Joey (Sugarland)

What if I said yes
What if I’d gone out that night
What if you’d turned left
Everything would’ve turned out alright
What if I’d spoke up
What’d if I’d took the keys
What if I had tried a little harder instead of always trying to please

Joey I’m so sorry
Oh oh can you hear me
Joey I’m so sorry Read more

5 Quotes on Death to Live By

The death of someone we love is an emotionally devastating experience. The pain can’t be simply put into words and we’re oftentimes left with so many questions. We feel confused and this is normal. This could be the reason why eulogies are so difficult to deliver. That is because not only are we to contend with our grief on a personal level, but we’d also have to stand in front of people who feel the same way while trying to make sense to them what just happened when we ourselves might still have no clue. However, people depend on our strength, especially in this most trying time. In a time of internal turmoil, sometimes, we must be the ones people have to depend on or else everybody won’t be able to stand what little ground they have. Read more

5 Things You Should Do When Consoling Someone Who is Grieving

Grief is a very complicated process to go through and people are almost completely broken by it. The sheer pain itself can stretch a person’s sanity to its limits and it’s a very agonizing thing to feel, let alone to witness. This is why approaching a friend who is in the middle of grieving can be a very sensitive subject. Oftentimes, we decide to let people be and let them deal with the grief in their own privacy, but to some, the thought of simply leaving a friend or a family member alone in a time like this is sort of an act of betrayal. A grieving friend can feel so utterly spent that they just would need somebody to lean on. And sometimes, this task may fall on you. Read more

Wind Beneath My Wings (Bette Midler)

Ohhhh, oh, oh, oh, oh. It must have been cold there in my shadow, To never have sunlight on your face. You were content to let me shine, that’s your way. You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain. Read more

Nothing compares to you (Sinead O’Connor)

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues
‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you Read more
