You close the door and start the motor
I roll the window down
I raise my hand and wave goodbye
To neighborhood queens and clowns and

Children in the front yards
They hide and seek and laugh
I can almost hear you thinking
How could these days go by so fast

And the rear view could picture
What we leave behind
Drive darling, drive darling,
Drive darling, drive darling, drive

A silent conversation
No words cause there's no need
We let the tapes mix up the years
And press repeat and press repeat

The trunk is filled with records
And books and tears and clothes
I'm smiling on the surface
I'm scared as hell below

And the rear view could picture
What we leave behind
Drive darling, drive darling,
Drive darling, drive darling, drive

Good morning freedom
Good night lullabies
Drive darling, drive darling,
Drive darling, drive darling, drive

And when we arrive
The hardest of goodbys
You will dry my eyes
Somehow you're always by my side
The one who holds my kite
And watches over all my flights

Drive darling, drive darling,
Drive darling, drive darling, drive

Good morning freedom
Good night lullabies
Drive darling, drive darling,
Drive darling, drive darling, drive

Drive darling, drive darling,
Drive darling, drive darling, drive

There's a provocative music video of this song on their website. 
right now they're live on santa monica based KCRW playing the "morning becomes eclectic"-HD showcase. and tonight: live @ the troubadour. lucky girls.
in case of interest: they're touring the United States (and Montreal, CAN) throughout march '13. (the new york date is sold out already).
I had the great pleasure of seeing these ladies live and unplugged at Cully Jazz a few years back...and nice to hear they're getting some air time on your show...great job guys{#Music}
Great - thank you for playing some German bands!

These folks are great singer & songwriters - and the voice remains crystal clear even live!

The complete album is great - one of theses ones you can put in an let them play completely without the feeling or need to skip a song ;)
Boy is a good choice to play on RP  {#Guitarist}
Awful singing , I hate the trend for extending words to fit the t tune. WRITE WORDS TO FIT THE MUSIC, it's not opera.
@alexn: sure, I know the singer is from switzerland.

stingray...the album versions are pretty "clean". too clean also for my taste. you should give em a try LIVE and acoustic and maybe other songs of them. I feel like they're centuries away from being boring. I find her voice pretty irresistible...

Obviously you do not know WDR's "1-LIVE"!

Boring anyway - German or not!

This is extremely foot-tappy (which is both a real word, and a good thing).

Thanks a bunch. I love those girls's record :o) They're pretty good for a german band...

Now it just needs to get played ;o)

I really thought, if a song would make it on here, first it would be their "This is the beginning"-track. You should really check it out. I -personally - like it even more than this track. Though...this one is a good road trip song...

The record is pretty "fresh": release date was September 2nd 2011.

Thank you Nadine for suggesting this great band! But it's not completely a German band, the singer is from Switzerland as far as I know.

Thank you Bill for playing this, it really fits perfectly!

Thumbs up!
