This is almost Josh's signature tune. This song has very spiritual and emotive lyrics. One of the all-time classics.

Beautiful lyrics and sung in an awesome way... He is not my favourite but this is one of my favourite songs... So inspirational and filled with emotions

110 Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead

Radiohead have the best lyrics ever, they may be depressing but they're good. I'm surprised idolisers isn't on here, they're like the most famous lyrics of all time

Fantastic lyrics best enjoyed through headphones and with eyes closed - emerged in the moment

She lives with a broken man,
A cracked polystyrene man,
Who just crumbles and burns

111 State of Grace - Taylor Swift State 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.

This girls lyrics are an abomination. She needs to do a little more introspection before passing on the slander that she does.

She is the best lyricist I've ever seen! I don't have any words to say how awesome she is... Love You Taylor!

Huh? Don't think so!

112 You Found Me - The Fray You Found Me - The Fray

I love the fray, I would describe them as an American coldplay which raises the question, where is "fix you" (by coldplay)? I do disgree with "you found me" being up here this high when their best song by far "howto save a life" is nowhere to be seen!

113 Everytime - Britney Spears Everytime - 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 give me a break.

114 Always - Bon Jovi Always - Bon Jovi

I cried when I heard it the first time. I cried when I saw a video of them preforming it live - original and acoustic. Jon is singing it with so much emotion and David's keyboards have a special tone in this one... The rest of the band is also doing a great job on this one but the lyrics, the lyrics are so powerful... and I will love you - always.

I'll be there till the star no shine, till the heaven burst and the words no rhyme, I know when I die you will live on my mind and I love you always

115 Life on Mars? - David Bowie Life on Mars? - David Bowie V 1 Comment

117 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
118 Arrab Kaman - Tamer Hosny
119 Dust In the Wind - Kansas Dust In the Wind - Kansas

Best lyrics. Really deep about life. This should be at least at the top 5
"All we are is dust in the wind"

I love this great one
