Tonight, this three hour drive
Might as well be to Alaska
(go find her car, and people say this)
Tonight, this three hour drive

Hello, talkin' on the telephone
isn't all it's cracked up to be
the less crackle and
your voice will be harmony

They say it's all but impossible
They say it's all but impossible
And too much time has gone
They say it's all but impossible
They say it's all but impossible
And too much time has gone
Well it goes, oh, and goes

(go find her car, and people say this)
Say so, it's not impossible
to get closer with
So say so, and now I'm at your door
And I knock and I went in
My god you look heavenly

And time is all I've weathered and it's gone
And time is all I've weathered and it's gone(she's golden)
And time is all I've weathered and it's gone(she's golden)
And time is all I've weatehred and it's gone
(my god you look heavenly)

    General CommentThese lyrics are extremely wrong.

    It's not "go find your car...." it's "Go faster car, 3 feet per second", "The crackle and your voice move in harmony","Where'd it go? No one knows..", "It's not impossible to get closer with miles between"(It's a song about long distance relationships after all) "In flip flops we take off, and she is golden"

    General CommentThe lyrics here are pretty different to what appears in the sleeve notes, although maybe they changed them from the written version, I can't make out what he's singing half the time. Here's what's in the sleeve:

    Tonight, this three hour drive might as well be to Alaska.
    Tonight, this three hour drive seems to move toward Antarctica.
    Go faster car.
    These feet per second
    These mile markers can't speak to me.

    Hello, talk on the telephone isn't all it's cracked up to be
    But that crackle and your voice move in harmony
    But they say that it is all but impossible
    But too much time has gone.
    Where did it go?
    No one knows but me.
    We would say so.
    It's not impossible to get closer with miles between, so say so

    And now I'm at your door
    And I knock
    And I'm waiting.
    My God, you look heavenly
    And time is so like weather when it's gone
    And time is sewn like weather and it's gone.

    In flip flops we take off
    And she is golden
    Though I know I must go again soon.
    My God, you look heavenly.

    In answer to emoBettyrocket, this song is from the split EP "From the 27th State". The first three tracks on the EP are by Further Seems Forever, and the tracks 4-6 (this one being track 5) are by Recess Theory.

    Since no one has done so so far, I'll offer my (possibly incorrect) interpretation: it's about a long distance relationship, the singer is driving to visit his girlfriend.
