Lyrics to Geeks CD
Song lyrics are generally not poems and shouldn't be judged by the same criteria. Having said that, I really don't know what they are, but I think they should be judged by how much they make you feel when youre reading them, and then how memorable that feeling becomes later.I'm going to misquote someone I've forgotten who was quoting someone he was forgetting (and probably misquoting): "Good lyrics make you think. A good melody makes you feel.A good song makes you feel thoughts." Nice. But I prefer lyrics that can have quite a full impact on me without the music, and that's how I try to write them.
