I Need Some Sad Love Songs

"Nothing Compare 2 U" - Sinead O'Connor (1990) Excellent cover (of an older song admittedly) and a very sad plea for someone to return and to keep a relationship together.

Beck's entire Sea Change (2002) album is full of lovely pensive breakup songs some highlights include:

"End of the Day"

I've seen the end of the day come too late

I've seen the love you had turning into hate

I had to act like I didnt even care

but I did so I got stranded standing there

standing there

"Guess I'm Doing Fine"

There’s a blue bird at my window

I can’t hear the songs he sings

All the jewels in heaven

They don’t look the same to me

I just wade the tides that turned

Till I learn to leave the past behind

It’s only lies that I’m living

It’s only tears that I’m crying

It’s only you that I’m losing

Guess I’m doing fine

"On Your Own" - The Verve

Tell me what you seen

Was it a dream?

Was I in it?

Life seems so obscene

Until it's over

Who knows?

All I want is someone who can fill the hole

In the life I know

In between life and death

When there's nothing left

Do you wanna know?

Keane has a few:

"She Has No Time"

Well think about the lonely people

And think about the day she found you

Or lie to yourself

And see it all dissolve around you

She says she has no time for you now

"We Might As Well Be Strangers"

I don't know your thoughts these days

We're strangers in an empty space

I don't understand your heart

It's easier to be apart

We might as well be strangers in another town

We might as well be living in another time

Also, one of my favourite songs from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs "Maps"

Wait, they don't love you like I love you

I'd Rather Go Blind

Etta James

Something told me it was over

When I saw you and her talkin'

Something deep down in my soul said, 'Cry, girl'

When I saw you and that girl walkin' around

Whoo, I would rather, I would rather go blind, boy

Then to see you walk away from me, child, no

Whoo, so you see, I love you so much

That I don't wanna watch you leave me, baby

Most of all, I just don't, I just don't wanna be free, no

Whoo, whoo, I was just, I was just, I was just

Sittin here thinkin', of your kiss and your warm embrace, yeah

When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips now, baby

Revealed the tears that was on my face, yeah

Whoo and baby, baby, I'd rather, I'd rather be blind, boy

Then to see you walk away, see you walk away from me, yeah

Whoo, baby, baby, baby, I'd rather be blind...

"I'm Lost Without You" Blink 182

I swear that I can go on forever again

Please let me know that my one bad day will end

I will go down as your lover, your friend

Give me your lips and with one kiss we begin

Are you afraid of being alone

Cause I am, I'm lost without you

Are you afraid of leaving tonight

Cause I am, I'm lost without you

I'll leave my room open till sunrise for you

I'll keep my eyes patiently focused on you

Where are you now I can hear footsteps I'm dreaming

And if you will, keep me from waking to believe this

Are you afraid of being alone

Cause I am, I'm lost without you

Are you afraid of leaving tonight

Cause I am, I'm lost without you

Are you afraid of being alone

Cause I am, I'm lost without you

Are you afraid of leaving tonight

Cause I am, I'm lost without you

Are you afraid of being alone

Cause I am, I'm lost without you

Are you afraid of leaving tonight

Cause I am, I'm lost without you

I'm lost without you

I'm lost without you

I'm looking for some really sad love songs but I dont want any old ones(before 1990).

Or if you have any good songs for moving away from the one you love.

Thanks in advance

just as a reminder... ;)

how about Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground ~ The White Stripes

I didn't feel so bad 'til the sun went down

then I come home

no one to wrap my arms around

wrap my arms around

I've always found Eels' "Jeannie's Diary" to be quite poignant.

"Jeannie's Diary" - Eels

How does her world spin

Without me in her nest?

Could there really be such happiness?

Oh, she's got a dark side too

Even murderous

But i love that

Just like her

I don't have a chance at writing the book

I just wanna be a page

In jeannie's diary

One single page

In jeannie's diary

Yes i am intense

Maybe quite obsessed

Everything she does is curious

Oh, she's going to let me in

I just know it's so

Then again, who do i kid?

I don't have a chance at writing the book

I just wanna be a page

In jeannie's diary

One single page

In jeannie's diary

She could have anything she wants

So why not me?

She could have anything she dreams

Oh, to be one single page

One single page

In jeannie's diary

Heart Of The Matter ~ Don Henley

Very sad song, but I do love the lyrics to this one...

The Heart Of The Matter

Don Henley

I got the call today, I didn't wanna hear

But I knew that it would come

An old true friend of ours was talkin' on the phone

She said you found someone

And I thought of all the bad luck,

And the struggles we went through

And how I lost me and you lost you

What are these voices outside love's open door

Make us throw off our contentment

And beg for something more?

I'm learning to live without you now

But I miss you sometimes

The more I know, the less I understand

All the things I thought I knew, I'm learning again

I've been tryin' to get down to the Heart of the Matter

But my will gets weak

And my thoughts seem to scatter

But I think it's about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if, even if you don't love me anymore

These times are so uncertain

There's a yearning undefined

...People filled with rage

We all need a little tenderness

How can love survive in such a graceless age

The trust and self-assurance that can lead to happiness

They're the very things we kill, I guess

Pride and competition cannot fill these empty arms

And the work I put between us,

Doesn't keep me warm

I'm learning to live without you now

But I miss you, Baby

The more I know, the less I understand

All the things I thought I figured out, I have to learn again

I've been tryin' to get down to the Heart of the Matter

But everything changes

And my friends seem to scatter

But I think it's about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if, even if you don't love me anymore

There are people in your life who've come and gone

They let you down and hurt your pride

Better put it all behind you; life goes on

You keep carrin' that anger, it'll eat you inside

I've been tryin' to get down to the Heart of the Matter

But my will gets weak

And my thoughts seem to scatter

But I think it's about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if, even if you don't love me anymore

I've been tryin' to get down to the Heart of the Matter

Because the flesh will get weak

And the ashes will scatter

So I'm thinkin' about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if, even if you don't love me anymore
