11 Pop Songs That You Totally Think Are Written About Your Life, But Are Actually Just Really Relatable

1. Lego House by Ed Sheeran

“I’m gonna pick up the pieces and build a Lego house
If things go wrong we can knock it down.
My three words have two meanings but there’s one thing on my mind
It’s all for you.”

These lyrics perfectly describe trial and error, which of course is a universal feeling. Ed’s lego house is not the only one that has been knocked down.

2. See You Again by Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Puth

“It’s been a long day without you, my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again.”

We all have a loved one that we miss, and can’t wait to see again, and Wiz and Charlie have a beautiful way of describing it.

3. Titanium by David Guetta

“Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium.”

We are all indestructible, or at least we like to think we are.

4. Human by Christina Perri

“But I’m only human,
And I bleed when I fall down.
I’m only human.
And I crash and I break down.
Your words in my head, knives in my heart,
You build me up and then I fall apart
‘Cause I’m only human.”

Christina Perri humbles us all. Being human is pretty relatable.

5. Not Like The Movies by Katy Perry

“I didn’t feel the fairytale feeling, no.
Am I a stupid girl for even dreaming that I could?
If it’s not like the movies,
That’s how it should be.”

Most people are not living fairytales, or romantic comedies.

6. Let Her Go by Passenger

“Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go”

Everyone knows what it feels like to only miss something when it’s gone.

7. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together by Taylor Swift

“We are never ever ever getting back together,
We are never ever ever getting back together,
You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together.”

That one person who you will never ever get back together with just popped into your head.

8. Apologize by One Republic

“You tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but wait
You tell me that you’re sorry
Didn’t think I’d turn around, and say…
It’s too late to apologize, it’s too late.”

I’m sure there’s someone in your life who has done something that you find unforgivable, and in that case One Republic sums it up perfectly. It’s too late to apologize.

9. A Little Too Much by Shawn Mendes

“Sometimes it all gets a little too much,
But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up,
And you don’t have to be afraid, because we’re all the same,
And we know that sometimes it all gets a little too much.”

Shawn says it himself, at times life can be a little overwhelming for all of us.

10. Brave by Sara Bareilles

“But I wonder what would happen if you
Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave.”

We all want to say what we really feel, but we all aren’t as brave as Sara Bareilles.

11. Stay by Rihanna

“Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay.”

There has definitely been a time when you haven’t been able to describe your feelings, but you know you don’t want that person to leave…you want them to stay. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
