5. "Haunted" — Taylor Swift

41. "Whenever You Remember" — Carrie Underwood

42. "Red" — Taylor Swift

This song uses amazing metaphors to describe how it was to love, fight with, lose and miss the ex.

Lyrics pick: "Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echoes / I tell myself it's time now, gotta let go / But moving on from him is impossible when I still see it all in my head."

44. "Wish You Were Here" — Avril Lavigne

This is one of the rare songs where pain echoes through the otherwise rebellious pop-rock queen's voice.

Lyrics pick: "All those crazy things you said, you left them running through my head. You're always there, you're everywhere, but right now I wish you were here."

      My husband left me to be with another woman. and wanted him back. i was jealous and it made us argue all the time until he vanished away, I was desperate to get him back, I wasted so much time and money on getting my lover back after I have tried almost all possibilities to have him back and nothing worked. I became lonely for 2 years. To make it short, I found a spell caster RAVIDATT VYAS by accident. I don’t know how I found him and i cant remember. But, when I first saw the good testimonies about his wonderful work and after reading the Testimonials, I decided I had to try and give it one last shot. After the spells, a miracle happened, my husband came home. it was awesome, anyone who needs help, should email ravidattvyas522 @gmail . com He is the best. whoever need a spell caster that will work for you and bring back your lover should contact .RAVIDATT VYAS :) :) :) :) :)

      My christian music minister husband of 20 years left me with my 5 children because he said he didn't love me anymore and wasn't coming back. It's very hard for me because i thought we were doing good but he started changing in june 2016 but we didn't fight or anything until that day he told me he couldn't stay in the house anymore. It's so hard because i still love him since i contacted Dr.Oomirimiri on his email: everything change and my husband is back home.

      cc. Thanks to those who has been sharing exulting reviews about Dr. okosun. Their reviews helped me resolve my relationship issues. I’m so excited to also share mine. My lover, our friends and families are all happy for my brave work to get him back. Since after the spell, we’ve excelled beyond measure. 9 months after breakup, my ex was still hunting me inside even when I moved on 2 months after. I couldn’t get him off my mind. I decided one day to look over Facebook to see his face again. I was wounded inside again after seeing how gorgeous and happy he was. I’ve always know he’s my soul mate before the issues that caused our breakup. We do better together because we motive each other. The reviews I carefully read about Dr. okosun.Love Temple gave me great hope and assurance that it’s not too late to get back my soul mate. dr.okosun proved to me after the love spell that the reviews about him and his spell are correct after bringing back my Hero within 4 days of powerful spell work.

      MARTINEZ EVEREST 5 months ago

      Good day, My Name is MARTNEZ EVEREST from the United State of America. I'm so very happy i finally brought back my ex after a long time trying to get him back to me, he was the love of my life. How i got him back was really a miracle, we were separated for 4 months and he stop picking my calls. I was browsing through a site trying to see if i could get a positive advice from the help of a counselor or any relationship specialist on how to get him back quickly, i was so surprise that i saw some comments on the site about a powerful LORD who have helped so many persons to get back to their partner after breakup. Now felt relieved because i believed i have seen the help i have been searching, i collected his email from a lady whom told me everything about his great works and i contacted him without wasting much time, LORD ZEUZ responded to me the next day and he told me everything that happened he assured me he will be back to me in just 3 days after the spell is done. The spell was done and behold everything worked out smoothly, he called me for the first time after 4 months of separation. To cut my story short he is fully back to me now and we are getting married by next week. Here is his email MEETLORDZEUZ@GMAIL.COM. If you are also going through breakup or divorce I would advice you to also seek the help of LORD ZUEZ just like i did and I believe he would be able to restore your broken relationship just like he helped me. Once again here is his email MEETLORDZEUZ@GMAIL.COM.

      I want to share to the whole world my marriage has been a blessing till 4months ago when my whole life almost got sucked. My ex-wife wanted me back by all means and wanted to break my marriage. she set me up in many occasions showing the pictures to my wife that am back to her this made my wife file for an instant divorce and wanted to leave my life in total. And even my 4kids were disappointed in me. But I never have any intentions of going back t0 her. Then, I went to many spell casters but they all failed taking my money away. I lived in grief for 3 good months without any plan of getting out of this mess. Till I met an old school friend who show me to Dr Garuba on, a spell witch who then restore the happiness to my family and my life. He spell worked so fast that I could not even believe it. He's great for as much I can tell. Am still grateful to him till tomorrow for his spell works. My wife canceled the divorce and came back with apologies all for this spell powers of Dr Garuba.

      James and I were together for 3 years and lived together for two until he was moved to another state for job in March of last year.Sept was the last time we spent time together.We went for a vacation and had a fabulous time,not knowing it would be the last time I would see him.He stopped calling Nov,and just sent me a text saying he did not want to talk.I did not pursue it because I thought he just needed some space.March came rolling in,and I found out he got married.How could it be?I found out,shortly before we started dating,he was communicating with a girl from another country and made a trip there once and proposed to her.He made another trip in 2015.She finally came to the country Jan of this year and I figured the reason he dumped me was when he found out she was approved to come to the US.I made the huge mistake of going to the social media and found the woman’s posts of their wedding and trips,etc.That hurt me more than I could imagine.It has been 8 months since I’ve seen him but just can’t get him out of my head.Honestly,I feel very jealous of his now.I wake up in the morning feeling nonexistent,empty and wishing I don’t wake up so I don’t have to feel the same pain I could never get accustomed to.The deceit and the fact that I was used and hurt so bad that I don’t think I could move past it.I decide to seek the help of a psychologist because I knew I was losing it. As I searched the internet, I found cases similar to mine and some,even worse.But all of them sang praises of a man whom helped them restoring their broken relationships,marriages and family…Dr Kene Dilli. I was supprised and decided to give it a try as I contacted his email I found in those testimonies; kenedillitemples AT yahoo DOT com. Behold,after doing all he instructed,he sent me a parcel plus the steps needed as reguarding the parcel.Now,I have got back my lover…James,and he has filed for a divorce with the other lady he married. #HappyToBeBackWithJames.

      I was crushed when my lover of three years left to be with another woman. I cried and sobbed every day, until it got so bad that I reached out to the Internet for help.

Thank you from the depths of my soul! I am extremely happy now. I hope God blesses you as much as you have help me to get my Love back, visit him on ( he can be a great help to you all.

      Hiii, I'm Caro , my ex boyfriend and i we were together for four years and now its been two years since we broke up. The last year of our relationship has been a tough one. Jobs, buying a house, settling down was on my mind but he wanted different things.Slowly we grew apart. I know we both need space some time off. so soon after we stop talking he found a new girlfriend . I was devastated and heartbroken. I cursed his name and even moved to a new city because i felt i need a break from this old life.Now that its been two ears and all the heartbroken has gone I still wished him though what if i had second chances with him. I swear id love him right. we had our downfall and I felt so sorry that I pushed him too hard. He broke up with his girlfriend and sometimes I wonder will he ever think about me.Because for me I still wish for him. i wish i have a second chance with him
