Get Into Your Car And Drive

about

This song I wrote for the #4Syria project, last Spring. I now turned it into a proper Ro Halfhide production.
The song is about the dramatic refugee problem we're facing in Europe. No borders!

lyrics

chorus:
I'm alive
I wanna take your car and drive
maybe I feel bad
remember the things so strong and sad
you know how I forget the past
to get in your car and drive

I'm content
you are my only friend
maybe I've been sad
give me the feeling I have had
I want the song of love too bad
to get this far alive

verse:
you know nothing about my situation clearly you don't

think of all the times I moved from one place to one beyond

it started in Syria then on to Jordan and to Egypt
from Egypt to Sudan is dangerous but it's quite a trip
I went on foot, by car, on horseback but never a train
and the boat leaving from Lybia I'll never take again


bridge:
I saw you staring to the wall
in front of me
I know it's hard to look at me, you see
but the things inside of me are trying to be free
I know it's hard to look at me, you see
but the things inside of me are trying to be me

<chorus>:

hmmm hmmm

verse:
you know nothing about my situation clearly you don't
not the hole in my heart nor my freedom from want
please be patient when you wanna be helping me
there's things that I've seen that transcend the obscene
I will never be part of your scenery
I will never be part of your scenery

<bridge>:

you know nothing about my situation clearly you don't
