What're the most beautiful lyrics you've ever heard from a song (s)?

These are my favorites;
"Everybody pays, no one knows the price.
We know the price of sin, the sin of sacrifice.
I know i'll sin again, but who can save me twice?"

"So you look to me to find the truth, and what I say is what you do, but everyone you look up to, is really as fucked up as you."

"The innocent may cry without the guilty getting hurt."

"she'd rather fly through the sky than walk with the dead
so, she stays high while the world goes by
and just another day here waiting to die"

"she hides all the pain inside
by filling up her arms with pretty little lines
she cuts with no intent to kill
this time she didn’t do it but someday she will"

"Does it hurt just to know that it's all gone?
I can feel the pain in the words that you say
Hidden in the letters that were written to no name
Let me be the hands that you hold to your face
Cause I'd give it all up if I could take it away"

"And I could be the voice right inside of your head
I could say goodbye and you know where I went
I just wrote a letter that'll never be sent"

"I'm a believer,
Nothing could be worse,
All these imaginary friends.
Hiding betrayal,
Driving the nail,
Hoping to find a savior."

"So when the day comes and
The sun won't touch my face
Tell the ones who cared enough
That I finally left this place
That's been so cold
Look at my face
All the stories it will tell I can't erase
The road is long
Just one more song
A little something to remind you when I'm gone"

I have a lot more, that's just a fraction.

  • This may sound odd but my favorite lyrics are always from Evanescence songs. For example:

    "I miss the winter
    A world of fragile things
    Look for me in the white forest
    Hiding in a hollow tree
    (Can you find me?)"

    "But I know the difference
    Between myself and my reflection
    I just can't help but to wonder
    Which of us do you love?"

    "I linger in the doorway
    Of alarm clock screaming
    Monsters calling my name
    Let me stay
    Where the wind will whisper to me
    Where the raindrops as they're falling tell a story."

  • This is the end
    Beautiful friend
    This is the end
    My only friend, the end

    Of our elaborate plans, the end
    Of everything that stands, the end
    No safety or surprise, the end
    I'll never look into your eyes... again

    Can you picture what will be
    So limitless and free
    Desperately in need... of some... stranger's hand
    In a... desperate land

    Lost in a Roman... wilderness of pain
    And all the children are insane
    All the children are insane
    Waiting for the summer rain, yeah

    There's danger on the edge of town
    Ride the King's highway, baby
    Weird scenes inside the gold mine
    Ride the highway west, baby

    Ride the snake, ride the snake
    To the lake, the ancient lake, baby
    The snake is long, seven miles
    Ride the snake... he's old, and his skin is cold

    The west is the best
    The west is the best
    Get here, and we'll do the rest

    The blue bus is callin' us
    The blue bus is callin' us
    Driver, where you taken' us

    The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
    He took a face from the ancient gallery
    And he walked on down the hall
    He went into the room where his sister lived, and... then he
    Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
    He walked on down the hall, and
    And he came to a door... and he looked inside
    Father, yes son, I want to kill you
    Mother... I want to... fuck you

    C'mon baby, take a chance with us
    C'mon baby, take a chance with us
    C'mon baby, take a chance with us
    And meet me at the back of the blue bus
    Doin' a blue rock
    On a blue bus
    Doin' a blue rock
    C'mon, yeah

    Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill

    This is the end
    Beautiful friend
    This is the end
    My only friend, the end

    It hurts to set you free
    But you'll never follow me
    The end of laughter and soft lies
    The end of nights we tried to die

    This is the end

    • I thought of another. This ones actually a song from the soundtrack to the movw The Crow.

