The Drive

I love the night air,
wind blows through my hair,
and everything feels alright.
It's you and me,
with nowhere to be. 
There's just no end in sight.
Only know where we've been,
not going again.
My strength I often fake. 
Only one way to know,
only time will show
the trip that we must take.
So many chances,
a thousand glances 
at what our life could bring.
There's so much behind us.
Too much has blinded us,
but hope is a powerful thing.
Regrets will get the best of you,
so only look ahead of you.
I know the past looks bleak.
Not a cloud in the sky,
while the moon floats by.
I slowly drift off to sleep.
So we drive down the path.
How long will it last-
this new life that I see?
When it all goes wrong,
will we truly belong?
What's out there for you and me?
Not one familiar face,
what is this place?
Do you know where we are?
It was just too soon,
now we look like fools.
We must've gone too far.
With you by my side,
these worlds still collide.
Protect me if you can.
It's never enough,
we've run out of luck.
Tell me you have a plan.
How could we have known,
until we were shown?
Is the world that cruel and cold?
Life is what you make it,
leave it or take it.
That's what I once was told.
We took a wrong turn,
there's so much to learn.
You don't see it like I do-
the beauty the world holds,
when each day unfolds,
so I look out for you.
What a life to live.
The world has so much to give.
What does it all mean?
Not a cloud in the sky,
while the moon floats by.
It was all just a dream.
