    (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

    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.
