What's your theme song?

What's your theme song?

If you could describe yourself to perfection by choosing a "theme song", what would that song be? I have taken that challenge today to discover my own theme song. It's harder than it sounds.

I love music of all genres and I have a zillion favorite songs that I just love. My father left me this beautiful gift of love and appreciation for music. My father was a huge Elvis fan and loved everything Elvis. While my mom was pregnant with me he would sing to me and I believe I loved that very much. My father also played the guitar and from what my mother says he was very good at it. I happen to play the piano, although I don't consider myself very skilled at it. My father also loved to sing, which I inherited also. I'm guessing he was better than I was, any smart comment made by Simon Cowell on my singing would be dead on.

So, my theme song. I have had many over the years such as: "Wind Beneath My Wings", this was during my years of being without my birthmother. Another theme song of mine was "You're The Inspiration" by Chicago. I had this song for several years during my painful divorce.

Currently, I think my song would be "Live Like You Were Dying" by Tim McGraw.

He said: "I was in my early forties, "With a lot of life before me,

"An' a moment came that stopped me on a dime.

"I spent most of the next days, "Looking at the x-rays,

"An' talking 'bout the options an' talkin’ ‘bout sweet time.

"I asked him when it sank in, That this might really be the real end?

How’s it hit you when you get that kind of news? Man whatcha do?

An' he said: "I went sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,

"I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu.

"And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,

"And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying.

"An' he said: "Some day, I hope you get the chance, "To live like you were dyin'."

He said "I was finally the husband, "That most the time I wasn’t.

"An' I became a friend a friend would like to have.

"And all of a sudden goin' fishin’,"Wasn’t such an imposition,

"And I went three times that year I lost my Dad.

"Well, I finally read the Good Book, "And I took a good long hard look,

"At what I'd do if I could do it all again,

"And then: "I went sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,

"I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu.

"And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter, "And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying.

"An' he said: "Some day, I hope you get the chance, "To live like you were dyin'.

" Like tomorrow was a gift, And you got eternity, To think about what you’d do with it.

Live like tomorrow was a gift!

This is a fun post. FYI next Sunday's question is "If you were to write a autobiography what would the title be and why". The questions change every Sunday. I'm already working on my answer. I can't wait to see your post on that question.
