Connecting Songs

Chaos posted 4/22/2021 12:29 PM

I see a few threads in other forums about various song types. So...I was curious - what are your go to songs for us that are in and/or attempting R.

I'll go first.

To Love Somebody - Bee Gees

There's a light
A certain kind of light
That never shone on me
I want my life to be lived with you
Lived with you
There's a way everybody say
To do each and every little thing
But what does it bring
If I ain't got you, ain't got?

You don't know what it's like, baby
You don't know what it's like

To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

In my brain
I see your face again
I know my frame of mind
You ain't got to be so blind
And I'm blind, so, so, so blind
I'm a man
Can't you see what I am?
I live and I breathe for you
But what good does it do
If I ain't got you, ain't got?

You don't know what it's like, baby
You don't know what it's like

To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

You don't know what it's like, baby
You don't know what it's like

To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

You don't know what it's like, baby
You don't know what it's like
To love somebody

Moot point, but this one spoke to me awhile ago

There goes my heart beating
'Cause you are the reason
I'm losing my sleep
Please come back now
There goes my mind racing
And you are the reason
That I'm still breathing
I'm hopeless now
I'd climb every mountain
And swim every ocean
Just to be with you
And fix what I've broken
Oh, 'cause I need you to see
That you are the reason
There goes my hands shaking
And you are the reason
My heart keeps bleeding
I need you now
And if I could turn back the clock
I'd make sure the light defeated the dark
I'd spend every hour, of every day
Keeping you safe
And I'd climb every mountain
And swim every ocean
Just to be with you
And fix what I've broken
Oh, 'cause I need you to see
That you are the reason (I don't wanna fight no more)
I don't wanna hide no more
I don't wanna cry no more
Come back I need you to hold me (You are the reason)
Be a little closer now
Just a little closer now
Come a little closer
I need you to hold me tonight
I'd climb every mountain
And swim every ocean
Just to be with you
And fix what I've broken
'Cause I need you to see
That you are the reason

I want you to be my love Over the Rhine

I want you to be my love
I want you to be my love
'Neath the moon and the stars above
I want you to be my love
I want you to know me now
I want you to know me now
Break a promise, make a vow
I know you want me now
Like I want you
Like I want you
I want you to be my love
I want you to be my love
'Neath the moon and the stars above
I want you to be my love
'Cause I want you
'Cause I want you
I know all o' you
All you've been through

More than Words
by Extreme

Saying "I love you"
Is not the words I want to hear from you
It's not that I want you
Not to say, but if you only knew
How easy
It would be to show me how you feel

More than words
Is all you have to do to make it real
Then you wouldn't have to say
That you love me
'Cause I'd already know

What would you do
If my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real

What would you say
If I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying "I love you"

La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
More than words
La di da, da di da

Now that I've tried to
Talk to you and make you understand
All you have to do is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands
And touch me
Hold me close don't ever let me go

More than words
Is all I ever needed you to show
Then you wouldn't have to say
That you love me
'Cause I'd already know

What would you do
If my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real

What would you say
If I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying I love you

La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
More than words
La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
More than words
La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
More than words
La di da, da di da

More than words
More than words

This isnít a song I would have ever cared for before, but itís one of the few that Iíve found that that seems to have been written from a reconciling after infidelity perspective.

Little do you know
How I'm breaking while you fall asleep
Little do you know
I'm still haunted by the memories
Little do you know
I'm trying to pick myself up piece by piece
Little do you know
I need a little more time

Underneath it all I'm held captive by the hole inside
I've been holding back
For the fear that you might change your mind
I'm ready to forgive you, but forgetting is a harder fight
Little do you know
I need a little more time

I'll wait, I'll wait
Iíll love you like you've never felt the pain, I'll wait
I promise, you don't have to be afraid, I'll wait
Love is here, and here to stay
So lay your head on me

Little do you know
I know you're hurting while I'm sound asleep
Little do you know
All my mistakes are slowly drowning me
Little do you know
I'm trying to make it better piece by piece
Little do you know
I, I love you 'til the sun dies

I'll wait, just wait
Iíll love you like I've never felt the pain, just wait
Iíll love you like I've never been afraid, just wait
Our love is here, and here to stay
So lay your head on me

I'll wait (I'll wait), I'll wait (I'll wait)
I love you like you've never felt the pain, I'll wait (I'll wait)
I promise you don't have to be afraid, I'll wait
Love is here, and here to stay
So lay your head on me
Lay your head on me
So lay your head on me
'Cause little do you know
I love you 'til the sun dies

For me:
Courage by pink

I'm walking uphill both ways, it hurts
I bury my heart here in this dirt
I hope it's a seed, I hope it works
I need to grow, here I could be
Closer to light, closer to me
I don't have to do this perfectly, yeah

