I think the "ah-ha!" moment for me came when I recognized that lyrics don't need to make strict grammatical or even syntactical sense, so long as they convey the ideas or feelings you're striving for. And so if the prosody isn't sitting quite right I may rearrange the order of words -- something you would never do when having a conversation, but a tactic that lends itself to the poetic license songwriters can take advantage of.
