“Like a ghost,” the memory of the one you love lingers in this song. Every teenage emo must have this song on repeat.
2. Ain’t No Sunshine – Bill Withers
An accompaniment packed with so much emotion. As far as I can tell, Bill Whithers doesn’t need any complicated music to convey life after a significant other is gone.
3. I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing – Aerosmith
Is there someone you’ve ever missed so much that even if you were to close your eyes, you would miss them? Such a thing is conceivable since this song has so much love in it.
4. Someone Like You – Adele
To let go of a person you once cared for is a difficult process. When the love of your life leaves you, you have to come to terms with the truth.
5. Somebody to Love – Queen
Is there anyone who doesn’t enjoy Queen’s music? The protagonist begs God in this song to grant him someone to love.
6. Goodbye My Lover – James Blunt
The song “Goodbye My Lover” is about the pain of saying goodbye to someone you care about. A former girlfriend of Blunt’s inspired him to pen this song about how heartbreaking it is to know that the person you most desire is somewhere else in the globe, waiting for you to claim them. Due to the intensity of the melody and the overriding sense of loss, this song is frequently mistaken for a funeral dirge. Check out our list of songs about pain and suffering right now.
7. Homesick – MercyMe
I’m sorry, but this song isn’t about longing for home. MercyMe wrote a song about longing and loss after losing nine individuals they cared about in a short period of time.
8. Pray – Sam Smith
Sam Smith’s work with the charity War Child in Iraq was a wake-up call for him. He said he had a new perspective on the rest of the world because of the encounter. It appears that the lyrics are begging for someone to come back and pray with them in the last stanzas.
9. Candle in the Wind – Elton John
In honor of Marilyn Monroe and Diana Princess of Wales, this song has been sung. The lives of these ladies were cruelly cut short, yet they were each inspiring in their own way. A second version of this song exists. Diana’s death was the second time Marilyn was mentioned.
10. Dancing On My Own – Robyn
This song was met with a wide range of opinions. While some slammed the song for being too melodramatic, others applauded it. The plot revolves around a woman who dances with herself while watching her ex-dance with another.
