Defining Song Lyrics

I loved this post from Kate at Another Clean Slate so much I decided to "borrow" it from her.

 The concept is that you choose a song lyric that defines you and then what you think the other person would honestly choose. I decided to take it a step further and actually ask said individuals what they would choose. Here are the results:

  • What I thought my friends would choose: There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you, We stick together, we can see it through, 'Cause you've got a friend in me – Randy Newman, You've Got a Friend in Me
  • What my friends actually chose: “I've got friends in low places, where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away” – Garth Brooks, Friends in Low Places (Just in case you're wondering why, Lauren and I like to belt this one out to each other)

  • What I’d like Dave to choose: “Cause you are home to me” - Josh Kelley, Home to Me
  • What he actually chose:  "Give me more loving than I've ever had, Make it all better when I'm feeling sad, Tell me I'm special even when I know I'm not– Plain White T's, 1,2,3,4

  • What I thought my mom would choose:I hope you never lose your sense of wonder, You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger, May you never take one single breath for granted,” – Lee Ann Womack, I Hope you Dance
  • What I she actually chose:My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to, Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small, You never need to carry more than you can hold, And while you're out there getting where you're getting to, I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,” – Rascal Flatts, My Wish (Kate, my mom choose this one too!!)

How would you describe yourself with song lyrics? How do you think your loved ones would describe you? Or, better yet, how did they describe you?
