Thread Name: Improving Lyrics?
Subject: RE: Improving Lyrics?
If anyone has ever read anything on the art of song writing, they will be familiar with advice that says that clarity is very important.
Budding song writers are told even if they have a favourite line in a song, it must be cut if it doesn't do its job properly.

"That was long before we found the box" has a romantic quality to it BUT it is not a good line - being ambiguous and lacking clarity.

It has to go!!!
