They say it's all about the ride-Hindsight, I see how mad-dash-crazy you were for me to come round and see the light. And you were fine hanging out with me playing pool, drinking beer on Fridays, it was all you had-it was I who needed convincing. But when my sorry-excuse-for-a-car needed fixing, when all I had was you, there you were waiting, biding time, just waiting until I was ready. I'm glad
