so i left town at 1:30 in the morning to see you and i drove through the rain and through the snow. the snow disappeared and everything cleared and things then grew dark all around me. and although i was tired, i stayed pretty calm 'cause i knew that soon i would be in your arms. so i left town at 1:30 in the morning to see you and i drove through the snow and through the sleet. and the sleet disappeared and everything cleared and the wind then blew strong all around me. and although i felt crazy, i stayed pretty calm 'cause i knew that soon i would be in your arms. and although i was so tired, i stayed pretty calm 'cause i knew that soon i would be sleeping in your arms.
so i left town at 1:30 in the morning to see you and i drove and i sang all the way. and i could've stayed back there in any other bed but i needed to come and be near you. and although i felt crazy, i stayed pretty calm 'cause i knew that soon i would be in your arms. and although i was tired, i stayed pretty calm 'cause i knew that soon i would be in your arms.

    General CommentI thought this song had a remarkable *lack* of meaning to me... It was a pretty song and I thought I'd missed an important line when listening to it the first time....

    ... but nothing. Maybe I'm more used to other bands who combine lyrical ethereality with actual meaning/story... but this just seemed to go nowhere.

    Shame really, because it's a nice song to listen to. Just think it's unfortunately a bit... without.

    Have I missed something?

    General Commentthis song is the definition of what it means to be in a long distance relationship. She is obviously leaving early in the morning because she has to drive a long distance to see him, but even though its a treacherous drive, its worth it because at the end of it she'll get to be with him
