I met a little girl and I settled down
In a pretty little house in a pretty little town
We got married, and promised to never part
Then little by little we drifted from each other's heart

I'm driving a stolen car on a pitch black night
and I'm doing my best to make it through
well I'm just sitting down here at the stanton light
I wanna get caught, but I never do

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

And I'm driving a stolen car
Waiting on that little red light
I keep telling myself everything's gonna be alright
But I ride by night and I travel in fear
and in this darkness I might just disappear

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

There's a river that runs by that little town
down into the sea
It was there in the shade I laid my body down
as she flowed on so effortlessly

Now there's a party tonight out off the county line, there be dancing down at seven trees
From these banks I can see those party lights shine, maybe she's there, maybe she's looking for me

Last night I dreamed I made the call
I swore to return to stay forever more
once again we stood on the wedding steps at victory hall and walked arm and arm through the chapel door

I can remember how good I felt inside when the preacher said "Son, you may kiss the bride"
But as I leaned over to touch her pretty lips I felt it all slip away through my fingertips

And I'm driving a stolen car through a pitch black night
I keep telling myself everything is gonna be alright
But I ride by night and I travel in fear no matter what I do, or where I drive
Nobody ever sees me when I ride by

    General CommentLiving a lie, not being true to himself. A man who lacks faith in himself. His soul is dead to the world.
