EDIT: That should say "about heartbreak"!
What would hearbreak be---songs about someone who doesn't listen?


Sthenri's thread in the Astrology folder about love songs inspired me to ask what are your favorite songs about love's "end"?

Mine is David Gray's "Shine."
I can't think of another song that better captures my philosophy for dealing with loss or life in general.

I can see it in your eyes
what I know in my heart is true
that our love it has faded
like the summer run through
and we'll walk down the shoreline
one last time together
feel the wind blow our wanderin' hearts
like a feather
but who knows what's waiting
in the wings of time
dry your eyes
we're gonna go where we can shine

Don't be hiding in sorrow
or clinging to the past
with your beauty so precious
and the season so fast
and hey, no matter how cold the horizon appears
or how far the first night
when I held you near
we're gonna rise from these ashes
like a bird aflame
take my hand
we're gonna go where we can shine
(na na na na na na na na, shine)

And for all that we struggle
for all we pretend
you know, you know, you know it don't come down to nothing
except love in the end
and ours is a road
that is strewn with goodbyes
but as it unfolds
as it all unwinds
remember your soul is the one thing
you can't compromise
step out of the shadow
we're gonna go where we can shine
we're gonna go where we can shine
we're gonna go where we can shine

(and look, and look)
Through the windows of midnight
moonfoam and silver

---------------------------
Honorable mention:
Stevie Wonder, "Lately"
Pearl Jam, "Black"

So what are your favorites?

This is mine. Makes me cry everytime.

This is my fav aussie one. Not only a heartbreak song but a bad day in general song. ALWAYS makes me feel better.
http://youtube.com/watch?v=2NN7D6G6uQI

#Was looking for another powderfinger song on youtube but it wasn't there. The ULTIMATE heartbreak song for me is 'since you've been gone' which has a long sentimental story to me. Its actually not about romantic heartache but the death of the singer's (Bernard Fanning) brother which I only found out recently#

Jane!

Fair warning...I might hog your thread on this topic! LOL!
PS) Songs about hearbreak are just as important...I just don't know any!

For starters..."Ghost" by the Indigo Girls

There's a letter on the desktop
That I dug out of a drawer
The last truce we ever came to
In our adolescent war

And I start to feel a fever
From the warm air through the screen
You come regular like seasons
Shadowing my dreams

And the Mississippi's mighty
But it starts in Minnesota
At a place that you could walk across
From five steps down
And I guess that's how you started...
Like a pinprick to my heart
But at this point you rush right through me
And I start to drown

And there's not enough room
In this world for my pain
Signals cross and love gets lost
And time passed makes it plain
Of all my demon spirits I need you the most
I'm in love with your ghost
I'm in love with your ghost

Dark and dangerous like a secret
That gets whispered in a hush
When I wake the things I dreamt about you
Last night make me blush
When you kiss me like a lover,
Then you sting me like a viper
I go follow to the river
Play your memory like the piper

And I feel it like a sickness
How this love is killing me
But I'd walk into the fingers
Of your fire willingly
And dance the edge of sanity
I've never been this close
In love with your ghost

Unknowing captor
You'll never know how much you
Pierce my spirit
But I can't touch you
Can you hear it?
A cry to be free
I'm forever under lock and key
As you pass through me

Now I see your face before me
I would launch a thousand ships
To bring your heart back to my island
As the sand beneath me slips
As I burn up in your presence
And I know now how it feels
To be weakened like Achilles
With you always at my heels

And my bitter pill to swallow is the silence that I keep
It forces me, I can't swim free
The river is too deep
Though I'm baptized by your touch
I am no worse at most
In love with your ghost

You are shadowing my dreams
I'm in love with your ghost
(ad lib to fade...ha ha)

Nice songs.

8thMoon - Feel free to hog away. I think my typo turned people off to this thread, so it may just be the 3 of us posting. We can use this thread to discuss anything our hearts desire.

I thought of some more favorites...
"Love Hurts" - Nazareth
"Hallelujah" - Jeff Buckley's version is my favorite. This is so much more than a break-up song, but it can work as that too.
"Last Goodbye" - J Buckley
"Every Rose Has Its Thorn" - Poison (I was a kid in the 80s. )

Hey Jane!

