about

This song came about after I've been singing a standard called "Wild Women Don't Have the Blues" for a while. At some point when I *did* get the blues, I realized that many people in my life don't realize that this was a thing that could happen.

Many people assume that extroverts, performers, and otherwise highly-motivated people are immune to depression and anxiety. Yes, I kick ass whenever I can, and yes I choose to be free of many social rules and regulations and live an unusual life, but it doesn't mean I don't have feels about it.

In fact, because I choose such freedom, it's even harder to make genuine connections with other like-minded humans, so folks - cherish your friendships, because if you find people who are your kind of weird, it's a blessing <3

Don't worry, I still sing "Wild Women Don't Have the Blues", if I'm in that kind of mood ;)

lyrics

They say that I’m a wild one
I say that they’re not wrong
But sometimes even wild ones
Don’t want to be alone
Yeah I’m a free one
Free as I can be
Some days I choose freedom
Some days freedom chooses me

They say that I’m a strong one
I say that ain’t no lie
But just because I’m strong
It don’t mean I never cry
Yeah I’m a free one
Free as I can be
Some days I choose freedom
Some days freedom chooses me

They tell me that I’m crazy
Because I’m feeling sad
But when your heart is aching
It makes a woman mad
Yeah I’m a free one
Free as I can be
Some days I choose freedom
Some days freedom chooses me

Yeah I know that I’m a wild one
Wild and free and loose
But let me tell ya something
Even wild ones get the blues
Yeah I’m a free one
Free as I can be
Some days I choose freedom
Some days freedom chooses me
