    [Music] want to help me write a song?

    I want to write a song but truthfully I am not very musically inclined. I can strum many guitar chords decently but picking is an issue and time is an issue. Just wondering if anyone wants to help me write a song.

    ok i want it to be about heartache. I want some lyrics to be something like

    I wait for you
    you don't show or tell
    yet I wait for you

    If you want to know the back story to help with lyrics I will gladly tell.

    Meh, threw this together in 5 minutes.


    I'm still waiting for you.
    Even after, all these years,
    Even after, all these tears,
    I'm still standing here, on the other side,
    Of a one way mirror.

    (chorus)
    Watching and waiting,
    For you.

    You don't show or tell,
    I don't know if you know.
    But I can see you,
    You see right through me,
    How did I let this grow?

    (Chorus)
    Watching and waiting,
    For you.

    Part of me hates this game,
    All I can do is wait for you,
    Watching and waiting,
    Will you ever see me,
    Will you ever be, with me?

    (Chorus)
    Watching and waiting,
    For you.

    You look me right in the eyes,
    But I can see you don't realise,
    I'm here, for you.
    I know it can't be more,
    I can't move away from your door,
    Yet,
    I wait for you.

    (Chorus)
    Watching and waiting,
    For you.

    All you need is 4 chords, mate: E, B, C# & A



    This one will also come in handy:

    haha, nice, so far I am using only 4 chords, just not those 4. I am just matching up lyrics to chords at the moment. I will record it when I am done and youtube it for everyone (I can't sing BTW)

    Make sure those chords fit. Want it to sound beautiful, and bright? Use some open Major Chords. Want it to sound beautiful, yet melancholy? Throw in some good open Minor Chords! One thing I think people realize, but don't truly understand, is that you've gotta match the music with the feel of the lyrics. Some songs do an excellent job of this, just look at "Wish You Were Here", by Pink Floyd... (actually almost all of Floyd's songs have the music and lyrics match up perfectly) to the contrary though, "Today" by The Smashing Pumpkins is basically a song about suicide, yet it sounds so incredibly gorgeous, minus Billy Corgan's borderline annoying voice.

    Someone did something similar to that 4 chord song. Also does that dude really have a triforce tattoo in the second video? lol
