    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.

    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.

    Breakup Songs

    There is music for every occasion and mood, but the most indispensable of all is the breakup song. For all those times when the inexpressible pain of loss, regret and brokenness needs to be let out. Like talking to a friend who understands, the breakup song is there for you, with...

    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...

    The script - For the first time.

    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 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.

    Someone died. Gunshot,

    right outside. Your father, he is dead. I see him in my head. Childhood's end. Goodbye, my holy friend. Love me, it's a sin. Can you see me caving in? Weighing down, weighing down, weighing down. Weighing down, weighing down, weighing down. It's weighing down, weighing down...

    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...

    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...
