Songs for survival

I find music to be very therapeutic with me. What are some of your favorite coping songs?

For instance, a good song to wallow to is:
Cold Desert - by Kings of Leon (http://tinyurl.com/colddesert)
Features the lyrics, "No one ever carried my load/I'm too young to feel this old"

Another song I like is also melancholic, but with definite attitude. Lyrics begin
"I want to be someone else or I'll explode" but by the end of the song there's a phrase that goes "You want me?/F---ing well come and find me/I'll be waiting/With a gun and a pack of sandwiches/I'm ready".
My own take of the song is of a guy on the precipice of life who says to fate: come and get me, then. I'll fight to the end. The attitude gets to me.
Talk Show Host - by Radiohead (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeWCZpTTvdc)

So, again, what are some of YOUR coping and survival songs? The can be songs to cry to, songs to rage to, songs to inspire, songs to empower, etc.

INVINCIBLE

Pat Benatar

"This bloody road remains a mystery
This sudden darkness fills the air
What are we waiting for?
Won't anybody help us?
What are we waiting for?
We can't afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It's a do or die situation
We will be invincible!

This shattered dream you cannot justify
We're gonna scream until were satisfied
What are we running for?
We've got the right to be angry
What are we running for?
When there's no where we can run to anymore

We can't afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It's a do or die situation
We will be invincible
And with the power of conviction
There is no sacrifice
It's a do or die situation
We will be invincible!

Won't anybody help us?
What are we running for?
When there's no where, no where we can run to anymore

We can't afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It's a do or die situation
We will be invincible
And with the power of conviction
There is no sacrifice
It's a do or die situation
We will be invincible!"

Sing it loud and sing it proud!

I love music, I listen to all kinds but here are some of my favs. The fray- How to save a life. We are the champions, The climb-Miley Cirrus, Joe Walsh-One Day at a Time- his story of his personal struggle with alcoholism, Love Hurts-Nazareth, Michael Buble-Lost,I am 51 years old, when I listen to music from the 70's, especially my favorites, it brings back the intense emotions that I used to feel as teen. Wish I could write and play music.

My favorite group in Branson the Haygoods recorded this song. It is also performed by Simple Plan, it's called How Could This Happen To Me. The words describe how I have felt at my lowest.

Well - my iTunes is loaded with SOOO much music and almost all of it I am crazy about (the rest I really like a lot)...
When I am really stressed I will put my iPod on and listen to Bryan Akipa - Native American Flute music. VERY relaxing.
Sometimes I will listed to Chanting of the Mystic Heart - Sufi chanting.

THE HAPPENING

Diana Ross and The Supremes

"Hey life look at me, I can see the reality
Cause when you shook me, took me out of my world
I woke up, suddenly I just woke up to the happening.

When you find that you left the future behind
Cause when you got a tender love you don-t
Take care of, then you better beware of the happening.

One day you-re up, then you turn around
You find your world is tumbling down
It happened to me and it can happen to you.

I was sure, I felt secure, until love took a detour
Yeah, riding high on top of the world
It happened, suddenly it just happened.

I saw my dreams torn apart, when love walked away from my heart
And when you lose that precious love you need to guide you
Something happens inside you, the happening.

Now I see life for what it is
It-s not all dreams, it-s not all bliss
It happened to me and it can happen to you
Once!

Is it real, is it fake, is this game of life a mistake
Cause when I lost the love I thought was mine
For certain, suddenly I started hurting.

I saw the light too late, when that fickle finger of fate
Yeah came and broke my pretty balloon
I woke up, suddenly I just woke up to the happening.

So sure, I felt secure, until love took a detour
Cause when you got a tender love you don-t
Take care of, then you better beware of the happening."

...And, keep your doctor's appointments!

WHen I had to cut off my hair for treatments, if found this song to be conforting to me.... Its by India Arie and its called, I AM NOT MY HAIR... this verse was written for Robyn on Good Morning America

Breast Cancer and Chemotherapy
Took away her crown and glory
She promised God if she was to survive
She would enjoy everyday of her life ooh
On national television
Her diamond eyes are sparkling
Bald headed like a full moon shining
Singing out to the whole wide world like HEY...

