Unless it is your intention to do so, you usually never want your lyrics to come across as boring.
As you a revising your lyrics, here are some options of edits that you can make in order to make your lyrics become less wordy, or have more variety:
1.) Delete a verse – if you have too many verses, it might sound like a story book more than a song.
2.) Make a verse a bridge – say that you want to keep the lyrics, but want to change how it is performed to make it interesting to the listener.
3.) Add a bridge, refrain, prechorus, etc. – gives a bit more variety to the structure and progression of the song.
4.) Change the inner structure of the verse – instead of the predictable structure, try using one of those “surprises” we have talked about in previous blog posts.
