i like to write a song based first on melody,like how the words come out,the flow i guess.then i work on a beat,or whatever music i want to go with it,see all music should be based on poetry,look at lenon,pac,all the greats.how did they do it?it dident matter,music lives in us and begs to come out.you know if your a poet,which im sure you are if your here,you know that somtimes you have to find some paper spontaniously.but look,if you think to much about how to do this or that,or am i doing this wrong,your putting rules on somthing that is meant to be natural,without cause.but do what feels good.you like to play an acustic,strum it and think of some lines to go into it,you like to rap,toss some instramentals on that cd player and press back to start the beat over to catch the next line.whatever.do what feels right,not what i say feels right.but what feels good to you.carry on.

I have always wrote the poetry or lyrics to a song first, but I'm new here and thought I might be able to help?

I was interested in chatting with anyone who has experience in adding music to poetry and making it work. When I write songs I usually do the music first, lyrics second. Does anyone have any tips? Oh, and by the way, I'm brand new to the Cafe.
Thanks :o) -M.
