What’s the difference between the songwriter and the lyricist?

Maybe I’m naive but I thought they were the same thing.

Or is the songwriter the composer of the song and the lyricist just comes up with the lyrics?

That, I’d understand.

Help me understand!

That’s it. The lyricist writes the words. The songwriter writes the entire song. The composer writes the music.
