about

I wrote this song after I watched a scene in a show or movie that I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called.

But, there was a guy and a girl. He was keen on this girl but as things started to get serious she began to pull away. Even after the emotional roller coaster this guy rode, he still kept chasing the girl. It got me thinking, what is the test of how much you love some one? How much are you prepared to go through? What's the point when you say it's over?

The track begins with a piano and a melancholy upfront naked vocal setting the scene of a guy left wondering where his girl could be while he waits for her on the driveway in his jacket and jeans.

As the sparse first chorus finishes other instruments are introduced bringing tension to music in the second verse. When the drums kick in during the second chorus the song begins to soar and the emotional ride is in full swing until finishing with a voice splitting last chorus and all band in.

lyrics

Love You When It's Bad
Lyrics by AJ Steel

I was waiting for you
On the drive in my jacket and jeans
I called everyone that I could think of
no one knew where you'd be

I love you when it's bad
I love you when it's good
and when you're all messed up
and crazy and wondering how I could
love when it's bad
I love you when it's good

I don't know where you go
Even though you sleep right next to me
But I know now you'll never leave
Our love is big like the sea

I love you when it's bad
I love you when it's good
and when you're all messed up
and crazy and wondering how I could
love when it's bad
I love you when it's good

I don't don't why you can't
find you way home to me
But I'll be right here
I'm waiting for you to come home

I love you when it's bad
I love you when it's good
and when you're all messed up
and crazy and wondering how I could
love when it's bad
I love you when it's good
