It sounds a bit precious to me, but maybe someone could make it work in the right song. I don't do that sort of stuff any more. You get to the age when you realise that your own feelings are no more "sensitive" than anyone else's.
We had quite a good thread about personal songs a couple of years back. I think they are pretty dangerous territory for all but the most accomplished writers. The problem is, (in my humble opinion), that the most important quality of a good song is resonance. That is less likely to be achieved if you are preoccupied with your own dramas. I am getting off the subject now, though aren't I? I wonder who else is going to step forward and own up?
