Default The songwriting thread

Okay so this is a thread I thought I would start it goes like this:
You write a song/ part of a song, and you can give CC and comments to other peoples songs ans stuff. Also you could offer to make someones songs music and post music and other stuff! =)

YAY FOR THIS THREAD *does cartwheels*
I'm attempting to write songs, but coming up with the words is actually harder than getting a good tune... any ideas??

Rhymes are good for some songs but not rhymes over and over again. =)

Question: I don't have any clue how to write any song besides a breakup/romance song which is almost the only thing on the radio now adays any themes I might try.

Are eyes meet in the hallway,
my locker slams shut
I can't stop thinking about you during class

Chorus:
But when I see you again
sitting next to me
can't seem to concentrate
When there teaching us 5+5 can't keep you off my mind

Second verse:
You have a girlfriend
but you keep flirting with me
I wouldn't call it cheating
just indeniable
just indeniable

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Maybe you love
I sure love you
but if your a liar
how should I know
your girlfriend don't like me

(Chorus)

Third verse:
I want you to know
I'm moving on
over you
You may have had me
if it were as easy as 3+3
But we don't quite equal
the same recipe

(Bridge)
(Chorus)

Fourth verse:
If you wondering where I went
Why I stopped looking at you
Just remember this
there's two people next to me

It's about time
To fix these grounded broken wings.
It must be hard to find
How bad the truth can really sting.

But don't you worry, don't you dare
I know it's just like you to care
I'm a free bird now, invincible
Not held back against my will.

*CHORUS:*
I'm gonna leave this empty shell.
At least for now, all will be well.
Yeah, I'll disown the times I fell.
I know it's hard, but I've gotta tell you
Farewell.

You never broke me.
You just held me tight instead.
The way you spoke with me
Seals up your voice inisde my head.

But don't you worry, don't you dare
When I'm stranded, you'll be there.
I won't feel down, I'll never cry
It feels unreal to finally fly.

*CHORUS*

I had too much fire.
I couldn't tone it down much more.
Now I'm flying higher.
Don't know what I have in store.

And don't you worry, don't you dare.
All this while, it wasn't fair.
It's better now, I've got control.
I think I'm finally on a roll.

*CHORUS, modified:*
I've finally left this empty shell.
I'm telling you that all is well.
Yeah, I disowned the times I fell.
It was quite a bit hard to tell you
Farewell.

*I CAN PLAY THIS ON PIANO NOW AND ALL I NEED TO DO IS STOP HAVING ALLERGIES AND LOSING MY VOICE *

This song actually is pretty good! But to make it easier to sing, you could try making all the stanzas the same length.

Oh God. I can write poetry, but only when I get a sudden burst of inspiration. And then I start thinking rhythmically/poetically and I start writing amazing lines and when I look back, I'm all like "I wrote that???" xD

I like this thread, too; I'm wondering, though, since I don't know anyone to talk to about songwriting around my place, does anybody else re-write a song into their language?
Like, I take the english translation of a song and use that to re-write the lyrics from German, or Japanese, or whatever. :3
