If you have seen my Break Up Quotes post, brokenhearted people might treat these break up songs the very same way. When listening to these sad heartbreaking songs, it’s also a time for them to emote, reflect, reminisce and struggle to get over. They would listen carefully and try to relate the lines from the songs to their own situation, claiming the song is perfect for them.

Here’s to those who are feeling broken and lonely. My friend told me before that sometimes, the best therapy for a person to forget is to cry much till there’s no more left to cry. In time you’d realize you have reached your limit of crying and yet you are still alive and well. Makes you realize crying can be healthy to your heart to express what’s inside. So for a good heavy cry, why not play any of these songs for background. That would give you a good moment of realization that everything has finally ended. I’m also giving the lines that I like the most. Some are classics songs and some are new.

The Past by Jed Madela

I must forgive you
You must forgive me too
If we wanna try to put things back
The way they used to be
’cause there’s no sense in going over and over
The same things as before
So let’s not bring the past up anymore

Exchange of Hearts by David Slater

If we had an exchange of hearts
Then you’d know why I fell apart
You’d feel the pain when the mem’ries start
If we had an exchange of hearts

Sometimes I’d rather be blind

Open it up but don’t you leave it alone

Love of my life, you’ve hurt me by Queen

Love of my life, you’ve hurt me

because you don’t know what it means to me…

And it wasn’t you
But I’m convinced

The way he used to smile at me
I hope she doesn’t make him laugh
Because his laugh belongs to me

From the moment we touched till the time had run out

You don’t love me anymore by WEIRD AL YANKOVIC

We’ve been together for so very long
But now things are changing, oh I wonder what’s wrong?
Seems you don’t want me around
The passion is gone and the flame’s died down

It’s not over by Secondhand Serenade
But now it’s over, it’s over, why is it over?
We had the chance to make it
Now it’s over, it’s over, it can’t be over
I wish that I could take it back
But it’s over

Purest of Pain by Son by Four
I wish I could tell you I’m feeling better every day
that it didn’t hurt me when you walked away
but to tell you the truth I can’t find my way

Why by Avril Lavigne

So go and think about whatever you need to think about
Go on and dream about whatever you need to dream about
And come back to me when you know just how you feel, you feel
I can feel, I can feel you near me, even though you’re far away
I can feel, I can feel you baby, why

6, 8 ,12 by Brian Mcknight

Do you ever ask about me?
Do your friends still tell you what to do?
Every time the phone rings
Do you wish it was me calling you?
Do you still feel the same?
Or has time put out the flame?
I miss you is everything okay?

It will rain by Bruno Mars

Just like the clouds
My eyes will do the same, if you walk away
Everyday it will rain, rain, rain…

Stare out the window and I
Think about where you might be

That I’d like to send
If you would just send one to me

So I’m tellin’ you I love you one last time
And goodbye

Where do broken hearts go

And I know that you still care, for me

Separate lives

Somewhere down the road by Nina

It doesn’t matter if you’re gone
I still believe in us together
I understand more than you think I can
You have to go out on your own
So you can find your way back home

Go on and take a bow
But it’s over now

Taylor Swift Break Up Songs

Do you guys know, that instead of calling her songs “country music/songs genre”, most people categorized them into break up songs. Why? Because they said most are about break ups, brokenhearted, separation or just anything about a failed relationship. Some critics even said that every time Taylor Swift gets a boyfriend and breaks up, she end ups with 1 album that becomes a hit! lol. Anyway, here are few of Taylor Swift’s Break Up Songs and if not actually break up, conflicts songs that might lead to break up though. So just consider them brokenhearted songs. It really keeps me wondering how a super pretty lady like her could be brokenhearted and taken for granted for many times? O.o
