about

I can't remember when and where I've written this song. It just had to be done.
I almost did not include it on the record because something happened to the original drum take.
I only recently found out that this song was really missing. No time to record new drums, that's why I programmed them. Forgive me.

lyrics

The Seasons

I just wanna get away from here
I just wanna go out and find some place
Where the air is clear
I just wanna get out of here
'Cause the noise of the summer
Is still ringin' in my ear

And the cool days of fall
They just went by
With no place to go
And all I have left
Is your voice
On the code-a-phone

And every time I think of you, baby
It just drives me crazy
Ain't that amazing
With just one look
You just took my heart
And threw it away

And when winter comes
You won't find a single road
That I've not been on
A hundred times or more
I took the turn 'round your house
And I still keep going

And sometimes
It's like you haunt me
In the black of night
I could swear
That I've seen your shadow
By the dashboard light

And every time I think of you, baby
It just drives me crazy
'Cause the seasons you gave me
They turn from fall
To the deep heart of winter
And back again, with no hope for spring

What a waste of gas
It'll last another hour
If I don't go to fast
How I want you near
On the outskirts of town
Where the air is clear

But the only things
That I cling to
Is this song and the wheel
If I could
Only tell you
The way that I feel

And every time I think of you, baby
It just drives me crazy
'Cause the kiss that I've tasted
Was just a small relieve
For the pain
That conquered me then
