    All American Rejects:

    Swing Swing

    One More Sad Song

    Time Stands Still

    Damn Girl


    Why Worry

    Straightjacket Feeling


    Matters of the Heart<-----Highly recommended, insanely sad. written by lead singer for his ex gf shortly after their breakup.

    here's the lyrics to matters of the heart

    To dispel any rumor,

    I should do this sooner than later,

    I had a girl and I didnt hate her,

    But I let her go

    I swear that Ive got problems,

    And she can never stop them from ending.

    My head is f*****ed,

    And Ive been pretending.

    Shes the one,

    How could I let it go on?

    You wanna hurt some one,

    Thats why I wrote you this song


    Kimberly, dont cry,

    Ill always be by your side.

    Yeah, Kimberly dont cry,

    A broken heart just takes time.

    Lets take it one step further,

    I never meant to hurt her so badly.

    We had a love and I can say madly,

    (Let her go)

    I couldnt let it go on.

    (Let her know)

    I put my soul in this song.


    Kimberly, dont cry,

    Ill always be by your side.

    Yeah, Kimberly dont cry,

    A broken heart just takes time.

    Yeah, I could shed, a thousand tears,

    But youd never see them falling.

    Yeah, I could walk a thousand years,

    But youd never see me crawling.

    Ive said it before,

    And Im saying it one time more.


    Kimberly, dont cry,

    Ill always be by your side.

    Yeah, Kimberly dont cry,

    A broken heart just takes time, just takes time.

    Kimberly dont, Kimberly dont, (Cry)

    Kimberly dont cry (Kimberly dont)

    Kimberly dont cry,

    A broken heart just takes time,

    Just takes time.

    hope that helps....

    Aww, that's sad, surely a happier song would be more appreciated?, anyway, sad songs.

    I Don't Love You - MCR

    Everyday I Love you Less and Less - Kaiser Chiefs

    Are good, but there's also two websites,

    One for sad ones like your asking for


    And one for songs about getting over boyfriends,
