I've Never Been To Me.....
As cheesy as this is, I love it. Listen to it? Register to the words?
My lovely friend Naomi was "singing" it on Twitter yesterday, and I ended up You Tubing it. And found myself enjoying it all over again. I loved it in the 1980's; identified with its resurgence in the 1990's, and now, listening to the lyrics 30 years on since I heard them the first time, I can identify even more, on both sides of the coin.
The grass is greener, whichever lifestyle I chose to lead.
I have periods of being a discontented mother and a (self) regimented wife. Periods where I crave the life I had. I've been to Nice and the isles of Greece, when I sipped champagne on a yacht. Truly.
And of course, whilst I spent my earlier life exploring, all I craved was a truth. A truth that involved babies and a husband.
Which, thankfully, I now have.
Am I the only one that goes around and around in circles with nostalgia, love, with trying to find out what I want, what will be best?
I know, I know. I need to I take this life I have been gifted and not get bitter from the sweet.
One hit wonder she may be, but the lyrics still have an impact upon me each and every decade I feel them.
Do you have a song? One that makes you think? One that makes you stop and listen? One that makes you happy, sad, grateful and nostalgic, all at the same time?
