Lonely Song

We’ve all been there.

Every single one of us have felt feelings of loneliness at some point in our lives.

We’ve compiled a playlist of 50+ lonely songs that put into words what it feels like to feel alone.  Each of these songs lets us know that loneliness is a common human experience.

Feeling lonely doesn’t always mean that you are physically alone or feeling socially isolated. It may be that you’re feeling mentally or emotionally lonely  like no one truly understands what you’re going through.

We may also experience feelings of loneliness when we’re missing someone who once played a significant role in our lives but who is no longer here anymore.

No matter where feelings of loneliness stem from, many musicians have turned to their art to express what it means to feel lonely.

So put your headphones in or turn your volume up on this moving lonely songs playlist…
