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.

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.

I know sometimes I talk more than I listen
For that I hope you’ll accept my apology.
I know that sometimes you get really angry
If I’m not who or what you want me to be.

But you know I love you more than words can say
I need to say it now so that you won’t walk away
You will never know just how much you mean to me
So I’m telling you now so that you can really see


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?


I want to live in a world with no borders and divisions.
With no rallying religious leaders and no bickering politicians.
Where the shade of every thought reflects the beauty that surrounds us.
With no conflicts full of hatred and no-one to scream abuse at us.
If we care about this earth and the people living in it
We’ll be content with simple things not the wealth in our pockets.

Living for what I know is right for you and not for me.
Foreseeing the world’s future as a stream of possibilities.
I long for impartiality that’s what we all live for
It’s about peace and security, not drowning innocence in pointless wars.
There’ll be no retribution ‘cause I’ve learned to forgive.
Letting go of every hurt; focus on life yet to live.

Looking so much deeper so I see the wood for the trees.
We can live together unselfishly not just doing as we please.
Quantify our future in terms of love and emotional treasure
Not living for ourselves and a life of constant leisure.
Stacking up the friendships for a future life that’s real
Realising what the world can be if we allow ourselves to feel.

Living for humanity not the world that only I can see
Seeing every member of the human race as a member of my family.
Removing pointless barriers from the world becoming one.
Caring about who I really am for the sake of everyone.
So I’ll muster up the courage to bolster up the world.
Watching, hoping, waiting till a peaceful world unfolds.


Wash away the violence and all the hurtful trash.
Wash away the need to hoard a heap of cash.
Wash away the problems. Wash away the strife.
I see the bigger picture and for the whole world I want life.
Not involved in all the hatred. I’ll flee from all the crime.
Won’t generate or contribute to divisions in a world of minds.
