I have been writing poetry and songs since high school, for eons , but I have not written any real lyrics since my last band went kaput, 2-3 years ago. I wrote all of our songs and recorded them in demo form for the band to hear. I have written songs for most of the bands I’ve been in. I have also done it just because it always came natural. I’d wake up with lyrics and melodies in my head… I’d ride my bike and have lyrics in my head… surf, snowboard, hike… I always had lyrics in my head
Over the last couple of years, I’ve recorded 2 CDs of instrumentals and recorded gobs of clips, but no lyrics.
I tried to write some lyrics last week after having a stupid weird dream but the words just seemed pretentious after I got done… thus, the song ended up in the round file on the floor
I don’t need suggestions on ending “writer’s block”… I could do it if I had the desire, but the passion has not been there.
Maybe it’s because I am highly successful now and have no pain in my life… hehe, speaking of ‘pretentious’.
Anyone else in a pitiful situation or musical nothingness?
