edited March 2013 in The Porch
My husband passed away today(3/23/13). We have been together since the 1st day we met 2/14/87.
He more than tolerated my love for PJ.
I would very much appreciate any Pearl Jam lyrics to help get though this or to use in a service.
Thank you for your consideration.

UPDATE:
Thanks for all posts and pm’s. Pearl Jam was so much a part of our lives; I had to pay tribute to this fact in my husband’s passing by requesting any memorial contributions to Vitalogy Foundation. I truly think he would be pleased with this.

Troy K. Black, 50, of Palmyra passed away Saturday, March 23, 2013 in the M. S. Hershey Medical Center.

Born August 8, 1982 in York he was the son of Cheryl and Barry Seasely and Gary Black.

Employed by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, he was a U. S. Navy veteran and a member of Campbelltown American Legion #831.

Surviving in addition to his parents are his wife Kathy (Kelly) Black;
mother-in-law and father-in-law Mary and Ed Kelly; and many other family members who loved him and will miss him.

A visitation will be held 4:00 – 6:00 PM Thursday, March 28, 2013 at Buse Funeral Home, 145 North Grant Street, Palmyra. Interment, with military honors, will be 10:00 AM Friday at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery, Annville.

Memorial contributions may be made to Vitalogy Foundation, P. O. Box 340020, Nashville, TN 37203.

Condolences may be shared at BuseFuneralHome.com

    I wished for so long...
    I cannot stay
    All the precious moments...
    Cannot stay
    Its not like wings have fallen...
    I cannot say
    Still something is missing...
    I cannot say

    Holding hands of daughters and sons
    In their phase theyre falling down
    Down, down, down

    I have wished for so long...
    How I wish for you again

    Will I walk the long road?
    I cannot stay
    Theres no need to say goodbye

    Oh, the friends and family...
    All the memories going round
    Round, round round...

    I have wished for so long...
    How I wished for you today

    And the wind keeps rollin
    And the sky keeps turning grey
    And the sun is set
    The sun will rise another day

    I have wished for so long...
    How I wish for you today

    I have wished for so long...
    How I wish for you today
    Will I walk the long road?
    We all walk the long road

    I am so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how hard this must be for you. I lost a sister a year ago tomorrow. Songs that helped me were Come Back, Light Years and Goodbye. I think I wore my Ipod for a week listening to PJ or Eddie pretty much continuously. I don't think I wouldn't have gotten through it without them.
    And the sun it may be shining . . . but there's an ocean in my eyes

    Goodbye

    I've got our love to remember
    That will never change
    I have you in my head
    And no, I'll never hold you
    And I'm still asking why
    I guess that this is goodbye

    My dreams suddenly seem so empty
    I could go it on my own, but I feel like playin' dead
    And for what feels like the first time
    I don't know where you are tonight
    I guess that this is goodbye

    We lived half our lives together
    A hundred years is a lot of weight to bear
    And the sun, it may be shining
    But there's an ocean in my eyes
    Cause I know that this is goodbye
    Cause I know that this... is goodbye
    And the sun it may be shining . . . but there's an ocean in my eyes

    Thank you for your consideration.

    This is not written by Pearl Jam but they play it so beautiful. It's about love and loss. And how things can never be certain.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0B-hJ_gotc

    some hate it. I love it. Losing some one is always like a car crash, so unexpected and devastating.

    "Where, oh where, can my baby be? the lord took her away from
    Me. she's gone to heaven, so Ive got to be good. so I can see my baby when i
    Leave this world.

    We were out on a date in my daddys car. we hadnt driven very far. there in
    The road, straight ahead. a car was stalled, the engine was dead.

    I couldnt stop, so I swerved to the right. I'll never forget the sound that
    Night. the screamin tires, the bustin glass. the painful scream that I heard
    Last.

    Oh where, oh where, can my baby be? the lord took her away from me. she's gone
    To heaven, so Ive got to be good. so I can see my baby when I leave this world.

    When I woke up the rain was pourin down. there were people standin all around.
    Something warm flowing through my eyes. but somehow I found my baby that night.
    I lifted her head, she looked at me and said. hold me darling, just a little
    While. I held her close, I kissed her our last kiss. I found the love that i
    Knew I had missed.

    Well now she's gone. even though I hold her tight. I lost my love, my life,
    That night.

    Oh where, oh where, can my baby be? the lord took her away from me. she's gone
    To heaven, so Ive got to be good. so I can see my baby when I leave this
    World."



    clutch the happy memories.

    D..

    That is way too much heartbreak for this type of moment.
    I can't watch PJ cry. That event left me holding my breath. But you are in the same thoughts ... Pearl Jam over came and didn't give up. I just think it's too soon for the OP? I am likely wrong

    KEEP the lyrics flowing peeps!

    Bump


    "I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
    I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on
    I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
    The Christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top
    I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
    For 50 million hands upraised and open toward the sky

    I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me
    I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me
    I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good
    I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro's hood

    I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
    I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
    I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
    I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down

    I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up
    I wish...
    I wish... "

    You can find some comfort in this world.

    I can't say I'm sorry, it's not the right words. I want to say, You are going to be sad, and it's logical. It's not an easy trip. We will cry a lot. It's going to be a long road, but we will walk it, because we have the strength to
    "carry on ... Carry on". Just breathe..

    You have him in your heart. If he could look on you from heaven.. He wants to see you smiling, and not sorry and sad.

