I can see your eyes from here
And I can't see anything in between
Everything I thought I ought to know about you
Has vanished
like the snow When the sun comes out
There's nothing but green lights from here
Nothing but open roads
You and I, are gonna drive ourselves out of this town
In a 1989 black Mercedes Benz

I can hear your voice from here girl
And I can't hear any other sound
No need to spend any more time apart
That's it, I'm not being left out any more
I gotta hold on what's going on
I've got my foot in the door
So to speak
There's nothing but green lights from here
There's nothing but green lights from here

    General Commenti think its about taking the first step, biting the bullet so to speak and realising that the hard part is now behind you.

    the kinda feelin after a really good first date.
