Songs With The Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 18

341 Jeremy - Pearl Jam
342 U'r Chosen - Sugamice

Funny, sexy and very spiritual mixture.

343 Kristy, Are You Doing Okay? - The Offspring
344 The River - Bruce Springsteen V 1 Comment
345 How to Save a Life - The Fray

Powerful lyrics, listen to the words carefully and if you have ever had someone close to you in a bad mindset this will mean something good. To you

Read about how this song came to be and you'll understand that it's even more sad than it sounds.

346 Fireflies - Owl City
347 The Man Who Can't Be Moved - The Script

Why wasn't this on here?

348 Breakeven - The Script
349 Blackbird - Alter Bridge

There's no way this band shouldn't have a song in at least the top 50. Myles Kennedy is one of the greatest songwriters of our generation, proven through his work with Alter Bridge, Slash, and The Mayfield Four. I can't listen to this song without getting chills from the raw emotion he pours into his lyrics. Doesn't hurt to have the #1 guitar solo of all time (according to both a 2011 poll and my own opinion) in the middle, either.

There's no way this song is'nt at least in the Top 20! Hell, this is close to being my Number 1 of this list (#2 to be exact)!
Besides this is my all-time favorite song! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

350 Diana - One Direction

Dedicated to the girls who self-harm.

"Diana, let me be the one to light a fire inside those eyes. You've been lonely, you don't even know me. But I can feel you crying.

Diana, let me be the one to lift your Heart up and save your life. I don't think you even realise, baby you've been saving mine."

351 DLZ - TV on the Radio
352 I Miss You - Blink-182
353 The A Team - Ed Sheeran
354 Build God, Then We'll Talk - Panic! at the Disco

It's such a deep song (and video... ) by Panic! At the Disco! Although it can be interpreted a little differently, it's about being forced to make choices like abandoning your purity to obtain the things you want and stooping to new lows, hence the 'sleeping with roaches'. It's also telling a story about a sleazy lawyer at a motel with someone whoring themselves off for their job, then getting caught and having to pay the consequences (pregnancy). If you haven't hear it, you really should listen! Aside from lyrics, it is also brilliant. that cello solo makes my heart quiver every time! It's not an uplifting song, and it's not about things like politics, love, or friendship, but the story it tells is so moving! It also disproves the meaning behind the song 'my favorite things' for the Sound of Music.

I love this so much. Ryan Ross is an amazing lyricist. - Hai

355 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day

360 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel
