Miss March: Song Lyric Saturday

Happy Saturday, all.

I’ve decided that Saturdays, since we’re all out and about, will be kept short with some of my favorite song lyrics about love/women/romance/etc. Just a quick summery of last night: went to a bar in town with J and ran into literally everyone I know. Including my first kiss. I’m not sure if he ever knew he was MY first kiss, but there he was, scruff and all. He hasn’t grown, he still has that glazed over look in his eyes, and he never went to college. But, he came over like a gentleman and gave me a big hug and kiss. It was pretty damn funny. J also ran into her first boyfriend, who I think is a sweetheart; one of those boys who are totally safe, but totally not safe at the same time. Anyway, we stayed out late meandering around watching and talking to people. It was like a scene from a movie, and I can’t wait to do it again. Have you ever run into your first kiss?

Today’s favorite lyrics of mine are to the song Love Me Like a Man by Bonnie Raitt. I adore Bonnie Raitt; her lyrics are powerful, wise, and sultry all at the same time. The song is her asking to be “loved like a man” so that she can be put before the man himself, because all men ever think about are themselves.

Love Me Like a Man

I heart Bonnie Raitt!

I heart Bonnie Raitt!

The men that I’ve been seeing, baby
Got their soul up on a shelf
You know they could never love me
When they can’t even love themselves
But I need someone to love me
Someone to really understand
Who won’t put himself above me
Who’ll just love me like a man
I never seen such losers darlin’
even though I try
To find a mind who can take me home
’stead of taking me for a ride
And I need someone to love me
I know you can
Believe me when I tell you
You can love me like a man
Oh they want me to rock them
Like my back ain’t got no bone
I want a man to rock me
Like my… backbone was his own
Baby, I know you can
Believe me when I tell you
You can love me like a man
I come home sad and lonely
Feel like I wanna cry
I need someone to hold me
Not some fool to ask me why
And I need someone to love me
Darlin’ I know you can
Don’t you put yourself above me
You just love me like a man

Have a great day, everyone!
