Shouldn't I Have All of This

Passionate Kisses (lucinda williams)

Is it too much to ask
I want a comfortable bed that won't hurt my back
Food to fill me up
And warm clothes and all that stuff
Shouldn't I have this
Shouldn't I have this
Shouldn't I have all of this, and

Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you

Is it too much to demand
I want a full house and a rock and roll band
Pens that won't run out of ink
And cool quiet and time to think
Shouldn't I have this
Shouldn't I have this
Shouldn't I have all of this, and

Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you

Do I want too much
Am I going overboard to want that touch
I shout it out to the night
Give me what I deserve, 'cause it's my right
Shouldn't I have this (shouldn't I)
Shouldn't I have this (shouldn't I)
Shouldn't I have all of this, and

Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you

You might know this song, it was a HUGE hit for Mary Chapin Carpenter back in the 90's. I prefer the version by Lucinda Williams, who wrote the song and is a phenomenal singer/songwriter. But I'll save my Lucinda Williams raving for another post. What I wanted to whine, I mean post, about was how I heard this song on my not-an-ipod earlier and it made me think. Think about how 10 years ago when this song came out I could really relate to the lyrics and how 10 years later nothing has really changed. Which sucks. Alot. Makes me wonder about myself. Wonder if I have some sort of man-repellant thing happening which makes me invisible to men or instantly turns me into a "friend." Is it just a fucked up twist of fate that I haven't met ANYONE who wants to be with me (who's not married or involved)? Or is it me? Am I too picky? Too opininated? Too ______________ ? Granted I don't put myself in a lot of man meeting situations anymore but that's only 'cause I got sick & tired to being ignored/rejected/lied to. Grrr.... when did this get so hard?

I love both LW and MCC, but I think you're right that Lucinda's version of the song is better. They're both pretty good though.

As for the other stuff, I'm in no position to give advice. Commiserate maybe....
