Relatable Boy Songs

Fact about me: one of my absolute favorite things to do is drive around and blast music. It’s been an obsession of mine since I got my driver's license back in 2014. Nothing can compare to driving 80 mph on the 2 or the 210 or the 101 or the 1 or the 134 or the 10 or the 110 or the 105 or the 405 or the 118 or any residential area (can you tell I’m from Los Angeles?) while blasting my favorite songs. Nothing! Can! Compare!

This summer I started a new playlist called “relatable boy songs” (because this summer has been interesting) and while I was driving back to La Cañada from Westchester tonight, I figured that I could write a post similar to my “Welcome to Your Twenties” post about some of the songs. So, here are 30 songs and a lyric from each that remind me about a boy that is either in my life currently or used to be. Enjoy! Feel free to try to figure out who they remind me of...

1. A Part of Me - Neck Deep

“And if only I could find the words / Or muster up the nerve to tell her / I’ll never forget her and she’ll always have a part of me.”

2. Talk in Your Sleep - Moose Blood

“I don't need reminding of something I can't forget / No one ever took my eyes off you girl / And I wish that you could stay / I guess I'm always waiting for you to come back and call my name / Like we both still felt the same / I'm miserable and I don't want you to know.”

3. Drown - Front Porch Step

“And don't you dare say you ever loved me or even tell me that you cared / Because you knew what you were doing and you know just what you've done.”

4. That’s 21 - Kyle Reynolds

“And every girl I see just isn't you / I wonder will that change.”

“When you're alone, do you think of me?”

“You are the best side of me and just for when we're apart / I've got a piece of your heart / But I want the whole damn thing.”

“I don't wanna think about a moment with you, I'm kinda hoping for forever / Talk fast romance, it won't last, I'm okay with that / I'll take what I can get from you.”

22. In Bloom - Neck Deep

“And stop calling me out / We're never going to put the pieces back together if you won't let me get better / And stop digging it up or we're never gonna see it all in bloom.”

23. Lie To Me - 5 Seconds of Summer

“Now I wish we never met because you're too hard to forget / And I know that you don't, but if I ask you if you love me I hope you lie to me.”

24. New Light - John Mayer
