Songs About Me
Over the years people have commented that a song reminds them of me. I think it’s pretty interesting how different the songs are.
Mary Jane by Alanis – Someone said this song made them think of me back in my really dark days when I was a teenager (yes, I used to be much darker). I had an eating disorder back then and was what people now call “emo”.
I hear you’re counting sheep again Mary Jane
What’s the point of trying to dream anymore
I hear you’re losing weight again Mary Jane
Do you ever wonder who you’re losing it for
Well it’s full speed baby
In the wrong direction
There’s a few more bruises
If that’s the way
You insist on heading
Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Deep Blue Something – After a really painful breakup in college the guy tried to explain exactly why we didn’t work out and he said that this song made him think of me. I didn’t quite get it until I listened to the lyrics carefully…
And I said, “what about ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s?'”
She said, “I think I remember the film
And as I recall, i think, we both kind of liked it”
And I said, “well that’s, one thing we’ve got”
Mind you after he said that I couldn’t get away from that song, it stalked me. To this day if I hear it I roll my eyes, I actually used to like that song.
Self Esteen by The Offspring – A couple friends said they thought of me (in relation to an ex-boyfriend I guess I didn’t always treat all that well but I honestly wasn’t this bad) and well, it’s not pretty.
I Wrote Her Off For The Tenth Time Today
And Practiced All The Things I Would Say
But She Came Over
I Lost My Nerve
I Took Her Back And Made Her Dessert
Now I Know I’m Being Used
That’s Okay Man Cause I Like The Abuse
I Know She’s Playing With Me
That’s Okay Cause I’ve Got No Self Esteem
He’s actually the one ex I’m on the best terms with, ironic.
Anyway, now I just need someone to write a song for me and I’ll be all set. Something tells me though that the song would not be flattering.
