A Song of an Idea I got in a Car

A song of an idea I got in a car
the driver’s driving licence was three days old
but I didn’t mind at all
a song of an idea I got in a car
the rain was really falling hard outside the car
but I didn’t mind at all
I was sitting on the right side of the back seat
I would have loved to move my hands a little bit
and do you mind, and do you care
that in my mind I’ve already touched your hair

An idea of a song I’ve got in my heart
but the power of the hour’s changing fast
an idea of a song I’ve got in my heart
but the feeling of fear is here at last
if I wouldn’t care you couldn’t listen to this song
if I wouldn’t mind not only something would be gone
