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! - Littlemiss119956

You all clearly never listened to DSBM... - TrappedInsideIt

This is basically my entire life.

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 never appreciated it until I was older and understood it.

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

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

It�'s just so true and I just broke when I hear it. Listen to it now...
