Songwriters songs move people, Create ANTHEM songs (eg) I've Got Friends in low places, We are the champions my friend, etc. These songs involve people emotionally, connects with listeners, evokes emotions and physical reaction - cry, laugh is what DRIVES the song.
Songwriters songs have a glimmer of hope or speaks to a cause that's close to them.
Writers may need to re-write verse / change the beat to create the 'vibe'. Using chords (power), walk down chords leading and building up into the chorus. HOOK ! Changing a line can make all the DIFFERENCE to creating a hit song. Be patience. Stay Positive. Be creative.
Depending on song subject be careful on using "WE" as it sometimes doesn't sit well to identify who WE may refer to in your lyrics? Changing We to " I " works better to identify you
Melody can be GOLD: If playing your song you can't get the 'HOOK' line out of your mine, keeps repeating in your head, find yourself singing your new song at any given time;" That's a HIT "
' MAKE THE SONG YOURS '
