Acoustic Country/Folk style song. The lyric deals with someone escaping from a difficult or contentious situation.

Story Behind the Song

Just for a change I tried to write a Country style song, which is rare for me.

Nice build to the chorus. Nice overall vibe of song.

    - Sam Cooper

The song has a nice feel too it. It has an "old school" feel to it, which is always refreshing to hear. The arrangement, instrumentation and vocal presentation all kept me engaged throughout the song. The lyrics tell a story and keep you wondering where the sing is going to take you next. I enjoyed listening to it. Nicely done.

    - Nick Berry
Lyrics

Harsh light shines through your dark glasses
How right you are
Inch by inch, mile by mile
Past forest, farms and bars

Feeling like a burnt-out candle
Wax dripping from a flame

Drive, drive, won't you drive

Absence makes the heart beat faster
An image on your mind
Fail-safe insecurity
Tough magic of a kind

Creaking like a warn-out handle
Doors open just the same

Drive, drive, won't you drive
Drive, drive, won't you drive

Sitting here while time just traces
Fallen leaves and lost embraces
Moving through the wildest places
Occupying empty spaces
Harsh light shines through your dark glasses
You've come so far
Through little towns with packed suitcases
Churches, farms and barns

Fleeing from some secret scandal
No-one else to blame

Drive, drive, won't you drive
Drive, drive, won't you drive

Sitting here while time just erases
Fallen tears and lost embraces
Moving through the wildest places
Occupying empty spaces

Drive, drive, won't you drive
Drive, drive, won't you drive
Drive, drive, won't you drive
