There were no stars in the sky, but there was rain
Like shards of glass caught in two tunnels of light
The wind held the car like a coin it could flip
Across lonely lanes of endless highway.
Time races and resists with bold indifference:
Thoughts linger, like breath caught by cold air
Songs you’ve never heard before fill eternities
Hours blur like the wipers on the windshield
The trees are shrouded in darkness that echoes
Like a dream brought to life where sense loses meaning
And space is more metaphor than something between us
We learn the madness of going forever in a straight line
We promise Elton we won’t break his heart
And tell our parents we’ll get to the church on time
Silences between songs as warm as heated conversation
And whatever we are is now infinite
It would have been so easy to break down or get lost,
That to keep going is enough.
Those nights where you can’t see past the high beams
And the only reason you’re not scared is because you’re not alone.
