Song Lyrics That Make Me Cry Round 1

Let's see if I can start some sort of regular feature on this blog!  I think I'm going to go with .... song lyrics!

Ya know how when you go through a breakup, suddenly every song on the radio takes on a new meaning, as if it totally relates to your situation?  After losing my girls, and going through this infertility BS, yup, I'm doing that same thing.

So, here we are, with song lyrics that can make me cry.

First - Won't Go Home Without You by Maroon 5.  In particular, the chorus.  Every time I hear it now, I'm right back in that hospital bed, deciding whether to die with my girls, or to go home without them.

Every night you cry yourself to sleep
Thinking: "Why does this happen to me?
Why does every moment have to be so hard?"
Hard to believe that

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

And as a bonus track, this being the first installment and all, I give you Maybe This Time from Cabaret!
Maybe this time, I'll be lucky
Maybe this time, he'll stay
Maybe this time
For the first time
Love won't hurry away

He will hold me fast
I'll be home at last
Not a loser anymore
Like the last time
And the time before

Everybody loves a winner
So nobody loved me;
'Lady Peaceful,' 'Lady Happy,'
That's what I long to be
All the odds are in my favor
Something's bound to begin
It's got to happen, happen sometime
Maybe this time I'll win


  1. Guaranteed tear jerker:
    I would die for that by Kelley Coffrey (?)
    It's about her desire to have a baby and infertility.
    Definitely hard to listen to for me....

  2. I'm gasping for air over here. So perfect, and yet so fucking miserable.

  3. maybe this time... yeah I definitely agree with that one. I haven't heard the other one


Please share your thoughts! It makes me feel like I have friends.
