    This Masquerade - George Benson

    Are we really happy here
    With this lonely game we play
    Looking for words to say?
    Searching
    But not finding understanding anyway
    We're lost in a mas--masquerade

    Both afraid to say
    We're just too far away
    From being close together from the start
    We tried to talk it over
    But the words got in the way
    We're lost inside this lonely game we play

    Thoughts of leaving disappear
    Ev'ry time I see your eyes
    No matter how hard I try
    To understand the reasons
    That we carry on this way
    We're lost in this masquerade

    Both afraid to say
    We're just too far away
    From being close together from the start
    We tried to talk it over
    But the words got in the way
    We're lost inside this lonely game we play

    Thoughts of leaving disappear
    Ev'ry time I see your eyes
    No matter how hard I try
    To understand the reasons
    That we carry on this way
    We're lost in this masquerade

    Followed by The Beatles - We can work it out

    Neil Young's "You and me", as well as "from Hank to Hendrix" are both excellent songs about struggling times in relationships - but probably only relevant if you've been together a few years. Bernard Fanning's albumn "Tea and Sympathy" on the other hand might have something you can relate to - its a great "breaking up" album, if there ever was such a thing.

    But "From Hank to Hendrix" - its brilliant, see?:

    From hank to hendrix
    I walked these streets with you
    Here I am with this old guitar
    Doin what I do.

    I always expected
    That you should see me through
    I never believed in much
    But I believed in you.

    Can we get it together
    Can we still stand side by side
    Can we make it last
    Like a musical ride?

    From marilyn to madonna
    I always loved your smile
    Now were headed for the big divorce
    California-style.

    I found myself singin
    Like a long-lost friend
    The same thing that makes you live
    Can kill you in the end.

    Can we get it together
    Can we still stand side by side
    Can we make it last
    Like a musical ride?

    Sometime its distorted
    Not clear to you
    Sometimes the beauty of love
    Just comes ringin through.

    New glass in the window
    New leaf on the tree
    New distance between us
    You and me.

    Can we get it together
    Can we still walk side by side
    Can we make it last
    Like a musical ride?

    Love Isn't Easy (But It Sure Is Hard Enough)-ABBA

    Do you remember the first time, and all of your sweet sweet talk
    Ain't heard it a lot since then love
    Now look at that guy, he's making me cry
    He leaves every morning and he hardly says goodbye
    But if I would have to choose I wouldn't let you go
    Just give it some more time and you will see our love will grow
    Darling, I know

    We gotta have patience
    Love isn't just a sensation
    Some of the time it gets rough
    Love isn't easy but it sure is hard enough
    (Sweet sweet, our love is bitter-sweet)
    Giving love is a reason for living
    But a few things can be tough
    Love isn't easy but it sure is hard enough
    (Sweet sweet, our love is bitter-sweet)

    From the first moment I saw you I've treated you like a queen
    I've given you lots of presents
    Now listen to that, just look at that cat
    You'd think he was an angel but he's talking through his hat
    But if I would have to choose I wouldn't let you go
    Just give it some more time and you will see our love will grow
    Darling I know

    We gotta have patience
    Love isn't just a sensation
    Some of the time it gets rough
    Love isn't easy but it sure is hard enough
    (Sweet sweet, our love is bitter-sweet)
    Giving
    (Sweet sweet, our love is bitter-sweet)
    Love is a reason for living
    (Sweet sweet, our love is bitter-sweet)
    But a few things can be tough
    Love isn't easy but it sure is hard enough
    (Sweet sweet, our love is bitter-sweet)

    Patience
    (Sweet sweet, our love is bitter-sweet)
    Love isn't just a sensation
    (Sweet sweet, our love is bitter-sweet)
    Some of the time it gets rough
    Love isn't easy but it sure is hard enough
    (Sweet sweet, our love is bitter-sweet)
    Giving
    (Sweet sweet, our love is bitter-sweet)
    Love is a reason for living
    (Sweet sweet, our love is bitter-sweet)
    But a few things can be tough
    Love isn't easy but it sure is hard enough
    It is not good for all our wishes to be filled; thru sickness we recognize the value of health; thru evil, the value of good; thru hunger, the value of food; thru exertion, the value of rest.

    I will get back to you on this one, all the above songs are great and I will see if I can think of one to add, I wish you all the luck in the world that you can work things out with your boyfriend and you will be hugging eachother in a few days time x
    The best thing about old country music it told a story. The best thing about Blues music it came from inside. The best thing about Rock music is you can make it what you want.

    Scorpions - Your last song

    Here I am
    Writing my last song for you
    Hear the words carefully
    And you'll see it's you
    I'm leaving
    Don't want to be the one to tell you
    That I can't stay another day

    I'll throw the pages on the floor
    I'm starting over like before
    I'll change this stupid ending
    And stay with you forever more
    But when I'm lying next to you
    It's hard to bargain with the truth
    Cause when you know the love is gone
    The time has come to write your last song

    There you are
    Smiling at me from the next room
    Beautiful as the first day I met you
    And I'm so sorry
    I couldn't be the one to love you
    The way that you deserve to be

    I'll throw the pages on the floor
    I'm starting over like before
    I'll change this stupid ending
    And stay with you forever more
    But when I'm lying next to you
    It's hard to bargain with the truth
    Cause when you know the love is gone
    The time has come to write your last song

    It's hard to think of you and I
    As total strangers
    I've lived this last goodbye
    A million times or more in my mind
    My mind, my mind

    Oh and I'm gonna miss you
    But I can't go back
    Even just to kiss you
    Cause I can't exist
    Just living a lie
    Gotta lot of love to give
    You know before I die
    And as I watch you
    Sing along
    It's killing me to know
    That it's your last song
