Funeral songs

Dont fret nothing  is wrong with me I just have a list of songs I would like to be played at the celebration of my life (funeral)

They’re not in any real order at the moment I will include a portion of lyrics in italics so you can see why I want them.

1. John Lennon – imagine

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion 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

2. Cyndi Lauper – girls just wanna have fun

Girls,
They want,
Wanna have fun.
Girls,
Wanna have

Some boys take a beautiful girl,
And hide her away from the rest of the world.
I wanna be the one to walk in the sun.
Oh,girls,
They wanna have fu-un.
Oh,girls,
Just wanna have
That’s all they really want…..
Some fun….

OK you’re probably thinking thats a weird song to have but it reminds me of highschool when me and one of my friends would drive around eating 50cent icecreams was good times!  I learned how to change gears in the car by eating ice cream but with my right hand not the left! Oh well  🙂

3.  Killswitch engage – my last serenade

from sorrow to serenity, it’s on your head
this is my last serenade
i feel you as you fall away
this is my last serenade
from yourself you can’t run away
it’s your choice, point the finger
but it’s on your head
your destination is a choice within yourself

4.  Avril lavringe – nobody’s home

OMG this song used to make me cry so much. Now it only does if I’m sad but still I want it.

Well, I couldn’t tell you why she felt that way,
She felt it everyday.
And I couldn’t help her,
I just watched her make the same mistakes again.

What’s wrong, what’s wrong now?
Too many, too many problems.
Don’t know where she belongs, where she belongs.

She wants to go home, but nobody’s home.
It’s where she lies, broken inside.
With no place to go, no place to go to dry her eyes.
Broken inside.

Open your eyes and look outside, find the reasons why.
You’ve been rejected, and now you can’t find what you’ve left behind.

5. R.E.M – Everybody hurts

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
When you’re sure you’ve had enough of this life, well hang on.
Don’t let yourself go, everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes.

Sometimes everything is wrong. now it’s time to sing along.
When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go, (hold on)
When you think you’ve had too much of this life, well hang on.


6. led zep – stairway to heaven

Theres a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook
Theres a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

Theres a feeling I get
When I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who standing looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

7.  eric claption – tears in heaven

I decided I didnt want this song any more because of these lyrics..

cause I know I dont belong here in heaven…

I think it’d be best suited as if someone was playing it “for” me like  a significant other so until then its off the list mmk?

8.  beatles – let it be

This was played at my mums funeral, I chose it and I think it suits me to.

When i find myself in times of trouble
Mother mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.


9. Avril Lavringe – when you’re gone

Never falls to make me cry

When You’re Gone
The Pieces Of My Heart Are Missing You
When You’re Gone
The Face I Came To Know Is Missing Too
When You’re Gone
The Words I Need To Hear To Always Get Me Through The Day And Make It Ok
I Miss You

10. guns n roses – knocking on heavens door / november rain. Havent decided between these two yet.

11. linkin park. shadow of a day. one step closer or these two.

12.  westlife. flying without wings

You re the place my life begins
Youll be where it ends
Im flying without wings
And thats the joy you bring
Im flying without wings

13. avril lavringe – slipped away


I hope you can hear me, I remember it clearly
The day you slipped away, was the day
I found it won’t be the same

Na na na na na na na
I didn’t get around to kiss you, goodbye on the hand
I wish that I could see you again, I know that I can’t

I hope you can hear me, Cause I remember it clearly
The day you slipped away, was the day
I found it won’t be the same

14. Queensryche – Silent Lucidity

I-will be watching over you
I-am gonna help you see it through
I-will protect you in the night
I-am smiling next to you…in silent lucidity

15. Hanson – I will come to you

When you have no light to guide you
And no one to walk to walk beside you
I will come to you
Oh I will come to you
When the night is dark and stormy
You wont have to reach out for me
I will come to you
Oh I will come to you

Hanson – with you in your dreams

Dont cry Im with you dont cry Im by your side
Dont cry Im with you dont cry Im by your side
And though my flesh is gone, hoo ohh
Ill still be with you at all times
And though my body is gone, hoo ohh
Ill be there to comfort you at all times

15. Iron & Wine – the trapeaze swinger

> A vision to removed to mention
But please remember me
Fondly
I heard from someone you’re still pretty
And then they went on to say
That the Pearly Gate
Has some eloquent graffiti
Like “Well meet again”
And “Fuck the man”
“Tell my mother not to worry”
And angels with their great handshakes
But always done in such a hurry
And please remember me
