GS (March 1960 / Essex England)

The Road The Ride And You (Faith In Machines)

The Earth’s curve is revealed to me
As asphalt disappears
Beneath my boots and wheels I see
The rushing of the years
The light returning from these bars
In nickel hardened rays
Grows ever softer heading west
At end of shining day
And I will be with you tonight
In thought if not in deed
And I will carry you tonight
Behind me as we speed
Across dark plains in thundered haste
Through canyons cut by river’s race
Where dust is all that’s left to taste
And faith is all we need

Velocity of falling stars
Tears torn from streaming eyes
The drivers of these shadow cars
Can never feel the prize
That I will feel with you tonight
For I will carry you tonight
So all my life is here tonight
As you now realise

These towered heaps of shattered rock
On either side recede
And boiling clouds our progress mock
As if rain might impede us as
We ride dark plains in thundered haste
Through canyons cut by river’s race
Where dust is all that’s left to taste
And hope is all we need

And somewhere
Some distance behind us
It’s all
Just
Gone
