Lyrics or music? Which is more important?

Lyrics or music - which is more important for the success of a song. I think lyrics are more important. Songs with good music may become hits. But only songs with good lyrics will remain in our heart for ever.

This is a really hard question to answer. Sometimes what makes a song particularly engaging can't just be traced to the melody or the lyrics. Sometimes it's the delivery of the artist; sometimes it's the arrangement; sometimes it's an instrument solo. I think both lyrics and melody go hand in hand in producing a beautiful song. Case in point, Sarah McLachlan's lyrics wouldn't be so poignant is she wasn't able to figure out a melody that perfectly catches the message of the words.
