Story Behind The Song

Orignally intended to be a lesbian teen song, but slowly morphed into an anthem for any young woman who, though hopeful for love, isn't concerned about getting hurt along the way and realizes that is part of living life. A hopeful risk taker.

Song Description

Song about a young woman who doesn't fit into the world but just doesn't give a shit. The singer is her own person, so don't tell her "don't". Great for film lead in, or outro. Not angst ridden, just joyful with a touch of don't "f" with me about it.

"I never was a girl of sugar and spice, I was puppy dog tails, fire and ice. I always knew I didn't quite fit but man I was alright with it but everybody says CHORUS don't push your luck, don't rock the boat, don't cross the line, don't don't don't bet the house, don't go for broke, but don't you tell me don't. Cuz if you're gonna play you gotta get muddy, if you're gonna love, you're gonna get hurt, and nobody gets their diamond, withoug digging down in the dirt."
V2 You know I found real love a couple of times, fallen in only to crash, but every goodbye paves that winding road to the one that lasts, if you ain't bleedin' you ain't trying, if you never lost, you never played, I ain't never seen a rainbow born from a blue sky sunny day, but everybody says Chorus

short guitar lead break

Bridge, I'm a little bit wiser today, but not quite well behaved, cuz if it's history you wanna make, well sister don't be afraid to do it your way. . . . when everybody says. . . don't ,...
chorus to end.
