Most of the time when I write a riff some cool, matching vocal pattern comes up. Then I just try to find a couple of lines that fit the pattern in the lyrics that the vocalist gives me, so you should think how many syllables you need for that pattern and write a line that has that particular amount of syllables.

I think that's the only way, really, to write a song perfectly, but to do it that way for the whole song takes a lot of time. So, if you don't feel like taking a huge amount of time to perfect the song, just try to make the lines that you already have somewhat fit the riffs (or drum pattern, for that sake).
