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

    My InterpretationIt makes sense to me that the "stolen car" is a metaphor for a woman that the protagonist is having an affair with. He's waiting to get caught so that he can end the lie. The "restlessness" he experienced was his desire for other woman and he hoped this would disappear as his relationship grew deeper, but it never did and now he's left driving that stolen car.
