Most of the songs I've writen are just lyrics so far. I try setting them to music, but I can't seem to do it. Any tips?

Listen to a few songs by others that fit the mood of ur song. U should get a melody. The build ur chord progression around that melody. And everything should come off of the progression as far as leads and solos.