    My first live PJ song and I cried buckets of tears.




    This video keeps me going. I remember we need to be happy, even when life is shit.

    Some day you can smile again. But maybe you will always miss

    Don't it make you smile? (2x)
    When the sun don't shine it don't shine at all...
    Don't it make you smile?
    Don't it make you smile?
    Don't it make me smile? Yeah...
    When the sun don't shine it don't shine at all...yeah...
    Don't it make me smile?
    I miss you already yeah...I miss you always...
    I miss you already yeah...I miss you all day...
    This is how I feel...
    I...I miss you already yeah...I miss you always...
    The crooked heart swells all around, yeah...I miss you all day...
    The crooked heart swells around, yeah...
    Don't it make you smile? (2x)
    The crooked heart swells around...

    This is my favorite dvd, video, live whatever. I have to watch it at least once a week. I laugh.

    They actually showed proof that things go wrong. SMILE?

    I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband :(



    "Without You"

    I'll grow when you grow
    Let me loosen up the blindfold
    I'll fly when you cry
    Lift us out of this landslide
    Wherever you go
    Whenever we part

    I'll keep on healing all the scars
    That we've collected from the start
    I'd rather this than live without you
    For every wish upon a star
    That goes unanswered in the dark
    There is a dream, I've dreamt about you

    And from afar, I lie awake
    Close my eyes to find I wouldn't be the same

    I'll shine when you shine
    Painted pictures on my mind
    Sun sets on this ocean
    Never once on my devotion
    However you are
    Or far that you're far

    I'll keep on healing all the scars
    That we've collected from the start
    I'd rather this than live without you
    For every wish upon a star
    That goes unanswered in the dark
    There is a dream, I've dreamt about you

    And from afar, I lie awake
    Close my eyes to find I'd never be the same
    Without you, without you?

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Spoken words aren't enough

    Light years

    I've used hammers made out of wood
    I have played games with pieces and rules..
    I've deciphered tricks at the bar...
    But now you're gone,... I haven't figured out why...
    I've come up with riddles... and jokes about war...
    I've figured out numbers and what they're for...
    I've understood feelings.. and I've understood words...
    But how could you be taken away?...

    And wherever you've gone...and wherever we might go...
    It don't seem fair...today just disappeared...
    Your light's reflected now,... reflected from afar...
    We were but stones,... your light made us stars

    With heavy breath,... awakened regrets...
    Back pages and days alone that could have been spent,
    Together... but we were... miles apar...t
    Every inch between us becomes light years now...
    No need to be void,... or save up on life...
    You got to spend it all.....

    And wherever you've gone... and wherever we might go...
    It don't seem fair...you seemed to like it here...
    Your light's reflected now,... reflected from afar
    We were but stones,... your light made us stars

    And wherever you've gone... and wherever we might go...
    It don't seem fair...today just disappeared...
    Your light's reflected now,... reflected from afar...
    We were but stones,... your light made us stars

    Oceans


    Hold on to the thread
    The currents will shift
    Glide me towards you
    Know something's left
    And we're all allowed
    to dream of the next
    Oh the next... time we touch..........

    You don't have to stray
    Two oceans away
    Waves roll in my thoughts
    Hold tight the ring...
    The sea will rise...
    Please stand by the shore...

    I will be...
    I will be...
    There once more.........

    Thumbing my way



    I have not been home since you left long ago
    I'm thumbing my way back to heaven

    Counting steps,.. walking backwards on the road
    I'm counting my way back to heaven

    I can't be free with what's locked inside of me...
    If there was a key, you took it in your hands.
    There's no wrong or right,... but I'm sure there's good and bad
    The questions linger overhead

    No matter how cold the winter, there's a springtime ahead
    I'm thumbing my way back to heaven
    I wish that I could hold you... wish that I had
    Thinking 'bout heaven

    I let go of a rope,... thinking that's what held me back
    And in time I've realized,... it's now wrapped around my neck
    I can't see what's next,... from this lonely overpass
    Hang my head and count my steps, as another car goes past

    All the rusted sign we ignore throughout our lives
    Choosing the shiny ones instead
    I turned my back,... now there's no turning back

    No matter how cold the winter,.. there's a springtime ahead
    I smile, but who am I kidding?
    I'm just walking the miles,.. every once in a while I'll get a ride
    I'm thumbing my way back to heaven

    Thumbing my way back to heaven
    I'm thumbing my way back to heaven...

    Hugs to you

    One more that gives me strength


    I am Mine

    The selfish, they're all standing in line
    Faithing and hoping to buy themselves time
    Me, I figure as each breath goes by
    I only own my mind

    The North is to South what the clock is to time
    There's east and there's west and there's everywhere life
    I know I was born and I know that I'll die
    The in between is mine
    I am mine

    And the feeling, it gets left behind
    All the innocence lost at one time
    Significant, behind the eyes
    There's no need to hide...
    We're safe tonight

    The ocean is full 'cause everyone's crying
    The full moon is looking for friends at high tide
    The sorrow grows bigger when the sorrow's denied
    I only know my mind
    I am mine

    And the meaning, it gets left behind
    All the innocents lost at one time
    Significant, behind the eyes
    There's no need to hide...
    We're safe tonight

    And the feelings that get left behind
    All the innocents broken with lies
    Significance, between the lines
    (We may need to hide)

    And the meanings that get left behind
    All the innocents lost at one time
    We're all different behind the eyes
    There's no need to hide
