The Distance

Lyrics

Reluctantly crouched at the starting line
Engines pumping and thumping in time
The green light flashes, the flags go up
Churning and burning, they yearn for the cup

This song! One night late at night it was probably around 2 in the morning and this song came on and I was driving from Indianapolis to Toledo and there was no one on the roads & i was going the distance..in such a race.. I wanted to see how fast this car could go. I was going for speed, I touched just a little over 120 miles an hour. I'm certain there are so many more people out there who have gone faster.
