(Haha, ive always wanted to make threads, but i would always think "NO MORE THEN 1 THREAD A WEEK" but i dont care now :))

So anyway.
There is a song.
By Billy Joel, that makes me cry, like no other song has made me cry before.

In fact, i RARELY cry for a song.

This particular song is...

Goodnight Saigon.

I want you to listen to the song...and try to listen to the lyrics, THEN look at the lyrics.
The way the song was formed...absolutely touches me.

I actually suggest to not watch the video, but just to listen to the song with your eyes shut, and listen to it like a story.

Here are the lyrics to it :

We met as soul mates on Parris Island
We left as inmates from an asylum
And we were sharp, as sharp as knives
And we were so gung ho to lay down our lives

We came in spastic like tameless horses
We left in plastic as numbered corpses
And we learned fast to travel light
Our arms were heavy but our bellies were tight

We had no home front, we had no soft soap
They sent us Playboy, they gave us Bob Hope
We dug in deep and shot on sight
And prayed to Jesus Christ with all our might

We had no cameras to shoot the landscape
We passed the hash pipe and played our Doors tapes
And it was dark, so dark at night
And we held on to each other
Like brother to brother
We promised our mothers we'd write

And we would all go down together
We said we'd all go down together
Yes we would all go down together

Remember Charlie, remember Baker
They left their childhood on every acre
And who was wrong? And who was right?
It didn't matter in the thick of the fight

We held the day in the palm of our hand
They ruled the night, and the night
Seemed to last as long as six weeks...

...On Parris Island
We held the coastline, they held the highlands
And they were sharp, as sharp as knives
They heard the hum of our motors
They counted the rotors
And waited for us to arrive

And we would all go down together
We said we'd all go down together
Yes we would all go down together


So what do you think?
Have any song thats done that to you?
Heard this song before?

To me its a powerful song.

Nope, haven't heard it.
"I Hope You Dance" by LeeAnn Womack, Coldplay's "Fix You", and "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan make me cry.

Fix You excerpt:
When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
When high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

I Hope You Dance excerpt:
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance,
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

Music always gets me too. I cry at so many songs. My list of tear-jerker songs is seriously way too long to post on here.

For me its just this song..and...the poor sound quality of old OLD music.
