no one's mentioned Morphine yet, the song is "gone for good"

I'm never going back never going back to you

I'm never going to see you again

I'm never going to dig out your picture

I'm never going to look you up someday

Life is very short

You don't love me anymore

So I'm never going to see you again

I'm never going to write you a letter

Never going to call you on the phone

I'm never going to drive by your house

I'm never going to catch you coming outside

Never going to walk up your walk

And ring your bell

And feel you fall into my arms

I'm never going to see you (x2)

I'm never going to see you again

Your gone for good

listen to the song, it makes the lyrics much more powerful

Here's a song that's pretty sad, it goes something like this:

It's the sad song

I'll ever write for you

It's the sad song when I tell you

Just how much I really care

It's the sad song...

Wait a minute, that should be Last Song, not sad song.

Nevermind.

But you gotta admit, this song is pretty sad and I hope it was his (Edward Bear) last song for real. ::

Did you know I'd go to sleep

And leave the lights on

Hopin' you'd come by

And know that I was home and still awake

But two years go by and still my lights on

This is hard for me to say

But this is all that I can say

It's the last song I'll ever write for you

It's the last time that I'll tell you

Just how much I really care

This is the last song I'll ever sing for you

You come looking for the light and it won't be there

But I love you, oh, yes I do, yes I do

All the times that I've spent waiting

Wondering where you are

Always knew the time would come

When I would start to wonder why

Now the time is here

I don't know where you are

So I'll write you one more song

But it's the last time that I'll try

It's the last song I'll ever write for you

It's the last time that I'll tell you

Just how much I really care

This is the last song I'll ever sing for you

You come looking for the light and it won't be there

But I love you, oh, yes I do, mmm mmm

It's the last song I'll ever write for you

It's the last song I'll ever write for you

It's the last song I'll ever write for you

It's the last song I'll ever write for you

It's the last song I'll ever write for you

Yes, yes, yes, and yes.

quiet heart - kent

kevlar soul - kent

Wow! You must be the only other person in a music messageboard other than me who's listed Kent! Indeed, they have recorded some fairly sad and depressing songs. I'd probably say that the whole Isola album is one sad opus emanating from Scandinavian weather. I can think of three songs off the top of me head: "Om Du Var Har," "Oproffesionell," "707" but the entire album keeps that consistent sound.

wicked game - chris isaak/HIM

Awesome! Lotta people mention this song although he's recorded other stuff that's up to par if not better than this one, it will always remain an all time classic from the 80s, of love songs, of sad songs, of favourite songs period.

I'm suprised not many have mentioned The Smiths :puppyeyes:

Funeral in the rain - Chris Isaak

Lie to me - Chris Isaak

Crying in the rain - AHA

There is this old song and I don't know who sings it, but it goes something like "do you think I would leave you dying, when there's room on my horse for two?" I actually get shivers thinking about it - it has to be the saddest song. It's about 2 friends that have known each other since childhood going to war and being on the battlefield, and the one is shot down and his buddy tries to save him. It draws the parellel bewteen them playing solders as children and then the one dying in front of the other in war. Man, that one gets me howling.... :(

I only discovered this site today, but a few sad songs are...

Asleep-The Smiths (i see it has been mentioned before)

I know its over-The Smiths

Heaven knows im miserable now-The Smiths

Back to the old house-The Smiths

Now my heart is full-Morrissey

Beautiful-Belle and Sebastian

There are other songs which are equally sad, cant be bothered to name them though! All of the above are actually really good songs, as well as being sad. Songs which are sad but crap include "Leper" by New End Original (i think).
