But when I don't have a hook to build from I tend to write the music to a song first, and add the lyric later. This can be a problem. I'm hard to please when it comes to writing my own lyrics - for me, the line between too cheesy and too obscure is very fine indeed. It's an aspect of my songwriting I really need to improve, and so for this next song I'm going to try writing the words first, away from the music.
I don't think I've tried setting words to music since I was doing my A-Levels. It might work; it might be a total disaster. WE SHALL SEE!
