country roads

this song reminds me of driving to my grandpas house at night. the iowa country side, rolling fields of blackness and stars so bright. the moon illuminating the road that takes me home, the rode that takes me back.
this song reminds me of all those hours spent in the car with people i love, driving, feet on the dash, speeding toward what lies ahead, speeding away from what we've left behind, to a place we have only seen in glimpses and dreams

I roll the window down
And then begin to breathe in
The darkest country road
And the strong scent of evergreen
From the passenger seat as you are driving me home.
Then looking upwards
I strain my eyes and try
To tell the difference between shooting stars and satellites
From the passenger seat as you are driving me home.
"do they collide?"
I ask and you smile.
With my feet on the dash
The world doesn't matter.
When you feel embarrassed then i'll be your pride
When you need directions then i'll be the guide
For all time.
For all time.
