Pandora seemed intent on playing all the songs I cry over today. I found it.. oddly soothing. Almost cathartic. I want to listen to more! Could you share with me some of the songs that touch your heart and make you cry?
Here's some examples and why they make me cry:
Nickelback - Lullaby
I have been the person he's singing to. Someone so depressed and desperate that ending it all was a serious consideration. Every so often those feelings creep up and I listen to this. It makes me cry and reminds me of all the people in my life who would miss me.
Fergie - Big Girls Don't Cry
I worry that this is how my boyfriend and I will split up. Our relationship isn't everything that I want it to be.. and I'm worried that one day I will decide that it's best for me to leave. She seems to hit all the things I would tell him and myself.
I'm open to sad songs because the story of the lyrics are sad.. or songs that are uplifting and give you so much hope it makes you cry.
(I seen this previously
. It's been awhile since that one though! How about some newer songs?)
(if you can link to youtube of those songs, that'd be awesome but not required!)
