    Ok, this is an obvious one for Grissom's POV :):

    Sara Smile
    by Daryl Hall and John Oates

    Baby hair with a woman's eyes
    I can feel you watching in the night
    All alone with me and
    we're waiting for the sunlight
    When I feel cold you warm me
    When I feel I can't go on
    you come and hold me
    It's you and me forever

    Sara smile
    Won't you smile a while for me, Sara

    If you feel like leaving
    you know you can go
    But why don't you stay until tomorrow
    And if you want to be free
    you know all you have to do is say so
    When you feel cold I'll warm you
    And when you feel you can't go on
    I'll come and hold you
    It's you and me forever

    Sara smile
    Won't you smile a while for me, Sara
    Sara smile
    Smile a while for me, Sara

    Smile
    Oh won't you smile a while for me, Sara
    Smile
    Smile a while for me, Sara


    A nice version here:

    You can't have a good playlist without some Dave Matthews. Here's one for GSR:

    Where Are You Going
    by Dave Matthews

    Where are you going with your long face pulling down?
    Don't hide away, like an ocean, that you can't see but you can smell
    And the sound of waves crash down.

    I am no superman.
    I have no reasons for you.
    I am no hero, aww that's for sure.
    But I do know one thing:
    That's where you are, is where I belong.
    I do know where you go, is where I wanna be.

    Where are you going?
    Where do you go?
    Are you lookin' for answers to questions under the stars?
    If along the way you are growin' weary, you can rest with me
    Until a brighter day and you're ok.

    I am no superman.
    I have no answers for you.
    I am no hero, aww that's for sure.
    But I do know one thing:
    Where you are, is where I belong.
    I do know where you go, is where I wanna be.

    Where are you going?
    Where do you go?
    Where are you going?
    Where do you go?

    I am no superman.
    I have no answers for you.
    I am no hero, aww that's for sure.
    But I do know one thing:
    That's where you are, is where I belong.
    I do know where you go, is where I wanna be.


    Where are you going?
    Where?
    Well, let's go.

    Another beautiful, sad song that fits burned-out season 8 Sara, to Grissom:

    Things I Never Needed
    by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

    Take a long hard look at my face
    Take away the things I can't replace
    Take my heart, go on, take it away
    I've got nothing to say

    Take away this sense of regret
    Take the things I need to forget
    Take the mistakes I haven't made yet
    They're all I have left

    I don't want to be the one who lets you down
    All I did was run myself around
    I wish I could have seen through your eyes
    Maybe then I would have realized
    I'm the only one who's bleeding
    For the things I never needed
    Things I never needed

    Take a good long look at yourself
    Take the weight off everyone else
    Take the hardest blow that was dealt
    It's all on your shoulders

    I don't want to be the one who lets you down
    All I did was run myself around
    I wish I could have seen through your eyes
    Maybe then I would have realized
    I'm the only one who's bleeding
    For the things I never needed
    Things I never needed

    I don't want to be the one who lets you down
    All I did was run myself around
    I wish I could have seen through your eyes
    Maybe then I would have realized
    I'm the only one who's bleeding
    For the things I never needed
    Things I never needed

    This one is a few years old, but it's a beautiful song and I think it's perfect for Sara and Grissom now:

    Chasing Cars
    by Snow Patrol

    We'll do it all
    Everything
    On our own

    We don't need
    Anything
    Or anyone

    If I lay here
    If I just lay here
    Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

    I don't quite know
    How to say
    How I feel

    Those three words
    Are said too much
    They're not enough

    If I lay here
    If I just lay here
    Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

    Forget what we're told
    Before we get too old
    Show me a garden that's bursting into life

    Let's waste time
    Chasing cars
    Around our heads

    I need your grace
    To remind me
    To find my own

    If I lay here
    If I just lay here
    Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

    Forget what we’re told
    Before we get too old
    Show me a garden that's bursting into life

    All that I am
    All that I ever was
    Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see

    I don't know where
    Confused about how as well
    Just know that these things will never change for us at all

    If I lay here
    If I just lay here
    Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

    Finally thought of one, haven't been able to lately

    I often think of Grissom when I hear this one :)

    Hard To Love by Lee Brice

    I am insensitive I have a tendency to pay more attention to the things that
    I need.
    Sometimes I drink to much, sometimes I test your trust, sometimes I dunno
    Why you're staying with me?

