The best thing about music is that there are songs for every type of relationship, so you always have something to relate to.
However, while songs about crushes play on the radio regularly and tons of playlists exist for songs about unrequited love, it’s not always easy to find songs about twin flames.
A twin flame relationship is unparalleled in its intensity, a yin and yang connection that may not necessarily be romantic but that forces you to take a deeper look at yourself.
Twin flame connections are incredibly unique and navigating them isn’t always easy, but these twin flame songs will help you feel heard and understood.

5. “I Will Always Love You” by Dolly Parton

6. “Follow You” by Bring Me the Horizon
Twin flame relationships are called “flame” for a reason. They’re often so tumultuous that it feels like everything is burning down around you, yet you just can’t seem to break the connection. As Oli Sykes of Bring Me the Horizon says, “So you can drag me through hell / If it meant I could hold your hand.”
7. “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri
Twin flame relationships extend across time and through reincarnations, so you really could be waiting a thousand years before meeting yours in a different lifetime.
