Starting with chord changes or an existing musical track isn’t wrong; there is no right or wrong way to write a song. In fact, hits in various genres are regularly created by “topliners” providing the melodies and words that go “on top” of a musical track that is created first.Do you rework every line of lyric?
But after that original burst, challenge yourself to rework every line of lyric until it is fresh, original, and exceptional, and every melodic phrase until it is both unique and memorable. Remember … if you don’t prefer your revision you can always return to your original version.
