Write a Song That Comes From Your Heart

One of the best ways to impress your crush is by writing them a love song. Many people like music. The better it sounds, the more they like it. They also like songs with really great lyrics. If you can combine these two elements into a song, chances are you’re going to really impress that special person you desire.

The main thing to remember is that your love song must come from the heart. You don’t have to overcomplicate this process by trying to make an epic or unforgettable slow jam. Your love song to your beau should be something that captures their attention, and it should stir their heartstrings.

Also, you don’t have to be an amazing singer or musician to pull this off. One of the biggest problems that people encounter with music is their skill level. Let me explain. Today’s world is completely immersed with millions of people who are seeking to be the next big thing.

American Idol and The Voice are two shows that totally caused this modern quest for musical fame to skyrocket among the masses. Millions of people around the nation and from around the world constantly compete to become superstars. However, only a very small few will ever achieve this status.

In the meantime, every person that sings a song or even makes a tune is being judged like they’re trying to be a star. What does this mean for you and the love song you’re trying to make? It means that your song will be judged in the same way. Also, you probably have this type of mentality when it comes to anybody’s music, including your own.

Ultimately, you should create a song that will appeal to your love interest. However, don’t make this song like it’s going to be the next big thing because it more than likely won’t. Besides, that is not your goal. Your goal is to get someone’s attention and not to become a world-renowned music star.

Write About How They Make You Feel

The best way to make a love song is to focus on your feelings. Most love songs are about feelings and experiences shared between two people. Your goal as a songwriter is to think about your feelings and then put them down on paper. This will cause your love interest to really understand how you feel about them.

If you have never written a song before, you should know the basic structure of one. Most songs have a verse, a bridge, and a hook. Those are the basic parts of a song. A verse helps to give a song substance. A hook is the heartbeat of the song. The hook is what most people remember about a song. The bridge connects the verses and the hook. When you put these elements together you get a completed tune. Sometimes it is beneficial to rearrange this order and to add other elements to your music. We’ll discuss this in more detail later in the article.

Now let’s get back to writing your lyrics. When you are thinking about how a person makes you feel, write the words onto the paper as they come to your mind. If someone makes you feel like your, walking on clouds, then write it down. If someone has your stomach tied up knots, then write it down. If someone makes you weak in the knees, you can also write this down as well. The point is to write down how a person makes you feel.

Once you get your feelings down on paper, you should arrange your feelings into coherent verses. Look at the example below:

You make me happy

When I’m with you,

It’s like playing in the sunshine

I constantly think of you,

Seems like you’ll never leave my mind

As you can see, the singer is really awestruck by this female. She makes him feel like he is playing in the sunshine when she’s around. He says that she makes him feel happy. He also lets her know that she is always on his mind. The singer is conveying his feelings.

Another trick to writing a good love song is being able to connect the feeling and emotions in a coherent way. You can listen to other slow songs to understand this point. When professional writers and singers make songs they arrange the lyrics to make sense to the average listener. They also cater the music to the listener and their age level.

This brings up the next point. If you’re a young kid trying to write a love song, it should be kind of silly and cute. Why? Because little kids should not know or fully understand about being in love and what it means to be connected to a person. Teenagers and young adults between the ages of 15 and 25, will have a different take on love. They’re going to be more serious about their feelings and what it means to be involved with someone. Teens and young adults typically have love themes related to spending money, having sex, going out, dancing, and spending lots of time together. Also, their lyrics will reflect the current values of love as defined by their generation.

People who are at least 25 and older will typically have a deeper understanding of what it means to love. Their lyrics might center on family, staying committed when your lover is dying from a disease or being faithful when your spouse is not. Remember, your life experiences, your generational values, and your current status will also influence how you create your lyrics for your love song.

Write the Music Around the Lyrics or Vice Versa

When you hear a song that you like, one or two things are going to capture your attention. You are either going to like the melody (how the music sounds) or you’re going to like the lyrics (what the music is saying). You can also like both.

The music for your love song is just as important as the lyrics. The music should have a style that appeals to that of your love interest. If you have a secret crush on someone, and you don’t know what type of music they like, then think about modern pop. This style of music appeals to the masses.

You can sometimes pick up on certain things with people. You can sometimes tell what type of music people like to listen to by the way act, look, and speak. The main thing you want to remember is that you should make music that really brings out your lyrics. Your melody should also help your love song to touch your love interest’s heart.

Think of a Catchy Hook That They Will Remember

The hook is the most important part of a song. It is the part of song that most people remember. The hook is the selling point of the song. When you make a love song for someone, make a catchy hook. The hook should get stuck in their head. This will make it hard for them to stop thinking about it. This is one reason why pop songs on the radio do well. Professionals musicians (and songwriters) have figured out what people like to listen to. They also know what appeals to people.

Your hook should sum up your song. Your hook should make your song come to life. It should also sum up your feelings about your crush. Take a look at the example below:


You can be my everything,

I will be all that you need,

You can be my everything,

Please, take a chance on me

Here is another example:

I only got one chance,

To capture your heart,

To try to convince you,

That we should never be apart

You get the idea. People like to hear words like that. That is because every person alive wants to know that they are special enough for at least one person to love forever. That is a big part of making a love song for someone that you’re crushing on. Just make sure that your hook captures their attention and that it is something they will never forget.

Be Genuine

When you make a good love song make sure you are genuine about singing the song as you mean it. Everyone might not have the singing ability but if a person does their best and they’re really truthful about what they’re saying their sincerity will come through the music.

This in turn will make the person of their affection realize that they are genuinely trying to win them over. Always, put your heart into the music and lyrics too. Again, when you do this your music will skyrocket.

Don’t Make The Song Too Long or Too Short

Make sure you don’t make your love song too long or too short. If it’s too long your love interest will probably become annoyed with you after a while and cut you off. If it’s too short they will probably don’t think you’re sincere enough about winning them over.

The point is you should make your song to the right length. Remember, you are not trying to create a big hit. You’re simply trying to let someone know how you feel about them. So, make your love song about a minute and a half. One minute and 30 seconds will be long enough for you to sing a verse, bridge, and hook.

Most songs on the radio today are 3 minutes long. Most artists make their songs in this way because people’s attention spans are very short. So, you can make a 3-minute song, but shorten it to 1-minute and 30 seconds to your crush. If they want more, then you can give them the full 3-minute version.

Finding The Right Time and Mood to Present The Song

The hardest part of this whole process is being able to perform the song for the person you like. You will have to find the right time to do this. You will also have to make sure the mood is right. If you’re timing is off or your mood is wrong, things can quickly go wrong.

You should try to gauge how your crush is doing before you sing the song. You can send it in the form of a video to one of their social media accounts. You can also post the song on a video sharing site as well. However, singing in person is the best way to convey how you feel about them. Still, most people are really into music videos and this is a great way to reach them.

Just do your best to make sure that the timing and the mood are right to present your music. If not, they probably will not enjoy what you’re doing and dismiss your advances. However, rejection is simply a part of secretly liking someone. You just never know how they’re going to respond until you let them know how you feel. By the way, if they do reject you, it’s okay. Seriously, you tried and that’s all you can do.


Anyone can make a love song for people they have a crush on. They simply have to take their feelings and then turn them into a song. This is not rocket science. Again, the song doesn’t have to be a chart-topping hit. It simply has to let the other person know that you are really interested in getting to know them better and that you want to be with them.
