Drive (SL)

Story Behind The Song

When I was down to my last $5 in NYC, I did what any chic with a guitar would do: sublet my apartment, left town with that rent in my pocket and my guitar on my back, and took a job driving a stranger's car across the country. As expected, an odyssey ensued, and a song wafted off the pavement.

Lyrics

Mile after mile of empty highway
Sun hasn't crept into the sky
I gaze into the dark horizon
As Oklahoma passes by

I'm headed to the Tucson dessert
Where only ironwood survives
I don't know what else I'll find there
I just drive
I just drive

Rubber whines against the pavement
I hear the sound so I'm alive
Nothing more to fill the silence
I just drive
I just drive

Running to running from
Does it matter in the end?
Running like I'm out of time
Running round just one more bend
I just drive

Waves of heat lift off the tarmac
Burning off the morning dew
Sun glints off my rearview mirror
Horizon sharpens into view

If I knew what I would find there
I wouldn't have to take this ride
What keeps me moving is not knowing
I just drive
I just drive

Running to running from
Does it matter in the end?
Running like I'm out of time
Running round just one more bend
I just ride

We're all seeking some redemption
We all search in our own way
He'll reach the bottom of the bottle
Awake to see another day
She'll find her way to that thrown up in the sky
Me, I'll clock another mile
I just drive
I just drive
