Cape Town – No matter how cliché it sounds, we have all been through those break-ups, where we just wanna roll-up into a ball and drown our sorrows in buckets of ice cream and chocolates...

But what you really need is a break-up playlist or anthem that perfectly sums up how you're feeling at every stage of your horrifying break-up.

Songs that will comfort and empower you in the effort to keep the pain out.

Here are the best break-up songs that could ease your transition from the "I can’t believe this is happening" to the "I want to die" stage.

The denial stage:

"I remember the day you told me you were leaving, I remember the make-up running down your face."

The angry stage:

"Since you've been gone, I can breathe for the first time, I'm so moving on, thanks to you, now I get what I want."

The revenge stage:

"Oh my god, who is she? I get drunk on jealousy, but you'll come back each time you leave, cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream."

The accepting stage:

"Cause honestly you turned out to be the (best thing I never had), you turned out to be the (best thing I never had), and I'm gonna' always be the (best thing you never had), I bet it sucks to be you right now."

And lastly...

The I want you back stage...

"Oh, won't you stay with me, Cause you're all I need, this ain't love, it's clear to see, but darling, stay with me."
