    General CommentOh, I am definitely Miss Ohio (and luckily from the Buckeye State). Such a great song, by Ms. Welch.

    About a girl that just doesn't know what she wants, but she knows that she's not ready for a strong commitment, marriage or any part of the white picket fence theory. Just wants to live and eventually do the right things, just not right now. Story of my life!

    General CommentInterestingly, the line "I want to do right but not right now" echoes a famous prayer of St Augustine, made while he was a teenager (and a manichean) which could be rendered as follows: "Lord, make me good, but not just yet". Here the line is detached from a religious context but the sentiment appears to be similar! A nice allusion to the dualities of human nature. Maybe Miss Ohio went on to be good after all ... or maybe not ...
