I am an Irish writer who lives in Scotland. I write lyrics and work with musicians from around the world to get them turned into songs. You can see some of my lyrics, and listen to the published songs, on my lyric writing website www.LyricSlinger.com

Would love to collaborate with other FAWMers on any of the lyrics that I post. And I'm always open to tweaks and changes to my lyrics to make them fit with the music

Thanks Simon, I have been feeling like I can't get any inspiration lately but somehow I still manage to write, good or bad :-)

[avatar]

Hey! I just finished up our #randomcollaborations piece - it was a blast - I hope I find an opportunity to collab with you again sometime.

@nadine

Thank you! I never listened to Faith No More but I know that they are a influence of the bands I listen to.

@oswlek

Thanks for the kind comment on "Predator", Simon. It really means a lot. I'll be back to dig through your stuff in a bit. 🙂

Btw, @jeff9 is being far too kind. The "song" was little more than a quirky riff and a couple chords before his lyric made everything start to bloom.

Hi, Simon. Thanks so much for the flattering comments on Predator and Prey. @oswlek is an amazing artist to work with.

Your lyrics are perfect! I should have something for you later this week.

Hey! We got put together for #randomcollaborations ! Let me know if there's anything you need from me - I'll take a swing at whatever you write.

@jeff9

Thank you for the kind comments about "Cranky Old Men". Glad you enjoyed it.

@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on 'A Life of Unfulfilled Dreams'!

[avatar]

Thank you for allowing me to put music to your wonderful lyric "Love And Rage" and I'll make sure I have a look at some others of yours to put music to as well. It's songs like yours that keep me coming back to FAWM and 50/90. BTW, nice website :)

@nadine

You're welcome, just keep me posted! It's such a bummer that I don't have electric guitars. Plugins are not able to create the tons of raw noise you need for these lyrics!

[avatar]

Got the lyrics, I'll start working as soon as I can. Working overtime the next couple weeks so please bear with me.
The story is pretty solid in this song. I enjoyed it.
