you’ll be gone…

where’d ya go…

out…

out for a drive…

yeah…just out for a drive…

sure like drivin’…go out all the time…just drivin’ ’round…use up a lot of gas…always on E when I get in the car…

uh huh…

like bein’ by yourself…like your own company…I get the feelin’ you don’t want me ’round…why you with me anyway…just gonna go on drives all the time…

right…

right what…

just goin’ on rides all the time…eases me…calms me down…

there was a time I used to calm you down…still can…just like ridin’ a bike…

yeah…’spose…

why don’t you take me out for a ride…go out in the country…windows rolled down…go down some old gravel top road…maybe down by the lake in the evenin’ time…bunch of stars out…I won’t say a word…just silence…let you stay calm if you want…we could make it a ritual…somethin’ we do once or twice a week…

ritual huh…

just a thought…just a thought…

see…

I like rides…better than sittin’ here at home…just get out for a couple of hours…that’s all…

right…

where do you go on your rides honey…tell me…where do you go…I don’t ask too many questions…just curious…where do you go…

drive…just drive…go out to the edge of the county…turn back ’round…same course every night…been doin’ since high school…all there is to do in this town…just drive…

one of these days you’re gonna keep goin’…you will…I know you…just gonna keep goin’ till you can’t go no more…won’t even tell me…just one night you won’t come home…and that’ll be that…no more waitin’ up for you…you’ll be gone…you’ll be gone…
