It’s rather undefinable and perhaps indescribable. We can be so attached to our music, but why? Many people will hang their lives on lyrics, but I’ve found over time that, while I *do* enjoy a good set of lyrics, especially if they mean something to me, I am far more likely to find beauty and magic in the instruments or song structure itself. And when it comes to lyrics, I usually latch on to the melody of them long before I may even know what is being sung. Sometimes I’ll discover the lyrics to a song 20 years after I first heard it. Maybe that’s why I don’t mind too much being an instrumental songwriter.
