What's the saddest song you've heard?

I need songs that are about people leaving each other and not going to see each other again, but other sad songs are welcome. I'm thinking vocals and a piano and not much else, or maybe one of those sad rap songs?
Thanks!

You can't go wrong with A7X - so far away. this is the saddest song i have ever heard and i won't forget the first time i listened to it where i cried so hard. the music video makes it even sadder ( after half of the video, you will realise what i am talking about).

Back in my embarrassingly edgy days, I knew one song called Falling Inside The Black or something, by Skillet. It's not in either of the aforementioned categories, though...

Anathema's One last goodbye I always found pretty heart-wrenching. Song written after the singer and guitarist's mother passed away. Didnd't expect I'd be bawling away when I saw them do it last month.



I love the more acoustic version as well (I always loved Danny's voice just as much if not more than Vincent's on the original, he wrote the lyrics so maybe why. Unfortunately the version from the live album isn't on youtube I think this is a fan recording from the same show though:

Tears In Heaven by Eric Clapton is pretty devastating when you know who it is written about.

Also pretty much all DSBM:

A really sad song for me (because growing up sucks) is Ben Fold's Still fighting it and it's mostly piano/acoustic guitar.
