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.

How wide is your field of vision?
Do you see just what’s inside you?
Or see only what you’re missing
In a world that’s full of fear and endless hate?
Is your life just an illusion
That contains no rhyme or reason?
Time to look right up to the skies above.
Time to notice a world teaming with love.

So stand up and be ready to win the fight.
Rise up and see the real life that’s in sight.
Take one step at a time. It‘s your turn now to find
Your place in life, reserved with you in mind.
So, dig deep, now build your courage.
Take the next step. You have the knowledge.
If your fears you face, you can win this race.

At times you may falter. It happens to us all.
Don’t be knocked back, there is no need to stall.
Just take more steps forward than you take back
You can balance staying right on track.
Just keep moving forward and very soon you’ll see
You can reach your goal, fulfill all your needs.
You can live the dream. Be all you hoped you’d be.


Look for the beauty not the pain.
Look for the sunlight not the rain
And your eyes will open to possibilities.
Join the pathway straight ahead.
Walk with laughter not with dread.
There’ll be no defeat if you don’t retreat.
With new strength and hope now you are complete.


I have a problem that makes me feel afraid.
Running so much deeper than the choices I’ve made.
Sometimes solutions are so close, so near.
Though when life’s kept at arms’ length there’s only hurt and fear.

So I’m ready to begin to resolve this now.
Keep my distance from saying I don’t know how.
If my thoughts I begin to rearrange,
I could win this battle and effect the change.

Need to leave this problem and do what’s right.
Raise it onto a high shelf way out of my sight.
Now increase the distance between me and what’s wrong.
So, I start to believe I belong and I’m strong.

So, I’ll forgive the world, including myself,
For not fixing the hurt that so long I’ve felt.
I will value being different and take my stand
Knowing it’s OK to be who I am.

I have a problem that makes me feel afraid.
Runs so much deeper than the choices I’ve made.
Found the solution it was so close, so near.
Time to live my life without fear.


But it’s hard to begin to try to heal.
When the hurt runs too deep, it’s so very real.
Need to plant in my mind the will to succeed.
If the truth be told, I know what I need.
