Songs With The Best Lyrics

201 All Star - Smash Mouth
202 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.

203 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.

204 Wuthering Heights - Kate Bush
205 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

206 Fade to Black - Metallica
207 Between the Bars - Elliott Smith
208 Someone Like You - Adele

I love Adele

209 Bullet With Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins

Great lyrics, and great guitar line. It was one of the greatest songs of the nineties played by one of the most influential bands of the past decade.
"Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage! "

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

210 4 in the Morning - Gwen Stefani
211 You'll See - Madonna

This song is about girl power! Yeah!

212 Matwaseneesh - Tamer Hosny
213 Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis
214 Love Song - Sara Bareilles
215 Hitomi no Juunin - L'Arc~en~Ciel

this is my fave larc song that made me in love with all of them hyde, ken tetsu and yukihiro - noihimura

216 One - U2

How are there practically 0 U2 songs on this list?!? And how is this ONE not here in first place?!

"We're one but we're not the same
We get to carry each other"

"You say, 'Love is a temple, love a higher law'
Love is a temple, love a higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't be holdin on to what you got
When all you got is hurt"

This should be on the top. Not below some unknown songs

217 The Rescue - American Hi-Fi

I wish we could go back to the begining, cause there's something missing from your eyes. I wish I could fly, I know I can save us somehow. You thought you were safe and sound, but you need a hero now. You gotta believe, even with broken wings, I'll come to your rescue and you can rescue me. -

I wish I could fly...
I know I can Save us Somehow
Broken wings
NICE
Go the best band ever for me
Try them everyone

218 Your Song - Elton John

A love song you only need to hear once to fall in love with

219 Holiday - Green Day

#142? This song, along with The Doors-The End should have been in top 10. Why is like Linkin Park and Coldplay and Eminem up there when the real poets are lying down here?

One of the greatest diss tracks ever. Criticizing the nation in the most brilliant ways possible. - ProPanda

One of their best song. Very deep meaning

One of my favorite songs by anyone
