How do you write songs?

I want to start writing songs an I don't play any instruments but I sing and I don't know where to start.

Well, first learn an instrument or to sing. You're putting the cart WAAAY before the horse. Patience, young grasshopper. If you have some lyrics you like, maybe find a songwriting partner. Otherwise, get a copy of "Songwriting for Dummies" for a crash course.

Learn an instrument and play something that sounds good on it, then make lyrics for your riff.
Also you could just imagine instruments in your head to write a song

What you just wrote is the opening line to at least 20 songs. all you need is the melody to go with it. ANY words can be a song. The alphabet song is just "twinkle twinkle little star"

songs are like poetry, but with songs you can be a lot simpler in word choice yet complex in meaning. with poetry, it's a bit rigid as in if you don't use the right words, it ruins the poem... it ruins the feel of it. concentrate on making the audience feel a certain way when writing.
She'd waltz across dreamlike paintings,
and as their colors fused, her shadow
Smeared the canvas, but her footsteps
followed the rhythm of falling rain

1. there has to be a theme throughout the song. so it makes sense. 2. it doesn't have to rhyme. here, in this poem, you can see that the use of PAUSES at certain places makes up for the fact that there is no alliteration, onomatopoeia, rhyming, and so on... you can do that with singing. any sentence can sound like music if sung correctly, but try to make it... artsy 3. look at other songs... study every small aspect of them

Get a piece of paper and write the lyrics down that are in your mind, then put it into a rhythm
