as fast as he can

0 Permalink 0

i received an email from a dear friend today. in it, she described how she and her husband had been singing and dancing to the latest josh turner album during last night’s dinner when the song “as fast as i could” came on:

I heard this song and actually listened to the words….I thought of you. Eventually, this will be a song that your husband will sing as his life’s banner song. 😉 Hope the link works and that you love it and it makes you smile.

and then she provided a link to a youtube video.

after looking up the lyrics for myself, turner’s song really does go with that whole “he’s just stuck in traffic” metaphor i’ve been using for years with relation to the location of my future hubs.

Baby, I know that you’ve been waiting patiently
For a man to give you all that you need
And love you like he should
Stickin’ to your guns
Lookin’ for the right one
Just somebody who treats you good
It took me a while, but I got here
As fast as I could

I ran full speed ahead
Without stoppin’ to rest
No knowin’ where I was headed to
Now that I’m here
It’s perfectly clear
That I was makin’ my way to you
I can’t believe how long it took
But I got here as fast as I could

I’ve ended up on at least a hundred dead-end roads
Where my heart and I just wound up broke
Lost and misunderstood
I tried to rush
Findin’ true love
It didn’t pan out like I though it would
It took me some time, but I got here
As fast as I could

I ran full speed ahead
Without stoppin’ to rest
No knowin’ where I was headed to
Now that I’m here
It’s perfectly clear
That I was makin’ my way to you
I can’t believe how long it took
But I got here as fast as I could

I ran full speed ahead
Without stoppin’ to rest
No knowin’ where I was headed to
Now that I’m here
It’s perfectly clear
That I was makin’ my way to you
I can’t believe how long it took
But I got here as fast as I could

Yeah, I got here as fast as I could
