Bob Dylan – If You See Her, Say Hello

Pretty much THE break up song. The lyrics below are highlights but the entire song is a highlight. Don’t be embarrassed to listen to the song on repeat for, oh, a entire day.

“She may think I have forgotten her, don’t tell her it isn’t so.”

“Although our separation pierces to the heart, she still lives inside of me we have never be apart.”

There is also an alternative version with the lyrcis: “Although the separation pierces to the bone, you are better off with someone else, and I am better off alone.”


Alanis Morissette- You Oughta Know

“You told me you would hold me until you die, until you die, but you’re still alive”

Cee Lo Green – Forget You

“I guess the change in my pocket just wasn’t enough, I’m like, forget you and forget her too.” Also has the more risque, and satisfying F**k you version for when you are REALLY upset.

Adele – Someone Like You

“I heard that you settled down, that you found a girl and you’re married now. I heard that all your dreams came true. I guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.”

“Never mind I will find someone like you, I wish nothing but the best for you two, don’t forget me I beg, I will remember you said; sometime it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead.”

“Yesterday was the time of our lives.”

Gloria Gaynor – I Will Survive

“Weren’t you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye? Did you think I’d crumble, did you think I would lie down and die? Oh no, not I, I will survive.”

“And now you see me, someone new, I’m not that chained up little person who is still in love with you.”

Bruno Mars – When I Was Your Man

“Too young, too dumb to realise that I should have bought you flowers and held your hand, Should have gave you all my hours when I had the chance, taken you to every party because all you wanted to do was dance, now my baby is dancing but she’s dancing with another man.”

Bill Withers – Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone

“Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone, it’s not warm when she’s away…only darkness everyday.”

Bon Iver – Skinny Love

“Come on skinny love just last the year, pour a little salt, we were never here. My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer.”

“Told you to be patient, I told you to be fine, I told you to be balanced, I told you to be kind, In the morning I’ll be with you, But it will be a different “kind”, I’ll be holding all the tickets, And you’ll be owning all the fines

GOTYE (feat. Kimbra) – Someone That I Used To Know

“Told myself you were right for me, but felt so lonely in your company.”

“But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know”

Green Day – Whatshername.

“Seems that she disappeared without a trace, did she ever marry ol’ whatshisface?, I made a point to burn all of the photographs, she went away and then I took a different path, I remember the face but I can’t recall the name, and now I wonder how whatsherface has been.”

“It feels like forever ago.’

Poison –  Every Rose Has Its Thorn

This songs starts off with a broken-hearted sigh. So perfectly done.

“And now I hear you found somebody new and that I never meant that much to you. To hear that tears me up inside and to see you cuts me like a knife.”

Amy Winehouse – Love is a Losing Game.

“Love is a losing game, Why do I wish I never played, Oh what a mess we made, And now the final frame, Love is a losing game.”

“Though I’m rather blind, Love is a fate resigned, Memories mar my mind”

The Wreckers – Leave the Pieces. A favourite of Nashville actress Hayden Panettiere

“It’s alright, I’ll be fine, Don’t worry about this heart of mine, Just take your love and hit the road, there is nothing you can do or say, you’re going to break my heart anyway, so just leave the pieces when you go”

“Don’t concern yourself with this mess you left for me, I can clean it up you see, just as long as you’re gone.”

The Script – Break Even

“I”m still alive but I”m barely breathing. Just prayin’ to a god that I don’t believe in. Cause I got time while she got freedom. Cos when a heart breaks no it don’t break even.”

“Her best days will be some of my worst. She finally met a man that’s gonna put her first.”

“What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you, And what am I supposed to say when I’m chocked up that you’re okay. I”m falling to pieces.”

“They say bad things happen for a reason, but no wise words are gonna stop the bleeding.”

Eamon – F**k it (I Don’t Want You Back)
