If the foundation of the song is a well-defined structure, the building blocks are the words. Not just any words will do. The words that you use should be ‘associative words’, words that connote specific images and meanings. Before you write the first line of your lyric, hold a brainstorming session to come up with associative words, provocative phrases, etc. all of which lead to the title concept.
