Default Sad Song Lyrics

Have a song that always makes you melancholy yet you still can't get enough of it? Please share it

Please post the lyrics to the saddest songs you know

I will start us off:


Tracy Chapman - Remember The Tinman Lyrics

There are locks on the doors
And chains stretched across all the entries to the inside
There's a gate and a fence
And bars to protect from only God knows what lurks outside

Who stole your heart left you with a space
That no one and nothing can fill
Who stole your heart who took it away
Knowing that without it you can't live

Who took away the part so essential to the whole
Left you a hollow body
Skin and bone
What robber what thief who stole your heart and the key


Who stole your heart
The smile from your face
The innocence the light from your eyes
Who stole your heart or did you give it away
And if so then when and why

Who took away the part so essential to the whole
Left you a hollow body
Skin and bone
What robber what thief
Who stole your heart and the key

Now all sentiment is gone
Now you have no trust in no one

Who stole your heart
Did you know but forget the method and moment in time
Was it a trickster using mirrors and sleight of hand
A strong elixir or a potion that you drank

Who hurt your heart
Bruised it in a place
That no one and nothing can heal
You've gone to wizards, princes and magic men
You've gone to witches, the good the bad the indifferent

But still all sentiment is gone
But still you have no trust in no one

If you can tear down the walls
Throw your armor away remove all roadblocks barricades
If you can forget there are bandits and dragons to slay
And don't forget that you defend an empty space


And remember the tinman
Found he had what he thought he lacked
Remember the tinman
Go find your hear and take it back

Who stole your heart
Maybe no one can say
One day you will find it I pray


This one definitely reminds me of someone I used to know..

That summer, we talked endlessly
always, about everything,
fusion, nothing new for you
i felt, hey, under and, cool breezes
the heavenly

face me, sitting in my memory,
hold me, i remember
face me, sitting in my memory,
hold me, i remember

and we argue, constantly
disagree, about everything
distance, nothing new for me
i feel uneasy, under this thing
thoughts away
the heavenly

face me, sitting in my memory,
hold me, i remember
face me, sitting in my memory,
hold me, i remember
i remember

and darkness falls in my eyes
and days are far from rosy now
and if i asked for the sky
would you still shelter me
when the sky falls

i remember
i remember

face me, sitting in my memory,
hold me, i remember
face me, hidden in my memory,
hold me, i remember
i remember
sitting in my memory
i remember

Sarah McLachlan- Fallen
(I love the trance remix of this song )

Heaven bent to take my hand
And lead me through the fire
Be the long awaited answer
To a long and painful fight

Truth be told I've tried my best
But somewhere along the way
I got caught up in all there was to offer
And the cost was so much more than I could bear

Though I've tried, I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

We all begin with good intent
Love was raw and young
We believed that we could change ourselves
The past could be undone
But we carry on our backs the burden
Time always reveals
The lonely light of morning
The wound that would not heal
It's the bitter taste of losing everything
That I have held so dear.

I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

Heaven bent to take my hand
Nowhere left to turn
I'm lost to those I thought were friends
To everyone I know
Oh they turned their heads embarassed
Pretend that they don't see
But it's one missed step
You'll slip before you know it
And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

Though I've tried, I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

I was hopins someone would post something like this! Ive been listening a lot to one song and I love the imagery in it.

A Pair Of Brown Eye
-Shane McGowan (hes so amazing!)

One summer evening drunk to hell
I stood there nearly lifeless
An old man in the corner sang
Where the water lilies grow
And on the jukebox Johnny sang
About a thing called love
And it's how are you kid and what's your name
And how would you bloody know?

In blood and death 'neath a screaming sky
I lay down on the ground
And the arms and legs of other men
Were scattered all around
Some cursed, some prayed, some prayed then cursed
Then prayed and bled some more
And the only thing that I could see
Was a pair of brown eyes that was looking at me
But when we got back, labeled parts one to three
There was no pair of brown eyes waiting for me

And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
For a pair of brown eyes

I looked at him he looked at me
All I could do was hate him
While Ray and Philomena sang
Of my elusive dream
I saw the streams, the rolling hills
Where his brown eyes were waiting
And I thought about a pair of brown eyes
That waited once for me


So drunk to hell I left the place
Sometimes crawling sometimes walking
A hungry sound came across the breeze
So I gave the walls a talking
And I heard the sounds of long ago
From the old canal
And the birds were whistling in the trees
Where the wind was gently laughing

And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
For a pair of brown eyes



Me and my mom have been trying to figure this song out for a while now. We know the guys drunk and we think hes remembering a war he fought in. And the pair of brown eyes was a soldier on the other side...?

mine is also by Sarah Mclachlan - Angel , this song kills me every time and now they're using it for a commercial for the ASPCA so it makes me weepy even more......

