“Someone You Loved” IS Lewis Capaldi’s hit (and heartbreaking in every possible way) alternative pop song that talks about losing love forever in the hand of death. The mourning husband talks about losing his wife forever and how empty, heartbroken, and empty it makes him feel. I know it’s kinda hard to lose a song like this multiple times especially if it’s someone who might relate to this song. But this song is actually great for learning the use of past tense in English which is challenging for any beginner.

This song comes with a wide range of new words that are more than worth adding to your vocabulary.

“New Rules” by Dua Lipa is arguably the biggest hit of 2017 that established her as a break-out artist. This is a song that tells the story of a girl coming out of a toxic relationship where she is only being used and reused over and over again.
