What song topic should I choose?

Asked by CatieDalleLydon (266 points ) September 30th, 2011 from iPhone

I am writing a song. I am very poetic about my writing. It could be about nature. I love that. I am very descriptive. Well…... help me pick a topic and I’ll greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much (:

You need to write about what makes you passionate. Like a visual artist, sure you can write or paint “for the market” or “to sell” but if you do so, you are merely showing basic skill and not your amazing talent.

So what are YOU passionate about?
Do you have a cause you follow?
Is there anything in your life you feel the world should know?

With the seasons changing you could write about death and rebirth.

I’m not sure this would translate to a topic for you but I’ve always been drawn intrinsically to music that inspires the feeling of spring, specifically the feeling of wanting to get out and see, to explore new things and go adventuring after a long cold winter (a wanderlust if you will). Honestly anything that embodies passion, I can’t provide lyrical examples for you off the top of my head but whether it be the Vienna Philharmonic or Pantera Live, for me the emotion evoked is… enveloping.

Write about being locked in a closet, figuratively. Do you get out? Does it stay dark?