Angel

Spend all your time waiting
for that second chance
for a break that would make it okay
there's always one reason
to feel not good enough
and it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
oh beautiful release
memory seeps from my veins
let me be empty
and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

in the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold hotel room
and the endlessness that you fear
you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here

so tired of the straight line
and everywhere you turn
there's vultures and thieves at your back
and the storm keeps on twisting
you keep on building the lie
that you make up for all that you lack
it don't make no difference
escaping one last time
it's easier to believe in this sweet madness oh
this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

in the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold hotel room
and the endlessness that you fear
you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort there
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here

Yes, there is a story to this. No I won't share.

I Miss You - Stevie Nicks

When I think about you
I think about how much i
Miss you when youre not around
When I think about you
I think about how much i
Cant wait to hear the sound
Of your laughter
Time and distance never matter


Well I miss you now
I have so many questions
About love and about pain
About strained relationships
About fame as only he could explain it to me

Seems like yesterday
I think about how much i
Wish that you were here with me now
The invisible girl that was my name
She walks in and walks out
And Im sorry now
Im sorry now


Paris to rome, london to paris
Always goodbye, I nearly couldnt bear it
Her heart settles down
Shes back on that staircase
On the way up to her place

I can't even listen to this song anymore - I burst into tears. *sigh*

THE FEELING I HAD - Amy Grant

I cannot take the heat
This girl's going home
Standing on my own two feet
Standing alone

I'm just a little weary of
All the talk and all the buzz
And all i ever wanted was
The feeling i had with us

I cannot take the heat
I guess i'm letting go
I'm tired of stitching up my dreams with
This thread of hope

I'm still a believer of
Twin hearts and timeless love
And all i ever wanted was
The feeling i had with us

All i ever wanted was
The feeling i had with us

The road of life is rugged
Any road you choose
And when i find the other side
I'll look for you

But i cannot take the heat
And so i'll say goodbye
A million things i never said
Didn't even try

'cause words are cheap and sometimes cruel
And stuff you hear is seldom true
And all i ever wanted was
The feeling i had with you

Yeah, all i ever wanted was,
The feeling i had with you

"Powder Burns" by The Twilight Singers

I am a firestarter
No ventilation, now
I'm kneeling as the smoke is swallowing
No need for water, darling
I'm dedicated to a feeling
I can't help but following

A slow roulette
A sweet duet
I can't forget
I'm tryin'

Feel the powder burn
Tonite, tonite
There'll be nowhere to turn
It's alright, alright

And I burn
And I want that feeling
Again

I hear somebody calling
And now the fire's in the ceiling
There's no way to stop it now

A silhouette of sweet regret
I can't forget
I'm tryin'

Feel the powder burn
Tonite, tonite
There'll be nowhere to turn
It's alright, alright

And I burn
And no one can see me
And I yearn
'Cuz I want that feeling
Again

A cigarette
The fuse is lit
I can't forget
I'm tryin'

Feel the powder burn
Tonite, tonite
There'll be no self control
It's alright, alright

And I burn
And no one can see me
Tonite, tonite

And I yearn
'Cuz I want that feeling
Tonite, tonite, tonite

Everytime I hear this song it puts me down. Kind of sucks because its so good to

Mudvayne - "World So Cold"

When passion's lost and all the trust is gone,
Way too far, for way too long
Children crying, cast out and neglected,
Only in a world so cold, only in a world
This cold
Hold the hand of your best friend, look into their eyes
Then watch them drift away
Some might say, we've done the wrong things,
For way too long, for way too long

Fever inside the storm,
So I'm turning away.
Away from the name
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

Keep your thorns
'Cause I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

burning whispers, Remind me of the days,
I was left alone, in a world this cold
Guilty of the same things, provoked by
The cause,
I've left alone, in a world so cold
Fever inside the storm,
So I'm turning away.
Away from the name
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

