wearing heart on sleeve is messy to my shirts…

I am going start compiling my ideas now for songs. I have a sketchbook or two filled with ramblings and scribbles of chords and phrases and I know so much of it is trash. What kind of themes are worthy of developing into a full idea?

Its definitley hard to equate the song idea when vamping and turning it into a song. Its equally hard taking some words and thoughts and setting it to music. It shouldnt be, but its hard to be a poet. It feels very naked and transparent to me to expose these things and not feel imitative or derivative. But then should I actually be naked while writing? Somehow I’m pretty sure they were joking.

Is every song supposed to be authentic? How do I makes something personal and turn it into something that everyone can relate to? Why does everything seem so cliche and oft woe is me? Why is my normally passable vocabulary suddenly constipated when I try to express myself? This is rock and roll lyrics 101. Welcome to it…
