“My Life” by Billy Joel is my theme song.

I’m a Long Islander, I’m required to make a Billy Joel song my theme song.

Lyrics under the cut.

Got a call from an old friend
We used to be real close
Said he couldn’t go on the American way
Closed the shop, sold the house
Bought a ticket to the West Coast
Now he gives them a stand-up routine in L.A.

I don’t need you to worry for me cause I’m alright
I don’t want you to tell me it’s time to come home
I don’t care what you say anymore, this is my life
Go ahead with your own life, and leave me alone

I never said you had to offer me a second chance
(I never said you had to)
I never said I was a victim of circumstance
(I never said)
I still belong, don’t get me wrong
And you can speak your mind
But not on my time

They will tell you, you can’t sleep alone in a strange place
Then they’ll tell you, you can’t sleep with somebody else
Ah, but sooner or later you sleep in your own space
Either way it’s okay, you wake up with yourself

I don’t need you to worry for me cause I’m alright
I don’t want you to tell me it’s time to come home
I don’t care what you say anymore, this is my life
Go ahead with your own life, and leave me alone

I never said you had to offer me a second chance
(I never said you had to)
I never said I was a victim of circumstance
(Of cirumstance)
I still belong, don’t get me wrong
And you can speak your mind
But not on my time

I don’t care what you say anymore, this is my life
Go ahead with your own life, and leave me alone

(Keep it to yourself, it’s my life.)
(Keep it to yourself, it’s my life.)
(Keep it to yourself, it’s my life.)
(Keep it to yourself, it’s my life.)
