This is a brand new one. I haven't actually written that many new songs this year. Writing is really hard. But I have discovered that if I can finish a lyric first, I can finish the song. All my life I've done it the other way 'round, and it almost never works. 9 out of 10 songs never get finished. They just become these infernal crossword puzzles that taunt me with their insolubility. I find setting words to music quite easy, whereas I find coming up with a good set of words miserably difficult. So I have resolved that I will not start writing music for a song until the lyrics are finished. Eat your vegetables.
