I never used to be the kind of girl to be soothed by a drive. I mean I remember riding around a lot in Carica's car when we were teenagers, but after my nasty accident in '98, I just kinda got too anxious to drive around. That's changed, for the most part, out here. For one, the chances of being carjacked or killed by a meaniehead are very slim. For another, there's no traffic out here in the country (unless you're in one of the big cities, I don't drive to those for relaxation). Then of course, there's the scenery. It really is lovely out here. Those green fields, those endless blue skies...it's all very soothing.
I suppose if I still lived in New Mexico I would have resorted to drinking copious amounts of booze...or selling Nathan to the gypsies.
You leave footprints on the street,
And there’s too many miles to face,
Without a few more hours sleep,
The storm clouds overhead,
Won’t shed any rain to quench your thirst,
I wanna be the one you reach for first.
When your faith is stretched so thin,
You can see right through your soul,
And you can’t find a nickel to buy a smile ‘cause your pockets all got holes,
You wanna shut the door and,
Hide before the day can get much worse,
I wanna be the one you reach for first."
