Music is among the best kinds of medicine to heal a broken heart. When you’re going through a breakup, you can always count on your favorite playlist to be there waiting for you in your room to cry to, laugh to, dance to, or do whatever you need to do. Here are some breakup songs to lift you up and help you get your life back together after the end of a relationship. 


1. “Better In Time” by Leona Lewis

This song will put things into perspective by reminding you that your heartbreak won’t last forever. One day, you might even be thankful for the experience. Even though I really love you / I’m gonna smile because I deserve to” 

2. “Tears Dry On Their Own” by Amy Winehouse

If your tears can dry on their own, your heart can heal on its own, too. It may take some time, but the body and heart are self-healing. 

“We could’ve never had it all / We had to hit a wall / So this is inevitable withdrawal”

3. “Big Girls Don’t Cry” by Fergie

A reminder that breakups can be for the better even when they’re tough. And you can get through it, because you’re a big girl. 

“And I’m gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket / But I’ve got to move on with my life”

4. “Don’t Bother” by Shakira

Be like Shakira and refuse to change yourself for anyone, your ex included. If they couldn’t appreciate you for who you are, they weren’t the one for you after all. 

“I’m really a cat, you see / And it’s not my last life at all”

5. “Someday You Will Be Loved” by Death Cab for Cutie

You can pretend you’re the woman with “eyes like the summer” that Ben Gibbard is singing to. Because some day, you will be loved again, and it will be even better than last time