      "Don't look don't look" the shadows breathe
      Whispering me away from you
      "Don't wake at night to watch her sleep
      You know that you will always lose
      This trembling
      Adored
      Tousled bird mad girl..."
      But every night I burn
      But every night I call your name
      Every night I burn
      Every night I fall again

      "Oh don't talk of love" the shadows purr
      Murmuring me away from you
      "Don't talk of worlds that never were
      The end is all that's ever true
      There's nothing you can ever say
      Nothing you can ever do..."
      Still every night I burn
      Every night I scream your name
      Every night I burn
      Every night the dream's the same
      Every night I burn
      Waiting for my only friend
      Every night I burn
      Waiting for the world to end

      "Just paint your face" the shadows smile
      Slipping me away from you
      "Oh it doesn't matter how you hide
      Find you if we're wanting to
      So slide back down and close your eyes
      Sleep a while
      You must be tired..."
      But every night I burn
      Every night I call your name
      Every night I burn
      Every night I fall again
      Every night I burn
      Scream the animal scream
      Every night I burn
      Dream the crow black dream

      Dream the crow black dream

  • I hurt myself today
    To see if I still feel
    I focus on the pain
    The only thing that's real
    The needle tears a hole
    The old familiar sting
    Try to kill it all away
    But I remember everything

    What have I become
    My sweetest friend
    Everyone I know goes away
    In the end
    And you could have it all
    My empire of dirt
    I will let you down
    I will make you hurt

    I wear this crown of thorns
    Upon my liar's chair
    Full of broken thoughts
    I cannot repair
    Beneath the stains of time
    The feelings disappear
    You are someone else
    I am still right here

    What have I become
    My sweetest friend
    Everyone I know goes away
    In the end
    And you could have it all
    My empire of dirt
    I will let you down
    I will make you hurt

    If I could start again
    A million miles away
    I would keep myself
    I would find a way

    (That's "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails. I, and most people, prefer the Johnny Cash cover.)

    Alternatively, Trash by Suede, more specifically, the cover by John Darnielle from The Mountain Goats.

    Maybe, maybe it's the clothes we wear
    Our tasteless bracelets and the dye in our hair
    Maybe it's our kookiness
    Or maybe, maybe it's our nowhere towns
    Our nothing places and our cellophane sounds
    Maybe it's our looseness

    But we're trash, you and me
    We're the litter on the breeze
    We're the people on the streets
    We're trash, me and you
    It's in everything we do
    It's in everything we do

    Maybe, maybe it's the things we say
    The places we go and the music we play
    Maybe it's our cheapness
    Or maybe, maybe it's the times we've had
    The lazy days and the crazes and the fads
    Maybe it's our sweetness

    But we're trash, you and me
    We're the litter on the breeze
    We're the people on the streets
    We're trash, me and you
    It's in everything we do
    It's in everything we do

    Just trash, you and me
    We're the people on the streets
    We're the litter on the breeze
    We're trash, me and you
    It's in everything we do
    It's in everything we do

    • I love hurt by NIN

    • The Johnny Cash cover is one of the best things I've ever heard.

      Do check out the song "Trash" though. Especially The Mountain Goats cover. It expresses the same hate of oneself and hopelessness that "Hurt" does.

  • I woke up this morning and figured I'd call you
    In case I'm not here tomorrow
    I'm hoping that I can borrow a piece of mind
    I'm behind on what's really important
    My mind is really distorted
    I find nothing but trouble in my life
    I'm fortunate you believe in a dream
    This orphanage we call a ghetto is quite a routine
    And last night was just another distraction
    Or a reaction of what we consider madness
    I know exactly what happened
    You ran outside when you heard my brother cry for help
    Held him like a newborn baby and made him feel
    Like everything was alright
    And a fight he tried to put up, but the type
    Of bullet that stuck had went against his will
    As blood spilled on your hands
    My plans rather vindictive
    Everybody's a victim in my eyes
    When I ride it's a murderous rhythm
    And outside became pitch black
    A demon glued to my back whispering, "Get em"
    I got em, and I ain't give a fuck
    That same mentality I told my brother not to duck
    In actuality it's a trip how we trip off of colors
    I wonder if I'll ever discover
    A passion like you and recover
    The life that I knew as a young'n
    In pajamas and Dun-ta-duns
    When thunder comes it rains cats and dogs
    Dumb niggas like me never prosper
    Prognosis of a problem child
    I'm proud and well devoted
    This piru shit been in me forever
    So forever I'm a push it, wherever whenever
    And I love you cause you love my brother like you did
    Just promise me you'll tell this story when you make it big
    And if I die before your album drop I hope *Gunshots*

    What I was listening to at the time.

