Tear Jerker / Britney Spears

Go To

This pop singer has some rather emotional songs.

Music related - Sad:

  • "Everytime". May be, in fact, the ultimate loss of love song ever.
    At night I pray
    That soon your face
    Will fade away
  • "He About To Lose Me".
    I'm Touching hands with someone seriously beautiful
  • "Out From Under" is also very much a tearjerker, especially when you put it into the context of her divorce with Kevin Federline and all of the trouble she went through as a result of it.
    "I don't wanna dream about
    All the things that never were
    And maybe I can live without
    When I'm out from under
    I don't wanna feel the pain
    What good would it do me now?
    I'll get it all figured out
    When I'm out from under"

  • "I Run Away"
    maybe when time goes by, I'll understand
  • Where Are You Now.
    I can hear your voice, The ring of yesterday
    It seems so close to me, But yet so far away
  • And "Shadow" in a similar way to "Where Are You Now"
    You give a little, not a lot
    It could be love, until we kissed
    You're all I want, but not, like, this.
  • "Lucky". Just..."Lucky".
    She's so lucky, she's a star
    But she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart, thinking
    "If there's nothing missing in my life,
    Then why do these tears come at night?"
    • Speaking of "Lucky", there's the video where we follow the famous actress through a day in her life and see that, despite all she has, she is truly empty. The video ends with the actress crying herself to sleep with the knowledge she has to get up the next day and do it all again. Even sadder now coupled with Harsher in Hindsight.
  • "Perfume" about a boyfriend maybe cheating
    I Hate myself and I feel crazy
    Such a classic tale
  • The appropriately titled "From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart".
  • Advertisement:
  • "Til It's Gone" about the end of a relationship
    I try every night to turn the page, and they try to confine me to a cage
  • and "Don't Cry". Comforting the X in song.
    This is our last goodbye, our love is gone but I'll survive
  • The appropriately titled "From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart".
