13 Songs That Hit Us Right In The Feels

All aboard the tear train, y'all.

Everyone has that one song that kicks them right in the throat the moment they hear it beginning. Maybe the lyrics are so powerful, you have to chop some onions, just in case. Maybe you listened to it during a rough time, or maybe it was playing when your favorite character died (R.I.P. Marissa, "The OC" was never the same without you, girl). 

Reddit user choto asked users, "What song's lyrics destroy you every time?"

Here's how Reddit answered: 


1. "The Boxer," Simon & Garfunkel

I am leaving, I am leaving/

but the fighter still remains/ 

2. "Famous Blue Raincoat," Leonard Cohen

And you treated my woman to a flake of your life/
And when she came back she was nobody's wife/
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer/
What can I possibly say?/ 
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you/ 
I'm glad you stood in my way/

If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me/ 
Your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free/ 
Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes/ 
I thought it was there for good so I never tried/

3. "Time in a Bottle," Jim Croce

But there never seems to be enough time/ 
to do the things you want to do, once you find them/


4. "Just a Song Before I Go," Crosby, Stills & Nash

She finally looked at me in love/

and she was gone/

5. "Comfortably Numb," Pink Floyd

When I was a child/ 
I caught a fleeting glimpse out of the corner of my eye/ 
I turned to look, but it was gone/
I cannot put my finger on it now/ 
the child has grown, the dream is gone/


6. "Do You Realize?" The Flaming Lips

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face/ 
Do You Realize - we're floating in space/
Do You Realize - that happiness makes you cry/ 
Do You Realize - that everyone you know someday will die/

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know/ 
You realize that life goes fast/ 
It's hard to make the good things last/ 
You realize the sun doesn't go down/ 
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round/

7. "Fire and Rain," James Taylor

Just yesterday morning, they let me know you were gone/

Suzanne, the plans they made put an end to you/

8. "Casimir Pulaski Day," Sufjan Stevens

And he takes, and he takes, and he takes/ 


9. "The Day After Tomorrow," Tom Waits

What I miss you won't believe/
Shoveling snow and raking leaves/
And my plane will touch tomorrow/
On the day after tomorrow/


10. "Two-Headed Boy Pt. 2," Neutral Milk Hotel

Two-headed boy, she is all you will know/ 
She will feed you tomatoes and radio wires/ 
And retire to sheets safe and clean/ 
But don't hate her when she gets up to leave/


11. "Brick," Ben Folds Five

They call her name at seven thirty/ 
I pace around the parking lot/
Then I walk down to buy her flowers/ 
And sell some gifts that I got/
Can't you see/ 
It's not me you're dying for/ 
Now she's feeling more alone/ 
Then she ever has before/ 
She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly/
Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere/


12. "Every Single Night," Fiona Apple

That what I am is what I am cause I does what I does/ 
And maybe I'd relax, let my breast just bust open/ 
My heart's made of parts of all that surround me/ 
And that's why the devil just can't get around me/ 
Every single night's alright, every single night's a fight/ 
And every single fight's alright with my brain/

I just want to feel everything/
I just want to feel everything/
I just want to feel everything/
I just want to feel everything/

13. "Birthday Song," 2 Chainz

She got a big booty, so I call her big booty/