Keep your thorns
'Cause I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

I'm flying, I'm flying away,
Away from the names
(Calling your names)
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
The circumstances of a world so cold

Why does everyone feel like my enemy,
Don't want any part of depression or
Darkness, I've had enough
sick and tired, bring the sun, or I'm gone,
Or I'm gone

I'm backing out, I'm no pawn,
No mother-fucking slave to this,
Never lied
Never left
Never lived
Never loved
Never lost
Never hurt
Never worry about being me, or anyone else
Not a care, no concern, don't give a shit about
Anything

Backing out, giving up, no mother-fucking
Slave to this,
Never lied
Never left
Never lived
Never loved
Never lost
Never hurt
Never worry about being me, or anyone else
Not a care, no concern, don't give a shit about
Anything,

I need to find a darkened corner,
A lightless corner,
Where it's safer and calmer,

I'm turning away.
Away from the name
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

I'm flying, I'm flying away,
Away from the names
(Calling your names)
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
The circumstances of a world so cold

I was twenty one years when I wrote this song
I'm twenty two now, but I wont be for long
People ask when will you grow up to be a man
But all the girls I loved at school
Are already pushing prams

I loved you then as I love you still
Tho I put you on a pedestal,
They put you on the pill
I don't feel bad about letting you go
I just feel sad about letting you know

I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new england
I'm just looking for another girl
I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new england
I'm just looking for another girl

I loved the words you wrote to me
But that was bloody yesterday
I cant survive on what you send
Every time you need a friend

I saw two shooting stars last night
I wished on them but they were only satellites
Is it wrong to wish on space hardware
I wish, I wish, I wish you'd care

I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new england
I'm just looking for another girl




You may search the ocean, you might go 'cross the deep blue sea
But Mama, you'll never find another hot shot like me
I followed my baby from the station to the train
And the blues came down like night and showered me
I left her at the station wringing her hands and crying
I told her she had a home, just as long as I had mine
I've got two women, and you can't tell them apart
I've got one in my bosom, and one I got in my heart
The one in my bosom, she's in Tennessee
And the one in my heart, don't even give a darn for me
I used to say a married woman was the sweetest thing that ever been born
But I've changed that thing, you better leave married women alone
Take my advice: let these married women be
'Cause their husbands'll grab you, beat you ragged as a cedar tree
When a woman say she love you 'bout good as she do herself,
I don't pay her no attention, tell that same line to somebody else
I really don't believe no woman in the whole round world do right,
act like an angel in the daytime, mess by the ditch at night
I'm going, pretty mama, please don't break this rule;
that's why I'm searching these deserts for the blues
I'm going, pretty mama, searching these deserts now
That's why I'm walking my baby home anyhow
Lord, oh Lord
Lordy, Lordy, Lord
Oh Lordy Lord
Lord, Lord, Lord
When a woman say she love you 'bout good as she do herself,
I don't pay her no attention, tell that same line to somebody else
Lord, Lord
Lord, Lord, Lord

This first song is by Corey Smith a new folk/country singer.
This song reminds me of my daddy:

its a sticky situation
that i've gotten myself into
same old obligation
has got me torn between this ole bottle and you
and i'll probably choose the drinking
so you're probably gonna pack your bags
spent a few lonely
i was thinkin before you..
before you come running back..beggin me

to be a little stronger
to stay sober longer
not to let you down
must these demons haunt me
and lay their wicked burdens on me
lord wont you show me
how to put the bottle down
i'll put the bottle down

another bourbon vacation
has got me crawling on the floor
and i'm in no condition
to say a word when she comes walking through the door
the color starts fading
when i hear her crying up and down the hall
as i drift away
i can feel her praying
saying lord will you show him heaven
after all the hell he's been throgh

i can i be a little stronger
and not make her wonder
when im going to let her down
must these demons haunt me
and lay their wicked burdens on me
and lord wont you show me how to put the bottle down

can i be a little stronger
and not make her wonder
when i'm going to let her down
must these demons haunt me
and lay their wicked burdens on me
and lord wont you show me how..
to put the bottle down

lord i wontcha help me to be
just a little stronger
and to stay sober longer
and not to let her down
must these demons haunt me
and lay their wicked burdens on me
ooh lord wont you show me how..
to put the bottle down



This is one of my all time fave songs, I'm a huge Harry Chapin fan, and I remember being 12 and getting excited when the "big girl" in the song got the man...but only for the night...that always kills me.

A Better Place to be
by Harry Chapin

It was an early morning bar room,
And the place just opened up.
And the little man come in so fast and
Started at his cup.
And the broad who served the whisky
She was a big old friendly girl.
And she tried to fight her empty nights
By smilin' at the world.


And she said "Hey Bub, It's been awhile
Since you been around.
Where the hell you been hidin' ?
And why you look so down ?"


But the little man just sat there like he'd never heard a sound.


The waitress she gave out with a cough,
And acting not the least put off,
She spoke once again.


She said, "I don't want to bother you,
Consider it's understood.
I know I'm not no beauty queen,
But I sure can listen good."


And the little man took his drink in his hand
And he raised it to his lips.
He took a couple of sips.
And he told the waitress this story.


"I am the midnight watchman down at Miller's Tool and Die.
And I watch the metal rusting, and I watch the time go by.
A week ago at the diner I stopped to get a bite.
And this here lovely lady she sat two seats from my right.
And Lord, Lord, Lord she was alright.


"Oh she was so damned beautiful that she'd warm a winter's frost.
But she was long past lonely, and well nigh unto lost.
Now I'm not much of a mover, or a pick-em-up easy guy,
But I decided to glide on over, and give her one good try.
And Lord, Lord, Lord she was worth a try.


"Tongued-tied like a school boy, I stammered out some words.
But it did not really matter much, 'cause I don't think she heard.
She just looked clear on through me to a space back in my head.
And it shamed me into silence, as quietly she said,
'If you want me to come with you, then that's all right with me.
Cause I know I'm going nowhere, and anywhere's a better place to be.
Anywhere's a better place to be.'


"I drove her to my boarding house, and I took her up to my room.
And I went to turn on the only light to brighten up the gloom.
But she said, 'Please leave the light off, Oh I don't mind the dark.'
And as her clothes all tumbled 'round her, I could hear my heart.
The moonlight shown upon her as she lay back in my bed.
It was the kind of scene I only had imagined in my head.
I just could not believe it, to think that she was real.
And as I tried to tell her she said 'Shhh.. I know just how you feel.
And if you want to come here with me, then that's all right with me.
'Cause I've been oh so lonely, lovin' someone is a better way to be.
anywhere's a better way to be.'


"The morning come so swiftly but I held her in my arms.
But she slept like a baby, snug and safe from harm.
I did not want to share her with the world or break the mood,
So before she woke I went out and brought us both some food.


"I came back with my paper bag, to find out she was gone.
She'd left a six word letter saying 'It's time that I moved on.'"


The waitress took a bar rag, and she wiped it across her eyes.
And as she spoke her voice came out as something like a sigh.
She said "I wish that I was beautiful, or that you were halfway blind.
And I wish I weren't so dog-gone fat, I wish that you were mine.
And I wish that you'd come with me, when I leave for home.
For we both know all about loneliness, and livin' all alone."


And the little man,
Looked at the empty glass in his hand.
And he smiled a crooked grin,
He said, " I guess I'm out of gin.
And know we both have been so lonely.
And if you want me to come with you, then that's all right with me.
'Cause I know I'm goin' nowhere and anywhere's a better place to be."

And the saddest song:

I was born by the river in a little tent
And just like the river, I've been running ever since
It's been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come

It's been too hard living, but I'm afraid to die
I don't know what's up there beyond the sky
It's been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come

I go to the movie, and I go downtown
Somebody keep telling me "Don't hang around"
It's been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come

Then I go to my brother and I say, "Brother, help me please"
But he winds up knocking me back down on my knees

There've been times that I've thought I couldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come

This song makes me sad every time I hear it.

Lifehouse - "Everything"

Find me here
And speak to me
I want to feel you
I need to hear you
You are the light
That's leading me
To the place
Where I find peace again

You are the strength
That keeps me walking
You are the hope
That keeps me trusting
You are the life
To my soul
You are my purpose
You're everything

And how can I stand here with you
And not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this
(Ahh Yeahhh)

You calm the storms
And you give me rest
You hold me in your hands
You won't let me fall
You steal my heart
And you take my breath away
Would you take me in
Would you take me deeper, now

And how can I stand here with you
And not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this

And how can I stand here with you
And not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this

Cause you're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything, everything
You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything, everything
You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything, everything
You're all I want
You're all I need
Everything, everything...

When how can I stand here with you
And not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this

Oh And how can I stand here with you
And not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better any better than this

And how can I stand here with you
And not be moved by you
Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this

Would you tell me how could it be
Any better than this...

Default I'll 'fess, I'm such a wus...

I'm such a wus.. as a member of the testosterone based species I shouldn't be admitting this. This song always brings back old, but sad memories from high school. BTW, I had a crush on Belinda Carlisle (back in her pudgy Wiskey a Go Go days...)

"Lust to Love" by the Go-Gos
(Too ashamed to post lyrics... I have such poor taste in music...)

Also I like:
"Oldest Story in the World" by the Plimsouls
Basically a song about "loosing the key to paradise"...

This is questionably a sad song... I like:
"I Wanna Be Sedated" by the Ramones
Basically the song goes:
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated

Hey I'm a guy! The poignancy of my emotions are transitory at best...

Why is it that the sad songs are always so damn musically beautiful? This is one of the ones I'm addicted to right now...

The Lighthouse's Tale - Nickel Creek

I am a light house,
worn by the weather and the waves.
I keep my lamp lit,
to warn the sailors on their way.
I'll tell a story,
paint you a picture from my past.
I was so happy...
But joy in this life seldom lasts.

I had a keeper,
He helped me warn the ships at sea.
We had grown closer,
Till His joy meant everything to me.
And He was to marry,
A girl who shone with beauty and light.
And they loved each other,
And with me watched the sunsets into night.

And the waves crashing around me,
the sand slips out to the sea..
and the winds that blow reminds me,
of what has been, and what can never be.

She had to leave us,
My keeper, He prayed for her safe return.
But when the night came,
The weather to a raging storm had turned.
He watched their ship fight,
But in vain, against the wild and terrible winds.
And me, so helpless,
she dashed against the rocks, and met her rest.

And the waves crashing around me,
the sand slips out to the sea..
and the winds that blow reminds me,
of what has been, and what can never be.

Then, on the next day,
My keeper found her washed up on the shore..
He kissed her cold face,
That they'd be together soon, He swore.
I saw Him crying, watched as He buried her in the sand.
And then He climbed my tower,
and off of the edge of me, He ran.

And the waves crashing around me,
the sand slips out to the sea..
and the winds that blow reminds me,
of what has been, and what can never be.

I am a light house,
Worn by the weather and the waves,
And though I'm empty,
I still warn the sailors on their way

Another...

Incubus - "I Miss You"

To see you when I wake up
Is a gift I didn't think could be real.
To know that you feel the same as I do
Is a three-fold, utopian dream.

You do something to me that I cant explain.
So would I be out of line if i said
I miss you.

I see your picture,
I smell your skin on the empty pillow, next to mine.
You have only been gone ten days
But already Im wasting away.

I know Ill see you again
Whether far or soon.
But I need you to know that I care
And, I miss You.
(i miss you)
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Daughters - John Mayer

I know a girl
She puts the color inside of my world
But she's just like a maze
Where all of the walls all continually change
And I've done all I can
To stand on her steps with my heart in my hands
Now I'm starting to see
Maybe it's got nothing to do with me

Fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Oh, you see that skin?
It's the same she's been standing in
Since the day she saw him walking away
Now she's left
Cleaning up the mess he made

So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Boys, you can break
You'll find out how much they can take
Boys will be strong
And boys soldier on
But boys would be gone without the warmth from
A womans good, good heart

On behalf of every man
Looking out for every girl
You are the god and the weight of her world

So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

A Teardrop Left Behind - Black Tape For A Blue Girl

Sitting in your room, beneath a naked bulb you lie and stare
Lock yourself away where you never can be reached, and cry
Knowing how you lied
Still unsure why I want to give myself

Holding back your tears, you know no one's won in this game
The games come around and we both got hurt
Falling, slowly, tear me down inside, my friend
My cruel, uncaring friend, I'll always
Always think of you

Crying alone, you never saw what I want
You always thought that I wanted you
Open you eyes for once and see how I hurt
How you make me hurt
Cause you never cared for me, it took so long to
Understand your thinking and see through your lies
To my truth

It tears me up inside, knowing now your blind
You're never gonna care for me....

*sigh* That song has been haunting me since high school...

These are of course not the most saddening songs, but certainly ones that have that effect.

Porcupine Tree - Stop Swimming

This song leaks out onto the pavement
It could be a joke, it could be a statement
The more that I fake it and pretend I don't care
The more you can read in to what isn't there

Maybe it's time to stop swimming
Maybe it's time to find out where I'm at
What I should do and where I should be
But no-one will give me a map

I'll leave now this can't continue
But I forget which door I came through
And I know that the lift can be painfully slow
So I'm happy to leave by the window

Dream Theater - Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence: Solitary Shell

He seemed no different from the rest
Just a healthy normal boy
His mama always did her best
And he was daddy's pride and joy

He learned to walk and talk on time
But never cared much to be held
And steadily he would decline
Into his solitary shell

As a boy he was considered somewhat odd
Kept to himself most of the time
He would daydream in and out of his own world
But in every other way he was fine

He's a Monday morning lunatic
Disturbed from time to time
Lost within himself
In his solitary shell

A temporary catatonic
Madman on occasion
When will he break out
Of his solitary shell

He struggled to get through his day
He was helplessly behind
He poured himself onto the page
Writing for hours at a time

As a man he was a danger to himself
Fearful and sad most of the time
He was drifting in and out of sanity
But in every other way he was fine

He's a Monday morning lunatic
Disturbed from time to time
Lost within himself
In his solitary shell

A momentary maniac
With casual delusions
When will he be let out
Of his solitary shell

Dream Theater - Disappear

Why, tell me the reasons why
Try, still I don't understand
Will I ever feel this again?
Blue sky, I'll meet you in the end
Free them, free the memories of you
Free me and rest 'til I'm with you

A day like today
My whole world has been changed
Nothing you say
Will help ease my pain

Turn, I'll turn this slowly 'round
Burn, burn to feel alive again
She, she'd want me to move on
See me, this place I still belong
Give chase to find more than I have found
And face this time now on my own

Days disappear
And my world keeps changing
I feel you here
And it keeps me sane

So I'm moving on
I'll never forget
As you lay there and watched me
Accepting the end
I knew you were scared
You were strong, I was trying
I gave you my hand
I said it's okay, letting go, time to leave here
And I'll carry on
The best that I can without you here beside me
Let Him come take you home

The Smashing Pumpkins - Behold! The Nightmare

I've faced the fathoms in your deep
withstood the suitors quiet siege
pulled down the heavens just to please you
appease you
the wind blows and I know

I can't go on, digging roses from you grave
to linger on, beyond the beyond
where the willows weep
and whirlpools sleep, you'll find me
the coarse tide reflects sky

and the night mare rides on, and the night mare rides on
with a december black psalm
and the night mare rides on
what i fear is lost here
the wind blows and I know

all you have to do is run away
and steal yourself from me
become a mystery to gaze into
you're so cruel in all you do
but still I believe, I believe in you

so may you come with your own knives
you'll never take me alive
with all the force of what is true
is there nothing I can do?

I can't go on, digging roses from you grave
to linger on, beyond the beyond
where the willows weep
and whirlpools sleep, you'll find me

and the night mare rides on, and the night mare rides on
with a december black psalm
and the night mare rides on

I've faced the fathoms in your deep
withstood the suitors quiet siege
pulled down the heavens just to please you
to hold the flower I can't keep

Esthero - Gone
(this one hit home)

Unhappy

this song used to really get to me, a dear friend sent it to me ages ago, it perfectly summed up our situation at the time because she now lives on the otherside of the world

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yELRb...elated&search=

Joy Enriquez - How can I not love you

Cannot touch, cannot hold, cannot be together
Cannot love, cannot kiss, cannot love each other
Must be strong and we must let go
Cannot say what our hearts must know

How can I not love you
What do I tell my heart
When do I not want you here in my arms
How does one waltz away
From all of the memories
How do I not miss you when you are gone

Cannot dream, cannot share sweet and tender moments
Cannot feel how we feel, must pretend its over
Must be brave and we must go on, must not say
What weve known all along

How can I not love you
What do I tell my heart
When do I not want you here in my arms
How does one waltz away
From all of the memories
How do I not miss you when you are gone

