Just put me in the car and drive so far until I’m free again. I am a good driver, I feel the energy inside. This is the night! The moon is shining, it’s a strange feeling. Shadows are my friends and the light hates my face. When the sun comes I am not there, I am sleeping and I am dreaming. This is my power! I am a driver, a nightrider, I am the shadow, and I am the light. I am the star, beside the moon! When the night comes I am alone at the streets….! Darkness thinks I’m pretty and the rain covets my soul. I am the creator!
