I’ve written songs since I was 13 and still sometimes I feel like I’m just starting to figure how to write lyrics.
It evolves, music evolves - but for the most part, there is still a “craft” to it that I revere. Nothing is more satisfying to me than “getting a lyric right.” Words are powerful and when chosen wisely fueled by inspiration, they can be eternal. So I do not take words lightly.
