    I was listening to my music in the shower this morning,, and it struck me that one of my favorite songs really does describe me and the way I see certain things. Mine is Different Drum by Linda Ronstadt. My grandma went to school with her father, a very nice man I met in his later years when I went to Tucson with my grandma for one of her high school reunions. She has always been one of my favorite singers.
    Post the lyrics and tell us why you identify with a certain song. The refrain on this song describes me so well! "I'm not in the market for a boy who wants to love only me." I've mentioned my dating woes before, I don't want a serious relationship, I just like to go dancing, have someone to see a movie with, etc. But they all get so serious so fast that I do run when they make eyes at me!

    Different Drum
    Linda Ronstadt

    You and I travel to the beat of a different drum
    Oh can't you tell by the way I run
    Every time you make eyes at me
    Wo-oh

    You cry and moan and say it will work out
    But honey child I've got my doubts
    You can't see the forest for the trees

    Oh don't get me wrong
    It's not that I knock it
    It's just that I am not in the market
    For a boy who wants to love only me


    Yes, and I ain't saying you ain't pretty
    All I'm saying is I'm not ready
    For any person place or thing
    To try and pull the reins in on me

    So good-bye I'll be leaving
    I see no sense in this crying and grieving
    We'll both live a lot longer
    If you live without me

    Oh don't get me wrong
    It's not that I knock it
    It's just that I am not in the market
    For a boy who wants to love only me

    Yes, and I ain't saying you ain't pretty
    All I'm saying is I'm not ready
    For any person place or thing
    To try and pull the reins in on me

    So good-bye I'll be leaving
    I see no sense in this crying and grieving
    We'll both live a lot longer
    If you live without me

    Hmm... very hard one..

    Bury Me in Smoke by Down Nola Album

    Windows are closing
    Keep me locked away
    No chance was given
    To find myself today
    My time of aging
    Wonder when I'll die
    But when my time will come
    I know the reason why

    I have an escape
    Alone it keeps me safe within my home
    I have a reason
    To keep me satisfied until I'm gone
    Don't regret the rules I broke
    When I die bury me in smoke

    Under the world
    I wait for my fate
    My soul is resting
    Beneath my blissful haze
    My time of aging
    Wonder when I'll die
    But when my time will come
    I know the reason why

    I have an escape
    Alone it keeps me safe within my home
    I have a reason
    To keep me satisfied until I'm gone
    Don't regret the rules I broke
    When I die bury me in smoke

    or Hair of the Dog by Nazareth

    Heart breaker, soul shaker
    Ive been told about you
    Steamroller, midnight stroller
    What they've been saying must be true

    Bridge:

    Red hot mama
    Velvet charmer
    Times come to pay your dues

    Chorus:

    Now you're messin with a
    A son of a b
    Now you're messin with a son of a b
    Now you're messin with a
    A son of a b
    Now you're messin with a son of a b

    Talkin jivey, poison ivy
    You aint gonna cling to me
    Man taker, born faker
    I aint so blind I can't see

    Gee Kate, that's a tuffy.

    I can't think of a song that describes me, but two that fit my life...

    I Can See Clearly Now by Johnny Nash

    and a more obscure song...

    Win by Brian McKnight

    I haven't heard it in a while but...

    "Mi Vida Loca
    Over and Over
    Destiny turns on a dime
    I go where the wind blows
    You can't tame a wild rose
    Welcome to my crazy life"
