I'm No Angel......just a song or an autobiography?


Ever had a song just describe you perfectly? Like the songwriter knew you...better than you thought you knew yourself?

I've had a love of music my entire life, so it's an important part of my whole as a person. There have been songs that have reflected certain moments or key points in my life, but never a song that I could say "Hey...that's me!"

Until recently, when I found a Gregg Allman CD I hadn't played in quite a while. The song's called "I'm No Angel" & when you listen, you can hear this man, who's less than perfect, telling a lady just how he feels.

No I'm no angel
No I'm no stranger to the street
I've got my label
So I won't crumble at your feet
And I know baby
So I've got scars upon my cheek
And I'm half crazy
Come on and love me baby

So you find me hard to handle
Well, I'm easier to hold
So you like my spurs that jingle
And I never leave you cold
So I might steal your diamonds
I'll bring you back some gold
I'm no angel

No I'm no angel
No I'm no stranger to the dark
Let me rock your cradle
Let me start a fire with your spark
Oh come on baby
Come and let me show you my tattoo
Let me drive you crazy
Come on and love me baby

So you don't give a darn about me
I never treat you bad
I won't ever lift a hand to hurt you
and I'll always leave you glad
So I might steal your diamonds
I'll bring you back some gold
I'm no angel


-from the song I'm No Angel by Gregg Allman

This guy's saying "Hey, I'm not perfect...but I'll be good to you...as long as you'll let me."
Same here...I'm sure as hell no angel, but I'll never treat a lady badly or break a heart intentionally.

Is there a song out there that you could say is your autobiography? Let's hear it...and I promise Simon Cowell will not criticize your choice of music.
