wake up, were driving
it's best to keep moving
things are going ok
eating fruit on highways
trying to stay healthy
dreaming of the old days
I saw kids running out in the fields
the life of the farmer, it always appeals to me
i wrote on a postcard i may or may not send
i was keeping distracted until i saw horses and thought of you
just put your arm around me
smoke rising in the distance
i wont sit in confusion
its time for rebuilding
hey rory hand me a lemon its good for hangovers and pass around the ginger it brings us together

    General Commentwake up, were driving
    it's best to keep moving
    things are going ok
    eating fruit on highways

    trying to stay healthy
    dreaming of the old days

    I saw kids running out in the fields
    the life of the farmer, it always appeals to me

    i wrote on a postcard i may or may not send
    i was keeping distracted until i saw horses and thought of you

    just put your arm around me
    smoke rising in the distance
    i wont sit in confusion
    its time for rebuilding

    hey rory hand me a lemon
    its good for hangovers and
    pass around the ginger
    it brings us together

    General Commentyeah, it's definitely "I saw kids running out in the field" not "eye sockets" that just makes no sense

    the piano and the layered vocals make this song epic

    My InterpretationFor me I always think of people resettling after an apocalyptic event. All the survivors using the highways to move about and to relocate and then to rebuild their lives.

    Btw, how come the lyrics haven't been fixed yet?
