    I'm not sure if you'll find all of these depressing or not, but nevertheless. They're not in any particular order, and I tried to find ones focusing on different topics, from death to unrequited love to breakups etc. Hopefully some of them fit what you're looking for

    Say Goodnight (acoustic) - BFMV (I honestly personally prefer the original version of the song, but it may be a bit too heavy on the instrumentals for your tastes)

    My personal favorite is the Wolves by Bon Iver.

    Also, not sure if you'll like it but Misery by Gallows is great.
