Lyrics

I was just a young boy
When I set out to learn to drive the car
That awkward age when you
Really haven't figured who you are

You were a young girl
So beautiful and clean
We were joined together
And unsullied by our passions and our dreams

And it's oh so much pavement
Oh so much pavement
And it's oh so much pavement's passed me by

When I got my license I thought that I was ready for the road
That mapless freedom
You know the one before you feel the load

We were like children
The first time you let me touch your thigh
All the sudden I was man
You were woman neither one of us knew why

And it's oh so much pavement
Oh so much pavement
And it's oh so much pavement's passed me by

Passed me by like resolutions
Faded in the years
Like the chance of absolution
Damn these salty tears

Didn't take too long 'til my driving
Was as smooth as it could be
I was the pilot
The arbiter of my own destiny

You were the fuel that fed the engine
That propelled my very heart
You were the scenery
The ending of my journey and its start

And it's oh so much pavement
Oh so much pavement
And it's oh so much pavement's passed me by

Now that I am older
I try to let the love inside me steer
