It's a little too late


It’s a little too late
I’m a little too gone,
A little too tired of this hangin’ on
So I’m letting go while I’m still strong enough to.........

Everything But The Girl "Walking Wounded", the entire album!

Off Topic: Several mentions of "Everybody Hurts"....... I was watching REM at Glastonbury a few years ago, just after Jean Eavis had died. They dedicated that song to her, and we watched Michael Eavis (who was standing just in front of us) slowly fall to pieces as they played.
100, 000 pairs of eyes, and not one of them dry!
For me, that particular song will be about losing someone to death, rather than separation.

Woman in Chains - Tears for Fears


Woman in chains -- wow, that takes me back! Haven't heard that one in yonks. And that Cutting Crew song can reduce me to tears if I hear it late at night.

"See The Sun" by Dido reminds me of my One Great Love... It just fit.

I love Gloomy Sunday AKA 'the suicide song' and also NIN 'Something I can never have' but I'm pretty shocked no-one's mentioned one of the greatest break-up songs ever written and also a song that even the notoriously cynical Richie Edwards, of Manic Street Preachers fame, was once moved to declare a beautiful moment in music.

BLACK -- PEARL JAM

Hey... oooh...
Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did.
All five horizons revolved around her soul
As the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn

Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore
And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds
Of what was everything.
Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

I take a walk outside
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear?
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head
I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
How quick the sun can drop away

And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
Of what was everything?
All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I'll be... yeah...
Uh huh... uh huh... ooh...

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life,
I know you'll be a sun in somebody else's sky, but why
Why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine

Aah... uuh..

Too doo doo too, too doo doo [many times until fade]

Recent split up, emotions were high.....

First was "Fade to Black" by Metallica,

Then "Ohne Diche" by Rammstein,

Then back to Metallica for "Wasting my hate".


All of which have meaning if you look at the lyrics.....

People can say what they like of heavy metal, but there's not another genre in existence that can express any given emotion at any given time, and in such a powerful way.

Cant think of anything good to copy n paste into here.. pity like...

However when i split from my partner i just had to get on with life. The odd tune on the radio made me think of her but little else. Was just glad she had gone an taken all her nonsense with her.

From a long long time ago but still a song that brings me to tears every time I hear it.

The wounds on your hands never seem to heal
I thought all I needed was to believe

Here am I, a lifetime away from you
The blood of christ, or the beat of my heart
My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes

Senseless years thunder by
Millions are willing to give their lives for you
Does nothing live on?

Learning to cope with feelings aroused in me
My hands in the soil, buried inside of myself
My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes in you once again

I'll go walking in circles
While doubting the very ground beneath me
Trying to show unquestioning faith in everything
Here am I, a lifetime away from you
The blood of christ, or a change of heart

My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes
My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes in you once again

David Sylvian and Ryuichi Sakamoto

sorry to be morbid but when my son died of cot death the wife could not face hearing when a child is born [matt monroe].
she was a good singer and made a record for her church when she was still at school, a recording of it was played at her funeral,the record going with her. i destroyed the recording.

I should think "Hit the road, Jack" is most suitable.
Strider mentioned Ohne Dich (Bambi, what you quote is quite a bit lost in translation) but that is the agony before breaking up, usually. Once the decision has been taken, it is "I can see clearly now" (Holly Cole). Or, if Jack doesn't want to hit the road fast enough, it is"Sail away" time for me.

Sometimes, rarely, but it has happened we are "You're my mate" (Righ Said Fred).

P.S.Hey, if someone needs some TLC with a twist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-qslILPDmc

"Monsters" by Band of Horses - not for the title! But the lyrics - "if I am lost, it's only for a little while" :)
