Needtobreathe– Drive All Night


Recommended Posts

On our vacation I often start driving with this song loud. The band started as a Christian band so how I read this song is influenced by that frame. Some day I will wear it out, but, for now, I continue to find meaning and encouragement here. For now I will comment on only one line:

 

Try and prove the poets wrong

 

Can't help but think of Ecclesiastes

 

 

Needtobreathe– Drive All Night Lyrics

 

I ain't lookin for a free ride home

Back to the middle

I need a new locale

I need a girl who calls me baby

I need to know if she can save me

 

I need somewhere I can drive all night

Out into the darkness

Follow the headlights down

I gotta know if they can take me

I gotta know if they can save me

 

Focus in on every word

Change my path

Maybe I could leave a mark

Try and prove the poets wrong

There must be time

Maybe we could be the song

To march us on

 

I ain't lookin for a free ride home

Back to the middle

I need a new locale

I need a girl that calls me baby

I need to know if she can save me

 

I need somewhere I can drive all night

Out into the darkness

Follow the headlights down

I need to know where they can take me

I gotta know if they can save me

Beg the book to turn the page

Cause I get stuck where the villains get away

Somewhere in this wretched tale there must be a line

Where the victim gets his way

Just one time

I'll get mine

 

I ain't lookin for a free ride home

Back to the middle

I need a new locale

I need a girl that calls me baby

I gotta know if she can save me

 

I need somewhere I can drive all night

Out into the darkness

Follow the headlights down

I need to know where they can take me

I gotta know if they can save me

 

Drive all night

Hold on tight

Close your eyes

Say goodbye

Nice song, Dutch. I listened to the clip on youtube.

 

I have a habit of playing Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire everytime we drive off from a stop on a journey. This tends to deter the family from requesting toilet stops!
