost like a song

But it’s much too sad to write

Now my broken heart

Cries for you each night

And It's almost like a song

But it’s much too sad to write

It's too sad to write

Leaving to Stay ~ Jonny Lang

I can't believe in what I've seen

I been forsaken. I been deceived

Cast aside and left behind

I can't believe my own eyes

I been waiting for the glory

Of the coming of the Lord

I heard a lot of stories

But all my prayers have been ignored

I been waiting in the wings

Between the ocean and the shore

But this time I'm leaving to stay

I'm walking away

I seen the red sky in the morning

I seen the low tide slipping away

I do believe I'll take warning

Taking my leave to stay

I been waiting for the glory

Of the coming of the Lord

I heard a lot of stories

But all my prayers have been ignored

I been waiting in the wings

Between the ocean and the shore

But this time I'm leaving to stay

I'm walking away

[solo]

Like an angel afraid to fly

Like the last lonely rose hung on the vine

Johnny nash-Tears on my pillow. When I'm in the right mood it hits me everytime!

I can't take it

I'm so lonely, gee I need you so

I can't take it

Oh I wonder why you had to go

But baby every night I wake up crying

Tears on my pillow

Pain in my heart

You on my mind

I remember all the good times that we had before

Oh I remember

And now my heart, my very soul cries out for more

But baby, all your love for me is dying

Tears on my pillow

Pain in my heart

You on my mind

I'll always remember that day you promised to love me

You said you'd love me till the very end

And I'll never forget

I'll never forget when you walked away from me

You walked out of my life, you were my very best friend

Oh baby every night I wake up crying

Tears on my pillow

Pain in my heart

You on my mind

Yeah tears on my pillow

Pain in my heart

You on my mind

I got tears on my pillow

Pain in my heart

You on my mind

I got tears on my pillow

Pain in my heart

You on my mind

When I'm in a maudlin mood just about anything can get my lachrymal secretions going...

'Driving With The Brakes On' (Del Amitri) nearly always gets me at the line...

'It's hard to say you love someone....but it's hard to say you don't'.

Dunno why (well I do really, but I'm not telling you lot). :blush:

johnny come on you put it out there knowing it would peak curiosity, and I am one curious chick...fess up...I won't tell...I keep secrets...try me... ;)

I come from a family with a long history of maudlin sentimetality...frustrated poets, writers, painters...none of us with a whit of real talent...when we hear/see someone do something beautiful we burst into tears...it's just jealousy really. :)

Couldn't agree more!

Those strobe-like flashes of that image haunts me to this day! And I saw it at the theater back in early 70's where they, ushers, were taking people out of the theater on gurneys, literally.

My sister, 11 years older than me at the time when we saw it, was scared to check on my nephew, her son, when he was sleeping soundly at the age of three; in the dark, you see?

But when we saw that movie... both of us were scared to go into a child's room.

That's how scary that movie was . . .

Then.
