Description
I'm a positive guy but there have been many times in my life when I just wanted to kick a rock down the street and say, 'well shit'. Sometimes no matter how much you try you just can't figure a thing out. That's what this song is about. I don't know what genre this is, but it's definitely a genre, the angsty kick a rock down the street song, punk in the way that it's defiantly simple, just a few chords, but yet sung from the heart with real lyrics. I was thinking of Drivin and Cryin's 'Straight to Hell' and Slaid Cleaves's 'Black T-Shirt', two of my all time favorite songs.

Lyrics
I fell in love with Jesus
when I was thirteen
but I suck at love
yeah I suck at love
it's like a skateboard trick
how-to in a magazine
oh they make it look easy
me, i'm eating the street

cause I suck at love
yeah I suck at love
I suck at love
I suck at love

I fell in love with rock and roll
when I was eighteen
but I suck at love
yeah I suck at love
I lost all my microphones
I broke my guitar strings
and she left me just like
the other girls I treated mean

cause I suck at love
yeah I suck at love
I suck at love
I suck at love

I got a good woman
I cast a spell to keep her with me
but I suck at love
I suck at love
I don't know what she thinks she's doing
I don't know what she sees in me
I watch her crying sometimes
I just pretend i'm blind

cause I suck at love
yeah I suck at love
etc

Suck at Love
Plaintive and sparse. It works well. "Kicking a rock down the street" sounds like a good enough genre as any. Thanks for the therapy session, Craig :-) Take care.

Plaintive
That's what I was going for. It seemed punk to me, or what I really like most about punk is that there is a plaintive vein, I think behind all defiance there's that hollowness. Thanks for the close listen!

suck it up
that's my life philosophy in a nutshell. Sometimes I get tired of being a hardass and just want to go off and whine for a little bit :)

depending
nearly all of my songs represent moments rather than states of being. this is one of those - just a 'I feel like this right now' vs 'I feel like this'. Glad you thought the song was catchy, I really like that aspect of it. Thanks for the listen and the kind words!

You Suck
...at love and you're a horrible artist. I thought you knew a guy that would do art on demand? What-ever.

You don't suck at song writing. This is one of my new favorite Tempie Toons! You told the story with two chords and the truth. "I just pretend I'm blind" - whew. Love it.

Thanks bro - let's start a band with a Mormon sometime?
