    Songs that describe how I'm feeling

    Hello,

    I was looking for the original thread that listed songs about how people were feeling. I just watched that movie Magnolia tonight and it has this great song by Aimee Mann (from the band 'til Tuesday) called "Wise Up".

    If it's a little too negative, I'll understand if it's deleted but it just seems to sum things up for me - right now. Here goes:

    Artist: Aimee Mann
    Song: Wise Up

    It's not
    What you thought
    When you first began it
    You got
    What you want
    Now you can hardly stand it though,
    By now you know
    It's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    'Til you wise up

    You're sure
    There's a cure
    And you have finally found it
    You think
    One drink
    Will shrink you 'til you're underground
    And living down
    But it's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    'Til you wise up

    Prepare a list of what you need
    Before you sign away the deed
    'Cause it's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    'Til you wise up
    No, it's not going to stop
    'Til you wise up
    No, it's not going to stop
    So just...give up

    good song, we sometimes do need to just wise up. but what we don't need to do is give up you are stronger than you think. we all are.

    A song that has always been my motto, I will survive, I think Gloria Gainer? not sure of author etc.. I just loved the song and listened to them, not paying too much attention to the artists. Unless tons of their songs struck me.

    Bridge over troubled waters was and is one close to my heart.

    Goes back to my high school sweetheart. We broke up, that was our song after, we were very good friends and figured one day we would get back together.

    We dated again not long before he died in an accidental drowning. His Dad just passed away, and I have kept in touch with his family. I didn't go to the funeral for either, only viewings. IF I went to Dad S's funeral, I would not have been able to handle seeing Kens grave. I have yet to go and visit it. I really need to do this.

    I dont' dream often due to the fibromyalgia, I rarely get into that deep sleep stage. The past few days my pain levels have been horrid, so I took two double doses yesterday, and last night I slept and dreamt about him. Second time this week that I woke up crying from a dream about him.

    Not sure why right now. Not close to his death or his bd. Not sure at all why.

    I was given a tape of Simon and Garfunkel's "Greatest Hits" in my second year of university and my second year of depression, it really helped. It was sad music but it was hopeful also.

    I'm sorry to hear about your boyfriend and his father. It must be difficult. Maybe with his father passing away, old feelings have risen to the surface? And you're just dealing with them in your own way, for example, dreaming about him. These dreams could be grief for Ken and his father.

    And I am sorry you're feeling sad right now, in addition to your higher than normal pain levels. I wish I had something profound to say that would help. All I can really do is wish you all the best and let you know that I am thinking of you.

    Take care,

    jm

    Mom,

    I can relate to not dreaming much as I am the same and I know how disturbing it is to me when I do have a dream and remember it in the morning, I feel like it should mean something and it does freak me out because they are so rare.

    I know you said that you are dealing with a lot right now and I wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and sending you lots of hugs

    Take care
