2Imagine - John Lennon
"Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one"
He is god of music, he can play any types of songs, his lyrics are so touchable and romantic with nostalgic feelings, some of the most popular songs are:

IN MY LIFE
ACROSS THE UNIVERSE

STAND BY ME
A DAY IN THE LIFE
YESTERDAY
And many more..
Hands off to late JOHN LENNON

3There's Never a Forever Thing - A-ha
Dearest...
Dry your eyes now, don't you cry
It's all right

Lie back...
Leave the light on
It's all right, dear

I'll be here through the night
With you till the first signs of light
Say the word and I'll come tonight

It's all right now
Don't you cry now

Hush...
Wipe your tears away
There's never a forever thing

All through the night
I'll try so hard to be there somehow
With you till the first signs of light
Say the word and I'll come tonight

Darling, don't you cry.
So deep and blue, what a perfect song. Always wanna cry when I hear this song. A-ha songs are full of magic and they have a living soul
Simply wonderful and touching. And the voice is the wing for the words. Unfortunately most people don't really listen to what the hear in a foreign language.

4Somewhere Only We Know - Keane
This song is the best in all over the world! I love it so much
Vote for Keane the best band!

KeaneTTR

Although this song can be interpreted in a million and one ways, the lyrics are absolutely amazing. They can represent so many different times during a life, which allows basically everyone to be able to relate to it.
This song remembering me about we life for god and if we dead, there we have the next life in heaven because we life in earth only a few years but in heaven we life forever..
"This can be the end of everything, So Why don't we go to Somewhere Only We Know"! Always trust the GOD!

5Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
"And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our souls
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all is one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll"

kheman1317

you gotta feel great with this lyrics, all the Robert Plant's feelings are there
it's stupid how the song was criticized of backmasking messages, as he said "Our turnables only play music forwards" and "This song was made with the best feeling"

rock2metal

This song is the heart and soul of every person I just love this son man it is the best song it should be first.

6Heal the World - Michael Jackson
"And The Dream We Were
Conceived In
Will Reveal A Joyful Face
And The World We
Once Believed In
Will Shine Again In Grace
Then Why Do We Keep
Strangling Life
Wound This Earth
Crucify Its Soul
Though It's Plain To See
This World Is Heavenly
Be God's Glow"

kheman1317

Every single word is so true and he sang it so beautifully. Even now, after listening it to for so long, this song still touches my heart with its lyrics. Totally unforgettable.
Heal the world, Make it a better place...
It's all about humanity, all about love. And when MJ is the singer, it become heavenly... Amazing song!

7Lose Yourself - Eminem
Listen to this before voting for all the other craps. Eminem is GOD!
well if it really 'bout lyrics you can't ignore this one eminem truly is a genius...
Definitely best song with lyrics it always pumps blood within my body truely ispirational song

8Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
SO overrated for this list. The song is kick ass, but its definitely not the lyrics that accomplish that.
Perhaps, lyrically, it doesn't compare to songs like Stairway To Heaven or American Pie - but it has some of the most cryptic and moving lines of all time and should be at least in the top 10.
I love the bit about landslides

10Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin
Breaking Benjamin is literally one of my favorite band. I'm so happy ben is back to work with the band, I just hope he gets some good members, since it's only him left!
The ultimate combination of the pain and conflict that everyone must endure at some point in their lives - the most honest song I've ever had the privilege of listening to.
This band rocks, and Benjamin knows how to write a good song

The Contenders

11Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan
No one can beat Bob Dylan when it comes to lyrics. After a point of time they aren't even song lyrics, they are sheer poetry..
Whats disappointing is that they haven't mentioned 'Mr Tambourine Man' by him
H
How amazing that Michael Jackson beats Bobby in this poll. Dylan was a genius, and probably the most impressive song writer that I have ever had the privilege of listening to
Bob Dylan is truly a legend when it comes to music and poetry, I'm surprised this song of his has not made the top tens as of yet. I also listen to Michael Jackson and John Lennon, but Bob tops them both with lyrical brilliance shining through his work.

12One - Metallica
I got nervous while this list was loading cause some of these list are absolute bull, and I woulda been pissed if this wasn't on here!
"Darkness imprisioning me
All that I see apsoulute horror
I cannot live I cannot die
Trappe in myself
My body my holding cell"
Best line EVER
Awesome song... Amazing video... Brilliant lyrics... Great drumming and guitaring. One what an asset to Metallica!

Certainly deserves to be top 3...

14American Pie - Don McLean
" And in the streets the children screamed
The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken
And the three men I admire most
The Father Son and Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died"

kheman1317

This song has the most creatively and carefully put together lyrics ever. It is highly symbolic of the time period it was written about.
This song has the power to touch all different generations. It is moving, powerful and can change your perspective of the world.

17Desolation Row - Bob Dylan
I'm so happy because so many have voted Desolation Row. It's definitely the best song ever written and I bet everyone who's listened to it know what I mean. The only lyrics that can compete with this one are some of Bob Dylans other songs like "It's alright ma" and "Mr Tambourine Man". Man In The Mirror is really good too, but you can't compare it to songs written by songwriters like Bob Dylan and Neil Young.

