Saddest Heavy Metal Songs That’ll Muck With Your Emotions

We asked our Facebook Following to name the saddest heavy metal songs they could think of, this is what they came up with.

We love all the saddest heavy metal songs mentioned and wouldn’t dare try ranking the ten, so we just listed them by date of release.

Black Sabbath · Solitude

Album · “Master Of Reality” · 1971

 

My name—it means nothing.
My fortune is less.
My future is shrouded
In dark wilderness.

Sunshine is far away.
Clouds linger on.
Everything I possessed—
Now they are gone.
They are gone.
They are gone.

Oh, where can I go to
And what can I do?
Nothing can please me.
Only thoughts are of you.

You just laughed
When I begged you to stay.
I’ve not stopped crying
Since you went away.
You went away.
You went away.

The world is a lonely place.
You’re on your own.
Guess I will go home,
Sit down and moan.

Crying and thinking
Is all that I do.
Memories I have
Remind me of you.
Of you.
Of you.

Solitude (2014 Remaster)

 

Black Sabbath · Changes

Album · “Vol. 4” · 1972

 

I feel unhappy
I feel so sad
I lost the best friend
That I ever had

She was my woman
I loved her so
But it’s too late now
I’ve let her go

I’m going through changes
I’m going through changes

We shared the years
We shared each day
In love together
We found a way

But soon the world
Had its evil way
My heart was blinded
Love went astray

I’m going through changes
I’m going through changes

It took so long
To realize
That I can still hear
Her last goodbyes

Now all my days
Are filled with tears
Wish I could go back
And change these years

I’m going through changes
I’m going through changes

Judas Priest · Here Come The Tears

Album · “Sin After Sin” · 1977

 

Once I dreamed that love would come and sweep me up away
Now it seems life’s passed me by, I’m still alone today
Here come the tears

Looks like it’ll always be the same
No one here to comfort me
Here come the tears

All alone, no one cares.
So much to give to you all out there.

Take me now, in your arms.
Let me rest, safe from harm.

Ohhh…. I want to be loved…
I need to be loved…
Won’t somebody love me….

(solo)

Here they come, here come the tears…
Here they come, here come the tears…
Here they come, here come the tears…
Here they come, here come the tears…
Here they come, here come the tears…
Here they come, here come the tears…
Here they come, here come the tears…
Here they come, here come the tears…

Here they come, here come the tears…
Here they come, here come the tears…

(repeat two more times in background)

Here come the tears…
Here come the tears…
Here come the tears…
Here come the tears…
Here come the tears, ohhh
Here come the tears, ohhh
Here come the tears

Judas Priest · Beyond The Realms Of Death

Album · “Stained Class” · 1978

 

He had enough
He couldn’t take anymore
He’d found a place
In his mind and slammed the door
No matter how they tried
They couldn’t understand
They washed and dressed him
Fed him by hand

Yeah! I’ve left the world behind
I’m safe here in my mind
Free to speak with my own kind
This is my life, this is my life
I’ll decide not you

Withdrawn he’d sit there
Stare blank into space
No sign of life
Would flicker on his face
Until one day he smiled
It seemed as though with pride
The wind kissed him
Goodbye -- and then he died

Yeah! I’ve left the world behind
I’m safe here in my mind
Free to speak with my own kind
This is my life, this is my life
I’ll decide not you

Keep the world with all its sin
It’s not fit for livin’ in
Yeah! I will start again
It can take forever, and ever, and ever
And ever, but I’ll still win.

How many like him,
Are there still
But to us, all
Seem to have lost the will
They lie in thousands
Plagued and lost
Is nothing worth this bitter cost

Yeah! I’ve left the world behind
I’m safe here in my mind
Free to speak with my own kind
This is my life, this is my life
I’ll decide not you

Keep the world with all its sin
It’s not fit for livin’ in

Beyond the realms of death

Ozzy Osbourne · Goodbye To Romance

Album · “Blizzard Of Ozz” · 1980

 

Yesterday has been and gone
Tomorrow will I find the sun
Or will it rain
Everybody’s having fun
Except me, I’m the lonely one
I live in shame

I say goodbye to romance, yeah
Goodbye to friends, I tell you
Goodbye to all the past
I guess that we’ll meet
We’ll meet in the end

I’ve been the king, I’ve been the clown
Now broken wings can’t hold me down
I’m free again
The jester with the broken crown
It won’t be me this time around
To love in vain

I say goodbye to romance, yeah
Goodbye to friends, I tell you
Goodbye to all the past
I guess that we’ll meet
We’ll meet in the end

And I feel the time is right
Although I know that you just might say to me
What’cha gonna do
What’cha gonna do
But I have to take this chance goodbye
To friends and to romance
And to all of you
And to all of you
Come on now

I say goodbye to romance, yeah
Goodbye to friends, I tell you
Goodbye to all the past
I guess that we’ll meet
We’ll meet in the end

And the weather’s looking fine
And I think the sun will shine again
And I feel I’ve cleared my mind
All the past is left behind again

I say goodbye to romance, yeah
Goodbye to friends, I tell you
Goodbye to all the past
I guess that we’ll meet
We’ll meet in the end

