10 Songs Everyone Who Lost A Parent Needs To Listen To

Music is a powerful way to connect with others. We listen to music in the car, at work, at a house, or anywhere we can. Lyrics can make us break down and cry or smile. Either way, music is always connecting with us.

When you lose a parent, your world turns upside down. You never know what to think or feel. Music is a great way to look for guidance. Some lyrics will touch you more than others.

1. “… Time can heal your wounds if You’re strong and standing tall

I’ve been doing all of that, it didn’t help at all

They say you’ll grow older, and it’ll get better still

Yes, I will, but no it won’t

They don’t get it, …” – You’re Not There by Lukas Graham

2. I “… So I won’t give up, no I won’t break down

Sooner than it seems life turns around

And I will be strong even if it all goes wrong

When I’m standing in the dark I’ll still believe

Someone’s watching over me …” – Someone’s Watching Over Me by Hilary Duff

3. “… Sometimes I feel my heart is breaking

But I stay strong and I hold on ’cause I know

I will see you again, oh

This is not where it ends …” – See You Again by Carrie Underwood

4. “… If you’re on your own

In this life

The days and nights are long

When you think you’ve had too much

Of this life

To hang on …” – Everybody Hurts by R.E.M

5. “… So I’ll sing Hallelujah

You were an angel in the shape of my mum

When I fell down you’d be there holding me up

Spread your wings as you go

And when God takes you back we’ll say Hallelujah

You’re home …” – Supermarket Flowers by Ed Flower

6. “… Some days I feel broke inside but I won’t admit

Sometimes I just wanna hide ’cause it’s you I miss

And it’s so hard to say goodbye

When it comes to this …” – Hurt by Christina Aguilera

7. “… So hear me out, hear me out

I won’t go, I won’t go

No goodbyes, no goodbyes

Just hello, just hello

And when you cry, I will cry

And when you smile, I will smile

And next time when I look in your eyes

We’ll have wings and we’ll fly …” – Only One by Kayne West Ft. Paul McCartney

8. “… And in my hour of darkness

She is standing right in front of me

Let it be …” – Let It Be by The Beatles

When you lose something you cannot replace

Tears stream down your face …” – Fix you by Coldplay

10. “… Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you

I’m always asking why this crazy world had to lose

Such a ray of light we never knew …” Gone Too Soon by Daughtry
