Thank You, by Johnny Reid
A Deeply Moving Song that Says Thank You to a Spouse Who has Passed On
The video is heart wrenching as it shows a wife packing up the belongings of lifetime shared with her husband who has passed away. There’s two thank yous being expressed in this song; a thank you from a husband who’s passing away as well as a thank you from a wife to her passed away husband for the life they shared together.
It doesn’t matter how many times I listen to this song, it makes me cry. I think about my father who recently passed away, and my mom still living in our family home, and I’m reduced to conflicted tears; tears of gratefulness for being their daughter, tears of sadness because dad is no longer here and mom’s without him, and tears for how fast life goes by.
If you’re at this stage in life, or the child of parents at this stage of life…the beauty of the song is extremely haunting and it will move you.
(Lyrics) Thank you for the life you’ve given me, thank you for sharing all your love and all your dreams…

A Thank You from Husband to Wife
Written on a completely personal level, Keith Urban puts his love for Nicole Kidman front and center in this emotionally charged story told in song. You can read about his song writing journey in an interview he gave to People.com: He explains how the lyrics to most of his songs represent a snapshot of his life at the time of writing.
Although, Keith Urban wrote ‘Thank You’ for his wife, it’s a song of thanks, sincerely delivered and there’s no doubting that it could easily apply to many of our lives.
If you’ve struggled in this life to find yourself rescued by the love of a woman, then you’ll appreciate the depth of realization and grace that’s hidden in each and every word of thanks.
(Lyrics) ‘Like a fool I thought I could fight the shadows on my own…All I know is I owe everything to you…I thank you..’
Every Day by Rascal Flatts
A song that expresses how a person gets through each day because of that special soul in their life
Although this song doesn’t use the words ‘thank you’ directly, the lyrics express how ‘every day you save my life, …you always say something without even knowing…and I’m alright for one more night’.
As expressed in song, ‘every day you save me’. If you have a relationship in your life that you believe saves you, then certainly ‘Every Day’ by Rascal Flatts should make it to the top of your list.
Each of us carries the heart of a special person in our heart and whether that person is a spouse, a friend, a sibling or a parent, this song works. The gratitude expressed can easily be dedicated to any special individual you find yourself wanting to thank.
(Lyrics) ‘You could have bowed out gracefully but you didn’t…the only one who gets me…every day you save my life’
Somebody’s Hero by Jamie O’Neal
A Perfect Song for A Daughter to Say Thank You to Her Mom for a Lifetime of Love
If you’re looking to find the ideal words to express just what your mother means to you, then you have to listen to Somebody’s Hero.
The beauty in the song is the way it tells the story of an entire life; a hero to her little girl, a hero to her daughter when she weds, and as the years go by her mother becomes the ‘envy of the nursing home’ as her daughter is right there by her side to honor her mother for her lifetime of love and commitment.
If you’re one of the lucky ones who has had the undying love of a terrific mom, then you’re truly blessed and this song will resonate strongly with you. It’s such an emotionally moving tune that it deserved it’s own dedicated review. It ranks as one of the best mother daughter songs.
(Lyrics) ‘But she’s somebody’s hero, a hero to her baby with the skinned up knee, a little kiss is all she needs’
What a Difference You’ve Made in My Life, by Ronnie Milsap
An ideal choice to say thank you to a friend, spouse, parent, child or any significant person you want to thank
An absolute classic by the great Ronnie Milsap. His music is cross-generational and it will never die. If you’re new to the fierce talent of Ronnie Milsap, you’re in for a treat. After all these years his music can still send chills up and down your spine!
If you’re a Ronnie Milsap fan, you’re already very familiar with ‘What a Difference You’ve Made in My Life’. Again, it doesn’t expressly use the words ‘Thank you’, however the entire song is an anthem for someone who has impacted your life whether it be in the area love, support or friendship. The song can work no matter the type of thank you you’re trying to express.
The song speaks about how someone special has impacted their life and showed them the meaning of true love. Again, the interpretation of love can be any kind of love.
(Lyrics) ‘You’re my sunshine day and night, oh what a difference you’ve made in my life…’
