When songwriters give songs to singers do they tell them how they want it to sound or do they just trust the singer to sing it free?

A SONGWRITER writes songs. Songs are more than just lyrics. A full-fledged songwriter writes the lyrics, the chords, and the melody and harmonies.

You’re thinking of a lyricist. Someone who just writes lyrics. And they may work WITH a songwriter or composer to flesh out the rest of the song. Either way, artists who are handed songs to sing rarely have much creative input aside adding vocal flourishes.
