I do. I’ve been coming up with lots of lyrics lately, so this is basically a thread to post song lyrics. I’ll start with a song that I wrote yesterday:
Everybody’s a stranger in this lonely universe

Everyone puts their best foot forward then kicks you with their WORST!

These faces decked with painted smiles everywhere you turn

That laugh at the person inside as their soul just slowly starts to BURN.

But every time I’m asked how I’m doing, I’m always doing fine

So happy to be in this world full of such complacent swine

Everyone’s an ——-

Everyone’s a mother—— ——-

Can’t open up, can’t trust no one

Gonna put my head up to this gun, and pull

‘Cuz everything that everyone says is bull…

—-! They wear masks over masks, and I ain’t buyin’ it

NO WAY! I’ve dealt with this for too long, so just stay AWAY!

EVERYONE’S AN ——-, INCLUDING ME!

Everyone just wants to live a life without any fear

So when life gets too noisy, they stick their fingers in their EARS.

They say the saddest people make the best comedians,

So I guess I’m really happy ‘cuz my jokes just don’t make SENSE.

I’m feeling very troubled but I guess it’s in my mind,

‘Cuz everyone around me seems to be doing just fine

Everyone’s an ——-

Everyone’s a mother—— ——-

Can’t open up, can’t trust no one

Gonna put my head up to this gun, and pull

‘Cuz everything that everyone says is bull…

—-! They wear masks over masks, and I ain’t buyin’ it

NO WAY! I’ve dealt with this for too long, so just stay AWAY!

EVERYONE’S AN ——-, INCLUDING ME!

A life so sweet, so saccharine, until your teeth fall out

I’m sorry I’ve got no decorum, I’m just burning out.

Can’t sleep, can’t eat, can’t talk to anybody but myself,

So I’ll write down all my feelings and just place them on a shelf.

Let’s all join hands and sing some happy songs around the fire

Until we burn to ash, who knew the situation was so dire?

Everyone is broken,

They choked on all their words they left unspoken.

Can’t save them now, it’s far too late,

We never stood a chance in this cruel fate, oh no

As the water of our cold, dead tears just turns to snow…

There are so many things I wished you could have known.

Good idea for a topic! I, myself, love writing lyrics, and I’m trying to learn music so I can put them together.
This here is one of my favorites so far, but it’s a work-in-progress so I haven’t yet completed it:

” I don’t care if I’m hurt.
I don’t care if I’m lost.
As long as you’re still alive,
Baby, I’ll deal with the cost.

-

Remember when all was well?
You took my hand and then we fell.
First in love, and then to Hell.

HOW DID WE GET HERE?

-

You break my heart,
Every single day.
But if you’re okay,
I’ll put up with the pain.

So if you still need me,
There’s no need to fear.
Don’t think I’m leaving;
I’m staying right here. ”

Dedicated to my (now) ex-girlfriend. I began writing it about a month or so before we broke up.