I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am not your expectations no no
I am not my hair
I ma not this skin
I am a soul that lives within

I depend on music for support constantly. It is amazing how much it can change your mood of help you vent by screaming the lyrics to a song. Hmm..let me think of some of my favorites.

MONTY Are I - Metropolis, Only the Weak

Landsdowne - See You Again

Damone - When You Live

The Fray - How to Save a Life, Heaven Forbid

Hanson - Watch Over Me, Blue Sky

Flogging Molly - Laura

Jack's Mannequin - Swim, Spinning

+44 - When Your Heart Stops Beating

HERO

Mariah Carey

"There's a hero If you look inside your heart You don't have to be afraid Of what you are There's an answer If you reach into your soul And the sorrow that you know Will melt away

And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you

It's a long road When you face the world alone No one reaches out a hand For you to hold You can find love If you search within yourself And the emptiness you felt Will disappear

And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you

Lord knows Dreams are hard to follow But don't let anyone Tear them away Hold on There will be tomorrow In time You'll find the way

And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you"

Even if you live alone, like me, "a hero lies in you!"

If you go to link below, you can hear the song as you read the lyrics

http://csn.cancer.org/user/112518/view/expressions?page=3

Imagine” John Lennon 1971

This is a dedication to all cancer survivors & to the memory of the ones who have passed.
(I modified some of the lyrics below to reflect the hope towards a cure for cancer)

Imagine there's no cancer
It's easy if you try
No hell to go thru
Only a path to peace
Imagine all the people
Living without fear

Imagine there's no chemo
It isn't hard to do
No one would suffer or die
And no surgery too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no deadly tumors
I wonder if you can
No need for sorrow or tears
All of us joining hands
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the joy

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

I love your version of Imagine some friends are having a benefit for me and asked me to sing a couple of songs looking for some pertinent and fairly easy to learn. The benefit is on the 22nd of June so they can't be too hard. I play and sing OK probably sng better than play at this point. Any suggestions would help. I kind of got put on the spot and it grew. I don't mind but I hgave short time. (for the songs that is) everything else is going great. I have 4 brain tumers and I am takin my last radiation treatment Monday then off everything for a month. So I hope I feel good for Friday.
Thanks

I love Peter Gabriel's song "Don't Give Up"...but just seeing it here made my eyes well up. It's what I constantly want to say to my mom, who sees her death coming faster and faster, whereas we don't actually have an "expiration date" on her....I want her to 'please don't give up/rest your head/you worry too much/it's gonna be alright'. Okay, crying now...have to go!

Hi AkAngel,
That is so sweet. You are a great daughter. You are an awesome caregiver. I recently lost my dad to esophageal cancer with mets to the liver on 3/9/10. I too love to listen to music. My dad received these relaxation tapes when he was dx'd. We got them from the HR Bloch Association. They sent us two great books on fighting the battle with cancer, Cancer there is hope, and a wonderful cd...all for free! He loved all of these gifts. He faithfully listened to his relaxation cd. I have a few songs that we played at my dad's memorial service. How Great Thou Art, My Way, and Amazing Grace. They all bring tears to my eyes and give me goose bumps. I also love a country music song by I think Keith Urban....Cryin for Me. Hope my experience helps you to know that you are not and never will be alone. Let us know how you are all doing.
Tina

Thank you...I've read many of your posts and you give a lot to this board. I came to CSN to get advice and help, but sometimes just reading other people's experiences help me know I'm not alone. My mom is often to antsy to just sit/lay down and listen to music, but I do a lot of listening I guess for the both of us. (((hugs)))

Hey AK,
I wanted to correct my post from the last time. I had my country music singers mixed up! The song is "Cryin for Me" by Toby Keith. I think your mom would enjoy the relaxation tapes. They teach you how to breath to relieve stress,etc. They would make her less antsy! Keep up the good work. Thinking of you.

Music helps me cope too, my Ipod has been my life since my mom got diagnosed 10 months ago. I have found a lot of songs. Here are a few, if you need help finding some songs let me know!:)

(I put some good parts of the song below the song title)

You're Not Alone by Saosin
-You're not alone
There is more to this I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell

Again I Go Unnoticed by Dashboard Confessional
- Please tell me you're just feeling tired,cause if it's more than that I feel that I might break.Out of touch. Out of time.

