  1. Well said. I quite understand. 

    Having been a poet for nearly half a century, I am comfortable with words and feel them deeply. However; I struggle with expressing myself with my guitar. While I love to play, and perform in my band, it's just not my paradigm.

  2. Interesting comments. it seems to me that many of you hear the music in your head, and live in that milieu. I live in words in my head. I don't need the music to be the impetus, but it does finish the 'sculpture' for me.

    I must be a rank amateur, Gravity, as inspiration is a beautiful, colorful, rewarding, encouraging, revelatory, arousing, and illuminating thing for me. But not everyone can have your genius.

    Tom, thank you for your thoughts. I do mean LYRICS, not SONGS. 

    I learn from your thoughts and comments, thank you all.

  3. What is it that makes you actually sit down to write lyrics? For me, I've learned there are a few things which seem to change my brain waves. Or at least cause me to feel different, an altered state. First is music. I've come across songs that simply induce a need to express myself. This Doors are one. Listening to The End does it. Similar psychedelic music seems to have that same power. But not just that genre. Also, art can do this. As simple as this may sound, I do a google image search of strange art, or something equally odd, and bring up pieces that stir my brain. The effect is amazing.

    Do you have something like this?
