FAILED MELODY by Tim Miller

0 Comment

Da-da-da
Da-da-dum.
Da-da-da
Da-da-dum.

I always
Wanted to
Learn to play
Had no clue.

Kids make it
Look easy.
I’m twenty
It beats me.

Guitar is
Freaking hard
childhood dreams
Ripped to shards.

Da-da-da,
da-da-dum
What the hell,
Frets, pluck, strum.

I’m drowning
I’m hurting
Finger tips
Are bleeding.

I think that
I’m getting
bit closer
to playing.

Know tabs for
Deep Purple’s
Smoke on the
water yeah.

Da-da-da
Da-da-dum
Download chords
Frets, pluck, strum.

I’d work back
Take phone calls
Drink with mates
Hobby stalls.

Things did change,
Practice stops.
They became
Display props

My dreams have
Adjusted
My guitars
Get dusted.

Da-da-da
Da-da-dum
No time for
Frets, pluck, strum.
