all across the subways these voices cry the same phrase:
we're leaving in a motor car today
the streetlights in the rearview shoot shadows through the dark blue
just thinking about moving away
i pray: just take me somewhere
and where i go i don't care
the winters in the city bind me so
they bind me so
oh oh

drive, drive me faster
i just threw those early hours
i never want your flowers on my grave
as the last cold rains take these flowers away
oh la la la la la
la la la

it's something about the buildings that leaves me with this sinking feeling
i honestly thought i lost
but point your finger, trace the line back to that time
well, those words were mine
what's coming up behind, a hundred miles of open space
& we're side by side

drive, drive me faster
adjust through those early hours
i never want your flowers on my grave
as the last cold rains take these flowers away

oh drive, drive me faster
adjust through those early hours
i never want your flowers on my grave
as the last cold rains take these flowers away
