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

4 I'm Not Supposed to Care - Gordon Lightfoot

.,. And thank YOU PetSounds for bring this song into MY life. It's so touching.
Gorgeous list by the way. Agree with them all. - Britgirl

5 Go Gentle - Robbie Williams

It's about his daughter

For all the girls

6 The House That Built Me - Miranda Lambert

Thank-you for bringing this song into my life, Britgirl. I truly connected with it. - PetSounds

7 In My Life - The Beatles

I fell in love with this song before I heard it. I simply read the lyrics. - PetSounds

8 Christmas In the Trenches - John Mcdermott
9 Leningrad - Billy Joel
10 Hey Jude - The Beatles

Hey jude is one of the greatest songs ever written with truly amazing lyrics.

Take a sad song and make it better

The Contenders

11 Coma White - Marilyn Manson

I'm glad to see this in the Top 10. It's definitely a song everyone should listen to before they die.

12 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel
13 This is Why I Need You - Jesse Ruben
14 Thoughts - Michael Schulte
15 The Sound of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel
16 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day

Most nostalgic song ever

17 Whispering Wind - Moby

I recommend this song to you, PetSounds. And Britgirl. It's a truly breathtaking song. Think you'll like. - PositronWildhawk

18 Angel With an Attitude - Samantha Fox

Special list indeed. I'm not a fan of Samantha Fox, but this song has beautiful lyrics and it's very moving. However, you better not see the official videoclip, believe me, it doesn't do justice to the song! Just listen to it.

19 Last to Know - Three Days Grace
20 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day
