If you have either the joy or pleasure of remembering your days in kindergarten (I don’t so much), you will probably recall the activity of “Show & Tell”
The idea is that you first show the class the really cool object that you have, and then you tell the story behind it.
Doing this in your lyrics when songwriting can help a lot!
While we may be tempted to “tell” first in our lyrics by coming strait out of the canon by saying how we feel, what happened, etc., but it is wiser to “show” first in order to enhance the depth of what you eventually will tell the audience.
So, in summation, use descriptive and creative imagery before hitting with you “punchline” of tell the audience what you are trying to get at.
