This may fit well for your particular situation:

Grapes of Wrath - All the Things I wasn't
Hours of hiding, spent apart
The wall was all we'd share
About the closest you could get
About all I would bear
Don't tell me all the things I wasn't
Could have made this big a difference
To all the things you are

Years of listening, taking in
To one day take away
From all the guilt and pity I could
Barely keep at bay
Don't tell me all the things I wasn't
Could have made this big a difference
To all the things you are

The time apart, I've realised
Remains the most we've shared
Unlike you there's no way
I could spend forever there
Don't tell me all the things I wasn't
Could have made this big a difference
To all the things you are


other 'sad' songs to choke up on:
Soothe - Smashing Pumpkins
Black - Pearl Jam
Suha - Xiu Xiu
After the Fall - Elvis Costello
I know - Fiona Apple
Fast Car - Tracy Chapman
Circle - Edie Brickell & the new Bohemians
All Mixed Up (cover) - Red House Painters
Stanley Kubrick - Mogwai (my boss calls it funeral music when I play it at work)
Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton
Nothing compares to you - Sinead O'Connor
Silent all these years - Tori Amos
What's love got to do with it - Tina Turner
My name is Luca - Suzanne Vega

Outkast - "Rosa Parks"

It's depressing because it reminds me exactly how un-funky I am.

Beck - Asshole
- Nobody's Fault But My Own


those are by far the two sadest beck songs. IMHO
