I live an extremely sheltered life, and I have never heard a song that really reminds me of myself. I guess the closest I've heard is Wide Open Spaces by the Dixie Chicks; I like the song but its not one of my favorites. But I've never had sex, had someone exceptionally close to me die, been in love, been heartbroken, or anything which is the theme of many songs.

Huh. That's kind of weird to me. Just out of curiosity (yeah, probs spelled that wrong), what are some of your favorite songs?

You can still relate to those songs in some way. Haven't you ever felt sad? Maybe not sad about the same things, but still the same feeling? Or upbeat dance songs. Haven't you ever felt the need to dance? Haven't you ever felt happy?

Not really that same level of sadness and energy that are present in those songs. I guess I was focusing on the emotions of the songs themselves instead of branching out into the entirety of the emotion like you did.
