Lyrics Shmyrics

If one wishes to sing words to music, it helps to have those words thought out, written down, and available for recording. These words can be written on a piece of paper or on an electronic device, either is appropriate. As of this moment, I can confidently say that I'm behind on that...

I do have periods of time where I write lyrics more often than not. It doesn't always depend on actively working on a particular project, but it does help with the motivation. I've been writing more in general over the past year, which is a good thing, but it does force me to decide what I'm going to work on. Currently, I am writing for my personal blog, this blog for a "blogging the album" series, and also lyrics. Any other writing I may or may not be doing is strictly top-secret. However, you may be able to tickle it out of me.

Don't despair my friends! There are quite a bit of lyrics already written. Some of them are for specific songs and some are just existing in a vacuum. Much like I mentioned in the prior paragraph, sometimes it's just good to write thoughts down and move on without any motives. The future has a funny way of changing perceptions and giving use to what seemed useless.

With the third Diads album, it's a bit of a mixed bag. I know I will need to start recording vocals soon for the songs that will need them. My schedule demands it. I must progress. It wasn't until the past two weeks that it really hit me. I better get to work on lyrics for the songs that need them. NEED obviously being an opinion I hold.

So, I shall be directing a percentage of my focus on this until I've accomplished the objective.

That is all for now.
