Empty Lane

from by Dan Florio



I pull onto the parkway for a longer drive
To spend more time behind the wheel
Thinking to myself
Sitting here with no one else

Listening to mellow tunes from older days
Harmonizing choruses
With nobody around
And I’m singing the whole drive down

Watching the daylight fade
And I’m on my way home

Motor humming steadily beneath it all
Scattered floods of headlights
Floating down the other side
City markings passing by

Sky turns a darker shade
And I’m on my way home

Rolling past the quiet towns
Car packed to the brim
And only a few more miles left to go
I’m closing in
Sending myself back to start again

Roadside white lines sway
By the empty lane
Reaching the end of the day
And I’m on my way home
