GIVING THANKS

Thanksgiving,.OK !! As a songwriter what can I really GIVE that means anything in my songs? How about brutal honesty,.like, if I'm overweight can I write about it so it might help other overweight people,.Drug addiction, anger, trouble with the law, sex hang ups,. ?How about JOY,. Can I sing about being in love in a real vulnerable way as a man to exhibit sensitivity and tenderness,.can I sing about the joys of passion that overrides carnality, Can I use language in my songs that touch the unspoken, those little secret things we are terrified to talk about ,.can we honestly sing about God revealing that we really don't know a damn thing about him except what we've been told..Yes!! Let's make it a thanksgiving of honesty,.lets be honest songwriting turkeys..Gobble,.not Gubble.
