Songs About Breaking Up

Songs About Breaking Up

Life seldom gets more difficult than when a loving heart sees the beloved walking away, and no matter what one says, healing a broken heart back to normal isn't an easy task at all. What you may need at this point are loving and supportive people around you, and a few sad songs about breaking up, to help you vent all that pent up feeling and then move on.
"To fall in love is awfully simple, but to fall out of love is simply awful."―Bess Myerson.

Very genuine and true. Sometimes even the ending of a very rough relationship can leave one with a void in the heart, which is difficult to justify, given that it was ideally supposed to end. Relationship break-ups are always very hard for the soul, no matter how bad the relationship had been while it lasted. However, it is imperative that one bounces back in life. Nobody said that the process of nursing your shattered heart back to health is an easy task. But you have to hope for a better tomorrow, and therefore, gently remove all those splinters no matter how bad and intolerable those initial spasms of pain seem to be. Listening to sad songs about parting with a dear one helps you to relieve all those pent-up emotions, that cannot be put into words no matter how hard you try.

Best Songs About Breaking Up to Help You Cry

Cry, as much as you want. Howl if you wish to, but do vent all those incoherent yet existing sentiments that make you want to crumble after a break up. Broken heart songs are the best stimulants to bring all such feelings tumbling out.

Here are a few heart wrenching sad songs that make you cry which will help you vent all those negative feelings.

Unbreak My Heart―Toni Braxton

Don't leave me in all this pain
Don't leave me out in the rain
Come back and bring back my smile
Come and take these tears away
I need your arms to hold me now
The nights are so unkind
Bring back those nights when I held you beside me

Un-break my heart
Say you'll love me again
Undo this hurt you caused
When you walked out the door
And walked out of my life
Un-cry these tears
I cried so many nights
Un-break my heart
My heart...

Take back that sad word good-bye
Bring back the joy to my life
Don't leave me here with these tears
Come and kiss that pain away
I can't forget the day you left
Time is so unkind
And life is so cruel without you here beside me

Un-break my heart
Say you'll love me again
Undo this hurt you caused
When you walked out the door
And walked out of my life
Un-cry these tears
I cried so many nights
Un-break my heart
My heart...

Don't leave me in all this pain
Don't leave me out in the rain
Bring back the nights when I held you beside me

Un-break my heart
Say you'll love me again
Undo this hurt you caused
When you walked out the door
And walked out of my life
Un-cry that tears
I cried so many, many nights
Un-break my....

Un-break my heart
Come back and say you love me
Un-break my heart
Sweet darlin'
Without you I just can't go on
Can't go on....


Careless Whisper―George Michael

I feel so unsure as I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor.
As the music dies something in your eyes
Calls to mind a silver screen and you're its sad goodbye.
I'm never gonna dance again
guilty feet have got no rhythm

Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool.
I should have known better than to cheat a friend

And waste a chance that I've been given.
So I'm never gonna dance again
the way I danced with you.
Time can never mend the careless whispers of a good friend.
To the heart and mind ignorance is kind.
There's no comfort in the truth
pain is all you'll find.
I'm never gonna dance again
guilty feet have got no rhythm
. . .
Never without your love.
Tonight the music seems so loud
I wish that we could lose this crowd.
Maybe it's better this way
We'd hurt each other with the things we want to say.
We could have been so good together
We could have lived this dance forever
But now who's gonna dance with me? - Please stay.
And I'm never gonna dance again
guilty feet have got no rhythm
. . .
No dance
no dance
no dance
you're gone - no dance
you're gone.
This matter is so wrong
so wrong
that you had to leave me alone.


You can also listen to songs about cheating to quell that burning sensation in your heart in order to deal with it and realize that there was nothing wrong with you that pushed your lover to cheating, but rather his needs and priorities in life were different from yours.

Cry Me a River―Justin Timberlake

You were my sun
You were my earth
But you didn't know all the ways I loved you, no
So you took a chance
And made other plans
But I bet you didn't think that they would come crashing down, no

You don't have to say, what you did,
I already know, I found out from him
Now there's just no chance, for you and me, there'll never be
And don't it make you sad about it

You told me you loved me
Why did you leave me, all alone
Now you tell me you need me
When you call me, on the phone
Girl I refuse, you must have me confused
With some other guy
Your bridges were burned, and now it's your turn
To cry, cry me a river
Cry me a river-er
Cry me a river
Cry me a river-er, yea, yea

I know that they say
That some things are better left unsaid
It wasn't like you only talked to him and you know it
(Don't act like you don't know it)
All of these things people told me
Keep messing with my head
(Messing with my head)
You should've picked honesty
Then you may not have blown it
(Yea..)

