So I was wondering when you`re making a song, do you write all the lyrics first and then compose a tune to suit those lyrics or do you do it the other way round?

Whichever you're more comfortable with. But when/if I write songs, they come to me at roughly the same time. If the words are for example, a syllable too much, I just change the words but still keep the melody.

I used to be in a two-piece band, I would write the lyrics, then he would do the music based on what I'd written

Well I do both at the same time.
Lyrics and melody for the lyrics. It's impossible for me to do it the other way.

It really depends from song to song. For one (song), you might come up with the idea of a good melody which you have to write lyrics around, while other times you write the lyrics first and create a melody that fits with the lyrics. Either way is valid. It's just what happens.
