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

Re: Songs that describe how I'm feeling (part 2)

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.

Re: Songs that describe how I'm feeling (part 2)

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.:cry:

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.:(

Re: Songs that describe how I'm feeling (part 2)

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

Re: Songs that describe how I'm feeling (part 2)

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 :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:

Take care

Carole King Tapestry
"You've got a friend"


When you're down and troubled
And you need some loving care
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon i will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend

If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knocking at your door

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
Ain't it good to know that you've got a friend

When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, but don't you let them

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend



must have heard this one somewhere today because it has been on my mind all evening. I prefer this version to Michael Jacksons one .

Re: Songs that describe how I'm feeling (part 2)

One song that describes how I feel would be the song "Feel" by Robbie Williams.


"Feel"

Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I've been given
I sit and talk to God
And he just laughs at my plans
My head speaks a language
I don't understand

I just wanna feel
Real love feel the home that I live in
Cos I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste
I don't wanna die
But I ain't keen on living either
Before I fall in love
I'm preparing to leave her

Scare myself to death
That's why I keep on running
Before I've arrived
I can see myself coming
I just wanna feel
Real love feel the home that I live in
Cos I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste
And I need to feel
Real love and the love ever after
I can not get enough

I just wanna feel
Real love feel the home that I live in
I got too much love
Running through my veins
To go to waste

I just wanna feel
Real love and the love ever after
There's a hole in my soul
You can see it in my face
It's a real big place

Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I've been given
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand

Re: Songs that describe how I'm feeling (part 2)

Just had to post this, one of my favourite songs and I'm feeling hopeful. :)

"Here Comes the Sun" by The Beatles:

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right
It's all right

Re: Songs that describe how I'm feeling (part 2)

Here are two songs that I like and that describe how I'm feeling at times. I didn't want it to be too long so I designated the chorus and just put [Chorus] in it's place everywhere else.

"What Do You Do?" by Papa Roach (I like a lot of their songs)
I?ve got a one way ticket on a hell bound train
With nothing to lose and nothing to gain
Nobody ever taught me how to live
I?m feeling like i?m lost like I?ll never be found
I?m twisted and i?m turned around
Nobody ever taught me how to love
I?m hurting everybody i?m hurting myself
I?m desperate

[Chorus]
So what do you do when it all comes down on you?
Do you run and hide or face the truth?
So what do you do when it all comes down on you?
Do you run and hide or face the truth?


If you were to tell that i?d die today
This is what i?d have to say...
I never really had the time to live
And if you were to give me just another chance
Another life, another dance
All i really want to do is love
I?m hurting everybody, i?m hurting myself
I?m desperate

[Chorus]

When all is said and done
You could be the one
With open arms and open eyes

Your jumping off the edge
And hoping you can fly
Accept your fate for what it is
Into the great unknown
Yeah!

[Chorus]

So what do you do when it?s all turned around on you?
Do you run and hide or face the truth?
So what do you do, what do you do, what do you do?
Do you run and hide or face the ruth?

Got a one way ticket on a hell bound train
with nothing to lose and nothing to gain...​


And then "Beauty from Pain" by Superchick (Another one by her I like it "Stand in the Rain")
The lights go out all around me
One last candle to keep out the night
And then the darkness surrounds me
I know i'm alive but i feel like i've died
And all that's left is to accept that it's over
My dreams ran like sand through the fists that i made
I try to keep warm but i just grow colder
I feel like i'm slipping away

[Chorus]
After all this has passed, i still will remain
After i've cried my last, there'll be beauty from pain
Though it won't be today,
Someday i'll hope again
And there'll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain


My whole world is the pain inside me
The best i can do is just get through the day
When life before is only a memory
I'll wonder why God lets me walk through this place
And though i can't understand why this happened
I know that i will when i look back someday
And see how you've brought beauty from ashes
And made me as gold purified through these flames

[Chorus]

Here i am, at the end of me
Tryin to hold to what i can't see
I forgot how to hope
This night's been so long
I cling to Your promise
There will be a dawn

[Chorus]

I like this part. I'm glad you shared those, Cheyenne.
