Ok, this is what I would listen to if I really wanted to indulge myself and force out those tears. Where I could, I tried to let the lyrics speak for themselves.

Track 2 from Live in Pomona, CA (01.09.2004)
Length: 00:03:30
Year: 2004
Track Description:
This song sounds like a militaristic call to arms for the somewhat dejected. 'And sometimes when you're on
You're really fucking on
And your friends they sing along
And they love you
But the lows are so extreme
That the good seems fucking cheap
And it teases you for weeks in its absence
But you'll fight and you'll make it through
You'll fake it if you have to
And you'll show up for work with a smile'

Och she's in a muddle again. 'I just wanna say
Don't ever change now baby

Before the sun rises
Over the skyscrapers
And the city landscape comes into view
Sweat on my skin
Oh
This mess we're in'

Track 12 from Both Sides Now
Length: 00:05:46
Year: 0000
Track Description:
On the album of the same name, Joni tracked the course of a relationship from infatuation to heartbreak and I really think this song is the one of the most upfront and heartwrenching songs I've heard by her. It's also in that bit in Love Actually when Emma Thompson cries.'Tears and fears and feeling proud to say "i love you" right out loud,
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds, i've looked at life that way.
But now old friends are acting strange, they shake their heads, they say
I've changed.
Something's lost but something's gained in living every day.'
