-->Mama whispered softly "time will ease your pain\\
Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same"\\
And she said "How can I help you to say goodbye? It's okay to hurt and it's okay to cry.\\
Come let me hold you and I will try,\\
how can I help you to say goodbye?''

* Brantley Gilbert's "Saving Amy," about a girl he knew in high school, is an interesting twist in the grief song. It deals with a woman recovering from the death of her fiancée, who died (presumably in an accident) on the night he proposed. However, it's told from the deceased boyfriend's point of view, begging God that while it's too late to save him, it's that "there's still hope for saving Amy" from living her life grief-stricken. It then goes on to chronicle the woman's slow climb out of depression, and at the end, he thanks God for "saving Amy" when he is reunited with her years later. It's a heartbreakingly powerful song.

* In the film version of ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Return of the King]],'' there is Pippin's song as Faramir's Knights of Minas Tirith charge Osgiliath. In the first film and in the book, Elves sing a tearjerking lament for Gandalf. In ''The Two Towers'' movie, Éowyn's song at her cousin's funeral is a heartbreaker, particularly when one deciphers the Anglo-Saxon.
