A song that is temporarily my favorite.

I feel like I can relate to this song. A lot, sometimes :)
Read the lyrics, and you'll be able to understand me better.
Or not. **

Skeleton Song - Kate Nash

Skeleton you are my friend
But you are made of bone
And you have got no flesh and blood
Running through you to help protect the bone

Skeleton we have been friends for years
And you have seen me through some trials
And tribulations and some tears
But everybody thinks I'm weird

And I should have known
That it wouldn't be long
Until you, you've got me standing in an awkward position
With unwanted attention and a need for explanation
And it's not that I'm letting go of you
But I don't know what to do

Skeleton we are so close
But you have got no body
So why do you insist on wearing clothes

Skeleton when we were young
It was easy
Even though the other kids
They would tease me
But I was only seven I had you
But now I'm twenty-two

And now it's different, when I take you out
And you, you've got me standing in an awkward position
With unwanted attention and a need for explanation
And it's not that I'm letting go of you
But I don't know what to do

And sometimes at night,
I dream of the most terrible things
I take a hammer and I creep out of bed
And I raise it high
And I smash your head
Fibular and tubular
And ribs and cages, too
In fact, while I'm here
I'll smash the whole of you

Smaaaaaaaaaaash !

But Skeleton, you are my friend
And I could never bring your life to an end
Yes Skeleton you are, you are my friend
And I will be there for you until the end

And even though, when I take you out
You've got me, you've got me standing in an awkward position
With unwanted attention and a need for explanation
I could, I could never let you go

And that is all I know
And that is all I know
And that is all I, that is all I know
And that is all I know, know

** Okay, okay. I don't really relate to this song. But it does make me smile. I'd say I can relate to it a little . . . it's just a funny/weird song that I like . . . and I kind of wanted to post something on my blog. :) My next post will be better, I pinky promise. If you get the chance, listen to this song. Okay? Okay.

I can see how that relates to you! But I'll tell you how in person. ;-) ps. I read your blog too, and love it. I made a big comment on the last entry (i laughed out loud too) and somehow it didn't post...sorry. Thanks for being an awesome daughter! I love you, Mom

um, I love that song. That is why i bought it, but I don't really see why you relate to it. Unless you have an imaginary friend...or am I your imaginary friend? please explain. Love, Mary

okay okay I'll say it...Thinking figuratively and not literally, we all have stuff from our past that we hang on to...skeletons.
They could be addictions or other bad stuff...I'll explain that first, but this does NOT apply to you Becca!
"Skeleton we have been friends for years, And you have seen me through some trials, And tribulations and some tears..."

When people find out our past stuff
"you've got me standing in an awkward position
With unwanted attention and a need for explanation"

SO for you, Becca, I see your fun skeletons as being the quirkey little girl things you still like to hang on to and ways you still secretly like to play, even though you know/feel you should be a grown-up now. I much prefer this interpretation to the other one.

I love you AND your skeletons!

Mary, like that one time I played like a dog under the table when we had company over. :D

Hi Becca, I now officially know everything there is to know about you :-D I just finished your entire blog. Oh my goodness. Maybe I should have spaced it out a little bit... Not that you can get too much of Becca... But I think I might have gotten too much of Blog... Or maybe computer screen... Hmmmm... It was enjoyable ^_^ You have a fun life! :D
