Writer Blocked

Tags: 

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

A friend on Facebook reminded me that when you're out of ideas even writing about having no ideas is something! 'Writer Blocked' was sitting in my list of ideas since the start of the summer so it was nice to finally make it into something.

Lyrics: 

WRITER BLOCKED
Capo 5

Em
It’s finally happened
I have run dry
G
There’s nothing left in me
No words to rhyme
D
I can’t believe it
But I got nothin'
A
No final inkling
No song is comin’

CHORUS
Em G
Writer blocked
D A
Writer blocked
Em G
Writer blocked
D A
Woe is the writer
The audience shocked

Em
I don’t know how
There are no more chords
G
the verses have ceased
and so too the chorus
D
I don’t know why
But everything’s stopped
A
My head is empty
I’m all tapped out

CHORUS
Em G
Writer blocked
D A
Writer blocked
Em G
Writer blocked
D A
Woe is the writer
The audience shocked

Em
The muse is now gone
My fingers are still
G
The energy lost
and so is the will

D
The paper is bare
Creative no more
A
I think I’ll give up
and just walk out the door

CHORUS
Em G
Writer blocked
D A
Writer blocked
Em G
Writer blocked
D A
Woe is the writer
The audience shocked

I want to learn to play my guitar like that. This is awesome! Love the tune.

I love the strumming! Been listening to Van Morrison's Astral Weeks lately - has that kind of guitar in a few songs.
I like the passion you put into this! You make something quite genius out of your frustration.
