Default Your Method

Someone asked if you write lyrics, music, or melody first? Answers do not have to be limited to one or the other. What's your method?

....

I usually come up with a basic guitar part first and then start singing something over it. Once I'm comfortable with a melody I'll decide if I like what I'm singing about or not. I've written songs based on improvised lyrics before which saves me a lot of work. Otherwise the pain is ready to begin at that point (but what sweet pain it is.) Writing guitar and melodies are the easy parts for me.
