Songs that Heal

  1. I've noticed that there are other members besides myself that are hurting right now (giselle - my heart aches for you) even if they havent come out and said anything yet. There have been several members who have recently gone through tough break ups as well, and I hurt for you.

    Well anyways, my reason for posting. I've known so many people who use music as a sort of therapy and since I havent had relationship troubles in so long I guess I've. . .lost touch(?) with music that has helped me get through in the past. This morning I was listening to some old Babyface music and that song "Sorry for the Stupid Things" kind of made me feel more forgiving towards my guy. I've made mistakes (not nearly as many or as bad as he has) and he's made mistakes. In the end, we're still so in love. . .forgive me guys, I just can't walk away.

    Sorry, geez I keep getting off topic. What songs help you to heal?
     
  2. This is pretty wierd, but if I am feeling bad I play old old rock from the 70's and drive fast (but safe). For some reason that centers me.
     
  3. Let It Be, by Paul McCartney and my absolute favorite is this one, by the 5 StairSteps. :heart:

    Artist: Ooh Child Lyrics
    Song: The 5 Stairsteps (Stairsteps Five) Lyrics



    Ooh-oo child, things are gonna get easier
    Ooh-oo child, things'll get brighter
    Ooh-oo child, things are gonna get easier
    Ooh-oo child, things'll be brighter

    Some day, yeah
    We'll put it together and we'll get it all done
    Some day
    When your head is much lighter
    Some day, yeah
    We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
    Some day
    When the world is much brighter

    Ooh-oo child, things are gonna be easier
    Ooh-oo child, things'll be brighter
    Ooh-oo child, things are gonna be easier
    Ooh-oo child, things'll be brighter

    Some day, yeah
    We'll put it together and we'll get it all done
    Some day
    When your head is much lighter
    Some day, yeah
    We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
    Some day
    When the world is much brighter

    Some day, some day, some day
    We'll get it together and we'll get it all done
    Some day
    When your head is much lighter
    Some day, some day, some day
    We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
    Some day
    When the world is much brighter

    Ooh-oo child, things are gonna get easier
    Ooh-oo child, things'll be brighter
    Ooh-oo child, things are gonna get easier
    Ooh-oo child, things'll be brighter

    Right now
    You just wait and see how things are gonna be
    Right now...
     
  4. "Sorry seems to be the hardest word"
     
  5. me too. just roll the windows down, turn the radio way way up and drive. really loud angry indie girl rock music like ani difranco works well too. ani difranco is my favorite outdrive your problems music. untouchable face, gravel, not a pretty girl, and every state line are the most theraputic for me.

    and a hug for everyone having a tough time. my prayers are with you guys. :\
     
  6. I used to love this song. I am healed now.

    "I don't wanna live without your love" by Chicago

    Thought it wouldn't matter
    If we didn't stay together,
    And if it was over,
    Maybe it was for the better.
    I was thinking I'd be alright,
    'til I thought it all through.
    Now I know that I ain't really living
    If I have to live without you.

    I don't wanna live without your love,
    I don't wanna face the night alone.
    I could never make it through my life
    If I had to make it on my own.
    I don't wanna love nobody else,
    I don't wanna find somebody new.
    I don't wanna live without your love,
    I just wanna live my life with you

    Guess I had to go away,
    So much I had to go through.
    Guess I had to lose you
    To realize how much I love you.
    Can we make the fire burn again,
    Burn a little stronger?
    'Cause I've been alone, and baby,
    I can't be alone now any longer.

    I don't wanna live without your love,
    I don't wanna face the night alone.
    I could never make it through my life
    If I had to make it on my own.
    I don't wanna love nobody else,
    I don't wanna find somebody new.
    I don't wanna live without your love,
    I just wanna live my life with you

    Oh, if I had to make it on my own,
    My life would never be the same,
    My love would never be the same.
    I don't wanna live without your love

    I don't wanna live without your love,
    I don't wanna face the night alone.
    I could never make it through my life
    If I had to make it on my own.
    I don't wanna love nobody else,
    I don't wanna find somebody new.
    I don't wanna live without your love,
    I just wanna live my life with you
     
  7. MARY J BLIGE LYRICS

    "My Life"

    [Chorus]
    If you looked in my life
    And see what I've seen...
    If you looked in my life
    And see what I've seen...
    [Repeat]

    [Verse 1]
    Life can be only what you make it
    When you're feelin down
    You should never fake it
    Say what's on your mind
    And you'll find in time
    That all the negative energy
    It would all cease

    And you'll be at peace with yourself
    You won't really need no one else
    Except for the man up above
    Because He'll give you love

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 2]
    Take your time
    Baby don't you rush a thing
    Don't you know, I know
    We all are struggling
    I know it is hard
    But we will get by
    And if you don't believe in me
    Just believe in "He"

    Cause He'll give you peace of mind
    Yes He will
    And you'll see the sunshine
    For real, yes you would
    And you'll get to free your mind
    And things will turn out fine
    Oh, I know that things will turn out fine
    Yes they would, yes they would

    [Chorus]

    All you gotta do is take your time,
    One day at a time
    It's all on you
    what you gonna do?

    Oh you will see I'm so down and out
    Cryin' every day
    Don't know what to do or to say

  8. Thanks guys! Pradasmeadow, I like that song you posted! I totally forgot about that song.

    Does anyone know that song Michael McDonald (is that his name?) sang, I think it was a remake. It goes something like "you'll see my smile looks out of place. .tracks of my tears"? I love that song.

    I know I probably shouldnt be listening to sad songs to help heal, but I dont know. I love sad songs.
     
  9. Scandal's "Goodbye To You" got me through a couple of bad break-ups:


    Those times I waited for you seem so long ago
    I wanted you far too much to ever let you go
    You know you never got by your fear to choose
    And I guess I never could stand to lose
    It's such a pity to say

    Goodbye to you
    Goodbye to you

    Could I have loved someone like the one I see in you
    I remember the good times baby now, and the bad times too
    These last few weeks of holding on
    The days are dull, the nights are long
    Guess it's better to say

    Goodbye to you
    Goodbye to you
    Goodbye to you
    Goodbye to you

    'Cause baby it's over now
    No need to talk about it
    It's not the same
    My love for you's just not the same
    And my heart, and my heart
    And my heart can't stand the strain
    And my love, and my love
    And my love won't stand the pain
    And my heart, and my heart
    And my heart can't stand the strain
    And my love, and my love
    And my love...

    Goodbye to you
     
  10. Its called Tracks of My Tears

    People say I'm the life of the party
    Cause I tell a joke or two
    Although I might be laughing loud and hearty
    Deep inside I'm blue

    [Chorus:]
    So take a good look at my face
    You'll see my smile looks out of place
    Just look closer, it's easy to trace
    The tracks of my tears
    I need you, need you

    Since you left me if you see me with another girl
    Seeming like I'm having fun
    Although she may be cute she's just a substitute
    'Cause you're the permanent one

    [Chorus]

    Outside, I'm masquerading
    Inside, my hope is fading
    Just a clown, oh yeah since you put me down
    My smile is my make-up I wear since my break-up with you
     
  11. Michelle Branch's "Goodbye to you" has always helped me.
     
  12. You've got to get Zero 7. Get their "Simple Things" CD. It is so unbelievable. Everytime I feel blah, I throw it in my CD player and I calm down and feel better about my existence, choices, etc.
     
  13. Thats a great album. :love:
     
  14. There is a television commercial out right now with that song in it. I think it's for a cell phone company. I LOVE that commercial, JUST because of the song!
     
  15. Yeah i know, its so inspirational.:heart:
