View Full Version : Depressing song lyrics...
11-18-2009, 01:24 AM
I guess the thread title speaks for itself. I'm sure we've all listened to songs with lyrics that are just... sad. It could be just one line or the entire chorus. Let's see how maudlin this thread can get.
I'll start with something simple (nothing too heavy for an appetiser):
"Now I wait by the phone, in the dark, drunk on hope..." - Rascal Flatts, Once

"I don't want to know it's over, so save your goodbye kiss! I don't want to know it's over because ignorance is bliss! Now, I know I can't stay sober because you left me hear like this!"- Hinder ("Bliss")

This is the lines which i like as it is too sad and listen to this line very much.
They say love is just a game
They say time can heal the pain
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
And I guess I'm just a fool
I keep holding on to you

"Loneliness is always looking for a friend
It found me once and it has been around since then
Loneliness is never waiting by the door
It sweeps right through and it will never be ignored
Why, why was I chosen?
Why am I left without?"
- Westlife ("Loneliness knows me by name")

There ain't no drug to make me well.
There ain't no drug,
There ain't no drug,
It's not enough.
The sickness is myself!"

"Doctor, Doctor, won't you please perscribe me something? A day in the life of someone else? Because I'm a hazard to myself. Don't let me get me. I'm my own worst enemy. I don't want to be my friend no more. I want to be somebody else."- Pink

"You'd think that I'd learn my lesson by now
You'd think that I'd somehow figure out
That if you strike that match
You're bound to feel the flames
You'd think that I'd learn the cost of love
And paid that price long enough
But still I drive myself right through the pain
Yeah, well it turns out
I haven't learned a thing"
-- Chris Daughtry (Learn My Lesson)

"When your only friends are hotel rooms
Hands are distant lullabyes.
If I could turn around, I would tonight.
These roads never seemed so long
Since your paper heart stopped beating
Leaving me suddenly alone."
-Paperthin Hymn, Anberlin
"Got a cricket for a conscience always looks the other way
A cocaine soul starts seeming like an empty cabaret
Hey, where have all the dancers gone? Now the music doesn't play
Tried to listen to the river but you couldn't shut your mouth
Better take a little time to level out"
If The Brakeman Turns My Way, Bright Eyes.
I love depressing lyrics, so much more emotion wrapped up in them.

Well I wish I could kill you,
savor the sight.
Get in to my car, drive into the night.
Then lie as I scream to the heavens above.
That I was the last one you ever loved.
Yes, your skin is like porcelain.
Porcelain, Better Than Ezra
My song of the moment.

"How the hell did we wind up like this? Why weren't we able to see the signs that we missed and try to turn the tables? I wish you'd unclench your fist and unpack your suitcase. Lately, there's been too much of this, but don't think it's too late. Nothing's wrong just as you know that someday I will.."- "Someday" by Nickelback

"If it doesn't break your heart, it isn't love.
Yeah, if it doesn't break your heart, it's not enough.
It's when you're breaking down,
With your insides coming out,
It's when you find out what your heart is made of."
- Yet, by Switchfoot.

My shadows the only thing that walks beside me, its heart the only thing thats beating.

"And they can see no reasons because there are no reasons. What reasons do you need to die! Die! Ugh! Ugh! I don't like Monday's! (Tell me why!) I don't like Monday's! (Tell me why!) I don't like Monday's! I wanna shoot... shoot... the whole day down."- "I Don't Like Mondays" by The Boomtown Rats
