The Top Ten

Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold
"Dear god the only thing I ask of you
Is to hold her when I'm not around, when I'm much too far away... "
Listen to this... It's beautiful... A7x a7x...!


One of my personal favorites, anyone thats ever had to be away from the one they love can relate to this song
I love all of you.I like your songs so much.I always listen your songs.Dear God is the best.
[Newest]This made me cry when my long distance relationship sent it to me.

2Snuff - Slipknot
the greatest love song... its about broken heart feelings...! awsomw band awesome vocals totaly superb song.. everybody should listned to this...

Bury all your secrets in my skin.
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins.
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...

So if you love me, let me go.
And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care.
I can't destroy what isn't there.

Deliver me into my Fate -
If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you...
Ooh, my smile was taken long ago,
If I can change I hope I never know.


The greatest love song! And one of the best songs ever! Beautiful lyrics, awesome great music and it is probably the best song by slipknot. Best song ever
Most people associate love songs to stories about how beautiful love is, and how amazing it is to be in love. This shows the other side of love. The side that lays at the bottom, and comes out when things go wrong.
As Corey sings, "You didn't hate enough to love". And it is true; at the heart of love, there is part hate.
[Newest]I voted this because I love slipknot and my favorite album and my favorite song off that album

3So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold
Lead guirtarist Syn Gates wrote this song, trebute to his bandmate, friend Jimmy... The 'Rev'... this is from there new (2010) album Nightmare..
makes me cry...


Nice song..
Good job syn,,
The Best Love Song I've Heard Ever. Meaningful Lyrics, Fine Guitar Solo, Melody & Vocal. Absolutely Brilliant. I Have To Try Very Hard To Stop Crying When I Listening To This Song. Syn Gates Written It For Me I Think. What An Amazing Lyrics.
[Newest]This is a beautiful song!

4Warmness On the Soul - Avenged Sevenfold
The previous two A7X songs on here are amazing songs but they are more about heart break than about love. This one hits it right on the head. Every verse had me thinking of the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with.
Avenged sevenfold is my favorite band. I absolutely love them and every single song they have. This song is truely great and I plan on playing it at my wedding
Love this song. I will be walking down the aisle at my wedding to this song
[Newest]One of my favorite songs by my favorite band

5Almost Easy - Avenged Sevenfold

6No Matter What - Papa Roach
And if we make it out alive, I promise you these love will never die... I love you for now and then
Its just amazing, I have been looking for a GOOD love song for days now and finally I found this one and its just like what I wanted... The lyrics explain just what I feel for my loved one and that's just what I wanted all along...
I was never REALLY in love with anybody but nevertheless I love this song ^-^

And I don't know why 'I will be there' by Art of Dying isn't in this list... This beautiful song should be in the top 10...
[Newest]Beautiful lyrics. The acoustic version is also amazing!

7Your Guardian Angel - The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Beautiful and cool... Deserve this position...


The first song that was "Our song" with the love of my life. The lyrics, "I will never let you fall. I'll stand up with you forever. I'll be there for you through it all. Even if saving you sends me to heaven. Because you're my true love my whole heart please don't throw that away... " is everything I feel about him. <3

Because you're my true love, my whole heart
Please don't throw that away
Because I'm here for you
Please don't walk away and
Please tell me you'll stay, stay

Use me as you will
Pull my strings just for a thrill
And I know I'll be okay
Though my skies are turning gray
Beautiful song! I am a metal head at heart and I love being able to express how I feel for someone with a rock/metal love song
:-) this song made my day
[Newest]So much emotion in this song

8Without You - Hinder
Personally lips of an angel, but this is great as well!
This song is not exactly a love song. Don't get me wrong it's a great song but it is not about loving someone. It's about how you break up them and you realize that you're better off without them. "It's safe to say that I'm ready to let you leave" don't think a girl would take kindly to that.
This deserves to be at least in the top five wonderful song... Amazing lyrics... Awesome guitar... Full of emotion and feeling.. This song makes me fell strong against my love

9Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses
I like the song, but do you guys know what "modern" means? I think the 80's aren't.


This song is just great

10Far Away - Nickelback
The song is well done.. Instrumentally it is lovely and very correct with words. It is a beautiful song done in a very profession and beautifully done in every way..It really shows the talent of the band and its members.they have great musicians they showcase. The vocalist are heard at their best..
One the best songs from nickelback. This deserves to be at the top of the list. Listen to this guys!
One of the BEST Rock Love Songs EVER!
[Newest]I personally don't like nickelback, but honestly, I love this song so much

The Contenders

11Here Without You - Three Doors Down
The benchmark song for 3 Doors Down...

It is as good as it gets... I don't know anything about any song on this list but believe me on this one... THIS SONG IS GREAT...
The best English love song I've ever heard in my whole life...
Every time evokes a feeling in my heart of deep and burried love
I like this song very much... Here without you... Lonely.. Great song ever
[Newest]Amazing song, reminds me of my boyfriend who passed away

12Thinking About You - Puddle of Mudd
LOVE IT! This song is my favorite love song. I love Puddle of Muddy. This song reminds me about my boyfriend and I can't help but smile <3 I love Wes's voice also
It's mine and my boyfriend's song, the amount of emotional that goes into the song is just immense, always manages to bring a tear to my eye

13Seize the Day - Avenged Sevenfold
Best ever... Makes me cry...! Love Avenged sevenfold forever...!


You'd have to be insane not to try this song out. Very different from a lot of songs, but the message is great and warns the heart.

14Broken - Seether
To me.. one of the best rock love songs.. Amy's and Shaun's voice are so suitable together! And the lyrics are so awesome!
Shaun had Kurt's exciting voice. With this song, you can't find better.
Just an all around great son. The contrast of Amy Lee and Shaun Morgan bring out so much meaning and what the song is about.
[Newest]Yes, this is where it's at! Ultimate rock love song! It's too bad this list turned into an Avenged Sevenfold fan page.

15Through Glass - Stone Sour

16The Bleeding - Five Finger Death Punch
Awesome song a hruaitlunga

Beautiful song written about a deadly disease.
One of my favorite songs
Bury me in all my favourite colours, my sister and my sad thinking about it makes me cry. Love my chem! So sad they broke up! :'(

20Iris - Goo Goo Dolls
This song is beautiful and describes everything that you would want to hear from your boyfriend, this song reminds me of something you would listen to and would convince you to fall in love with someone
Beautiful, Beautiful! I felt in love with this song, the music, the lyrics, It's a very good love song, I heard it a long time ago, and I still listen to it
Every time I hear this song, I think of my best friend and I being together. He knows me so well and hasn't judged me yet.
