3Wish You Were Here - Avril Lavigne
Absolutely the best song by far, I can think of when it comes to missing someone. Because this doesn't only talk about your ex or your lover. It talks about how lonely you can be without someone really special (whether that be your best friend or your ex) and how much you want them to be right beside you!
I have never heard this song before and I was in one of those "i miss you so much and I want you back" kind of moods
Its a good song I like it

10I Miss You - Blink 182
This song is the most beautiful song I have ever heard. It is a song about missing someone that is written in a way that is not whiny and relates to people and real life in many ways. one is that there is no happy ending; when a person you love is no longer there, it haunts you. another is that they want someone they love to come back, but have conflicting emotions about it thinking that they aren't good enough. the other one is a person telling another that he loves her but its too late he is begging for the girl to come back and saying don't waste your time I already love you. the words in your song make you feel what it is saying, there is just so much raw emotion put into a beautiful, seemingly simple song
The refferings about The Nightmare before Christmas gives a special dark touch to that song. :-)
I Miss You should be the first one. It's pretty awesome and such a beautiful song. And Blink182 is one of my favourite bands but I think this is clear.

The Contenders

11Who Knew - Pink
This is one of the most romantic songs I heard. I love this song its very beautiful to listen to. Its about a love relationship that a person remembers and wont forget that person she was in love with and it was a long relationship and she defended the person who she was in love with by this quote "I stand up and punch them out".
She wanted to be forever with the person but they broke up "That last kiss I ll cherish until we meet again". She misses that person.
Love it! Who knew defiantly the best song about missing someone, along with several other songs by P! NK
She is really good at singing and she is going to make a great mum so that's why I wanted to choose her she will make a brilliant mother and I hope for the best future let me know what your baby is called

13Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
IT SUMS UP ALL THOSE FEELINGS YOU HAVE NO MATTER WHO YOU'RE MISSING. I miss my kids that live 2300 miles
Away, but tomorrow is Mother's Day and I miss my Mom
Just as much and she's been gone 40 years now. I picked this out a few months ago and I'm gonna take my guitar out to her grave tomorrow and play it to her. I hope she is looking down and loves it as much as she always loved my playing for her when she was alive :) Love ya Mom!
What a stunning song, simply can't stop listening to it. Every single aspect of a classic flows with this song, all the instruments mix and join to form the most amazing song ever!
I'm suprised this one isn't in the top ten. This song says it all: I wish you were here. One of the best songs Pink Floyd has put out. A classic that sums up the feeling of missing someone very much.

Listen to sample

15Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis
4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. 5 Love is not rude, it is not selfish, and it cannot be made angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it. 6 Love is never happy when others do wrong, but it is always happy with the truth. 7 Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits.
The song about being in a toxic relationship but not being able to let go

16What Hurts the Most - Rascal Flatts
one of the most realistic songs eva..
This is one of those songs that when you think about a person you love leaving your world by death or by leaving your relationship, you know that their love will still be with you.
I love Rascal Flatts. They express so much emotion in their songs and this song is perfect for letting someone know that you miss them.

17Hey There Delilah - Plain White T's
This song rocks! It makes missing someone seem so very conquerable. I wish there were more songs that had this amount of thought put into them. It makes the person listening really understand the emotion behind the lyrics.
Takes me back to my first heart break, the background music matches with the lyrics perfectly. I always loved this song!
Very romantic and touching song.. such depth in the lyrics that it touches your heart at so many different levels..

19The One That Got Away - Katy Perry
This brings back to me when I was a just staring out as a senior in high school. I was 17 and he was 22. He was the one that left me one a personal reason but it wasnt at all a bad ending. Just I look back and I was so young and dumb from where I'm at today. But this song has a bitter and happy part to it for me. It says a lot to me still. But hey its life.

20Still Loving You - Scorpions Listen to sample

21Someone Like You - Adele
"It's simple - just letting go. It makes me really upset. It's my most articulate song. It's just to the point, it's not trying to be clever, I think that's why I like it so much, because it's just so honest, no glitter on it. "
Sums up the feelings when you split with your perfect lover & you both go your separate ways & all you want is to have them back again as it was but you know that won't happen.

22Need You Now - Lady Antebellum

44How Do I Live - Leann Rimes
This song is about loving someone unconditionally. Really just loving someone like hell. Loving them enough that you are nothing without them. Knowing that if they left or if they died you would have nothing left, because it would take away everything good in life. All of the happiness you hold is because of that person. It's a song about true love and not wanting to be without someone. Because imagining your life without them seems damn near impossible.

Vanilla Twilight by Owl City is one of my favorite songs when I'm missing someone. It really connects when you get that lonely feeling and you just want the person you're missing to be right there with you.
I love this song. When my boyfriend left for two weeks for family. He sent me this song and I listened to it for the first time. Then he sang it to me over the phone. I have loved it ever since.

She lies awake, I'm trying to find the words to say
I wish I was, I wish I was beside you
