Songs that describe the situation

“St Ides” by Macklemore- One line that just guts me even though the song isn’t about anything remotely related:

“Crawling under broken fences
When shit gets hard you know who your friend is”

Literally can’t hear that line without a small heart attack.

The whole world's scared, so I swallow the fear
The only thing I should be drinking is an ice cold beer
So cool and limed and we try, try, try
But we try too hard and its a waste of my time
Done looking for the critics 'cause there everywhere
They don't like my jeans, they don't get my hair
Exchange ourselves and we do it all the time
Why do we do that, why do I do that?
Why do I do that?
Oh, pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel
Like you're less than fuckin' perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you're nothing
You're fuckin' perfect to me!
You're perfect, you're perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you're nothing
You're fuckin' perfect to me

Breeze still carries the sound
Maybe I'll disappear
Tracks will fade in the snow
You won't find me here

Ice is starting to form
Ending what had begun
I am locked in my head
With what I've done

I know you tried to rescue me
Didn't let anyone get in
Left with a trace of all that was
And all that could have been

Please, take this
And run far away, far away from me
I am tainted
The two of us were never meant to be

All these pieces,
promises,
and left behinds
If only I could see
In my nothing
You meant everything,
everything to me

Gone
Fading
Everything
and
all that
could have been...

Please, take this
and run far away,
far as you can see
I am tainted
Happiness and peace of mind
were never meant for me

All these pieces,
promises,
and left behinds
If only I could see
In my nothing
You meant everything,
everything to me...

I really cope a lot with songs. I listen to them all day. So I like posting on here. Sorry if [ irritate some.
Garth Brooks more then a Memory

People say she's only in my head
It's gonna take time but I'll forget
They say I need to get on with my life
But they don't realize
Is when your dialing six numbers just to hang up the phone
Driving cross town just to see if she's home
Waking a friend in the dead of night just to hear 'em say it's gonna be alright
When your finding things to do not to fall asleep
'Cause you know she'll be there in your dreams
That's when she's
More than a memory
Took a match to everything she ever wrote
Watched her words go up in smoke
Tore all the pictures off the wall
But that ain't helping me at all
'Cause when your talking out loud and nobody's there
You look like hell and you just don't care
Drinking more than you've ever drank
Sinking down lower than you've ever sank
When you find yourself falling down upon your knees
Praying to God begging him please
That's when she's
More than a memory
She's more
She's more
'Cause when your dialing her number just to hang up the phone
Driving cross town just to see if she's home
Waking a friend in the dead of night just to hear 'em say it's gonna be alright
When our finding things to do not to fall asleep
'Cause you know she'll be waiting in your dreams
That's when she's
More than a memory
People say she's only in my head
It's gonna take time but I'll forget

Where are you tonight, I wonder?
Where will you be tonight when I cry?
Will sleep for you come easy
Whilst I alone can't slumber?
Will you welcome the morning
At another man's side?

How easy for you the years have slipped under
And left me with a shadow the sun can't dispel
For I built for you a tower full of love and admiration
But I built it so high I could not reach it myself

Where are you tonight, I wonder?
Where will you be tonight when I cry?
Will sleep for you come easy
Whilst I alone can't slumber?
Will you welcome the morning
At another man's side?

The view from my window is a world full of sadness
The face in my mirror is the one face I know
You have taken all that's in me, so my heart is in no danger
Oh my heart is in no danger, but I'd still like to know

Where are you tonight, I wonder?
Where will you be tonight when I cry?
Will sleep for you come easy
Whilst I alone can't slumber?
Will you welcome the morning
At another man's side?

There is a silence and it cannot be broken
There is a pure heart, it's there I will go
Time will work its healing, and my spirit will grow stronger
But in the meantime, I would still like to know

Where are you tonight, I wonder?
Where will you be tonight when I cry?
Will sleep for you come easy
Whilst I alone can't slumber?
Will you welcome the morning
At another man's side?

