Writer's Block

This song is by Cirque du Soleil and appears on the event soundtrack Paramour (Original Broadway Cast Recording) (2016).

He gets his film, he gets his star
And I'm alone with my guitar
The girl that I've loved all along
Left a songwriter who can't write a song

So how am I supposed to write
A tune to make the heart take flight?
And also make my soul forget
I'm only half a love duet

'Cause if a broken man in a state of shock
Cannot make a friend of his writer's block
Then what do you do?

It's the pain that makes the art
Like when love just falls apart
Well, I should use my jelousy
As a fuel to crank out this tune within me

But what am I supposed to do
If I can't make her dreams come true?
And while I hope that she succeeds
I can't give her the song she needs

'Cause if there's not a key that fits to unlock
An imprisoned mind from a writer's block
Then what do I do?
