Lyrics

You know I"ve driven all night, But the landscape screams your name. You know I"ve driven through hell, Where your face spreads like a flame. You know the air vents rusted And the light bulbs blown. And you"re playing tycoon on the telephone, While I"m playing for time in the midnight hour alone. I see you"re riding through life On a storm you can"t dismount. You know the number of times That you hurt me I just lost count. I know your smile"s so warm, But you"re causing grief. "Cause you"ve taken my tongue In your flashin" teeth. And you ruined my soul, "Cause your love"s still out of reach. You never say the things that you feel. I need to work out which emotion is real. No point in stayin" when you won"t try. If you don"t want me, I gotta know why. Your love just lingers in a long goodbye. You know I"ve driven all night Just to see your silhouette. You know I"ve driven all night, But I don"t have one regret. I saw the front doors open a projector gleam. They were playing our past on a naked beam. You were playing back scenes Of your triumphs on the screen. You never say the things that you feel. I need to work out which emotion is real. No point in stayin" when you won"t try. If you don"t want me, I gotta know why. Your love just lingers in a long goodbye. You know I"ve driven all night As the highway melts with fire. You know I"m drivin" on ice As the elements conspire. You know I"ve seen the future, But it"s far too soon. You were dancin" alone On our honeymoon. And I was drippin" with fear In the scent of your perfume. You know I"ve driven all night, But my love for you won"t die. You know I"m livin" the hell Of a lover"s long goodbye.
