That Never Works

Digital Single

Every musician has key chords that they like. You will hear them hit those chords in some of their favorite compositions. I decided to make a track with some of mine.

The song is, as these things go, about a woman I met and was in serious crush-mode for. I have severe self-confidence issues (apparently), so I tend to work things out through song. My thought is regularly, "I will write her a song and she will find interest in me." Then I will often backtrack, down on myself, and say, "Aw, that never works."

Hence the title. I removed the "Aw."

You're welcome.
