Lyrics – Drive, Drive

Drive, Drive

words and music © 1994, Kate MacColl

Eating up miles in a low El Dorado, perpetual highway and rain, rain, rain
Heading southeast to Texas I don’t know why, all I know is I must drive, drive
Though I’ve never been there I’ve got to go again

Everything has a rhythm at night, the engine, the breathing, the headlights, and the dark
Heading southeast to Texas I don’t know why, all I know is I must drive, drive
Going home to the place where I will leave my mark

DRIVE, DRIVE, AND THE DAYS DIE FAST, DRIVE DRIVE, AND THE NIGHTTIME LASTS
AM I REALLY STARTING SOMETHING NEW, OR JUST
RETURNING TO WHAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN?
DRIVE, DRIVE, DRIVE

Keep crossing over the Colorado River, desert, mountains, red-orange sunset stains
Heading southeast to Texas I don’t know why, all I know is I must drive, drive
The more things change the more they stay the same

CHORUS

Everything has a rhythm at night, deserts, mountains, red-orange sunset stains, the more things
Change…the more things change…the more things change the more they stay the same

CHORUS
