Jim Croce, a 70s songwriter, wrote some of the most amazing and sad love songs you will ever find. A love song is really a relationship poem that will convey heartfelt feelings about what a person has gone through in a particular relationship. A good love song, if it is sad, will actually make you feel like you are walking in the writers shoes, and experiencing the same sorrow. Sigh.
Favorite Sad Love Song
One of my favorite sad love songs is Jim Croce’s Time in a Bottle. Basically, the song is about not having enough time to spend with the person you love. Ironically, Jim died in a crash shortly after publishing it. He had written it this sad love song about his wife and music career. For this reason, this sad love song is not only beautiful , but eerie in a way. It certainly reminds me of how mortal I am, and that I should not take time for granted. In this sense, this sad love song is deeply effective:
If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you
But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with
Bible Verse of Day: James 4:13,14:
Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
As a single Christian, do you have a favorite sad love song?
