    all too often, about love,

    about the wrongs and sins I've committed, and about my own inhuman nature that seems to be a constant reminder of how I don't really belong in this 'civilization'. but instead of feeling sorrow I feel a sense of minor relief especially now that I know that my pain and suffering...

    Justin Nozuka - Save Him

    Now, THAT is a depressing song... "Save Him" [Verse 1] She loves him more He loves her more, Seems like they won't ever let each other go, Laughing and kissing it's a match made in heaven Behind the rings on their fingers Imprints the ink deep in the inner That has stained...

    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...

    Sad Songs And Depressive Bands...

    I just can't stop listening to depressive songs. For example, Anathema's songs, of course after the doom metal phase are extremely depressive and sad. I went to their concert once and all I could do was cry because they all touch our feelings very deeply. Another one, Radiohead...

    Cutting Crew - (I just) Died in your arms

    It's What I Know

    I think most of the music I listen to is pretty sad. My favourite songs are normally messed up love songs and the like. I have never really been a happy person, and I think listenening to sad songs has been a way of relating and expressing. It doesn't really bother me, sad songs...

    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.

    Back to December by Taylor Swift This song

    tears me up. I close my eyes and remember the day Avery left me. Is it too much to want her to come back to me? To anybody that wants to tell me they are so sorry and how much they care do me one thing first. Listen to this song and put yourself in my shoes for 4 mins and 54...

    This is pathetic. I won't do this to myself.

    Sad songs will only make you feel worse. But it's OK if you love being miserable.
