Looking for German songs with great lyrics

Hi language learners! 

I've been looking for some awesome German singers and lyricists to motivate me to learn German. I enjoy melancholic and passionate songs such as the ones by Johny Cash, The National, Tom Waits, Bright Eyes etc. 

Thanks so much for any of your tips! :)

Maybe try Anna Depenbusch...I like the lyrics! But they're probably not always easy to understand, depending on your level, since she uses idioms and puns quite a lot. But won't hurt to try :)
