its better to do the music first, cause thats the base to the feeling the song will have, and based on the feeling the instrumental part of the song you make the lyrics.
thats my theory about it. anyway, its much harder to find a song that fits the lyrics
i hope it helps

my wife writes poetry and i tried to put a song to her prose. It is very difficult for me to do. I ended up just taking key phrases and not getting locked into the lyrics because it sounded forced. I know it can and has been done just think it takes more talent than i have

You need to get the beats going around in your head man. Like when you have something, play with it. Hum out some tunes, if you have any lyrics in the "waiting pile" then try to sculpt them together into a good sounding tune that matches the sound you are aiming for.

Good luck !

PS, Nice guitar in yer pic.
