Weight of the World- Black Rebel Motorcycle club

Bit of an odd one maybe....

This is more than I wanted,
Take me out of the dark, I roam there,
Cold and black, you're out of touch, yeah,
Lightly falling through a whisper, you're scared.

It's the weight of the world,
I know, as I struggle to be...whole.
It's the weight of the world, I know,
As you were mine, and we will find...

One that tends to get me is Jeff Buckley's live version of "Hallelujah" from "Mystery White Boy."

If you haven't heard the song, stop what you're doing now. Go to iTunes and buy the version on "Grace" and this live version. It is simply one of the most beautiful things you'll ever here.

Then consider on the live version he included these lyrics before drowning and leaving the world WAY too soon.

Oh mother, i can feel the soil falling over my head
And as i climb into an empty bed - oh well, enough said
I know it's over still i cling, i don't know where else i can go, over and over...
Oh mother, i can feel the soil falling over my head
See the sea it wants to take me, the knife wants to slit (cut) me
Do you think you can help me?

Sad veiled bride please be happy - handsome groom give her room
Loud loutish lover treat her kindly though she needs you
More than she loves you - and i know it's over - still i cling
I don't know where else i can go - over and over.....
Oh mother, i can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh mother, i can feel the soil falling over my head

It's a clip of a Smiths song, I believe, called "I Know it's Over."

Then keep in mind Buckley inserted the lyrics between his own the lines "Every breath we drew was Hallelujah" and "Well, maybe there's a God above."

I usually don't cry while listening to songs, but many tug at my heart.

Peter Gabriel - Biko hit me really hard today though...such a sad story

These songs move me like no others.
They don't always make me cry, but they can under certain circumstances.


The Rain Song - Led Zeppelin
Beautiful - Gordon Lightfoot
If - Bread
Can't Help Falling In Love - Elvis
Sweet Surrender - Tim Buckley
Kite - U2


There are many others, but these are the main ones that bring me to my knees every single time