You don't have to say, what you did,
(Don't have to say, what you did)
I already know, I found out from him
(I already know, uh)
Now there's just no chance, for you and me, there'll never be
(No chance, you and me)
And don't it make you sad about it

You told me you loved me
Why did you leave me, all alone
(All alone)
Now you tell me you need me
When you call me, on the phone
(When you call me on the phone)
Girl I refuse, you must have me confused
With some other guy
(I'm not like them baby)
Your bridges were burned, and now it's your turn
(It's your turn)
To cry, cry me a river
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river-er
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river
(Baby go on and just)
Cry me a river-er, yea, yea

The damage is done
So I guess I be leaving
The damage is done
So I guess I be leaving
The damage is done
So I guess I be leaving
The damage is done
So I guess I be... leaving

You don't have to say, what you did,
(Don't have to say, what you did)
I already know, I found out from him
(I already know, uh)
Now there's just no chance, for you and me, there'll never be
(No chance, you and me)
And don't it make you sad about it

Cry me a river
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river-er
(Baby go on and just)
Cry me a river
(You can go on and just)
Cry me a river-er, yea, yea

Cry me a river
(Baby go on and just)
Cry me a river-er
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river
(Cause I've already cried)
Cry me a river-er, yea, yea
(Ain't gonna cry no more, yea-yea)

Cry me a river
Cry me a river, oh
Cry me a river, oh
Cry me a river, oh.


Last Christmas―George Michael

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby do you recognize me?
Well it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me

(Happy Christmas!) I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying "I Love You" I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again

(CHORUS)

(Oooh. Oooh, Baby)

A crowded room, friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you and your soul of ice
My God I thought you were someone to rely on
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man undercover but you tore me apart
Oooh, oooh
Now I've found a real love you'll never fool me again
(CHORUS)

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
(Gave you my heart)
A man undercover but you tore me apart
Next year
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special
special
someone
someone
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special
who'll give me something in return
I'll give it to someone
hold my heart and watch it burn
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special
I've got you here to stay
I can love you for a day
I thought you were someone special
gave you my heart
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone
last Christmas I gave you my heart
you gave it away
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone.


Sad Love Songs to Soothe the Soul

Sometimes, a break-up may not be the fault of either of the partners, but cruel circumstances or ideological differences may just come in the way of love. After songs about break up have helped you to drain all the disillusionment, you can always look back and reminisce all those good times that had kept the two of you together. Remember, bitterness hinders the healing process of the heart and induces depression. So, try to see things as they were. Here are some sad love songs dripping with a deep sense of heart-ripping melancholy and yet are brazenly realistic.

Annie's Song―John Denver

You fill up my senses
Like a night in the forest
Like a mountain in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again

Come let me love you
Let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter
Let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come let me love you
Come love me again

Let me lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come let me love you
Come love me again

You fill up my senses
Like a night in the forest
Like a mountain in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again.


I Hate This Part―The Pussy Cat Dolls

We're driving slow through the snow on 5th Avenue
And right now radio's all that we can hear
Now we ain't talked since we left, it's so overdue
It's cold outside but between us it's worse in here

The world slows down
But my heart beats fast right now
I know this is the part
Where the end starts

I can't take it any longer
Thought that we were stronger
All we do is linger
Slipping through my fingers

I don't wanna try now
All that's left's goodbye to
Find a way that I can tell you

I hate this part right here
I hate this part right here
I just can't take your tears
I hate this part right here

Everyday, seven takes of the same old scene
Seems we're bound by the laws of the same routine
Gotta talk to you now 'fore we go to sleep
But will we sleep once I tell you what's hurting me?

The world slows down
But my heart beats fast right now
I know this is the part
Where the end starts

I can't take it any longer
Thought that we were stronger
All we do is linger
Slipping through our fingers

I don't wanna try now
All that's left's goodbye to
Find a way that I can tell you

I hate this part right here
I hate this part right here
I just can't take your tears
I hate this part right here

I know you'll ask me to hold on
And carry on like nothing's wrong
But there is no more time for lies
'Cause I see sunset in your eyes

I can't take it any longer
Thought that we were stronger
All we do is linger
Slipping through our fingers

I don't wanna try now
All that's left's goodbye to
Find a way that I can tell you

I hate this part right here
I hate this part right here
I just can't take these tears
I hate this part right here.


Songs to Help You Move On

After all the tears and woeful songs about breaking up, comes a time when you need to rise from the ashes and get back into shape. Reconcile with your partner if even an inkling of such a chance remains, as I truly believe that no relationship is impossible to work out if both the partners are willing. But if that's not an option, then just shed the garb of lament and move on. Life's too short to waste in a state of sorrow. Get out and you shall see what a glorious future awaits you. Believe that God has someone better in store for you. Besides, you are an individual, and thus, be given the maximum importance by yourself.

A New Day Has Come―Céline Dion

A new day has...come

I was waiting for so long
For a miracle to come
Everyone told me to be strong
Hold on and don't shed a tear

Through the darkness and good times
I knew I'd make it through
And the world thought I had it all
But I was waiting for you

Hush, love

I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me
I can't believe
I've been touched by an angel with love
Let the rain come down and wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul and drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun
A new day has...come

Where it was dark now there's light
Where there was pain now there's joy
Where there was weakness, I found my strength
All in the eyes of a boy

Hush, love

I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me
I can't believe
I've been touched by an angel with love
Let the rain come down and wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul and drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun
A new day has...come.


So, life isn't all that bad is it? Go on and pursue new adventures to help you deal with a break up. Easier said than done, I know, but you have to do it sometime or the other. Take your time, cry with these songs about breaking up, but come back to life as, believe me, there are other more important people craving to see that sunshine smile back on that face!
