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.

Thissong helped me wirte my suicide note

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

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

This song is something that I go to when I’m feeling down, and can’t cry. It immediately triggers the tears. It’s very relatable to, and it happens TO A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD, TOO!

6 Adam's Song - Blink-182

This never fails to have me in tears

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 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's a great song, and I love the bit at the end

The Contenders

11 My Immortal - Evanescence

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