sometimes music cures the desperation

Driving is sometimes my last refuge from the rest of the world. For 30 minutes down the 405 gone are the pressures, the expectations, the ambitions and the failures. The destination is known so I can enjoy the ride. I wish I could say the same about life outside my car.

And sometimes the perfect song comes on and I wish the commute were just a little bit longer.

I love it when music cures the desperation.

"Head Over Heels (In This Life)"

Head over here and take me
Head over heels and aching
When I told you I was yours
I was yours

In this life, you're the one place I call home
In this life, you're the feeling I belong
In this life, you're the flower and the thorn
You're everything that's fair in love and war

I'm coming down like a gunshot
In all these battles I've fought
You're the mark I'm aiming for
I was yours

Head over heels

In this life I'm stubborn to the core
In this life I've been burning after more
We both know what these open arms are for
You're everything that's fair

In this life, you're my only one
