Ear Worm

December 4, 2016

It’s a song about waiting around for a completely unspecified timeframe hoping that some long-for person will make a different choice. And if they do make that different choice, there’s going to be some sort of evaluation, a test which maybe the singer will pass, and maybe they won’t.

As a model for life, this is so disempowering. And it is such a crummy strategy for pursuing a successful relationship.

Also, welcome to my current ear worm.

If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you’ve got no place to go, if you’re feeling down
If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try.
