That way the timings set. Just strum the guitar and start making up rhyems. Keep track of ones I like. I drive a truck so with the melody in my head I'll sing for hours while I drive. Usually have the song done by the time I pick up paper and pen.
Ocassionally do it different though. Wrote "perfume and kisses" lyrics first.
Had subject for song. 2 men were forgiven a debt. Who was more gratefull? Wanted to writesong on it for months. finally it all came fast.
At a rich mans house Jesus went to eat
A sinful woman came and laid at his feet.
Simon thought with such a woman
He shouldn't be caught dead.
Jesus looked at simon and said.
Two men owed money one a little one a lot
Who was more grateful when the debts were forgot
Simon said Jesus I guess the one who owed more
Jesus said yes of this you can be sure.
His feet were washed with her feet and dried with her hair
It was a heart felt response to how much he cared
She did so much cause of the life she had led.
Yet Simon you didn't even put oil on my head------
Perfume and kisses she stayed at His feet
The love that He showed her was pure and complete.
Perfume and kisses tears and her hair
In response to being forgiven and shown that he cared
Shown that he cared
Shown that he cared.
Play around and find what works for you.
Writting comes easy to me but by working on it lyrics get better.
Music is harder for me but working on it makes me improve there too.
2 Tim 1:6 Fan into flame the gift of God.
NIV study Bible says Our gifts are not given in full bloom but are rather developed through use.
In other words Practice, Practice, Practice.