This is what POSOM and XFWW was like. She was googoo gaga over him. He didn't give a crap about her...except as an ego boost at having something I had. Also, my XFWW is objectively very attractive if she puts any effort into it. She looks like Dawn Wells (Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island) except more curvy. Also, she's always dressed VERY conservatively...long skirts, high-necked blouses, hair usually in a bun, all clothes loose fitting. But for him, she let the tiger loose. That is until I blew his world up, cost him 2 careers (military reserve and his security clearance job), his own marriage, the respect of his kids and peers and a boat load of cash. Oh,his health took a downturn too. But I ramble...sorry.

Follow Me

Uncle Kracker

You don't know how you met me
You don't know why
You can't turn around
And say goodbye

All you know is when I'm with you
I make you free
And swim through your veins
Like a fish in the sea

I'm singin'
Follow me
Everything is all right
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me

I'm not worried
'Bout the ring you wear
'Cause as long as no one knows
Then nobody can care

You're feelin' guilty
And I'm well aware
But you don't look ashamed
And baby I'm not scared

I'm singin'
Follow me
Everything is all right
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me

Won't give you money
I can't give you the sky
You're better off if you don't ask why…

I’m looking through you
The Beatles

I'm looking through you, where did you go
I thought I knew you, what did I know
You don't look different, but you have changed
I'm looking through you, you're not the same
Your lips are moving, I cannot hear
Your voice is soothing, but the words aren't clear
You don't sound different, I've learned the game
I'm looking through you, you're not the same
Why, tell me why, did you not treat me right?
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight
You're thinking of me the same old way
You were above me, but not today
The only difference is you're down there
I'm looking through you and you're nowhere
Why, tell me why, did you not treat me right?
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight
I'm looking through you, where did you go
I thought I knew you, what did I know
You don't look different, but you have changed
I'm looking through you, you're not the same

Lost and all alone
I always thought that I could make it on my own
But since you left I hardly make it through the day
My tears get in the way, and I need you back to stay
I wonder through the night
And search the world for the words to make it right
All I want is the way it used to be
With you here close to me
And I've got to make you see
That I'm lost with out your love
Life without you isn't worth the trouble of
I'm as helpless as a ship without a wheel
A touch without a feel
I can't believe its real
And someday soon I'll wake and find my heart won't have to break
Yes, I'm lost with out your love
Life without you isn't worth the trouble of
All I want is just the way it used to be
I need you here with me
Oh darling can't you see
If we had love before we can have it back once more

"The Reason" by Hoobastank
I hated it so much when it first came out but i cannot count how many times I've listened and cried to it after D day.
Since I'm a mad hatter....
"Jolene" by Dolly Parton
Heard this the other day when BH and I had alone time, made me cry like a baby. Definitely reminds me of his OP.

I’m a little older. The Burt Bacharach generation. This is the song my wife sent me when I moved out. I must say it was kind of touching and made me sad

A House Is Not a Home
Luther Vandross

A chair is still a chair, even when there's no one sittin' there
But a chair is not a house and a house is not a home
When there's no one there to hold you tight
And no one there you can kiss goodnight
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh


A room is a still a room, even when there's nothin' there but gloom
But a room is not a house and a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart
And one of us has a broken heart
Now and then I call your name
And suddenly your face appears
But it's just a crazy game
When it ends, it ends in tears
Pretty little darling, have a heart, don't let one mistake keep us apart
I'm not meant to live alone, turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn the key
Oh, please be there, sayin' that you're still in love with me, yeah

I'm not meant to live alone, turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn the key
Oh, please be there, still in love
I said still in love
Still in love with me, yeah
Are you gonna be in love with me
I want you and need to be, yeah
Still in love with me
Say you're gonna be in love with me
It's drivin' me crazy to think that my baby
Couldn't be still in love with me
Are you gonna be, say you're gonna be
Are you gonna be, say you're gonna be
Are you gonna be, say you're gonna be
Well, well, well, well
Still in love, so in love, still in love with me
Are you gonna be
Say that you're gonna be
Still in love with me, yeah
With me, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Still in love with me, yeah, yeah

This song always represented everything I loved about my husband and my marriage. Now it is a painful reminder of what I lost, or maybe what I never really had in the first place. I still can't listen to it without crying. I don't feel at home in this life now.

