I'm one line away from finishing this song, but sometimes the finish line can be deceiving. It turns out sometimes that what I thought was the finish line is not actually the finish line. I've been here before. I think it's one line, but then I find a line that works and I like it so much that I decide to keep it and throw the rest verse away, meaning I need to find another 3 lines. I don't know where this is going yet.
I find lyrics tough. I labour over them, sometimes for too long I think. You can kill a good idea by working it too much. It looses all its edges and becomes too smooth and life isn't smooth. There's a balance to strike between the initial idea and the final lyric.
