The most touching songs- my top 10

Updated on September 14, 2014

What is your most touching song?

We all have songs that touches us deeply. Sometimes you cannot explain why, sometimes there is a story behind the feeling.

Most of us have had our heart broken at least once in our life ( I hope only once), by a friend, family member or a loved one. Sometimes it is you that broke your own heart by behaving badly. For whoever it was, does not matter. What did they do, does not matter. Altogether it hurts.

Here I have collected top 10 of my most touching song, which all have some kind of story. One could call this my diary.

What is your favorite song?

Thousand kisses deep- Leonard Cohen - Why can't I forgive, forget, let it be

The voice and the lyrics. What more you can ask for a great song?

I was about 18 years old when I found Leonard Cohen. At that time my English skills were not that good and I could not fully understand what was singing about. That did not matter. I knew his lyrics must be touching and powerful.

Fix you - Coldplay - Are you there, somewhere, waiting for me, waiting for me to find you

I wish. I wish it would be true. Someone would be waiting for me to "come home".

I wish someone could fix me. But it does not work that way. Love can fix you, but you have to want that.

Unintended- Muse - You promised me everything...

It is hard when that someone special has not gotten over their past relationships.

Is it really enough that someone says you could be worth it? I am too old for that. I have seen too much to believe it anymore.

Good bye my lover - James Blunt - You have been the one...the one for me. Its gone, its all gone

Sometimes it just does not work.

It is so sad when both agree it does not work regardless of the feeling they have towards each other. Been there, done that.

Forget Her - Jeff Buckley

Trust, like a whisper in a wind, gone before I blinked my eyes. It is so hard to forget someone, even though they break our hearts.

Sometimes we ignore the pain and get back together with someone that hurt us.

Tallulah - Sonata Arctica - Great Finnish metal band

This one is dedicated to my first love. Where ever you are now, I know you are happy. You have gotten all you wanted, that I could not give you.

I wish our story had a different kind of ending... but I ended up being your Tallulah...

Years after we broke up, I met my first love and he presented this song, saying it tells our story, that every time he listens to Tallulah he thinks about me.

Lonely Nights -Scorpions


I lost the love of my life because of cowardice. It must be said, that we were quite young. But deep down in my heart, even though never in my life I would admit that I am romantic, I know he could have been the one.

He was younger than I, and that made me reject him. Ever since I have regretted it. Who knows what could have happened? Well, now I never know.

But I never forget the look in his eyes. The question hanging between us :" Why do you reject me regardless all those feelings we have ?" He could not understand why I was so ashamed. Neither could I. Why did I care about what other people might think of us.

I do not blame him being so hurt, I kept our relationship hidden.

Instead of him I chose the biggest mistake of my life, who did not only broke my heart, but broke me badly.

A Million Nights- Sturm und Drang - great Finnish band

Being away from the one you love, whether it is emotional or physical distance, it hurts. Only remembering how it feels to hold them...

If you go away - Patricia Kaas

Don't go, don't leave me here.


Adagio - Lara Fabian

Wondering, waiting, missing, hoping.


Thousand times I have heard this song, and it still makes me shiver.

      Interesting musical taste. I like them! I agree, these songs really reflect the feeling of loneliness which in one way or the other can save you to overcome them.
