As The Crow Flies

I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos lately and looking up songs from TV shows and movies.  If you're not aware, YouTube is a giant rabbit hole.

One of my favorite TV shows, from its inception, is Nashville.  I love the characters (I have an extremely cheesy gene), and I love the music.  If you've been following the lives of Scarlett and Gunnar.  In the season finale, Gunnar finally tells Scarlett - after being cast aside more than once because of her insecurities, performing fears, other men, etc. - that he can't be with her anymore. The song, knowing the history of their relationship is fitting, beautiful, and sad.

"As The Crow Flies"

(performed by Sam Palladio & Clare Bowen)

If I've wasted your time

I'm sorry my love
Thoughtless and careless
Oh I was young
And like a ship in the night
I watched you pass by
I wish that I may
I wish that I might
Get back to you

I'll chart a course that's straight to your heart

Follow the light from a northernmost star
I'll love, I'll love like I couldn't before
I'm here and I'm yours
I'm yours

And I'll get to you
The quickest I can

One if by sea
Two if by land

No wandering this time
I'd draw a straight line
As the crow flies
As the crow flies
