Question Indie/punk/rock songs about losing a loved one?

My fiancé passed away from a heart attack several months ago.
Music really helps me cope, and I was hoping someone could help suggest some songs.
So far, these are the songs I’ve really liked:

•Promise Me by Badflower
•Missing You by Brand New
•Dark Paradise by Lana Del Rey

I prefer rock, emo, alternative, indie, or punk.

Hope this was ok to post here! ❤️

The Cure's "Faith" is largely inspired by the death of a family member

Just another marketing ploy

Are beehives and ant colonies unnatural? Cause they cooperate on a level we could hardly dream of.

Purple Mountains - I Loved Being My Mother's Son

Also: Mount Eerie - A Crow Looked At Me. The whole album.
A smell of petroleum prevails throughout.

Eels' Electro-shock Blues album is largely about losing loved ones, I love it a lot

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, but yeah I second Mount Eerie- A Crow Looked At Me. The album is heartbreaking, the loss of his wife and having to raise their child in her absence, I still cry listening to this album. Sufjan Stevens - Carrie and Lowell is also very helpful, though not about the loss of a wife, it's about the loss of his mother and takes a pretty honest look about death and loss.
