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

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 How to Save a Life - The Fray Cover Art

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!

I never appreciated it until I was older and understood it.

3 This Song Saved My Life - Simple Plan This Song Saved My Life - Simple Plan Cover Art

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 Be Still - The Fray Cover Art

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 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace Cover Art

Great song sad

7 Hurt - Johnny Cash Hurt - Johnny Cash Cover Art

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 Adam's Song - Blink-182 Cover Art

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

9 How to Disappear Completely - Radiohead How to Disappear Completely - Radiohead Cover Art

Blink 182 is above this. Let that sink in.

10 Bullet - Hollywood Undead Bullet - Hollywood Undead Cover Art

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

The Contenders
11 Headfirst for Halos - My Chemical Romance Headfirst for Halos - My Chemical Romance Cover Art

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.

12 My Immortal - Evanescence My Immortal - Evanescence Cover Art

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

13 Fade to Black - Metallica Fade to Black - Metallica Cover Art

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.

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.

14 Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin Cover Art

Just put it well above Grenade please.

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

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

17 Skyscraper - Demi Lovato Skyscraper - Demi Lovato Cover Art

This song saved me

18 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails Hurt - Nine Inch Nails Cover Art
19 Nobody's Home - Avril Lavigne Nobody's Home - Avril Lavigne Cover Art

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

20 Grenade - Bruno Mars Grenade - Bruno Mars Cover Art

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
