I Don’t Want to Be a Bride
Rabbits on the Run
"This kind of buzz of anxiety that surrounds a lot of women when you hit a certain age - about marriage - I wish that didn’t exist. And I understand the whole pregnancy situation with women where if you want to have a child, you only have so much time. But you still can wait to your early 40s, you still could figure something out. I think it’s a bit unfair, because I think it shuts down a lot of women in their most exploratory phase of their life. I mean, I just turned 30 and I can’t even tell you how much more curious I am - I’m more curious now than I’ve ever been."
— Vanessa Carlton, Songfacts Interview
I didn’t really like the song at first as I thought the rhythm at the beginning was a bit off. But hey, it’s still a pretty way of making a solid statement :))
