about

It's sad when relationships end for poor reasons (and this is my own fault here). There are two ebow parts; one is on my bass.

lyrics

You know this all came from nowhere, and it left in a flash
And I just feel alive and maybe I feel in love
In my head is all this music mixing with my thoughts
I've got this feeling, this crazy feeling, that I'm not going to sleep tonight

Driving around at night, staying up far, far too late
Trying to get lost, trying to go nowhere
Just sharing my mind, letting it free - it's a beautiful thing
I guess I'll never quite know why I acted this way or that

I guess I fell in love and I couldn't stop thinking
It felt too soon I'd leave you, but we didn't seem to care
I wanted to sit and write a song, run around and make some noise
All my emotions float around in the cauldron of my mind

Driving around and hanging out - it's another late night
Now I'm driving back home - it's always a slow drive
It's dark and the streets are empty; no one's around but the police
I wish the night lasted longer, I wish I could skip responsibility

I didn't want this to end; I would do this forever
I knew I didn't want to say goodbye, I just knew that I would cry
