What I do with songs, with lyrics, and melodies… I keep them. It’s like having an old Studebaker. You always got a couple in the yard for parts.
Sometimes that happens, you use a part from an old song that wasn’t really happening for you, and all of a sudden that particular lyric or that concept works in another song.
And so you always have to keep that stuff documented and just have it in your back pocket. – Kim
