You know what one of the worst parts about this break-up is? It doesn’t have a song yet.
I need that one song that I can just listen to over and over and over again and cry to in the car. That song that lets me know I’m not alone in feeling this EXACT way. There’s something so torturously healing about it. Wallowing in your sads, knowing someone else has hurt like you, letting the pain wash over you, and then eventually washing away.
Usually I get a song right away. But that musical kismet hasn’t happened to me yet. So I started thinking about old breakup songs — every relationship I was in had one…
Don’t Speak, No Doubt (yes, it was the early 90s — I even wrote out all the lyrics and gave them to him)
Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now), Phil Collins (I can’t believe it either, but he put it on a mixed cd for me, and it made sense at the time)
I can’t remember!!! This is driving me nuts.
The first time Aaron left:
Why Should The Fire Die?, Nickel Creek
I think the closest I’ve come to finding one is Taylor Swift’s All You Had To Do Was Stay, but it just feels way to upbeat. And, also, Taylor Swift.
Oh well, it’ll come to me. In the meantime, what were your break-up songs? Do you remember them all? Maybe I’ll find the right one in your list…
