I've always felt that the song "The Rose" by Bette Midler if you listen to the words fits us that suffer from SA. What do you think?.
:agree I secretly really like bette midler but I never tell anyone because once I said it to someone and I got laughed at which of course gave a huge anxiety attack. But there is one song of hers that I really love called "bed of roses" which is really soothing/depressing but you really have to hear her sing it to get the full impact, and there is one line (highlighted in red) that gets me everytime becuase it really sums up how my life feels to me:

Bette Midler: "Bed of Roses"

Long, long ago, where the tall grass grows
and the still air is sweet with summer flowers;
in the shade by the stream I would lie awake and dream,
and in dreaming I would while away the hours.

Long, long gone yesterday,
and the castle and the prince and the God to whom I prayed.
Well, I made, and I'm gonna lie in this bed of roses.
I'm tired of trying to be free.
Gonna lay down like a sigh in my bed of roses.
Bed of roses I believed my life would be.

Well, I wasted years,
all the useless, bitter tears.
If I'd known I'd have stopped it at the start.
I knew life was long,
and I knew life could go wrong,
but I never knew my life would break my heart.


Dreams die harder than pride.
I have learned my lesson well.
I will put them both aside.
'Cause I made and I'm gonna lie in this bed of roses.
I'm tired and I'm dying to be free.
Gonna lay down like a sigh in my bed of roses.
Bed of roses I believed my life would be.

Roses die, and all the fairy tales are lies,
and I guess that's just too bad for poor old me.
'Cause I made, and I'm gonna lie in my bed of roses.
Bed of roses I believed my life would be.
Bed of roses I believed my life would be.
