When your partnership is over and you’re dealing with the aftermath, you need some music to fit your mood. After all, there’s nothing wrong with feeling sad over a relationship that didn’t work out. Time spent wallowing can actually help you get on with your life and date again that much quicker.
Good Morning by India Arie
India Arie is known for her soulful, spiritual songs. The longer she lives, the more she experiences and turns those times into beautiful melodies every woman can relate to. On the album Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship there are several songs perfect for the woman moving on in her life from bad times or broken relationships. One of those is “Good Morning.” “Good Morning” starts out with the realization that a partnership has ended.
“Good morning independence or is it loneliness? I know I said I wanted this but I have regrets”
This is not a song about self-pity, however. As the tune continues, Arie sings of accepting that fact that her relationship is over and that she has to now move on.
“Good morning optimism Good morning to my faith Good morning to the beginning of a brand new day”
“Good Morning” is a song that will inspire anyone going through heartbreak. It allows for the sadness of a lost love without dwelling on it. The end offers strength to go on to what life may bring.
Ticket to Ride by The Beatles
John Lennon sings with faultless melancholy on “Ticket to Ride.” The song reflects a man’s perspective as his lover leaves not only their relationship, but the city in which they live as well. If your partner has recently left and you are wondering what will happen next, this is the song for you.
Confessions by Usher
It was rumored that Usher Raymond IV wrote the song “Confessions” after his relationship with longtime love, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas ended. The song has an edgy, fast-paced feel, and tells the story of a man tormented by having to tell his girlfriend that not only has he cheated on her, but the “other” woman is going to have a child as well. If infidelity is the reason for your breakup, give this song a listen.
Always the Last to Know by Del Amitri
The lyrics of this song talk about the hurt in realizing you’ve been lied to from your partner. The love of your life has cheated on you and everyone seemed to know it but you. The tone allows for sadness and a “why me?” type of vibe:
“So you’re in love with someone else
Someone who burns within your soul
And it looks like I’m the last to know”
However, just before “Always the Last to Know” ends the song takes on a completely different turn. The surprise of this lyric is short and takes the listener by surprise:
“Or if he’s cheating on you like I cheated on you
And you were the last to know”
It reminds us that relationships are always a two-way street, the mistakes one partner makes might come back to him or her if the situation is not resolved.
You’ll Think of Me by Keith Urban
“You’ll Think of Me” starts off in the midst of a relationship-ending argument. Keith Urban sings:
Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don’t need’em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you’ll think of me
As one partner is asking for time away from the relationship, the other partner is saying he is finished with the back and forth nature of the partnership. He’s saying, “Go on. Do what you have to do, but you’ll want me back.” It doesn’t however, however allow for reconciliation. After years of being on again and off again, this is finally the end.
Ending a relationship is never easy. But these songs allow you to let the bad feelings in so you can come to terms with the fact that your partner wasn’t the right guy or girl for you. After listening to these sad melodies, you’ll realize there is a new relationship out there just waiting for you.
