Backstreet Boys', "As Long As You Love Me"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I don't care who you are
Where you're from
What you did
As long as you love me.
Why They're Nonsensical:
1. She may be a psychopath 2. She might've escaped from prison or a mental institution 3. Does that include any felonies she may have committed? 4. With all that in mind, how long would that be?

Backstreet Boys', "Don't Want You Back"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You hit me faster than a shark attack
You saw my picture on the Backstreet's back alright!
Why They're Nonsensical:
You hit someone faster than a shark attack? What the heck? And what about that next line? I saw your picture on a what? Please finish the sentence before making a shameless plug.

Backstreet Boys', "I Want It That Way"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Yes I know, it's too late,
But I want it that way
Why They're Nonsensical:
It doesn't make sense!! Come on, they're singing about a girl 'you are my fire, the one desire.' What in the world do they want 'that way' I think it's retarted!!!

Backstreet Boys', "Incomplete"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Empty spaces fill me up with holes
Why They're Nonsensical:
This statement seems to contradict itself. Holes, by definition, don't have anything in them, so how can they fill?

Backstreet Boys', "Incomplete"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I'm awake,
but my world is half asleep.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Well, I do like the Backstreet Boys, but what exactly does this lyric mean?

Backstreet Boys', "Lose It All"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Cause knowing you are
outside breathing is so wonderful
Why They're Nonsensical:
Okay I appreciate being able to breathe too.

Backstreet Boys', "More Than That"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
So take my hand; don't say goodbye.
Why They're Nonsensical:
It's pretty obvious that whoever this song is about this person doesn't have any intention of staying.

Backstreet Boys', "Movin' On"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Living day by day,
everything must change
But in a way
everything stays the same
Why They're Nonsensical:
Not only is this couplet one of the stalest cliches in the history of pop but also stupidly contradictory. It doesn't take a genius to work out that if something changes, it can't remain the same.

Backstreet Boys', "My Beautiful Woman"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The day we first metta,
I was lookin to be your fella.
Why They're Nonsensical:
I guess I could have put this in the insincere lyrics category but first I had to put it here becuase of the lack of effort on AJ McLean's part to make a half-way decent rhyme. I like the Backstreet Boys but this line is just unforgivable.

Backstreet Boys', "Shape Of My Heart"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Hold me now, don't bother
Why They're Nonsensical:
Seems to give mixed signals here. Do you or do you not want the person to hold you?

Backstreet Boys', "Shape Of My Heart"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I played my part, kept you in the dark
Now let me show you the shape of my heart
Why They're Nonsensical:
I like the 'shape of my heart' metaphor, but why would someone be proud that they kept his lover in the dark? I never understood this chorus because of that line. the song is about someone who is 'trying to be someone' for his lover, but why kill the mood by saying that his role was to 'keep her in the dark?'

Backstreet Boys', "Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Guilty roads to an endless love
There's no control
Are you with me now
Your every wish will be done...
Why They're Nonsensical:
Okay, first let me just get this off my chest: say what? This is a pathetic attempt to sound intellectual, but, unfortunately for BSB, it makes absolutely no sense.

Backstreet Boys', "Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Show me the meaning of being lonely
Why They're Nonsensical:
Does any part of this song make sense to anyone? I think this song was an attempt for the Backstreet Boys to make themselves sound eloquent, but the song is just thrown together with some cool sounding phrases. Apparently this chick is very willing to show them the meaning of being lonely. He's the one still hung up on her.

Backstreet Boys', "Weird World"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I've got to catch a plane
but I won't buy a ticket
Why They're Nonsensical:
Then how in the hell would you catch a plane if you don't buy a ticket? Aren't you required to buy a ticket before you board a flight?

Backstreet Boys', "Weird World"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The sun is over the city
but it's an orange day
Why They're Nonsensical:
What the hell does that even mean?
