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 Second Person.
Second Person has the most intimacy to it, because you are talking directly to another. However, it needs to be used carefully – you don’t want it to come across like you are a dictator; you want the words to come across as conversational.
The following are words used to convey the Second Person point of view:
- Subject – you
- Direct Object – you
- Possessive Adjective – your
- Possessive Predicate – yours
So, if you want to convey the Second Person point of view, keep in mind of using those words above.
