Songs With The Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 10

181 The End - The Doors

Very sad song about war and other things like that. Believe me, it's the last day of school today, and I sang this... I got home and cried.

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall
He went into the room where his sister lived, and... Then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door... And he looked inside
Father, yes son, I want to kill you
Mother... I want to... WAA

182 The Unforgiven III - Metallica

By far one of the best songs out there...

183 Come as You Are - Nirvana

This is below Taylor Swift?! what the hell is wrong with these people?

You will know this song is cool and awesome once you listen to this.

Shame on people for preferring LiLo to this. Music is dead.

Come as you are,
as you were,
as I want you to be.
As a friend,
As a trend,
As a known memory.
Take your time,
Hurry up,
Choice is yours,
Don't be late,
Take a rest
As a friend
As a trend
As a known memory

184 Drops of Jupiter - Train

Love this! Why is this below Taylor Swift?

A not really straight to the point lyrics. up to you who to relate it to. Very well made.

192 Forever and Always - Bullet for My Valentine

reminds me of my last relationship.. - cahum

193 Chasing Pavements - Adele

A song which has life in it! Once you listen to this one of course this will be your favourite for some time. Let she be another music legend. The best of the time.

194 Clean - Taylor Swift

No don't want to listen and not going to. I've got better things to listen to. You won't find me listening that's for sure so don't tell me to listen. Stop shoving!

Listen and comprehend...

If you're not going to listen it's your loss

She lost him but she found herself

195 Alive - Pearl Jam

Eddie Vedder has the knack of choosing songs with wonderful lyrics, which are not only beautiful in themselves but have such a heartfelt and moving truth within them. Everybody wants to be loved, that is so true; for those who have low self-esteem these lyrics are a huge encouragement to carry on, no matter how difficult life is

The story of this song is really deep

196 It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) - Bob Dylan

Definitely belongs here. The lyrics are very poetical and contains some very famous quotes like "he who is not busy being born is busy dying. " and "Sometime even the president of the United States has to stand naked. ". This is more than just a song. It is a piece of history.

Draws with Desolation Row as the two best lyrical songs I have ever heard. The cynical nature of this work is stunning, and in my opinion it is Dylan's best song. Not just the lyrics, but the way they are sung, make this song truly amazing.

I agree when I think of a song all about lyrics this is the one dylan him self said he could never write a song like this again. it came from thin air and wrote it self.

Endless amounts of timeless quotes, arguably, the best song ever written.

197 All Too Well - Taylor Swift

Maybe we got lost in translation, maybe I asked for too much,
And maybe this thing was a masterpiece 'til you tore it all up.
Running scared, I was there, I remember it all too well.

Hey, you call me up again just to break me like a promise.
So casually cruel in the name of being honest.
I'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying here
'Cause I remember it all, all, all too well.

"Maybe we got lost in translation,
Maybe I asked for too much,
But maybe this thing was a masterpiece
'Til you tore it all up."
"And you call me up again just to break me like a promise,
So casually cruel in the name of being honest."

"Time won't fly, it's like I'm paralyzed by it,
I'd like to be my old self again, but I'm still trying to find it."

198 Take Me to Church - Hozier

Most gorgeous lyrics anywhere.
