Story Behind the Song

Chap stuck in a traffic jam and makes the most of it.

Lyrics

A jack-knifed lorry has spilt its load
Traffic builds way down the road
I'm going to be late, I was always going to be
Does that say more about them or more about me?

Children in a nearby car act restless, there's a man having trouble with his head rest, police cars fly past on the hard shoulder, they're at the scene now all set to take over

Hear traffic updates from a car radio, car windows down letting everybody know, it's gonna be a while, be prepared to wait, here we are near junction 8


People stand around talking by the central reservation, it's moments like these that can really test your inner patience, then strangers come together an act like old friends, a man is on the phone to his wife "dinners in the dog again!"

An 80s pop song is blaring out, a car is over heating the driver gets out, a lady checks her hand break and knocks her furry dice, she looks nice, we both meet eyes

I can't wait to get home and watch tv, then it dawned on me I'm looking at a screen, I get out the car and ask if folk are fine, I asked the girl with dice if she is free sometime


People laugh and joke and make the best of a situation, these are people who will pass you by on many occasions, Girl with fluffy dice says lets have a date now in her car, so we sit down side by side talk about our journeys so far

The evenings drawing in and I don't have a coat, there is movement up ahead, they have cleared the lorries load, Kirsty-lou is her name and she's a journalist, she likes Italian food and she's partial to some ribs,

I gave her my card and she gave me her dice, a shitty situation has turned out alright, she kissed me on the cheek, her eyes were full of hope, i helped her with her column, we were making notes,

It was no apocalypse, It was no zombie attack, it was hundreds of people with someone at the back, laughter kept us going as mobile phones died, some just started walking moved cars off to the side

I forgot about my hunger
I forgot to get her number
I forgot to ignore strangers
Cause we needed each other
As soon as I get in I will charge my phone
And see if she has text me
I'd like to thank that lorry driver, I heard he got home
