       I wrote this the day after I returned from a trip to Oregon. And I seriously did count 407 trucks on the other side of the highway from Eugene to Woodburn. Not just pick ups. Semis. Everything.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    Here I am again
    In the backseat
    On the highway.
    I close my eyes
    Against the window
    And let my dreams fly away.

    Carry me across the border.
    Take me to the place where I belong.
    Someday I will learn
    To transport myself.
    But for now the road is
    Much too strong.

    I counted 407 trucks
    From Eugene to Woodburn
    Just on the other side.
    I don’t really like them,
    But it passed some time.

    And when David Gray
    Was in the CD player
    And my notebook was laid open
    I wrote about how
    It rained in Roseburg.
    It wasn’t as sunny
    As we’d been hoping.

    Chorus x2

    The cars go by,
    The sun goes down.
    We go through
    Unpopulated towns.
    I fall asleep
    In the backseat.

    Repeat verse one.

      Thats such a groovy song... Why would you count trucks on the other side of the highway though? You must've been pretty bored out of your mind. lol. Good song.

      My brother and I used to spot license plates from varying states/ provinces and make up phrases with the letters in them, or we'd count cars of a certain color. It did make the time go faster. This conveys such a sense of melancholy and disappointment, and I like that. I like sad music, sad books, and sad films (It doesn't help my depression, but happy stuff makes me feel worse). I could hear this sung accompanied by an acoustic guitar, so that's good: I can rarely hear lyrics in my head when I read them (unless it's a song I've heard).
