L is for lyrics. As a songwriter, that is one of my specialties. I love writing lyrics that make people feel, think, and believe!  I often struggle over a piece of music for days or even weeks to find the right words to bring the song together.  It means nothing for me to continuously change a phrase or line until I feel that "ah ha" moment.  Many people are fascinated with singers. I, on the other hand, am always fascinated with the writer of those lyrics. I often question, what a person must have been going through or feeling when they wrote the words. I also question how many people will eventually be touched by a phrase that they love because it explains exactly how they felt but were unable to find the words of their own.  One of the lines from a song tBarry Manilow, "I write the songs that make the whole world sing... I am music and I write the songs!!!!!


  1. Hi CD, stopping over from the A to Z Challenge and great to meet you! Good luck with the lyric writing!

    Uh oh. I see your Word Verification (WV) is still on. I'm on a mission to rid the world of this unnecessary evil frustration! Please stop by my blog and select the How To Turn Off Your Word Verification tab and help make the world a better place one blog at a time.

  2. Thanks Stephen. I'll give it a try. I'm not that great at these kind of things.

  3. I am typically drawn to songs because of the lyrics. I am more moved by the words than the beat.
