15 Songs That Help You Get Through A Breakup

Going through a horrible breakup? You’re not the only one. Sometimes life can really suck, especially when the guy you thought was your knight in shining armour ended up being a retard wrapped in tin foil.

Whether your dumping or being dumped, the great thing about music is that it can help you through the hard times. I’m sure many of you, like myself, have sat in your room listening to a song and thought “Damn, I know Beyonce made this song just for me”. Don’t look sideways now. It may not be Beyonce but it was somebody! The reality is you never really notice how empowering a song is until you find yourself in a situation where you can really relate to the lyrics.

I know a breakup happens for many reasons and can cause different emotions, so I’ve tried to incorporate different feelings into my top 15 breakup song choices. Whether you need a song to let those tears out or a song that makes you want to punch the air in your bedroom (your ex’s face in your mind), then we’ve got it. We’ve even thrown in the lyrics where the heart breaks the most. Just be careful not to get yourself into too much trouble. I know you’re probably angry and the hormones don’t help, but do not go busting the windows out of your ex’s car. The last thing we need is for you to be in a jail cell.

If You Left Him…

  1. Whitney Houston – Heartbreak Hotel

Best Lyrics – “I thought that you was someone who would do me right until you played with my emotions and made me cry…I ain’t gon take it, I ain’t gon take it no more”


  1. JoJo – Too Little Too Late

Lyrics – “ I was young and in love, I gave you everything but it wasn’t enough, And now you wanna communication, You know it’s just too little too late, Go find someone else, I’m letting you go I’m loving myself, You got a problem, But don’t come asking me for help”


  1. Destiny’s Child – Through With Love

Lyrics – “Why do I feel so empty, I’m crying out for some stability, You destroy my many insecurities, I’m breaking down somebody pray for me…I’ve given so much in the past for a love I’ve never had. I’m through with love”


  1. Rihanna – Take A Bow

Lyrics – “Don’t tell you’re sorry coz you’re not, Baby when I know you’re only sorry you got caught…It’s over now, Go on and take a bow”


  1. Beyoncé – Irreplaceable

Lyrics – “To the left to the left, Everything you own in a box to the left….Don’t you ever for a second get to thinking, You’re irreplaceable”


  1. Aaliyah – Heart Broken

Lyrics – “You don’t know how I feel, I’m for real. I used to be in love, but not no-more. When will you learn that I got feelings too? You’ll never know until it happens to you”


  1. Keyshia Cole – I Remember

Lyrics – “No-one knew all the pain I went through, all the love I saved deep in my heart for you, Didn’t know where I would go where I would be, But you made me leave. And plus my heart it just, it just kept telling me so”


  1. Shontelle – Impossible

Lyrics – “Falling out of love is hard, Falling for betrayal is worse, Broken trust and broken heart….Thinking all you need is there, Building faith on love and words, Empty promises will wear, I know”


  1. Toni Braxton – He Wasn’t Enough For Me

Lyrics – “Who do you think I am, Don’t you know that he was my man, But I chose to let him go so why do you still act like I still care about him”


If He/She Left You…

  1. TLC – I Miss You

Lyrics – “I never knew how I felt til the day you was gone…Oh I miss you so much, I long for your love, It scares me cause my heart gets so weak, That I can’t even breathe, How can you take things so easily, Baby why aren’t you missing me?”


  1. Tony Braxton – Unbreak My Heart

Lyrics – “Life is so cruel without you here beside me, Un-break my heart, Say you love again, Undo this hurt you cause when you walked out the door and walked out my life, Un-cry these tears I cried so many nights”


  1. Jazmine Sullivan – Bust Your Window

Lyrics – “I must admit it helped a little bit, To think of how you feel when you saw it, I didn’t know that I had that much strength, But I’m glad you see what happens when. You see you can’t just play with people’s feelings, Tell you love them and don’t mean it”


  1. Trey Songz – Love Lost

Lyrics – “You gave me your love I abused it, Now I’m facing the music….When I look into the mirror I see change, Just wish you could see the same”


  1. Michael Jackson – She’s out of my life

Lyrics – “I don’t know whether or laugh or cry, I don’t whether to live or die, And it cuts like a knife, She’s out of my life”


  1. Ashanti – Never Should Have

Lyrics – “Never should have told me you loved me and you would never leave me, Cause everything that you would do, It made me fall in love with you, Until you left and you made that mistake, Now I can’t take you back if I wanted to”
