Top Ten Sad Songs for When You're Sad

Updated on January 31, 2018

1.The A Team - Ed Sheeran

The A-Team by Ed Sheeran. This song explores the struggles of one woman who appears to be in the A-Team. When you listen to the song it gives us the impression that this said woman is struggling with her life. We can also conclude that the woman is addicted to cocaine and selling herself off to strange men for money and cocaine. The song paints a picture that it is winter outside. It shows the sad reality of how often this actually happens and sometimes it goes unnoticed.

2. Saving Amy - Brantley Gilbert

Saving Amy is a dark haunting story of a young man that proposed to a girl and she said yes. Then the lyrics “When I promised her forever before I took her home, but I never made it home that night” Is where we learn that sadly the young man dies in what we can assume to be a traffic crash. He then goes on to sing that when her time has finally come they will be reunited at the gates of Heaven and he will walk her through them presumably to spend the rest of their eternal lives together

3. Gone - Bebe Rexha

This song is sad in the way of Bebe singing how someone had left her and now she doesn’t feel right that the said person is gone. This song is definitely the song for you if you’re going through a break-up or heartbreak.

4. Merry Go Round - Machine Gun Kelly

From the title the song sounds like an awesome summer song, but oh no. We start off with two young lovers, they run away where the boy introduced heroin to the girl. As the song progresses we learn that “Bobby” went into the war and the girl has been sleeping around and selling everything to buy more heroin. Then we learn that the girl is pregnant. Well, Bobby is coming home and little does he know the girl and the baby have sadly passed away due to an overdose of some type of pills.

5. You Found Me - The Fray

This song hits you in the feels if you have been going through some kinda tragedy or being let down many many times. The music video is truly haunting as it touches on the subject of death and more heartbreak

6. Something to Remind You - Staind

This song is truly a tear jerker. This haunting melody touches on the topic of suicide or death. From what we can gather the person is singing about him leaving this earth and leaving something for his family and friends to remind them of him when he’s gone. As he sings about when he’s gone we can’t help but wonder what his motive was for him leaving this earth.

7. Stone Cold - Demi Lovato

As Demi speaks of a break-up and trying to move on she wishes nothing more than to be stone cold. As she tells her ex she’s happy for him for moving on and finding someone else we can’t help but remember how it felt when some of us broke up with someone and had to watch them be with someone else as we wish nothing more than to be stone cold.

8. You Promised - Brantley Gilbert

Brantley Gilbert made this list again with another marriage proposal, but this time the man doesn’t die. It starts off with the couple yelling at each other in the rain. We can gather that the boy is leaving while the girl begs him not to leave saying the ring she wore meant forever. He then returns some of her things and gives her a note that she was supposed to read on their wedding night where she then says they would never work. Then we get back to him saying the words she said in the first fight.

9. I’m Gonna Show You Crazy - Bebe Rexha

The beginning of the video is sad as her family acts happy for everyone else but her. She explains it as a war in her head and she wishes she was dead. As the chorus comes in it results in telling us that she won’t take any more pills to be normal and she’s going to show her true self. This is a song we can all relate to in some way as in being sick of being normal.

10. 1-800-273-8255 - Logic ft. Alessia Cara, Khalid

With subjects such as suicide in this song, it’s a good listen. The character in this feels like his life isn’t his and he doesn’t want to be alive. As Alessia’s part comes in it names all the beautiful things in life such as feeling your lovers heartbeat and seeing light in the darkest things. They then sing that they know where you’ve been and you can beat it and you have so much more to live for. The tone changes from “I don’t wanna be alive” to “I don’t wanna die”.

If you are considering harming yourself, others, or thinking about suicide please call the suicide hotline. They are a FREE 24/7 service and you can remain anonymous. The number is #1-800-273-8255.
