Begin again in the night, let's sway again tonight.
Your arm on my shoulder, your cheek against mine.
Where can we go, when will we find that, we know.

Best of Times - Dream Theater

Makes me feel weak inside every time I hear it.
Quote by Snowblind 911





maybe it's because of your description, or the fact that it's 1:30am here, or both, i can't stop giggling.


Sometimes girls say that too...

Leper Messiah - Metallica

Not specifically about losing a parent, but written about religion because his mom died because of her beliefs in Christian Science.
^^The above is a Cryptic Metaphor^^

I know that was probably a joke, but I was under the impression that TS has lost a parent, and your post wasn't exactly sensitive to that

Shame on you sir

There are other Metallica songs on this topic, like Until it Sleeps. Perhaps Mama Said aswell, not sure.

AHHHHH!!!!! It's a Tommy Emmanuel song originally by Chet Atkins and it would be perfect for self pity... It's one of the few that he sings on. DAMMIT I can't think of it! I'll give anyone an E-puppy if they can think of it!

He died 3 years ago last Friday, but I never really made any sort of playlist to get me through Father's Day. God knows all my friends are celebrating with their fathers, so I kinda just chill at home


Anyway, thank you everyone for the suggestions

First thing I thought of when I read the title was Judith by A Perfect Circle, though its about Maynard's mom.

My Father's Shoes by Level 42. A song not only about losing a father, but also about how sometimes money and success cannot replace family.

Sad to hear that man. Not having a father there throughout your life is a tough thing.

Guernica - Brand New

Its actually about his grandfather dying of cancer, but i think it works

Yea, I mean, I dealt with it early on. He was diagnosed with a terminal disease about 5 years before that. And he was in the Navy before that, usually on 6 month departures. But it still sucks.
Im starting to cope with it better. My first year of college is coming up in August, so I hope that will help me mature a little

Alive - Pearl Jam

IIRC the song is about Vedder never knowing his biological father until he dies, and his mother tells him when he was 13...may suit, idkno. Just my 2 cents.

Possibaly Daddy's Gone - Glasvegas? not a fan of the band personally, but yeah...

Dream Theater - A Change of Seasons

The fact that it's about losing a mother rather than a father doesn't change the fact that it's a much better song than Best of Times

This from a country who're trying to make up for being late for the last two world wars by being really early for the next one?
