sure we've heard barry manilow croon "i write the songs", a song which according to him can make young girls cry. but the song that can make my eyes water is far from being a lovesong and that's semisonic's Closing Time. it just reminds me of the good and bad times i've had with my friends from college who i no longer get to see. how about you? please share that one song that can make you sentimental and the reason why it can make you cry. is it because it reminds you of memories from a not-so distant past or simply because the lyrics are kinda sad?

Mine would have to be The Dance by Garth Brooks: Everytime I hear it, I cry my eyes out: Looking back on the memory of The dance we shared beneath the stars above For a moment all the world was right How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye And now I'm glad I didn't know The way it all would end the way it all would go Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain But I'd of had to miss the dance Holding you I held everything For a moment wasn't I the king But if I'd only known how the king would fall Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all And now I'm glad I didn't know The way it all would end the way it all would go Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain But I'd of had to miss the dance Yes my life is better left to chance I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

No, actually it reminds me of dancing with my dad and my papa joe at my wedding, I lost my papa joe in 1997 and my dad this march. The pain refers to watching them suffer from the cancer they had, but if I think back on my wedding day when I danced with them both I can feel us dancing again.

There are actually 2 songs that always make me cry when I hear them. One is "Butterfly Kisses" and the other is "In My Daughter's Eyes". I'm posting their lyrics below: ~~~~~~ "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle There are 2 things I know for sure She was sent here from heaven And she's daddy's little girl As I drop to my knees by her bed at night She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes And I thank God for all of the joys in my life oh, but most of all For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair "Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride" "I know the cake lookds funny, Daddy, but I sure tried" In all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right To deserve a hug every morning And butterfly kisses at night Sweet sixteen today She's looking like her Mama a little more everyday One part woman, the other part To perfume and makeup from ribbons and curls Trying her wings out in a great big world. But I remember Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair "You know how much I love you, Daddy, but if you don't mind" "I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time" With all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right To deserve a hug every morning And butterfly kisses at night All the precious time Like the wind, the years go by Precious butterfly Spread your wings and fly She'll change her name today She'll make a promise and I'll give her away Standing in the bride room, just staring at her She asked me what I'm thinking and I said "I'm not sure. I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl" She leaned over... gave me Butterfly kisses with her Mama there Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair "Walk me down the aisle, Daddy, it's just about time" "Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy?" "Daddy, don't cry" Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses I couldn't ask God for more, man this is what love is I know I gotta let her go, but I'll always remember every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses at night ~~~~~ "In My Daughter's Eyes" by Martina McBride In my daughter's eyes, I am a hero I am strong and wise and I know no fear But the truth is plain to see She was sent to rescue me I see who I wanna be In my daughter's eyes In my daughter's eyes, everyone is equal Darkness turns to light and the world is at peace This miracle God gave to me Gives me strength when I am weak I find reason to believe In my daughter's eyes And when she wraps her hand around my finger Oh it puts a smile in my heart Everything becomes a little clearer I realize what life is all about It's hanging on when your heart has had enough It's giving more when you feel like giving up I've seen the light It's in my daughter's eyes In my daughter's eyes I can see the future A reflection of who I am and what will be Though she'll grow and someday leave Maybe raise a family When I'm gone I hope you see How happy she made me For I'll be there In my daughter's eyes

the song that really touched my heart was that of england dan and john ford coley, titled, JUST TELL ME YOU LOVE ME. that was the song in the background when my partner gave her "yes" to my proposal "will you marry me?" although we had another song during our wedding day, entitled ENDLESS LOVE. i really love to hear sentimental and love songs. they lighten up my day.

Aside from those very heartwarming christian songs there's this one song that could really put me into tears. It is charelne's "never been to me". I really love the lyrics of the song and I felt that the song was kinda made for me haha..that song reminds me of my stupid mistakes from the past and kinda regret it and so that makes me cry really.. yeah, i've never been to me!huhu :(

hey, you know what paradise is? it's a lie. a fantasy recreated by people and places as you'd like them to be. but you know what truth is? it's that little baby you're holding and it's that man you fought with this morning, the same one you're going to make love to tonight, that's truth, that's love. yes, that song is nice.

This might be strange, but the most audio thing that gets me near crying, is not a song, but rather a melody used in the naruto anime series. I believe anyone who knows the anime knows also the melody, "Sadness and Sorrow!" Tears just jump to your eyes! Maybe the scenario and the story line of the anime series also has something to do with it. I've witnessed several grown up men's tears falling when reaching a special episode in the series.

i just don't know if it's true that the best lovesongs are composed by people who are brokenhearted.

'My Heart will go on' by Celine Dion (theme song to the movie 'Titanic')..I cannot hear this song without choking up. I reminds me of all the people in my life who i loved, then lost -esp my father, and how those people still live on in your heart despite the fact they are now 'gone'..

Sad songs - lady
Don't even start playing "I Made It Through the Rain" by Barry Manilow. My tears begin from the first few notes. Reminds me too often of the very tough times I've gone through my life and how, someway, I am still here, still going.

i could relate to the song "there's no easy way to break somebody's heart"...it's so true that in a break up both are still sad somehow especially to the one who invested so much in a relationship and all of a sudden the partner fell out of love or found someone new.:(

Mine is not a song as such but a piece of music that is guaranteed to bring tears to my eyes. Barbar's Addagio, it is so sad and haunting that it never fails to make me cry

hello! this is the very first discussion that i've posted and you're the very first to answer. i won't forget you.LOL. thank you very much! the lyrics are good but story behind the song that can make you cry is really sad. my late grandfather too has a favorite song, it's an old song entitled greenfields and my mother and her siblings always cry whenever they hear it.

"Amazing Grace" is the one song that always brings tears to my eyes. It seems to be the music and not so much the words. I have never really figured out why that song does that to me but I definitely have a physical reaction to the music.

The song that makes me cry is Whitney Houston, I will always love you. Her voice is so perfect in this song it heightens the intensity. But the idea of walking away from someone and making the ultimate sacrifice because you know that you are not right for them is what gets me. "If I should stay I would only be in your way. So I'll go but I know I'll think of you every step of the way. And i will always love you..."

I have lots of favorite songs that remind me of people i have been with, not so long ago. But among these songs, I love "Ever Since the World Begun" most, and i would love to hear it over and over again even if most of the time, it really makes my eyes well up with tears longing for the one best friend that I haven't seen for years.
