I cry when I hear "In the Arms of the Angles" by Sarah Maclachlan because it makes me think of the ASPCA commercials... they are so sad! I hate thinking about sad, homeless puppies! Ok, gotta go love on my dog now... I'm about to cry just thinking about the song/commercials.
Just thinking of this songs makes me want to cry...
One that really has got me in the last little bit is
You can let go - Crystal Shawanda. It's about a daddy's girl finally being able to do it on her own... honestly made me cry when I heard her live when she was touring with Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley
And when you finally fly away / I'll be hoping that I served you well
I tear up but in a good way. I imagine these words are coming from my dad.
I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables
It's from Les Miserables, and it's in the part of the play where Fantine is lamenting about being abandoned by her lover, given birth to her daughter (Cosette) out of wedlock, wrongly dismissed from a desperately-needed job, and forced into prostitution to survive and to support her daughter.
She goes from being sad to just utter despair and anger throughout the course of the song.
Oh, and the part where just before Fantine dies and she sings Come to Me to her daughter? And then Jean Valjean swears he'll take care of her? My heart was just broken.
