    its different for everyone... i usually do the music first because then when i write i have a fixed rhythm to follow... others may prefer to write first to know wat feel they must get into the music...

    Hmm...for me its both. I normally, write lyrics only when im feeling something strong. So naturally, i dun have music ready then, so i just have a free write. Then i come back and add music to it. Otherwise, if im working on something during that time, i try to fit the lyrics to the music. So, both for me.

    For me, its always been lyrics as i find lyrics cum naturally, yet the music and rhythm take too much time....... i have more lyrics under my belt than i do music......

    wotever comes first to me...
    some times wen music comes first, it usually remains music, unless it was a chrd i prefer to write lyrics first wen i'm in a mood to write a song n not another instrumental..

    that is exaclty what happens to me....the music just remains a music ....which generally evokes a certain strong me..but at times am not it leaves me confused as to what kinda lyrics i should be putting in.......its bloody confusing.....some times i start wth lyrics and end up with there a difference ??.....

    not exactly.. i prefer to keep it music only at those times, otherwise i like figuring out unusual/wierd sounding chrds n then the words sometimes just flow out of the mouth..

    Letme give you an example.. Listen To Lines In The Sand in Once In a Live Time.. I would like to hear the Music go on and on forever.. But when it comes to Patience or Dont Cry, I would not understand the lyrics but would like it to go opn and on.. BUT Ultimately songs like Holy Wars, SHould NEVER END.. cause it has amazing Lyrics and Music..
