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

That first "whoa" he sings just sends chills down my spine! Such a beautiful voice!

7I Miss You - Miley Cyrus

This song will make everyone cry..


8Where'd You Go - Fort Minor
I like this song and I also link you
Describes the relationship between me and my dad perfectly. Love it
I just love this song. Totally love it

9Here Without You - 3 Doors Down
it's very very touching, always awake feelings and you can't just stay as you are after you heard it once
Love this song, and I love this song. It really describes how I feel when I am missing someone who is special to me. It makes me cry sometimes, this is the first song that I have listened to about missing someone that has hit so close to home and perfectly described how I felt.
I grew up listening to this song,
I remember when they put this song when Eddy Guerrero, the WWE superstar passed away,
Even now... I listen to it when I miss all the people who have passed me by in life...
[Newest]I love this song it makes me cry and it was the perfect song for my situation. thank you

10I Miss You - Blink 182
This song is honestly by far the best "missing you" song I've heard of. It beautifully describes how awful it is to not have that specific special person by your side, and it's not begging for the lover or the special someone to come back into their life. Although it says "Will you come home and stop this pain tonight? ", it's not very whiny. Afterwards they say "Don't waste your time on me you're already the voice inside my head, I miss you." which in my perspective means that the person missing that other person has been affected by their disappearance very badly, that they don't even need the other person to be there, this person is already haunted by their presence that isn't even with them at the moment. It haunts them so deeply, and although they know they miss them and all, they simply state they're missing them and wish things didn't end the way they did. This song should honestly be ranked first, but I'm really happy it was ranked overall in the top ten. Lovely, perfect, beautiful song.
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. :-)
[Newest]Amazing... Makes me cry

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
Really sweet - what makes it different than other "I miss you" songs is that it's about a friend who died - not an ending relationship. When it comes to death, you know it's over, for good. Listen closely to the lyrics and look it up - it's about P! Nk's friends who died from drugs :(. Outstanding song. One of my favorites by her.

12Talking to the Moon - Bruno Mars
Great song, reminds me of my girl that passed away a year ago. Hope you're up there looking down on me.
Bruno mars, just amazing... And this song, makes me cry every time.
I feel ya. same with me

13Last Kiss - Taylor Swift
Simply gorgeous lyrics...makes me cry every time
I just love this song and especially the quote that says:I don't know how to be something you'd miss
You guys just summed up how I feel about this song

14Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
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.
[Newest]How the hell is Avril Lavigne better than the original missing you song

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.
[Newest]It is an amazing song that catch the heart with in the 1st time
Like it a lit

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..
My ex gave me this song. Sometimes he played this song with his guitar when we're on the phone

18The 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.

19Right Now - Akon
This song makes me so sad. it reminds me of the girl I love

20Still Loving You - Scorpions
My favorite song eveeerr, it talks about love fading off for one person in the relationship and the other one says that is worth to fight for it

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
I love this song, it means a lot to me..
I discovered this song just after my ex broke up with me. I still love him, and I always think of him/ I went through bad times when I started drinking a little, so this song always reminds me of that...
I still love this song, but yeah, I don't drink! :D

29The Man Who Can't Be Moved - The Script

Best song about longing for someone: "Think I'll miss you forever, like the stars miss the sun in the morning skies. Late is better than never..."

56Ride - Somo

57How 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.
Nicely said. couldn't have said it better myself

67Good Morning, Captain - Slint

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.

Just a little longer
