So I have my chord progressions down for the whole song. But i cant seem to come up with lyrics for it. Im actually writing it for my girl to suprise her. How long does it usually take to write lyrics?
Well I think it's hard to get a really specific answer but last night I wrote a poem sort of thing and it was 3 stanzas and I spent about an hour and a half. I think in Anthony Kiedis's book (Scar Tissue) he said he would often spend 9 or 10 hours writing lyrics, although he didn't specify if he finished it or did bits of multiple ones.
Yeah, it's tough to say. Some lyrics I've spent weeks on. Others can come within an hour.
