If you’re writing an 8 bar verse or chorus structure your lyrics into four lines.
Then group those four lines into two pairs.
Rhyme the last word of each line within the pair.
You don’t have to make all four lines rhyme, just the pairs.
Make sure you don’t go for the obvious rhyme every single time – this is how your lyrics end up sounding cliche. Make them ‘semi-rhyme’ so they sound like the go together but they don’t actually rhyme 100%.
