Top 10 Best "I Miss You" Songs

The Top Ten
1 When You're Gone - Avril Lavigne

Just started listening to this song, my best friend moved away and I feel like just about everyone that I used to talk to doesn't want to talk to me and I feel lonely at school a lot. I am starting to think they don't want to talk to me is because they want to be close to her. She was like a sister to me and is like the outgoing side to me, when I'm quiet, and always knew to how to cheer me up. Now I barely have to time to talk to her since I have a lot of homework.

I'm in a long distance relationship with someone who I fell for hard, just like this song insinuates. It describes our relationship perfectly. Won't see him for another 4months.

It reminds me of my best friend that I've been best friends with ever since I was in third grade but last year, I had to let him go. Whenever I miss him terribly I sing this song.

LOVE this song
When I miss my mom (she died from Breast Cancer) I listen to this song... I know it is about couples and whatever but I still like it

2 Always - Bon Jovi

I choked a little bit. What a great song!

I love this song because I miss my best friend and this song makes me feel good

Best song ever... Period

I lose my mom 10 years ago.

3 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

This song reminds me of when I lost my brother. His death date and birth date are within a month of each other, 25 years apart, and after ten years of losing him, this is when I'm thrown back into the grieving process with anger and depression and bartering then after his birth date, I gain acceptance again that he's really gone.

My mom died three years ago I always play this when I think of her..

Best song ever

I love this song

4 Far Away - Nickelback

This song is so heart warming. It is beautiful. It means exactly what it should. Things like, "I miss you," and "I love you," and "I wanted you to stay." Perfect for my school project about a boy whoes parents die. So amazing.

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. Although it made me sad, it totally hit the spot. Thanks so much!

My best friend moved across the country unexpectedly without saying goodbye 983 days ago. I think this song would be a great way to tell her that I miss her

Love this song and he sings it so perfectly. Another great one is Miss You by Nickelback always brings back the tears.

5 Wish 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!

Me and my best friend like to sing this song because my ex broke up with me then a month later hers broke up with her. I still miss him so much though and its been 3 months.

Yea. This song, I really wish they were here.

Love this for all the right reasons. From the Heart, Great vocals (! ) Awesome sound. Beautiful longing.

6 Who 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.

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.

I've always been a huge P! Nk fan. This song is truthful, and I love the part where she says she'd stand up and punch them out... My ex said that he loved my violent side. He thought it was cute...

Perfect song - not only for relationships but describes how I feel about losing my best friend.

7 Where'd You Go - Fort Minor

Love the rhymes with powerful lyrics that just burst me into tears! Catchy and emotional refrain that says "Where'd you go? I miss you so" waah this is SO GOOD

Describes the relationship between me and my dad perfectly. Love it

I just love this song. Totally love it

Just my favorite song of all time...

8 Missing 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!

Great love song!

Love this song

9 I 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

The tracks on the song, produced entirely acoustic, verified by guitarist Tom Delonge, provide an atmosphere of eeriness to the track, as if you're being surrounded by sound. The acoustic tracks all fit together seamlessly, from the chemistry between Mark and Tom's singing voices to the haunting, powerful cello. The vocals convey a mixture of emotions from regret to longing.
"I Miss You" is simply one of the greatest songs ever written about missing someone you love, and a strong contender for Blink-182's best 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

I had never heard this song until a guy sent it to me while we were spending some time apart. I could not believe how much it touched my actually made me cry when I listened to it. It is a very haunting, beautiful, emotional song. I contacted him after hearing this, so I guess it worked.

10 Right Now - Akon

I love this song!

The Contenders
11 Here Without You - 3 Doors Down

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.

It still makes me cry every time and makes me think of my ex and makes me wish that we didn't end it. I still think about him some times and anyone who feels lonely and lost someone, I recommend this song for them to listen to. It's so sad if you just listen to it.