Funny you mentioned "Hallelujah." A friend and I were just having the "which version is better" debate. I'm kinda partial to Rufus Wainwright and she likes Jeff Buckley's version. They're both great! Awesome song!

Loved the song "Shine" that you posted too.

Ahhh...the 80's hairband ballads! "Every Rose Has It's Thorn" was one of the first songs I learned to play on the guitar. I think there are 3 chords, so it worked for me!!!

OK...let's regress a little further back in time to those tear your heart out ballads. (Picturing myself in gradeschool singing to a poster of Leif Garrett. LMAO!!!)

Remember the song "Diary?" No? Well, let me regurgitate that memory for ya!

(I'm going from memory...so these lyrics may not be completely accurate!)

I found her diary underneath the tree
And started reading about me
The words she'd written took me by surprise
You'd never read them in her eyes

They said that she had found
The love she'd waited for
Wouldn't you know it
She wouldn't show it

Then she, confronted with the writing there
Simply pretended not to care
I passed it off as just in keeping with
Her total disconcerting air

And though she tried to hide
The love that she denied
Wouldn't you know it
She wouldn't show it

And as I go through my life
I will give to her, my wife
All the sweet things I can find

I found her diary underneath the tree
And started reading about me
The words began to stick and tears to flow
Her meaning now was clear to see

The love she'd waited for
Was someone else, not me
Wouldn't you know it
She wouldn't show it

And I as I go through my life
I will wish for her, his wife
All the sweet things she can find
All the sweet things they can find.

That song is so sad!

I love RW's version of "Hallelujah" too, especially when I've overplayed JB's version. RW is my rebound guy for this song, you could say.

I am very impressed that you know how to play the grand opus that is "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." You are lucky that you don't know me, b/c the annoying 5 year old who requests hearing her fav songs over and over and over again is alive and well within me.

I thought of another sad one: "I Can't Make You Love Me" - Bonnie Raitt

I had thought of some more but my leaky memory isn't cooperating with me right now.

Hi, Geo.
It's not a sad one, but my favorite Brian McKnight song is his cover of "Crazy Love."

My selection today: "You Don't Know Me," Ray Charles.

8thMoon - Starting soon, I may not be around LL much. I thought it was appropriate to say it in this thread, since it's a thread about heartbreak. I will be singing these songs about LL as I'm sure you will long for me while playing Poison.
My mom's sick & needs help at night, so in between that, I'd often visit this site. But things are heating up professionally for me (Romance cover models are highly in demand ), so for the past few months I've had only 4 or 5 hours of sleep a night, often less. I've finally reached my breaking point with that & agreed with what my SO has been saying for months that we should pay for a caregiver every night. So once we find someone for that, I probably won't be here too often.
But what's freaky is that my SO & I had this conversation this morning, & I registered here exactly a year ago today.

Watch me instead end up spending more time here!

Jane!!!

I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom. I hate that you're leaving. In all honesty, I have a feeling that pretty soon I won't be able to spend as much time either.

I hope that you keep in touch and let me know what's going on in your world! You're one of my favoritist people here. (And the only Harlequin romance cover model I know too!)

Thanks, you're one of my favoritest people here too! I got the email, so you can delete now.

Well, we still have to find someone to cover the overnight shift, & that may take a while. We already have someone for that shift, but she only works the weekends. She may be interested in adding a day or two, but I know she won't want to add more than that. So I'll be here until we find someone, & even after that, I'm sure I'll pop in every now and then. I think it'll be funny if I end up coming here more, making this announcement akin to a Cher Farewell Tour.

Here's something to remember me by. I'm especially proud of my work in this shot.

I love this and it gave me great inspiration after two difficult break ups!!!

Boys 2 Men...