Arms Around Me by Hawk Nelson
- When I hurt You, I never meant to hurt You. I'm just trying to work through things in my life. Emotions can be mean and I didn't really mean it. I never stopped believing in the truth. I'm not big on waiting. I could use some patience.This time I'm not afraid of losing
Wrap Your arms around me I know.Trying hard not to let go.Every time I stand up, I fall without You. When You wrap Your arms around me I know with me wherever I go. Nothing else matters at all when You're here

Do You Feel by The Rocket Summer
-I'm thinking about other things I heard about today
All this week and tomorrow
And how these hands can create some better things for bettering
but you see for now I got my own things
I can't help it
I got too many issues I own
So I cannot help I'm afraid, yeah
But keep on preaching, preaching and heal the world
Lip service makes us look great

Do you feel
The weight of the world singing sorrow
Or to you is it just not real
Cause you got your own things
Yeah we all have our things I guess
Holy My Heart by Tenth Avenue North
-One tear in the driving rain,
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart?
One life, that's all I am
Right now I can barely stand
If You're everything You say You are
Would You come close and hold my heart

I Will Not Bow by Breaking Benjamin

The Lost Get Found by Britt Nicole

Oceans from the Rain by Seventh Day Slumber

Rain by Creed

I am not a cancer patient, however my father is.
I found out crovn and I have the same taste in music. Do You Feel also helps me through a lot. A song I haven't seen here yet is:
Save You - Simple Plan.
"Take a breath, I pull myself together.
Just another step until I reach the door.
You'll never know the way it tears me up inside to see you..
I wish that I could tell you something to take it all away.

Sometimes I wish I could save you,
And there's so many things that I want you to know.
I won't give up 'til it's over.
If it takes you forever, I want you to know..

When I hear your voice,
It's drowning in the whispers.
It's just skin and bones,
There's nothing left to take.
And no matter what I do,
I can't make you feel better.
If only I could find the answer to help me understand..

If you fall, stumble down, I'll pick you up off the ground.
If you lose faith in you, I'll give you strength to pull through.
Tell me you won't give up,
'Cause I'll be waiting if you fall.
You know I'll be there for you.

If only I could find the answer to take it all away.."

It is written about the singer's brother with cancer. I can relate to it so much!

I am planning on making a CD for my father with these kind of songs, for when he is having a rough day. Thanks for the songs everyone!

Chillout, from zefrank, written at the request of a girl who was having trouble coping with changes in her life. You can read the story behind it and then listen to the song, or listen to the song and then read the story, or just listen while you read the story :) It's a very sweet song, an "audio hug", as the young lady calls for.

that came to mind.
First one is from the movie "Toys" with Robin Williams...it's the starting song, it's for Christmas, but it's still valid for all of us.

Performed by The Musical Cast of Toys Featuring Wendy & Lisa

If I cannot bring you comfort
then at least I bring you hope
for nothing is more precious
than the time we have and so
we all must learn from small misfortune
count the blessings that are real
let the bells ring out for christmas
at the closing of the year
let the bells
ring out for christmas
at the closing of the year

If I cannot bring you comfort
then at least I bring you hope

at the closing of the year
at the closing of the year
at the closing of the year

The other is a song by Massive Attack, a group that has many powerful songs, but this is one of the best, "Protection"

This girl I know needs some shelter
She don't believe anyone can help her
She's doing so much harm, doing so much damage
But you don't want to get involved
You tell her she can manage
And you can't change the way she feels
But you could put your arms around her

I know you want to live yourself
But could you forgive yourself
If you left her just the way
You found her

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

You're a boy and i'm a girl
But you know you can lean on me
And I don't have no fear
I'll take on any man here
Who says that's not the way it should be

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

She's a girl and you're a boy
Sometimes you look so small, look so small
You've got a baby of your own
When your baby's gone, she'll be the one
To catch you when you fall

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

You're a girl and i'm a boy [x4]

Sometimes you look so small, need some shelter
Just runnin' round and round, helter skelter
And I've leaned on me for years
Now you can lean on me
And that's more than love, that's the way it should be
Now I can't change the way you feel
But I can put my arms around you
That's just part of the deal
That's the way I feel
I'll put my arms around you

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

You're a boy and i'm a girl [x4]

I can't even read through these lyrics without crying....enjoy!

