Songs to ease the pain


Recommended Posts

As you know, I'm going through a rough patch at the moment, coming to terms with not seeing the one person I would love to see...

Most people have been here, and alot of you will have a song which the lyrics touch that one part of you, and comfort you while the songs playing. Post them here, and I'm going to give them all a listen...

Heres one of mine, whihc I've only heard in the last couple of days:

"Heal Over"

KT Tunstall

It isn?t very difficult to see why

You are the way you are

Doesn?t take a genius to realise

That sometimes life is hard

It?s gonna take time

But you?ll just have to wait

You?re gonna be fine

But in the meantime

Come over here lady

Let me wipe your tears away

Come a little nearer baby

Coz you?ll heal over

Heal over

Heal over someday

And I don?t wanna hear you tell yourself

That these feelings are in the past

You know it doesn?t mean they?re off the shelf

Because pain?s built to last

Everybody sails alone

But we can travel side by side

Even if you fail

You know that noone really minds

Come over here lady

Don?t hold on but don?t let go

I know it?s so hard

You?ve got to try to trust yourself

I know it?s so hard, so hard

Come over here lady

Let me wipe your tears away

Come a little nearer baby

Coz you?ll heal over, heal over, heal over someday

You Gotta Be

Des'ree

Listen as your day unfolds

Challenge what the future holds

Try and keep your head up to the sky

Lovers, they may cause you tears

Go ahead release your fears

Stand up and be counted

Don't be ashamed to cry

You gotta be

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold

You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard

You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger

You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm

You gotta stay together

All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Herald what your mother said

Readin' the books your father read

Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time

Some may have more cash than you

Others take a different view

my oh my heh, hey..(repeat l)

Don't ask no questions, it goes on without you

Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace

The world keeps on spinning

You can't stop it, if you try to

This time it's danger staring you in the face

oh oh oh

Remember (rpt 2)

My oh my heh, hey, hey

Be Strong Now

James Iha

little darling belle with such a fragile shell

in the powerful way that love seems to make her all regret it now

and if she'd only say what's wrong- she can't go on

you've got to be strong now

and if I come and hold you now

you'll be safe and sound

little lonely face that no one ever sees

you see the thing she believes is life is bittersweet if she'd

open up to me, and its the only thing she dreams,

you gotta believe

you've got to be strong now

and if I come and hold you now

you've got to be strong now

if I hold you now

if I hold you now

if I hold you now

ooh god if I could change a thing tonight we won't

be lonely, ooh god if I could change a thing,

why does it have to be this way

you've got to be strong now

and if i come and hold you now

you've got to be strong now

if i hold you now

if i hold you now

This one is more from a guys point of view, but the words can be altered:

I'll be alright

Per Gessle

It you ever leave me

If you ever let me down

If you ever tell me

You don't want my love around

I'll be alright

You gave me the best years of my life

And a girl like you is very hard to find

So everything will be alright

People change, I know it

It's a most natural thing

And if you want to show it

You don't owe me anything

I'll be alright

I had the moments of my life

All I need is a little time to cry

Then everything will be alright

Take it easy, baby

I wouldn't change a thing (anything about it)

After all, honey

I don't regret anything

I'll be alright

You gave me the finest things in life

And a love like that is very hard to find

So everything will be alright

You gave me the best years of my life

A love like that is very hard to find

So everything will be alright.

And a *big* hug for you too Foxy.

This one has been my mantra more than once...

I Will Survive

(Gloria Gaynor)

First I was afraid

I was petrified

Kept thinking I could never live

without you by my side

But I spent so many nights

thinking how you did me wrong

I grew strong

I learned how to carry on

and so you're back

from outer space

I just walked in to find you here

with that sad look upon your face

I should have changed my stupid lock

I should have made you leave your key

If I had known for just one second

you'd be back to bother me

Go on now go walk out the door

just turn around now

'cause you're not welcome anymore

weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye

you think I'd crumble

you think I'd lay down and die

Oh no, not I

I will survive

as long as i know how to love

I know I will stay alive

I've got all my life to live

I've got all my love to give

and I'll survive

I will survive

It took all the strength I had

not to fall apart

kept trying hard to mend

the pieces of my broken heart

and I spent oh so many nights

just feeling sorry for myself

I used to cry

Now I hold my head up high

and you see me

somebody new

I'm not that chained up little person

still in love with you

and so you felt like dropping in

and just expect me to be free

now I'm saving all my loving

for someone who's loving me

Compulsion

Charms in limited supply

And refusing to stretch

That indefinable nothing

Somehow keeps pushing you

Chorus:

