I've recently been writing a pretty good amount of songs (mostly ska), and I don't have that much difficulty coming up with guitar parts/bass parts, etc. However, at age 14, I find that I haven't experienced enough in my life to write really meaningful lyrics. I've listened to the lyrics of Streetlight Manifesto, Reel Big Fish, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and other bands only to find their lyrics are about their love lives, their jobs, or getting completely wasted. I haven't really been alive long enough for any of these topics to apply to me. And fortunately, or unfortunately (if you look at it from a song-writer's perspective), I don't really have any teen angst that could motivate me to write lyrics (even if I did, ska lyrics aren't usually depressing or angry).

Any advice for me, UG?
Any at all?

Anything would be appreciated.

Write about something fun like a party or something. You don't necessarily have to get wasted to have a party

Good point.
Didn't really think of that (obviously).

Thanks!
