That's Okay by The Hush Sound Report Abuse
It doesn't have a particularly sad feel to it, but when I first heard it I cried. I feel like Greta Salpeter(the singer) is saying that person isn't loved and everyone just passes them on once someone else loves them and that once they die no one will talk about them or love them anymore. I was suicidal when I first listened to it and I felt exactly like that. That no one would care after I did it. That all of my 'friends' would just go on with their lives and never say anything about me.

Definetly The Streets of Heaven (By Sherrie Austin) Report Abuse
It's about a little girl who is 7 and she's fighting a terminal illness, and her mom is saying the words to God, she's telling him why he doesn't need her, its almost like she is confronting him. the lyrics from the 1st time I heard them made me cry, and then after seeing the video, that made me totally bawl. But the lyrics that make me choke up the most every time is when she says. "Well I don't know if your listening, but praying is all that's left to do, So I ask you Lord have mercy, You lost a son once too. I don't think there is a person out there that it won't bring tears to their eyes.

If you have ever thought of suicide, or are truly depressed, these songs seem to be reason for depression.. It truly does. Only songs that ever relates to me. two of the deepest songs. if you listen to "before the great collapse", it was his actual suicide note he wrote to his mom. Then he wrote another one saying that he wants to live. Its called "razorblade salvation". 3 of the deepest songs ever.