Goodbye to Romance

 

 

Metallica · Fade To Black

Album · “Ride The Lightning” · 1984

 

Life, it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters, no one else

I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can’t be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel

Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now he’s gone

No one but me can save myself, but it’s too late
Now I can’t think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye

Megadeth · In My Darkest Hour

Album · “So Far, So Good… So What!” · 1988

 

In my hour of need
Ha, no, you’re not there
And though I reached out for you
Wouldn’t lend a hand

Through the darkest hour
Your grace did not shine on me
Feels so cold, very cold
No one cares for me

Did you ever think I get lonely
Did you ever think that I needed love
Did you ever think, stop thinking
You’re the only one that I’m thinking of

You’ll never know how hard I tried
To find my space and satisfy you too

Things will be better when I’m dead and gone
Don’t try to understand, knowing you
I’m probably wrong

But oh how I lived my life for you
Till you’d turn away
Now, as I die for you
My flesh still crawls as I breathe your name
All these years, thought I was wrong
Now I know it was you
Raise your head, raise your face, your eyes
Tell me who you think you are, who?

I walk, I walk alone
To the promised land
There’s a better place for me
But it’s far, far away
Everlasting life for me
In a perfect world
But I gotta die first
Please God send me on my way

Time has a way of taking time
Loneliness is not only felt by fools
Alone I call to ease the pain
Yearning to be held by you, alone, so alone, I’m lost
Consumed by the pain
The pain, the pain, the pain
Won’t you hold me again
You just laughed, ha, ha, bitch

My whole life is work built on the past
The time has come when all things shall pass
This good thing passed away

In my darkest hour

Pantera · Cemetery Gates

Album · “Cowboys From Hell” · 1990

 

Reverend, reverend
Is this some conspiracy?
Crucified for no sins
An image beneath me
Lost within our plans for life
It all seems so unreal
I’m a man cut in half in this world
Left in my misery

Reverend. He turned to me
Without a tear in his eyes
Nothing new for him to see
I didn’t ask him why

I will remember
The love our souls had sworn to make
Now I watch the falling rain
All my mind can see
Now is your

Well, I guess
You took my youth
And gave it all away
Like the birth of a new-found joy
This love would end in rage

And when she died
I couldn’t cry
The pride was in my soul
You left me incomplete
All alone as the memories now unfold

Believe the word
I will unlock my door
And pass the cemetery gates

Sometimes when I’m alone
I wonder aloud
If you’re watching over me
Some place far abound

I must reverse my life
I can’t live in the past
Then set my soul free
Belong to me at last

Through all those complex years
I thought I was alone
I didn’t care to look around
And make this world my own

And when she died
I should’ve cried
And spared myself some pain
You left me incomplete
All alone as the memories still remain

The way we were
The chance to save my soul
And my concern is now in vain
Believe the word
I will unlock my door
And pass the cemetery gates

The way we were
The chance to save my soul
And my concern is now in vain
Believe the word
I will unlock my door
And pass the cemetery gates!
Gates! Gates!

Motörhead · 1916

Album · “1916” · 1991

 

16 years old when I went to the war,
To fight for a land fit for heroes,
God on my side, and a gun in my hand,
Chasing my days down to zero,
And I marched and I fought and I bled
And I died & I never did get any older,
But I knew at the time, That a year in the line,
Was a long enough life for a soldier,
We all volunteered,
And we wrote down our names,
And we added two years to our ages,
Eager for life and ahead of the game,
Ready for history’s pages,
And we brawled and we fought
And we whored ’til we stood,
Ten thousand shoulder to shoulder,
A thirst for the Hun,
We were food for the gun, and that’s
What you are when you’re soldiers,
I heard my friend cry,
And he sank to his knees, coughing blood
As he screamed for his mother
And I fell by his side,
And that’s how we died,
Clinging like kids to each other,
And I lay in the mud
And the guts and the blood,
And I wept as his body grew colder,
And I called for my mother
And she never came,
Though it wasn’t my fault
And I wasn’t to blame,
The day not half over
And ten thousand slain, and now
There’s nobody remembers our names
And that’s how it is for a soldier.

Metallica · One

Album · “…And Justice For All” · 1998

 

I can’t remember anything
Can’t tell if this is true or dream
Deep down inside I feel the scream
This terrible silence stops me

Now that the war is through with me
I’m waking up, I cannot see
That there’s not much left of me
Nothing is real but pain now

Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please, God, wake me

Back in the womb it’s much too real
In pumps life that I must feel
But can’t look forward to reveal
Look to the time when I’ll live

Fed through the tube that sticks in me
Just like a wartime novelty
Tied to machines that make me be
Cut this life off from me

Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please, God, wake me

Now the world is gone, I’m just one
Oh God, help me
Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please, God, help me

Darkness
Imprisoning me
All that I see
Absolute horror
I cannot live
I cannot die
Trapped in myself
Body my holding cell

Landmine
Has taken my sight
Taken my speech
Taken my hearing
Taken my arms
Taken my legs
Taken my soul
Left me with life in hell