    Take me out tonight
    Because I want to see people and I
    Want to see life
    Driving in your car
    Oh, please don't drop me home
    Because it's not my home, it's their
    Home, and I'm welcome no more

    And if a double-decker bus
    Crashes into us
    To die by your side
    Is such a heavenly way to die
    And if a ten-ton truck
    Kills the both of us
    To die by your side
    Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine

    Take me out tonight
    Take me anywhere, I don't care
    I don't care, I don't care
    And in the darkened underpass
    I thought oh God, my chance has come at last
    (But then a strange fear gripped me and I
    Just couldn't ask)

    Take me out tonight
    Oh, take me anywhere, I don't care
    I don't care, I don't care
    Driving in your car
    I never never want to go home
    Because I haven't got one,
    Oh, I haven't got one

    And if a double-decker bus
    Crashes into us
    To die by your side
    Is such a heavenly way to die
    And if a ten-ton truck
    Kills the both of us
    To die by your side
    Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine

    Oh, there is a light and it never goes out
    There is a light and it never goes out
    There is a light and it never goes out
    There is a light and it never goes out
    There is a light and it never goes out
    There is a light and it never goes out
    There is a light and it never goes out
    There is a light and it never goes out
    There is a light and it never goes out

  • There you see her
    Sitting there across the way
    She don’t got a lot to say
    But there’s something about her
    And you don’t know why
    But you’re dying to try
    You wanna kiss the girl

    There's no love, like your love
    And no other could give more love
    There's nowhere, unless you're there
    All the time, all the way yeah

    The smell of your skin
    The taste of your kiss
    The way you whisper in the dark
    Your hair all around me
    Baby you surround me
    You touch every place in my heart
    Oh it feels like the first time every time
    I wanna spend the whole night in your arms

    So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
    Put you to bed if you've had too much to drink
    I could be the man who grows old with you
    I wanna grow old with you

    • Or... So, so you think you can tell
      Heaven from Hell
      Blue skies from pain
      Can you tell a green field
      From a cold steel rail?
      A smile from a veil?
      Do you think you can tell?

      Did they get you to trade
      Your heroes for ghosts?
      Hot ashes for trees?
      Hot air for a cool breeze?
      Cold comfort for change?
      And did you exchange
      A walk on part in a war
      For a lead role in a cage?

      How I wish, how I wish you were here
      We're just two lost souls
      Swimming in a fish bowl
      Year after year
      Running over the same old ground
      What have we found?
      The same old fears
      Wish you were here

    Life it seems, will fade away
    Drifting further every day
    Getting lost within myself
    Nothing matters no one else

    I have lost the will to live
    Simply nothing more to give
    There is nothing more for me
    Need the end to set me free

    Things not what they used to be
    Missing one inside of me
    Deathly lost, this Can t be real
    Cannot stand this hell I feel

    Emptiness is filling me
    To the point of agony
    Growing darkness taking dawn
    I was me, but now he 's gone

    No one but me can save myself, but it's too late
    Now, I can't think, think why I should even try
    Yesterday seems as though it never existed
    Death Greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye

What Girls Said 12

  • "I am everything you want
    I am everything you need
    I am everything inside of you
    That you wish you could be
    I say all the right things
    At exactly the right time
    But I mean nothing to you and I don't know why"

    "Her feelings she hides.
    Her dreams she can't find.
    She's losing her mind.
    She's fallen behind.
    She can't find her place.
    She's losing her faith.
    She's fallen from grace.
    She's all over the place."

