Sad Songs

Because there's nothing better than being punched in the gut by emotions when you're listening to a song.

We all need those songs to cry to.

I hope you packed a lunch, because you're going on a 'feel' trip!

Hell by Casey

_"I guess I just couldn't bring myself to face the fact that maybe we were never what I wanted us to be.
Maybe the love that we had made was not the beautiful home I always imagined that we had built.
Because you were the light of my life, but no matter how brightly you shone the shadow you cast
was never dark enough to cancel out the glare.
Maybe I would have left sooner if I could have seen it then, maybe you were never there. "

Ah, Casey.
This band knows how to capture heart break in its entirety. If you've never experienced heart break before, then you'll get a taste of what it's like by simply listening.

Terrible Things by Mayday Parade

She said, "Boy can I tell you a terrible thing?
It seems that I'm sick and I've only got weeks.
Please, don't be sad now, I really believe,
You were the greatest thing that's ever happened to me."

Slow, so slow I fell to the ground on my knees.

So don't fall in love, there's just too much to lose
If you're given the choice, then I beg you to choose
To walk away, walk away, don't let her get you.
I can't bear to see the same happen to you."

This is a little bit of throw back, but who doesn't love a little Mayday Parade? If anyone can do sad well, it's them. Mayday Parade's gotten me through every break up and every little curve life's thrown at me.

Our Father Is Missing by From Indian Lakes

I have been living this way since the day that I was born
I have been trying to change but I am so easily bored
By the idea of saying “thank you” and “how are you?”
Until I go to sleep

But I would like to be loved and I am trying my best
But the devil is inside me and he is coming out through my chest
And he is whispering in my ear that everyone in the world would like me dead"

This song captures what it's like living with mental illness when all hope is gone. I think the artists interpretation was spot on, and the lyrics make my heart pound and I forget how to breathe for a minute. I love when music is able to speak my feelings in ways I cannot express myself. Don't you?

I Hate U I Love U (feat. Olivia O'Brien)

_

I hate you. I love you.
I hate that I love you
Don't want to, but I can't put
nobody else above you
I hate you. I love you.
I hate that I want you
You want her, you need her
And I'll never be her"_

Heart break seems to be a common trend when it comes to sad songs, but it's important to pick out the good ones. Here. This is a good one. You're welcome.

I See Everything by La Dispute

March 5-The cancer is furious but our son is resilient
We have all the faith we'll get through this no matter what the end
Treatments are violent but he keeps on smiling
It's amazing finding joy in the little things"

I enjoy the rawness and the truth behind this one. It's weird enjoying a sad song, but I respect art and good story telling and this is just that. La Dispute is known for telling stories through their music. They're one of a kind. The upmost appreciation for this one.

Regret by September Stories

"I’ve played with the thought of running away from what haunts me most
Or maybe just ending the story short
Either would be better than this place that I’m at now"

Regret's probably the source of all unhappiness. This is a new band and for their first single I was impressed and sad of course. Spoken word is extremely hard to do and I was blown away.

Hospital For Souls by Bring Me the Horizon

How are we on a scale of one to ten?
Could you tell me what you see?
Do you wanna talk about it?
How does that make you feel?

Have you ever took a blade to your wrists?
Have you been skipping meals?
We're gonna try something new today
How does that make you feel?

Another one about going through life with mental illness. These songs are great because even though they're sad, they off comfort for those who feel alone. Once again, that wonderful feeling of finding a song that speaks exactly what you feel.

I Still Remember Who I Was Last Summer by Old Gray

I once thought love was real when we sat atop that hill and looked at cars below.
We used to grow. You kissed me on the forehead and told me that you’d never let go.
You told me that you’d love me until the end. Which begs the question, are we now dead?

Another heartbreaker. This is a song about loss. This is a song about leaving. The band admits to this being one of their saddest songs written. It's sad but will also move you.

I Can Feel A Hot One by Manchester Orchestra

"I was in the front seat, shaking it out
And I was asking if you felt alright
I never want to hear the truth
I want to hear your voice, it sounded fine
My voice, it sounded fine"

I used to listen to this song solely because of how beautiful it sounded, and one day I listened to the lyrics. I really listened to them and it hit me like a brick realizing what this song was about. Every time I listen to song, I always find new ways to interpret it and I find that so exciting. A new story, a new meaning, a new message every time.
