21 Best Songs About Loyalty (Music Video + Lyrics!)

Songs about loyalty remind us who we can rely on when things are tough or when we need a companion. These songs make us feel loved or remind us of those who give and offer us loyalty. Loyalty has been undervalued when in fact, loyalty goes hand in hand with commitment and dedication to another individual, allowing respect and trust to thrive.

I could never earn Your heart
I could never reach that far
But You have pulled me close
You've never let me go

The subject of this song is The Almighty's loyalty. Unlike humans, the Almighty would never abandon us, despite the fact that we have broken his covenant, not been good, and are unworthy. When God loves, it is sincere, firm, enduring, unwavering, and constantly faithful.

Ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you, babe

Ain't No Mountain High Enough should always be kept in mind whenever we are faced with circumstances that are challenging to overcome. Through its lyrics of love, this song exemplifies loyalty. The song's vocalists continually assert that nothing in the world will be able to separate them, not even a mountain, river, wind, or valley.

The song “Loyal Brave True,” sung by Christina Aguilera, is played throughout the credits of the live-action Mulan film, which was released in 2020. The phrase “the mighty warrior Mulan: the loyal, the brave, the true” features the song's title, which alludes to Mulan's father, Hua Zhou, describing her to their ancestors.

Should I ask myself in the water
What a warrior would do?
Tell me, underneath my armor
Am I loyal, brave and true?
Am I loyal, brave and true?

The phrase “Loyal Brave True” reflects the tricky balancing act between vulnerability and strength. Mulan has always been about being bold, loyal, and genuine; you still get to decide what this means. Ultimately, it might be better to just do what feels right to you.

4. Faithfully by Journey

Music Video: Journey – Faithfully (Official Video) – YouTube
Lyric Video: Journey – Faithfully lyrics – YouTube
Link to Lyrics: Journey – Faithfully lyrics – YouTube
The song's lyrics discuss a singer's connection with his family when he is touring and away from home.

And being apart ain't easy on this love affair
Two strangers learn to fall in love again
I get the joy of rediscovering you
Oh, girl, you stand by me
I'm forever yours

Given that Jonathan Cain and his wife split shortly after the song's debut, it is one of the most devastating lyrics in the music. Jonathan wrote the song as a letter to his wife, outlining the challenges of being a rock musician on the road while also married. Jonathan professes to be her spiritual life partner no matter how far apart they are.

5. Loyal To Me by Nina Nesbitt

Yeah, if you have to question, “Is he loyal to me?
“Well then he's probably not and you should probably leave

In contrast to the previous songs, this song included examples and circumstances demonstrating a man's lack of loyalty. Even if she already has the sense that he isn't loyal, the story is about a girl who doubts if her lover is truly loyal to her. She highlighted warning signals frequently displayed by an unfaithful man, such as sleeping yet remaining online. Many people may relate to this song because we spend more time online.

6. All of Me by John Legend

It's a powerful love song with astonishment in its lyrics, with Legend's vocals and piano playing a stirring duel.

Give your all to me, I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose, I'm winning

“All of me loves all of you,” he says, emphasizing how much he adores her and how this won't ever change. They are aware that sometimes life is challenging and unfair. They are mindful that they are indestructible as long as they have each other.  They are conscious that true love and enduring happiness with one another need to give everything they have. It takes loyalty to decide to stick with someone through hardships.

7. Lego House by Ed Sheeran

Lyric Video: Ed Sheeran – Lego House [LYRICS] – YouTube
Link to Lyrics: Ed Sheeran – Lego House Lyrics | AZLyrics.com
‘I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done, I think I love you better now
I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done, I think I love you better now, now

There are several Lego metaphors in this song. This verse means that a robust building is constructed via trial and error. You improve at creating quality things by learning from your failures. Similarly, relationships are the same. There will be wonderful and terrible moments, but he has understood that it will still work out if he doesn't give up and they support one another.

Because the foundation is based on trust, love, and loyalty, they can stand together forever.

8. Marry Me by Jason Derulo

Lyric Video: Jason Derulo – Marry Me (Lyrics) || I'll say, “Will you marry me?” – YouTube
Link to Lyrics: Jason Derulo – Marry Me Lyrics | AZLyrics.com
This song demonstrates the man's sincerity since he can and will wait for the right moment to wed the woman he loves, and he will stop at nothing to marry her and fill the void in her life.

How many girls in the world can make me feel like this?
Baby I don't ever plan to find out
The more I look, the more I find the reasons why
You're the love of my life

Because he already has her, this particular sentence implies that he won't even be able to look at other girls. He has no other option and will remain devoted to you for the rest of his days.

9. Grenade by Bruno Mars

Lyric Video: Bruno Mars – Grenade (Lyrics) – YouTube
Link to Lyrics: Bruno Mars – Grenade Lyrics | AZLyrics.com
Bruno Mars' song Grenade is about risking everything for someone who hardly wants to be with you. They have a one-sided connection. 

Oh, I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for you, baby
But you won't do the same

Bruno expresses his love for the woman by saying he would be willing to jeopardize his safety and go through agony to spare her from misery, for example, by catching a grenade.

We've learned through experience that you can't control someone's loyalty. No matter how well you treat someone, they might not return the favor, which is how life works.

An angel's smile is what you sell
You promise me heaven, then put me through hell
Chains of love got a hold of me
When passion's a prison, you can't break free

You Give Love a Bad Name references how she broke his heart and caused him to completely lose faith in the idea of romantic connections. He was taken in by her angelic smile, but she afterward sentenced him to hell. She betrayed his loyalty and effort, which allowed her to vilify love. They wouldn't betray you if they were loyal.

Find out what we're made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

It's great to have friends when things are going well, but you can tell whether someone is a true friend if they stick by you even when things are difficult.

Loyalty is the willingness to put others before yourself and remain by them through good times and bad.

It's not always rainbows and butterflies
It's compromise that moves us along, yeah
My heart is full and my door's always open

Although he is aware that life isn't always great  (not rainbows and butterflies), he is eager to work with it.

Adam is still there waiting for him, even if she belongs to someone else.

Around for a man like me
Guess I'm on my way
Mighty glad you stayed

Even if the narrator and his ex may have split up, it is difficult for him to continue with his life.

In this song, the narrator pleads for his partner's faith while demonstrating his loyalty to her through a series of events. 

I said I'd never let you go, and I never did
I said I'd never let you fall, and I always meant it
If you didn't have this chance, then I never did
You'll always find me right there, again

In any relationship, loyalty and trust go hand in hand. It's true that if your companion is lying to you, you can't expect to get a faithful partner or even a healthy relationship. One of the most damaging behaviors in relationships is lying, which is also one of the main causes of broken relationships.

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake

To be loyal to your family, as Aristotle stated, you must ignore or overlook its imperfections.
