Songs With the Most Beautiful Lyrics

I realized that list is nearly identical to its partner: Songs With the Most Beautiful Melodies. I suppose that some songs just connect with me.

The Top TenXW

1Surf's Up - The Beach Boys

I really didn't appreciate Surf's Up until a month or two ago, when I heard a piano demo Brian Wilson did in 1966. As sentences, the lyrics make no sense, but when put to that melody, they take you to heaven for the duration of the song. - PetSounds

2The Long and Winding Road - The Beatles
3Vincent - Don McLean

These lyrics almost capture the intense beauty in Van Gogh's paintings. Enough said. - PetSounds

4Go Gentle - Robbie Williams

It's about his daughter

For all the girls

5I'm Not Supposed to Care - Gordon Lightfoot

.,. And thank YOU PetSounds for bring this song into MY life. It's so touching.
Gorgeous list by the way. Agree with them all. - Britgirl

6The House That Built Me - Miranda Lambert

Thank-you for bringing this song into my life, Britgirl. I truly connected with it. - PetSounds

7In My Life - The Beatles

I fell in love with this song before I heard it. I simply read the lyrics. - PetSounds

8Christmas In the Trenches - John Mcdermott
9Leningrad - Billy Joel
10Coma White - Marilyn Manson

I'm glad to see this in the Top 10. It's definitely a song everyone should listen to before they die.

The Contenders

11Hey Jude - The Beatles

Hey jude is one of the greatest songs ever written with truly amazing lyrics.

12Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel
13The Sound of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel
14Whispering Wind - Moby

I recommend this song to you, PetSounds. And Britgirl. It's a truly breathtaking song. Think you'll like. - PositronWildhawk

15Angel With an Attitude - Samantha Fox

Special list indeed. I'm not a fan of Samantha Fox, but this song has beautiful lyrics and it's very moving. However, you better not see the official videoclip, believe me, it doesn't do justice to the song! Just listen to it.

16Last to Know - Three Days Grace
17Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day

Most nostalgic song ever

18Advertising Space - Robbie Williams
19Stand by Me - Ben E King

RIP. It's one of those songs the world wouldn't be the same without. :( - PetSounds
