I met a little girl and I settled down
In a little house out on the edge of town
We got married, and swore we'd never part
Then little by little we drifted from each other's heart

At first I thought it was just restlessness
That would fade as time went by and our love grew deep
In the end it was something more I guess
That tore us apart and made us weep

And I'm driving a stolen car
Down on Eldridge Avenue
Each night I wait to get caught
But I never do

She asked if I remembered the letters I wrote
When our love was young and bold
She said last night she read those letters
And they made her feel one hundred years old

And I'm driving a stolen car
On a pitch black night
And I'm telling myself I'm gonna be alright
But I ride by night and I travel in fear
That in this darkness I will disappear

    General Commentwhat they thought was true love changed for the worse as they grew apart in time
    he is not blaming her or himself, but instead an outside force that tore them apart
    he didn't actually steal a car...it is a metaphor..he doesn't feel connected to her anymore and is doing something he knows is wrong and hopes someone will just put an end to it, implying he can't stop it himself

    his wife is acknowledging that their love is not what it once was and seems like ages since it felt strong

    he continues on...and he hopes he will be ok but he is ashamed of what he is doing and is afraid that he will lose sight of the person that he once was
