There is a song sadder
than a two-lane highway,
but you don’t know where
this might lead you;
you listen to the words
anyway, to the hum of tires,
to see faces of those you loved
on the soft shoulders of road

That’s them between the markers,
between stations of the radio,
between splitting seconds of static,
between those road signs one day
you swear you will step behind
and disappear

timmy,

This is so beautiful, painful and mystical.

Captures the feeling of "the Road" on many drives I've taken.

One can not drive a car and not know the feelings.

Felt I was invisible in the back seat of the car with you.

What a reversal of perception in the the second stanza.

Thanks for this.

best,

IMR
