I happen to be a Shakespeare fan, but I like to keep him at the theater.
The best songs speak the way we do, with a few clever twists here and there.
If you want to say “I love you”, actually saying it might not be the worst idea.
While poetry is beautiful, it can also be a foreign language to someone trying to listen your song.
If you want a response from your audience you have to speak to them in a way in which they understand.
Simplicity is key!
