    I Don't Cry, But This Song Would Make Me If I Did.

    "Mad world" from the "Donnie Darko" soundtrack. Listening or wanting to listen to this is a sure sign that I'm in a depression cycle or one is coming soon. Verse 1 All around me are familiar faces Worn out places, Worn out faces Bright and early for the...

    Like You - By Evanescence

    It makes me cry because I think about how I would feel if my sister died, the pain and emptiness I'd feel. It makes me cry almost everytime I listen to it.  Stay low... Soft, dark, and dreamless  Far beneath my... Nightmares and loneliness  I hate me ...

    The Song That Makes Me Cry.

    Feels like Home by Edwina Hayes. I cry every time I listen to it. It reminds me of my aunt who passed away because of liver cancer. It was so hard watching her fight it. I never once cried in front of her when I took care of her while she was sick. But I broke down when she died...

    Eagles "Love will keep us alive"... I don't think it's meant to... but I'm a bit emotional. Besides that.. Kenny Chesney's song "Who you'd be today" I really can't listen to it without bawling.

    I heard this song by a few artists.It was orginally a bob Dylan song and I heard it differently by Adele "Make you feel my love" It spoke to me, that it is how I feel now. It's a bit sad but it's really about devotion.Isn't that what's missing in love these days?