How can I not love you

Must be brave and we must be strong
Cannot say what weve known all along

How can I not love you
What do I tell my heart
When do I not want you here in my arms
How does one waltz away
From all of the memories
How do I not miss you when you are gone

How can I not love you
When you are gone


I also used to listen to Mad World on repeat when I was on a huge secondary school downer but I think everyone knows the lyrics to that by now, I have mixed feelings about "Hallelujah" sometimes I find it incredibly uplifting because it brings back memories of having all my friends around me singing it (well most of them) and my friend luke on guitar, and sometimes the verses that get me are

well maybe I've been here before
I've seen this room I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew ya
and I've seen your flag on the marble arch
and love is not a victory march
it's cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

well maybe there's a god above
but all I ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
and its not a cry you can hear at night
its not somebody who's seen the light
it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah


its just so piercing and chilling

My ex-fiance is an alchoholic bad. I loved him with all my heart but It wasn't meant to be.

Anyway, this song tugs at my heart everytime I play it.


"Joey" by Concrete Blonde

Joey, baby - dont get crazy
Detours. fences... I get defensive
I know youve heard it all before -
So I dont say it anymore
I just stand by and watch you
Fight your secret war.
Although I used to wonder why -
I used to cry till I was dry.
Still sometimes I get a strange pain
Inside
Oh, joey, if youre hurting so am i.

Joey, honey - I got some money
All is forgiven. listen, listen
And if I seem to be confused
I didnt mean to be with you.
And when you said I scared you,
Well I guess you scared me too.
But we got lucky once before
And if youre somewhere out there
Passed out on the floor.
Oh joey, Im not angry anymore

Here are three of the saddest songs from the rock-n-roll era - lyrics courtesy of my favorite lyric source, Leo's Lyrics (http://www.leoslyrics.com/):


Quote:
Last Kiss - J. Frank Wilson & The Cavaliers (1964)

Well, where oh where can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me.
She's gone to heaven, so I got to be good,
so I can see my baby when I leave this world.

We were out on a date in my daddy's car.
We hadn't driven very far.
There in the road, straight ahead ...
The car was stalled, the engine was dead.
I couldn't stop, so I swerved to the right.
Never forget the sound that night ...
The cryin' tires, the bustin' glass.
The painful scream that I heard last.

Well, where oh where can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me.
She's gone to heaven, so I got to be good,
so I can see my baby when I leave this world.

Well, when I woke up, the rain was pourin' down.
There were people standing all around.
Something warm running in my eyes,
but I found my baby somehow that night.
I raised her head, and when she smiled, and said,
"Hold me darling for a little while."
I held her close. I kissed her our last kiss.
I found the love that I knew I would miss.
But now she's gone, even though I hold her tight.
I lost my love ... my life, that night.

Well, where oh where can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me.
She's gone to heaven, so I got to be good,
so I can see my baby when I leave this world.

Quote:
Teen Angel - Mark Dinning (1959)

Teen angel, teen angel, teen angel, ooh, ooh

That fateful night the car was stalled upon the railroad track
I pulled you out and we were safe, but you went running back

CHORUS
Teen angel, can you hear me?
Teen angel, can you see me?
Are you somewhere up above
And I am still your own true love?

What was it you were looking for that took your life that night?
They said they found my high school ring clutched in your fingers tight

CHORUS

Just sweet sixteen, and now you're gone
They've taken you away.
I'll never kiss your lips again
They buried you today

CHORUS

Teen angel, teen angel, answer me, please

Quote:
Patches - Dickey Lee (1962)

Down by the river that flows by the coal yards.
Stands wooden houses with shutters torn down
There lives a girl everybody calls Patches
Patches my darling of Old Shanty town

We plan to marry when June brought the summer
I couldn't wait to make Patches my bride
Now I don't see how that ever can happen
My folks say No, and my heart breaks inside

Patches oh what can I do
I swear I'll always love you
But a girl from that place would just bring me disgrace
So my folks won't let me love you

Each night I cry as I think of that shanty
And pretty Patches there watching the door
She dosn't know that I can't come to see her
Patches must think that I love her no more

I hear a neighbor tellin my father
He said a girl name of Patches was found
Floating face down in that dirty old river
That flows by the coal yards in Old Shanty Town

Patches oh what can I do
I swear I'll always love you
It may not be right But I'll join you tonight

But since you've got Billy Bragg covered already, I'll post something from England's other great socialist folk-punk outfit, namely the Mekons:

