"Good bye everybody, I've got to go. Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth. Mama I don't wanna die, but sometimes wish I was never born at all" that line made me cry, nothing described my feelings at the time like that line that
If you listen to the first 2 minutes of it, it makes you wanna cry. The song isn't really the best but gets better. It's still depressing!
What this is bohemian rhapsody
My Aunty had leukemia and this was played at her funeral. I've never cried so hard, and every time I hear this it makes me ball.
I hate how great songs slip through the cracks on lists like this. This absolutely deserves more recognition.

A beautiful instrumental that needs no words to express the pain felt in this song. Listening to this song takes to the land of darkness that this blues man endured without uttering a single world. Only a Slide Guitar and some moans. A perfect example of how actions speak louder than words.
More than anything else ever recorded, this tune reaches down inside and pulls something out of you. It's simultaneously one of the most difficult and rewarding experiences, listening to it. I can't make it through without choking up; it's what I imagine dying sounds like.
When I was scrolling through the list I realized that this song is way too depressing to be at 31. So very sad and emotional, even sadder when you hear how he died.
I love this song but I love the seether version is so much better. so sad and the seether version is so heavy its moving
beautiful, beautiful, and beautiful...
Words can't describe this song
It is a very beautiful song, but the music sounds so sad.
Beautiful, Carey shows her sadness

It's about a kid who committed suicide. This is an extremely sad song.
It is the song of doing what you hate one last time before fnishing horror. - AnonymousChickV2 Comments
This song starts out with some faint guitar sound, slowly crescendoing and then Maynard's vocals kick in. His lyrics are very meaningful in a way. The last part of the song where the guitar sound gets bigger is complemented by the "halo slippin down" lyrics, which convey a sad, deadly feeling. - NuMetalManiakV1 Comment
This is one of my favorite songs of all time, I cannot believe it's not on the top 10!
I can't believe this isn't here, this song brought me to tears, because of its meaning and how I relate to it, it is about someone who is depressed, and just wants to go to sleep, to escape from all the harms that he faces everyday, and he doesn't wants to get up, he doesn't wants to face all those horrors once again, even though he knows he has to, this relates and make me think abaout suicide, (the same happened to myself) and the way he tells his loved ones that if he doesn't wakes up, if he dies, to don't feel bad for him "because in the deep of my hearth thast were I want to go"
Ps: I am not a die hard fan of the smiths, actually that's their only song I like
312... Okay, just listen to the lyrics and then tell me My Immortal is sadder.
Sadder than many of the songs on this list, I'll tell you. - LarkwingFlight
Sentimental duet by Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue about what seems to be a young couple in love having just found each other. Told from alternating points of view, it is revealed in the third verse the young man is a mentally disturbed man who eventually kills the woman he loves. What makes this so sad is that even at the end of the third verse, it is still a lovesong. The act of killing has something inevitable to it, as if the man had to do it despite truly loving the girl. Unkike much of the "Murder Ballads" album, it never gets violent either. The actual killing is more implied then explicitly described. In the end, the man even lays down a rose on her dead body. The beautiful emotional outfit adds much to the atmosphere. - Martin_Canine
