Cher's, "Believe"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I need love to feel strong
Why They're Nonsensical:
She needs love again??? I thought the whole basis of the song was her ability to keep going without that particular part of her life.

Cher's, "Dark Lady"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Then I remembered her strange perfume,
and how I smelled it once in my own room.
Why They're Nonsensical:
She once smelled strange perfume in her room, but that alone didn't make her suspicious?? It only struck her as significant once she realized whose perfume it was??

Cher's, "Half Breed"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
My father married a pure Cherokee
My mother's people were ashamed of me
The Indians said I was white by law
The White Man always called me "Indian Squaw"
Why They're Nonsensical:
Actually, the Cherokee are a matrilineal society who would readily accept the mother and child. The father might be asked "Who the hell are you, pale face?"

Cher's, "One By One"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
We're gonna love one another 'til morning comes
Why They're Nonsensical:
Only until the morning? That's some fickle love going on there, unless this is some sort of euphemism for either a one-night stand or escorting.

Cher's, "The Power"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
A poor man dreams but no one hears
Ain't nothing changed much through the years
Why They're Nonsensical:
Well of course no one hears when somebody is dreaming, and is it supposed to be possible over a period of time???

Cher's, "The Way Of Love"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Then what will you do when he sets you free, just the way that you said goodbye to me?
Why They're Nonsensical:
This line contains the word "you" three times. The first two instances are Cher asking her audience for breakup advice, but the third time it directly addresses the guy who left her. Not very consistent!
