• I'm doin' seventy-two in a sixty-five,
    On I-24 in a four-wheel drive
    Got a ten o'clock on eighteenth avenue

    And there's a thirty percent chance of rain all week
    And the high today is gonna be eighty-three
    They're playing highway 101 on 102.5
    An eighteen wheeler by my side

    Numbers all around, flying by, ups and downs,
    Some as slow as Christmas coming, some like the speed of sound,
    And we all wonder, what they mean,
    The highs, the lows, the in betweens,
    Most of them mean absolutely nothing
    But some of them mean everything

    I met her at 9:15 on my buddy's back porch
    Shootin' bottle rockets on July fourth
    We were both nineteen and she was a perfect 10,

    Then three years later 'neath a million stars,
    In my f-150 on her granddad's farm,
    I slipped a half-carat diamond on the third finger, of her left hand
    And asked to be her one and only man

    Numbers all around, flying by, ups and downs,
    Some as slow as Christmas coming, some like the speed of sound,
    And we all wonder, what they mean,
    The highs, the lows, the in betweens,
    Most of them mean absolutely nothing
    But some of them mean everything

    John 3:16, the fab four,
    The fifty yard line, the thirteenth floor,
    9/11, the dirty dozen,
    We're all waiting on the second coming

    Numbers all around, flying by, ups and downs,
    Some as slow as Christmas coming, some like the speed of sound,
    And we all wonder, what they mean,
    The highs, the lows, the in betweens,
    Most of them mean absolutely nothing,
    Aw most of them mean absolutely nothing,
    But some of them mean everything
    Aw numbers

    I'm doin' seventy-two in a sixty-five,
    On I-24 in a four-wheel drive
    Got a ten o'clock on eighteenth avenueWriter/s: RODNEY CLAWSON, RUSSELL DAVIS
