lyrics

This old car, running through the night
You’re my company in the flash of headlights.
My body aches, oh I haven’t slept for days
But the thought of you is keeping me awake.

One more drink was as long as I’d stay
When you sat by me and asked for my name.
You told me of how you came and how you went
A stranger that night, a night well spent.

Six days now since New Orleans
Wish I could go back, but the road’s got me.
My memories and the letters that I wrote
Could never compare to that first night we spoke.

I read those words and the letters that you sent
Of all the places you’d been and all the people you’d met.
And in those notes you made sure to let me know
Where you would be next and hoped that I’d go.
(And I hoped that you’d go)

Took up leave
(Could not believe)
To where we’d meet
(You were here with me)
Here with me
(You were here with me)

This old car, running through the night
You’re my company in the flash of headlights.
Long time gone since we met that day
Now the warmth of you is keeping me awake.

Six years now since New Orleans
We were worlds apart, you stood by me.
We’ll tell them of how we came and how we went
Down endless highways, a life well spent.
