Unlocking the Mystery of

'Taking Your Lyrics Somewhere'

From: Melanie Naumann

For songwriters who aspire to weave meaningful lyrics,

Imagine crafting lyrics that not only tell a compelling story but also resonate deeply with your audience, creating impactful songs without the distress of writer's block, the struggle to express your emotions, or the worry about your songs finding their listeners... might find something valuable here.

Here's an insight to ponder:

During a coaching session, a fellow songwriter once asked,

"If you could give me just one piece of advice, what would it be?"

I shared my perspective, saying:

"Consider telling a story with your lyrics. Take your lyrics somewhere."

Why this advice?

Because when your lyrics embark on a journey, it can be an effective way to express yourself, to create songs that touch listeners' hearts, and to turn your lyrical ideas into finished songs that resonate deeply.

In simple terms – it might be a beneficial approach if you're seeking more depth, meaning, and impact in your lyrics without the constant worry of finding the "right words for the music".

Plus, this advice could be particularly helpful for those who wish to avoid getting entangled in songwriting technicalities and prefer a clear, potent method of expressing their inner world through their songs.

'Taking the song somewhere' has proved to be a powerful approach for many, regardless of where they are in their songwriting journey.

The concept of 'Taking the Song Somewhere' = Telling a Story in Your Lyrics is appreciated by many industry greats and has been adopted by celebrated artists like Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Ed Sheeran, Miley Cyrus, and many more.

Embrace the Potential of Storytelling in Songwriting for Impact and Success

Consider the journey of countless songwriters, quite possibly like you, who have charted record-breaking hits and albums. They attribute their success to the compelling power of storytelling in songwriting. Here are some of their insights on the influence of narratives within songs:

Bob Dylan

"A story in a song is a world within itself. The words in the verse should serve as the brush strokes of a painter, inviting listeners into that world, making them see through my eyes."

Paul McCartney

"To me, a song should tell a story. It can be abstract, it can be literal, but it should paint a picture. That's what keeps the listener engaged. That's what we aimed for in The Beatles and it never changed for me."


"In my songs, I tell stories that move me. It's like turning my diary entries into music. The power of storytelling in songwriting is that it allows me to express my deepest feelings in a way that people can relate to."

Ed Sheeran

"I write songs about real things, real stories. For me, music is about sharing those stories, and when people connect with them, it's an amazing feeling."

Dolly Parton

"Telling stories through song has allowed me to share the tales of my life and those around me. Each story has the power to connect us, to remind us of our shared humanity. That's been the secret of my success."

Paul McCartney

"Every great song has a great story to tell. It's about bringing the listener into that story, making them feel what you're feeling, and taking them on a journey. That's the power of storytelling in songwriting."

Leonard Cohen

"I have always believed that if a song doesn't tell a story, it is merely a noise. And who wishes to be a mere noise-maker?"

Elton John

"When Bernie [Taupin] gives me a song, I'm given a story to tell through my music. We've connected with millions by telling these stories."

Taylor Swift

"Songwriting is storytelling, you're telling a story in 3-4 minutes. What's special is that each listener can relate to it and make it their own. It's like a shared secret between the artist and the listener."

Kendrick Lamar

"Every track I drop, it's a novel. A whole story with a start, middle and an end. It's not just words on a beat, it's a tale that can change lives, including my own."

Lin-Manuel Miranda

"In 'Hamilton' and every other piece I've written, storytelling has been key. It's not just about melody and rhythm, it's about taking people on a journey with your words, showing them a piece of history, a piece of yourself."

Joni Mitchell

"My songs are like short stories. They are filled with experiences and emotions I've had or observed. When people tell me how my stories have resonated with them, that's the ultimate success for me."

Stevie Nicks

"Every song is a journey, a story. I try to weave tales that are personal, yet universal. That's the power of storytelling in music."


"I've always viewed my albums as diaries. Each track tells a different chapter of my life. When fans tell me that they've been touched by one of my stories, that's a real high point for me."


"Songs to me are like condensed novels. The challenge and beauty lie in compacting a whole narrative within a few minutes."

Carole King

"Each song is a little story. It's a tale of love, loss, joy, pain, hope, despair. Sharing these tales, resonating with others, that's the power of music."

Neil Young

"Songs can tell the stories that we can't say out loud. I've been fortunate that my stories have been heard and have helped people in ways I never thought possible."

John Lennon

"The music carries the emotion, but the story gives it direction. That's the power of storytelling in songwriting."

Alicia Keys

"My songs are my stories. When I share them, I am baring my soul, my experiences, and my perspectives. And the beauty is when these stories touch others in a meaningful way."


"Music is about weaving stories, not just through the words but through the sounds. When it all comes together to create a narrative, that's when a song really works."
