You think that you'll die without him

You know, that's a lie that you tell yourself

You fear that you lay alone forever now

It ain't true, ain't true, ain't true, no

— Crying In The Club (Camila Cabello)

Song: Crying In The Club

Artist: Camila Cabello

Album: Camila

This song by Camila Cabello is definitely for the people who just got out of a relationship. You might have the feeling that you're not the same without the person you love and you can't live without them. It can be really hard to find the strength to move on and find yourself when you've been through a lot but let this song give you a bit of courage to stand up again and have fun. This song's beat will make you dance and make you move, giving you a little push to finally start moving on and start your life again. Because tonight, there's no crying in the club anymore, right?

2. Too Good At Goodbyes by Sam Smith

But every time you hurt me,

the less that I cry

And every time you leave me,

the quicker these tears dry

And every time you walk out,

the less I love you

Baby, we don't stand a chance,

it's sad but it's true

— Too Good At Goodbyes (Sam Smith)

Song: Too Good At Goodbyes

Artist: Sam Smith

Album: The Thrill of It All

Sometimes, you'll not just have your heart broken once but a couple of times. These heartaches are not that avoidable and somehow, you'll find yourself broken over and over again. This song by Sam Smith is about keeping yourself in a safe distance, protecting your heart from the heartaches you've already experienced before. Because there are times when even you love the person, you're heart can get tired of the pain and saying goodbye can be the easiest option.

3. Too Much To Ask by Niall Horan

My shadow's dancing

Without you for the first time

My heart is hoping

You'll walk right in tonight

Tell me there are things that you regret

'Cause if I'm being honest I ain't over you yet

That's all I'm asking

Is it too much to ask?

Is it too much to ask?

— Too Much To Ask (Niall Horan)

Song: Too Much To Ask

Artist: Niall Horan

Album: Flicker

Of course, falling in love can be the best experience you woud ever have but not all great things last forever. Sometimes, you've got to learn to say goodbye and let go. But it is not easy. Remembering is the hardest part just like this song by Niall Horan. This is about someone still missing someone he has already broken up with. And until now, he still seems to wait for her and reminisce their times together. It's a case of not getting over and it can keep you stranded for a long time. But let's always remember that not everyone will go back to us. Sometimes, we gotta move on. Sometimes, it's just not meant to be.

4. New Rules by Dua Lipa

One, don't pick up the phone

You know he's only calling

'cause he's drunk and alone

Two, don't let him in

You have to kick him out again

Three, don't be his friend

You know you're gonna wake up

in his bed in the morning

And if you're under him

You ain't getting over him

— New Rules (Dua Lipa)

Song: New Rules

Artist: Dua Lipa

Album: Dua Lipa

This popular tune by Dua Lipa is now the anthem of moving on. Creating rules that can help us get over someone is definitely a great idea. Especially, for those people out there that are still trying to get away from their past relationships but can't because they still tend to let that person back in their hearts even though they know they will just get hurt all over again. People seem to be stubborn when it comes to love and relationships. It's not bad to be hopeful but it's also not good to be stupid when you already know what's going to happen if you don't stop, right? That is exactly why this song is such a huge hit. This will help us put ourselves first and protect our hearts from people who's hurt us once or twice before.

Let's have a listen:

5. All I Ask by Adele

Adele - All I Ask

If this is my last night with you

Hold me like I'm more than just a friend

Give me a memory I can use

Take me by the hand

while we do what lovers do

It matters how this ends

'Cause what if I never love again?

— All I Ask (Adele)

Song: All I Ask

Artist: Adele

Album: 25

This may be the saddest break up song of all time. Just imagine being in love and losing that person. It will break you and all you'd ever wish is to have them back even just for a day. They may not love you back but somehow a few minutes with them pretending that everything is just like before is enough to ease the pain, the truth that he is not yours anymore. It is very scary and even if it sounds wrong, you're heart will always want what it wants. Maybe, it is just what you need to actually move on. Because sometimes, those last moments and memories are the only ones you can hold to when they're gone.
