Music Monday — Eve 6 “Open Road Song”

19 Sep

An oldie from my high school days.  I loved, loved, loved Eve 6 songs.  And every time I hear one on the radio (satellite radio is awesome!) or my big iTunes shuffle, I have to sing along.  It’s a necessity.  This song reminds me of summer every time I hear it.  I want to jump in my “pile” and head off with no direction or purpose.  I want to feel the wind in my hair.  I want to sing along at the top of my lungs.  Summer’s ending.  I have to get in a few more open window drives before the cold becomes too much.

And I really think that my pile starts to shake at 80!

Lyrics (my favorite lines in bold):

Tonight, I feel ambitious and so does my foot
As it sicks on the pedal, I press it to the floor
I don’t need a girl, don’t need a friend ’cause
My friend ‘Lonesome’s’ unconditional, we’re flying forever bored

For a moment I love everything that I see and think and feel
I love my broken side view mirror
‘Cause it’s so perfect, I’m so perfect, you’re so perfect, you’re not here
I hear the change in gears

My pile shakes as I hit 80 on the open road
This is an open road song

The night is beckoning
Although I have nowhere to go but home, feels good to be alone
With every turn comes a new frame of mind
If I could frame my mind, where would it hang?

My pile shakes as I hit 80 on the open road
My pile shakes as I hit 80 on the open road
My pile shakes as I hit 80 on the open road
This is an open road song

I crack a window and feel the cool air cleanse my every pore
As I pour my poor heart out to a radio song
That’s patient and willing to listen
My volume drowns it out

Ya, but that’s okay ’cause I sound better than him anyway, any day
Ya, my voice is sweet as salt
I search for comfort and I find it where I found it many times before
Times before it could be forgotten, yeah

My pile shakes as I hit 80 on the open road
My pile shakes as I hit 80 on the open road
My pile shakes as I hit 80 on the open road
This is an open road song

An acoustic bonus for you:
