But, lyrics. They escape me for some reason. I know with practice it will become easier and what not.
Do any of you write lyrics? What inspires you? In the music you listen to, what is it about the lyrics that excite you?
having re-read your your original post, i would say a love of lyrics is the place to start. if you like a good lyric, you will have your favorite writers and you will know what you like about them. you will try to express things in a way that is just as effective.
