Highway Don't Care


A month or two ago, Kevin and I had a stupid argument. I literally cannot remember a single detail. But it did end in me saying I needed to go for a drive. That's what I do....

It's what I've *always* done. I've always been the person who just drives to drive, just to get space, just to clear my head. Especially when I first started driving, my senior year of high school (when gas was still LESS THAN ONE DOLLAR per gallon). But that's a different point. This blog is about this fight. 

This stupid fight. This stupid fight that I handled stupidly. And then, the way the universe actually stepped in and saved me from making small problems bigger than needed. Dangerously bigger. Instead, the universe hit me upside the head with this beautiful song, that I had never heard before.

This song started playing just as a turned on the radio. I had made it two blocks away from the house. I stopped the car, found it using my iPhone Shazaam app, and sobbed til I was dehydrated. I turned the car back around those two blocks, then went back to see that amazing man I call mine.

"Highway Don't Care"

By Tim McGraw (feat. Keith Urban & Taylor Swift)


Bet your window's rolled down and your hair's pulled back
And I bet you got no idea you're going way too fast
You're trying not to think about what went wrong
Trying not to stop 'til you get where you goin'
You're trying to stay awake so I bet you turn on the radio
And the song goes


I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby

I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby, baby



The highway won't hold you tonight

The highway don't know you're alive
The highway don't care if you're all alone
But I do, I do.
The highway won't dry your tears
The highway don't need you here
The highway don't care if you're coming home
But I do, I do.



I bet you got a dead cell phone in your shotgun seat

Yeah, I bet you're bending God's ear talking 'bout me.
You're trying not to let the first tear fall out
Trying not to think about turning around
You're trying not to get lost in the sound but that song is always on
So you sing along



I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby

I can't live without I can't live without you baby, oh baby



The highway won't hold you tonight

The highway don't know you're alive
The highway don't care if you're all alone
But I do, I do.
The highway won't dry your tears
The highway don't need you here
The highway don't care if you're coming home
But I do, I do.



I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby

I can't live without I can't live without you, baby, oh baby



The highway don't care

The highway don't care
The highway don't care
But I do, I do.



I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby

I can't live without I can't live without you, baby, oh baby
(The highway don't care
The highway don't care
The highway don't care
But I do, I do)
[x3]



I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby
