New Song: It’s a Good Thing I’m a Gamer (Because you Make me Want to Kick someone in the head)

This was another sort of unplanned bit of crazy. I was supposed to go to an event tomorrow in which I needed some sort of heartbreaky or lovesick thing to perform. Well, the event has been postponed due mostly to a case of the ‘fuck it’s cold!’s, but the song has been written anyway, so I’m sharing.

Observation: I suck at mush, and it sort of turned into a farse.

Observation 2: Strumming slow is hard. I caught myself picking up my pace as I played through this, multiple times, but I was more concerned with getting a play through of it before I forgot than I was with getting the pacing right. I may actually have to practice slow tempos with the metronome. Hate to do that because..okay, I should be using a metronome anyway, but the clicking sound irritates me. I have to find a metronome tone that is less annoying.

ANYWAY, here’s a silly break-up song, to warm up for Valentine’s day(playing my tenor for a change):

It’s a Good Thing I’m a Gamer (because you make me want to kick someone in the head)

Since you’ve been gone/I’ve been home alone

spending my time with fictional men.

It’s not that I miss the real thing

or that your absence stings.

I’m not stuck inside my head

wondering if I’d be better off dead.

It’s just that whenever I think of you

I kind of wanna kick someone in the head.

And since you left all of your crap behind

it’s a little hard to get you off my mind.

 

So it’s a good thing I’m a gamer

or I might get in trouble with the law

Because every time I get your mail

and have to sort through it all

the only thing that keeps me sane

is throwing someone into a wall.

 

Why do you need so many catalogs

when all you ever bought was beer

and as for your DVDs/you’re not gonna find them here

Shouldn’t have left all your shit behind

now everything you used to own is mine.

 

It’s a good thing I’m a gamer

I can see the humor in it all.

Because whenever I see your stupid face

I think of the cash I earned clearing your junk out of my place.

 

It’s a good thing I’m a gamer

or you might not live through this

because even though your drunk dials never seem to stop

I can always throw someone off a cliff

and watch them take a 40 foot drop.

 

It’s a good thing I’m a gamer

or I might get in trouble with the law

Because every time I hear your voice begging me to call

The only thing that keeps me sane

is fucking up all of your favorite games.

You really shouldn’t have the same password

You had when we first met

Because if you’re gonna be that dumb

you deserve whatever you get

And even if they block this IP

your friends will never let you hear the end of me.

 

It’s a good thing I’m a gamer

or I might get in trouble with the law

because every time you come to mind

I have some pretty violent thoughts.

    1. The syrupy part of my brain is broken, apparently. Lol. I sat for two days struggling over some emotional drivel and then this idea came to mind. I was like ‘Fuck it. This is way more fun!’ There are a few lines that are rhythmically weird and may get changed (the drunk dials line is hellishly awkward), but for the most part, I got a new tune in my repertoire out of it, so it doesn’t suck. I wasn’t looking forward to braving the single digit weather tonight anyway.