LAST DANCE

The dance floor's nearly empty now
Everyone's gone home
We're fragmented and broken up
Like love affairs
And as if seeing you for the first time
Something whispered
Looking at you in desperation
Knowing nothing ever happens
I wanted to say fall in love
I wanted to say fall in love with me
I wanted to say fall in love
It'll be alright

So beautiful, you were waltzing
Little frozen rivers all covered with snow
All fragmented and broken up
Oh well I guess it's time to go

But as if seeing you for the first time
Something whispered
Looking at you in desperation
Knowing nothing ever happens
I wanted to say fall in love
I wanted to say fall in love with me
I wanted to say fall in love
It'll be alright

You were waltzing...

This is saddest song I've heard in a long time:

Vienna Teng - Passage

I died in a car crash two days ago
was unrecognizable
when they pulled me from the gears
no one's fault, no one's bottle
no one's teenage pride or throttle
our innocence is all the worse for fears
the other walked away alive
arms wrapped now around his wife

my lover sits, the silent eye
in a hurricane of warmth and word
my mother trembles with the sobs
whose absence seems absurd
my sister shouts to let her see
through the cloud of crowd surrounding me
my colleagues call for silence in my name

I died in a car crash three months ago
they burned me 'til I glowed
and crumbled to a fine gray sand
now I am nothing, everywhere
several breaths of strangers' air
and all thoughts ever written in my hand
they plant my tree out in the yard
it grows but takes the winter hard

my lover puts a knife to wrist
says tomorrow comes, hold on a while
my mother tosses in the sheets
and dreams me holding my own child
my sister plays our homemade tapes
laughs as tears stream down her face
my office door now bears a different name

I died in a car crash four years ago
my tree drinks melted snow
just eight feet tall a pale and fragile thing
bee stings beaches bright vacations
sunburnt high-school graduations
a sparrow healing from a broken wing
this year a glimpse of second chances
tiny apples on my tree's branches

my lover hears the open wind
and crawls blinking into the sun
my mother leafs through photographs
and thinks "yes she was a lovely one"
my sister can't decide her truth
asks aloud what I might do
in a conference hall my brief efforts engraved

I died in a car crash
a lifetime ago it seems
been a decade or two or three
they've just released a new design
bars and bags front and behind
my fate now an impossibility
safely packaged hurtling down
the highway hardly make a sound

my lover very much alive
arms wrapped now around his wife

Anyway, this song tugs at my heart everytime I play it.


"Joey" by Concrete Blonde

Joey, baby - dont get crazy
Detours. fences... I get defensive
I know youve heard it all before -
So I dont say it anymore
I just stand by and watch you
Fight your secret war.
Although I used to wonder why -
I used to cry till I was dry.
Still sometimes I get a strange pain
Inside
Oh, joey, if youre hurting so am i.

Joey, honey - I got some money
All is forgiven. listen, listen
And if I seem to be confused
I didnt mean to be with you.
And when you said I scared you,
Well I guess you scared me too.
But we got lucky once before
And if youre somewhere out there
Passed out on the floor.
Oh joey, Im not angry anymore
That song takes me back! I was a real mess then.

I don't know if this is a sad song or love song. But, it reminds me of someone who passed on. I will always love her and I want to cry just hearing it in my mind. It has been 23 yrs.

"Girl"- The Time

Girl, I called you up to say,
that I'm havin' trouble sleepin' ever since you went away.
Girl, I know you need a little time,
to get your head together. But baby, I can't stop cryin'.

(chorus)
Girl, why'd you go away?
What can I say to make you stay?
Girl, I was a fool.
I don't know what to do.
I'm still in love with you.

I'm still in love with you, baby.

Girl, I guess I was a fool,
to try to tie you down and make you play by the rules.
Girl, I guess I finally realized,
that keepin' you close to me, it would keep me alive.

(repeat chorus)

Don't know what I'm gonna do.

Girl, what can I say baby, to make you stay?
Girl, I don't know what to do. No I don't.
I'm still in love, still in love, still in love.

Girl, down on my knees. Oh baby, please.
Girl, oh baby, please. I'm still in love with you.

I'm still in love with you.

Called you up to say, Baby, I still love you.
I'm still in love, I'm still in love

I know longer own this. Tired of explaining.

Peace,
2P.
