It’s been estimated that there are more than 97 million songs in the world. Even more songs are being created as we speak. However, in the midst of this humongous collection of musical choices only a few pass our personal taste and even fewer manage to talk to us in a profound level. I do not know who you are, or what you have been through in life, but I believe this list 12 meaningful quotes from love songs will find a way to talk to your soul. Why? Because music is a universal language. Play each of these songs in the background as I interpret what I feel is it’s meaning.

Sometimes you want to just ignore everything, lie on your back and look up at the stars and pretend everything is going to be okay. Many of us are forced to face a harsh world. We often times feel like many of our dreams and hopes are sacrificed in order to deal with reality. This song relates to that small sparkle of hope in our hearts. Like closing your eyes, imagining that time of your life when the world is simpler and full of wonder. Like shooting a shooting star, we all look for that one thing to keep us going. Something that would keep us up when we can barely stand on our own.
2. ANNIE’S SONG
by John Denver | play song |
When you love someone their very scent and very presence rhapsodizes your soul. It’s like waking up in the morning and smelling the fresh misty air. You feel like you could spread your arms as wide as you can, as the warmth of the sun kisses your skin. You take a deep breathe and you feel all of the worries of your life melt away. This song is the musical reminiscence of that irreplaceable feeling. If you have someone who makes you experience this, you are very lucky.
3. JUST THE WAY YOU ARE
by Bruno Mars | play song |
When a guy is in love he sees you the way he wants to see you. Beauty, as the popular saying states, is in the eye of the beholder. Being a guy I know for myself that attractiveness is not all about how someone looks on the outside, a huge part of it is influenced by her presence. It is about how she moves, how she opens her lips, how she reacts to things, how she gets angry, how she pouts. And for many guys sometimes they just meet that one perfect girl that simply does everything perfectly. That is why when that special guy sees your face, he wouldn’t want to change anything because every crease, every mole, every hair or even every wrinkle on your face is just one of the many unique brushstrokes to complete the masterpiece that is you.
4. JAR OF HEARTS
by Christina Perri | play song |
This song quote portrays the remnants of abusive love. Sometimes people overlook the feelings associated with love. Without warning love just disappears, and there is nothing we could do about it. That does not mean we should act recklessly and put insult to injury. Some people lose their love for someone but continue to use them so they could escape the pain of being alone. And when they find someone else, they drop the person, who have sacrificed their life and their emotions for them, like nothing. Sometimes these injured people are so helplessly in love they allow themselves to get used. This song teaches you to stand up for yourself and say no to these heartless individuals.

Life is too short to live behind masks. These masks keep you from experiencing life in all its glory. The music communicates how there is elegance in vulnerability. It’s like exposing your heart to the tip of a spear. The most vulnerable way to expose yourself is telling all of your secrets. It lets people know all your weaknesses, all your fears, all of your faults and all of your flaws. When you find someone you can share your deepest darkest and most vulnerable secrets to, you have found something so rare – many people live their entire lives sleeping beside a stranger and not knowing it. There is something so liberating about opening your heart, taking a leap of faith. It seems like an overly romanticized idea, but when it works out, it feels like destiny.
6. CON TE PARTIRO
by Andrea Bocelli | play song |
Andrea Bocelli is a blind singer. Born with poor eyesight he lost his vision at age 12 during a football accident. It is tragic experience and with that he seems to project the feeling of loneliness with such clarity you can relate to his suffering – being among so many people yet feeling all alone. Sometimes this loneliness makes us so desperate for love that when we find it, we don’t want to separate from it. What’s even more amazing and a quite comforting thought is that when two very lonely people meet, it gives birth to a truly amazing and passionate relationship that can outlast the greatest tests of life.
7. CHASING CARS
by Snow Patrol | play song |
Reality is governed by the laws responsible for our very existence. As a result, we see our hopes and our dreams slowly crumble away whenever reality clips our wings and pummels us back down to earth. Faced with such bleakness, there are times we want to lie beside that person we love and pretend everything is as simple as our young minds used to perceive. We want to pretend everything is simple and that things will always turn out for the best. It’s like nirvana trapped within our own small world. Only when we grow up do we realize the amazing feeling of being able to waste time doing something as pointless as chasing cars. This song reminisces back to this time of simplicity and seemingly effortless true happiness. This teaches us that our good memories define us. It’s what comforts us during warm cold nights. Such an indescribably unique experience can only be captured by our memories imprinted in our very existence, so that one day we can look back smile and tell ourselves we have lived life. A good life. A happy life. A complete life.

Having experienced the most amazing and terrible things in life, this song speaks to me in a profound level. I have a fire within me I need to let rage. It’s like the need to find your true self. The need to reach your full realization. It makes you go through paths many people would be afraid to thread. However, it changes you, and it changes how you see the world – it forms your own demons. But then somewhere along the way, you meet a very special person. They represent to you all the pure things in this world. Sometimes you meet one of these exceptional individuals who see their dreams burn before their eyes, experience extraordinary pain so painful it has destroyed so many yet they still smile at life with all their heart, untainted. You want to protect that person from everything you have experienced and from your own fate. You want to keep that genuine sparkle in their eye and you often times protect their innocence by sacrificing your own. And when you meet someone this special, you are afraid to show them all of you because you are afraid your own demons will hurt them as much as it has tortured you.
9. SOMETHING TO REMIND YOU
by Aaron Lewis of Staind | play song |
Perpetually injured beings walking the earth experience seemingly unending series of painful events. Many think such individuals have been blessed with unmatched will and strength. Little do they know it is because these people had no choice but to be strong. Because in reality, they have been cursed with incurable wounds. Wounds they could not erase, they could not hide. These wounds change them and cause them to react in ways that sometimes hurt the people they love. A life tormented by disappointments after disappointments dims the hopes inside of them and soon the cold sets in. Only they could warm their own for there is no one to embrace them. They desperately try to reach out for help like frigid hands using it’s last ounce of strength to touch that one ray of sunlight.
10. BECAUSE OF YOU
by Ne-Yo | play song |
When you are infatuated with someone, you start craving for them – like a drug. You adore everything about them. You desire all of them, you don’t want to leave an inch untouched. Your breathe so you could see them again – your heart beats for them. Your entire body, your soul, all of you aches to be so close to them that making love feels like it’s still not close enough. You do things you normally wouldn’t do, you abandon things never in a millions years you thought would abandon and sacrifice things you didn’t think you would ever sacrifice all because of them.

When you experience something so amazing you realize how time is simply an illusion because you are forever connected to someone. The two of you have something impossible to replicate, a connection that cannot be undone – your souls are intertwined.

Enjoy your life, be the best that you can be and don’t let small mundane things stop you from your beautiful destiny – never give up. Because when you meet that fateful soul meant for you, you become complete.
