20 Best Songs About Trust

By Brian

Trust is a tricky thing. It doesn’t seem like it should be, but trust can make or break someone’s life. Whether it is with friends, family, lovers… Trust holds the key to such a strong relationship or a horrible torture of betrayal and pain . In this article, we will be showing you some of the best songs written about trust.


Fix You – Coldplay

Coldplay - Fix You (Official Video)

This song is about a person who has hurt someone they love and instead of going back and fixing that mistake, they blame the other person for not understanding. This is definitely a bad way to handle a situation but I think we can all relate to this song on some level.

Love Don’t Die – The Fray

The Fray - Love Don't Die

This song is about someone who has done something stupid to lose the trust of their significant other. Now that they have lost the trust, there is little chance for them to win it back. This isn’t always the case but it can be if you don’t put in enough effort to try and regain trust.

With You – Chris Brown

Chris Brown - With You (Official Video)

This song is about finding trust after it has been broken. After someone betrayed you or cheated on you, it can be hard to open yourself up to that kind of relationship again. This song is about making the choice to try and love again and hope for the best.

Unwell – Matchbox 20

Matchbox Twenty - Unwell (Official Video)

This song is about someone having doubts in their relationship. They are feeling insecure and start to question why they are in the relationship or if they should really be there. This can be a very unnerving feeling but sometimes it’s better to get these feelings out than to keep them inside where they will eat away at you.

Don’t Trust Me – 3OH!3

3OH!3 - DON'T TRUST ME [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]

This song is about how sometimes, people can seem like everything is great with them but really it is not. They might be acting nice to gain something or for some other selfish reason. This way of making people trust you is simply not trustworthy and this song warns others about it.

1,2,3,4 – Plain White Ts

Plain White T's - 1, 2, 3, 4

This song is about how someone can be in a relationship with someone who doesn’t trust them or they don’t trust the other person. They end up trying to keep an eye on their partner and limit what they do with their life simply because they don’t trust them.

All I Ask of You – Barbra Streisand

Barbra Streisand All I Ask Of You

This song is about how someone has spent their whole life trying to get over someone else’s betrayal. Unfortunately, they can never seem to get past that person and move on. They keep repeating the same mistake over and over again waiting for something none of us know if it’s going to come.

I Don’t Trust Myself (With Loving You) – John Mayer

I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You)

This song is about how someone feels like they can never trust themselves in a relationship. It could be because they cheated before or maybe someone else hurt them and their trust in that person. Whatever the reason, it just seems to be engrained into their head now and now they can’t trust themselves.

Dear Mr. President – Pink

P!nk - Dear Mr. President (Live From Wembley Arena, London, England)

This song is about how someone says that they can no longer trust the government and those in power. This could be because of war or something else political but it definitely makes sense why people don’t like to trust politicians. After all, we always seem to think the worst of them and this song really taps into that.

Fields of Gold – Sting

Sting - Fields Of Gold (Official Music Video)

This song is about past experiences with someone else’s betrayal. They trusted the other party and they let them down so badly that it changed how this person trusted other people. Now, they can’t really be around anyone without being suspicious of their motives. If only we could all trust as easily as we could hate because maybe this song wouldn’t exist.

Heart of Glass – Blondie

Blondie - Heart Of Glass

This song is about cheating in a relationship. Someone has been betrayed before by their partner and this time they are not going to let that happen again. This person doesn’t care if it means losing everything, so long as they never get cheated on again. There’s nothing wrong with being paranoid but when it goes too far, that’s when it becomes a problem.

Before He Cheats – Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood - Before He Cheats (Official Video)

This song is about someone who has been cheated on before. Now, this person is so traumatized by it that they are taking drastic measures. They are going to do something so cruel and horrible to the other person’s car in order to get revenge for what they did. It might seem a little inappropriate but if the shoe was on the other foot, we can’t help but wonder if they would have done the same thing.

The Only Exception – Paramore

Paramore: The Only Exception [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

This song is about being so hurt by someone before that you don’t ever want to trust them again. It doesn’t matter if they are sorry or not because it’s too late for this person who sees hope as nothing more than an illusion now. This song might be a little sad but

Blind – Lifehouse

This song is about how someone has been betrayed before by a lover and this time it’s going to be different. They are going to find a way to do everything by themselves so that no one gets hurt this time. Maybe they are trying to protect themselves but it’s obvious that this person is afraid of ever trusting anyone again.

How To Save A Life – The Fray

The Fray - How to Save a Life (Official Video)

This song is about finding out that someone you love has gone through some terrible trauma before. If this was what caused them to become the way they are now, you might wonder if there is anything that can be done to save them. If only we could forget the past and just live in the present but it’s impossible for this person who wonders if they will ever see their loved one again.

Photograph – Nickelback

Nickelback - Photograph [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

This song is about the betrayal of a lover and it has gone on for so long that this person can’t seem to get away. It’s like we are trapped in the past and we can never figure out how to let go and move forward with our lives. Maybe someone will come along someday who can help this person and maybe they can finally let go and move on.

Mean – Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift - Mean

This song is about so many different types of betrayal that it’s hard to pinpoint just one thing. Whatever the reason, this person has been hurt by the other before and it feels as if they never want to trust anyone ever again. It might be a little dramatic but who knows if the other person will betray them again.

Torn – Natalie Imbruglia

Natalie Imbruglia - Torn (Official Video) [HD Remastered]

This song is about having a crush on someone and thinking that maybe they could feel the same way even though you don’t know for sure. This person has been betrayed before by love at least one time but they are too scared to fully put their heart out there again because of what happened in the past. This song just really shows how scary love can be when you don’t know what is going to happen next.

Time after Time – Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper - Time After Time (Official HD Video)

This song is about not being able to be with someone you love anymore. It doesn’t matter what they did in the past because it’s all irrelevant now. The only thing that matters for this person is that they can still think about their lover after everything that’s happened between them. There might come a day where one of them finds their one true love again and you hope that it’s not too long from now.

Someone Like You – Adele

Adele - Someone Like You (Official Music Video)

This song is about not being able to get over someone who has left you. Maybe they were the love of your life or maybe it was just a fling but either way, all you can do now is think about them every single day. It’s sad but this person still hopes that they can get a second chance with their ex someday.
