I'm pretty good at writing down my thoughts. But I can never make them into lyrics. I can create great lyrical topics, but I can't seem to fit them into a time signature of a song or make them rhyme. I just don't get it. What can I do to improve this?
Lyrics don't need to rhyme, they just need to flow. As for writing lyrics, start by writing down the cheesiest lyrics you can come up with, then just polish and polish until it gets better. If you have a better idea, move on to that. Over time, you'll improve and get better at it.
