"My Saddle Is Waitin' (C'mon Jump On It)" as written by and Aimme C Argote....
I wanna die with a halo on my head
For all my friends
I need to find a place to lay low
Where I can learn to be good to them
I wanna saddle up at sunrise
After the death of a dusty night
Oh, in a cabin in the Carolines
Where ain't nobody gonna find me

Oh to be perfect for the ones we love
I gave it a shot, but I am not
And I never was
If I keep dragging all these anchors
Across my scars
I ain't never gonna heal at all

You know you died with a halo on your head
For all your friends
If you had asked, we would have said so
That you had learned to be good to them

Oh to be perfect for the ones we love
I gave it a shot, but I am not
And I never was
If I keep dragging all these anchors
Across my scars
I ain't never gonna heal at all

I know I'm dying alone
I know that my drinking
Makes this hospice feel like a home
And I know I'm using drugs every morning
When I wake up
To quiet the symphonies of lovers
Who sing so sweetly to me

They will sing sunshine
And this is what they said
I'd love to keep on loving you, my dear
But you're already dead

    General CommentI think it's about dealing with depression and wanting to be perfect, not for yourself but to please other people, but inevitably failing to be perfect, and unintentionally pushing people away because of the depression, which only becomes worse because you are not loved.
