Can songwriters write lyrics to fit a given piece of music?

Yes, lyrics can be written to an existing melody. It is done all the time. For the lyricist it provides a strong framework on which to build. Essentially for many songwriters when they write the second or third verse to a song, they are in reality writing lyrics to an existing melody. http://learnhowtowritesongs.com/writing-your-own-songs/

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Part of your job as a lyricist or a songwriter is to ‘get inside the heads’ of the characters in the songs you are writing. You need to be able to express what they are feeling, what is real to them, and to out that into words. Remember that the words that are streaming from your heart and your pen will be coming out of a performer’s mouth someday. Visualize your characters and write from their perspective.
