One of the best "desire" songs ever



p.s. I did drive all night one time... After midnight in a decrepit car, through some pretty barren Texas landscape, without a map, not knowing exactly where I was going or what hotel or room my lover was in... I found him! :)

The feeling, and the welcome, were exactly like this song. (Except, no, my Texas man didn't, once I showed up, just lie there and kiss me sluggishly like the gay male model in the video!) :)

And I love the "Is that alright?" line... Although I was pumped up while driving, part of the adrenalin was fear...what if he rejected me?

"I Drove All Night"

I had to escape
The city was sticky and cruel
Maybe I should have called you first
But I was dying to get to you
I was dreaming while I drove
The long straight road ahead, uh, huh

Could taste your sweet kisses
Your arms open wide
This fever for you is just burning me up inside

I drove all night to get to you
Is that alright
I drove all night
Crept in your room
Woke you from your sleep
To make love to you
Is that alright
I drove all night

What in this world
Keep us from tearing apart
No matter where I go I hear
The beating of your heart
I think about you
When the night is cold and dark
No one can move me
The way that you do
Nothing erases the feeling between me and you

I drove all night to get to you
Is that alright
I drove all night
Crept in your room
Woke you from your sleep
To make love to you
Is that alright
I drove all night

Could taste your sweet kisses
Your arms open wide
This fever for you is just burning me up inside

I drove all night to get to you
Is that alright
I drove all night
Crept in your room
Woke you from your sleep
To make love to you
I drove all night... to hold you tight
