Songs With The Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 23

441 The Scientist - Coldplay
442 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.

443 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. "

444 Falling for the First Time - Barenaked Ladies
445 Nutshell - Alice In Chains V 2 Comments
446 Jeremy - Pearl Jam
447 There's No Home for You Here - White Stripes
448 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.

449 Waiting on the World to Change - John Mayer

This is worthy to be on this list.

450 Nerd of Desire - Sugamice V 1 Comment
451 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...

452 We Don't Eat - James Vincent Mcmorrow
453 Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol

"If I lay here if I just lay here would you lie with me and just forget the world forget what we're told before we get too old "

This song deserved to be in top 20 list!
Best lyrics ever!

454 Driver's Seat - Sniff 'n' the Tears
455 Love Is a Losing Game - Amy Winehouse
456 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.

457 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.

458 Read All About It - Emeli Sande
459 The Bitter End - Architects
460 I Do Adore - Mindy Gledhill

Everything you do it sends me
Higher than the moon with every
Twinkle in your eye
You strike a match that lights my heart on fire

When you're near, I hide my blushin face
And trip on my shoelaces
Grace just isn't my forte
But it brings me to my knees when you say

Hello, how are you, my darling today?
I fall into a pile on the floor
Puppy love is hard to ignore
When every little thing you do, I do adore

Were as different as can be
I've noticed you're remarkably relaxed
And I'm overly uptight
We balance out each other nicely

You wear sandals in the snow
In mid-July I still feel cold
Were opposites in every way
But I can't resist it when you say


Finding words, I mutter
Tongue-tied, twisted
Foot in mouth, I start to stutter
Ha, ha, Heaven help me


Every little thing, ba, ba, ba, ba
Every little thing, ba, ba, ba, ba
Every little thing you do I do adore
