Scared– Russ

Yeah, tried to give you everything, I was thinking wedding ring

You were cheating every chance you got while I was faithful now i’m scared to fall in love again” This song is about anybody stopped by the fear of heartbreak, in this case he was cheated on. This is a song people can relate to and many people look for that in music.

Too Good at Goodbyes– Sam Smith

Sam Smith is saying he is “too good at goodbyes” meaning many people or things have left him or he have had to leave them as to say he’s used to it. Sam is known for his angelic songs about love and heartbreak. I personally love this song because of the message and it is just a song I love listening to overall.

Coaster– Khalid

Coasting is almost like the beginning stages of once you’re falling, you kind of float. Khalid sings a beautiful ballad about a possible past love interest. He describes this woman he has loved and he knows that she never treated him the way he wanted to be treated and is afraid to move on without this person. Although he wants her, time passes and he realizes that he will be better without her. “So I’ll be coasting, roller-coasting Through my emotion I will be coasting, roller-coasting I’m hoping that you’ll come back to me. Moving on seems harder to do When the one that you love moves faster than you. I gave you my all, I showed the proof of your lies and you weren’t worth it, you don’t deserve me.”

I Fall Apart– Post Malone

Try to brush it off, but it keep on goin’ Covered in scars and I can’t help showin’ Whippin’ in the foreign and the tears keep blowin’” He is trying hard to get past the heartbreak. He tries to act like everything is fine, but he can’t hide his emotions, and they end up showing up. He is driving his foreign car, likely driving around to clear his head however, he still is crying and feels the pain. That being said this is the perfect song to drive to.

Perfect– Ed Sheeran

Personally I interpret this song differently than others. From many perspectives this song is just about two kids falling in love but the line When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight” speaks words because it is implying that in certain people’s eyes you look perfect.

So Sick– Ne-Yo

In the song, Ne- Yo states that he is sooooo sick of love songs as he’s writing a love song but the catchy R&B beat and song overall won all of us over and is one of my absolute favorites.

Chasing Pavements– Adele

There’s no doubt that adele’s voice is angelic as could be in this song about chasing the man of her dreams. Chasing Pavements is undeniably a great song. Machine Gun Kelly later used a sample from this song for his own “Chasing Pavements” which was different but I love it as well.

Praying- Ke$ha

Around last year, Ke$ha filed a lawsuit against her producer with one of the reasons being emotional abuse. The opening lines of the song are “Well you almost had me fooled, told me I would be nothing without you. Oh, but after everything you’ve done I can thank you for how strong I’ve become.” This powerful ballad was Ke$ha’s first song since “Crazy kids” and it’s safe to say she came back with a bang.

Idontwannabeyouanymore– Billie Ellish

In this song, Billie Ellish faces the tough controversy over the “perfect look”. My favorite line from the song is “If teardrops could be bottled, there’d be swimming pools filled by models.” It is a very powerful song that you can interpret in many different perspectives.

Skinny Love– Birdy

In the song Skinny Love the narrator knows that the relationship is, not where it should be but is praying that it will last because it’s needed. The words “Skinny Love” refers to the idea of a malnourished or an unhealthy relationship between 2 people. In the lines “Cut out all the ropes and let me fall”, there is need of want for the relationship to end therefore cutting free (the ropes). “Let me fall” refers to falling in love and “Cut out all the ropes” could mean being freed from the pain in the past relationship.  

This– Ed Sheeran

Ed had lost everything with the one he loved. He fell to pieces but he is willing to forget. In the lines “And I’ll throw it all away” he is ready to be with her again. Ed is in a stage of the heartbreak where he needs her so badly, but it’s too late. He wants to build “something beautiful” with her but she has gone.

Superficial Love– Ruth B

In the lines “Baby if you want me, then you better need me” I think it really makes you think about wanting and actually needing things. Anybody can “want” you but there are only a few people that will actually “need” you. In the line after that says “‘cause I’m so done, not being your number one” it’s saying she wants to be clearly apart of this significant other’s life and stand out as important. In life there are some people that will invade into your life for the wrong reasons and so this song really shows how to be careful of that.

Like This– Shawn Mendes

This song he is in the state of trying to fall in love with this person. He tried and tried to fall in love with this girl but he “lost this fight” and the feelings just vanished. He knows deep down that he shouldn’t be with this girl but he loves her anyway . Shawn says “ I can try to stop it, all I like. Hands down, I’ve lost this fight. Thought I was strong enough for you, but I can’t hide the truth. I guess I’m going down, like this”, explains how he loves her but he can’t be with her.

Little Do You Know– Alex & Sierra

In this song it all starts with the words “Little do you know”. She then says “Im still haunted by the memories” meaning that the girl that is in the relationship has a dark past and is trying to forget but it’s not happening. She needs time to forget about it. She tells him that she “will wait” for him. The guy in the relationship says that the love between them will last forever. He wants her to confide in him and trust in what he’s saying.

Sign of the Times– Harry Styles

In the beginning of the song it all starts with Harry singing “Just stop your crying, its the sign of the times”, meaning there are emotions here and there. “Final show” suggests death and “best clothes” refers to the following event- the funeral. Harry in the pre chorus states “Why are we always stuck and running from the bullets? The bullets?” The bullets represents the emotional issues. He’s trying to get away from them but it seems to be impossible. Harry uses this in it because he has had so many traumas in his life such as his dad leaving him, friend committing suicide, and One Direction breaking up.

The Climb– Miley Cyrus

In the beginning of the song Miley is facing some challenges. She states “I can almost see it. That dream I’m dreaming, but there’s a voice in my head saying you’ll never reach it.” This means she’s dreaming but that little voice is telling her she can’t. She then states “But I, I gotta keep tryin; gotta keep my head held high,” she is trying to push through. In the chorus she is is talking about the challenges that she is facing. She does want them to stop but know matter how long it takes she will take the climb to overcome them.

Human– Christina Perri

In the beginning of the song Christiana states “I can hold my breath, I can bite my tongue, I can stay awake for days if that’s what you want.” What she is meaning by saying all of that is how she is willing to do anything no matter how bad of an idea it is. She is very loyal and caring to her man. She has done so much for him but it seems that he’s not aware that she’s not “only human” and will soon just break down.

Almost Lover– A Fine Frenzy

This song is mainly about a girl who has been led on by someone and she tries everything that she can to make this guy happy but he neglects her. She accepts with what she thought seems to be real but is gone and now she just wants to be alone.
