The Firehouse Window

There's a whole world outside this window
and the car is parked one block away.
Where do you want to go tonight?
Pick a stoplight.
I'll tell you left or right
or straight ahead 'till morning
When the sun rises to the east
we'll be waiting on the sandy coast
with the radio soft and the AC off
wrapped in blankets, ready to sleep
but we made it this far
so why not a million miles more?
play the license plate game
and keep score
just for the hell of it
All outside this narrow window
the world waits for us
to see the stars in 48 of 50 states
and never wonder "why?"
when a simple "why not?" will do just fine
