Subject: RE: Songwriting 101
I think songwriting is a gift, like ball sense, you've got it or you haven't.
All I've learned in 39 years is this
Say the most in the least
Tell me a story
Don't look in, look out.
Don't sing meyour life, find a way to sing me mine, if I'd been a sailor, a soldier, a writer, a drunk,or maybe, if I'd been you.
Always remember you're singing for someone else, not yourself
