motherf***in' blues

I"m not myself
But I"ll write this down
I"m a loser
I'll make you frown
I've got these motherf***in' blues
I"m not messing around

I wish my glasses made me invisible
That wouldn't be terrible
I might actually feel invincible
Instead of motherf***in' blue

That's it for now. C4C?

It has a straight to the point style which is something I particularly like. I think you need to expand this. You have some OK imagery but try telling a story. Like think "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" by George Thorogood. It is a giant story basically. Do that.

This has potential for a good story type of song. Break down specific scenes and note small ordinary details within the story to create a setting. What I like to do before creating a story-esque poem is read somebody like Edgar Allen Poe who mastered story-telling poems.

I would like to see the end result! Also, listen to some old school blues songs by Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker... etc.

I like where this is going. I can just hear a powerful blues number in my head with phenomenal solos, killer bass, and crashing drums. Keep it up!
