'the adventures of a thirty-ish university graduate' or, alternately and perhaps much more aptly: 'as mad as a barking fox'

oh, here comes the flood

i like when words capture me. and when they're set to music, it makes it that much more enchanting:

there's a stranger in a car driving down your street,
acts like he knows who you are
slaps his hand on the empty seat and says
"are you gonna get in, or are you gonna stay out?"
just a stranger in a car
might be the one they told you about

well you never were one for cautiousness
you open the door
he gives you a tender kiss
and you can't even hear them no more
all the voices of choices
now only one road remains
and strangers in a car
two hearts, two souls, tonight: two lanes

you don't know where you're goin'
you don't know what you're doin'
hell it might be the highway to heaven
and it might be the road to ruin
but this is a song
for strangers in a car
baby maybe that's all we really are
strangers in a car (driving down your street)
just strangers in a car (driving down your street)
strangers in a car
