The Drive to Phoenix

from ApriltoApril by limesix



Every relationship has moments of dispair and grace - this song is kind of about one that leads to the other.


"This is where we get off," you said.
"I don't want to drive all night."
And I didn't have to look at the map to see you were wrong.

But maybe a night in Phoenix will tell us what we need.
It couldn't be worse than today.

It was quiet enough to hear the wind as it blew slowly through your hair.
We put the top down in Dallas, when things were looking brighter.

I pulled into an empty spot, under the bright halogen lights.
And turned to you with no idea of what I should say.

But then you took my breath away,
the way you always do.
And the stifling heat between us lit the way.

That one night in Phoenix.
