so turn the music down
im tired of talking really loud
i got just one last thing to say

lets just drive across the country
just drive me to the coast
lets just drive across the country
just drive me to the coast

its just that
im sick this
sick of here
sick of everyone
and everything around

lets just start over now
somewhere else
the coastal city - such a view

and you wont regret a thing
its not like something is keeping you from me
and you wont miss a thing
about this place
about today

so turn the music down
im tired of talking really loud
i got just one last thing to say

lets just drive across the country
just drive me to the coast
lets just drive across the country
just drive me to the coast

lets just drive across the country
just drive me to the coast
lets just drive across the country
just drive me to the coast

lets just drive across the country

lets just drive across the country
just drive me to the coast...

    General CommentI love this song..
    It just sums up all the feelings of being in the same place for too long with all the same people day in day out..
    All that matters is being with that one person in a new place where you can forget about everyone else and just be together..
    It is amazing..

    General Commentthis song makes me want to run away with my boyfriend or something.
    i think of a gold car on a cloudy day with tan leather seats. weird, i know.
    but The Secret Handshake is a wonderful, Luis is great. He has a whole new album, someone should get the lyrics up.

    General CommentI think about gathering up all the things you can pack in ten minutes and hopping in the car with someone and just...driving, with no destination except far from where you are.

    General Commentthe album version is so much different then the demo.

    i think i like the demo more, maybe just cause i'm used to it more.

    but there's a whole 'nother stanza in the album version:

    "we're almost there
    it's twenty hours
    and we've been driving forever
    we're almost to the coast"

    that repeats a few times near the end. =]

    anywho, this is probably my favorite tsh song. so beautiful. i can relate - i'm from the coast and recently moved to the mideast and i hate it. i would love to pack all my stuff and just drive until i hit the ocean.
