As Long As I Don’t Need To Go Home

It’s night
and I drive on the highway
The road before me is endless
And behind me it all seems to dissolve in the dark

And I drive faster
as I try to silence my thoughts
by the noise of the engine
of my 23 years old car

I wonder,
did you once drive too
on this highway
And for a moment
I can see the road and my country
through your eyes
I smile

And all is fine
If I just keep driving
I could drive all night long
And dream in the comfort
of the heating in my car
And my eyes that follow
the white stripes on the road
As long as I don’t need to go home

The house will be cold
And dark and alone
Just a house made out of stone
Since you are not there
And with you I have my real home
