11 Songs For When You Need To Say Goodbye (And You Don’t Want To)

  • 0
For my love, Brianna Wiest.

The feeling of saying goodbye is one of the most important emotions in the world because if you don’t do it right, whatever (or whomever) you are trying to say goodbye to is going to linger. You have to do the thing properly. You have to journey the spectrum of goodbye emotions from weepy to pissed off to resolved. You have to send off the person, place or thing you are trying to say goodbye to fully, and be ready to say hello to the next thing.

Goodbye To You — Michelle Branch

We’re not going to wade in here, we’re jumping into the deep end. This is a great song to get yourself in the right head space to begin the goodbye process. It’s sappy and emotional — which is what you need right now.

Wide Open Spaces — Dixie Chicks

I never promised this list wasn’t going to be a cheese factory. Cheesey songs are cheesey because they’re simple and emotional, which is what you need right now.

The Light (Part II) — Mason Jennings

A final moment of feeling sad and pathetic: “Please don’t forget how much I meant to you, when you are redefined by someone new.”

Neon Light — Blake Shelton

If you’re into drinking your problems away (and, who isn’t) this is a good reminder that whatever it is you’re mourning, you can always wash them down with a big pitcher of someone new.
