The Top Ten

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

This song relates to my life 100%, I feel unwanted, and alone. I have no true friends that I can count on

This song is one I can relate with. I am in so much pain... and I write like this too.

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 song made me realize how much I hate myself and my life

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.

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

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

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!

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

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

This song should be spread to all the people who only think of the negative side of life this is literally how I feel

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.

One of my favorite songs. Very relatible, and ger voice suits the song perfectly.

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

How is this so far down. come on.

7 Adam's Song - Blink-182 Adam's Song - Blink-182 Cover Art

This never fails to have me in tears

Should be number 1

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

Blink 182 is above this. Let that sink in.

9 Hurt - Johnny Cash Hurt - Johnny Cash Cover Art

How the hell is this not number one?

10 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.

The Contenders

11 Bullet - Hollywood Undead Bullet - Hollywood Undead Cover Art

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

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

12 My Immortal - Evanescence My Immortal - Evanescence Cover Art

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

It's not that sad, but I LOVE it

The only song that's made my cry ;(

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

True masterpiece.

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 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.

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