2 How to Save a Life - The Fray

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

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

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

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.

The Contenders

11 Bullet - Hollywood Undead

Its really sad and I can't stop crying at the end

It shows the thoughts of a suicidal person

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

Just put it well above Grenade please.

14 Fade to Black - Metallica

True masterpiece. - Userguy44

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.

30 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

Even though I have listened to this song my entire life, it hasn't come into focus until now, as I struggle with similar issues, what this song was really about. Very beautiful yet sad at the same time.

78! This song tells about a man who suffers depression and enters a state in his mind and then dies. How is this so low!
