COME BACK
Released: May 02, 2006
COMPOSER: Eddie Vedder
ARTIST: Pearl Jam


Lyrics
If I keep holding out,... will the light shine through?
Under this broken roof,... it's only rain that I feel
I've been waiting out the days,... Come Back.

I have been planning out,... All that I'd say to you
Since you slipped away,... Know that I still remain true
I've been wishing out the days,..

Please say, that if you hadn't of gone now
I wouldn't have lost you another way
From wherever you are,.... Come Back.

And these days, they linger on
And I'm the night, as I'm waiting on
The real possibility I may meet you in my dream
I go to sleep

If I don't fall apart,.... will the memories stay clear
So you had to go,......... and I had to remain here

But the strangest thing to date
So far away
And yet you feel so close
And I'm not gonna question it any other way

There must be an open door
For you to
Come Back

And the days, they linger on
And every night, what I'm waiting for
Is the real possibility I may meet you in my dream

And sometimes you're there
And you're talking back to me
Come the morning I could swear you're next to me

And it's okay.

It's okay.
It's okay.

I'll be here
Come Back
Come Back

Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits breaks my heart a little bit each time I hear it.

We Just Disagree by Dave Mason.

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

I don't mean to nit-pick but since I've seen it multiple times on the thread I have to point out that the song is just titled Angel

There is a Nickelback song that plays in the background of a video of a little boy who died in a car crash. I don't know the song, but when I hear it I know its the one because it makes me remember the video. Its very depressing

I'm becoming suicidal just reading this thread. I think I'll be moving on. And for the record the song Dance by Leanne Womack kills me. I can't even sing it cause my voice starts to crack I get all choked up.

Oh and Rainbow Connection by Kermit the frog. It reminds me of my childhood.

Godspeed (Sweet Dreams) by The Dixie Chicks.

It's a very sweet song to a young son, but once you hear a friend singing it to her young son who has terminal cancer while he falls asleep in her arms, and then hear it played at his funeral, you can never hear it again without crying.

"Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)"

Dragon tales and the "water is wide"
Pirate's sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

The rocket racer's all tuckered out
Superman's in pajamas on the couch
Goodnight moon, will find the mouse
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

God bless mommy and match box cars
God bless dad and thanks for the stars
God hears "Amen," wherever we are
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Godspeed
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

Totally agree with "Godspeed". I lose it when I hear it. Last winter a 9 year old around here passed away after a tragic accident at home. 3 years before his sister had passed away from cancer at age 11. Godspeed was part of the slide show for the little boy's memorial. Too too sad.

I have the soundtrack and the song still gets to me.

I'm sorry about your mum. My mom lost her hers at about that same age as well, and so she was floored by that song when we saw the show in London too. I had seen the movie, so knew that scene was coming, but I wasn't ready for the song - or that it was reprised at the end when Billy wrote a reply (that part wasn't in the movie).

This the version from the recording, for anyone who wants to hear it:

And the reprise:

I love these songs, but they can cause spontaneous bouts of leaky eyes:

"Two Lovers" by Lovett (Ben, not Lyle)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUB79zz1pu8

"Blackbird" by Alter Bridge

http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwhbcdbkeXY

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go find some tissues and ice cream. *sniffle*

Ugh, that awful Christmas Shoes song. Hate it when that thing comes on. Keep your emotional blackmail out of my holiday happy.

Vincent by Don McLean about Vincent van Gogh

Fernando by Abba

Dust Bowl Dance by Mumford and Sons which I believe was inspired by John Steinbeck novels

In addition to what's been mentioned..

Ruby-Kenny Rogers
She Can't Be Really Gone- Tim McGraw


Someone said "Live Like You are Dying"...I don't think that's depressing at all. Turns out he wasn't dying and is grateful for the experience of living like he was; so I call that inspirational.

I personally find it depressing when a lot of people think a song is the opposite of what it is, like:

"Born in the USA" is not a patriotic song.
"Every Breath You Take" is about a stalker, not a love song
"I Will Always Love You" was commonly dedicated by SOs on the radio when it was popular after the Bodyguard, and I don't think they meant to be breaking up with their SOs.
"Saving All My Love for You" was a common wedding song in the 80s, it's about an affair.
