Sad Breakup Songs?!?

Songs like:

Say something- A Great Big World

Breakup in the end- Cole Swindell

What if I never get over you- Lady A

It’s getting better all the time- Brooks & Dunn

Someday when I stop loving you- Carrie Underwood

Silhouette- Owl City

Vanilla Twilight- Owl City

I wish you’d stay- Brad Paisley

Holdin’ on to you- Brad Paisley

Be alright- Dean Lewis

Living for the night- George Strait

Let’s her go- Passenger

You get the picture...

Please make sure the songs are in English as that’s unfortunately the only language I understand fluently.  

Any genre is fine as long as it meets the criteria of a sad breakup song.


Thank you all for the awesome answers!  I know I’ve asked this question before a few times.  Always looking for new ones though.  I will listen to them all and then pick my favorite answer!  Thanks again!
