Not Your Confidante

One of the guys I work with put a CD in today while we were working...as the song started, I couldn't help thinking of Ryan. I asked him to play it again so I could listen to it more closely...once I heard the first couple of lines, I realized it was the song that Ryan had set as the background music to one of the videos he made, "Yakistan"...

Audioslave - I Am The Highway Lyrics
Pearls and swine bereft of me
Long and weary my road has been
I was lost in the cities
Alone in the hills
No sorrow or pity for leaving I feel

[CHORUS]
I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky

Friends and liars don't wait for me
I'll get on all by myself
I put millions of miles
Under my heels
And still too close to you
I feel

[CHORUS]
I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind
I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon
I am the night

I hear a song and I like it, but it's the lyrics that make me love a song. This one to me, makes me think of Ryan.
