Songwriting

Working Hard At Writing Songs

One of the challenges for me is comong up with new songs. I was playing the guitar yesterday, and out of nowhere came one line of words and a melody for a verse. The line was ‘Swimming against the tide.’

Now I’ve a got a whole load of ideas – the main one being to do with finding the energy and hope to keep going with something when it seems the odds are aginst you.

So I’ve got these snippets …

I don’t understand why I always have to make it hard; Growing older now, should I try to make it easy on myself

I’m getting tired now – think I’ll just sit back and go with the flow

Going against the grain, I’ve got splinters in my hands; Swimming against the tide, I’m just making waves

I’ll come back when I’ve got more …. to be continued.
