A short break in the rain
and I can still remember how the gentle drops
hit the cars roof
like a tin can
as we speed on
into some unforseen horizon
scared by street signs and stop lights
80 miles per hour
down the interstate
just you, me and our old Smith's tapes
(you know, louder than bombs, the one you love)
and how every time you kissed my cheek
I wanted it to be time to stop
but It never was time to stop
so we drove
we drove for 6 hours
we drove straigt into the sunrise
becasue we where so sick of sunsets
and the rain decided to go the other way
and it left us feeling all warm and new
but despite it all
the long hours
and the silence
you sat beside me
and didn't close your eyes
you stayed up
you and me, we drive
we drive because we are so afraid to stop
and face the fact that we are everything we ever thought we couldn't be
you and I, we drive...
