About the song

Last year some women responded to Sarah Palin by identifying with her: "I am Sarah Palin!" I often responded by saying, "I was Bristol Palin"...

I wrote this song after coming out of the dark & confused place it portrays. I need to make clear that I am eternally grateful for the presence of my (now quite grown) son in my life and ever so proud of him for surviving *me* as a mother (eek!). But when you're 22 and confused, this is how it sometimes feels...
Made too young a mother - a child with a child
Loose at night in Hollywood, running drugs and running wild
Lying through my teeth, I was lying when I smiled

Doing what I damn well pleased and pleasing what I could
I was raised on should and shouldn't
Lord, I was raised up on bad & good
and I threw it all away just as soon as I could

O dear Jesus, save me from what appears to be my life
I was made too young a mother
I was made too young a wife
But now I've got to live it - and I've got to try to live it right

It's not like they didn't tell me
It's not like they didn't warn me
It's not like there's anyone to blame but me
Somehow I thought that I was different
Somehow I thought I was exempt
Somehow I never thought I'd come to this

Tell me, is there someplace you can go
to inquire about your hand?
To ask for a fresh deck of cards
To ask, ask about the plan?
And see if you can change it
And change it, if you can--
