I've posted a few of my lyrics already in the Lyrics section (links below) so hopefully you can see I'm quite adept at it (yes, I'm blowing my own trumpet here)! I'm also in a rich vein of inspiration at the moment.  8)

One thing I would love is to hear my lyrics played and sung by someone who can do them justice. With this in mind I would love to find (a) collaborator(s) who would either like to take my songs and help turn them into reality or would like me to provide lyrics for their own music.

Feel free to answer here or message me.

I've updated my résumé... I'm still looking for (a) partner(s) in crime. Can write lyrics to tunes or provide lyrics in need of tunes (or provide lyrics AND tunes for those so inclined to turn my songs into... songs!).

I went and looked at your lyric "The One."  Very impressive I thought. 

I have numerous instrumentals that have defied my attempts to add lyrics to them.  If there are any you would like to take a crack at, contact me.  Either through this thread, or by P.M.

@hardtwistmusic I'm game! If there are any in particular you want me to have a crack at just PM me a link or I can give you my e-mail if you want to send a file.

Here is the best (imo) way to view the instrumentals.  There is a free download called "Notation Player" that plays midi (mid) and Notation (not) files.  I can e-mail notation and/or midi files with these tunes, and you can pick and choose.  Keep in mind that if the structure or sequence is not right for what you want to do, you can just let me know and I can change it.  All the measures can cut and paste to other locations. 

OR.... you can use any software that will play midi files.  The advantage of the notation player software is that you can visually see the timing and notes and orient your lyrics to the notation in real time.  I'd be happy to help with that btw. 

OR.... I could just send you mp3 files.   

Any way you want to do it. 

What I do NOT want to do is pick a song for you.  I want you working on one that YOU like, not one that I wished you liked.  It's guaranteed to work better if you believe in what you are doing.

And after you decide how you want the files, p.m. me with an e-mail address that will accept attachments. 

The reason I can't send wav files (Or other big files) is that I don't really know how to use drop box.

No problem. I'll PM you my e-mail address.


I'll try the first method and download Notation Player then - see how that goes. Although I do have Finale NotePad 2012 which I believe plays midi as well (although I'm not 100% happy with how the lyrics match up to the notes on that one).

I didn't read this carefully the first time through.  The "lyrics lining up with the music" is not a fault or weakness of your software.  It's operator error.  Whoever inputted the lyrics wasn't careful.  Your software is at least as good as the Notation Player.  Presumably, it allows you to modify and add to the midi file, and is superior.
