Then there are the hard luck tales about "the one that got away". I find it impossible to care unless there's a special lilt in the vocalist's delivery lol
But see, those generally aren't the type of lyrics I listen to (with a few exceptions).
And that is where my comment lyrics can make or break a band IMHO comes from.
Dumb lyrics often mean I won't bother buying it.
For example, Rush has maybe 2 "love"songs in their entire catalog. Metallica? None.