What's most depressing from this list is that "One" is 10th. I love the song, but the lyrics are just like in any other rock song. These kids who play Guitar Hero and say they're 13 years old and special because they love Metallica shouldn't really be allowed to vote here.
I just can't believe this is 17 on the list and "Linkin Park" is on number 9, No one, absolutely no one, comes close to Bob when it comes to lyrics, this one is incredible, It's Alright Ma should be on number 1 though, that's the nirvana of songwriters to me, every time you write lyrics you're on the shadow of that song...

18Hurt - Nine Inch Nails
Totally love this song - an Johnny Cash' version is just gold

23Nothing Else Matters - Metallica
Sometimes a guitar note inspires a song... Sometimes one word... In this case it was James talking to his girlfriend over the phone and that's when he got the idea for the beautiful intro and wrote one of their best songs... He even sung it beautifully... You'll be amazed if you listen to Master of Puppets or any song form "Kill "Em All" then listen to this.. Epic..37 cannot be... Not at all..
Deserves to be top1. When you create such a song by talking to your girlfriend on the phone, there's nothing more beautifu.
Why not no. 1?...
Listen to sample

24A Day In the Life - The Beatles
Arguably the best song by (hardly arguably) the best band in the world. Also some of the best lyrics lennon has written, far superior to the obvious preacherism of "imagine", which doesn't state anything we all didn't know already.
The other 99 of you obviously haven't even heard it otherwise this would be at the top, way above crap like Eminem and Michael jackson

25My Immortal - Evanescence
Just out of this world.
"You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now, I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me"
It helped me overcome the lost of a beloved one.

You have to be crazy not to pick this one. Clapton wrote some of the most meaningful lyrics as a memorial to the tragic death of his four year old son.

31Speculum - Adema Listen to sample

32Iris - Goo Goo Dolls
And I'd give up forever to touch you. Cause I know that you feel me somehow. You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be and I don't wanna go home right now.

All I can taste is this moment. And all I can breathe is your life. Sooner or later it's over. I just don't wanna miss you tonight.

And I don't want the world to see me, cause I don't think that they'd understand. When everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am.

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming, or the moment of truth in your life. When everything feels like the movies, yeah you bleed just to know you're alive.

And I don't want the world to see me, cause I don't think that they'd understand. When everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am.

I just want you to know who I am...
Love this song, such an underrated song! One of the best songs I have ever heard. Brilliant vocals and lyrics. Also very catchy. Should be in the top 10 definitely. Amazing.
Truly one of the most underrated songs ever. As much appreciation as this song gets, it's not nearly enough. The lyrics are brilliant!

What? #20? No way... He is the best lyricist in the whole damn world... His lyrics are about his own life... Amazing, Brilliant, Inspirational... Just hear "Not Afraid", "Love the way you lie", "Stan"'No love"... Etc..
No song lyric is as emotional as When I'm gone. What the hell man? This should be much above on the list.

36The Show Must Go On - Queen
The show must go on
The show must go on,
Inside my heart is breaking
My makeup may be flaking
But my smile still stays on.
I had some time choosing between Imagine and this song, but well, you know what I chose. I don't think a lot of people had good background knowledge of this song, which really gives it its meaning. It gives one the feeling of fearlessness and an unshaken determination.

37Time - Pink Floyd
This was a single edit number written by Roger Waters, and the rest of the band contributed to it to make a song that concerns every life on this earth.
This is one of the best numbers, ever.. Great Lyrics..
Just listen to the lyrics. IT is truly the best lyrics ever.
Man In The Mirror is a very good song. But it's lyrics are mediocre. Queen doesn't have great lyrics either. Where is Sound Of Silence. Now those are good lyrics, not Man In The Mirror and Bohemian Rhapsody.

Axl dedicated this song to his ex-wife, Erin Everly.

"But lovers always come
And lovers always go
And no one's really sure
Who's lettin' go today
Walking away
If we could take the time
To lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin' that you were mine
All mine
So if you want to love me
Then darlin' don't refrain
Or I'll just end up walkin'
In the cold November rain"

very beautiful lyrics

ronluna

The mood is so hauntingly addicting! Its so sad but so beautiful to listen to! Axl's voice is so sweet and honest, and the lyrics are so true,
So heart warming!
This should be number 1 so damn good, love, honest touching the hearts, just can't express my opinion too much heart touching, once again it should be number 1

61Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden is where it's at! I would have chosen many more of the songs from Iron Maiden over this one as far as lyrical content, but this was the only one on the list. Take my word for it, people. Iron Maiden, even if you don't like their music, has some of the greatest lyrics ever, especially in the album Brave New World.
I'm an Iranian fan of iron maiden. when I listen to this song, I'm not afraid of listening to a song that is from a different culture. I can feel the words with my heart. I can imagine all the things happening to the guy going to the gallows pole.
Epic lyric climax throughout the song with great sentiment and powerful images. You can feel the agony and energy of the lyrics till the end.

