Well to be honest I don't much like to give people lyrics. Mainly because after you write a full song, the satisfaction of knowing you wrote it yourself is an indescribable feeling. But I can give you some tips that will hopefully help: For following my strategy, here's what the first thing is: Identifying what your song is to be about.
Now some people will tell you "You shouldn't think about it. It should just naturally come to you". But if your like me, that is almost impossible. You have to be either really talented, or really lucky for that.
But anyway, I like to write these same kind of songs. So here's what I do. Right after I get off the phone or something from talking to my girl, and I have butterflies or maybe we didn't have a very pleasant conversation and I'm a little downI try to take those emotions and translate them into lyrics.
Now I'm sure if you've personally asked anyone else they might have told you something along those lines. Seems pretty vague right? This strategy that I use revolves around brainstorming. See my problem is that I think of these sweet lines but I can't make them rhyme.
I've also heard "If it rhymes then it's cheesy". But think about it Do you know any songs about love that don't rhyme? Or at the very least that are popular? Anyway, just pull out a piece of paper and pencil, or open a Word document, and just think of as many phrases that have to do with your song title as possible and write them all down.
Doesn't matter if they're good or not. Just write all of them down. When you feel you have a sufficient amount of material, start narrowing down to what you think is best. Doesn't matter at all at this point if they rhyme.
Now once you narrow down to what you think is best, start switching and changing words here and there to make it rhyme. You can even add stuff as you go along. Before you know it you'll have a full song. I'm not an amazing lyricist. And since the lyrics don't just "come to me", this strategy has worked so well to improve my lyrics.Mar 12, · Best Answer: Well are you wanting to write just the lyrics or music?
