The explosions that the engine makes increase at an alarming rate
Your foot is on the floor
And I've always been a fraidy-cat, so I say, "My dear, maybe ease it back."
But you give it a little more
And I watch the needle round the gauge while you crank the mix that summer made
Saying, "It's never been like this before."

And the hope of an uninterrupted life is still alive inside us tonight
And the love of two continuous lines stretching from this to the other side
We're making excellent time

The concrete cracks look like the rivers that we transversed in the car together on that all too perfect fall
And the sun streak spots look like the dots on that weather map that my mother bought in hopes that we would write or call
And the freeway signs all green and white will lead us all back home tonight through that thick suburban sprawl

And the hope of an uninterrupted life is still alive inside us tonight
And the love of two continuous lines stretching from this to the other side
We're all gonna make it out fine

And if I'm gonna take the wheel, well, then we'll need to make a stop
Get some old money tapes for the stereo and some bally shag or top*
I can make it to Durango, but I heard that there'll be snow
Oh yeah, your father called and told us just before we lost signal
And your surfboard doesn't do us much good this far from the ocean
But you brought it anyway in case the San Juan isn't frozen
And as the flakes begin to fall, it feels like every time before
The only difference is before, our eyes weren't quite this sore

And the hope of an uninterrupted life is still alive inside us tonight
And the love of two continuous lines stretching from this to the other side
And the hope of an uninterrupted life is still alive inside us tonight
And the love of two continuous lines stretching from this to the other side
We're making excellent time
