    Songs about losing a friend?

    Hey, guys. I need some input from you all. On July 2, 1992, one of my closest friends was murdered. Anyway, this year marks 15 years since his death and I'm planning a special commemoration at his graveside including playing a special CD that I plan on making. Included on the CD will be his favorite song "What a Wonderful World" but I would like to put some more special songs about the loss of a friend, saying goodbye, or missing someone. If you all have some ideas about what to put on the CD, please please let me know. I need it by July 6th at the latest since that is the day I will be doing this.
    Thank you.

    I'm sorry about your friend, I guess it's a scar that will never heal.

    The first song that comes to mind for me is perhaps a quite abvious choice, Tears in Heaven, Eric Clapton. Maybe I'll think of something else later, in that case I'll tell.

    How Can I Help You Say Goodbye - Patty Loveless

    One of the most beautiful songs.

    Without You - from the musical RENT

    Come Some Rainy Day by Wynonna is a beautiful song that might be appropriate. It will make you cry though.

    Artist/Band: Wynonna Judd
    Lyrics for Song: Come Some Rainy Day
    Lyrics for Album: The Other Side
    (Billy Kirsch/Bat McGrath)

    What good's a dollar
    Without your baby sister?
    Two scoops of ice cream
    On a summer afternoon
    We ran wild
    And all we ever wanted
    Was to rule the world
    Between our house and school

    We move on
    Put those dreams away
    Thinking that we'll find them
    Come some rainy day

    First time I saw you
    I knew I would love you
    Half way through sophomore year
    I finally asked your name
    When I kissed you
    I lost my heart completely
    All we wanted
    Was just to stay that way

    We move on
    Put those dreams away
    Hoping that we'll find them
    Come some rainy day
    How could I know
    That everything would change
    Except the way I miss you
    Come some rainy day

    I'll sit and laugh with friends
    At what we've all been through
    But I still catch my breath
    When someone mentions you

    We move on
    Put those dreams away
    Thinking that we'll find them
    Come some rainy day

    Judd Wynonna - Come Some Rainy Day Lyrics

    I just thought of another one. "One Sweet Day"

    I immediately thought of Missing You by Diana Ross. I believe she sang it to Marvin Gaye after he died.

    One sweet day by Mariah Carey....they played it at a funeral of one of my friends and there wasn't a dry eye in the house.

    "My Old Friend" by Tim McGraw is also a good one

    Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) by Green Day
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.
