Song for your brother's memorial slideshow
by: Tamara (Heavenly Doves editor)

Hi Lenae,

It seems that you are not 100% confident with using the Green Day song for the slideshow at your brother's memorial service.

Without knowing anything about your brother, his age or what type of music he was interested in, I will offer a couple of suggestions that I hope will help you:


* "Amazing" by Alex Lloyd.
It's an upbeat song that was released at about the same time as the Green Day song. The lyrics of the chorus are
"Cause you were amazing and we did amazing things,
And I wouldn't change it, cause we were amazing things."


* "Home" by Chris Daughtry.
The lyrics in the chorus are:
"Well I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I'm going home.
Well I'm going home."


* "Hear You Me" by Jimmy Eat World
This is a beautiful slow song and I have had a number of people tell me that it was a perfect song for a friend or family member.
Here are some lyrics:

"And if you were with me tonight
I'd sing to you just one more time
A song for a heart so big
God couldn't let it live

May angels lead you in
Hear you me my friends
On sleepless roads the sleepless go
May angels lead you in"


* "Forever Young" by Youth Group

"Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever?
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever? "
