I'm not advocating glib or bland lyrics but I find lyrics pitched beyond the scope of A level Lit. usually sound pretentious.
- bang on mate !!
I used to sing in a band write loadsa lyrics etc etc
then as happens, the band fell apart & carried on writing songs that just got blander and blander
eventually just got into music production (hey and actually earned some money)
- now in my early 30s, If I sit down to write lyrics - I sit down, and well thats as far as I get ..
cos hey - I havnt got anything to say !
when your young you've got plenty to say and belief in your perspective, that youthfull vigour can often be worth much much more than "matured" elequent writing, from the eyes of someone whos seen to much of life.
If this was my thread it would be entitled
Lyric writing - how can I get back to 6th form ?
