The Top Ten
1 Goodbye (I'm Sorry) - Jamestown Story

This song is SO sad and you can even tell that the guy singing it is in real pain! SO beautiful yet depressing at the same time! It always makes me want to cry!

This is literally my life I can relate. When I learn the lyrics I'll be singing my feelings and my life out. I love this song

This song is one I can relate with. I am in so much pain... and I write like this too.

This song relates to my life 100%, I feel unwanted, and alone. I have no true friends that I can count on

2 How to Save a Life - The Fray

I've listened to this song since I was a small child, the first time I remember hearing it was when I was around seven, after my dad threatened me and hit his girlfriend while she was pushing me into my room to hide. I sat there, listening to this song on repeat, for an hour. Only years later, did I find out what this song means.

This is an amazing song w/ a great message, and is the saddest yet greatest song ever.

Such a beautiful song! I love it! The Fray will always be one of my favorite songs!

This song has helped me when I was slipping into the darkness. reminding me of a friend that did stay up all night with me

3 This Song Saved My Life - Simple Plan

The part where the kids sing in the chorus REALLY pushes me over the edge! SO beautiful and amazing! This song goes out to everyone who has that one song that always makes them smile!

4 Be Still - The Fray

Okay so pretty much EVERY SINGLE Fray song makes me cry! Issac Slade has such a beautiful, heart wrenching voice! I love them because they don't sing about all that mainstream crap! They don't sing about clubs, girls, sex, drugs, or anything crappy like that! They actually have songs that are important and need to be heard!

5 Her Last Words - Courtney Parker

Best song to correlate with your suicidal and self harming thoughts and feelings when you just need comfort knowing that other people go through the same types of feelings.

When I first heard this song, I was streaming in tears! I in fact have depression to. Nearly killed myself the other day. If I commit suicide I either wanna hang myself or jump off a roof... Eh, Well I love this song! It's one of my favorites! Every time it makes me bursting in tears though.

The first time I heard this song I cried and tried to give my sister a hug but she beat me up...

This song, does something to me. It's like I feel what she is feeling and then I just start to cry

6 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace

Takes me back to a period of my life that was an intense struggle of addiction where I made mistakes that I didn't know id never be able to say sorry for and I lost people I didn't realize I couldn't live without until it was too late. This song was the soundtrack to my downfall and the reason why I've been suicidal ever since. It's a daily struggle not to. I can hardly listen to it.

Great song sad

7 Hurt - Johnny Cash

This song literally brings me to my knees. To see the man in black as a broken dying old man with so much regret, just literally tears my heart out. Everyone should hear this at least one time. He snatched it from trent Reznor and made it his own, a final warning to us all from the man who did it all and found out what was important and what wasn't in life. Theres a message in this. Don't miss it.

The music video is one of the saddest music videos ever.

How the hell is this not number one?

8 Adam's Song - Blink-182

Greg Barnes committed suicide in 2000 by listening to this song on repeat a hundred times. Actually, the real reason was because he lost one of his best friends during the Columbine High School massacre on April 20th 1999. And since then, he had a depressing life, listened to this song so many times and finally took his own life on May 6th 2000.

Should be number 1

Definitely had a happy song vibe but gets real deep when you listen to the lyrics

9 Bullet - Hollywood Undead

This is practically making suicide sound almost even fun. However, it doesn't depict "why" he's suicidal.

This was one of my anthems when I was suicidal, Even though its depressing it still makes me feel better

Has such a happy beat I love how its like a twisted look on suicide

10 How to Disappear Completely - Radiohead

Blink 182 is above this. Let that sink in.

The Contenders
11 My Immortal - Evanescence

It's the perfect most awesome suicidal or need to be depressed song about losing someone. And she sings it perfectly. Nobody can ever sing any song better than she did this one. I feel every word. See you on the other side guys. Don't be me. Get help. ONE LOVE.

Isn't this song about the death of a loved one?

12 Headfirst for Halos - My Chemical Romance

This song is so upbeat and happy when you first hear it, but when you actually listen to the lyrics, you realise that the upbeat tone is just the mask that most people use to hide their depression. The happiness is actually scary.

13 Fade to Black - Metallica

As long as you can appreciate this music this should be number one above all else. There music speaks words and before they even say a word you can tell what it's about and could start to break down. Dealing with depression, this song has most actually described it in my opinion.

It's so easy to just play this, sit back, take it all in, and then let it all out. It's just one relatable lyric after another, accompanied by great music, and with one of the greatest guitar solos of all time. One of my favourites. Should be number one, hands down.

14 Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin

Just put it well above Grenade please.

15 Fix You - Coldplay
16 Suicidal Thoughts - The Notorious B.I.G.

A raw suicide note. So heavy and deserves a much higher spot.

17 Skyscraper - Demi Lovato

This song saved me

18 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails
19 Let Her Go - Passenger
20 Grenade - Bruno Mars

I would do that for my friends and family even if their older than me. I'd rather my life end than theirs and I don't wanna take more pain. I know they'll have more pain but they don't have as much pain as me now.

I listened to this song when I was 10 not knowing what it meant but now I'm 19 and I can relate to every word of this song and I understand it.

I just wish I had smone to talk to about it that's why I have this song

21 Whiskey Lullaby - Brad Paisley
22 Nobody's Home - Avril Lavigne

The interlude brings me to tears. I can fully relate to it.

23 Mad World - Michael Andrews
24 Otherside - Red Hot Chili Peppers
25 Creep - Radiohead
