10 Soulful LDR Songs About Love And Longing

Angeles Salazar Fun stuff 5 Comments

Anyone in a long distance relationship can tell you that being far away from the person you love means experiencing more extreme emotions. We’ve all tasted the solitary bitterness of intense loneliness and the ache of unmet longings. We’ve also all tasted the giddy super-charged excitement of reunions and the clarity of contentment that comes from simply being close to that special someone.

What helps during the tough moments? One thing that has always helped me is music. It has always been like therapy for me.  These 10 LDR songs are perfect for couples in long distance relationships. They have helped me get some of the hard emotions off my chest and reminded me that I’m not alone. I hope you find the same solace and encouragement in them.

When You’re Gone, by Avril Lavigne

This song is a raw tribute to the pain of being in a LDR, but if you listen to it repeatedly it’s one of those LDR songs you end up loving. Beautiful lyrics and melody.

When you’re gone
The pieces of my heart are missin’ you
When you’re gone
The face I came to know is missin’, too
When you’re gone
The words I need to hear
To always get me through the day
And make it okay
I miss you

Jet Lag, by Simple Plan

This song is for those who are feeling like going crazy because  of the different time zones! I don’t love the lyrics, but they definitely tell an LDR like it is.

You say good morning
When it’s midnight
Going out of my head
Alone in this bed
I wake up to your sunset
And it’s driving me mad
I miss you so bad
And my heart, heart, heart is so jet-lagged
Heart, heart, heart is so jet-lagged
Heart, heart, heart is so jet-lagged, is so jet-lagged

Aeroplanes, by Futures

If you want to listen to  something more cheerful  and romantic, this is the LDR song for you.

And I’m gonna build you the house on the water
But first I will build the bridge across
But someone once told me that love never mattered
So I sing, oh
I know that I can and you can breathe underwater
I know that I can and you can breathe underwater

3000, by The Icarus Account

If you’re so in love that can’t bear it, and you wonder what the future holds.

Cause you’re worth waking up for
Worth packing up for
Worth being late for
Worth staying faithful
Worth being alone for
Worth acting dumb for
And worth coming home for
And I can’t wait to see you again
I can’t wait to see you again

200,000, by The Rocket Summer

One of those catchy LDR songs that almost helps you feel like those miles between you are shrinking. Ideal for a road trip.

There are not one but two hundred thousand miles on my car.
To be with you I’ve driven far, but I loved you that much.
Yes I made those morning coffee drinks at four AM for a ring, but I loved you that much.
I stood up to that gang by myself. When they messed with you, I had no help, but I loved you that much.
And remember the time I wrote that song and many folks sang along? Yeah I loved you that much.

I Can Wait Forever, by Simple Plan

OK, this one is a bit corny, I admit. But it’s perfect for when you’re really missing the one you love.

Another day without you with me
Is like a blade that cuts right through me
But I can wait
I can wait forever
When you call my heart stops beating
When you’re gone it won’t stop bleeding
But I can wait
I can wait foreve

Hours, by Warren Barfield

If you feel he or she is your soulmate  and you’re not afraid to say it, this song is perfect.

And love you
Just love you
It’s all I wanna do
‘Cause I know you’re the one
That I’ve been praying for
And I could love you for a thousand years
And wish for a thousand more

Far Away, by Nickelback

A good LDR song for those who won’t give up. Listen to this when you feel like no matter what, you’ll keep on loving on.

I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you’ll be with me and you’ll never go
Stop breathing if I don’t see you anymore

From Where You Are, by Lifehouse

When you miss the things you took for granted.

I miss the years that were erased
I miss the way the sunshine would light up your face
I miss all the little things
I never thought that they’d mean everything to me
Yeah, I miss you and I wish you were here

A thousand miles, by Vanessa Carlton

An elegant classic to listen to when you feel so far away and want some balm for your pain.

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder….
If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
‘Cause you know I’d walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
