5 Break-up Songs That Make You Think

You tell me that you’re leavin’,

I can’t believe it’s true!

Girl, there’s just no livin’ without you.

Don’t take your love away from me.

Don’t you leave my heart in misery.

‘Cause if you go, then I’ll be blue,

Breakin’ up is hard to do.

At the same time, however, one’s affection for each other can often be derailed by all manner of negative emotions and actions.
