4) "Halo" by Beyonce
It's like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin'
It's the risk that I'm taking
I ain't never gonna shut you out!...

As the song suggests, you are reminded of the one who comes along and breaks down the carefully guarded walls you've constructed. You've been hurt, but alas, so has he. You realize this and recognize that part of embracing love and life is embracing the fear that drives you.
5) "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry
You think I'm pretty
Without any makeup on
You think I'm funny
When I tell the punchline wrong
I know you get me
So I let my walls come down, down...
The subtle seductive lyrics reminds us that we need a lover with whom we can be ourselves; one who will appreciate every side of us. From silly to sensual, we should want a partner who can make us feel desired even when we aren't dolled up, or when we veer outside the norm society dictates for us.

6) "For The First Time" by The Script
Trying to make it work but man these times are hard
But we're gonna start by
Drinking our cheap bottles of wine,
Sit talking up all night,
Saying things we haven't for a while
A while, yeah
We're smiling but we're close to tears,
Even after all these years,
We just now got the feeling that we're meeting for the first time...
It's easy to get caught up in the day to day grind we call life. But how many of us make time for our friends, our lovers? Over time, we become too familiar with one another. There seems to be nothing new or exciting to share, so we don't. We forget to ask questions, to talk to one another, to connect and to truly share our lives with our partners. This song is a testament to staying committed to your partner in their time of need. It reminds us not to abandon one another when the shit hits the fan. It's at the worst possible times that we must be vulnerable with our partners. We must share our fears, our triumphs...in hopes of moving forward. How Amy Winehouse Healed My Broken Heart
7) "How To Save A Life" by The Fray
Let him know that you know best
Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you've told him all along
And pray to God, he hears you
And pray to God, he hears you
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Too many times we get caught up in who is right or wrong in the relationship. This song forces us to re-examine what works and what doesn't work in the relationship. If it's not right, if it can't be fixed, move on. If the relationship can be salvaged, then forget who is right. Move past the indifference you've taken on to shield yourself from the heartache and move forward together. The Top 10 Anti-Romance Songs
