into this night i wander

There's always time on my mind...

Into this night I wander
Highway beneath me, behind me, before me
Disappearing into the horizon
Ghosts pump through the engine
Driving me further faster farther from home
The open road and the darkness welcome me
Like so many nights before and so many streets to come
The two mistresses who've never failed to let me down
Looking toward a distant land for a cure that I'll never find
"The grass is always greener," they say
The path I circle was worn bare long ago
Still I drive and drive and drive
Somethings change, still others stay the same

Waiting for the past in my rearview
to fade.

Looking for some place I can
call home.
