4♥ Four of Hearts in The Rock Songwriter’s Deck: 52 Ways to Write a Song
The Four of Hearts asks you to collect a file folder of clippings, quotes, pictures — all things that evoke something for you or inspire you in some way.
Step two: Use the clipping to build a collage. Make the most beautiful and inspiring collage that you can with the materials that you have collected.
Step three: Write a song that expresses what the collage is expressing. Try to capture the emotional tone of the collage in music. Let the quotes and images in the collage suggest ideas for the song's lyrics.
