    Re: Which songs make you tear up?

    When I saw this thread when it was started, I thought I'd come up with a few because there are songs out there that will do that, but then I simply blanked when I was tyring to think of one.

    But I finally got one.

    Roy Clark's "Yesterday, When I Was Young"

    Yesterday when I was young
    The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue.
    I teased at life as if it were a foolish game,
    The way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame.
    The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned
    I'd always built to last on weak and shifting sand.
    I lived by night and shunned the naked light of the day
    And only now I see how the years ran away.
    [ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/r/roy_clark/yesterday_when_i_was_young.html ]
    Yesterday when I was young
    So many happy songs were waiting to be sung,
    So many wild pleasures lay in store for me
    And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see.
    I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out,
    I never stopped to think what life was all about
    And every conversation I can now recall
    Concerned itself with me and nothing else at all.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Yesterday the moon was blue
    And every crazy day brought something new to do.
    I used my magic age as if it were a wand
    And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond.
    The game of love I played with arrogance and pride
    And every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died.
    The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away
    And only I am left on stage to end the play.

    There are so many songs in me that won't be sung,
    I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue.
    The time has come for me to pay for
    Yesterday when I was young...

    How about: Bubba Shot The Jukebox?  'It was playing such a sad song, Bubba just couldn't stand to listen to it'.
