I have the melody, instruments, and vocalist picked out. Then I go into Docs, and stare at the empty page for a couple hours.

If you already have a melody, you might just try coming up with words/phrases that fit the rhythm. Maybe just start with the very beginning, and try to come up with a few words that fit the rhythm. Hopefully what you come up with will have some topic of theme that you can expand upon, and then go from there. Or they could be nonsense--nonsense lyrics are a thing, and I kinda like them. Maybe the mood of the music suggests a topic or theme for the lyrics.

Honestly, I just think of a theme and write from there. The themes I choose are usually relatable to me because it's hard to write about something I haven't experienced. That's all the tips I have. Think of a theme, go from there.
