Hi everyone,

Can anyone recommend nice acoustic love songs with lyrics that explains relationships between family members?
These songs really move me to tears:

Fly Away - Corrinne May
Love Me - Collin Raye
I Still Can't Say Goodbye - Tommy Emmanuel

Well Iron Maiden isn't really about acoustic love songs but they have:

Blood Brothers from Brave New World album. Its about father and son, more specifically, about Steve Harris (Maiden's bass guitarist) and his dad.

Not for kids ya. They will not understand it or like it.

Simple Plan has Perfect and again, father and son. Fort Minor's Whered You Go, about husband and wife/GF and BF? These are the 3 I can think off now.

Mike & the Mechanics - The living years.

It depicts the relationships of the 2 band members with their fathers. Mainly about the generation gap, the hopes and dreams between fathers and sons.

Cool. I didn't know that. You know, we hear songs on the radio but we don't listen to the words sometimes and they are actually quite good.

This is my fav song now. It is by late master guitarist Chet Atkins, later redone by another master guitarist Tommy Emmanuel

I STILL CAN'T SAY GOODBYE
Chet Atkins


Spoken introduction:
"You know, every time I look in the mirror I see my Dad.
I think that's why this song means so much to me."

When I was young, my Dad would say
Come on Son let's go out and play
Sometimes it seems like yesterday

And I'd climb up the closet shelf
When I was all by my-self
Grab his hat and fix the brim
Pretending I was him

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say good-bye

He always took care of Mom and me.
We all cut down a Christmas tree
He always had some time for me

Wind blows through the trees
Street lights, they still shine bright
Most things are the same
but I miss my Dad to-night

I walked by a Salvation Army store
Saw a hat like my daddy wore
Tried it on when I walked in
Still trying to be like him

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many years go by
No matter how many tears I cry
I still can't say good-bye
