Drive For Hours

For Tanja

My beating heart
A second start
I don't know
What I can do
All that I try
Don't seem to be worthwhile
I sit alone
Stare at the phone

The little car outside
Will simply catch my eye
And without thinking I'll get in

So I will drive for hours
And try to calm my mind
So I will drive for hours
And waste my time
Nothing else will give me peace
Except the car and you
So I will drive for hours
And waste the fuel

Today we'll meet
Just like every week
This time I know
I'm telling you
But when you're near
My mind is blocked with fear
So that I cannot say a thing

So I will drive for hours
So I will drive for hours

This feeling's all so new
I can't believe it's true
Today my second life begins

So I will drive for hours
And try to calm my mind
So I will drive for hours
And waste my time
Nothing else will give me peace
Except the car and you
So I will drive for hours
And waste the fuel
Nothing else will give me peace
Except the car and you
So I will drive for hours
And think of you
So I will drive for hours
So I will drive for hours

April 27, 1989. The "little car" was a Volkswagen Bug; they called it that in the Love Bug movies, so I thought I'd borrow that one.
