Trying to stray from the darkness,
Trying to locate the light--
I think of the freeway I'll head out on
After another lonely night.
I've had about all I can take,
And the road leads to nowhere;
The darkness shows the neon brights,
But it's your name spelled there.
What if I were to close my eyes,
Stop and let someone else drive?
Well, it's just a thought,
And tomorrow I'll find I-5.
I always hope you'll come back to me;
But that's just a thought, too,
One that has no basis in reality.
Tomorrow the freeway
Will take me to some unfamiliar place;
But nothing will change,
The scenery just reflects your face.
It's the road to nowhere,
It's worn and threadbare;
it's the freeway without you...
I've broken down
And set the flares;
You just keep driving...
But what do I care?
