Can't tell you how much I love and relate to this song. The first time I heard it I was in my car after a dental appointment - just sat there in the parking lot weeping at the truth of it. How often have I altered my very core to be who I thought my significant other (children, friends, family, etc.) wanted me to be ... to the point where I start wondering, "who am I?" It's a comfort to know I'm not alone in this thing I do. Do I dare to know myself well enough to escape from this way of thinking? Anais Mitchell nails this subject ... beautifully, in my opinion.
