    I like Kansas’ “Dust in the Wind”

    I close my eyes, only for a moment and the moment’s gone
    All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
    Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind

    Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
    All we do, crumbles to the ground tho we refuse to see
    Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind

    Don’t hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
    It slips away, all your money won’t another minute buy
    Dust in the wind . . . all we are is dust in the wind.

    I know there are plenty of great songs out there, this just happens to have a special meaning for me. A good friend of mine passed away when it was first out in the mid-80’s. My friend, my hairdresser, Terry. What an awesome energy she was (is)!

    Boy, this has been one weird day. An acquaintance of mine passed away on Sunday and his funeral was today. Right after the funeral, I turned on the radio and heard the song “Angel” (which AriesMoon posted here) and it was the first time I had ever heard it. Right away I thought of Roger. Then I got to work, and it was on the radio AGAIN, but on a different station. The odd thing is my town only has two radio stations! So then I came to this thread, and what do I see? The lyrics to “Angel”. :(

    I have to think that I wasn’t the only one in town who thought of Roger today during the playing of that song, since he was a prominent attorney in our town. It just kind of blew me away.

    The other thing I wanted to say was that I always loved the song “With One More Look At You” from the Barbra Streisand movie “A Star is Born”. I don’t have the lyrics, but that song always makes me cry. It’s so very touching. She sings it after her husband (Kris Kristofferson) gets killed.

    “With One More Look At You”

    (Words and music by Paul Williams & KennyAsher, 1976)

    With one more look at you
    I could learn to tame the clouds And let the sun shine through
    Leave a troubled past and I might start anew
    I’ll solve the mysteries if your the prize
    Refresh these tired eyes

    With one more look at you
    I might overcome the anger that I’ve learned to know
    Find a piece of mind I lost so long ago
    Your gentle touch has made me strong again
    And I belong again

    For when you look at me
    I’m everything and more that i had dreamed I’d be
    My spirit feels a promise – I won’t be alone
    We’ll love and live more
    Love and live forever

    With one more look at you
    I’d learn to change the stars And change our fortunes too
    I’d have the constellations paint your portrait too
    So all the world might share this wondrous sight
    The world could end each night

    With one more look at you
    With one more look at you
    I want one more look at you

    Hi all…..I’m still pretty new to the group, so I’ll give a brief intro of myself. I have been a fan of JE’s for about a year. I lost my grandmother when I was 5 yrs old. As a child, I would always tell my parents that my grandma was with us (only to be reprimanded and told not to talk about her) To this day, I still believe that a persons loved ones are with them even after they crossover. I still talk to my grandma and feel that she is with me every day. I feel JE has helped a lot of people to open their minds, and I’m glad to be a part of this group where everyone is so excepted and open.

    Here is my favorite LAD/ADC Song…….its by the cheezy 80’s group, the Escape Club……but its still a great song :)

    OVER MOUNTAINS
    OVER TREES
    OVER OCEANS
    OVER SEAS
    ACROSS THE DESERT
    I’LL BE THERE

    IN A WHISPER ON THE WIND
    ON THE SMILE OF A NEW FRIEND
    JUST THINK OF ME
    AND I’LL BE THERE

    DON’T BE AFRAID, OH MY LOVE
    I’LL BE WATCHING YOU FROM ABOVE
    AND I’D GIVE ALL THE WORLD TONIGHT
    TO BE WITH YOU
    BECAUSE I’M ON YOUR SIDE
    AND I STILL CARE
    I MAY HAVE DIED
    BUT I’VE GONE NOWHERE
    JUST THINK OF ME
    AND I’LL BE THERE

    ON THE EDGE OF A WAKING DREAM
    OVER RIVERS, OVER STREAMS
    THROUGH WIND AND RAIN
    I’LL BE THERE

    ACROSS THE WIDE AND OPEN SKY
    THOUSANDS OF MILES I’D FLY
    TO BE WITH YOU
    I’LL BE THERE

    DON’T BE AFRAID, OH MY LOVE
    I’LL BE WATCHING YOU FROM ABOVE
    AND I’D GIVE ALL THE WORLD TONIGHT
    TO BE WITH YOU
    BECAUSE I’M ON YOUR SIDE
    AND I STILL CARE
    I MAY HAVE DIED
    BUT I’VE GONE NOWHERE
    JUST THINK OF ME
    AND I’LL BE THERE
    JUST THINK OF ME
    AND I’LL BE THERE

    IN THE BREATH OF A WIND THAT SIGHS
    OH, THERE’S NO NEED TO CRY
    JUST THINK OF ME
    AND I’LL BE THERE

    DON’T BE AFRAID, OH MY LOVE
    I’LL BE WATCHING YOU FROM ABOVE
    AND I’D GIVE ALL THE WORLD TONIGHT
    TO BE WITH YOU
    BECAUSE I’M ON YOUR SIDE
    AND I STILL CARE
    I MAY HAVE DIED
    BUT I’VE GONE NOWHERE
    JUST THINK OF ME
    AND I’LL BE THERE
    JUST THINK OF ME
    AND I’LL BE THERE

    WHEN YOU THINK OF ME
    I’LL BE THERE

    Oh yes, absolutely. I’m a Streisand fan from “way back” LOL. From the same soundtrack, I also liked “Woman in the MOON“!! LOL

    I heard this one this morning on my way to have breakfast with my mom. Needless to say I started to cry as I realized that it’s so true.

