I do… but they don’t make the whole world sing. I do sometimes write of love and of special things… enough!
I used to write about events in my life but got tired of my songs being like an open diary page (hand on head in dramatic pose)… so I stopped.
These days my songs start with a phrase (whatever comes to me) sung around a chord progression and I work from there. Most are happy (an indication of my mental state, I am hoping) and quite jolly.
When you force yourself to write a song a week you have to write fast and this can lead to some interesting lyrics. I sometimes write stuff that I didn’t even know I was thinking and I don’t know what the song is about until I am finished. I am hoping that there is nothing too dark in my subconscious!
Anyway, I am writing this because I should be writing the songs… so back to it!
