For me it's this one. No matter my mood, I'll choke up each time I listen to it. The lead singer wrote this song for a good friend of theirs, whose fiancee committed suicide. "Bria
She walks to school with the lunch She packed Nobody knows what she's Holdin' back Wearin' the same dress She wore yesterday She hides the bruises with linen And lace The teacher wonders but she Doesn't ask It's hard to see the pain Behind the mask Bearing the burden Of a secret storm Sometimes she wishes she was Never born Through the wind and the rain She stands hard as a stone In her world that she can't rise above But her dreams give her wings And she flies to a place where She's loved Concrete angel Somebody cries in the middle Of the night The neighbors hear, but they turn Out the lights A fragile soul caught in the hands Of fate When morning comes It'll be too late Through the wind and the rain She stands hard as a stone In her world that she can't rise above But her dreams give her wings And she flies to a place where She's loved Concrete angel A statue stands in a shaded place An angel girl with an upturned face A name is written on a polished rock A broken heart that the world forgot Through the wind and the rain She stands hard as a stone In her world that she can't rise above But her dreams give her wings And she flies to a place where She's loved Concrete angel
Meet you downstairs in the bar and hurt, Your rolled up sleeves in your skull t-shirt, You say "what did you do with him today?", And sniffed me out like I was Tanqueray, 'Cause you're my fella, my guy, Hand me your stella and fly, By the time I'm out the door, You tear men down like Roger Moore,I cheated myself, Like I knew I would, I told you I was trouble, You know that I'm no good, Sweet reunion, Jamaica and Spain, We're like how we were again, I'm in the tub, you on the seat, Lick your lips as I soak my feet, Then you notice little carpet burn, My stomach drops and my guts churn, You shrug and it's the worst, Who truly stuck the knife in firstI cheated myself, Like I knew I would I told you I was trouble, You know that I'm no good,I cheated myself, Like I knew I would I told you I was trouble, Yeah, you know that I'm no good.
He left no time to regret Kept his dick wet With his same old safe bet Me and my head high And my tears dry Get on without my guyYou went back to what you knew So far removed From all that we went through And I tread a troubled track My odds are stackedI'll go back to black We only said goodbye with words I died a hundred times You go back to her And I go back toI go back to... us I love you much It's not enough You love blow and I love puff And life is like a pipeAnd I'm a tiny penny Rolling up the walls inside We only said goodbye with words I died a hundred timesYou go back to her And I go back to We only said goodbye with words I died a hundred timesYou go back to her And I go back to Black, black, black, black
I open my eyes I try to see but I’m blinded by the white light I can’t remember how I can’t remember why I’m lying here tonight And I can’t stand the pain And I can’t make it go away No I can’t stand the pain How could this happen to me I made my mistakes I’ve got no where to run The night goes on As I’m fading away I’m sick of this life I just wanna scream How could this happen to me Everybody’s screaming I try to make a sound but no one hears me I’m slipping off the edge I’m hanging by a thread I wanna start this over again So I try to hold onto a time when nothing mattered And I can’t explain what happened And I can’t erase the things that I’ve done No I can’t How could this happen to me I made my mistakes I’ve got no where to run The night goes on As I’m fading away I’m sick of this life I just wanna scream How could this happen to me I made my mistakes I’ve got no where to run The night goes on As I’m fading away I’m sick of this life I just wanna scream How could this happen to me
let me lurk Sun in pisces, ascendant-scorpio, Moon in leo, Venus in aquarius
Bury me softly in this womb I give this part of me for you Sand rains down and here I sit Holding rare flowers In a tomb... in bloom
Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved See my heart I decorate it like a grave Oh, you don't understand who they thought I was supposed to be Look at me now I'm a man who won't let himself be
Down in a hole, feeling so small Down in a hole, losing my soul I'd like to fly, But my wings have been so denied
Down in a hole and they've put all the stones in their place I've eaten the sun so my tongue has been burned of the taste I have been guilty of kicking myself in the teeth I will speak no more of my feelings beneath
Down in a hole, feeling so small Down in a hole, losing my soul I'd like to fly But my wings have been so denied
Bury me softly in this womb Oh I want to be inside of you I give this part of me for you Oh I want to be inside of you Sand rains down and here I sit Holding rare flowers Oh I want to be inside of you In a tomb... in bloom Oh I want to be inside...
