Unused Song lyrics fuse music to your lyricsHere are unused song lyrics for your music. Songwriters, you have an opportunity to write music to unsigned lyrics. If you feel you can sell your finished song, sign a fair collaboration contract and give it a try. The lyrics on this page will be switched regularly with new lyrics or lyrics from my lyric bank so check back regularly for different unused song lyrics. Most of these unused song lyrics are lyrics that mean something.

I write lyrics now and again when I have something to say about a subject or inspiration hits. Often, when I write, my initial title becomes a line in the song. Don’t be surprised if your lyric title idea changes as you write and refine your lyrics. My initial lyrics are often written within a couple of hours. When I analyse what I’ve written, another phrase may just jump out and consolidate the lyric idea, forming a new title. A word of caution, don’t change a word or phrase that already says what is meant perfectly. Sometimes, writing lyrics takes a great deal of thought and other times the words flow quickly. However, it will usually take looking at the lyrics again for another 24 hours or more; changing words or phrases as you go. 

Watch out when you write lyrics to stick to a rhythm. Could be 3 or 4 beats per line. Music will follow easily if your lyrics fit a rhythm perfectly. Learn how music can be written to closely support the meaning of lyrics. That said, when fusing the lyrics to music, you will constantly be tweaking the order of words or changing contractions back to two words from one. Remember to choose chords thoughtfully for more impact. If your completed song evokes emotion, your attention to detail has worked. Sad rap lyrics need a core melody that reflects the emotion of the words. Keep it simple. A good place to find ideas for lyrics is in the news.

Just like the timeless wind blowing through the trees.
My heart’s the softest drum whispering on the breeze.
I gaze into the void wondering why my thoughts seem loud.
Drowning out the silence of the ever growing crowd.

You sigh a sigh so deep that the ocean moves in waves;
Washing up on the shore with every breath you take.
Waiting for time to lift a voice with words so right,
Over the silence bringing comfort to your mind.

I strain to listen through the darkness of the night.
Casting out unspoken feelings weighing on my mind.
I know you’re out there somewhere.Where I could not say.
Drifting, waiting, saving your secrets till the perfect day.

Place me in the depth of your dreams.
Let me know where I can find you.
Close the distance that’s between us.
Give me a chance to know you.


Speak to me in words unspoken.
Shout it out above the trees.
Speak to me with silence broken.
Share with me the life you lead.


Can I still hear the silence when I’m asleep at night?
Do I notice everything when nothing is in sight?
In my dreams do I watch without ever really seeing?
Can love make me invisible to every other feeling?

Void of all emotion climbed the stairways of my heart
Choosing to reflect on a life that somehow meant to start
Revealing all of the secrets that belong inside my head
When I always meant to walk away from where I dared to tread

Do I lose all sense and reason when I focus on a single face?
Crashing down defences keep my plans away from every place
Walking away from thoughts that block my vision of the future
Daring to believe it’s right to take my dreams much further.

Though shadows follow closely behind my every step
I’m destined for the feelings that control the thoughts inside my head
So I take careful steps to walk on solid ground not sand
Looking for the reasons to reach out and take an empty hand.

Longing for acceptance in every step that I may take
Trying to make sure that if I bend I’ll never have to break
Emerging from the comfort of the days that went before
Reaching out for what’s behind both sealed and open doors.


Still I see your eyes each time that I close mine
I can’t see a sunset without seeing your face in my mind
I’m losing all the loneliness that made me feel I wasn’t enough
Could this be how two hearts know that they’re in love?