Finding the right words

Can be a problem

How many times must it be said

There's no plan

It had to happen

Got to move on sometime

And It's about time

by putting one foot in front of another

And repeating the process

Cross over the street

You're free to change your mind

Strength through diversity

Couldn't have put it more plainly

Got to move on sometime

Charms in limited supply

Under threat of extinction

That indefinable nothing

Somehow motivates You

(chorus)

:beatnik:

Im afraid my ones are comforting in the sense that they are sad, so i feel like someone else is as sad as i am.

Miner at the dial-a-view-grandaddy (when I'm lonely)

found your house and I saw your car

But I've no idea where you are from the Dial-a-view

Tire scraps on the federal roads

Look like crash landed crows from the Dial-a-view

Hello welcome to dial-a-view to locate the area in which you wish to observe

You must program in the longitude and the latitude

For a closer more detailed picture use either the zoom or the micro-zoom controls

Good luck

I dream at night of going home someday

Somewhere so far away

So dream, alright

I know it's gonna take some time

I'm going home someday

Fifteen years is almost done

And I don't recognize anyone

From the Dial-a-view.

My home, my friends and you

I watched them fade

But what can I do

From the Dial-a-view

Hello welcome to dial-a-view to locate the area in which you wish to observe

You must program in the longitude and the latitude

For a closer more detailed picture use either the zoom or the micro-zoom controls

Good luck

I dream at night of going home someday

Somewhere so far away

So dream, alright

I know it's gonna take some time

I'm going home someday.

I dream at night of going home someday

Somewhere so far away

So dream, alright

I know it's gonna take some time

I'm going home someday.

I dream at night of going home someday

Somewhere so far away

So dream, alright

I know it's gonna take some time

I'm going home someday.

I dream

fake plastic trees-radiohead (when my friends left for uni in the states

Her Green plastic watering can

For her fake chinese rubber plant

In fake plastic earth.

That she bought from a rubber man

In a town full of rubber plans.

Just to get rid of itself.

And It Wears Her Out, it wears her out

It wears her out, it wears her out.

She lives with a broken man

A cracked polystyrene man

Who just crumbles and burns.

He used to do surgery

For girls in the eighties

But gravity always wins.

And It Wears Him Out, it wears him out

It wears him out, it wears him out.

She looks like the real thing

She tastes like the real thing

My Fake Plastic Love.

But I can't help the feeling

I could blow through the ceiling

If I just turn and run

And It Wears Me Out, it wears me out

It wears me out, it wears me out.

And if I could BE who you wanted

If I could BE who you wanted,

All the time, all the time, ohhh... ohh...

lovesong (when i miss my boyfriend)

Whenever I?m alone with you you make me feel

Like I am home again whenever I?m alone with

You you make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I?m alone with you you make me feel

Like I am young again whenever I?m alone with

You you make me feel like I am fun again

However far away I will always love you however

Long I stay I will always love you whatever

Words I say I will always love you I will always

Love you

Whenever I?m alone with you you make me feel

Like I am free again whenever I?m alone with

You you make me feel like I am clean again

However far away I will always love you however

Long I stay I will always love you whatever

Words I say I will always love you I will always

Love you

nothing came out-the modly peaches (again, when Im lonely and when i feel ugly)

Just because I don't say anything,

Doesn't mean I don't like you.

I open my mouth and I tried and I tried.

But no words came out.

Without 40 oz. of social skills,

I'm just an ass in the crack of humanity.

I'm just a huge manitee.

A huge manitee.

And besides you're probably holding hands

With some skinny, pretty girl that likes to

Talk about bands.

And all I wanna do is ride bikes with you

And stay up late and watch cartoons.

Ducktails, Shirtails, Tail Spin, Sailor Moon, GI Joe, Robotech, Ron Jeremy, Schmoo..

I wanna watch cartons with you.