    I'm hard to love, hard to love, I don't make it easy, I couldn't do it if I
    Stood where you stood
    I'm hard to love, hard to love, you say that you need me, I don't deserve
    It but I love that you love me. goood

    I am a short fuse, I am a wrecking ball crashing into your heart like I do
    You're like a Sunday morning full of grace and full of Jesus I wish that I
    Could be more like you.

    I'm hard to love, hard to love, I don't make it easy, I couldn't do it if I
    Stood where you stood,
    I'm hard to love, hard to love, you say that you need me, I don't deserve
    It but I love that you love me. Goood
    Love me good

    Girl you've given me a million second chances and I don't ever wanna take
    You for granted, I'm just a man, I'm just a man

    Hard to love, hard to love, oh I don't make it easy and I couldn't do it if
    I stood where you stood.
    I'm hard to love, hard to love and you say that you need me, I don't
    Deserve it but I love that you love me. good. (x2)

    You love me good.

    This is a Grissom POV song, and I am directing it to the CSI writers: please bring Gil home to Sara this season.

    Home
    by Michael Buble

    Another summer day
    Has come and gone away
    In Paris and Rome
    But I wanna go home
    Mmmmmmmm

    May be surrounded by
    A million people I
    Still feel all alone
    I just wanna go home
    Oh, I miss you, you know

    And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
    Each one a line or two
    “I’m fine baby, how are you?”
    Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
    My words were cold and flat
    And you deserve more than that

    Another aeroplane
    Another sunny place
    I’m lucky, I know
    But I wanna go home
    Mmmm, I’ve got to go home

    Let me go home
    I’m just too far from where you are
    I wanna come home

    And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life
    It’s like I just stepped outside
    When everything was going right
    And I know just why you could not
    Come along with me
    'Cause this was not your dream
    But you always believed in me

    Another winter day has come
    And gone away
    In even Paris and Rome
    And I wanna go home
    Let me go home

    And I’m surrounded by
    A million people I
    Still feel all alone
    Oh, let me go home
    Oh, I miss you, you know

    Let me go home
    I’ve had my run
    Baby, I’m done
    I gotta go home
    Let me go home
    It will all be all right
    I’ll be home tonight
    I’m coming back home

    Continuing the 'home' theme, this is a beautiful song for Sara's POV (I suppose it would also fit Grissom in season 8). Either way, they're each other's 'home':

    Come Home
    by Ryan Adams


    You built this house
    Built it stone by stone
    Hammer in your hand
    You built this home
    This house is strong
    You raised it with your love
    A shelter from the winds
    From the cold and dark

    Nobody has to cry
    To make it seem real
    Nobody has to hide
    The way that they feel
    If you'll stay right here
    Tomorrow you'll be fine
    I will be here for you
    Standing by your side
    So come home
    Come home

    You built those walls
    To hide your fears inside
    We were younger then
    It's safe now to come outside
    We built this home
    On this little piece of land
    The sky above is dark
    No rain comes in

    Nobody has to cry
    To make it seem real
    Nobody has to hide
    The way that they feel
    If you'll stay right here
    Tomorrow you'll be fine
    I will be here for you
    Standing by your side
    So come home
    Come home

    As the storm grows stronger deeper and wide
    My face a winding river with no riverside
    As the years grow longer I will be here by your side
    Ashes to dust and storm by storm
    Forever I will always be your love

    Nobody has to cry
    To make it seem real
    Nobody has to hide
    The way that they feel
    If you'll stay right here
    Tomorrow you'll be fine
    I will be here for you
    Standing by your side
    So come home
    Come home
    Come home
    Come home

    Another Ryan Adams song; this one is Grissom's POV:

    I Love You But I Don't Know What To Say
    by Ryan Adams

    We belong here, we belong here
    Ain’t nobody that can tell us we’re wrong
    Hear me say, say this to you
    I’ll stand by your side, to see you through

    I promise you that I’ll keep you safe from harm
    I’ll love you all the rest of my days
    When the night is silent and we seem so far away
    Oh I love you but I don’t know what to say

    I was lost, I was lost
    Tried to find the balance, got caught up in the cost
    Let it go, when I met you
    All the clouds parted, all that light came shining through