There was a time when I thought life was over and out
When you went away from me
My dying heart made it hard to breathe
Would sit in my room
Because I didn't want to have to go out
And see you walking by
One look and I'd break right down and cry
Now you say that you made a big mistake
Never meant to take your love away
But you can save your tired apologies
Cause it may seem hard to believe, but

Chorus:

I'm doing just fine
Getting along very well without you in my life
I'm doing just fine
Time made me stronger you're no longer on my mind


You were my earth
My number one priority
Gave my love to only you
Anything you'd ask of me I would do
But somewhere down the road
You feel a change in the weather and told me
That you have to journey on
A kiss in the wind and your love was gone
Now you say you never meant to play your games
Girl don't you know it's far too late
Because you let our love just fall apart
You no longer have my heart

Chorus:

When you said goodbye
I felt so all alone
There were times at night I couldn't sleep
My heart was much to weak to make it on my own
Baby after all the misery and pain you put me through
So unfair to me girl
You're no longer my world an I ain't missing you at all


Chorus:

See baby when you walked away
You didn't think that it would end up this way
But I knew you would come around someday
Just as sure as my name is Wanya

Hi Jane,

Thanks for the heads up on the Brian McKnight remake. That's one of my favorite songs and I'll be listening to it later today.

God bless you and your Mom, someone should be coming along soon for the night shift and even though I just met you, I'll miss you and hopefully your goodbye will be like the Cher Retirement Tour, never ending.

"Big Blue Spanish Sky" .. Chris Isaak

It's a big blue spanish sky,
Lay on my back and watch clouds roll by.
I've got the time to wonder why,
She left me.

It's a slow sad spanish song,
I knew the words but I sang them wrong.
The one I love has left and gone,
Without me.

Now she's gone, our world has changed.
Watchin a blue sky, thinkin of rain.

It's a slow sad spanish song,
I knew the words but I sang them wrong.
The one that I love has left and gone,
Without me.

It's a big blue spanish sky,
I lay on my back and watch clouds roll by.
I only wish I could make you cry,
Like I do.
Like I do.
Like I do

Sheryl Crow .. "Home" ..
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
verses .. G / D minor / B flat / C
"I'd like to see the Riviera .. etc" .. B flat / C / F / G / C / F / A minor
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I woke up this morning
Now I understand
What it means to give your life
To just one man
Afraid of feeling nothing
No bees or butterflies
My head is full of voices
And my house is full of lies

This is home, home
And ths is home, home
This is home

I found you standing there
When I was seventeen
Now I'm thirty-two
And I can't remember what I'd seen in you
I made a promise
Said it everyday
Now I'm reading romance novels
And I'm dreaming of yesterday

This is home, home
And ths is home, home
This is home

I'd like to see the Riviera
And slowdance underneath the stars
I'd like to watch the sun come up
In a strangers arms

This is home, home
And ths is home, home
This is home

I'm going crazy
A little at a time
And everything I wanted
Is now driving me away
I woke up this morning
To the sound of beating hearts
Mine is full of questions
And it's tearing yours apart

4+20 .. by Stephen Stills

4+20 years ago
I come into this life
The song of a woman
And a man who lived in strife
He was tired of being poor
And he wasn't into selling door to door
And he worked like the devil to be more
A different kind of poverty now upsets my soul
Night after sleepless night
I walk the floor and I want to know
Why am I so alone?
Where is my woman can I bring her home?
Have I driven her away?
Is she gone?
Morning comes to sunrise
And I'm driven to my bed
I see that it is empty
And there's devils in my head
I embrace the many colored beast
I grow weary of the torment
Can there be no peace?
And I find myself just wishing
That my life would simply cease.

"You don't know me" .. Emmylou Harris
(eddy arnold/cindy walker)

You give your hand to me and then you say hello and I can hardly speak
My heart is beating so
And anyone could tell you think you know me well
But you don't know me

No you don't know the one who dreams of you at night
And longs to kiss your lips and longs to hold you tight
I'm just a friend that's all I've ever been
But you don't know me

For I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too

For I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me and then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away and in my heart I cry

Hi Ladies (and gent)
A couple from my Post-Breakups Soundtrack Ö..

