The Contenders: Page 7XW

121Everytime - Britney Spears
122Gouge Away - Pixies

This is a good angry depression song. The loud and quiet dynamic of the song is original and fitting to the music. -

123Time - Pink Floyd
124With or Without You - U2V2 Comments
125Turn the Page - Metallica
126Perfect - Simple Plan

Makes me cry nearly every time I hear it... :(

Back in my emo "My life is over, no one gets me" days I listened to this song just because I was being dramatic. Now It's more of a I'm a disappointment to myself and my parents fml kinda thing. Ya feel?

127Bullet - Hollywood Undead

Suicide is so hard to describe. They portray the thoughts before it why they did it so perfectly.

This song makes me realize I'm not the only person in this world with "problems"

It's about suicide. How could you not cry?

Oh my god this is my favorite song

128My December - Linkin Park

The perfect song to listen to on a silent snowy evening for thinking about life.

129Small Bump - Ed Sheeran

Sad. Abortion is the worst thing to right about. The fact he had the strength to write this let alone sing this amazed me.

130All by Myself - Eric Carmen
131Make It Stop - Rise Against
132Suicide Is Painless - The Mash

For this to not be on the list is blasphemy. Just look at the lyrics: The game of life is hard to play, I'm gonna lose it anyway, The losing card I'll someday lay, so this is all I have to say. One of the first songs about suicide, and yet stunningly realistic today.

13345 - Shinedown
134Terrible Things - Mayday Parade

This is a one of those truthful songs about the pain of falling in love. It has a beautiful story about love, loss, and how people handle it.
The lyrics are so well written and beautiful. They are also very truthful. "Don't fall in love there's just too much to lose."

Sad about his wife dying and him having to care for the child alone

One of the saddest songs I've ever listened to. Gets me every time.

I cry every single time

135Street Spirit - Radiohead

I'm surprised this is so low on this list. This is honestly one of the most depressing songs I have ever heard.

There is just no hope in this song, but yet still perfect!

The dark tunnel without the light at the end

136Save Me from Myself - Brian "Head" Welch

This song is just about the most depressing song I have ever heard. It talks about how as long as there is something you believe in, you have a meaning to live. Truly beautiful and inspiring to those who believe in God AND to individuals who just want a meaning in their lives.

137Locked Away - R. City

Story of my life, pretty much:
"If I showed you my flaws
If I couldn't be strong
Tell me honestly
Would you still love me the same? "
"A gal I know that I can trust..."
"Cause I need a gal who's always by my side..."
And even though the music is upbeat and happy, the lyrics got me.

138Landslide - Fleetwood Mac
139Song Cry - Jay-ZV1 Comment
140Dream On - Aerosmith

I always tear up whe I listen to this. Steven Tylers voice sounds so sad and destroyed. One of the greats
