On songwriting. Rhyming #1.


It's almost like an obsession sometimes, putting words after each other in intricate systems, and fitting them to notes and rythms. The past couple of days I have been noodling with a peculiar rhymescheme that doesn't rhyme (!) apart from the last word of fourth line and the first word of the fifth. As I went along some verses got additional rhymes, but from the get-go, my focus was flow and only that inter-rhyme, or whatever it's called. So far the song's called Let It Glow (last line of the first verse...still not sure what it means other than its referance to the disconnected hip of line eight). Have a good feeling about it, thinking it might even make it on the album!
