Since magic is a fictional concept Gasp! I know! Music can make us feel better when nothing and no one else seems to be able to. If you got into an argument with a friend or a parent, there's a song for that. If you failed a really important exam, there's a song for that. If you're mending a broken heart or fighting with a lover, there's a song for that, too.
I've been traveling over mountains Even through the valleys, too I've been traveling night and day I've been running all the way Baby, trying to get to you. Ever since I read your letter Where you said you loved me true I've been traveling night and day I've been running all the way baby, trying to get to you. When I read your loving letter Then my heart began to sing There were many miles between us, But they didn't mean a thing.
Not that the idea remained intact. Hurd originally envisioned the concept as a portrait of perpetual, never-ending heartbreak were he to separate from his wife, Maren Morris. You just kind of muse on the pain. Green quickly found an ascendant chorus melody, and the lyric began to take shape with the first verse establishing a heartbreak that comes in waves. The chorus ponders whether time might not heal all wounds, and the second verse imagines a future where the protagonist has a new partner, but remains haunted by the ex.
