Nowhere Fast

It's hard to drive forward
Looking in the rear view mirror 
I'm driving really fast
To get away from here

When did my life become
A country song cliche
Should I pick up a guitar
To sing my blues away

If I had me a dog
It would leave me real soon
The Worlds driving me crazy
A perpetual full moon

Feelings of confusion
Several forks in the road
It's tough to keep going
Under a heavy load

That girl called to Jesus 
Asked him to take the wheel
I really do get it
It finally seems so real

No more looking backwards
I hum too a different beat
Life is a lot less stressful
I like the passenger seat

I know my destination
Will be where I need to go
I was going nowhere fast
Jesus says let's take it slow

    I think this could be structured into a pretty good song.

    Hey, this was great fun to read. And I like the references to other country songs. I sure love country music and this has a great message in it.

    I don't listen to country that much but I do like Carrie's song. I have enjoyed that county girl Cree on American Idol.

    This is one of your most profound yet... and it flows so effortlessly. I've always loved that song and I love how you included it. It's probably the only Carrie Underwood song I care for. This was really refreshing to read and calms me down a bit... especially after watching a very disturbing clip about the Truth Revealed, on what people our doing to our atmosphere with toxic aluminum particles... *sigh*... I should heed your advice and sit my butt on the passenger seat!! Thanks for this...

    It's a hard one to do especialy when you love driving. The problem is that most of us have defective GPS
