On A Ride Home

"So after a lazy coffee break by the bay, we decided to head back to our turf. I just realized how much it sucks when both of us didn’t own a car, because instead of spending time with him, I get stressed out by the traffic.” -C


He went in first, then took my hand
And helped me get a seat
He locked the door, my hand he clasped
A gentlemanly manner, a chivalrous deed

I leaned on his shoulder, he smiled at me
Then his head, he tilted on mine
His sighs of euphoria, I’ve felt and heard
Oh how Time passed as we traveled by

A view of the city on my window
His sweet, serene demeanor
On the rear view mirror
I see

On the right side mirror
I could see myself smiling
At the sight of me resting on him,
And him resting on me

The traffic is awful
As I looked on the windshield
He’s irritated
Though this he silently said

But I guess it could help
To buy us time
And spend a moment together
To cuddle, and snuggle, and rest

The kind driver dropped us off
By the corner of a street
Where a jeepney would take us
To a place not far

I would’ve drove for him
As he would for me
But I guess that’s what happens
When neither of drives or owns a car

Very nice - it's good to leave the driving, but not the happiness, to someone else!

You don't have to own a car to enjoy romance in one...

I remember the song Passenger Seat. It was the first song I learned to play in guitar.
Good for you fella. Romance and all, eh.

Nate said...

@Ronron: uhm, it depends..

@Deebee: uu nga, i was thinking the same song.. i'm actually a stephen speaks fan.. when i was still in college, lagi pinapakanta sa akin ng classmates ko yun.. :)
