After six months, I don't think you know enough about her to make a love song and not have it be cliche. Most of what you're feeling at this point is pretty common. But that's just my opinion.

But... that's super cliche. I'm not questioning your feelings for her at all. But a lot of people feel that.

But to give some advice, I guess.... talk about some things between the two of you that only she would get. Kinda like how jack johnson wrote that song about banana pancakes for his wife.

Write about vampires. I made an awesome song about them. It had love somewhere in there. I was at work and wrote if for this girl who was reading the twilight series. It was funny.

OH. Anyway, if you want to write a good love song make it funny. Maybe consider a wedding singer type song. I can give you a link. http://youtube.com/watch?v=gaPzCQPWK6I

Classic.


As I said before, I never repeat myself.

Yes, there are too many love songs out there. Hey There Delilah actually was a little different from all the other love songs. All though I don't know if you would call that a love song, considering he wasn't in love with her. But yeah, I think that is a good example of a love song that is not cliche.

Please, before you do anything, learn to use a little grammar and punctuation. Even if it's not completely correct.. anything helps lol.

But on topic.. I agree that's still pretty cliche. Me and my gf have been together almost 2 years and our relationship is still 90% cliche lol.
It's just gotta be personal.. if you could sing the song you write for her to any other girl and have it make sense.. it's not the right song for your gf, imo.
I think Warmness on the Soul by A7X, while fairly vague is one of the best love songs ever written. (Your hazel green tint eyes...) just stuff like that, that let's her know it's for her. And if you don't have a kick ass solo don't write it! Lol, anyways.. good luck with it hope that helps.. and pick up a book or something.. education these days...
I step up to da mic. Bust a rhyme about my hoes, tippin' on fo' fo's.. and someone shoots me in the face. Because rap is stupid.

o please lots of teens recon thev been through alot. and the fact you use the words super mature probly means your not half as mature as you think

with that said i did get an idea from something you said, the line "keep no secerets" sorta struck me as a good hook, perhaps you could use it to develop a song, better than going with the typical i love you so much crap.
