They say that when you’re in love or (God forbid) falling out of love, that’s when all of the song lyrics in the world start to make sense. I couldn’t agree more. So, whether you’re stuck in your room crying over your lost love or are just here for some music that will surely tug on your heartstrings, here’s my take on the top 10 sawi songs of the new generation.
Note: this list is in no particular order.
Top 10 Sawi Songs of the New Generation
Just a Feeling – Maroon 5
“I watched you cry…Bathed in sunlight…By the bathroom door…You said you wished you did not love me anymore”
Here Comes Goodbye – Rascal Flatts
“Here comes goodbye….Here comes the last time….Here comes the start of every sleepless night…The first of every tear I’m gonna cry…Here comes the pain …Here comes me wishing things had never changed…And she was right here in my arms tonight, but here comes goodbye”
Let Me Be the One – Julie Ann San Jose cover
“Let me be the one to break it up …So you won’t have to make excuses …We don’t need to find a set up where …Someone wins and someone loses …We just have to say our love was true …But has now become a lie …So I’m tellin’ you I love you one last time …And goodbye”
Make You Feel My Love – Glee cover
“I could make you happy, make your dreams come true…Nothing that I wouldn’t do…Go to the ends of the Earth for you…To make you feel my love”
Note: Although the Adele cover was flawless, Lea Michele’s silent tears throughout the song will melt any cold heart.
Sorry – Jonas Brothers
” I’m sorry …For breakin’ all the promises that I wasn’t around to keep…It’s all me …This time is the last time I will ever beg you to stay..But you’re already on your way”
All Too Well – Taylor Swift
“Time won’t fly, it’s like I’m paralyzed by it…I’d like to be my old self again, but I’m still trying to find it…After plaid shirt…days and nights when you made me your own…Now you mail back my things and I walk home alone”
Back to December – Taylor Swift
“Maybe this is wishful thinking…Probably mindless dreaming…But if we loved again, I swear I’d love you right…I’d go…back in time and change it but I can’t…So if the chain is on your door I understand…But this is me swallowing my pride…Standing in front of you saying, “I’m sorry for that night”…And I go back to December…”
Half a Heart – One Direction
“And being here without you is like I’m waking up to…Only half a blue sky…Kinda there but not quite…I’m walking…around with just one shoe…I’m half a heart without you…I’m half a man at best…With half an arrow in my chest…I miss everything we do…I’m half a heart without you”
Shouldn’t Come Back – Demi Lovato
“Maybe you shouldn’t come back…Maybe you shouldn’t come back to me…Tired of being so sad…Tired of getting so mad, baby…Stop right now…You’ll only let me down, oh, oh…Maybe you shouldn’t come back…Maybe you shouldn’t come back to me”
The One That Got Away – Katy Perry
“In another life…I would be your girl…We’d keep all our promises…Be us against the world…In another life…I would make you stay…So I don’t have to say…You were the one that got away…The one that got away”
So, there you have it folks! How about you? What songs have made you cry like a baby or has help gotten you through a tough breakup?
