Right before the street lights come on

This is my favorite time

The sun is almost gone and the sky looks like you can take a spoonful of it into your mouth and let it melt down your throat

Pairs of red in front

And no lights behind to blind you as you look back

Like a reminder to keep looking forward to the future and your destination

Foot to the floor on the accelerator

Don’t slow me down

Don’t tell me what to do

Faster faster faster

Into the darkness as the lights turn on behind me

Too much light

Racing them like they will consume me if I don’t speed up

Don’t let them get you
