I liked this post on Mark Brown's blog:
"Pick the six saddest songs you can think of, list the titles, and pick what you think is the saddest line from each."
Here are my 6:
1. Eleanor Rigby by The Beatles:
Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name. Nobody came.
2. November Rain by Guns N Roses:
We've been through this such a long long time. Just tryin' to kill the pain.
3. Ringfinger by Nine Inch Nails:
You just left me nailed here.
Hanging like Jesus on the cross.
Ill be dying for your sins.
And aiding to the cause.
4. Cat's in the Cradle by Harry Chapin:
I've long since retired, my son's moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind"
He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I can find the time
You see my new job's a hassle and kids have the flu
But it's sure nice talking to you, Dad
It's been sure nice talking to you
5. Luka by Suzanne Vega:
Maybe its because Im crazy
I try not to act too proud
They only hit until you cry
And after that you dont ask why
6. Please, Daddy, Don't Get Drunk This Christmas by John Denver:
Please, Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't wanna see my Momma cry
The warm before the storm.