I like " It's a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong

see trees of green........ red roses too
I see em bloom..... for me and for you
And I think to myself.... what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue..... clouds of white
Bright blessed days....dark sacred nights
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world.

The colors of a rainbow.....so pretty ..in the sky
Are also on the faces.....of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands.....sayin.. how do you do
Theyre really sayin......i love you.

I hear babies cry...... I watch them grow

Theyll learn much more.....than Ill never know

And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world

(instrumental break)

The colors of a rainbow.....so pretty ..in the sky
Are there on the faces.....of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands.....sayin.. how do you do
Theyre really sayin...*spoken*(I ....love....you).

I hear babies cry...... I watch them grow
*spoken*(you know their gonna learn
A whole lot more than Ill never know)
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself .......what a wonderful world.

I'm surprised it took almost a year for someone to mention Tim McGraw's song - it's practically a classic for cancer diagnosis. And I almost missed this posting - I was going to say I was surprised no one had posted it!

Another of my favorites when I'm feeling a bit low is Gloria Gaynor's "I will Survive". Yeah, I know it's about a break-up but isn't dying from cancer the biggest break up there is?

It's my wife that is fighting the beast, but I need the songs too. The full lyrics are in my profile:

Don’t give up the ship
Even when you feel it’s sinking
And you don’t know what to do
Don’t give up your dream
Even though you may be thinking
It never will come true
Life has it’s own ideas of how things come about
And if you just hang in there, life is gonna work it out

Help is on the way
From places you don’t know about today
From friends you may not have met
Yet
Believe me when I say
I know
Help is on the way

"What Faith Can Do" by Kutless

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes
And make a new beginning

Anyone can feel the ache
You think it's more than you can take
But you're stronger
Stronger than you know

Don't you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do

It doesn't matter what you've heard
Impossible is not a word
It's just a reason
For someone not to try

Everybody's scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It'll be alright

Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do

Overcome the odds
You don't have a chance
(That's what faith can do)
When the world says you can't
It'll tell you that you can

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do
That's what faith can do

Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise

Warren Zevon -  Life'll Kill Ya

You've got an invalid haircutIt hurts when you smileYou'd better get out of townBefore your nickname expiresIt's the kingdom of the spidersIt's the empire of the antsYou need a permit to walk around downtownYou need a license to dance
Life'll kill youThat's what I saidLife'll kill youAnd then you'll be deadLife'll find youWherever you goRequiescat in paceThat's all she wrote
From the president of the United StatesTo the lowliest rock and roll starThe doctor is in and he'll see you nowHe don't care who you areSome get the awful, awful diseasesSome get the knife, some get the gunSome get to die in their sleepAt the age of a hundred and one
Life'll kill youThat's what I saidLife'll kill youThen you'll be deadLife'll find youWherever you goRequiescat in paceThat's all she wrote
Maybe you'll go to heavenSee uncle Al and uncle LouMaybe you'll be reincarnatedMaybe that stuff's trueMaybe if you were goodMaybe you'll come back as someone niceAnd maybe if you were badYou'll have to pay the price
Life'll kill youThat's what I saidLife'll kill youThen you'll be deadLife'll find youWherever you goRequiescat in paceThat's all she wrote

Israel Kamakawiwo’ole – Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World

Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh
Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
And the dreams that you dream of
Once in a lullaby (Ai)

(Oh) Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
And the dreams that you dream of,
Dreams really do come true (ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That’s where you’ll find me

(Oh) Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
And the dreams that you dare to
Oh why, oh why can’t I (hai hai, ai ai ai)

Well I see trees of green and red roses too
I watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

Well I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white
And the bright bliss of day I like the dark
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They’re really saying I, I love you

I hear babies cry and I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than we’ll know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world (urld urld, urld urld urld)

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me

(Oh) Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dare to,
Why, oh why can’t I (hai hai, ai ai ai)

Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh
Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ah Ah Eeh Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah

There's so many good songs written for all we experience in life. I read this quote that sums up a lot ." All it takes is one song to bring back a thousand memories ".
