closer to free

one of my favorite blogs talks a lot about the indigo girls song "closer to fine."

however, since reading a blog by glennon the other day, i've had the song "closer to free" in my head...remember it? the theme song to party of five. i loved that show. in fact, i need to find a way to get hold of the seasons so i can watch it again.

anyway.

i watched the show endlessly, and i still remember the words. and now that i'm older, the words ring a whole lot truer. they mean more. and they really are true.

Everybody wants to live
How they wanna live
And everybody wants to love
Like they wanna love
And everybody wants to be
Closer to Free

Everybody wants respect
Just a little bit
And everybody needs a chance
Once in a while
Everybody wants to be
Closer to Free

Everybody one
Everybody two
Everybody free

Everybody needs to touch
You know now and then
And everybody wants a good good friend
Everybody wants to be
Closer to Free

Everybody wants to live
How they want to live
And everybody wants to love
Who they want to love
And everybody wants to be
Closer to Free
--The BoDeans

we all want to be closer to free. this could be my new theme song.

  2. I have all the seasons if you want to borrow them. I used to absolutely love this show, or should I say, I loved Scott Wolf! That was a great show, and I love that theme song!!