    I promise you I will keep you safe from harm
    And love you all the rest of my days
    When the night is silent and we seem so far away
    Oh I love you and I don’t know what to say

    I promise you that I will keep you safe from harm
    And love you all the rest of my days
    When the night is silent and we seem so far away
    Oh I love you and I don’t know what to say
    Oh I love you and I don’t know what to say

    I think the lyrics speak for themselves: "All we are is everything that's right."
    I'm calling this Grissom's POV:

    All We Are
    by One Republic

    Tried to paint you a picture, the colors were all wrong
    Black and white didn't fit you and all along
    You were shaded with patience, your strokes of everything
    That I need just to make it and I can see that

    Lord knows I've failed you time and again
    But you and me are alright​

    We won't say our goodbyes
    You know it's better that way
    We won't break, we won't die
    It's just a moment of change
    All we are, all we are
    Is everything that's right
    All we need, all we need
    A lover's alibi​

    I walked a minute in your shoes, they never would've fit
    I figured there's nothing to lose, I need to get
    Some perspective on these words before I write them down
    You're an island and my ship has run aground ​

    Lord knows I fail you time and again
    But you and me, we're alright​

    We won't say our goodbyes
    You know it's better that way
    We won't break, we won't die
    It's just a moment of change
    All we are, all we are
    Is everything that's right
    All we need, all we need
    A lover's alibi​

    Every single day that I can breathe
    You change my philosophy
    I'm never gonna let you pass me by ​

    So don't say your goodbyes
    You know it's better that way
    We won't break, we won't die
    It's just a moment of change ​

    So don't say your goodbyes
    You know it's better that way
    We won't break, we won't die
    It's just a moment of change
    All we are, all we are
    Is everything that's right
    All we need, all we need
    A lover's alibi​

    We won't say our goodbyes
    You know it's better that way
    We won't break, we won't die
    It's just a moment of change​

    Some nice Keith Urban for Grissom's POV:

    Got It Right This Time
    by Keith Urban

    She believes in me like I’ve been tryin’ to do
    I’m seein’ things I’ve never seen before
    Ever since she came into my life
    I’ve been a better man

    Run run runnin’ I was runnin’ scared
    Always lookin’ for a place to leave
    I couldn’t seem to find where I belonged
    ‘Til she took my hand

    We can make this work out baby
    I know it’s true
    I can’t picture myself with no one but you
    And I think I got it right this time

    All my life I’ve been lookin’ for someone
    Who believes in love the way I do
    I know I’ve made my share of big mistakes
    But girl I promise you

    We can make this work out baby
    I know it’s true
    I can’t picture myself with no one but you
    And I think I got it right this time

    True believers always find each other
    And here we are
    I always knew that you were out there
    Just waitin’ on me
    For me to find my way, find my way to your heart

    We can make this work out baby
    I know it’s true
    I can’t picture myself with no one but you
    And I think I got it right this time

    Yeah after all the crazy days I made it through
    I can’t picture myself with no one but you
    And I think I got it right this time

    Listening to some new music and heard this beautiful song that reminded me of GSR; especially fits well with Sara's POV in season 8, I think:

    Ghosts That We Knew
    by Mumford & Sons

    You saw my pain, washed out in the rain
    Broken glass, saw the blood run from my veins
    But you saw no fault, no cracks in my heart
    And you knelt beside my hope torn apart
    But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
    And we'll live a long life

    So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
    'Cause oh that gave me such a fright
    But I will hold as long as you like
    Just promise me we'll be alright

    So lead me back
    Turn south from that place
    And close my eyes from my recent disgrace
    'Cause you know my call
    And we'll share my all

    So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
    'Cause oh that gave me such a fright
    But I will hold as long as you like
    Just promise me we'll be alright

    But hold me still, bury my heart on the cold
    And hold me still, bury my heart next to yours

    So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
    'Cause oh that gave me such a fright
    But I will hold on with all of my might
    Just promise me we'll be alright

    And the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
    And we'll live a long life

    You can't have a complete playlist without one from The Boss. This beautiful song works for either Grissom or Sara's POV, but I'm going to call it Grissom's POV post episode 9x10, after they are reunited in Costa Rica:


