about

Always wanted to write a song paying homage to my trusty steed, Alex. The first Alex was a bit of a mess, three engines, breakdowns and other minor catastrophes, but we never missed a gig or were late for one. Of course, when you don't have that much faith in "ol' reliable", you do tend to leave the shack earlier than normal. Two hours is plenty of time when you need to drive five or six miles to get to the show. A bit of a cliffhanger ending, people always ask me if the guy drives away alone or not ...

lyrics

Wanna take you out for a spin in my van
Pack a lunch…. we’ll go for a drive if you can
I’d like to drag you where the warm wind blows
I’ll write your name in the sand
I’ll take you out to see, now - in my van

Find a cassette while I drive you around in my van
Just root around and find something loud if you can
Let’s pack up our things and just run away
And hope that they’ll all understand
Is there some place you’d like to go with me in my van

We don’t need much money
We can find our way along
I’ve been waiting forever for you
Holding out so long ...

I drive you home or we just drive away in my van
It’s getting late; let’s make our escape while we can
I’ll drive to where the warm wind blows
You think of beaches and sand
Or do I drive away without you in my van

In my van -

We don’t need much money
We can find our way along
I’ve been waiting forever for you
Holding out so long ...

I drive you home or we just drive away in my van
I drive you home or we just drive away in my van
I drive you home or we just drive away in my van ...

I drive you home or we just drive away in my van
