An even better song.

"Jaron and the Long Road to Love" is a band with a new song that is getting a lot of radio play these days. Love the name of the band (though may I suggest "Jaron and the Long Road to Love/Hate?") but I like the song even more.

I pray your brakes go out running down a hill
I pray a flower pot falls from a window sill
And knocks you in the head like I'd like to
I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls
I pray you're flying high when your engine stalls
I pray all your dreams never come true
Just know wherever you are honey, I pray for you."
