Songs about letting go of unrequited love?

I'm trying to make a playlist to help me get past an unrequited-love situation. I'm looking for songs where the people actually know each other, not ones where they're in love with a stranger.

I've been in love with one of my friends for quite some time now; they don't feel the same way and I'm looking for music to help me move on. They also did quite a lot of back-and-forth with things so songs like that are helpful too. I'm not looking for songs where it was clear they had a relationship/the person reciprocated at some point.
An example of songs I'm talking about:
Brandy's "Have You Ever"
George Michael's "One More Try"
Taylor Swift's "Red," although that doesn't fit into the category at all, has really been helping.
Tori Amos' "A Sorta Fairytale"