    If I Should Fall Behind
    by Bruce Springsteen


    We said we'd walk together, baby, come what may
    That come the twilight should we lose our way
    If as we're walkin' a hand should slip free
    I'll wait for you
    And should I fall behind
    Wait for me

    We swore we'd travel, darlin', side by side
    We'd help each other stay in stride
    But each lover's steps fall so differently
    But I'll wait for you
    If I should fall behind
    Wait for me

    Now everyone dreams of a love lasting and true
    But you and I know what this world can do
    So let's make our steps clear that the other may see
    And I'll wait for you
    Should I fall behind
    Wait for me

    Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
    There 'neath the oak's bough soon we will be wed
    Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
    I'll wait for you
    And should I fall behind
    Wait for me

    I'll wait for you
    Should I fall behind
    Wait for me

    I'll wait for you
    Should I fall behind
    Wait for me

    Yeah, I'll wait for you
    Should I fall behind
    Wait for me

    Another beautiful song from The Boss. This one is also for Grissom in season 9.

    Back In Your Arms
    by Bruce Springsteen

    In my dream our love was lost, I lived by luck and fate
    I carried you inside of me, prayed it wouldn't be too late
    Now I'm standin' on this empty road where nothin' moves but the wind
    And honey I just wanna be back in your arms
    Back in your arms again
    Back in your arms
    Back in your arms again

    You said once I was your treasure, and I saw your face in every star
    But the promises we make at night, oh that's all they are
    Unless we fill them with faith and love, they're empty as the howlin' wind
    Now honey I just wanna be back in your arms
    Back in your arms again
    Back in your arms
    Back in your arms again

    You came to me with love and kindness
    But all my life I've been a prisoner of my own blindness
    I met you with indifference and I don't know why

    Now I wake from my dream, I wake from my dream to this world
    Where all is shadow and darkness and above me a dark sky unfurls
    And all the love I've thrown away and lost I'm longin' for again
    Now there's nothin' I wouldn't do if I could be back in your arms
    Back in your arms again
    Back in your arms
    Back in your arms again

    As we have learned recently on the show, Sara misses Grissom. Whenever I think of a song about someone living far away from the person they love, I think of this beautiful, melancholy Simon & Garfunkel ballad.

    Kathy's Song
    by Paul Simon

    I hear the drizzle of the rain
    Like a memory it falls
    Soft and warm continuing
    Tapping on my roof and walls.

    From the shelter of my mind
    Through the window of my eyes
    I gaze beyond the rain-drenched streets
    To a land where my heart lies.

    My mind's distracted and diffused
    My thoughts are many miles away
    They lie with you when you're asleep
    And kiss you when you start your day.

    Many times I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    And as I watch the drops of rain
    Weave their weary paths and die
    I know that I am like the rain
    There but for the grace of you go I.

    Two more beautiful, melancholy songs about being apart from the one you love.
    These are vintage Carole King (and two of her best, IMO):

    So Far Away

    So far away
    Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
    It would be so fine to see your face at my door
    It doesn't help to know that you're just time away

    Long ago I reached for you
    And there you stood
    Holding you again could only do me good
    How I wish I could
    But you're so far away

    One more song about moving along the highway
    Can't say much of anything that's new
    If I could only work this life out my way
    I'd rather spend it being close to you
    But you're so far away

    Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
    It would be so fine to see your face at my door
    It doesn't help to know you're so far away
    Yeah, you're so far away

    Traveling around sure gets me down and lonely
    Nothing else to do but close my mind
    I sure hope the road don't come to own me
    There're so many dreams we've yet to find
    But you're so far away

    Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
    It would be so fine to see your face at my door
    It doesn't help to know you're so far away
    Yeah, you're so far away
    You're so far away

    Carole with James Taylor:

    Home Again

    Sometimes I wonder if I'm
    Ever gonna make it home again.
    It's so far and out of sight.
    I really need someone to talk to
    And nobody else
    Knows how to comfort me tonight.

    Snow is cold; rain is wet.
    Chills my soul right to the marrow.

    I won't be happy 'til I see
    You alone again.
    'Til I'm home again and feelin' right.

    Snow is cold; rain is wet.
    Chills my soul right to the marrow.

    I won't be happy 'til I see
    You alone again.
    'Til I'm home again and feelin' right.
    'Til I'm home again and feelin' right.
    I wanna be home again and feelin' right.
