During the process of song writing for my first album, I found that I was picky enough to make sure that my album is not boring,has at least two or three hook songs,covers more then one kind of my style of music.
I my opinion-those are the factors that make for a decent first album.
Get yourself out of the song,picture you watching your self play and sing your song as a separate human being( the audience) and ask your other self if you want to hum the tune as you hear it again and again.

Write with a melody in mind. Don't over-think it. Use play-on -words.
Try not be very very detailed and obvious with your lyrics.
