Lyricist (/music/lyricist)

A lyricist is a person or a group who writes words that are put to music. Lyricists include both those who wrote lyrics specifically for a piece of music (often in collaboration with a composer, or for a piece they themselves have composed, or for a piece of pre-existing music) and those who wrote poetry or prose that was not originally intended to be sung, but which was later set to music. This means that a song can have a composer and a lyricist who were not contemporaries of each other.
