wow that is hard! I really would'nt expect a 13 year old to connect totally to any music when she hadnt actually experienced heartache! Try You tube find a song that you really love. try to find words in it that you can relate to so think of loving your friends etc & if its sad think how you would feel if you didnt see them again if they moved for example.
A lot of love songs meanings can also be changed to mean other things think of your mum & dad or family members too. Hope this helps

Don't Laugh At Me... I don't know who it's by, but if you've ever been bullied it's a good one.
Firework acoustic by Katy Perry is a good one, I think.
Sorry I don't have more suggestions :P I just can't think of any that don't have anything to do with love or something.

What about dance, dance, dance by Lykke Li?

There is a long list of lyrical songs here:
www.squidoo.com . . .

I would listen to the clips and see what you like.

I don't know where you are, or what 'lyrical' songs and routines are like where you are, but my 13 year old daughter is dancing a neo-classical contemporary routine to a Regina Spektor song, "Laughing". She's never experienced grief or loss, but she loves the song so it's working for her and her teacher.

Maybe just the connection with the song itself will be enough for you?

Let us know how you go.

I love to dance to the song Pure Imagionation and Butterfly Fly Away :) They are both beautiful songs that are easy for younger dancers to relate to. But alot of dance teachers and choreographers chose songs that do deal with heartbreak and love and if this happens then she'll just have to act, dancing is a type of acting anyhow.

I know you can't totally relate but Turning Tables or Chasing Pavements both by Adele are extremely good solo lyrical songs. :)

smile by avril lavigne is a good one - my friend just did a lyrical dance to it and it seemed very open and strong - probably because the message isn't hidden in a metaphor, she just sings what she want's to say

I so know how hard it can be to find a song you can relate to. I personally believe that if you dig down deep you can trigger emotions that aren't always happy but if not that is so fine and who says that lyrical always has to be about heartache or pain it's just a dance that helps you express your feeling so on that note i would try:
happy-Leona Lewis
dream- Priscilla Ahn
lighthouse- Hope
rain- Priscilla Ahn
A drop in the ocean- Ron Pope

Hope this helped!

I did Wild Horses by Natasha Bedingfield. It's all about having freedom and wanting to be free so I think you'd be able to relate to that. Here's a list of some other songs I think would be good:
Long Live - Taylor Swift
Never Grow Up - Taylor Swift
The White Stripes - We're Gonna Be Friends
Ryan Cabrera - I Will Remember You
Miley Cyrus - I'll Always Remember You
Angel Taylor - Like You Do
He Is We - Too Beautiful
Miranda Lambert - Virginia Bluebell
Sugababes - Ugly (Acoustic?)
Selena Gomez - Who Says (Acoustic)
Justin Bieber - Pray
Nevertheless - Topics

Halo - (the one from One Tree Hill)
The Climb - Miley Cyrus
Blame It On The Weatherman - B*Witched
When I Look At You - Miley Cyrus

Here are some others that require a little more emotional commitment that I've danced to myself:

Slow Me Down - Emmy Rossum (This song has been used to death but it is suitable for what you ask for)
Shadow of the Day - Linkin Park
Amazing Grace - whichever version you like most.
