Your home for everything artistic

Of course we all know that many of the great musical artists out there showcase some extremely poignant lyrical content in their work. But in many cases, profound lyrical and even poetic content can easily be missed or overlooked when it comes to more commercial or mainstream bands and artists.

Here are a few examples of some deep and intriguing lyrics as they appear in songs of some of today’s most notable musical acts:

“Crush Crush Crush” by Paramore

They taped over your mouth
Scribbled out the truth with their lies
You little spies

“If I Die Young” by The Band Perry

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

“What I Want” by Daughtry

What I want
And what I need
Has now become the same thing
You’ve been offering

“Firework” by Katy Perry

You don’t have to feel like a wasted space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow
