The aggressive anger under the surface works for me:



Oh! Darling, please believe me
I'll never do you no harm
Believe me when I tell you
I'll never do you no harm

Oh! Darling, if you leave me
I'll never make it alone
Believe me when I beg you
Don't ever leave me alone

When you told me you didn't need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and cried
When you told me you didn't need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and died

Oh! Darling, if you leave me
I'll never make it alone
Believe me when I tell you
I'll never do you no harm, believe me darlin'

When you told me you didn't need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and cried
When you told me you didn't need me anymore
Well you know I nearly fell down and died

Oh! Darling, please believe me
I'll never let you down (Oh believe me darlin')
Believe me when I tell you
I'll never do you no harm

There's a really good version of this song from the movie Across The Universe:



Dana Fush and Martin McCoy smash this song. The energy and anger is just breathtaking.

How about wallowing in it , this was my self torturing song in the depths of break up.

Different era, different country, but classic Aussie Billy Fields

This song wasn't about a break-up as such, but the lyrics fit perfectly.

My ex and I used to sing this to each other when we were pissing each other off,
listen to this a couple of times, go rub one out and move on.



or you can listen to Roy for 8 weeks straight...

Break up song Saturday mornings, nice. I played this diddy a few thousand times when I was going through divorce. God it’s depressing. Side note- I’m in such a better place now, mentally, geographically and financially. Good bye old life, you sucker!




I believe in desperate acts, the kind that make me look stupid
Look like a fool
Just keep reinventing myself, it's move or die
I change my form
These days the people I love are spread so far apart
All out of reach
It's a thin sheet across the face
Cover me now
That's pretty old
That's pretty old
I never felt like this before, I say that every hour
I never felt like this before, I say that every hour
It's never going to be like it could have been, now it's just this room
Window looks back
You're a big part of it but I don't care
You take the load
And can you really see me now like I made me?
Made me anew
Just like anyone at all
Safer alone
That's pretty old
That's pretty old
I never felt like this before, I say that every hour
I never felt like this before, I say that every hour
So right, so wrong, another winter's coming on
You win, you lose, it's the same old news
These things go wrong so often
Pick up the phone and punch your code
Somewhere, sometime, let me make you mine
Lean your head on mine like you used to
Used to your lean
I don't mind if you're faking it
Make it seem real
I'm not asking the questions, I'm not demanding the answers now
Take what you give
Right or wrong, just take me, lead me on
I'm going, I'm going
So right, so wrong, another winter's coming on
You win, you lose, it's the same old news
These things go wrong so often
Pick up the phone and punch your code
Somewhere, sometime, let me make you mine

I love the Black Sabbath Og changes but I also love the punch and emotion of Charles Bradley’s cover. Great great song either way 👍👍👍

We had broken up for good just an hour before
And now I'm staring at the bodies as they're dancing 'cross the floor
And then the band slowed the tempo and the music gets you down
It was the same old song, with a melancholy sound

They don't write 'em like that anymore
They just don't write 'em like that anymore

We'd been living together for a million years
But now it feels so strange out in the atmospheres
And then the jukebox plays a song I used to know
And now I'm staring at the bodies as they're dancing so slow

They don't write 'em like that anymore
They don't write 'em like that anymore

Now I wind up staring at an empty glass
'Cause it's so easy to say that you'll forget your past

They don't write 'em like that anymore, no
They just don't write 'em like that anymore
They don't write 'em like that anymore
They just don't write 'em like that anymore
They just don't, no they don't, no no, uh-uh
They just don't write 'em like that anymore
They just don't, no they don't

This one really hits home for me.

My dinner's on fire while she watches TV
And if you've ever wondered what it's like to be me
She takes all my money and leaves me no smokes
Yells at my buddies and insults my folks
I'm breakin' my back doin' the best that I can
She's got time for the dog and none for her man
And I'm no dope, but I can't cope
So hit the #in' road and piss up a rope
You can piss up a rope
And you can put on your shoes, hit the road get truckin'
Pack your bag, I don't need the ag
On your knees you big, booty bitch start suckin'
You ride my ass like a horse in a saddle
Now you're up #s creek with a turd for a paddle
And I can't cope piss up a rope
Uh, you can piss up a rope and feel the pissy dribble
You can piss up a rope and watch me giggle
For the last 6 months I been packin' your bag
You can wash my balls with a warm, wet rag
Till my balls feel smooth and soft like silk
I'm sick of your mouth and your 2 percent milk
And I'm no dope, but I've lost all hope
So hit the #in' road and piss up a rope
You can piss up a rope
And you can put on your shoes, hit the road get truckin'
Pack your bag, I don't need the age
On your knees you big, booty bitch start suckin'
You ride my ass like a horse in a saddle
Now you're up #s creek with a turd for a paddle
And I can't cope piss up a rope

I have always found this to be a brutal song for many reasons. Not my normal style but doesnt mean it doesnt work.

Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy

Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images

You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick

Well, I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images

And when you left, you kissed my lips
You told me you would never, never forget
These images

Well, I'd never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So you're gone and I'm haunted
And I bet you are just fine
Did I make it that easy to walk right in and out
Of my life?

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

Soon

Ooh, it's said and done, ooh, I'm not the only one
How was I to know? No one told me so
I just landed here and struggled to get by
Nothing much to see, oh, so naive
And then it hit me like it has 1,000 times

Then one day soon, it's gonna happen to you
And when it does, it won't be pretty
Then one day soon, it's gonna happen to you
And when it does

Ooh, it's said and done, ooh, I'm not the only one
How was I to see, the only difference is me?
To think that holding steady hands would do just fine
One day you'll agree that you are truer to yourself
Than anyone of us will ever be

Then one day soon, it just might happen to you
And when it does, it won't be pretty
Then one day soon, it's gonna happen to you
And when it does, it won't be pretty

Then one day soon, it's gonna happen to you
And when it does, oh no, it won't be pretty
And then one day soon, it's gonna happen to you
And when it does, I won't be there
And I won't be anywhere 'cause

Then one day soon, it's gonna happen to you
And when it does, it won't be pretty
And then one day soon, it's gonna happen to you
And when it does, I know it won't be pretty

And then one day soon, it's gonna happen to you
And when it does, when it does, when it does
And when it does, when it does, when it does
Then one day soon, it's gonna happen to you
And when it does, I won't be there

There's the breakup and then there's the movin' on - lesson learned



Writing in the book of life, a chapter of insanity
And I keep runnin' away from yesterday
And with a hold of my heart, I recharge my mind
And see what I can find
What lies behind the sky
And if there is not only emptiness and pain
A future lies out there
I'm gonna grab it here, even
Sometimes the truth (sometimes the truth)
Cuts like a knife, but I've got 9 lives

Like a ship on the stormy sea, I've been drifting all the way from me
From my own fears and from serenity
I pack my bags and go
Away
From you
And burn those memories!
That f#cked with my brain
And kept me down the drain
And kill the pain, get me safe and sane
The future lies out there
I'm gonna grab it here, even
Sometimes the truth (sometimes the truth)
Cuts like a knife, but I've got 9 lives

Chasin' clouds in the sky
The sky's been black, the sky's been white
My life's a thunderstorm, I pushed the pad in front of her to the ground
Down South bound

See what I can find
What lies behind the sky
There's no more pain
I'll be safe and sane
The future lies out there
I'm gonna grab it now, even
Sometimes the truth (sometimes the truth) cuts like a knife
Your dirty truth (your dirty truth) cuts like a knife
And all your dirty lies, stuck me like a knife
But I've got 9 lives
