The Top Ten

1 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

2 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

This is basically my entire life.

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

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 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.

6 Adam's Song - Blink-182

This never fails to have me in tears

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

This is a really sad song, never fails to make me cry

So sad! every time I hear it I start to cry!
