Post Songs that bring tears to your eyes
Or for some reason have you thinking of your lil ones.

Juat thought that it would be a good idea to share a few songs that remind me of my girlies and ones that I like.

Fly of course
The Red nose song cause we used that for a slide show of Laine.
Who youd be today by Kenny Chesney
Twila paris's song A Visitor from heaven that was played as we walked Laine out of the Chapel
Bright eyes which was played taking her in
In the Arms of an Angel
China Roses which was played at Edens Funeral
Glory Baby also played at Edens funeral.

That is all I can think of for now.....

So many....where to start......

I second In the arms of an angel.
The Rose (it was our wedding song and is Trinitys birth flower)
Peter Gabriel - I Grieve
The Goo goo dolls - Iris
Coldplay - Fix you and Swallowed in the Sea and Till Kingdom Come

Heres the word to Till Kingdom Come (makes me cry just reading them)
Kingdom Come

Still my heart and hold my tongue
I feel my time
My time has come
Let me in
Unlock the door
I never felt this way before

And the wheels just keep on turning
The drummer begins to drum
I don’t know which way I’m going
I don’t know which way I’ve come

Hold my head inside your hands
I need someone who understands
I need someone, someone who hears
For you I’ve waited all these years
For you I’d wait till kingdom come
Until my day, my day is done
And say you'll come and set me free
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me

In your tears and in your blood
In your fire and in your flood
I hear you laugh, I heard you sing
I wouldn’t change a single thing
And the wheels just keep on turning
The drummers begin to drum
I don’t know which way I’m going
I don’t know what I’ve become

For you I’d wait till kingdom come
Until my days, my days are done
And say you'll come and set me free
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me

Donovan Frankenreiter - Butterfly
If the road I travel goes bad
If the life I live becomes the life i had
I close my eyes, and I dream of my butterfly
coming down to rescue me

She's my butterfly
She's my butterfly

If the wind that guides you, pulls you away
If the words that love you, ever ask you to stay
I still close my eyes, and I dream of my butterfly
coming back to rescue me

She's my butterfly
She's my butterfly

Theres more, but I'll leave it there for now. Perhaps we should make a sticky subject with a list of songs?

Oh, and a little ditty I sing (although not very well) to Loralei before I put her in her cot at night.

Twinkle twinkle Trinitys star,
how we wonder where you are,
up above the world so high,
our little diamond in the sky,
Twinkle twinkle Trinitys star,
how we wonder where you are.

I used to sing Twinkle Little star to Riley when I was pregnant with him and like you if I sing it now it's always "How I wonder where you are"

Carley we played Gentle, gentle at the gremlins christening, it is a very beautiful, moving song.

I made a CD of sad songs a few days after I lost our angel, and it still brings me to tears. Some of the songs you guys have mentioned are on there like Arms of the Angels and it's also got Seven Spanish Angels and The Dance (a really old Garth Brooks song) and Enya's Only Time and Far Away by Nickelback which came out around the time I lost the baby.

I think that all songs now can be related back to our babies in some way. I was listerning to the radio the other day and titanic theme song came on and I just cryed my heart out. We played kermit the frogs "rainbow connection" at bradleys funeral and that makes me cry so much.

It is so funny because we had two songs to play at bradleys funeral. The rainbow connection and Lou Reeds "Perfect Day" and they both played perfectly at home, at the funeral directors and at the church before hand. When it came time to play "perfect day" at the service it wouldnt play and just kept jumping back too "kermit". When we got home the funeral directors turned up and said they had played the cd after the service and it worked perfectly. The same when we played it at home. Im sure Bradley didnt want us to have that song. Even though it sums up our time with Bradley - Perfect.

OMG Anne that has sent shivers down my spine as the same thing happened with us at Julia's funeral.
I checked the cd before i left home and it worked, checked it again at FIL's before giving it to the minister and still no problems, but them Hmmm.... it didnt work at the funeral.
DH even drove the ute up to the doors of the crem to play it in the ute and turn the sounds up ..... no go.
Afterwards BIL tried it in their wagon and it worked, got home and it worked.
Obviously Julia didnt want us to play that song.

