    Default Songwriting & Writing music

    Well i've recently started songwriting as i'm thinking of starting a band (I play guitar) . I've learned something already, songwriting is actually quite a hard thing to do but, I think i've come up with some reasonable lyrics. These lyrics are aimed at the alt rock/metal genre. I've only come up with the lyrics so far, but hopefully when I can record from my guitar to my pc there should be some stuff that you can hear. Anyway here are the lyrics, see what you think.

    Verse
    There was a time,
    when I was free from
    All this pain and suffering,
    but now it seems that i'm stricken
    And can't find an end to all this grief.

    Chorus x1
    I can't find my place
    I can't figure out
    how to grasp my goal
    and replace this ever blackening hole.

    Verse
    I'm reaching out for help
    but all you seem to do is push me
    back to a dark place that I cannot break
    and it's killing me trying
    but I know I gotta keep fighting.

    Chorus x2
    I can't find my place
    I can't figure out
    how to grasp my goal
    and replace this ever blackening hole.
    which my soul once fulfilled!!! (2nd time)

    Verse
    This disease I feel inside
    Is destined to leave
    now that i've found my absolution
    from what once was a stronghold of tribulation.

    Chorus x2
    I've found my place,
    I can feel the fortitude
    developing in my soul
    so now I can reach my goal.
    I've found my absolution!!! (2nd time)

    Comment and criticism is welcome

    That's quite good i'm listening to my favorite bands (there in the genre that the lyrics are written for) to try and influence my musical writing and that has now been added, cheers .

    Nice lyrics, but you should sort a chord progression first, I'm in a band writing original material, and Ideally a set of lyrics fit the music, not the other way around. what style of music will it be played to?

    what he means is make up the chords for the song. he does this in his band before they do lyrics. chords are the base of your song, then the lyrics. you sort what key, all that stuff. have you researched it E.G google?