Josie and the Pussycats and Scooby-doo,

I want you to watch cartoons with me.

He-Man, Voltron, and Hong Kong Phooey

I tried to ask you to your face

But no words came out.

Put on my hood and walked away,

That doesn't mean I don't like you.

And besides you're probably holding hands

With some skinny, pretty girl that likes to

Talk about bands.

And all I wanna do is ride bikes with you

And stay up late

And maybe spoon.

Just because I don't say anything

Doesn't mean I don't like you.

..no..

I opened my mouth and I tried and i tried.

And besides you're probably holding hands

With some skinny, pretty girl that likes to

Talk about bands.

And all I wanna do is ride bikes with you

And stay up late and watch cartoons.

glory box-portishead (when Im lonely)

I'm so tired, of playing

Playing with this bow and arrow

Gonna give my heart away

Leave it to the other girls to play

For I've been a temptress too long

Just. .

Give me a reason to love you

Give me a reason to be ee, a woman

I just wanna be a woman

From this time, unchained

We're all looking at a different picture

Thru this new frame of mind

A thousand flowers could bloom

Move over, and give us some room

Give me a reason to love you

Give me a reason to be ee, a woman

I just wanna be a woman

[iNSTRUMENTAL]

So don't you stop, being a man

Just take a little look from our side when you can

Sow a little tenderness

No matter if you cry

Give me a reason to love you

Give me a reason to be ee, a woman

Its all I wanna be is all woman

For this is the beginning of forever and ever

Its time to move over... ...

I´ve been looking for the lyrics of "Say goodbye to little Jo", Steve Forbert, but I couldn´t find them... Foxy, you´ll love this song... I´ll try to find it tomorrow or I´ll write down the lyrics as I guess I must know it by heart... anyway, if somebody´s got these lyrics, please, post them!

And as Rachel says, most of the times we listen to sad songs to see we´re not the ones going through that, so my "Divorces Tape" has "Drive" (Cars), "Breaking up is hard to do" (Neil Sedaka) and things like that...

Wow, I wish I could find that song, I´d send it to you by e-mail... :P

edna I'll look for it now.

'Drive' by the Cars is a beautiful song. It reminds me totally of a bloke at work I had a very special night with after months of flirting and trying not to see each other as work relationships complicate things, we gave in, and he stayed with me overnight on my birthday as a surprise. Next morning I woke and he was gone, the next week at work he said it could never be. I was devastated for about 6 months seeing him at work :(

"Name" by Goo Goo Dolls-

And even though the moment passed me by

I still can't turn away

Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose

Got tossed along the way

And letters that you never meant to send

Get lost or thrown away

And now we're grown up orphans

That never knew their names

We don't belong to no-one

That's a shame

But you could hide beside me

Maybe for a while

And I won't tell no one your name

Yeah, I won't tell em your name

Scars are souvenirs you never lose

The past is never far

Did you lose yourself somewhere out there

Did you get to be a star

Don't it make you sad to know that life

Is more than who we are

You grew up way too fast

Now there's nothing to believe

Reruns all become our history

A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio

And I won't tell no one your name

Yeah, I won't tell em your name

I think about you all the time

But I don't need the same

It's lonely where you are come back down

And I won't tell em your name

"Big Machine" by Goo Goo Dolls (oy, i love them!)

Ecstacy is all you need

Living in the big machine now

Oh, you're so vain

Now your world is way too fast

Nothin's real and nothing lasts

And I'm aware

I'm in love but you don't care

Turn your anger into lust

I'm still here, but you don't trust at all

And I'll be waiting

Love and sex and loneliness

Take what's yours and leave the rest

So I'll survive

God, it's good to be alive

[Chorus]

I'm torn in pieces

I'm blind and waiting for

My heart is reeling

I'm blind and waiting for you

Still in love with all your sins

Where you stop and I begin

And I'll - I'll be waitin'

Livin' like a house on fire

What you fear is your desire

It's hard to deal

I still love the way you feel

Now this angry little girl

Drownin in this petty world

And I'm who you run to

Swallow all your bitter pills

That's what makes you beautiful

You're all or not

I don't need what you ain't got

[Chorus]