Strange how things work like that

Watching Martha Stewart yesterday she had a guest artist, he was singing away and I wasn't paying alot of attention, but not long into the song I realsied it was something special. Here are the ltrics, I'm just trying to find a link to the actual song.

Beautiful Goodbye-Josh Kelley


It's hard to say goodbye
When I'm holding out my hands
Holding out my hands for love
That opened my eyes
Filled with tears that never dry
For you the angels cry

Goodnight, goodnight, my sweet love you're
beautiful
Goodnight, goodnight, the stars up above
will be bright
Despite a love bound and broken from the start
Goodnight, my beautiful goodbye

It's hard to comprehend
Our beginning is the end
Of a love that never had
A chance to dance with you
So I choose to take this pain
And wish for more to say than

Goodnight, goodnight, my sweet love you're
beautiful
Goodnight, goodnight, the stars up above
will be bright
Despite a love bound and broken from
the start
Goodnight, my beautiful goodbye

Oh sweet angel of mine
Gone to sail through the night
In m heart you'll always be
I hope that you'll remember me wherever you are

Goodnight, goodnight, my sweet love you're
beautiful
Goodnight, goodnight, stare up above will
be bright
Despite a love bound and broken from the start
Goodbye, Goodnight
Oh, Goodnight, goodnight, my sweet love
you're beautiful
Goodnight, goodnight, the stars up above
will be bright
Despite a love bound and broken from the start
Goodnight, my beautiful goodbye

George Canyon
My Name

Its cold in here fells like everythings upside down
I can feel you talking but I can barley make out the sound
I been kicking around these parts, feels like a year
Im gonna change this world if I ever get out of here
She wants to dress me in pink, paints my bedroom blue
And I just laugh to myself, because only I know the truth
This love is my only emotion
Havent learned any fear any pain
Its kind of funny with all this commotion
I guess theyve got me, to blame
And they dont even know my name
And they dont even know my name

Well Ive never felt so ready, think its finally time
Cause that big old world is waiting, and its mine all mine
Just then everything got real quiet, it got real bright
And a man took my hand said dont worry, your mommas gonna be alright
Then he opened the gate, & I followed him in
Said you can wait right, here till its your turn again
And his love is the one true emotion
Heaven knows no fear no pain
I never got to set my wheels in motion
But they loved me just the same
And they never even knew name
Didnt even know my name
You loved me just the same
And you didnt even know my name

Thanks Carley,
I'm at work at the mo and can't access you tube cause it's blocked from here (contains offensive material :roll: ). Will have another listen when I get home. I think I remember martha blabbing on to Josh on the show about it being originally written for the Iraq troops or something like that.

Well that was a experience for making you teary I tell you, I just decided to load and listen to the songs that I had not heard before....
I love that didn't even know my name song, It was on TV about three weeks ago at the start of something I was watching and I am thinking that Beautiful goodbye could be a nice one to make a video with . So going to try it now.

Hi guys

Only just stumbled upon this post now and all your beautiful songs are making me teary-eyed too :cry:

My favourite sad song that isn't even really a sad song is Welcome Home by Dave Dobbyn. Every time I listen to it I get all teary-eyed and think of our bubba.

I loved the song so much when it came out, around the time we lost bubba and I wished so much that we could play it to him or her to welcome them home to us. My DH also arranged for him and I to go to see Dave Dobbyn in concert and I bawled my eyes out during the song (lucky it was dark at the concert venue).

When I got pg with Holly I emailed Dave via his webiste and said how much I loved his song and how much it meant to me. I even asked if he would consider writing a new song just for the lost babies of this world. Anyway, I got a reply from his manager who said that Dave was away at that time but knew he would be moved by my message and the meaning I took from his song.

I decided to play Welcome Home at Holly's birth, and I did, but I can't really listen to it anymore without crying so I don't play it very often. It occasionally plays on the radio and that is OK, it is nice to be reminded of Bubba and I think of the day when he or she can say Welcome Home to me.

Sorry gotta go, blubbering now and can't see keyboard :cry:
