I have not been able to give your lyrics the time they deserve. Can I suggest that you use your song writing ability to provide you with an emotional outlet and keep it as a hobby? This would save you months of getting the run-around from publishers, etc.
I can't recall how I came across this letter, however it is a classic. It also saved me from paying the postage on the notebook of songs I've been writting in the hopes of one day having my life imortalized through the dulcet tones and drum solo of Philip Collins.