    I’m Already There
    (Richie McDonald/G.Baker/F.Myers)
    sung by Lonestar

    He called her on the road
    From a lonely cold hotel room
    Just to hear her say I love you one more time
    And when he heard the sound
    Of the kids laughing in the background
    He had to wipe away a tear from his eye
    A little voice came on the phone
    And said “Daddy when you coming home”
    He said the first thing that came to his mind

    I’m already there
    Take a look around
    I’m the sunshine in your hair
    I’m the shadow on the ground
    I’m the whisper in the wind
    I’m your imaginary friend
    And I know I’m in your prayers
    Oh I’m already there

    She got back on the phone
    Said I really miss you darling
    Don’t worry about the kids they’ll be alright
    Wish I was in your arms
    Lying right there beside you
    But I know that I’ll be in your dreams tonight
    And I’ll gently kiss your lips
    Touch you with my fingertips
    So turn out the light and close your eyes

    I’m already there
    Don’t make a sound
    I’m the beat in your heart
    I’m the moonlight shining down
    I’m the whisper in the wind
    And I’ll be there until the end
    Can you feel the love that we share
    Oh I’m already there

    We may be a thousand miles apart
    But I’ll be with you wherever you are

    I’m already there
    Take a look around
    I’m the sunshine in your hair
    I’m the shadow on the ground
    I’m the whisper in the wind
    And I’ll be there until the end
    Can you feel the love that we share
    Oh I’m already there
    Oh I’m already
    There

    Peggy, that’s such a “coincidence!” … I’ve been reading this thread for days and listening more closely to music as a result. Jumped in my car the other night cuz the neighbor’s pipes were flooding her house. The radio came on for 2 blocks I heard the chorus to this song “I’m already there” and said, “That’s for me!!” But in all the water-emergency, I forgot the song – hadn’t ever heard it before. The next day I called the radio station to ask about the song with “Almost” or “Already” in the title and tried to describe it. They came back with Mariah Carey something or other. That wasn’t it, so I let it go. Then here you go writing all the lyrics! Thanks for posting it, that’s really special to me.

    This is a beautiful thread. I am touched by so many of the songs I have forgotten about, but particularly never will forget Angel, by Sarah MacLaughlin. My 22 year old son died of suicide in April, and I thought this song summed up how he felt and how I can get comfort knowing he is in the “arms of an angel”. Joan

    I fell in love with this one so much that I created my own special pictures of my family members who have crossed over and made a flash movie of them with this song playing in the background.

    Remember Me This Way
    Jordan Hill

    Every now and then
    We find a special friend
    Who never lets us down

    Who understands it all
    Reaches out each time we fall
    You’re the best friend that I’ve found

    I know you can’t stay
    A part of you will never ever go away
    Your heart will stay

    I’ll make a wish for you
    And hope it will come true
    That life would just be kind
    To such a gentle mind
    If you lose your way
    Think back on yesterday
    Remember me this way
    Remember me this way

    I don’t need eyes to see
    The love you bring to me
    No matter where I go

    And I know that you’ll be there
    Forever more a part of me
    you’re everywhere

    I’ll always care

    I’ll make a wish for you
    And hope it will come true
    That life would just be kind
    To such a gentle mind
    If you lose your way
    Think back on yesterday
    Remember me this way
    Remember me this way

    And I’ll be right behind your shoulder watching you
    I’ll be standing by your side and all you do
    And I won’t ever leave
    As long as you believe
    You just believe

    I’ll make a wish for you
    And hope it will come true
    That life would just be kind
    To such a gentle mind
    If you lose your way
    Think back on yesterday
    Remember me this way
    Remember me this way

    This Way…

    This is also the song that John mentions in “One Last Time”

    “Softly, I will leave you softly” – played on the Sinatra Family Album website when FS died. It was a tear-jerker.

    OK let me try …

    I think the reason we have contact with loved ones that have passed on is to remind us that we are hear on Earth for a reason and we need to stayed focused on life and gain what we came her for.

    If I crossed over, the song that I would definately dedicate to my children (all 6 of them) and pretty much the message I ever heard from anyone that has crossed over is:

    ………………………………….. DRUM ROLL …………………………………….

    “I Hope You Dance”

    I hope you never lose your sence of wonder,
    You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
    May you never take one single breath for granted,
    GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
    I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
    Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
    Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,

    I hope you dance, I hope you dance
    I hope you dance, I hope you dance

    I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
    Never settle for the path of least resistance,
    Livin’ might mean takin’ chances but there worth takin’,
    Lovin’ might be a mistake but it’s worth makin’,
    Don’t let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
    When you come close to sellin’ out reconsider,
    Give the heavens above more than just a passin’ glance,
    And when you get the chance to sit it out or dance,

    I hope you dance, I hope you dance
    Ihope you dance, I hope you dance
    (Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along, Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those have gone.)

    I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean, When ever one door closes I hope one more opens,
    Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,

    DANCE …. Ihope you dance.
    I hope you dance, I hope you dance
    I hope you dance, I hope you dance
    ( Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
    Tell me who wants to look back on their years and for wonder where those years have gone.)

    I have always loved this thread so I’m resurrecting it for the new members to see and possibly contribute to!

    You Are Not Alone

    sung by Michael Jackson
    Written and Composed by R. Kelly

    Another day has gone
    I’m still all alone
    How could this be
    You’re not here with me
    You never said goodbye
    Someone tell me why
    Did you have to go
    And leave my world so cold

    Everyday I sit and ask myself
    How did love slip away
    Something whispers in my ear and says
    That you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though you’re far away
    I am here to stay

    But you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though we’re far apart
    You’re always in my heart
    But you are not alone

    All alone,
    ‘Why, oh

    Just the other night
    I thought I heard you cry
    Asking me to come
    And hold you in my arms
    I can hear your prayers
    Your burdens I will bear
    But first I need your hand
    Then forever can begin

    Everyday I sit and ask myself
    How did love slip away

    Something whispers in my ear and says
    That you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though you’re far away
    I am here to stay

    For you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though we’re far apart
    You’re always in my heart
    For you are not alone
