Thread Name: Where are YOUR lyrics written?
Subject: RE: BS: Where are YOUR lyrics written?
Back of the eyelids for me too. One of the things about the Scottish folk scene is that they do NOT appreciate any performer reading his or her song lyrics (except in Nitten of course)

The received wisdom there is that no matter how well you have memorized your words and sung them in your living room, you can expect to screw up three times in public to a greater or lesser degree before they are finally burnt into your memory. In general I have found this to be true.
