    Favorite "Comfort' Songs

    So because I feel like burning the midnight oil tonight....I should have been a radio jockey in some all night station ...WKRS-GYPSY .... ....I send this next song out across the night skies and hope it touches those of you who need it the most................

    When you’re weary, feeling small,
    When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
    I’m on your side. When times get rough
    And friends just can’t be found,
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down.
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down.

    When you’re down and out,
    When you’re on the street,
    When evening falls so hard
    I will comfort you.
    I’ll take your part.
    When darkness comes
    And pain is all around,
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down.
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down.

    Sail on silvergirl,
    Sail on by.
    Your time has come to shine.
    All your dreams are on their way.
    See how they shine
    If you need a friend
    I’m sailing right behind.

    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind.
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind.

    Re: Favorite "Comfort' Songs

    Good choice Gypsy! Love that song.
    Here's one that goosebumps me requiring many sighs.


    The Long And Winding Road


    The long and winding road
    that leads to your door
    will never disappear
    I've seen that road before
    It always leads me her
    Lead me to you door

    The wild and windy night
    that the rain washed away
    Has left a pool of tears
    crying for the day
    Why leave me standing here
    let me know the way

    Many times I've been alone
    and many times I've cried
    Any way you'll never know
    the many ways I've tried

    But still they lead me back
    to the long winding road
    You left me standing here
    a long long time ago
    Don't leave me waiting here
    lead me to your door

    But still they lead me back
    to the long winding road
    You left me standing here
    a long long time ago
    Don't leave me waiting here
    lead me to your door
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    There's a calm surrender to the rush of day
    When the heat of the rolling world can be turned away
    An enchanted moment, and it sees me through
    It's enough for this restless warrior just to be with you

    And can you feel the love tonight
    It is where we are
    It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
    That we got this far
    And can you feel the love tonight
    How it's laid to rest
    It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
    Believe the very best

    There's a time for everyone if they only learn
    That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn
    There's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors
    When the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours
    I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow

    Re: Favorite "Comfort' Songs

    You Needed Me

    I cried a tear
    You wiped it dry
    I was confused
    You cleared my mind
    I sold my soul
    You bought it back for me
    And held me up and gave me dignity
    Somehow you needed me.

    Chorus
    You gave me strength

    To stand alone again
    To face the world
    Out on my own again
    You put me high upon a pedestal
    So high that I could almost see eternity
    You needed me
    You needed me

    And I can't believe it's you I can't believe it's true
    I needed you and you were there
    And I'll never leave, why should I leave
    I'd be a fool
    'Cause I've finally found someone who really cares

    You held my hand
    When it was cold
    When I was lost
    You took me home
    You gave me hope
    When I was at the end
    And turned my lies
    Back into truth again
    You even called me friend

    You needed me
    You needed me
    I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow

    Re: Favorite "Comfort' Songs

    Funny how "comfort" songs are also (maybe moreso) Love songs.

    So ................... in keeping with MD's favorite subject ..................


    You'll remember me when the west wind moves
    Upon the fields of barley
    You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
    As we walk in fields of gold

    So she took her love, for to gaze awhile
    Upon the fields of barley
    In his arms she fell as her hair came down
    Among the fields of gold

    Will you stay with me, will you be my love
    Among the fields of barley
    We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
    As we lie in fields of gold

    See the west wind move like a lover so
    Upon the fields of barley
    Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
    Among the fields of gold

    I never made promises lightly
    And there have been some that I've broken
    But I swear in the days still left
    We'll walk in fields of gold
    We'll walk in fields of gold

    Many years have passed since those summer days
    Among the fields of barley
    See the children run as the sun goes down
    Among the fields of gold

    You'll remember me when the west wind moves
    Upon the fields of barley
    You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
    When we walked in fields of gold

    Fields of Gold by Sting

    Jeff - re: Bridge of Sighs - One of my favorites too.

    Got to float under the Bridge and walk it in Venice in '75 and could not get that song out of my head. The feeling is NOT comfortable in the least! The guy who sang on the video was OK but the great loss is James Dewar who vocals are unmatched in rock

    Had a chance to see Trower locally, but I missed it. Big mistake.

    Theme song from Lonesome Dove

    Lonesome Dove

    Lonesome Dove
    I hear your cry
    And if I had wings to fly
    I'de join you in your restless flight
    Theres no place for a Lonesome Dove to rest tonight

    Here in the Blues
    Heart Like a Lonesome Dove, Far away from his true love
    He could not find his mate in flight
    Theres no place for a Lonesome Dove tonight

    Wandering wandering fly on and on
    His song to sing
    Searching for his long lost love
    Must he always be a Lonesome Dove
    Ride Cowboys and Bold out hearts
    Riding for a long lost cause
    Searching for the one true light
    Our hearts feel
    Like a Lonesome Dove tonight

    I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow

    Re: Favorite "Comfort' Songs

    hmm...tough to pick just one...

    John Lennon's ...Imagine
    or.....Willie nelson's...Whisky River (take my mind) hahaha

    Seriously, tho; when I'm 'down' I tend to go for classical...usually Mozart's 'Marriage of figaro'
    When you get into a tight place and everything goes against
    you till it seems you could not hold on a minute longer,
    never give up then for that is just the place and time that
    the tide will turn.

    He's not Heavy He's My Brother
    For my Dad and Husband both are Boys Town Alumni (deceased)


    "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother"

    The road is long, with many a winding turn
    That leads us to who knows where, who knows where
    But I'm strong, strong enough to carry him
    He ain't heavy - he's my brother

    So on we go, his welfare is my concern
    No burden is he to bare, we'll get there
    For I know he would not encumber me
    He ain't heavy - he's my brother

    If I'm laden at all, I'm laden with sadness
    That everyone's heart isn't filled with gladness of love for one another
    It's a long long road from which there is no return
    While we're on our way to there, why not share
    And the load, it doesn't weigh me down at all
    He ain't heavy - he's my brother
    He ain't heavy - he's my brother, he's my brother, he's my brother

    By The River
