2 How to Save a Life - The Fray

Such a beautiful song! I love it! The Fray will always be one of my favorite songs! - Littlemiss119956

I didn't understand this song until I was older but then when I actually heard the lyrics, I was crying by the end of the song

I'm not "older" but every time I hear it I cry its just so much truth

If I was a tad bit softer I would’ve cried

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! - Littlemiss119956

" just the right time. This song saved my life."

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! - Littlemiss119956

5 Her Last Words - Courtney Parker

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

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

The song reminds me how dark the world is in a good way

I just love it, can't say anything else : /

6 Adam's Song - Blink-182

This never fails to have me in tears

Should be number 1

7 How to Disappear Completely - Radiohead

Blink 182 is above this. Let that sink in. - ProPanda

8 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.

9 Hurt - Johnny Cash

Correction: Hurt - Nine Inch Nails.

NIN wrote this song, Cash covered it. Give them the credit - ryanrimmel

How the hell is this not number one?

10 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace

Great song sad

How is this so far down. come on.

The Contenders

11 Bullet - Hollywood Undead

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

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

I love this song, it's so happy in such a twisted way

It shows the thoughts of a suicidal person

12 My Immortal - Evanescence

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

It's not that sad, but I LOVE it

13 Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin

Just put it well above Grenade please.

14 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.

15 Whiskey Lullaby - Brad Paisley
16 Nobody's Home - Avril Lavigne

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

17 Skyscraper - Demi Lovato

Simply beautiful. An athem to all lost people.

18 Suicidal Thoughts - The Notorious B.I.G.

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

€�A matter of fact I'm sick of talking”

19 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails
20 Slipped Away - Avril Lavigne

This song always gets me, should be higher

Uhh actually that song is dedicated to her grandfather that passed away.

21 Grenade - Bruno Mars
