Another lyrical form you should consider on using is the ABAC form. While it is not conventual or popular, many great hits in the past have used this form.
Similar to the ABAB form, the A section contains the main musical theme/motif/idea. The B section is the development while also serving as the catapult to return back to the A section. Length for each lettered section is typically 8-bars long, but it can vary.
The C section is new…
Well, the C lyrics section is new, it that it is only performed once in the entire structure of the song. It can contain a bit of thematic material found in the B section (acting as B’) or being completely new.
Titles usually appear (that is, if you want to incorporate the title into the lyrics) at the beginning or at the end of the AB or AC sections.
Try playing around with this form; especially if the structure of your lyrics is to create an emotional climax.
