I’ll Never Love Again by Lady Gaga

Everybody Hurts by R.E.M.
This song teaches us that everyone is sometimes hurt and everyone cries. Everything is not always perfect for anyone, and it is perfectly okay to shut yourself in and cry out your soul. If you feel that way, do it and it will be easier for you.
Whatever happens in your life, everything will be fine. And when you break into a thousand pieces, don’t worry, gather strength, pick up the pieces, and put together a new self – an even better version. And wherever you are, always remember that after the rain comes the sun!
