Firming Up Lyrics

I’m a picky girl, looking for
A needle in a haystack
My friends say give him a try
You could end up liking this guy
But something isn’t right
Like an animal instinct
I know he’s not my type

I have a list that goes on and on
But all I really want is
A guy who knows all that I desire
Someone hot enough to set me on fire
The feisty fish that’s hard to catch
Someone to tell me, you’ve met your match

I don’t mind firming up
But I refuse to settle down
I got a mind of my own
I’m not afraid to be alone
It is my right to be picky
There’s lots of fish in the sea
I know what I’m looking for
I won’t back down I deserve much more

This guy on my list he’s gotta exist
All he has to be is:
A real man who isn’t fooled by cheap bait
Keeps me interested and is worth the wait
The guy in the crowd, who’s my biggest fan
Someone who doesn’t need to be my superman

I don’t mind firming up
But I refuse to settle down
I got a mind of my own
I’m not afraid to be alone
It is my right to be picky
There’s lots of fish in the sea
I know what I’m looking for
I won’t back down I deserve much more

When my friends start pairing off
I might end up all alone
But I’d rather be single for eternity
Than to settle for someone who’s not right for me

I don’t mind firming up
But I refuse to settle down

Story Behind This Song

I've never liked the term "settling down".  It seems so negative, I mean dust settles, people MOVE!!  Therefore I think Firming Up seems like a brighter way to phrase sticking with someone and being committed to them!  Also, it can be just as great being by yourself if you can't find  anyone that is right for you, never settle!  

There are some people that really do dream about the traditional path in life, get married, buy a house, and have kids.  They feel that their life will not be complete until they have all of those things.  That is great for those people but for other like me, I just have different goals in life and so many things I want to explore and get out of life, especially living in a place like San Diego and having hobbies like I do! I don't even think I literally have time for a guy, unless they are completely for me and get me and are willing to put up with me.  If I don't ever find it, I'll be fine, as my song says, I'd rather be single for eternity than to settle for someone who's not right for me!  That's another reason why I just know I'll never find a guy through a dating site. If I ever find someone,  I'm gonna find him when I'm out there doing what I love and he's out there doing what he loves and not just searching for someone to go through the traditional motions of life with!

So don't settle for good enough, go out there and go after what you're passionate about and ya might find somebody you're passionate about that's passionate about you along the way!