Down in a hole, feeling so small Down in a hole, losing my soul Down in a hole, feeling so small Down in a hole, out of control I'd like to fly But my wings have been so denied
I should have known better To see what I could see My black shroud Holding down my feelings A pillar for my enemies I should have wrote a letter And grieve what I happen to grieve My black shroud I never trust my feelings I waited for the remedy When I was three, three maybe four She left us at that video store Be my rest, be my fantasy Be my rest, be my fantasy I’m light as a feather I’m bright as the Oregon breeze My black shroud Frightened by my feelings I only wanna be a relief No, I’m not a go-getter The demon had a spell on me My black shroud Captain of my feelings The only thing I wanna believe When I was three, and free to explore I saw her face on the back of the door Be my rest, be my fantasy Be my rest, be my fantasy I should have known better Nothing can be changed The past is still the past The bridge to nowhere I should have wrote a letter Explaining what I feel, that empty feeling Don’t back down, concentrate on seeing The breakers in the bar, the neighbor’s greeting My brother had a daughter The beauty that she brings, illumination Don’t back down, there is nothing left The breakers in the bar, no reason to live I’m a fool in the fetter Rose of Aaron’s beard, where you can reach me Don’t back down, nothing can be changed Cantilever bridge, the drunken sailor My brother had a daughter The beauty that she brings, illumination
Hold up Hold on Don't be scared You'll never change what's been and gone May your smile (may your smile) Shine on (shine on) Don't be scared (don't be scared) Your destiny may keep you warm 'Cause all of the stars Are fading away Just try not to worry You'll see them some day Take what you need And be on your way And stop crying your heart out Get up (get up) Come on (come on) Why're you scared? (I'm not scared) You'll never change What's been and gone 'Cause all of the stars Are fading away Just try not to worry You'll see them some day Take what you need And be on your way And stop crying your heart out 'Cause all of the stars Are fading away Just try not to worry You'll see them some day Take what you need And be on your way And stop crying your heart out We're all of us stars We're fading away Just try not to worry You'll see us some day Just take what you need And be on your way And stop crying your heart out Stop crying your heart out Stop crying your heart out Stop crying your heart out
This is our last goodbye I hate to feel the love between us die But it's over Just hear this and then i'll go You gave me more to live for More than you'll ever know
This is our last embrace Must I dream and always see your face Why can't we overcome this wall Well, maybe it's just because i didn't know you at all
Kiss me, please kiss me But kiss me out of desire, babe, and not consolation You know it makes me so angry 'cause i know that in time I'll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye
Did you say 'no, this can't happen to me,' And did you rush to the phone to call Was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind Saying maybe you didn't know him at all You didn't know him at all, oh, you didn't know
Well, the bells out in the church tower chime Burning clues into this heart of mine Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and the memories Offer signs that it's over... it's over
The last part (bolded) of the final verse (verse 3) is what chokes me up: [Verse 3 - G-Eazy:] In that first grade class they came and got me "Your mom's outside, say goodbye now to everybody" U-Haul was waiting with all of her things At least what she could pack In the time my dad's at work and before he came back Way to young to comprehend what was happening "Are we going to grandma's? When are we coming back again?" Little did I know that we were leaving him by himself And ten years would pass before Mom sees anybody else Just us, in middle school I ain't understand Who Melissa was and why she wasn't another man Biased and confused they try to explain but nobody can Wanted what I thought was normal, she had another plan Such is life, even if it took time for me to accept it No longer Dad now, but a woman with whom she slept with Or for the years when a secret was how she kept it I ain't get it, admittedly I was skeptic I came around, happiness I see's what you may have found And that's what's most important I don’t wanna see you breaking down I wanna see you smile, I don't wanna see you make a frown If she loves you, then that's all anybody needs maybe now By '05 things had gotten worse Moved to the basement, deep depressions a rotten curse Hiding in a dark space, her mind and her body hurts Becoming more reclusive and the pills should have been alerts So the worse it got, I became more and more afraid Until one night, I went into that room, on the floor she laid I shook her she was blue, her skin was cold, she wasn't breathing Screamed, "Melissa wake up" couldn't fathom that she was leaving Mom and Bro was running down, I screamed "somebody help" Try pumping her chest, CPR, but it didn’t help Toughest pill to swallow, but we lost, that’s forced reflection While in her life you made her happy, thank you for the blessing
Love is a wild animal It breathes you it looks for you It nests upon broken hearts and goes hunting when there are kisses and candles It sucks tightly on your lips and digs tunnels through your ribs It drops softly like snow First it gets hot then cold in the end it hurts
Amour Amour Everyone just wants to tame you Amour Amour in the end caught between your teeth
Love is a wild animal It bites and scratches and kicks towards me It holds me tightly with a thousand arms and drags me into its love nest It devours me completely and retches me back out after many years It drops softly like snow First it gets hot then cold in the end it hurts
Amour Amour Everyone just wants to tame you Amour Amour in the end caught between your teeth
Love is a wild animal You fall into its trap It stares into your eyes Spellbound when its gaze hits you
I guess the Mayans wasn't lying 2012 my world ended You used to say that I could see the future You was wrong cause you was in it And I was just with you the day before You said you loved me I said I loved you more And as much I wanna cower and bid the mic adieu And fall off a treetrunking tower tryna find you I gotta stay cause I remember that day I looked you in the face and told you nothing can stop me not even you Stick to the plan I'll meet you at our spot If reincarnation is true and we don't get too lost Even if you forget me and everything you left behind I never lied I love you in a place where there's no space and time I close my eyes and I can still hear you singing loud We never got to tell them who The Love Religion was about I ain't finna stage a cry in this rhyme
Signed Sincerely yours I live to let you Shine
Rapper Ab-Soul wrote a song called "The Book of Soul" dedicated to his longtime girlfriend Alori Joh who committed suicide from jumping from a tower in 2012. The song is also about his life and his battle with Steven-Johnson's syndrome.
I have always been the one to end it. I divorced and remarried the same man. Still not good at "exit strategy." Wonder if there is such a thing. Twenty - four years together now.
I'll start out with my personal favorites. Although, I was to end
It's good to think abstractly of what love feels like to you. Music can help you envisage love intimately and personally for you.
So, as a little girl my first understanding, utterance of this thing, "Love," was Stephanie Mills' "Never Knew Love

If I could play my guitar even a 1/4 as good as this man
