She wanted to start over …..

Got in her car ….. and began to drive………

 

 

Drive

Each note he played – played in her heart

Each word he sang was just the start

She thought about her thoughts inside

She knew she couldn’t try to hide

The way she felt – just so alive

Got in her car – and began to drive

Drove out of town a long, long way

She drove all night and she drove all day

She knew she had to try and find

Her inner self – her inner child

She knew she had to have some fun

She knew she had to love someone

The way she felt – just so alive

Got in her car – and began to drive

She couldn’t face an endless night

She drove all day and through the night

She couldn’t stop to crash and burn

She couldn’t wait to have a turn

To breathe and laugh and laugh and play

And love each hour of every day

The way she felt – just so alive

Got in her car – and began to drive

She couldn’t help but sit and smile

She kept on going on her drive

She smiled and sang and felt relaxed

She knew she had a second chance

Each word he sang was just the start

Each note he played stayed in her heart

The way she felt – just so alive

Got in her car – and began to drive

Got in her car – and began to drive

Got in her car – and began to drive ………