    "But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    I know right now you can't tell
    But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
    A different side of me
    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
    I know right now you don't care
    But soon enough you're gonna think of me
    And how I used to be"

    "Goodbye, my almost lover
    Goodbye, my hopeless dream
    I'm trying not to think about you
    Can't you just let me be?
    So long, my luckless romance
    My back is turned on you
    Should've known you'd bring me heartache
    Almost lovers always do"

    "You hold me without touch.
    You keep me without chains.
    I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your reign."

    "We're smiling but we're close to tears
    Even after all these years
    We just now got the feeling that we're meeting
    For the first time"

    "Lost and insecure
    You found me, you found me
    Lyin' on the floor
    Surrounded, surrounded
    Why'd you have to wait?
    Where were you? Where were you?
    Just a little late
    You found me, you found me"

    "No you don't know what its like
    When nothing feels alright
    You don't know what its like to be like me
    To be hurt, to feel lost
    To be left out in the dark
    To be kicked when you're down
    To feel like you've been pushed around
    To be on the edge of breaking down
    And no one there to save you
    No you don't know what its like
    Welcome to my life"

    And I can't just pick one verse for every lyric in this song is near and dear to me :)

  • "If I ever found a pot of gold
    I'd buy bottles untold of the nectar of the vines
    Cuz I'm gonna die with a twinkle in my eye
    Cuz I sang song, spun stories, loved, laughed, and drank wine"

    "And so castles made of sand
    Melt into the sea
    Eventually"

    "I was gonna clean my room
    But then I got high
    I was gonna get up and find the broom

    My room is still messed up
    And I know why
    Because I got high, because I got high
    Because I got high
    La-da-da-da-dadada"

    "Once I rose above the noise and confusion
    Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
    I was soaring ever higher
    But I flew too high.
    Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
    Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
    I hear the voices when I'm dreaming -
    I can hear them say~
    Carry on my wayward son
    There'll be peace when you are done
    Lay your weary head to rest
    Don't you cry no more"

  • You Love Me Anyway : Sidewalk Prophets

    The question was raised
    As my conscience fell
    A silly, little lie
    It didn't mean much
    But it lingers still
    In the corners of my mind

    Still you call me to walk
    On the edge of this world
    To spread my dreams and fly
    But the future's so far
    My heart is so frail
    I think I'd rather stay inside

    But You love me anyway
    It's like nothing in life that I've ever known
    You love me anyway
    Oh Lord, how You love me
    How You love me

    It took more than my strength
    To simply be still
    To seek but never find
    All the reasons we change
    The reasons I doubt
    And why do loved ones have to die?

    But You love me anyway
    It's like nothing in life that I've ever known
    You love me anyway
    Oh Lord, how You love me
    How You love me

    I am the thorn in Your crown
    But You love me anyway
    I am the sweat from Your brow
    But You love me anyway
    I am the nail in Your wrist
    But You love me anyway
    I am Judas' kiss
    But You love me anyway

    See now, I am the man that called out from the crowd
    For Your blood to be spilled on this earth shaking ground
    Yes then, I turned away with this smile on my face
    With this sin in my heart tried to bury Your grace
    And then alone in the night, I still called out for You
    So ashamed of my life, my life, my life
    But You love me anyway
    Oh, God, how you love me

    But You love me anyway
    It's like nothing in life that I've ever known
    You love me anyway
    Oh Lord, how You love me
    How You love me

  • You were red

    And you liked me cause I was blue

    But you touched me

    And suddenly I was a lilac sky

    And you decided purple just wasn't for you

  • 🎶Lately i can't even eat
    Lately I've been feeling ill
    When you cannot sleep at night
    That's when you know shet (for you lol) is real
    You don't even need a gun🔫
    You don't even need a pill💊
    If you ever wanna die
    Fall in love❤
    And you'll get killed💔 🎶
