3 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

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

This is the best song that I know! I also think this is one of the best songs by GREEN DAY. AWESOME!

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.

I love this song as it always think about my mum

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!

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

I loved this song

7 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.

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

Pink is 34 years old

8 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.

That you miss your friend and cousin

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

Love thid song so much wish iknow how put it on my mobile x

Absolutely Beautiful

Great love song!

10 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

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 don't know why it just speaks to me

The Newcomers

? Far Away - Tyga

This song is me and my big brothers song. Well my godbrother. He lives a, two and a half hours away from me I feel like it's a thousand miles. I miss him. We barley see eachother about every three weeks. He says this song suites me so it reminds me of him..

The Contenders

11 Here 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.

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.

My husband died in May...

13 Talking 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.

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

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.

14 Hey There Delilah - Plain White T's

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...

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!

I was looking for memory by sugarcolt, but I can't say no to thissong

15 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 when I'm sad. IT'S SO GOOOD

16 Wish 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.

It's something... Without unnecessary sweetness and with very strong emotion in the end of song.

17 Still Loving You - Scorpions

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

Makes my cry missing the man I hurt.

I'm loving this, it makes me wanna cry

18 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

I looove this song

You are beautiful girl I your age to my girl friend 👉🏼👌🏽

19 The 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.

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

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.

Its great

20 What 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.

This reminds me of my baby that passed away after 16 wonderful years together. I cry with the loneliness.

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

LOVE THIS SONG! It's so good it says everything! It's a little sad but it's still a great missing you song. He's just waiting and waiting and waiting because he loves her more than he could love anyone else! It's really sweet!

This is exactly how I feel toward the girl I love. :, (

33 Tears In Heaven - Eric Clapton

This song was actually written for his soon that died. More meaningful than any breakup song.

34 Someone 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.

I cry hearing this song. It's my favorite song and I always think of my ex. It is good tears too. With Adele songs you always feel her soul with her music. This song is always sung back to her by her fans. It is something to see her live and singing it with her.

Love it 😊

39 I'm Lost Without You - Blink 182

Sad but awesome song

Blink-182 are honestly my all time favourite band and this gives you the side of them that aren't always displayed due to the fact they're a punk rock band, so this just shows the slow affectionate side x

Amazing song

40 Patience - Guns N' Roses
