Over 250 Power Words That Will Strengthen Your Song Lyrics

Some songriters consider themselves to be better music composers than lyricists.

And many think they are better at writing lyrics rather than song melodies.

But whichever might be the case, every songwriter can benefit by using "power words" in their lyrics. It can make the difference between an average song and a great song.

Stan Swanson coined the phrase "power words" as they relate to songwriters in his first book, Inspiration For Songwriters. (This book is available through Stony Meadow Publishing, Amazon.com and dozens of other online bookstores.)

Use "power words" whenever possible when writing.

Power words are strong words that demand a listener's attention.

Want a few examples?

Instead of using the word fly, use the word soar. Instead of using the word bird, use the word eagle. Instead of blue, use azure. Which sounds better? "Birds fly in a sky of blue" or "Eagles soar in an azure heaven." It's an easy choice, isn't it?

Crumble

Tangle

Ancient

Blaze

Castle
