Writing Prompts: Song Lyrics

Updated: Jul 9, 2021

Holy, moly. These are going WAY back. I switched my website hosting and unfortunately lost all my blog posts. Wha wha. So, I'm going to continually update my site with lists and hopefully get everything all straightened out until all of my old prompts are here!

These are meant to be story starters, not the most unique ideas known to man. Most of these I came up with, but some are from movies, opening lines in books, or song lyrics. I'm giving you the start, it's up to you to expand on it and make it unique.

9 Writing prompts: Song lyrics.

  1. "We were willing, we came when you called, but then you fooled us, enough is enough..." What About Us - Pink

  2. "The club isn't the best place to find a lover. So, the bar is where I go..." Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

  3. "Hush little baby don't say a word and never mind that noise you heard..." Enter Sandman - Metallica

  4. "I wanna follow where she goes, I think about her, and she knows it..." There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back - Shawn Mendes

  5. "I am machine, a part of me wishes I could just feel something..." I am Machine - Three Days Grace

  6. "You say I'm paranoid, but I'm pretty sure the world is out to get me..." Heavy - Lincoln Park

  7. "There I was again tonight forcing laughter, faking smiles, same old tired, lonely place..." Enchanted - Taylor Swift

  8. "I admit I made mistakes, but yours might cost you everything..." Talking to Myself - Lincoln Park

  9. "Just the other day I wrote down all the things I'd say but I couldn't..." - In Case You didn't know - Brett Young

  10. "No way, I'll call the cops. If you don't stop I'll call your dad. And I hate to do this to you on your birthday. Happy birthday by the way." Party Favor - Billie Eilish (This one was added on after because my Pinterest didn't have the 10th one for some reason. *shrug*)
