Songs With The Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 19

361 Wake Up - Arcade Fire

The lyrics in this song, paired with a keening melody, sing mournfully about the pain of coming of age and try to explain to the listener the inevitability of realizing how cruel the world can be.

362 Paradise Lost - Hollywood Undead

They have some great lyrics in a lot of there songs, but this one has some of the best.
"We're the heart for the heartless,
The thoughts for the thoughtless,
The lies for the honest
We're the gods of the godless! "

363 The Day I Left the Womb - Escape the Fate

It is a sad song that is sung with such emotion as well as amazing sad lyrics. You can read the pain that is there, and you can also hear it in the singers voice if you listen to the song.
" Please don't worry,
I am doing fine.
You're much too busy,
To even find the time,
So use your chemicals
And take this to your grave,
The boys you left
Are men you didn't raise. "

364 Falling for the First Time - Barenaked Ladies
365 Skin - Sixx:A.M.

" Well they don't even know you
All they see is scars
They don't see the angel
Living in your heart

Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you've got
That you are not
That you are not your skin "
- Try tell me that this does not mean anything to you. It may one day. =] - WoozertWooTAku

366 Nutshell - Alice In Chains V 2 Comments
367 Life Eternal - Mayhem

Dead's suicide note - absolutely beautiful

368 Jeremy - Pearl Jam
369 There's No Home for You Here - White Stripes
370 Brave - Sara Bareilles

This song is really inspirational for all those people who struggle to come to terms with their self and are afraid to say what they feel.

371 Waiting on the World to Change - John Mayer

This is worthy to be on this list.

372 Nerd of Desire - Sugamice V 1 Comment
373 U'r Chosen - Sugamice

Funny, sexy and very spiritual mixture.

374 I'm a Genius - Sugamice

I keep on running like a desperate rodent in the shabby hamster-wheel of inconvenience. Tell me how much time can you waste in one life? Highly overqualified and deeply underpaid. Where's my head-hunter? I wouldn't fight. I'm afraid he might appear much to late. I'm a Genius, but I'm stuck in this place...

375 We Don't Eat - James Vincent Mcmorrow
376 Driver's Seat - Sniff 'n' the Tears
377 Love Is a Losing Game - Amy Winehouse
378 Save You - Simple Plan

Beautiful song about dealing with cancer, or something else like suicide, music is what you make it, and what meaning it has to YOU.

379 Jungleland - Bruce Springsteen

This list is all bs, imagine is a great song but I know for a fact that Taylor swift shouldn't be anywhere on this list and neither should any bands like her or linkin park or whatever, because this is an epic song that tells an amazing story. Bruce Springsteen is able to fit the information, emotion, and soul into a song when other artist can only dream of fitting it into an album. Best lyric ever.

380 Read All About It - Emeli Sande
