Meaning of songs

10. Celine Dion - My Heart Will Go On
"You're here, there's nothing I fear and I know that my heart will go on."
Popularized by the movie Titanic, this heartbreaking song is a beautiful way to remember a loved one. It reminds the listener that, despite this person being gone, your love for them remains alive.
"My heart will go on" can be interpreted in different ways. To me, it means not only that YOU are still alive and will continue to live your life but also that the one you lost will stay with you forever in your heart. You will always love them and never forget them.
9. Third Eye Blind - The Background
"I only know because I carry you around in the background, 'cause I felt you long after we were through."
This song should be very relatable for those who have lost a loved one. It describes how he is trying to go on with his life and have things go back to normal, but he always carries the woman he lost in the back of his mind and heart. It conveys just how hard it is to move on and accept that a loved one is truly gone.
8. Snow Patrol - Run
"Even if you cannot hear my voice, I'll be right beside you, dear."
This song should speak to anyone who has had to say goodbye to a loved one. It holds a powerful message of holding onto the love you have for them after they're gone and captures the pain of having to let go of them.
7. James Taylor - Fire and Rain
"I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend but I always thought that I'd see you again."
Capturing the feeling of confusion following the death of a loved one perfectly, this song is a good listen for anyone grieving. Losing someone dear to you is one of the hardest things that anyone has to go through and "Fire and Rain" expresses the turmoil of emotions beautifully.
6. The Offspring - Gone Away
"I reach to the sky and call out your name. And if I could trade, I would."
This heartbreaking song shows the tremendous pain that one feels when someone they love is...
