Sad songs are the best things ever, they are the biggest comfort when were sad they comfort us because we know someone else is wen't through the same thing we are. They are better than words. They don't necessarily have to be the best artists, they just have to have the right tempo and the right lyrics and bam, they have us addicted.
Here are the songs I listen to when I feel the need:
The River- Bruce Springsteen
about family problems and marriage. all the things we wish life was but isn't.
Heaven Forbid- The Fray
comfort to a friend, about how if you're alone not to worry because everything will be alright.
Blackbird- Sarah McLachlan
about getting up and feeling better, and seizing the moment. really uplifting, it will help you feel better, trust me.
Gravity- Sara Bareilles
about trying to get over that person. and how you just can't seem to stop thinking about them. no matter what you try they are always on your mind. how you always want to be with them but just can't.
What Hurts the Most- Rascal Flatts
about being so close to that person, and having it all go away. not understanding why and how it happened so fast. And not knowing what could of happened if you stayed together. the regret.
Happiness- The Fray
again being so close to being happy, but then having it taken away so fast, and not realizing the greatness when you had it with you.
Goodbye- Miley Cyrus (yeah i know. ew.)
alright. i know she sucks. but the lyrics to this song are just so accurate. they describe the way you feel after the end of a relationship. if you close your eyes and try to ignore her voice and just listen to the lyrics you will understand.
One Sweet Love- Sara Bareilles
about how you feel a lost one is still with you, and the love you feel for them. also feeling time was taken from you with this person. regretting if this was the only chance you had.
Thinking of You- Katy Perry
about how you feel when your still in love with someone else. enough explained.
How to Save a Life- The Fray
about losing someone and feeling you can't do anything about it. not understanding how you lost them and feeling like they need you, but you can't do anything about it.
Tears in Heaven- Eric Clapton
feeling like you don't deserve or belong somewhere. or that someone was just too good for you, but you love them and miss them all the same.
Fix You- Coldplay
feeling your so in love you can't control it. losing the person and never being able to love them again. this song is all about the terribleness of love, and how everything will turn out fine in the end. lights will guide you home.
When the Stars Go Blue- Ryan Adams
about being in love, and feeling the lightness and beautifulness of the other person. and at the same time, not completely understanding them and wanting to always be there to comfort and love them.
Feel better I hope these songs helped. <3
