Unlucky

Liner Notes: 

This song reflects my currently pessimistic view on love. Usually, when I like a girl they're either in a relationship or they're not ready to date.
Despite my greatness (not a flex), I haven't yet landed a serious girlfriend.
I did date a girl for a while, but the relationship fell apart (this explains the second verse). For the story behind that, consult my earlier 50/90 song "Lydia (You're Not Ready)".

The demo was recorded on my Android phone. I played my Yamaha PSR EW400. Though originally a stereo recording, I made it a mono recording in Audacity (isolating the right channel) because the clicking of the keys was much louder in the left channel.

Lyrics: 

It seems when I love someone, they're taken
Or they're not yet ready to be dating
Night after night, I'm sitting alone
Sad and lonely with no love of my own

Whenever Cupid fires an arrow
He just misses every time
Why does this happen to me?
I've committed no crime
When it comes to love
Oh, I'm unlucky

Always coming close and then failing
It never appears to be 'smooth sailing'
Love has gone away and led me astray
You said to me "Love will find a way"

Whenever Cupid fires an arrow
He just misses every time
Why does this happen to me?
I've committed no crime
When it comes to love
Oh, I'm unlucky

Will I find someone who appreciates me?
A good lover is who I long to meet
I regress back to the single life
All around me, the romance is rife

Whenever Cupid fires an arrow
He just misses every time
Why does this happen to me?
I've committed no crime
When it comes to love
Oh, I'm unlucky



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Good vocal delivery and good words I think people should be able to relate to. I like these lines, "Whenever cupid fires an arrow, he just misses every time".

Yup can relate to your frustration. Song speaks from the heart and has a great passion to it. Effort and thought in the song shows you're a good catch. Good luck.
