about

I wrote this while driving on a isolated back road on December 31, 11:45 P.M., 2014.

lyrics

On a long and dark road
Empty stretch of night
Shadowed trees fall from either side
And there's candles in those window
Pretty photos hang inside
And I'm minutes away on this New Year's ride
Curve ahead to the future
Depart from the past
Stones and tar and asphalt so vast
And I'm driving on the edge of reason
In a winter so unkind
But there's truth ahead on this New Year's Ride
So this is the sound of the year turning
Vanishing behind the wheel,
With a cold wind burning
I see one headlight a million miles away
From city to city
Dream to dream
Promises are made but unseen
Hear the echoes of desperation
Past unmarked signs
I can hear them on this New Year's Ride
I feel my heartbeat racing
I hear my tires chasing
This old desire that never leaves
Now I feel the need for a reckoning
Closer down the line
Where the bones meet the road on this New Year's Ride
So this is the sound of the year turning
Vanishing behind the wheel,
With a cold wind burning
I see one headlight a million miles away