Enough of Me
Melissa Etheridge

We were all wounded in some domestic war
I found you to settle my score
You looked like father
You felt like mother
My mind told my heart
There is no other

And I gave you my soul
And every ounce of control
And I gave you my skin
And my original sin
And I gave you my pride and my side
Oh my pride, Ain't that enough?
I turned your dreams into lightning
Ain't that enough?
I held the world back for you
Ain't that enough?
I loved you past the point of dying
Ain't that enough of me for you?

I was so sure one and one gave you one
My noisy love is coming undone
Now you leave like father
Disappointed like mother
And I know in my heart
There is no other

And I gave you my soul
And every ounce of control
And I gave you my shame
And my eternal flame
And I gave you my need and my seed
Oh my need, Ain't that enough?
I turned your dreams into lightning
Ain't that enough?
I held the world back for you
Ain't that enough?
I loved you past the point of dying
Ain't that enough of me for you?

Why can't you hold on?

And I gave you my soul
And every ounce of control
And I gave you my skin
And my original sin
And I gave you my shame
And my eternal flame
And I gave you my pride
And I gave you my side
And I gave you my need and my seed
Oh my need, Ain't that enough?
I turned your dreams into lightning
Ain't that enough?
I held the world back for you
Ain't that enough?
I loved you past the point of dying
Ain't that enough of me for you?

Iím Alive
Jackson Browne

It's been a long time since I watched these lights alone
I look around my life tonight and you are gone
I might have done something to keep you if I'd known
How unhappy you had become

While I was dreaming of you
With my heart in your hands
And I was following though
With my beautiful plans

Yeah now I'm rolling down this canyon drive
With your laughter in my head
I'm gonna have to block it out somehow to survive
'cause those dreams are dead
And I'm alive

I want to go where I will never hear your name
I want to lose my sorrow and be free again
And I know I've been insane
When I think of places I could have been

But I was dreaming of you
With my heart in your hands
And I was following through
With my beautiful plans

Standing here by the highway side
Watching these trucks blow by
Inches from my face
Yeah thinking 'bout the time I've wasted
And the pleasure we once tasted
Looking up and down this road
I've been here before
Can't be here no more

Yeah now I'm rolling down California five
With your laughter in my head
I'm gonna have to block it out somehow to survive
'cause those dreams are dead
And I'm alive

Hey look at the way I believed in you
And loved you all these years
Now you can fill a swimming pool with all my salty tears
you could have told me what was in your heart
but baby you lied
I thought that it would kill me
But I'm alive
Yeah, I'm alive

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

And a tuneage trio that just make twinges in my heart when I hear themÖ..

I Shoulda Never Started Lovin You
Written by Doug Gray/George McCorkle/Tommy Caldwell

There's something in your eyes that remind me
Of all the loves I've left behind me
Looks on your face yes they tell me
That I should have never started loving you

It was true when they said that I was mean and cruel
All the loves I've had I've made them out as fools
Now the tide has turned and I'm lonely too
I should have never started loving you

I should have never started loving you
After all the things that we've been through
I could have spent my whole life with you
I should have never started loving you

You hurt me in a way that I had never felt
Sky turned so dark I thought I knew you well
I'm so lonely girl wish I could leave this world
I should have never started loving you

I should have never started loving you
After all the things that we've been through
I could have spent my whole life with you
I should have never started loving you

It was true when they said that I was mean and cruel
All the loves I've had I've made them out as fools
Now the tide has turned and I'm lonely too
I should have never started loving you

I should have never started loving you
After all the things that we've been through
I could have spent my whole life with you
I should have never started loving you
I should have never started loving you
I should have never started loving

Biggest Mistake
Mick Jagger/Keith Richards

When love comes so late, it'll really hit hard
It slams through the gate, it'll catch you off guard
Everyone said, "What a perfect love match
'Cause she is so smart, she's a hell of a catch"

I was drinking in love, gulping it down
Drifting for months on a billowing cloud
But after awhile I start to rebel
I'm back in the past and I'm raising up hell

But I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
And I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life

We'd been living together for over a year
The harmony's perfect, it rang loud and clear
But then very slowly, my nerves start to fray
Itís the little things baby, that's what they say

I acted impatient, I acted unkind
I took her for granted, I played with her mind
She didn't deserve it, but it was too late
I walked out the door, and left her to her fate

But I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
And I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life

(Whooo Whooo Whooo....)

