61Everytime - Britney Spears

Every time I try to fly
I fall without my wings
I feel so small
I guess I need you baby

Really a wonderful song. ! I just love it..

I love this song...
I always cry when third verse of this song comes...
I feel something while listening to it which I can't express

No just no...again probably not even written by her if anything give the guy or girl who wrote this tune (which isn't that great to be honest) the credit for this don't give it to the person and company who was to lazy or to busy to write a song a bought this off some poor sap for $1,500 and made $3,000,000 off of it come on people! any person with decent English skills and able to count syllable's could pull this off...like give me a break.

62The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin

Best song ever, I listen to it every day.

63The Crystal Ship - The Doors
64Maggots Ate Her Brain - The Lurking Corpses
65Californication - 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.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are WAY TOO LOW on this list. They have some of the best lyrics I have ever heard, from albums like Stadium Arcadium and Californication. It's sad how lyrical genius is often forgotten by more popular and mainstream music, whose artists do not even write their own music, and have non-intellectual lyrics, but catchy music.

I love this song it has a great meaning and should be much higher! The Red Hot Chili Peppers are great at making poetic lyrics! - TheThomasThomas

Should be rated mid 30's

66Same Love - Macklemore

It is a beautiful song that describes the right to choice... And also of how low we think... A thoughtful song that makes you question your thinking!

This song should really be higher in the list! It makes me cry every time I listen to it.

Never listen to that song yet, but after reading those lyrics they are deep, well written and honest, I've got to say without even hearing the song..pretty moving.

67The Unforgiven - Metallica

Not the best lyrics I've ever heard but it should be at least in the top 14. Go Metallica!

The lyrics, in my opinion are the best, touchy, feely and not to mention heartly, its definitely one of the best lyrics

68Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year.
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
Writer: WATERS, ROGER/GILMOUR, David JON

It's just poetic. May be hard for someone to understand a so deep meaning... Should be in top 10 in my opinion!

106! What can I say about the world.

69Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley

I know there are plenty of other songs that have way better lyrics, but, come on! It's the Rick-roll! - RiverClanRocks

What a bag of unimaginative, bland and talentless vomit.
