The first time I read "Message in a Bottle" by Nicholas Sparks was about ten years ago. So it was a little startling to me when I was listening to the radio the other day and heard a song that immediately brought the book to mind. It's amazing how much a book can stick with you.
From the book:
"He was in the middle of the road now, running behind the car, his feet splashing through the puddles that had already begun to form. The brake lights blinked for a second, then steadied as the car came to a halt. Rain and mist swirled around it, making it look like a mirage. Garrett knew she was watching him in the rear-view mirror, watching him close the distance. There's still a chance..."
"Stumble out, in the night
From the pouring rain
Made the block, sat and thought
There's more I need
It's always back to you. . .
How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time but I'm shattered
I always turn the car around "
