Songs With the Most Beautiful Lyrics

PetSounds
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 Ten

1 Surf's Up - The Beach Boys Surf'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

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

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

4 Go Gentle - Robbie Williams Go Gentle - Robbie Williams

It's about his daughter

For all the girls

5 I'm Not Supposed to Care - Gordon Lightfoot I'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

6 The House That Built Me - Miranda Lambert The House That Built Me - Miranda Lambert

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

7 In My Life - The Beatles In My Life - The Beatles

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

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

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

12 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel
13 The Sound of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel The Sound of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel
14 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day

Most nostalgic song ever

15 Whispering Wind - Moby Whispering Wind - Moby

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

16 Angel With an Attitude - Samantha Fox Angel 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.

17 Last to Know - Three Days Grace Last to Know - Three Days Grace
18 Advertising Space - Robbie Williams Advertising Space - Robbie Williams
19 Stand by Me - Ben E King Stand by Me - Ben E King

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