"Highway Don't Care" as written by and Brad Warren Mark Irwin....
Bet your window's rolled down and your hair's pulled back
And I bet you got no idea you're going way too fast
You're trying not to think about what went wrong
Trying not to stop 'til you get where you goin'
You're trying to stay awake so I bet you turn on the radio and the song goes

I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby
I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby, baby

The highway won't hold you tonight
The highway don't know you're alive
The highway don't care if you're all alone, but I do, I do.
The highway won't dry your tears
The highway don't need you here
The highway don't care if you're coming home, but I do, I do.

I bet you got a dead cell phone in your shotgun seat
Yeah, I bet you're bending God's ear talking 'bout me.
You're trying not to let the first tear fall out
Trying not to think about turning around
You're trying not to get lost in the sound but that song is always on, so you sing along

I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby
I can't live without you I can't live without you baby, oh baby

The highway won't hold you tonight
The highway don't know you're alive
The highway don't care if you're all alone, but I do, I do.
The highway won't dry your tears
The highway don't need you here
The highway don't care if you're coming home, but I do, I do.

I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby
I can't live without you I can't live without you, baby, oh baby

The highway don't care
The highway don't care
The highway don't care, but I do, I do.

I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby (The highway don't care, the highway don't care)
I can't live without you I can't live without you, baby, oh baby (The highway don't care, but I do, I do)

I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby (The highway don't care, the highway don't care)
I can't live without you I can't live without you, baby (The highway don't care, but I do I do)

I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby (The highway don't care, the highway don't care)
I can't live without you I can't live without you, baby, oh baby (The highway don't care, but I do I do)

I can't live without you, I can't live without you, baby

    Song MeaningThe first verse of the song is explaining that a woman is in a car at an unsafe speed. She has gotten into a fight, most likely with her partner so she decides to drive off to calm down. "You're trying to stay awake" signals that it might be late at night.

    The chorus is saying that the woman is at death's door and that the highway doesn't care who you are and will show no mercy.

    The second verse tells how she is with God, talking to him about the person she got into a fight with. While driving, she's on the verge of tears and she's holding them back all while trying not to go back home. She's not answering her phone which tells the partner that her phone is dead. She then starts to sing along with the song that is on the radio to forget the fight.

    The combination of tiredness, tears in her eyes, the fact that she was not paying attention to the road, along with her checking or plugging in her phone caused her to crash.

    General CommentHere's what i think this song means.
    The "I can't live without you i can't live without baby" is because if you watch the video, she's going too fast hence the "I bet you have no idea your going to fast" and her car crashes. I think basically this song is about a couple who got into a fight and she left for a while so shes on her way home and her car crashes. But you never know.

    My OpinionI think this song is about how a couple got into a fight and now the girl is driving away so she can forget what happened between them. Then she wants to see if he texted her or not (HINT: I bet you got a dead cell phone in your shotgun seat
    Yeah, I bet you're bending God's ear talking 'bout me.) and she gets into a car crush and he saves her. Since he is the doctor....