I'm blind and waiting for you

I'm blind and waiting for you

No, I can't believe it's coming true

God, it's good to be alive

I'm still here and waitin' for you

No I can't believe it's coming true

I'm blind and waiting for you

"Spin" by Lifehouse

I'd rather chase your shadow all my life

Than be afraid of my own

I'd rather be with you

I'd rather not know

Where I'll be than

Be alone and convinced that I know

And the world keeps spinning round

My world's upside down

And I-I wouldn't change a thing

I've got nothing else to lose

I lost it all when I found you

And I-I wouldn't change a thing

No, you and I-I wouldn't change a thing

Everything I know has let me down

So I will just let go

Let you turn me inside out

Cause I know I'm not sure

About anything

But you wouldn't have it any other way

And the world keeps spinning round

My world's upside down

And I-I wouldn't change a thing

I've got nothing else to lose

I lost it all when I found you

And I-I wouldn't change a thing

No, you and I-I wouldn't change a thing

Spinning, turning, watching, burning

All my life has found its meaning

Walking, crawling, climbing, falling

All my life has found its meaning

You and I-I wouldn't change a thing

No, you and I-I wouldn't change a thing

And the world keeps spinning round

My world's upside down

And I-I wouldn't change a thing

I've got nothing else to lose

I lost it all when I found you

And I-I wouldn't change a thing

No, you and I-I wouldn't change a thing

No, you and I-I wouldn't change a thing

"Quasimodo" by Lifehouse

you can be right

and I'll be real

honesty won't be a pain that you'll have to feel

cause I don't need your approval

to find my worth

I'm trapped inside of my own mind

afraid to open my eyes cause of what I'd find and I

don't want to live like this anymore

there goes my pain

there goes my chains

did you see them falling

because this feeling

that has no meaning

there goes the world

off of my shoulders

there goes the world

off of my back

there it goes

does it scare you that I can

be something different than you

would it make you feel more comfortable if I wasn't

you can't control me

and you can't take away from me who I am

there goes my pain

there goes my chains

did you see them falling

because this feeling

that has no meaning

there goes the world

off of my shoulders

there goes the world

off of my back

you can't change me

you can't break me

there goes the world

off of my shoulders

there goes the world

off of my back

have you ever felt

like your only comfort was your cage

you're not alone

I've felt the same as you

have you ever felt

like your secrets give you away

you're not alone

I've been there too

cause everyone is looking

and everyone is laughing but I think

everyone feels the same

everybody wants to feel ok

everybody wants to

everybody wants to feel

there goes my pain

there goes my chains

did you see them falling

because this feeling

that has no meaning

there goes the world

off of my shoulders

there goes the world

off of my back

cause I don't want it

I don't want it

you can't change me

you can't break me

there goes the world

off of my shoulders

there goes the world

off of my back

there it goes

"Bed of Lies" by Matchbox 20

No I would not sleep in this bed of lies

So toss me out and turn in

And there'll be no rest for these tired eyes

I'm marking it down to learning

I am

Don't think that I can take another empty moment

Don't think that I can fake another hollow smile

It's not enough just to be sorry

Don't think that I could take another talk about it

Just like me you got needs

And they're only a whisper away

And we softly surrender

To these lives that we've tendered away

No I would not sleep in this bed of lies

So toss me out and turn in

And there'll be no rest for these tired eyes

I'm marking it down to learning

I am

Don't wanna be the one who turns the whole thing over

Don't wanna be somewhere where I just don't belong

Where it's not enough just be sorry

Don't you know I feel the darkness closing in

Tried to be more than me

And I gave till it all went away

And we've only surrendered

To the worst part of these winters we've made

No I would not sleep in this bed of lies

So toss me out and turn in

And there'll be no rest for these tired eyes

I'm marking it down to learning

I am

I am all that I'll ever be

When you - lay your hands

Over me but don't go weak on me now

I know that it's weak

But God help me I need this

I will not sleep in this bed of lies

So toss me out and turn in

And there'll be no rest for these tired eyes

I'm marking it down to learning

I'm marking it down to learning

'Cause I am

"Send the Pain Below" by Chevelle

I liked

Having hurt

So send the pain below

Where I need it

You used to beg me

To take

Care of things

And smile at the thoughts

Of me failing

But long before

Having hurt

I?d send the pain below

I?d send the pain below

Much like suffocating

Much like suffocating

Much like suffocating (I?d send the pain below)

Much like suffocating (I?d send the pain below)

You used to run me away

All while laughing

Then cry about that fact

?Till I returned.

