Songs With the Most Beautiful Lyrics

I realized that list is nearly identical to its partner: Songs With the Most Beautiful Melodies. I suppose that some songs just connect with me.

The Top Ten

1 Surf's Up - The Beach Boys

I really didn't appreciate Surf's Up until a month or two ago, when I heard a piano demo Brian Wilson did in 1966. As sentences, the lyrics make no sense, but when put to that melody, they take you to heaven for the duration of the song. - PetSounds

2 The Long and Winding Road - The Beatles
3 Vincent - Don McLean

These lyrics almost capture the intense beauty in Van Gogh's paintings. Enough said. - PetSounds
