    Default Special Songs

    Anyone who would like to share a special song:

    I found that after Richard's death there were songs that I had to listen to. They made me feel, while I had a hard time feeling even pain (because I basically shoved it all away). And even after these many months, if I listen to a certain song the feelings will come back to me.

    Songwriter : POE

    Her CD "Haunted" was in tribute to her father who had just passed away. Maybe that's why I feel for this CD so much.

    Haunted

    Come here

    Pretty please
    Can you tell me where are you?
    You Won’t you say something?
    I need to get my bearings
    Almost,
    Memories, shadows keep on changing
    And I’m haunted
    By the lives that I have loved
    Connections I have hated
    Haunted
    By the lies that wove the web
    Inside my haunted hell


    Don’t cry

    There’s always a way
    Here in November in this house of leaves I frame
    Please, I know it’s hard to believe
    See a perfect forest through so many splintered trees
    You and me,
    And these shadows keep on changing
    And I’m haunted
    By the lives that I have loved
    Connections I have hated
    Haunted
    By the promises I made
    And others I have broken

    I’m haunted
    By the lies that wove the web
    Inside my haunted hell

    Please…
    I’ll always want you
    I’ll always need you
    I’ll always love you
    I will always miss you

    Come here
    Though I won’t say please
    One more look at the ghost before I make it leave
    Come here
    I got the pieces here
    Time to gather up the splinters
    And build a casket for my tears

    I’m haunted
    By the lives that I have loved

    I’m haunted
    By the hallways in this dining room
    The echoes of me and you
    Voices that can’t be still

    Spanish Doll

    This place seems so unfamiliar
    When I know it well
    I think I use to belong here
    But the only way that I can tell
    Is that I miss you still
    And I cannot find you here
    You left me tattered and torn
    Just like that sweet Spanish Doll

    I went down to the alleyway
    And found that you were gone
    Left no word no message
    I still don’t know
    Exactly what went wrong
    Now no matter where I go
    I always seem to return
    The way you left me tattered and torn
    Just like that sweet Spanish Doll

    The memory …. Letting go……
    Beauty guard it, and never sold
    I keep it with me wherever I go
    And I love you still
    No matter how the story will unfold
    Know I always will
    A part of you here, a souvenir

    Spanish Doll

    A stranger in this world without you
    Is all that I can ever be
    All that I know that’s pure and clear
    You left it with me here
    In this souvenir

    WOW! I never heard of the songwriter and now I want to hear that song.

    I was told by many people that I should hear My Imortal and I finally did not that long ago....it's a very great song and I can see why people were telling me to listen to it.

    Another one is Here Without You from 3Doors down.

    A 3rd one is Dance With My Father but Luther Vandross.

    There is one more that Reba just came out with and it's called He gets that from me. My MIL told me about it and she said it really made her cry and that I needed to hear it. Well I was taking a bath the other day and since I can see my TV from there the TV caught my eye and it was that song. It totally reminds me of my son and I. The boy is about my sons age and it even shows her at the cemetary at the end taking the dad flowers with the son.

    My BIL had My Imortal played at DH's memorial service. I was a little annoied because I really liked that song before the service.
    One of James' favorite songs was "The Dance" by Garth Brooks. We had a small gathering of close friends back at our house after the main reception. We played The Dance there for them and drank a toast to James.
    I was driving in my car the first time I heard the new Reba song. I had to change the station because I could tell it was going to make me cry.

    The first song we danced to at our wedding was Nat King Cole's "Unforgettable".