The most beautiful song I've ever heard (tied with "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream" by Simon & Garfunkel, of course). I have spent over twelve hours of my life listening exclusively to this song, with no other songs in between.

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...

12 Still Loving You - Scorpions

Great song, makes me think of someone in my life (a man) and makes me want to cry.

This song is so beautiful it is painful.

Makes my cry missing the man I hurt.

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

13 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

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.

Come on! Why isn't this higher? Great song with amazing lyrics and instrumental work by the great Pink Floyd. Also really relates to this list.

I feel offended that Avril Lavigne's "Wish you were here" is higher, but then this kind of lists mainly attracts young teenage girls.

14 Hey 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.

A couple of years ago, I heard the actual Delilah on the radio discussing a topic totally unrelated to the song (she's a scientist or something,) and the host asked her about the song. She didn't say much other than the relationship didn't last. It broke my heart...

Takes me back to my first heart break, the background music matches with the lyrics perfectly. I always loved this song!

This song just says how much you miss someone and you need them back with you!

15 I Miss You - Miley Cyrus

This song helps a lot, I relate to this song way too much. My Grandma had passed and I went into a depression and I stayed away from everyone, It was like a hole was created in my heart. But for me music mends the soul and that's what this song does.

My best friend died in a car crash while I was there... this song remind me of her. I miss her.

This song will make everyone cry..

It's a poorly sung song...

16 What Hurts the Most - Rascal Flatts

There is just so much emotion in this song. It can explain so many situations. From death to relationships that just had wrong timing. Its for the people that you're going to miss the rest of your life and there's nothing you can do about it.

This song reminds me of a guy I was seeing for a while who told me he was in love with me but later ended up two timing me. I agree. This song has made me cry almost more than any other song. Just writing this is making me teary eyed.

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.

17 Talking to the Moon - Bruno Mars

This song's so good! I moved country almost a year ago and I'm still trying to fit in and I still miss my other friends. This song reminds me of how close they actually are.

Great song, reminds me of my girl that passed away a year ago. Hope you're up there looking down on me.

Epic song, can't stop listening to it while thinking about my girl who had to move out of town. Hope you're missing me too

Bruno mars, just amazing... And this song, makes me cry every time.

18 Last Kiss - Taylor Swift

There is no song that describes the deepest deepest darkness of missing everything about someone as good as this one. "I'll watch your life in pictures like I used to watch you sleep and I feel you forget me like I used to feel you breathe and I keep up with our old friends just to ask them how you are, I hope it's nice where you are. And I hope the sun shines and it's a beautiful day and something reminds you, you wished you had stayed." Tears every time.

It's so true. Your last kiss is so unexpected. You don't think.. "this is it, were going to breakup tomorrow." or next week or whatever. Also I know EVERY GIRL has taken her boyfriends hoodie, sat on the floor and bawled.. I still do for my first love. Then you want to try and make them miss you even though they do, they deny it. This song is my breakup go-to.

I listen to this song all the time. It reminds me of how my step cousin who I love and care about so much doesn't know how much I miss him.

I listen to this song every night before I go to sleep and cry. Taylor captures everyone's feelings after a breakup with this remarkable song

19 Lovers - Jackie Evancho

"Your voice still echoes... In my heart"

Fantastic song from Jackie.

20 Bleeding 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

21 The One that Got Away - Katy Perry

This song, on acoustic is being played on repeat. Because I miss the one who got away and this song says that best.

This brings back to me when I was a just starting 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 wasn't 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 it's life.

The song has such a good meaning to it. the title really catches the eye and brings you in. I would suggest the acoustic version, as its slower and suits the song better for someone looking for of an emotional feel.

22 I Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Aerosmith

The first time I listened to this song, I developed goosebumps and reminded me of my girlfriend I left behind in search for greener pastures

My moms wedding song!

23 Need 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

24 My Love, My Life - ABBA

It really tells a story. So emotional and paints the picture.

25 Nobody Knows - Kevin Sharp

Love this song
