    Cutting Crew - (I just) Died in your arms

    tonight This song is torture for me. I yearn so badly to feel the passion and exhilaration of being with someone you cherish dearly during the most intimate and vulnerable of times. I don't get to feel that way anymore, and I just feel hollow and broken as a result. Each time I...

    This song reminds me of Aoba,

    the character I'm dating in an on-going roleplay with my best friend. It's sad because I keep thinking about how I'm cheating and lying to him. He doesn't deserve any of that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZLrt5v3Wn8 It's "Waste My Time" by Saint Asonia.

    And All That Could Have Been - Nine Inch Nails

    I believe in torturing myself with sad songs. I feed the sadness as much as I can and feel it to the highest extent I can, I savor it and experience it fully... then I move on. I believe that all emotions should be experienced to the fullest. One of my favorite sad songs to...

    I Must Like It

    Cloud Cult makes me miserable and Cursive makes me feel hysterically sad. But they are two of my favorite artists, whose music I play often. There's something about pain in music that really affects me.

    Maybe it is not a really sad song, but for me it is. It reminds me of a person that I lost. A person that I lied to, but she still loved me. If I wouldn't have met this person, I wouldn't be here today. But now I know that we can't do anything about it. We both changed in bad...

    I just love sad songs.

    There's just too much emotion in them to the point that I am physically in pain just hearing them. They pierce through my soul, straight to my heart. Sad songs are beautiful.
