Tears of Neither Joy Nor Sorrow

What do you call the tears that come when you're listening to an entire stadium of people singing along to a song that's close to your heart, especially one that talks about love in some fashion? 

It's not sorrow, not directly. It's sure as hell not unalloyed joy, either. 

Perhaps it's one's heart wishing hard for the same sort of commonality, the same sense of shared humanity, everywhere, and knowing it won't last, but still being uplifted by the mass sharing. 

I don't know. 

Thoughts? Anyone? Bueller?
