| The song IS in the first person, but not necessarily autobiographical (Though I do hope it applies to many of us!, but it was originally something I wrote about my grandmother. She's had an eventful life, to say the least, with 6 kids and 6 stepkids, taking care of grandkids, and still found time to be amazing. I guess that many kids forces you to be resourceful!|
The line "I have sank, but learned to swim" actually refers to a cruise she took. She saved for a long time, and finally got to take her cruise, only to have the ship catch fire! Not the Titanic, but still...and she lived through it, and we laugh about it now...that's just the kind of woman she is. I find a lot of inspiration in her.
