22 Fiction - Avenged Sevenfold

Last words written and sang by the man called Jimmy O�'Sullivan before he died. Respect

23 Into the Sky - Black Tide
24 If Everyone Cared - Nickelback

The lyrics to this song are just... I can't describe. This song gives me the chill. "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. "

Oh my gosh, I love this song! I recently heard a song by Nickelback on Pandora, and it took me back to when I was young. It's depressing how the best bands with real messages in their songs aren't on the radio anymore. That includes Nickelback, The Fray, Daughtry, and LIfehouse. There are a lot more though.

Its such a great and powerful song, I love how Chad kroeger sings this song. I recommend that everyone should at least listen to this song

I like this song a lot

25 Numb - Linkin Park

This song perfectly encapsulates the feeling of not living up to other people's expectations and thinking you're not good enough. Personally, I've been pushed so hard and it always seems as if the dreams my parents have for me are their own. I want to pursue music and my parents want me to focus on academia. Listening to this song helps me realize that I'm not the only one who's gone through this and it gives me strength to do what I want for myself rather than what others want from me.

This song has described me perfectly over the years. "I'm becoming this/All I want to do/Is be more like me/And be less like you" (part of this song's chorus) It has suited me, and it hasn't changed.

This is actuallly a very relatable song to people in high school and college that don't know what they want to do with their life but their parents pressure them into doing what they want them to do ex: "All I want to do, is be more like me and be less like you! And I know I may end up failing too, but I know you were just like me with someone disappointed in you! "

Its amazing!

26 A Match Into Water - Pierce the Veil

This song is actually about Vic Fuentes' ex girlfriend but a lot of people love the first few sentences. It talks about scars on someone's skin. Now this could be seen as from after a operation or from self harm. Vic anyways shows that you are still beautiful and he doesn't want to loose you.

This truly is such a beautiful song, it has helped me so much when I'm feeling unimaginably depressed, the artists have put so much feeling and honesty into this song along with every other song they have made Pierce The Veil has honeslty helped me through so much.

Amazing song, the lyrics are so pure and raw. There's no sugar coating, excellent musicians.

I always cry when listening to this

27 Swing Life Away - Rise Against

This song has helped me through times in my life where I felt worthless and like continuing day by day was pointless. I mean, you're born, you go to school to get a job, you get a job to pay for retirement, you spend a decade doing stuff you should have done when you were younger and then you die. You get buried and then digested by worms and fungus. It all seemed hopeless. Then I heard this and it made me feel stronger. It pushed me through the block in my life and should definitely be in the top 10.

28 Open Fields of Grace - Jackie Evancho


This is a beautiful song about love that lasts forever, featuring soaring vocals by then-14-year-old Jackie. From the album "Awakening." - BobG

29 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

The definition of a classic, beautiful and meaningful song

30 Can You Feel My Heart - Bring Me the Horizon

This song is very touching and Bring me the horizon is just an amazing band all together. It's definitely worth listening to.

This song is about admitting you have a problem. Admitting something's wrong. Oliver Sykes, the lead singer, had to admit that he had a problem with drugs. Some teens have to admit this too and some have to admit they have a mental problem. That is why this song is meaningfull.

The part with, "I'm scared to get close, and I hate being alone" just makes me want to cry.

31 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

I love this song as much as the next guy, but it is completely meaningless. Freddie Mercury himself has said multiple times he made the lyrics up. - TheStargazer

How is this so low?

Come on this song should be in top 5

Yeah it should be in the top ten :(

32 Butterfly - Mariah Carey
33 Bite My Tongue - You Me At Six

This song is just so relatable and amazing!

34 Afterglow - Nine Lashes
35 Lose Yourself - Eminem

Lyrically amazing, Eminem doesn't waste time and says exactly what he wants to say. His lyrics talk about how hard his life back in Detroit was and how he has one shot to live a better life

This song has gotten me through my hardest times. Eminem definitely knows how to bring the tears out of me in the realest way possible.

Very deep meaning to the song. The words just hits me straight in the heart and mind. Singing about how you have a chance to make things right.

yes emi

36 Imaginer - Jackie Evancho
37 Time - Pink Floyd

And then the one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun
And you run and you run
To catch up with the sun
But it's sinking
Racing around
To come up behind you again
The sun is the same
In a relative way
But you're older
Shorter of breath
And one day closer to death
Extraordinary Lyrics, time passes us by and we don't even notice it

This song always makes me cry! The lyrics are so mesmerizing, that sometimes I reflect upon myself and think of all the time I wasted in my life. Guitar solo also rocks!

This is an extraordinary song by an extraordinary group. Hey You is also a very very meaningful song too. - fireinside96

God! Can this not be any lower? - BrianScott01

38 How Long Will I Love You - Ellie Goulding
39 They Don't Care About Us - Michael Jackson

This song just shows that no matter what they say (the government) they care for no-one. Don't trust politicians, and don't trust easily.

Such an inspiring song. Just goes to show that the illuminati and the government shouldn't be trusted

This is an amazing song

All I wana say is that they don't care about us.

40 Clocks - Coldplay

A beautiful song with lyrics that are more than skin deep... With hidden meanings and a melody that is hauntingly beautiful, this song should be higher up on the list

Mesmerizing, beautiful piece of artwork