Though I know that evening's empire has returned into sand
Vanished from my hand
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping

My weariness amazes me, I am branded on my feet
I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming

This should be number 1!
MJ is overrated, he was entertaining but come on really you think those are the best lyrics. Bob Dylan's Blowin in the wind is the most amazing song but if I would have voted for that you would never see the comment because your taste in music is so bad you think MJ's lyrics are number one

75Thunder Road - Bruce Springsteen
"So you're scared and you're thinking
That maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me"

"Make crosses from your lovers
Throw roses in the rain"

"Waste your summer praying in vain
For a savior to rise from these streets"

"Well now I'm no hero
That's understood
All the redemption I can offer, girl
Is beneath this dirty hood"

"Well the nights busting open
These two lanes will take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real
To trade in these wings on some wheels"

"From your front porch to my front seat
The doors open but the ride it ain't free"

"There were ghosts in the eyes
Of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road
In the skeleton frames of burned out chevrolets"

"Its a town full of losers
And I'm pulling out of here to win. "

SO many amazing lyrics in this song. I could quote the entire song. Even the worst lyrics in this song is better than the best lyrics in almost all of the other songs on this list. How is this so low down? Springsteen is amazing.
How is this not number one, well maybe jungleland tells an amazing story as well, but Bruce is hands down the artist with the most soul. When you hear his music you know exactly where he's coming from. Rising up from the streets of New Jersey the all-time greatest songwriter ever!
This song is amazing!
"There were ghosts in the eyes
Of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road
In the skeleton frames of burned out chevrolets" is one of the best lines I've heard in my life! How in the world is this so low down?

76State of Grace - Taylor Swift
Perfect! She knows how to write a song and State Of Grace it's a good prove of that, you should also look at the lyrics of "All Too Well" (Another Taylor Swift song which I think the lyrics are perfectly well written). People should look a little more far than her commercial songs ("We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together", "I Knew You Were Trouble", "22"), she's truly talented and only an ignorant/hater might disagree with me.
Taylor swift is the best song writer! All of her songs have meaning and are all so amazing
"This is a state of grace
This is the worth while fight
Love is a ruthless game
Unless you play it good and right
These are the hands of fate
You’re my Achilles heel
This is the golden age of something good
And right and real"
Beautiful and well thought out lyrics. It's no wonder that she's become such a success. I will always be a Swiftie!
"I'm walking fast through the traffic lights
Busy streets and busy lives,
And all we know is touch and go"

"We fall in love till it hurts or bleeds or fades in time"

"I never saw you coming, and I'll never be the same"

"Love is a ruthless game unless you play it good and right."

Can't you see that you're smothering me?
'holding to tightly,

Brilliant, for anyone being compared to something bigger
There was a time when I used to hear this song dedicating it to my father...
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes...
Just love the lyrics
So underatted song! So meaningful lyrics!

79There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths

80Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers
This song should be rated much higher. The meanings the song conveys are quick, to the point and snappy. It makes a lot of comparisons as well as references very intelligently. The song also has a lot of double meanings which helps to strengthen every line. You can listen to the song over and over and still discover new meaning with what it is trying to say.

If Everyone Cared"

From underneath the trees, we watch the sky
Confusing stars for satellites
I never dreamed that you'd be mine
But here we are, we're here tonight

Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
Singing Amen, I, I'm alive

[Chorus:]
If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

And I'm singing

Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive
Amen I, Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive

And in the air the fireflies
Our only light in paradise
We'll show the world they were wrong
And teach them all to sing along

Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
(I'm alive)

[Chorus x2]

And as we lie beneath the stars
We realize how small we are
If they could love like you and me
Imagine what the world could be

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died
When nobody died...

[Chorus]

We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody died
We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody died
We'd see the day when nobody died

91Dance With the Devil - Immortal Technique
Fantastic choice. Absolutely belongs on this list. Not all that ecstatic that it is only one spot above a Taylor Swift song. I feel this song tells a much deeper story than most of the songs on here. As far as lyrics go this song embodies a struggle all us human beings go through.

"Everyone trying to be trife, never face the consequences
You probably only did a month for minor offenses
Ask a n**** doing life if he had another chance
But then again there's always the wicked that knew in advance
Dance forever with the devil on a cold cell block
But that's what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock
Devils used to be gods, angels that fell from the top
There's no diversity because we're burning in the melting pot"
Tells a great story, this song is the most underrated song of all time, and it goes the same with Immortal Technique. The brilliance of this song makes it one of the greatest not only Rap song of all time, but Best Songs of all time. A great lyricist...

It's far too bright to see ahead to tomorrow
I watch you as you turned your head and flew across time
Still but an innocent little girl

97Come As You Are - Nirvana
Come as you are,
as you were,
as I want you to be.
As a friend,
As a trend,
As a known memory.
Take your time,
Hurry up,
Choice is yours,
Don't be late,
Take a rest
As a friend
As a trend
As a known memory

98The End - The Doors
Very sad song about war and other things like that. Believe me, it's the last day of school today, and I sang this... I got home and cried.
The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall
He went into the room where his sister lived, and... Then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door... And he looked inside
Father, yes son, I want to kill you
Mother... I want to... WAA
