Writing Lyrics.

June 17, 2007

I’m working on an acoustic song right now.  So far it is mediocre at best.  But in the middle of writing the lyrics I had a thought.  I think writing lyrics is intellectual nudism.  You have have an exhibitionist streak to be willing to take these thoughts and melodies, attach extremely personal words, and then put them in front of those willing to listen.  Which is why most of my songs end up becoming highly dramatized, third person stories.  I don’t want people that close to my heart.


  1. That’s why I only deal with instrumental music… I think you can say much much more with notes and keep the message as blurry as you want

  2. maybe you should record it and let us listen to it on youtube or google video or something
