The 20 Most Upbeat Songs About Death
This post has been weeks in the works, a promise ever since I wrote a post a few weeks back on the death of a friend. Sorry, we have been pretty busy and I have just gotten my head back above water. We always struggle with the best format to share song lists on the website. We have done text with links to the youtube video, we have used iTunes playlists, we have used a playlist website that went under. We have no idea what the best option is!

The stolen glances, broken threads The visions looming in our heads The years spent running parallel To everything that might've been. Oh, if he really does exist Why did he desert me In my hour of need I truly am indeed Alone again, naturally.

And through it all she offers me protection A lot of love and affection Whether I'm right or wrong. Since you went away the days grow long And soon I'll hear old winter song But i miss you most of all my darling When autumn leaves start to fall.

The anniversary of his death. His birthday. These are the dates when I grieve most consciously for my father. I want to think about my father, who I lost more than 11 years ago this year.
