Songs With The Best Lyrics

21 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

Sometimes a guitar note inspires a song... Sometimes one word... In this case it was James talking to his girlfriend over the phone and that's when he got the idea for the beautiful intro and wrote one of their best songs... He even sung it beautifully... You'll be amazed if you listen to Master of Puppets or any song form "Kill "Em All" then listen to this.. Epic..37 cannot be... Not at all..

Nothing Else Matters...but getting this song to #1 it's the true meaning of an artist/band someone who can take just those famous simple notes from open strings and compose one of the most well known intros for a song in history this needs to be higher on this list or I've lost all hope.

Deserves to be top1. When you create such a song by talking to your girlfriend on the phone, there's nothing more beautifu.

This should be much higher among the top 5. - Singer4Freedom

The lyrics are so beautiful it made me cry

Lyrics are the deepest in any song. Jk but still a funny song

23 Hotel California - The Eagles

Wow this must be a joke! Not even in the top 100! This song is arguably the best song ever written along with stairway to heaven

Wow... People voting here clearly don't know this song

Should be number one

"counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike..."

25 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year.
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
Writer: WATERS, ROGER/GILMOUR, David JON

It's just poetic. May be hard for someone to understand a so deep meaning... Should be in top 10 in my opinion!

This isn't a song. It's a poem. It's such a beautifully worded masterpiece of how much they miss Syd Barret.

26 My Immortal - Evanescence

"You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now, I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me"

Very well written song, not a fan of evanescence but I can't deny a well written song.

It helped me overcome the lost of a beloved one.

Great, evan evanescence is amazing

27 Changes - David Bowie
28 In My Life - The Beatles

God, this song is so good. Talks about real life.
"There are places I remember, all my life though some have changed"... Happens sometimes. The Beatles just rock!

29 Creep - Radiohead

A beautiful bit of ambiguity. Anyone, no matter who, where or why can listen to this song and make something of it that is deeply personal and relatable.

I believe this song is amazing and, shares great emotion definitely one of my favorites.

The music is awesome, an the lyrics does full justice to it if understood properly.

Best song haha. - Singer4Freedom

30 Black - Pearl Jam

I know some day you'll have a beautiful life I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky but why can't it be mine

Best rock love song of all time!

I can't believe I had to add it on my own.

Best song in the history of music!

33 Hush - Automatic Loveletter
34 Tears - Rush
35 November Rain - Guns N' Roses

Axl dedicated this song to his ex-wife, Erin Everly.

"But lovers always come
And lovers always go
And no one's really sure
Who's lettin' go today
Walking away
If we could take the time
To lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin' that you were mine
All mine
So if you want to love me
Then darlin' don't refrain
Or I'll just end up walkin'
In the cold November rain"

very beautiful lyrics - ronluna

This should be number 1 so damn good, love, honest touching the hearts, just can't express my opinion too much heart touching, once again it should be number 1

The mood is so hauntingly addicting! Its so sad but so beautiful to listen to! Axl's voice is so sweet and honest, and the lyrics are so true,
So heart warming!

I love it. - Singer4Freedom
