* An absolutely '''[[{{Tearjerker}} heartbreaking]]''' example in Alec Benjamin's "I Built a Friend". The suicide victim is a ''robot'' who feels so abandoned when his creator/friend leaves for college that he spills water on himself, even leaving a note. Wow.

* 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 death of Chester Bennington; this was the title track of his last album before his own suicide in 2017.

* Music/SimonAndGarfunkle did a version of the ''Richard Cory'' (detailed in Literature) where the eponymous millionaire's story is told from the viewpoint of a factory worker, who is envious of the advantages and enjoyments available to Cory, believing his employer to be a happy and satisfied man. When this is proven wrong by Cory's suicide, the worker still curses his own poverty, and would still rather have Cory's life.

* "Devils Don't Fly" by Music/NataliaKills has the narrator in the middle of an attempt apparently brought on by a combination of self-loathing and a bad breakup.
-->''I heard the angels call again\\
I threw myself a party, chardonnay and oxy. [...]\\
They say it's not the answer, but I can't carry on,\\
'Cos I've got nowhere, no one, without you, boy, I'm done,\\
And when I'm gone, remember you're the one.
