The Story
Yet another beat-yourself up song. This time, I'm thick-fingered-- clumsy, always reaching, never quite grasping.

It's about not getting anywhere with girls, especially after finding myself unable to make a move on a particular girl. Wound up in very close quarters, but never managed to go further. Everything was going according to plan, except for my follow-through.

The Song
Dark chords seemed in order here, so E minor dominates the verse. But the chorus is more hopeful, and uses brighter chords, much like "Juice Me Up".

It has been pointed out to me (repeatedly!) that it sounds a lot like "Keep on rockin' in the free world". I'll have to learn that one.
