Songwriter's block as a tool for self-expression and creativity.
Lyrics
I thinking about what to say this time
But I’ve got nothing but an empty line
It’s raining outside but my thoughts are dry
Since I can’t write a blues, I may as well cry.

I’m up all night and I sleep all day
Can’t shake a blues out of any cliche
I woke up this morning, but Elmore said that’s mine
Since I can’t write a blues, I may as well cry.

I got a groove and a handful of licks
I know the chords and what makes them tick
Sometimes I wonder why I even try.
Since I can’t write a blues, I may as well cry.
