stand at the show all night
somewhere in the back, just watching the band
trying to pretend nothings wrong
and clap for the songs

drive all night for no reason
just drive till the tape's done
leave everything to the long, long road
to take you home

talk on the phone all night
tell the whole story to an answering machine
put everything on a song
just put everything on some song on the radio

at least this song wont cheat
at least this song wont leave

    General CommentUnlike most of Owen's songs, this one seems to have such a greater, deeper meaning and really gets me everytime. "drive all night for no reason, just drive till the tape's done... at least this song wont cheat, at least this song wont leave" really got me deep, because I myself have driven just to get away from something I know you can't physically get away from. So sad that this song hasn't been commented on :-(.

    General CommentI love how the melody emerges after he sings "on some song on the radio".

    It's like the song is emerging into the song from the radio, almost as if it were half-ghost.
