Writing a song... Advise? - May 8th 2012, 11:33 AM

My friend and I get together and write music sometimes (well, try to) but we have this problem with our current song.
She wrote the lyrics and I wrote the music but they don't fit and we need to change one and we love them both...
The lyrics so far go like this:
"The light of the day will guide you through, but the dark of the night will hold you.
And I'll cry and I'll cry tring to reach that place. Just to conquer the beast who haunts you.

I will hold on to everything, everything about you.
Our love will hold on to everything, everything about you."

That's verse one and the bridge... Do ya'll think that it's good enough to make a good song?


How about a kiss, Saumensh?

It's really hard to change the lyrics if they mean a lot to you both IMO. If you can change the lyrics without changing the MEANING, then do it. If you can change the music without changing the lyrics, then do that.

I think it will require some collaboration on either end. Best of luck.


"Ignore the ramblings of the ignorant, and step on or over their crumpled bodies as you make your way to the top of the mountain. Eat upon their flesh for fuel, and, through your determination and will, banish them to obscurity and a life of complacency and self righteousness that is the hell in which they live"

-Richard Safreed

I don't think that the lyrics mean anything to her... We just like them and we are in love with the melody of them

Thankyou for your help

I think you have a good start. obviously I dont know about the sounds because of the fact that i cant hear the music... haha but i think its a good start. most of my best songs start from a few good lines that turn into a song ! In fact, TONS of good songs come from little one or two line things... A bunch of the beatles songs were written around things that ringo said while high ... So i think its really good!


I wanna fly. So I do gymnastics instead.

I'll just keep holding on to what i believe and oh I believe in you. Give me the strength for the fight and the heart to believe cause I've got to believe in you. I feel so alive.

PeacewithImperfection
