alexthomasdavis – A Long Drive lyrics

It came as no surprise
After the long drive
I looked into your eyes
They never were alive

It came as no surprise
When I did arrive
You covered up your eyes
I still saw the lies
And when you see
What you mean to me
There was nothing I could say
Which ever could appease
And if you leave
I'll never grieve
Cos lifes too short today
And I prefer a breeze

    this song uses the chords e and d7. i love it and when i played it it sounds like a surprise. so i incorprated this into the lyrics, very mcCartney. Its about the dreaded long drive to a girlfriend who has 'some news'. great! there is some acceptance but yeah, in the end shes no poet anyway so who cares
