I've been pondering this subject a lot lately. What musical theater songs of this emotion do we have, besides Passion of course, either male or female. Essentially, how to get thorough a nasty breakup.

"Glad to Be Unhappy" by Rodgers and Hart
A lighter look at the situation.

"I Loved Him" by Cole Porter
another lighter take

Find the lyrics and you'll see what I mean.
"If my life weren't funny, it would just be true. And that would be unacceptable." --Carrie Fisher

I immediately thought of "On My Own," which someone mentioned, and "On the Street where you Live," although Freddy Eynsford-Hill may be too goofy to realize his love for Eliza Doolittle is unrequited.

The Glenbuck Laird posted "You'll Never Walk Alone." I don't get that one. Could you elaborate?
You alone can make my song take flight.
