I still recall certain road signs
Remember clear as day making beelines
City to city as on time
As a pair of vagabonds could be
A one track mind thinking about destiny
If it wasn't clear, well it was gonna be

With so much color (n.) on the inside
Made it hard to stay between thin lines
Station to station
And disguised like a hometown celebrity
But you were making plans
And you were realistic
Still you chose to bet on me

So if we take this chance
We might compose a story
Don't call this happenstance
You know what this has become
and what it's supposed to be
Fact, fiction and fantasy

I found it strange that the device
The sudden urge, the charm, and the entice
That it would no longer suffice
And a change was springing up in me
If we are trying hard to be realistic
Slide on over closer next to me

So glad we took that chance
We've written quite the story
Not close to happenstance
You know what this has become and what it's gonna be
Look at how far we've come
Flip through these countless pages
I'm down if you're the one
And this is as real as real could ever be
For you and me
Indeed

I am the car
There is a road
That leads to your door
You are the sidewalk
And a long walk home

When you want me to I'll be
Everything
You'll ever need
And we'll move
At the quickest speed

I am the car
There is a road
That leads to your door
You are the sidewalk
I am the car
And there is a road
That you and I know
Where love is a long walk
And a long walk home

    General CommentI'm pretty sure "me lines" should be "neat lines" and "jagged bonds" should be "vagabonds" (i.e. drifters). The fourteenth line sounds right to me, though.

    General CommentI need help with the first, second and fourteenth lines. They are probably wrong, but I wanted to get the song up here.
