184 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

185 You Are Loved (Don't Give Up) - Josh Groban

This song helped me through a turbulent, violent time in a different country; I heard it for the first time while I was staying with a missionary family who took me in, and it seemed to be the perfect message both for me and those suffering around me. The lyrics are clear and empowering; this song still helps me feel strong, loved, and capable!

Josh Groban 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.

186 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

187 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.

188 Embryo - Dir en Grey

"so, a summer morning in 1983 my beloved mother always by my side
Hey, smile at me just like you always do in the sunlit morning your expression distorted

Mother's neck is choked as she hangs down from the heavens bye bye, mother
With silent tears and deep pain the flower, unable to bear it, is dying I am alone" - Taloper

Very good lyrics although Disturbing and twisted. To find the best translation I would look up Perix's Channel. I know this may seem like spam but well they are the most accurate.

189 Welcome to My Life - Simple Plan

Simple plan's lyrics deserve to be higher on this list, songs like Save You, Perfect, and Astronaut have the best lyrics in my opinion

190 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."

191 Take Me to Church - Hozier

Most gorgeous lyrics anywhere.
