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

Surf's Up - The Beach Boys Surf's Up - The Beach Boys Cover Art

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

The Long and Winding Road - The Beatles The Long and Winding Road - The Beatles Cover Art
Vincent - Don McLean

If you’ve never read "Lust for Life" by Irving Stone, you will discover the tragically tortured soul of Van Gogh, and this haunting song will bring tears—it always makes me cry with its poignant melancholy.

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

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

Angel With an Attitude - Samantha Fox Angel With an Attitude - Samantha Fox Cover Art

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.