Rain, it pours, rain, it pours
It's pouring on me
The rain, it falls, rain, it falls
Sowing the seeds of love and hope, love and hope
We don't have to stay, stuck in the way

Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change today? (Oh)
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change today? (Oh)

(Have I the courage to change?)
I'm walking uphill both ways, it hurts
(Have I the courage to change?)
I bury my heart here in this dirt
(Have I the courage to change today? Oh)
I hope it's a seed, I hope it works
(Have I the courage to change?)
I need to grow, here I could be
(Have I the courage to change?)
Closer to light, closer to me
(Have I the courage to change today? Oh)
I don't have to do this perfectly

See, I let the light in the darkest places
Let the sun shine, pain goes away
Nothing is permanent for me, yeah
Flowers, they bloom and fade away
The beauty, it happened inside of me
Even if it's a memory, yeah

Rain, it pours, rain, it pours
It's pouring on me
The rain, it falls, rain, it falls
Sowing the seeds of love and hope, love and hope
We don't have to stay, stuck in the way

Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change today? (Oh)
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change today? (Oh)

(Have I the courage to change?)
I'm walking uphill both ways, it hurts
(Have I the courage to change?)
I bury my heart here in this dirt
(Have I the courage to change today? Oh)
I hope it's a seed, I hope it works
(Have I the courage to change?)
I need to grow, here I could be
(Have I the courage to change?)
Closer to light, closer to me
(Have I the courage to change today? Oh)
I don't have to do this perfectly

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change today? (Oh)

With all these song posts I've been running through the YT playlist from when I was going through the divorce. Lots of Adele and Christina Perri back when both were very much less happy then they are today.

Another Over the Rhine song.
Give Me strength

Sitting in the rain alone
Looking at a place that's gone
Boarded up my memories
But something's drawn me here again and I
I cannot leave the past alone
Hoped that I would never find
All the shit I left behind
Now I find the child in me is going to remind me that I
I can't forget my past for long
So take a look outside yourself
And tell me what you see
I can't believe
That you won't see the change in me
Give me strength to find the road that's lost in me
Give me time to heal and build myself a dream
Give me eyes to see the world surrounding me
Give me strength to be only me
I don't want to hear the things
You say you know all you've redeemed
'Cause I can't change what's come before
Build myself some better dreams
And cast off the fear that holds me here
So take a look outside yourself
And tell me what you see
I can't believe
That you won't see the change in me
Give me strength to find the road that's lost in me
Give me time to heal and build myself a dream
Give me eyes to see the world surrounding me
Give me strength to be only me

A couple of Christmases ago he bought me a sign that reads "My favorite story is ours" This song means so much to me because only we know the real depth of what we have been through - and how hard we have fought for our marriage

The Story - Brandi Carlile

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true - I was made for you

I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do and I was made for you

You see the smile that's on my mouth
It's hiding the words that don't come out
And all my friends who think that I am blessed
They don't know my life is a mess
No, they don't know who I really am
And they don't know what I've been through
Like you do
And I was made for you

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true - I was made for you

Oh yeah, well it's true - that I was made for you

So many great suggestions, thanks. Here's mine lately...

Foo Fighters, Times Like These, 2006 version, live in LA, or the BBC 2020 Covid collab version.

I, I'm a one way motorway
I'm the one that drives away
Then follows you back home
I, I'm a street light shining
I'm a wild light blinding bright
Burning off and on
Ah-ah-ahh

It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again

I, I'm a new day rising
I'm a brand new sky
To hang the stars upon tonight
I am a little divided
Do I stay or run away
And leave it all behind?
Ah-ah-ahh

It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again
It's times like these you learn to live again......


And this from the 70's keeps popping into my head... maybe something about acceptance and moving forward or just embracing each day.


Dan Fogelberg, To the Morning

Watching the sun
Watching it come
Watching it come up over the rooftops
Cloudy and warm
Maybe a storm
You can never quite tell
From the morning

And it's going to be a day
There is really no way to say no
To the morning
Yes it's going to be a day
There is really nothing left to
Say but
Come on morning

Waiting for mail
Maybe a tail
From an old friend
Or even a lover
Sometimes there's none
But we have fun
Thinking of all who might
Have written

And maybe there are seasons
And maybe they change
And maybe to love is not so strange

The sounds of the day
They hurry away
Now they are gone until tomorrow
When day will break
And you will wake
And you will rake your hands
Across your eyes
And realize
That it's going to be a day
There is really no way to say no
To the morning
Yes it's going to be a day
There is really nothing left to say but
Come on morning
