    Something I've done since I was a kid is to write lyrics to whatever music happens to be playing in my head. I'm no musician, but I love to jot down words just for the hell of it. Sometimes, I re-write Sammy's VH lyrics as what I think Dave may have written. Trying to write like DLR however, is like trying to play guitar like EVH. You end up feeling inferior no matter what. To be honest, my lyrics suck, but I was just wondering if anyone else out there had some they would like to share??

    Yeah I like to think of myself as a fairly creative person and I do write lyrics that I'll sketch down in my notepad or where ever. I like to write in my spare time and I even remember jotting down a few lyrics to Baluchiterium just for the hell of it. I heard Sam was unable to write a decent lyric for the song so I gave it a whirl.

    I'd love to be able to write like Dave. Some of his stuff has taken me years to figure out. My own shit just comes out as being non-sensical. Check this out, it's about two hours old.

    It's all about expressing yourself and putting pen to paper. If your writing was to come out like DLR's it would probably be a bit contrived so that's OK. Afterall their's only one DLR. Just getting your thoughts and ideas down is all that matters.

    yeah i write lyrics for a hopeful future album of mine. i hear a song on the radio and put my own lyrics to it. then i get home and write them down, but it just doesn't look right. i haven't written any lyrics in a while. i try to right lyrics that nobodys seen. i usually get a couple of lines and then lose it. i subscribe to the JIMI HENDRIX method of jotting down lyrics no matter where i am.

    I hear you guys. That little "poem" or whatever that is I posted, was just a comment on a conversation I was having with someone today about child-molesters. I was just saying that castration IMHO is "favorable". Didn't mean to get all serious here... I'm really curious to see what lyrics Dave would (does) have up his sleeve for a new VH album. Can't fucking wait!!!

    topik killer,
    Trying to learn how to write "meaniningless pop-songs"? I suggest picking up anything by Third eye blind, Matchbox twenty, Creed, oh fuck, just turn on your radio, man.

    You got one over me All Soup. I couldn't write a lyric to save my life.

    Your ditty there actually seemed a little "Cherone-ish" (no offense)

    hey ASNF, i actually like THIRD EYE BLIND's first album.

    the songs i write have no chorus.

    i think that was the problem with VH3,
    no real catchy hooks.
