It's been a long time since I was in a situation where I was racing home to see my significant other. But that doesn't mean I no longer think about the way that felt. I can remember working long, boring, banal days in the Mailroom in North Jersey, hating every second of my day and night, hating my co-workers but when I would get in my car at the end of the day it was like everything surged inside of me.
I felt everything inside of me wake up. I wanted to be home with my person and there was nothing in the world that could stop me. Even though I don't have that anymore, I don't dwell on it too much. I embrace the feeling I once had and I'm glad I can look back on it with happiness instead of resentment.
Even though the song below is a Aaron West's rendition of The Mountain Goats' Going to Geogia, I feel like it reflects the emotion of the song a lot better than the original (whoops, sorry) and Dan Campbell's vocals aren't as nasal-y which is something I, personally, enjoy.
The most remarkable thing about you standing in the doorway is that it's you and that you are standing in the doorway. And you smile as you ease the gun from my hand. I am frozen with joy right where I stand. The world throws its light underneath your hair. 40 miles from Atlanta, this is nowhere.
