In general, and I mean, general, you can use major chords for songs that are light content lyrical stories, or typical life experiences, relationship songs, romance, light/happy topic everyday experience songs. Folk or Country songs. Moderate to slow tempos. Acoustic guitar or piano, strings or organ sounds work there, along with other woodwind or brass instruments of course if desired.
If you write deep thought lyrics, sad, tragic, or mysterious songs, minor chords will help create that mood. Strings and abstract synth samples may work well here. Possibly lead guitar parts with heavy reverb/delay/echo repeat, maybe orchestra drum sounds like kettle drums, chimes, vibes, etc.
Angry lyric songs or sexually driven lyrics can be expressed with overdrive guitar. Many of these types of songs are fast tempo. Heavy kick drum and bass guitar are main ingredients for these types of standard, or heavy metal rock. Fast paced frantic overdrive guitar leads and hard driving drum patterns, work here.
Jazz or more complex voicing chords, are generally reserved for Jazz or funk music. Of course there are a few exceptions to that rule.
This is only the tip of the iceberg advise/suggestion.
