lyrics

she had to get back where she started
and believe that a place did exist
far from the roar of the engine
deep in the womb of a kiss

this wasn't a time for explaining
there was no common ground to be shared
just a long dark jungle of conflict
she no longer needed to bear

coaxing and luring it in
the sweet knowingness of the wind

so she drove through the day down a narrow road
making a seamless escape
eyes scanning the scenery
pondering the future she faced

nobody offered this refuge
she dreamt it a gift to herself
a seed of self-preservation
now blossomed and scattered its wealth

coaxing and luring it in
the sweet knowingness of the wind

and she's off running
