Without knowing what your song is about or what you've written so far, it's hard to provide any specific help. However, if you're having trouble, the following suggestions might be of some use!
How Do I Write A Song?
Writing a song can be quite a daunting prospect at first. Sometimes it's hard to know which to begin with - the lyrics, or the music?
The good news is that there's no definitive answer to this; you can work in whichever order you'd prefer. If you have a tune in your head, start with that and write the lyrics afterwards. It's also fine to start with the lyrics and then put them to music. Remember, it doesn't have to be perfect the first time. Writing something is better than writing nothing, and you can always edit and revise it later!
What Should I Write A Song About?
Again, there's no specific answer. You can write about whatever you like! The beauty of writing, be it music or prose, is that you have the freedom to write about whatever you want. If you're having trouble getting started, here are a few tips that might help:
- Write about something important to you. All the best songs are emotionally charged; you can feel the musician's passion when you listen to them.
- Try to avoid sitting down at your desk and thinking 'I'm going to write a song,' as this is likely to give you writer's block.
- Get a change of scenery. You could go for a walk, or even just sit in your backyard. If you carry a notebook with you wherever you go, you'll be ready if inspiration hits.
- Think about your favorite songs. What do you like about them? Is it the tune or the lyrics? Whichever it is, try writing that first.
