I wish I had done that

I don’t know what you guys feel, but I find that the lyrics of a lot of songs on the pop charts are rather puerile or filled
with double entendre.

Which is why I’ve almost stopped listening to recent releases.
So I was rather stunned to hear a song on the waves begin with following verse:

I'm changing lanes
I'm talking on the phone
I'm drivin' way to fast
And the interstate's jammed with
Gunners like me afraid of coming in last
But somewhere in the race we run
We're coming undone

Days go by
I can feel 'em flying
Like a hand out the window in the wind as the cars go by
It's all we've been given
So you better start livin' right now
'Cause days go by

Just when I started breathing again, the song picked up...

Out on the roof just the other night
I watched the world flash by
Headlights, taillights running through a river of neon signs
But somewhere in the rush I felt
We're losing ourselves

We think about tomorrow then it slips away
We talk about forever but we've only got today

I was wondering, just who has the courage to write a simple song about life in these times of exploitative themes?

Turns out the song is by Keith Urban.
The song is called "Days Go By".
See it with your eyes closed at
When the song ended there was just one thought in the mind of this wannabe songwriter:
“I wish I had done that!”
By the way Keith is married to Nicole Kidman.
I wish I had done that too.
