Drift Away- My "Theme Song"

I love the song Drift Away. Though most would say I'm the happy, cheerful crazy girl, I am a loner and I think this song reflects my innermost personality.

Day after day I'm more confused
And I look for the light Light
Through the pouring rain.
You know that's a game that I hate to lose
And I'm feelin' the strain, ain't it a shame.

(Chorus)
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul,
I want to get lost in your rock and roll
And drift away. (Repeat)

Beginning to think that I'm wasting time
I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind.
And I'm counting on you, to carry me through.

Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I want to get lost in you rock and roll
And drift away. (Repeat)

And when my mind is free
You know a melody can move me
And when I'm feelin' blue
The guitar's coming through to soothe me
Thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
Rhythm and rhyme and harmony
You help me along, making me strong.

I love the quiet and soft, almost sad, lyrics and melody. But it also seems to me to contain hope and joy too. Maybe I'm being a bit melodramatic, but I think it's true.

The End
