Love is a powerful accident in that it shift your life in unprecedented ways, you can be soaring and luxuriating or come crashing down. Superlatives and hyperboles are a must when we speak about love and if we somehow caught a glimpse of its consequences, well, we'd be living a far less dangerous world.

Falling in love with the wrong person can be worse than falling into a black hole, and yes, melodramatic as it may seem, we mean it.

Being afraid of falling in love can be as overwhelming as fearing death, an accident, or a dangerous animal. Sometimes, it even hurts more than any of these.

Songs You Wont Dedicate bridge-w636-h600

Death doesn't leave scars; it takes us from this place, and our stories are over. Instead, an unrequited love leaves scars in the soul that are hard to heal.

A bad love is the most dangerous one: it attacks, bites, makes you bleed, poisons you, and leaves marks as deep as a shark's bite. The soul dissolves and you lose track of who you once were before you got swept away.

Analyze this playlist that no one dares to dedicate because they're afraid of being hurt in this love game.

"Can't Take My Eyes Off You"
Frankie Valli

“Oh pretty baby, don't bring me down I pray
Oh pretty baby, now that I've found you stay
And let me love you, baby, let me love you.”

This classic song expresses the feeling when we're falling for someone but are still afraid of being rejected. It's an example of how we can't stop thinking, seeing, and talking about that person.

"Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop"
Landon Pigg

“I think that possibly, maybe I’m falling for you
Yes there’s a chance that I’ve fallen quite hard over you
I’ve seen the paths that your eyes wander down
I want to come too”.

The moment you fall in love you know the path you've taken will be irrevocably changed. Just as eyes wander constantly, so too do paths and desires shift and change. 

"Let Me Kiss You"

“Close your eyes, and think of someone, you physically admire and let me kiss you, let me kiss you”.

When all you can think about is kissing them then you know you're in the deep end of love. 

"Wicked Game"

“What a wicked game to play
to make me feel this way
what a wicked thing to do
to let me dream of you
what a wicked thing to say
you never felt this way
what a wicked thing to do”.

Love is wicked. What more can be said on the matter?

The XX

“My name on your lips
Your air in my lungs
Drowned in oxygen
Now you’ve set the scene
High on intimacy
Drawing me above”.

All those wants and desires are like a prayer that is never uttered and never leaves your thoughts. 

"Shut Up Kiss Me"
Angel Olsen

“Stop pretending I’m not there
When it’s clear I’m not going anywhere
If I’m out of sight then take another look around
I’m still out there hoping to be found”.

What is holding you back? It's simple: the fear of being rejected and hurt again. 

"Taking a Chance on Love"
Ella Fitzgerald

"On the ball again
I'm riding for a fall again/
I'm gonna give my all again
Taking a chance on love"

It is so easy to say "take a chance on love" but we all know how our breath hitches and our palms sweat the moment you have to jump and you don't know where you'll fall.

"If I Fell"
The Beatles

“If I give my heart to you
I must be sure
From the very start
That you would love me more than her”.

Fears are the main obstacle in achieving things. The same happens with love, if you're unsure of taking the next step then you'll feel as if you've been left behind. Don't hesitate, tomorrow might be too late.

"She Is Beautiful"
Andre W.K.

“And though I never know you
I look at your face
To tell you that I love you
Don’t know what to say
You’re everything I got, you beautiful girl
The only thing I live for in the whole wide world”.

Tranquility gets smashed when the most beautiful face appears in front of you. Will he dare approach her and tell her what he feels? In many cases, this doesn't happen. Insecurities paralyze even the bravest person, making them stay in a corner with a beer in their hand and admiring from the distance that perfect person.


“There’s something about the look in your eyes
Something I noticed when the light was just right
It reminded me twice that I was alive
And it reminded me that you’re so worth the fight”.

There are people who settle with the idea of keeping a love in secret. They are fine with just looking at the other person and enjoying the safety of distance. Love is made both from brave and silent people, and it's fine; we all have the right to experience love as we so desire.

Love's ghost surrounds us at all times, at the most unexpected places, and in the least foreseeable circumstances. What type of music do you listen to when you feel your heart is trapped by love? Pay attention to the 10 Songs That Will Make You Cry And Free You From Pain.