Don Henley "Taking You Home"

I had a good life
Before you came
I had my friends and my freedom
I had my name
Still there was sorrow and emptiness
'Til you made me glad
Oh, in this love I found strength I never knew I had

And this love
Is like nothing I have ever known
Take my hand, love
I'm taking you home
I'm taking you home

There were days, lonely days
When the world wouldn't throw me a crumb
But I kept on believing
That this day would come

And this love
Is like nothing I have ever known
Take my hand, love
I'm taking you home
I'm taking you-home
Where we can be with the ones who really care
Home, where we can grow together
Keep you in my heart forever

And this love
Is like nothing I have ever known
Take my hand, love
I'm taking you home
Taking you home

And this love
Is like nothing I have ever known
Take my hand, love
I'm taking you home
I'm taking you home

“Alone” by Bishop’s Green:

“What it's like to feel love
What it's like to feel hate
From the bottom of my glass
To the scars upon my fists
But I can't see to clear
Through my clouded mind
And I don't feel to good
And I can't remember why

What it's like to feel hate
What it's like to feel rage
And i dont want to be kicked around
Pushed knocked down
And I can't get to close
Fear that I could snap
And it all points to you
Tormended mind

You left me bloody on the ground
Beat down and all alone
No one else around

Alone alone alone
Bloody on the ground
Beat down and all alone
No one else around
Alone alone alone”

But the very end:

“Beat down beat down
Never give up
Beat down beat down
Never give up never give up“

Never give up.

This was already listed above, but I need to second "I'm Not the Only One" by Sam Smith.

You and me we made a vow
For better or for worse
I can't believe you let me down
But the proof is in the way it hurts
For months on end I've had my doubts
Denying every tear
I wish this would be over now
But I know that I still need you here

You say I'm crazy
'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
But when you call me baby
I know I'm not the only one

It all depends on where you are in the process... in the beginning, when I suspected, or right after d-day I listened to a lot of:

"Jolene" by Dolly Parton
"(It Looks Like) I'll Never Fall in Love Again" by Tom Jones
"You Really Got a Hold on Me" by The Beatles
"Ever Fall in Love (With Someone You Should'nt've)?" by the Buzzcocks
"She's Got You" by Patsy Cline
"Crying" by Roy Orbison
"The End of the World" by Skeeter Davis
"Strange" by Patsy Cline
"Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley
"Mad World" by Gary Jules and Tears for Fears (two different versions)
"My World is Empty Without You" by The Supremes
"What Becomes of the Brokenhearted" by Jimmy Ruffin
"Suspicion" by Terry Stafford
"Lonely Teardrops" by Jackie Wilson
"If I Can't Have You" by the BeeGees
and the entire "Sing the Sorrow" album by AFI

And then I worked in...
"White Flag" by Dido
"Hey Ya!" by OutKast
"It's Not Right but It's Okay (Thunderpuss Remix)" by Whitney Houston
and
"Tower of Strength" by Gene McDaniel

When I kicked WH out and we had virtually no contact for months aside from mediation meetings, I ditched the emo playlist and had a much more fun/ready to party/let's do this one instead.

"Harmony Hall," Vampire Weekend

We took a vow in summertime
Now we find ourselves in late December
I believe that New Year's Eve
Will be the perfect time for their great surrender
But they don't remember
Anger wants a voice, voices wanna sing
Singers harmonize till they can't hear anything
I thought that I was free from all that questionin'
But every time a problem ends, another one begins
And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a worried mind could never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
Ooh, ooh, ooh
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
Within the halls of power lies a nervous heart that beats
Like a Young Pretender's
Beneath these velvet gloves I hide
The shameful, crooked hands of a moneylender
'Cause I still remember
Anger wants a voice, voices wanna sing
Singers harmonize till they can't hear anything
I thought that I was free from all that questionin'
But every time a problem ends, another one begins
And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a worried mind could never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
Ooh, ooh, ooh
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a worried mind could never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
Ooh, ooh, ooh
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a worried mind could never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
