A Song That Really Touches Your Soul And Why Music

  • View author's info Posted on Jul 22, 2007 at 06:25 PM

    I love music and sometimes I run across a song that sums up in a few clever lyrics a deep feeling that I wouldn't have known how to express in words. It absolutely awes me when that happens.
    So I thought it would be fun to hear what kinds of songs have touched other folks like that.
    An example of that for me would be My Immortal by Evanescence... In fact the lines "These wounds won't seem to heal. This pain is just too real. There's just too much that time cannot erase" gave me the ability to see that the relationship that I had been in and trying to save for 13 yrs. was never going to get better.
    So anyway, do you have a song like that?
    One that makes you see yourself or your situation in a new light?
    Hope this isn't too sappy for the guys :)

    Voice of Hope, Inside Out, Love is Hard ... so many!!

    I love worship music so anything which really brings God in gets me.

    I love music that touches my soul which James Morrison always does!!

    for me its deffinently the song "EVERYBODY'S SINGING THAT SOUTH WEST SONG" by ICP i have dysthimic depression, so when i was real close to suicide this song pretty much sumed up how i didnt care about life, and how much the words of people who brought me to this point didnt matter anymore.

    it was pretty much my last words.................

    Some say I'm real and some say I'm fake
    But I really don't care cuz it's all too late
    You see, my mind is weak and I'm losing breath
    As I crawl along I can feel the death

    Everywhere I go I bring with me pride
    And then I pay the carny and I take a ride
    But see, the wheel is wicked and it spins me death
    So I try it again with what pride is left

    If we have to go then you can take me fast
    You see, I started under and I'm sinking fast
    And when the joker's card is missing from your deck
    Then you know the rope has finally caught my neck

    Eh, yo, don't look, now, there we go again
    It's me and the grim reaper, best of friends
    He's always hanging round waitin for me to die
    We shot a game of pool, he's not a bad guy

    "This Woman's Work" by Maxwell makes me cry every time I hear it. I don't know why it does, but it just touches like no song ever has.

    One of my favorite songs is Fly Like a Bird by Mariah Carey. It makes me feel like I can overcome a difficult situation because I'm not alone.

    I'd say my song is I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For by U2.

    I'm still looking for Mr. Right.

    Truly, Madly, Deeply by Savage Garden. This would have to be my favorite song, I love the singer's voice, the melody, but most of all the lyrics. Imagine..... finding a love like that?

    Well being in a country/souther rock band we did a lot of songs like that. I was also one of the lead singers in the band and one that we did that really touched me was "Turn the Page" by Bob Seger. Especially on the last verse when he wrote "Later in the evening as you lie awake in bed with the echo of the amplifiers ringing in your head you smoke the days last cigarette remembering what she said... now here I am on the road again there I am up on the stage and here I go playing the star again there I go... turn the page" It seem like when we were out and the miles rolled by that this song hit even closer to home. Another song that we didn't sing but I like is Jeff Healey's "Angel Eye".
