Story

We had a song half written, taking up shop in a box along with several other half-written songs... It was located in our "songs we'll get back to" box. So, we were watching the news one morning and they were talking about the rise in gas prices... they were reporting on "One Tank Trips". Yes, trips you can take only using one tank of gas. It reminded us of one of the songs from the box... so, we quickly turned the tv off, pulled the song and finished it in about 20 minutes... well... 2 months and 20 minutes. _________________________

Lyrics

ONE TANK Looking through my old photographs Pictures of memories past I’m moving one tank far from you Simple minds could see we were through I let you control my whole hemisphere Crazy me, silly me, what did I hear I need you, I want you, and I love you too Tell me baby, what would you do? Moving one tank far from you Moving one tank far away from you Friend of a friend said you were looking for me Blows my mind, how you can’t see Your gentle lies, nothing was true And up til now, I believed in you Moving one tank far from you Moving one tank far away from you Bridge: Street signs and cars pass me by As I leave it all behind And every spin of the tire just takes me Takes me farther down the line I tossed out my old photographs I see them flutter through he air There’s no more sadness here A smile is all I long to bare Moving one tank far from you Moving one tank far away from you
