    The only song that makes me cry EVERY SINGLE TIME is Let It Loose by the Rolling Stones. This melody! Oh my good, I'd die for this song!
    Another song that makes tears coming to my eyes most of the time is also a song by the Stones and its called Memory Motel.
    And Keith Richard's Hate It When You Leave tears me up pretty much, too.

    And an utterly depressing and sad song is Tom Wait's Tom Traubert's Blues (Waltzing Mathilda)! This song is SO beautiful (actually, I like Rod Stewart's version more, but anyway, both versions make me feel sad.)

    Waltzing Matilda
    Wasted and wounded
    And it aint what the moon did
    I got what I paid for now
    See you tomorrow
    Hey Frank can I borrow
    A couple of bucks from you
    To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
    Youll go waltzing Matilda with me

    Im an innocent victim
    of a blinded alley
    And Im tired of all these soldiers here
    No-one speaks English
    And everythings broken
    And my strength is soaking away
    To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
    Youll go a waltzing Matilda with me

    Now Ive lost my St. Christopher
    Now that I kissed her
    And the one-arm bandit knows
    And the maverick Chinaman
    with the cold-blooded sigh
    And the girls down by the striptease shows go
    Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
    Youll go a waltzing Matilda with me

    No I dont want your sympathy
    Fugitives say
    that the streets arent for dreaming now
    Manslaughter dragnet
    and the ghost that sells memories
    Want a piece of the action anyhow
    Go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
    Youll go waltzing Matilda with me

    And its a battered old suitcase
    in a hotel someplace
    And a wound that would never heal
    No prima donnas the perfume is on
    and old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey
    And goodnight to the street-sweepers,
    The night watchmen flame-keepers
    And goodnight Matilda too
    Goodnight Matilda too.

    Let It Loose (Rolling Stones)
    Who'ss that woman on your arm?
    All dressed up to do you harm
    And Im hip to what shell do,
    give her just about a month or two.

    Bit off more than I can chew
    and I knew what it was leading to,
    Some things, well, I cant refuse,
    One of them, one of them the bedroom blues.

    She delivers right on time,
    I cant resist a corny line,
    But take the shine right off you shoes,
    Carryin, carryin the bedroom blues.
    Oo...

    In the bar you're getting drunk,
    ain't in love, ain't in luck.
    Hide the switch and shut the light,
    let it all come down tonight.

    Maybe your friends think Im just a stranger,
    Some face you'll never see no more.

    Let it all come down tonight.
    Keep those tears hid out of sight,
    let it loose, let it all come down.

    He was a friend of mine - Willie Nelson
    Cody - Mogwai

    And it's probably a cliche but Knocking on heaven's door. Everytime I think of all those soldiers in Vietnam dying alone and longing for their mother, it just tears me to pieces. :cry:

    I rarely ever cry and I dont usually pay attention to lyrics but the ONE song I have a soft spot for is Flightless Bird, American Mouth by Iron & Wine.

    Bjork's "I've Seen It All" makes me sad because I remember that scene in Dancer in the Dark.

    love this song. makes me sad too :( it might also have to do with it being used on the series finale of Six Feet Under. youtube it, it will bring a tear to your eyes (esp. if you've seen the show)

    Downtown by Tegan and Sara, it just makes me really nostalgic and to top it off, it's a sad song.

    Cold Desert by Kings of Leon
