Friday Playlist: Someday We’ll Be Together

Songs for breakups, makeups, and the hopeless/hopeful period in between.

It could be due to distance, bad timing, or trying to find your own path before hopping back on the same one together; whatever the reason, you’re apart. But there’s a bright, burning hope that it’s only temporary, that someday you’ll be reunited. In the meantime, here are a few songs to comfort you when the one you love just can’t be there to do it.

    aww, I’ve missed a good bit of Amy Winehouse in my life, I’m gonna have to go back to listening to Frank and Back to Black now :)

    This makes me feel a little better after being dumped a week ago by a guy who made me believe everything was amazing.
    I hope he comes back.. but if he doesn’t, these songs have taught me it’s ok anyways if he doesn’t.. I deserve better.

    This playlist has arrived with perfect timing. During these last few weeks, I minimised contact with my boyfriend and started taking up new hobbies and met up with my friends more. I did all this with the hope that we would get back together after our break up. Slowly, he started initiating our conversations. Today he asked if we’re still together, we met up in the park and told each other how much we missed and loved each other. Thank you Rookie for making a playlist so relevant to my life <3