But long before

Having hurt

I?d send the pain below

I?d send the pain below.

Much like suffocating

Much like suffocating

Much like suffocating (I?d send the pain below)

Much like suffocating (I?d send the pain below)

Much like suffocating

I can?t feel my chest

Need more,

Drop down,

Closing in.

I can?t feel my chest

Drop down

I liked

Having hurt

So send the pain below,

So send the pain below (Much like suffocating)

So send the pain below (Much like suffocating)

So send the pain below (Much like suffocating)

So send the pain below (Much like suffocating)

So send the pain below.

much of anything done by Long View (this is a truly amazing band, in case you don't know of them)

"On a High" by Duncan Sheik (such an addicting song, it's sort of my empowerment song)

"Colorblind" by Counting Crows

I am colorblind

Coffee black and egg white

Pull me out from inside

I am ready

I am ready

I am ready

I am

Taffy stuck, tongue tied

Stuttered shook and uptight

Pull me out from inside

I am ready

I am ready

I am ready

I am...fine

I am covered in skin

No one gets to come in

Pull me out from inside

I am folded, and unfolded, and unfolding

I am

colorblind

Coffee black and egg white

Pull me out from inside

I am ready

I am ready

I am ready

I am...fine

I am.... fine

I am fine

those are just a few...

I'm the same way. The times I've had to get over someone, I didn't listen to songs with a theme of getting over or overcoming, but rather kept an overall sad tone. Clan Of Xymox and Visage in a furious loop! :puppyeyes:

i can't stand uplifting songs when I'm sad, although its not the best of emotional states to be in, I think I need to go through it, its good to know you can feel!

As you know, I'm going through a rough patch at the moment, coming to terms with not seeing the one person I would love to see...

Benita, if you can find it give a listen to Randy Crawford's "Shine". That "person" may be right there with you. I've been trying to find the lyrics. I'll keep trying.

I got an old album by Tracey Ullman, she sings "I can´t breakaway", "They never heard of love" among other oldies... that´s a record I´ve used a lot to get me up... and it worked! So if it worked for me maybe it´ll work for others...

there are only two songs i listen to when i'm depressed or angry or feeling volatile!

Everybody Hurts - REM (aint it obvious!)

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,

When you?re sure you?ve had enough of this life, well hang on

Don?t let yourself go, everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong. now it?s time to sing along

When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)

If you feel like letting go, (hold on)

When you think you?ve had too much of this life, well hang on

?cause everybody hurts. take comfort in your friends

Everybody hurts. don?t throw your hand. oh, no. don?t throw your hand

If you feel like you?re alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If you?re on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,

When you think you?ve had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes,

Everybody cries. and everybody hurts sometimes

And everybody hurts sometimes. so, hold on, hold on

Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

Everybody hurts. you are not alone

and Don't Cry - Gn'R (even though i'm not a huge fan of theirs i have 4 of their albums!)

Talk to me softly

There's something in your eyes

Don't hang your head in sorrow

And please don't cry

I know how you feel inside I've

I've been there before

Somethin's changin' inside you

And don't you know

Don't you cry tonight

I still love you baby

Don't you cry tonight

Don't you cry tonight

There's a heaven above you baby

And don't you cry tonight

Give me a whisper

And give me a sigh

Give me a kiss before you

tell me goodbye

Don't you take it so hard now

And please don't take it so bad

I'll still be thinkin' of you

And the times we had...baby

And don't you cry tonight

Don't you cry tonight

Don't you cry tonight

There's a heaven above you baby

And don't you cry tonight

And please remember that I never lied

And please remember

how I felt inside now honey

You gotta make it your own way

But you'll be alright now sugar

You'll feel better tomorrow

Come the morning light now baby

And don't you cry tonight

An don't you cry tonight

An don't you cry tonight

There's a heaven above you baby

And don't you cry

Don't you ever cry

Don't you cry tonight

Baby maybe someday

Don't you cry

Don't you ever cry

Don't you cry

Tonight
