Top 10 Saddest Evanescence Songs


The Top Ten

1 My Immortal

What? My Immortal is number 3? Come on, this song is easily number 1. It is sadder than other Evanescence songs.

Not difficult to choose. The whole song is sadness. However, it's a beautiful song. Amy Lee speaks to your soul - Userguy44

Great list but My Immortal is definitely number 1.

THIS WILL ALWAYS BE THE SADDEST EVANESCENCE SONG EVER! I cry every time I hear this even when I try so hard not to.

That feeling you get when nobody talks to you and you feel all alone for a long time... That is what the song talks about. This song is very peacefull and sad... - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

I adore this song, it makes me think of my boyfriend of three years. He got killed in a car crash, it haunts me and I hate myself for breathing without him

The piano would be more than enough to tear you up, so don't even get me started on the vocals.

Honestly, this song is a tie with My Immortal in terms of sadness. What makes me think that this is a more powerful and in depth song at the end of the day is that it intimately expresses losing someone forever rather than being sad over a break up. It’s much easier to make it malleable into whatever situation you’re in life whether you’re feeling lonely, dealt with rejection, or lost someone you love.

This song always makes me cry... Amy's voice is magnificent and the music of the song is really really sad. What makes it sadder is the lyrics... That feeling when you lose someone and it haunts you forever in the point of hating yourself... Up at number 1. I even got tears when I wrote that comment - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Its about feeling bad when her sister died, this is one of her most meaningful songs.

It's of the most sad songs I've ever heard

It is about her sister who died chiled

4 Lost In Paradise

The piano made a really sad tune and it was a great idea to put violins here. Amy's voice is really sad. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

I love this song so much. I'm listening to it right now and trying not to cry.

I was sad and in pain and this song healed me.

5 Your Star

The tune of this song is really sad and Amy put all her feelings in this song - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

6 Missing

That feeling you get when you did sins and that people won't forgive you... That's what the song is about - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

7 My Heart Is Broken

The title says it. A really sad breakup song. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

8 The Last Song I'm Wasting On You

The Last Song I'm Wasting On You is heartbreaking! The lyrics are so poetic and melancholic. I think this song deserves to be in the top 5 at least! - jaxie

This is one of the saddest songs Ev has ever put out. It should be in the top 5.

'Sparkling grey, they're my own veins.
Anymore than a whisper, any sudden movement of my heart.
And I know, I know I'll have to watch them pass away...
Just get through this day...'

9 Lithium

The lyrics are really sad and Amy's voice too - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

10 Understanding

Honestly this has to be, hands down one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. This song epitomizes what it feels like to truly be absolutely done with being alive. There is nothing left on this earth to live for. I consider this a song to firstly down a bottle of codeine, then slit your wrists in a bathtub before fading into the other side.
