I'm surprised noone is mentioning steven wilson's...anything. Sure, it's generic when it comes to sad songs, but god damn I can't watch/listen to this and feel nothing. I lost my sister when I was 14 and knowing what that did to my mom...this just hits so hard
Crystal by Buckingham Nicks lately has been invoking some particularly emotional reactions from me. I have never been romantically involved with anyone and truth be told I can't say that I've loved anyone in a more than platonic way. The lyrical content makes me feel some sort of indescribable longing for the kind of intense devotion and selflessness the sheer presence of another human being might invoke within me...Or this pure bliss of safety and security one's heart might embrace me with. Sounds weepy, but damn do those lyrics hit the very core of my occasionally overbearing solitude and loneliness.
