* "I May Not Awaken" by Music/{{Enya}}, [[TearJerker arguably one of her saddest songs]], has a suicidal narrator. [[DownerEnding It's highly implied that she ends up going through with it.]]
** Just to twist the knife even more, the song's lyrics are laden in symbolism...except one little bit at the end of the bridge. Once you make the connection from "ends all" to "ending it all", the song starts to make a whole lot more sense...and it doesn't get any happier.

* The RockOpera "2112" by {{Rush}} (specifically Part VI: Soliloquy). The protagonist, overwhelmed with despair that life under the repressive Solar Federation can never be anything like the visions of The Elder Race of Man from his dreams, takes his own life... whereupon the Elder Race appears and overthrows the Federation (according to WordOfGod).

* The video for BrunoMars' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SR6iYWJxHqs Grenade]] starts with a guy who takes trouble dragging a piano to his girlfriend's house to perform a song for her, only to find out [[YourCheatingHeart she's been cheating on him]]. So the guy decides to take his piano and perform elsewhere... [[RailroadTracksOfDoom the railroads]].

* Bullet by Music/HollywoodUndead is one of the most [[LyricalDissonance deceptively peppy]] songs about someone attempting suicide.

to:

* Music/Blink182's "Adam's Song" is from the POV of someone who feels suicidal. Despite {{Urban Legend|Of Zelda}}, it wasn't based on an actual suicide letter. It was written about how being on tour feels.
* Music/GoodCharlotte's "Hold On" is a suicide prevention song.

-->I -->''I was truly thinking of how I might quit waking up''



* Most people miss it due to the fact [[ChorusOnlySong they can't remember anything but the chorus]] and the [[LyricalDissonance peppy beat]], but "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five is a MoralityBallad. It's about growing up a poor black person in the city. The chorus refers to someone either being close to snapping or killing themselves. Near the end it describes a man born in the ghetto who grew up wanting to be like criminals and panhandlers because they had all the money. He dropped out of high school, tried to rob someone, got caught and was given eight years in jail. After two years of abuse he ended up hanging himself in his cell.

-->''When I said "good morning" I was lying\\
I was truly thinking of how I might quit waking up\\
He pointed out how selfish it would be to kill myself\\
So I keep waking up''

* Music/LinkinPark 's "One More Light" could be interpreted as the singer talking his friend out of suicide. It becomes [[HarsherInHindsight heartwrenching]] in light of the deaths of [[Music/{{Soundgarden}} Chris Cornell]] and Chester Bennington; this was the title track of the latter's last album before his own suicide in 2017.
* The subject of Logic, Khalid, and Alessia Cara's "1-800-273-8255". It features two characters- someone who feels like their life is worthless and is about to end it, and the friend who successfully talks them out of it. The title itself is the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, and WordOfGod says it's about a fictional call to the hotline.
