Saddest Song

I agree with these so much!

I’d like to add

Wrong Direction - [name_f]Hailee[/name_f] Steinfeld :sob:
[name_f]Pretty[/name_f] much all of Dear [name_u]Evan[/name_u] [name_m]Hansen[/name_m]
First [name_u]Man[/name_u] - [name_f]Camila[/name_f] Cabello (not really sad just emotional)
[name_f]Pretty[/name_f] much all of SOUR
I [name_u]Love[/name_u] You’s - [name_f]Hailee[/name_f] Steinfeld
What A Time - [name_f]Julia[/name_f] Micheals and [name_u]Niall[/name_u] Horan
you broke me first - [name_u]Tate[/name_u] McRae

I’m sure there are lots more that I’ll think of out of nowhere but that’s all for now

I second this. Especially For [name_u]Forever[/name_u] and Words Fail


@RubyAlexandria It’s nice to see someone appreciating Eminem’s sad songs! I don’t think a lot of people recognize them and they’re great.

@wintersnowflake03 Oh boy, don’t even get me started on my girl Lorde. [name_f]Queen[/name_f].

@oceansea [name_u]Love[/name_u] it! Such a good band.

@Rosebeth [name_f]Rosi[/name_f]! BEIRUT! MICHAEL KIWANUKA! Yes!

@eireann Ugh Breathe Me is the worst (the best lol). And of course, have to mention [name_m]Ed[/name_m] and Coldplay. It wouldn’t be a sad song list without them!

@EdgeOfTheMeadow The A Team is amazing.

@EllArePea I listened to SOUR on the way to work today. Phew boy it’s a good album.

I have several lists, so here’s what I’ve got, plus a line from the song that specifically gets to me :sweat_smile:

TWs: death, suicide, alcoholism, child abuse

  • [name_u]Forever[/name_u] and Always - Parachute

Please, just remember even if I’m not there, I’ll always love you, forever and always

  • Untilted - Simple Plan

I’ve made my mistakes, I’ve got no where to run, the night goes on as I’m fading away

  • Before You Go - [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] Capaldi

Was there something I could’ve said to make it all stop hurting? It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless

  • Hotel Ceiling - Rixton

I’ve been staring at the hotel ceiling, drinking everything I’ve found this evening. Trying to hold on to the sweetest feeling, so I’ll never let you go, don’t you leave me lonely

  • Are You Lonesome Tonight? - [name_m]Elvis[/name_m] [name_u]Presley[/name_u]

[name_f]Honey[/name_f], you lied when you said you loved me, and I had no cause to doubt you. But I’d rather go on hearing your lies, than go on living without you

  • She Falls Asleep - McFly

She sits alone, on her phone, she’s calling about her broken home, and I don’t know what I should say cause she’s crying

  • Whiskey [name_f]Lullaby[/name_f] - [name_m]Brad[/name_m] [name_u]Paisley[/name_u] ft. [name_f]Alison[/name_f] Krauss

Life is short, but this time it was bigger, than the strength he had to get up off his knees

  • Amnesia - 5 Seconds of [name_f]Summer[/name_f]

Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie? If what we had was real, how could you be fine?
'Cause I’m not fine at all

  • Vesper’s Goodbye - [name_u]Nick[/name_u] [name_m]Jonas[/name_m] and the Administration

[name_m]Lay[/name_m] me down to rest, it’s a lover’s final breath

  • Everytime - [name_f]Britney[/name_f] Spears

And every time I try to fly I fall, without my wings I feel so small. I guess I need you, baby

  • I Can’t Make You [name_u]Love[/name_u] Me - [name_f]Bonnie[/name_f] Raitt

'Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t. You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t

  • [name_f]Lullaby[/name_f] - Nickelback

And if you can’t tell, I’m scared as hell, 'cause I can’t get you on the telephone

  • What Would You [name_f]Do[/name_f] - City High

What would you do if your son was at home, crying all alone on the bedroom floor

  • Travelin’ Soldier - The Chicks

One [name_m]Friday[/name_m] night at a football game, the Lord’s Prayer said and the anthem sang. And a man said folks would you bow your head, for the list of local Vietnam dead. Crying all alone under the stands, was the piccolo player in the marching band, and one name read and nobody really cared, but a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

  • Concrete [name_u]Angel[/name_u] - [name_f]Martina[/name_f] McBride

A statue stands in a shaded place, an angel girl with an upturned face. A name is written on a polished rock, a broken heart that the world forgot

  • Runaway [name_u]Love[/name_u] - Ludacris ft. [name_f]Mary[/name_f] J. Blige

Now Nicole’s stuck up in a world on her own, forced to think that hell is a place called home


landslide by fleetwood mac is probably cliché but it still gets me! i don’t listen to sad songs really so it’s hard to think of another one. maybe kawaipunahele and wanting memories by keali’i reichel?

@ajenni10 Such a good one. Thanks for sharing such a personal memory!

@leafsgirl44 Wow! I’m glad you added some lines from the songs. Runaway [name_u]Love[/name_u] came out in my middle school years and my best friend and I loved it so much.

@maywake Landslide might be cliche, but it gets me too!

@Snowyblossom I’ve never heard Dolly’s version, but I bet it is better!
