Share, connect, and learn.
Thought this might be a fun thing to do - share songs that remind you of your T. sometimes a sad song that makes you think of yr T; but there might also be some really nice / fun songs that make you smile.

I'll start Big Grin

This one is called 'To Sir, With Love'. It's about leaving school (aka therapy) "but how do you thank someone, who has taken you from crayons to perfume ... It isn't easy, but I'll try....."

"The time has come... for closing books and long last looks must end .... and as I leave, I know that I'll be leaving my best friend...... A friend whose taught me right from wrong, from weak to strong, it's a lot to learn....."

I think it's beautiful song (this version was relapsed in the 1990s by a kiwi woman called Ngaire - I know it's an older song previously sung by different people but I love this one as it's very upbeat Big Grin

When I hear it, I feel happy - and really grateful for all my T is teaching me (even though lots of the 'lesions' hurt like a biartch at the time lol).

I think it sums up how many of us might feel about therapy and the role our Ts have in our lives - they change our lives in ways we just cannot ever really 'thank' them for

One time during a rupture with T I heard this song on the radio. It grabbed my attention and made me think of her because of all those times she's been on my mind as I drive to and from therapy!

"When I'm home alone I can think of other things to do
But when I'm rolling in forward motion, I think about only you

It's been a year and a day since I talked to you
I don't know how I made it, but I sure have been blue

And every time I think of what might have been
I jump in my car and start riding again

And I can't find no true love oh baby it's so hard
And I still think about you every time I'm ridin' in my car (ridin' in my car)"

Also, parts of the Taylor Swift song "Back To December" reminded me of T when I prematurely tried to leave therapy:

"Turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you,
wishing I realized what I had when you were mine."

awesome - thought of another one - parallels the therapeutic relationship and being in love ..intertwined with previous abandonment and feeling broken ...

Pink: Just Give Me A Reason:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gwx4iTRLXG8

LYRICS:
Right from the start
You were a thief
You stole my heart
And I your willing victim
I let you see the parts of me
That weren't all that pretty
And with every touch you fixed them

Now you've been talking in your sleep, oh, oh
Things you never say to me, oh, oh
Tell me that you've had enough
Of our love, our love

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

I'm sorry I don't understand
Where all of this is coming from
I thought that we were fine
(Oh, we had everything)
Your head is running wild again
My dear we still have everythin'
And it's all in your mind
(Yeah, but this is happenin')

You've been havin' real bad dreams, oh, oh
You used to lie so close to me, oh, oh
There's nothing more than empty sheets
Between our love, our love
Oh, our love, our love

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
I never stopped
You're still written in the scars on my heart
You're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Oh, tear ducts can rust
I'll fix it for us
We're collecting dust
But our love's enough
You're holding it in
You're pouring a drink
No nothing is as bad as it seems
We'll come clean

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
That we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
That we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Oh, we can learn to love again
Oh, we can learn to love again
Oh, oh, that we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

……………………………..

makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside - i especially love the chorus just a second, we're not broken, just bent, and we can learn to love again …" Smiler
I love Within Temptation and agree "All I Need" is a great therapy song. Smiler

I remembered another one. The last stanza of "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd reminds me of T, and therapy, in some of my more despairing moments.

"How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here."
Coldplay's "The Scientist"

Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you
Tell you I'll set you apart

Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
Oh let's go back to the start
Running in circles, coming in tails
Heads on a science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh, take me back to the start.

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling your puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I'm going back to the start.
Lay Me Down
Sam Smith

No words can explain the way I’m missing you
Deny this emptiness, this hole that I’m inside
These tears, they tell their own story

I’m reaching out to you
Can you hear my call?
(who's to say you won't hear me?)
This hurt that I’ve been through
I’m missing you, missing you like crazy

But the feeling’s overwhelming, they're much too strong...
Coldplay's "Fix You"

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I...

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
