  1. Midnight Ride

From the album Patience & Time

Lyrics

c2007 Sol Knopf & Greg Gantzer

He’s got his foot on you with the pedal to the metal
Layin’ off the clutch so you’re gonna have to settle
With his hands on you like a steering wheel
Drivin’ so fast gonna make you squeal

And you don’t even know that he’s really bound to go

On a midnight ride… to nowhere… he’s goin’ nowhere
Takin’ you on a midnight ride…to nowhere…he’s goin nowhere
Takin’ you on a midnight ride.


Well it’s a road you’ve traveled many times before
You’re just a poor old sucker comin’ back for more
A junkyard Jenny in a passenger seat
And you’re runnin outa gas baby ain’t that sweet…

And you may think you’re bold
But it’s going to get cold

On a midnight ride… to nowhere… he’s goin’ nowhere
Takin’ you on a midnight ride…to nowhere…he’s goin nowhere
Takin’ you on a midnight ride.

Well you heard your Momma’s voice
But you had to make your own choice
Now your feelin’ like fool far from home
On a midnight ride

Now there’s a light up ahead and it’s shinin’ on you
It’s like a ray of reason…what you gonna do?
You get control of this car and pull it off the track
Put your feet on the black top and never look back

And as he’s screamin’ out your name
You know you’ll never go again

On a midnight ride… to nowhere… he’s goin’ nowhere
Takin’ you on a midnight ride…to nowhere…he’s goin nowhere
Takin’ you on a midnight ride.
