Lyrics have always been a hard process with song writing. I notice how I get rigid and inflexible to them after they get on paper, don't really wanna change them. But I know editing can make them better. I have always felt inadequate in this arena and want to improve. I thought about a new strategy the other day.
I am going to rewrite the lyrics for a song I have been working on 5 days in a row. Maybe change things, maybe switch words around a little, but mostly keep the poem the same. I wanna see if the kinesthetic learning kicks in and takes me down a different direction. By rewriting 5 days in a row maybe my brain will see different patterns. Maybe minor changes can reshape the lyrics. A slight pivot could be could be all the change it needs. .
So this is Day #2 of the rewrite sessions. So far not much has changed but well see.
