(air) guitar solo

(air) guitar solo


been doin’ this as far back as you remember

lost count how many times you practiced

even before you learned how to play


twenty years ago

van halen

record player

from your father’s collection


pictured yourself in front of thousands


your fingers missing every possible note

but you still sounded amazing

(thank god for sound checks


played to a sold out bedroom mirror

your reflection

checked your hand positions around your instrument

before you even held a real one

wanted to make sure you looked the part

looked cool enough


back on stage

present time

in the zone

writing your own songs


even with everyone watching now

you still just play for your reflection

never cared if you looked the part


for over twenty years

you certainly felt it
