So, I couldn´t find a topic, that tells about just and only about this. So if there really is already another topic, please send me a link in there, cus this theme is really important to me.

So, anyone who loves writing lyrics, or just thinks that some lyrics are amazing, or nearly everything that has something to do with the songwriting, comment here. You can but clips of your own creativity in here, and comment other´s texts.

Writing songs keeps me sane
I have serious problems talking about myself and how I'm feeling, I actually become mute. So I write it into a song instead. But if the song directly says I Feel This Way, i find it really difficult to sing it. So I write it in a round about way. Like I wrote a song about how a girl feels, then called the song Talking In Third Person. It's on the poetry board if you wanna read it to see what I mean. there's so many different things you can do with lyrics. It's great.

The notepad function on my phone comes in handy quite often.
I use that to write lyrics as the pop in my head so I don't have to scramble for pen & paper.

I've been writing songs for a long time. I once wrote one for
a girl who wanted a song about her brother. She said her singing teacher
cried when she read it. but I don't know if I believe that.

I've been writing songs since the second grade.
I haven't written anything in a while though.
I just haven't had any ideas.

I love writing songs. It's what makes me happy. I have so many pieces of paper that have lyrics on them and it's just awesome. I'm so excited to be using them soon.

One of my dream careers actually - a professional lyricist. Where i come from, unfortunately, there isn't much scope for it without also hvg a day job. Currently i'm penning a few songs for a friend who is studying music composition & needed lyrics to work with. so, i havent stumbled upon a paid songwriting job so far.

Anyone know a good website that acts like a portfolio for aspiring songwriters? kind of like those websites that feature creative advertising work by young creatives to help them get spotted?

in the meantime, songwriting is 1 of my foremost hobbies .... Smile & it gives me immense satisfaction that few things in life can

I find that having a large vocabulary always helps with songwriting.
And yes I write a lot of my own stuff, just random things that pop into my head. :]

I'm addicted to writing lyrics - I just can't help it. My problem is coming up with a melody to fit Sad

I also find that with anything I write, I need to rhyme it.
I don't know, it's just something I do or else it doesn't sound natural.
Oh well.

I love writing lyrics, sometimes I have some instrumental in my head for it. However, I can't play most of the instruments so I don't know what chords they are or anything. Except for one little song which I've been trying to get some piano for.

I've been writing songs since I was 8 years old. I mainly write about life/suicide/depression/partying/life as a 14 year old.
