Eyes on the road

The night is so pretty; deep, dark, and vast

And Alfredo remembers all the times in the past

That he spent in the backseat on long family drives

Just a kid watching the sky and dreaming of other people’s lives.

Now that he’s the dad, with his own kids asleep in the back

It’s his job to drive longer than he can keep track

The night is still pretty, but he doesn’t want to crash and explode

So he ignores the stars, and keeps his eyes on the road.

(Starring the great Alfredo Martínez de la Pedraja)
