A late-night conversation

Tonight, as I was driving home, I was locked in an extremely important conversation with myself. I was going back and forth over a few things, trying to figure them out. It was quite like a math problem that you have done over and over and over in the examples, but the variables don't quite look the same once you get them on a test.

I was talking to myself, trying to work through the problem, explaining it as best I could out loud, because I knew I'd have to do it soon.

But when Blake Shelton's "Nobody But Me" came on the radio and broke into my concentration, I knew what I was doing, the problem crystalized, and I knew my solutions.

Then, though, there was that strange fear that the solutions wouldn't ever pan out, that they wouldn't ever be available. And there was some wonder if I could live with that.

But, in the end, I know I could.

I know I can make it on my own if I try
But I'm searchin' for a great heart to stand me by
