Just sort of an open ended question from someone who reecntly started writing lyrics for real. Do you find it difficult to come up with lyrics that aren't cheesy? Do you come up with the lyrics or compose the tune first? What type of songs are the easiest to write? (eg love songs, emo songs, hate songs, etc). I have typically found that coming up with meaningful lyrics can be a challenge, but when it clicks, it clicks. Often I will have writer's block for a while but then hit an idea and write an entire song in 10 minutes. Also, since my brother and 2 friends are in my band, I tend to avoid "pouring my heart out" about all my deep inner feelings to prevent embarrassment and looking like a sap. Perhaps this inhibits my lyrics quality. Anyone else do the same? Anyway, how is your general songwriting experience?
