Today we are going to talk about the different points of view (separately) when writing lyrics. It is important to be conscious of the song’s/story’s point of view because you want the intended message to come across to the audience. For example: if you want to talk about a personal subject, would you be using the word “you?” Probably not.
For this post, we are going to talk about First Person.
First Person has some intimacy to it, but can become objective. It is also used to talk to the audience about other people, depending on if using and outsider narrative.
The following are words used to convey the First Person point of view:
- Subject – I, we
- Direct Object – me, us
- Possessive Adjective – my, our
- Possessive Predicate – mine, ours
So, if you want to convey the First Person point of view, keep in mind of using those words above.
