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.

Lost in clouds of indecision.
Feeling my way through life.
Searching for ways to clear my vision.
Wanting more but I don’t know why.

I understand that there’s more to life
Than I will ever know.
But somehow life just doesn’t fit.
Something’s very wrong.

So, I’m seeking out the ones
Who want to help me to succeed.
They have hope and certainty.
They understand just what I need.

Being taught now to notice
That answers have always been there.
Not blinded by lies and cover ups
So banishing despair.

With open mind, no illusions.
I’m willing to learn what’s new.
I can see a clearer picture now.
So choose hope and love and truth.


I need answers to my questions.
Need to feel like I belong.
Need to clear the air and learn the words
To the ‘I get it now’ song.


I’m now on track for something better
I smile more than I frown
I have answers to my questions
No need for life to get me down.

Another day is over.
The writing’s on the wall.
It’s time to stop reflecting on
The dreams that made me stand so tall.
Now I’m fully awake
And I’m standing on my feet.
From now until tomorrow
The sun will be much colder
Than the one within my dreams.

See our picture with me;
Hold it in your head.
And when the new day starts to dawn
On the painful tears that we’ve both shed,
And I’ll begin all over.
I will start to live again.
Pretend a new beginning’s here
And dream a dream for which
There’ll be no end.

So come a little closer.
Please hold my hand once more.
I’m scared to branch out on my own,
It hurts to know you’ve closed the door.
And I’ll take it upon myself
To recall what we once had.
But when I look and you’re not there
I’ll hold my breath, fight back the tears
And try not to be sad.


I love you so much that it hurts.
I feel pain in my heart.
I never knew that love would leave me
Standing alone in the dark.
Now I’m feeling so empty
And there’s nothing left to say.
So as you leave I’ll smile and wave
Then turn so you don’t see
My tear stained face.
