Realities of Singleness: The Song

We all have them, whether we know it or not.  It's that one song that we play on repeat after every break up, fight with our significant other, or those times that you just need a good cry.

The other day I was driving to a job site with one of the engineers I work with and she brought up the topic of 'the song'.  She was telling me about this conversation that she and some of her girlfriends had a few nights before and where they were all discussing what song they would play on repeat over and over when they were younger and cry their eyes out to.  I completely knew what she was talking about when she said it, but off the top of my head I could not think of what my song, or songs were.

Now some days later, I know what my songs are so who better to share them with than all of you?
In college my song was "I Can't Forget Her" by Dierks Bentley.
Oh let me tell you, I cried to this song!  I knew and still know every word to it and found this song when I was in the 'hate stage' after a break up.  Let me define 'hate stage' for you: that moment when you still miss him and you would go back to him if he called you the next day, but the best part of it is that you have quit blaming yourself and you are down right mad at him for putting you through all of this.  Some might even say you hate him for the time being.  Not the most healthy stage, but I feel that it is a stage you must go through to truly move on.

After college while I was at my first big girl job my song was "Happy Pills" by Norah Jones.
I do not have a true break up to tell you about for this song, because there wasn't one.  But there were a few men that treated me wrong, or took me for granted and this song was for them.  I would blare this song to and from work and at home in the evenings just wishing to be happy again, and eventually getting there.

Now I would say my song is a throw up between "He Got You" by Kyle Park and "Good in Goodbye" by Carrie Underwood.
These two songs are very different, but speak such words of truth.  'He Got You' is raw and share the emotions where you know you have lost something good.  'Good in Goodbye' is honest and bring hope for tomorrow.  I could listen to both of these on repeat for days!

You now know my songs, so what is your song/ or songs?  I share these with you today because they have provided healing in hard times and hope for a bright tomorrow, and I hope they will do the same for you!


it's crazy how music can make you feel or transport you to a time!
