Hello everyone, I have written quite a few song lyrics mostly before and during the class as things got real hectic after with work and the intro to guitar. I would like to post some lyrics that I cant seem to put music to.  I started off with intro keyboard part in my head that is in Em(similar to journey's worlds apart) then going to D or C which I realize is not the general progression of Em but I couldnt find any G#/A, B chords on my guitar that fit the words. I can also hear a finger picked version in my head on those same chords that seems to work till I try to pick it and cant lol. anyone is welcome to collaborate and help I just ask if you change something either reply here or message me directly. Thanks in advance

Picking car up after repair waiting on the bill

Hello Everyone, My name is Derrick. I have been playing guitar off and on since I was 16-7 I took a few lessons back then. I didnt have the drive to keep going but every so often people would ask me to play and I would.  Though I never could keep rhythm and eventually I used that as an 'excuse' to quit pursuing it.  I always wrote lyrics but could never tie them to music. then enter coursera, some 20 years from the time I started playing. while it helped bridge the gap.  now I am hoping to write for myself and possibly in the future for others but right now I have to focus on me.  I also started the introductory course on guitar mainly to see if I could learn something. and in the first lesson it hit me why I couldnt keep rhythm I never used a metronome. back the day I didn't think I 'needed it'.  Obviously I was wrong now hopefully I can get that on the right track to help me write songs.
