Best Indie/Rock Love Songs to Dedicate to Your Special Someone
For all of you emo/indie loving music fanatics.. Or just.. you people in general.. haha I've compiled a list of the best rock, alternative, and indie love songs. "Endless Love" and "Truly, Madly, Deeply" are classics but for you rock lovers, 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 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 when"
3.) Echo by Incubus- (Probably the most romantic song by Incubus so far!) "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 Infuence of Giants- A cute and upbeat song! "It's a shame that you're 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."
5.) No One's Gonna Love You by Band of Horses- "And anything to make you smile
It is my better side of you to admire
But they should never take so long
Just to be over then back to another one
But 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, somehow, somewhere you found me there, that moment that it all became clear" The Afters have a lot of great love songs as well, but this one is my favorite! 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 I looked up at the sun and I could se, Oh the way that gravity turns on you and me. and then I looked up to the sun and saw the sky and the way that gravity pulls on you and I."
9.) Promise Ring by Tremolo- "I'd run to where the spaceships land
A million miles between my mouth and hand. Hello you,
Hello me Hello Hello ,
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
I feel my heart starts to burst with all my love for you"
11.) Warning Signs by Coldplay- "Warning signs, I missed the good part and I realized I started looking and the bubble burst. I started looking for excuses. Come on in, I've got to tell you what a state I'm in. I've got to tell you in my loudest tones that I started looking for a warning sign when the truth is, I miss you."
There are a lot of great songs by Coldplay! It was hard to choose just one.
12.) There is a light that never goes out by The Smiths- "And if a double-decker bus
crashes in to 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 =)
13.) Closer by Travis- "And when I see you then I know it will be next to m, And when I need you then I know you will be there with me, I'll never leave you. Just need to get closer."
14.) 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"
15.) Scared to Love you by Like Lions- "This time I tried to put myself in your shoe, Yea well this time I'm not blind and its time you knew, I'm not scared to love you."
16.) Under the Milky Way by The Church- "I wish I know "Wish I knew what you were looking for. Might have known what you would find. And its something quite peculiar,
Something thats shimmering and white. Leads you here despite your destination, Under the milky way tonight"
17.) Let Me Kiss You by Morrissey- "Close your eyes, and think of someone you physically admire. Let me kiss you, Ohhh let me kiss you." - Okay, this one isn't that romantic, but Morrissey makes everything sound it =)

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."
19.) Honey and the Moon by Joseph Arthur- "We're made out of blood and rust
Looking for someone to trust without a fight. I think that you came too soon
You're the honey and the moon that lights up my night."
20.) Brighter Than Sunshine by Aqualung- "What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine. Brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, i don't care, I'm yours and suddenly you're mine."
21.) For The Nights I Can't Remember by Hedley- "You put your world on hold for me
Gave away to follow, feel you through the fire, I need you to know I will
Believe me girl I'm so tired of running, I just wanna hold your hand
Stare at you like you've got everything I need"
22.) 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"

25.) 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.'
26.) Starlight by Muse- "I just wanted to hold you in my arms. My life you electrify my life
Let's conspire to re-ignite all the souls that would die just to feel alive
I'll never let you go, If you promise not to fade away, never fade away"
27.) Fade Into You by Mazzy Star- "I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true, I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth"
28.) 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."
29.) Polaris by Jimmy Eat World- "I feel that when I'm old, I'll look at you and know, The world was beautiful. Then you tell me, You say that love goes anywhereIn your darkest time, it's just enough to know it's there" -- This song is a wee bit sad, but still sweet.
30.) The Truth About Heaven by Armor For Sleep- "I came down here to tell you that 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 by emo, this song is what I meant.. It's a little creepy at first but nonetheless, he still professes his love.. =)
I hope you all enjoyed this list. This is just a few of my favorites!
