A person commits suicide to demonstrate their love.

Suggested by SaintMark.

Canzone | Inglese Nirvana

The genre played by Nirvana (and Linkin Park, above) is prolific for songs with similar topics. Here the suicide topic is a bit subtle. Nevertheless, the song is the last one ever recorded by Nirvana before Kurt's suicide and reflects his pain (to which he surrenders), not only through the lyrics, but also through his singing.

Suggested by SaintMark.

The topic of suicide here is slightly different. I don't want to include songs about someone else's suicide in this collection, however, this is a poetic prayer about suicidal people. Not only about them: the song is full of hope for a world in which people wouldn't feel like committing suicide anymore and for this reason, I feel like it deserves a place here.

Suggested by Hampsicora.

A man throws himself into a well after having learnt about his beloved's death.

Suicidal thoughts. Desire of peace, attainable only through death.

Traduzioni:  Turco Spagnolo

In times of despair, the singer seeks for help, but he doesn't want to hurt his loved ones. The suicide (possibly by drowning) is caused by this inability for the others to help him, he feels isolated and, thus, he isolates himself even more.
