Wide open road, the time got away We drove through the night, I asked you to stay You slept in my arms until the morning light It’s all new to me, and I don’t know why, but it all gets so easy when I’m with you It happened so fast, it feels like a dream Give up your past and take what you need
all the light will fall through the dusk and the moon will fail as it must when my memory trips and my lifeline slips i will be free all the tar and poison soils the wind and a deep dispassion salts my wounds and when i fall prey to the smog and decay i will be free
San Jose has seen a rain like buckets, cats, and ed sheeran And I could bike, instead I drive. baby that interstate will be my end. On a freeway, the I-280, baby, oh I’m gonna die, hydroplane into the divide without time to get my things in line There’s a will, I wrote before we met in twenty fifteen, who gets this rhodes, and who gets the laptop on which I’m recording But on that freeway, if I die baby, the light will come suddenly to me When I die who will get my google drive I really hope for you A quick recovery, And find someone new But here is one thing I want you to have the most of all: 1234 69 Star Wars The hint is duh please sex and movie
In car on my way to move Eugene In heart something tells me, "Ben, believe” In heart I am worried this will fail In car something tells me, "love prevail”
When we first got married I was very impressed Then she revealed everything that she had repressed And by the end we were both severely depressed And I didn’t know where to go Parked near the 15 in my brand new car Kate and I were married but were drifting apart She started dating someone and we weren’t even divorced So I put on Carrie & Lowell And I start driving, I start driving I can’t stop crying, can’t stop crying She keeps lying, she keeps lying And I hope somebody kills me Well in 2013 she called me up at night She was sitting in our living room and holding a knife Said she was thinking about ending her life And I should probably come home soon She drove her mind into a frantic state I gave her everything and drove her away So I drove alone to Provo every single day Crying to Harry Nilsson’s “Living Without You” And I start driving, I start driving I can’t stop crying, can’t stop crying She keeps lying, she keeps lying And I hope somebody kills me I wanna die I wish I could die I really really really wish that someone would kill me Crash into my car and kill me I hope somebody kills me I wanna die
All, all of these lanes Not enough exits. I see no one's face. No one sees me. They can't be free at such limited speeds, And no one seems to care. I could try new roads And leave my mountain home. And it's the change I fear So it keeps me here Shifting lanes and gears Limits firm and clear. Some some know the Just not me. Most most are just late Just like me. In such construction no progress is made, And somehow I still stay.
A minute is a lifetime When you’re a child riding on the highway The moments pass so slowly as Little foreheads press against the glass Oh, the winds blow as swiftly as in ages past And the cars are moving fast but not much faster Heaven knows why the time is spinning uncontrolled We’ve grown old May childish eyes bear us away To a time and place beyond our reaching And tiny birds and butterflies Guide us softly to a safer space Though my mind may try to keep me grounded And my body may keep me in my chair Passing sky will keep ourselves delivered Come what may
Eye to eye I plead through the glass with the sky I have these stories I try To tell myself while I drive I keep to myself visions I won't tell ya Like where we live on a farm And I work in the stable What tender hearts We have in this story I feed all the pets and You never call me boring I've never cried When I see you up there Floating high So why don't I commit for a while To your sunshine? Blue or Grey, or golden, pink, and green some days All the same to me I love you every way
Its one of those those days when driving isn't so old the can’t stop thinking of road the can't stop thinking of home I never tried I never put it out of mind it’s always there it will always be my mind on the road
Sunlight Keep me in your grip Night drive Leave me with my wits Soundbites Wholly upset fits Brake lights Draw away my sadness All my stuff Tetris trunk All my love Keep in touch
as i wander thru the valley of the shadow of rio what i see oh as i ponder on the keepers of the valley the believers of rio what i see oh it breaks my heart can we start once again? it's the hardest part to win
I don’t like driving I hate the freeway But I guess I don't mind Being where you are I dread the traffic I feel the tension But then you call me And I’m in my car Chorus I take the 101 to the 280 And baby, lately, the 85 I never loved the road; I take convincing But you’re the real thing, you make me want to go and drive I know I’m changing I've made exceptions And then amendments To please my heart Some things go missing I feel the difference Don’t always like it But here we are Ch So here’s the question will I go missing? I feel my borders start caving in This ain’t just us, babe The work of loving is staying human while buying in Ch
She is a peak She is a valley I am the road that led us here Just want to speak Don’t care if they find me All of the heat ripping the air I am itchy feet I am divided Two yellow lines recede from view Follow my eyes Trace every line To where the horizon meets my ground Just want to speak Don’t care if they find me Tracing the lines through heavy air Too bright to see Too close for comfort Searching for destination signs
You’re falling sleep. Let’s take the long way home. There’s no-one around. It’s just you and me alone. On our way back home no-one knows where we roam as long as we’re alone on our way back home You have your window down The moonlight coming through. The radio’s soft It’s singing something blue. We’ll be alright. A sky of satellites and the moonlight. We’ll be alright. Father forgive The passion of the night. We don’t do it for hate We only do what is right. We believe in love Hands fit in empty gloves Just like you above We believe in love.
