I sit at my piano to try to write a song
I can't think of a melody the chords all turn out wrong
And I haven't found a genre, I'm looking for a style
I don't believe I'm getting to, anything I like

But I try, yes I try
I'm waiting for a miracle to keep this dream alive
And I try, oh I try
There's far too many failures to keep me satisfied

I know it sounds familiar, I'm sure it's all been done
But I've been here for decades to find the perfect song
So I'm sat at this piano still searching for a tune
I've never had a 'yesterday' or 'sunny afternoon'

And I'm thinking out the box, I'll take it on the chin
When nobody is listening, the doubt starts creeping in
And I'm running out of options, I wish I didn't care
There's only one thing left to do, I think I'll leave it there

But I try, oh I try
If only I could stay here and play for you a while
Yes I try, and I try
I've got nothing here to show you, am I wasting all my time?

Jack of all musical trades - master of none... just about sums me up!
Finally got around to recording a bunch of songs that I have been working on for years.
With the help of some talented musicians, I give you my one & only solo album.
I hope you find a song or two that you can take away and enjoy.