Now I'm down in a slump and I'm eating alone
I ruined the day with some friends on the phone
I never go out, I'm becoming a grouch
I just watch the TV and I drink on the couch

But if love comes again, I'll be really surprised
I'll grab it real fast, keep it right in my sights

'Cause I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
Well I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life

Well I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
Well I think I've just made the biggest mistake of my life
Mm-hmmm

Eyes Too Blue
David Crosby/Jeff Pevar/James Raymond

She walks into a sideways rain
Hands tucked under her arms
It's cold out there
And it's cold in here

Like a sister sailing ship
Paired against the sea
She holds on
She holds on

Arms too empty
Heart too true
Voice too distant
Eyes too blue

The wet stone echoes sound to me
The footfalls hers alone
She walks on
She moves on

Dream and sweet reality
If she returns are one
And I hold on
Yes, I hold on

Arms too empty
Heart too true
Voice too distant
Eyes too blue

Arms too empty
Heart too true
Voice too distant
Eyes too blue

Arms too empty
Heart too true
Voice too distant
Eyes too blue

She walks into a sideways rain
Hands tucked under her arms
It's cold out there
And it's cold in here

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Hereís that lovely sad song from Bonnie (with Bruce Hornsby on piano!!)

I'm glad to hear you're getting some help in the Caregiver department for your mom
I know how mentally/physically/emotionally exhausting it can be when you have no backup caregiver.....
Has your sister adjusted, and mended her attitude a little re: your mom??

" Empty Rooms"
(Gary Moore/Neil Carter)

Loneliness is your only friend.
A broken heart that just won't mend
is the price you pay.

It's hard to take when love grows old.
The days are long and the nights turn cold
when it fades away.

You hope that she will change her mind,
but the days drift on and on.
You'll never know the reason why she's gone.

You see her face in every crowd.
You hear her voice, but you're still proud,
so you turn away.

You tell yourself that you'll be strong.
But your heart tells you,
this time you're wrong.

You hope that she will change her mind,
but the days drift on and on.
You'll never know the reason why she's gone.

Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
( repeated )

All alone in an empty room.
Lonliness is your only friend, hooh.
Oh, she's gone and you're at the end
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

is this going to end up one very depressing thread i wonder ??
hhmmm .. lyrics sans music .. sort of missing an important element ..
( i'll post 'empty rooms' as an mp3 file at somestage )
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
are there any humorous songs about 'heartbreak' .. ??

Actually, Happy Dragon, there is one that came to mind! A friend of mine played a Harry Nilssen (not sure if I spelled that correctly) song called "Joy" for me a few years back that was funny. He has a pretty sarcastic sense of humor. The only line I can think of off hand is:

"Joy, to the world, was a beautiful girl,
But to me Joy meant only sorrow."

You'd probably have to hear it to appreciate it!

I've got one -- not necessarily "humorous" but sure sounds happy about the whole "she's gone" thang

The Radiators Live:

Sittiní on Top of the World
(9.8mb)

Mississippi River so big and wide
Got me a woman on the other side
Now sheís gone I donít worry
Cuz Iím sittiní on top of the world

Donít like my peaches? Doncha shake my tree
If you need me baby come see about me
Now sheís gone I donít worry
Because Iím sittiní on top of the world

I saw you ( ?? ) and watch me go
Said come back baby I need you so
Now sheís gone I donít worry
Because Iím sittiní on top of the world

Girl you never told me the things you did
Ran off to L.A. kept your business hid
Now sheís gone I donít worry
Because Iím sittiní on top of the world

Mark! ( <--- trombone playerís solo )

Mississippi River so big and wide
Got me a woman on the other side
Now sheís gone I donít worry
Cuz Iím sittiní on top of the world
Now sheís gone I donít worry
Cuz Iím sittiní on top of the world
Now sheís gone I donít worry
Cuz Iím sittiní on top of the world
