5 Heartbreaking Songs

5. Don’t Speak – No Doubt

I think this is the best (saddest) break up song ever. When you’re really close to someone, it’s really hard to accept that the relationship isn’t working out anymore. Maybe because of too much differences or faded feelings. In this song, the relationship is dying but she’s pretending that nothing’s wrong while he is letting go. She cannot do anything to save what they have.

This song can also refer to friends growing apart.

You and me, we used to be together.
Everyday together always.
I really feel  that I’m losing my best friend.
I can’t believe this could be the end.

4. Just A Dream – Carrie Underwood

In the first lines of the song, it seems like the girl is going to her wedding. Turns out, it was her husband’s funeral. He died while serving in the army. I think they got married in the same church, and she is remembering as she walks to the coffin. She can’t believe it is happening so she’s wishing it was just a dream.

Baby, why’d you leave me? Why’d you have to go?
I was counting on forever, now I’ll never know.
I can’t even breathe.
It’s like I’m looking from a distance, standing in the background.
Everybody’s saying, “he’s not coming home now”.
This can’t be happening to me. This is just a dream.

3. Could It Be Any Harder – The Calling

I’ve been listening to this song for years and all along I’ve always thought this was a break up song. Then one time, it just occurred to me that this can be for a loved one who passed away.

I’d jump at the chance.
We’d drink and we’d dance.
And I’d listen close to your every word as if its your last.
I know it’s your last ‘cause today you’re gone.

2. Tonight – FM Static

This is a very sad song. The singer reminisces the moments he shared with that special someone who has died. It’s like he’s remembering all those memories because they cannot make new ones.

Few years ago, I’ve read somewhere that this was about someone’s fiance who died in the 9/11 bombing.

And every night I miss you.
I can just look up and know the stars are 
Holdin’ you, holdin’ you, holdin’ you tonight.

1. Terrible Things – Mayday Parade

This song is about meeting the boy/girl of your dreams but eventually taken away from you. In this song, the singer is talking to his son about meeting his mother. He’s telling him how they were in love since they were young. But sometimes, life gets in the way. She got sick and he was left alone.

So don’t fall in love, there’s just too much to lose.
If you’re given the choice, then I beg you to choose
to walk away, walk away, don’t let her get you.
I can’t bear to see the same happen to you.

Now, son, I’m only telling you this
because life can do terrible things.

Mountains out of molehills

We were watching about James Yap and Kris Aquino since they’re all over the news. It was the part when James Yap’s lawyer was giving a statement.

Lawyer: Let’s not make mountains out of molehills.

Shiela & Sarah: Let’s not make mountains out of molehills. You hit me twice, yeah but who’s counting? I may have hit you three times. I’m starting to lose count. But together, we’ll live forever. ~

HAHAHA! Good times. :D

Okay. I know it’s the other way around. HAHAH! Wake you up in the middle of the night to say “I would never walk away again.”

Song Title: Never Gonna Leave This Bed

I’m Just A Girl

I might be a little concerned with my hair
I might need comfort, more than my share
I might seem to follow fashion, but claim that I don’t care
My heart is your best friend, when it rules my head

I might want to talk a lot, don’t ask me why
And I’ll get impatient if you don’t reply
I might always search for something wrong, I want you to deny
And if you love me just stay close, and hold me when I cry

CHORUS
Don’t try to understand me
I’m just a girl
One of the greatest mysteries
You’ll find in this world
I’m not hard to handle
I’m just a girl

I don’t seek money, but I want your time
‘Cause I’d give my life for you, when you are mine
And it hurts me more than I can say, when you pull away
But if you love me, you should tell me everyday

CHORUS
Don’t try to understand me
I’m just a girl
One of the greatest mysteries
You’ll find in this world
I’m not hard to handle
I’m just a girl

You might think I’m too demanding
But you’re just not understanding

I might like to take advice but go my own way
It’s when I hurt the most I swear I’m ok
And it’s always when you least expect I say I wanna stay
Might take just a single kiss to steal my heart away

CHORUS
Don’t try to understand me
I’m just a girl
One of the greatest mysteries
You’ll find in this world
You think I’m an X-file
I’m just a girl

– I just love this song. The music is catchy and the lyrics are so accurate! :)
