when i’m driving at night down a back road with a slow country song on the radio.
when i’m sitting at a coffee shop alone and there’s a cute couple sitting together laughing on the couch.
when it’s late and i’m feeling lonely. sometimes i think about texting you but the thought passes after a few seconds.
when it’s snowing outside.
when i’m at a concert and the artist says “i’m going to slow this next one down for ya.”
when i’m drunk.
when it’s raining and i can hear it hitting off the tin roof.
when the winter holidays start to roll in.
when i haven’t talked to a single person all day.
when i’m feeling vulnerable.
when i wake up and you’re not next to me.
when i wake up in the middle of the night and check my phone, only to see there are no unread messages.
when i think about the past and how much happier i was back then.
when i’m home alone for the night and i wish i had someone to call to keep me company.
the rare occasion when i watch a movie on the couch alone.
when i go out with my friends and they all go home with someone, and i go home alone.
when i hear Springsteen by Eric Church.
when i feel lower than low and have no one really here to help pick me up.
when i wake up to someone who isn’t you.
when i see the car you used to drive.
when i look around and wonder what i’m doing with my life without you.
