lyrics

I’m driving down highway 55
My straw’s sucking dry in a cup of ice
I wish the world could always be so nice
Every guy needs some sun and space
Junk food and a slower pace
To get away from the carbon paper days
Days… days

Ahhh

Gonna see our friends we sure used to be close
Now miles of farm keep us apart
It was hard
We had to make new starts
But we got Giants in the tape deck
And the sky is chalky white
I can’t think of nothing better than seeing me old friends tonight
Tonight… tonight

CHORUS

That star burnt out when the Romans fell
When Caesar was squelched by the infidel
You can read that in the blue blanket sky
On this hooded sweatshirt night
And I think to myself it is amazing
That our collections of atomic particles
Found their way through time and space
To this chilly night and this same place

CHORUS

I’m driving down highway 55
My straw’s sucking dry in a cup of ice
I wish the world could always be so nice
