Re: Need Help: writing lyrics - October 23rd 2015, 09:48 PM

How about resorting to your emotions/personal experiences to come up with a story for a song? It could even stem from the experience of someone you know. You can even listen to songs that are written to tell a story for inspiration to help you build up your own song.

Not sure if this would help you but you could write a poem first to help you develop more of an idea then transfer some of it to lyrics. Plus, lots of songs have poetry roots since lyrics tend to rhyme.

Don't be discouraged if it doesn't turn out great the first try. You can always edit certain parts of the song lyrics and rewrite it as well until it turns out how you want it. Creating a creative writing piece and it turning out perfectly the first try is very rare!

Best of luck with your song. I hope you post it in Self Expression if you do write a song because I'm definitely interested to see how it turns out.
