5Wish 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

Love the powerful feeling in this song

7Who 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.

This is a good song to listen to

8Missing You - Steve Perry

Powerful voice. Steve Perry is the master of love songs.

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

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...

I love this song. This song helped me fall in love with my ex boyfriend and now my current boyfriend. I'm starting to think my current boyfriend is a mistake. He's always trying to hurt me.

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, ...more

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. :-)

If you've ever loved someone with a deep passion and then that precious someone leaves. This song will get to you every time

12Right Now - Akon

This song makes me so sad. it reminds me of the girl I love

13Wish 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.

How the hell is Avril Lavigne better than the original missing you song

14Still 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

15Hey 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

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.

My daughter loved this song..I miss her n love her every minute of everyday..

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.

I dare you not to cry watching the music video

20Bleeding 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.

Best song ever x learned by love 😄 love this one when she won X factor I was pleased

The song about being in a toxic relationship but not being able to let go
