The Most Beautiful Lyrics

I have been listening, really listening to music lately. I have marveled in the beauty of how some words can really just hit home for me so I thought that I would love to share some of what I consider the most beautiful slices of lyrics out there. P.S. I am a huge indie/alternative fan so you’ll probably be seeing lyrics from mostly that genre.

I Believe In You-Tyler Hilton

No, it don’t feel like sleep when I’m this alive it’s true, I believe in you

I Can’t Make You Love Me- Bon Iver

‘Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart and I’ll feel the power
But you won’t, no you won’t

Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)- Hillsong United

And keep my eyes above the waves, When oceans rise

A Drop In The Ocean- Ron Pope

It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert, But I’m holding you closer than most ’cause you are my heaven

What Now- Rihanna

Whatever it is, it feels like it’s laughing at me through the glass of a two-sided mirror Whatever it is, it’s just sitting there laughing at me, And I just wanna scream

 John Doe- B.O.B. Ft. Priscilla

Seems like the bus moves slower
Just cause you got somewhere to go
So you take a few pills in Beverly Hills
But if anyone asks you’ve got a prescription
You got an addiction
Who do you think that you’re fooling?

Runaway-Aurora

And I was running far away
Would I run off the world someday?
Nobody knows, nobody knows
And I was dancing in the rain
I felt alive and I can’t complain
But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go

Little Hell-City and Colour

My war ships are lying off the coast of your delicate heart
And my aim is steady and true as it’s been right from the start

I’ll dig for water and fashion our very own wishing well

Then we’ll throw our coins down hoping to rid of us of this little hell

Don’t Dream It’s Over- Crowded House

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Call Me- Shinedown

Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it’s over I’ll still love you the same
Call me your favorite, call me the worst
Tell me it’s over I don’t want you to hurt
It’s all that I can say. So, I’ll be on my way

I finally put it all together,
But nothing really lasts forever
I had to make a choice that was not mine,
I had to say goodbye for the last time

AND END LYRICS! These are probably mood specific at the moment but they’re just either really simple and true or just poetic. PLEASE share your favorite lyrics below!

Until Next Time,

Anna Marie

    I’ve tried to “get” lyrics but rarely do, Some are nonsensical others I weave my own take on them, I wish tracks came with an explanation of what the artist thinks the song is about. Take Street Spirit by Radiohead for example, one of my favourite tunes but I have no idea what it is about. However I do know how a track makes me feel from the music, and so that is generally how I go for my music rather than the lyrics.

      I completely agree. When I was going through some songs, I found that some of my favorite songs are purely based off of how they make me feel. However, sometimes I find lyrics within songs that I love that really resonate with how I’m feeling. It’s very true. I can listen to a song for years and never actually understand what it’s about.

        Weird isn’t it, after mentioning Street Spirit, I did a search on its lyrics and found this – http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/radiohead/streetspiritfadeout.html – it still confused the hell out of me, they make no sense to me at all. That is the first time I have seen those and I suppose with Radiohead it’s harder anyway as sometimes he is difficult to understand.

        So that means I must have been going off the music and how it makes me feel, I know it isn’t a cheerful song you can pick that up just by the way it sounds, but I was curious so did a search on its meaning and found this – http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/news/general_music_news/thom_yorke_explains_dark_meaning_to_street_spirit.html – If those words are indeed his I get a number of things from it.

        A: the fans are clueless about the lyrics too as he mentions they seem to enjoy it and he doesn’t understand how.
        B: I still don’t understand that he can write a song and then write those words about it, about them being catalysts etc, perhaps I am not out there enough to be a song writer but I am still struggling to understand.

        So I think for me at least, unless the lyrics are black and white understandable, ill stick with the feeling 😀

        Looking at some of the lyrics you posted, they are easier to understand but even then I think you are putting your own story to them, which is great, I think every good song should do that, you put your own take on it and make it yours.
