Songs in the Car



Josie and I are in the car.  “Because of You ” by Kelly Clarkson comes on. I sing a long.

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don’t get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afrai

“She’s so whiny,” Josie says.

“I love her voice,” I say.


And then Maroon 5’s  “Wake Up Call” comes on.

Caught you in the morning with another one in my bed
Don’t you care about me anymore?
Don’t you care about me?
I don’t think so.

“He’s so  whiny!” I mock.

Six foot tall
Came without a warning, so I had to shoot him dead
He won’t come around here anymore
Come around here?
I don’t think so.

“He took action,” she says.

By the way, Kelly Clarkson wrote “Because of You” when she was 16. It’s about her father, who abandoned his family when she was six years old.
