Best Indie Love Songs to Dedicate to Your Special Someone (With Videos)
For all of you indie-loving music fanatics, or for anyone in general, I've compiled a list of the best rock, alternative, and indie love songs. While "Endless Love" and "Truly, Madly, Deeply" are classics, this is a list of my favorite songs that I hope you too will enjoy.
1. All I Need by Radiohead
"I am a moth
Who just wants to share your light
I'm just an insect
Trying to get out of the night
I only stick with you
Because there are no others
You are all I need"
2. Everlong by Foo Fighters
"And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say you win"
3. Echo by Incubus
"There's something about the look in your eyes
Something I noticed when the light was just right
It reminded me twice that I was alive
And it reminded me that you're so worth the fight"
4. I Love You by Under the Influence of Giants
"It's a shame that you've gone losing sleep
When I keep rolling to your song
Wonder how I appear in your head
When I keep rolling, rolling on
I wanted to say that I love you"
A cute and upbeat song.
5. No One's Gonna Love You by Band of Horses
"And anything to make you smile
It is a better side of you to admire
But they should never take so long
Just to be over there, then back to another one
And no one is ever gonna love you more than I do"
6. Falling Into Place by The Afters
"Day and night had come undone
It was the season of my wandering
You found me there
It was the moment that it all became clear"
The Afters have a lot of great love songs as well, but this one is my favorite! Also, check out "Beautiful Love and Keeping me alive."
7. Connect the Dots by Spill Canvas
"If your feet hurt from walking too much,
Then I will tend to them, with a velvet touch.
If your lungs just don't want to work today,
Then I'll perform a mouth to mouth until you're okay."
8. Gravity by Embrace
"And then I looked up at the sun, and I could see
Oh, the way that gravity pulls on you and me
And then I looked up at the sky and saw the sun
And the way that gravity pushes on everyone
9. Promise Ring by Tremolo
"I run to where the space ships land
a million miles between my mouth and hands
hello you, hello me
can't you see?
love is more than what it seems
so I wear your promise ring"
10. Love Should by Moby
"Morning sun is sweet and soft on your eyes
Oh my love, you always leave me surprised
Before my heart starts to burst
With all my love for you"
11. There Is a Light That Never Goes Out by The Smiths
"And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine"
A bit morbid, but romantic!
12. Closer by Travis
"And when I see you then I know it will be next to me
And when I need you then I know you will be there with me
I'll never leave youJust need to get closer, closer"
13. Something About Us by Daft Punk
"It might not be the right time
I might not be the right one
But there's something about us I want to say
Cause there's something between us anyway"
14. Scared to Love you by Like Lions
"This time I tried to put myself in your shoes
Yeah well this time I'm not blinded
And its time you knew I'm not scared to love you"
15. Under the Milky Way by The Church
"Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find
And it's something quite peculiar
Something shimmering and white
Leads you here despite your destination
Under the Milky Way tonight"
16. Let Me Kiss You by Morrissey
"So, close your eyes
And think of someone you physically admire
And let me kiss you, oh.
Let me kiss you, oh."
Okay, this one isn't that romantic, but Morrissey makes everything sound romantic.
17. One Thing Is For Sure by The Spill Canvas
"Sometimes when I let my mind run free
It never fails, it goes right to you,
And a smile takes a hold of me.
I miss the way your body burns, when we melt alone."
18. Honey and the Moon by Joseph Arthur
"We're made out of blood and rust
Looking for someone to trust
I think that you came too soon
You're the honey and the moon
Up my night"
19. Brighter Than Sunshine by Aqualung
"What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine"
20. For The Nights I Can't Remember by Hedley
"You put your world on hold for me
Gave away to follow failure through the fire
I need you to know I will
Believe me, girl, I'm so tired of runnin'
I just wanna hold your hand
Stare at you like you've got everything I need"
21. As The Cold Rain Falls by Tiger Army
"As the grey sky opens my heart sings
I carry a torch as the New Year rings
And I still feel the same after all this time
A future of past on my mind"
22. I Won't Make You by Something Corporate
"And it's been hours now, to be here like this
And just to lay you down
And just to taste your lips
And just to keep me up, God I'm so tired of sleeping
And just to lay inside you, and just to know this feeling"
23. A Twist In My Story by Second Hand Serenade
"So you see, this world doesn't matter to me
I'll give up all I had just to breathe
The same air as you till the day that I die
I can't take my eyes off of you"
24. Different by Acceptance
"Tell myself, on the ride home
Getting tired, hating all I've known
Holding on, like it's all I have
Count me out, when it's clear that I, find it hard to say
And you, find it hard to care
I wanted to see something that's different, something you said would change in me
Wanted to be, anything different, everything you would change in me"
25. Starlight by Muse
"I just wanted to hold
You in my arms
You electrify my life
Let's conspire to ignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive
Now I'll never let you go
If you promised not to fade away
Never fade away"
26. Fade Into You by Mazzy Star
"I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take the breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth"
27. Wonder Wall by Oasis
"And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don't know how
Because maybe, you're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you're my wonderwall"
28. Polaris by Jimmy Eat World
"I feel that when I'm old
I'll look at you and knowThe world was beautiful
Then you tell me...
You say that love goes anywhere
In your darkest time, it's just enough to know it's there"
This song is a wee bit sad, but still sweet.
29. The Truth About Heaven by Armor For Sleep
"I came out here to tell you it rains in heaven all day long
I want to find you so bad
To let you know I'm miserable up here without you."
Okay, so, this song is a little emo. It's a little creepy at first but nonetheless, he still professes his love.
I hope you all enjoyed this list. These are just a few of my favorites!
