A person commits suicide to demonstrate their love.

Suggested by SaintMark.

Música | Inglês 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.

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.

Traduções:  Turco Espanhol

The singer has nothing left and feels like suicide is the only thing they can do. Feelings of low self-esteem and despair.

Suggested by Zarina01.

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.

Talks about a man committing suicide by hanging himself. The song is also connected to the author's suicide: this was his last song.

Suggested by Andreven.

I don't like when the lyrics aren't sung in first person and instead talk about someone else's suicide, but the point of view here is different and underlines how people know so little about each other, often being upset and shocked after discovering about the suicide of the most normal person.

Suggested by maluca.

Same as above, but with something more: here the characters are a poor man and a rich man, but the one who's seriously suffering is the latter, while the poor one wishes to be rich in order to be happy. A confirmation of the classic "money don't buy happiness".

(the author actually killed himself after publishing the album of which this is the last song).
