Love the lyrics in Robbie Williams song 'Feel`

I sit and talk to God
But he just laughs at my plans
My head speaks a language
I don't understand

She said tell me are you a Christian, child?
I said Ma'am I am tonight!
Walking in Memphis

So take the photographs, and still-frames in your mind
Hang them on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoo's of memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth, it was worth all the while
Time of your life, Greenday

Rachie Those exact Time of your Life lyrics were going to be my choice! (Same name too!)

I'll go with another Green Day one
'She puts her make up on like graffiti on the walls of the heartland'. Makes me think of a bold, strong woman, who doesn't give a bugger!!

"Don't talk to me in that familiar way,
When the keys are in my hand..."

Opening lyrics to Bittersweet by Everything But The Girl

Sosogoodagain Thu 26-Apr-18 17:46:31

Oh and
Bruno Mars When I was your man....

It all just sounds like ooh, ooh ooh hoo hoo
Mm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party 'cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby's dancing
But she's dancing with another man

SnoopyLover Thu 26-Apr-18 17:50:05

When you say its going to happen now
Well when exactly do you mean?
See I’ve already waited too long
And all my hope is gone

How soon us now? By The Smiths

"see you as a descant soul in the setting sun"

"Hello darkness my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again..."

Hello darkness my old friend, I've come to talk with you again.

"When your legs don't work like they used to before
And I can't sweep you off of your feet
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?"

Ed Sheeran, Thinking Out Loud...This would have been the song I had my first dance to, if it wasn't for one small detail... I got married in 2011
3 years before its release!

"But slow down
Won’t you stay here a minute more
I know you wanna walk through the door
But it’s all too fast
Let’s make it last a little while
I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly
I am your biggest fan
I hope you know I am
But do you think you can somehow
Slow down"

Slow Down, by Nichole Nordeman, a song about how fast children grow up. It makes me cry.

Helpmeplan Thu 26-Apr-18 17:59:55

I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
'Cause we were just kids when we fell in love

Perfect Ed Sheeran because dp and I were just kids when we fell in love

Now don’t lose your fight kid
It only takes a little push to pull on through
With so much left to do
You’ll be missing out
And we’ll be missing you

Missing You - All Time Low

My boyfriend (now fiancé) sent me the YouTube video of this song when I was suffering badly with PND and we were living apart.

“She’s the tear that hangs inside my soul forever...

All my blood for the sweetness of her laughter..”

Lover, you should’ve come over by Jeff Buckley.

Gets me every time 😢

iamme21 Thu 26-Apr-18 18:09:30

All because if you
I believe in angels
Not the kind with wings
No not the kind with halos
The kind that bring you home
When Home becomes a strange place
I’ll follow your voice
All you have to do
Is shout it out

The good left undone, rise against

skorpion Thu 26-Apr-18 18:11:11

Lots of Leonard Cohen, but my favourite is 'and thanks for taking the trouble from her eyes, I thought it was there for good so I never tried' from Famous Blue Raincoat. Gets me every time...

skorpion Thu 26-Apr-18 18:12:31

And the whole of Into My Arms by Nick Cave

Elflocks Thu 26-Apr-18 18:13:40

Also, I Won't Give Up by Jason Mraz.

Well, I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up....

.......'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No, I won't give up

And, The Reason by Hoobastank: -

"I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you."
