“Drive You Home” tells the true story of Thomas Hanewinkel, long-time friend and webmaster of German fan site, courting his then-coworker, now-wife, Judith.

It started with a simple carpooling arrangement, which lead to attending a concert together. Next thing you know, wedding bells!

I wrote and recorded the song as a wedding present to be played at the reception, which I would’ve attended if not for its inconvenient location on the other side of the planet.

I intended to release it as a single, but the graphic designer disappeared on me! Her first draft appears here.


Motivation fades
The clock is ready to call it a day
When a charming guest
Is escorted straight to my desk
With a modest request
So begins the chase
You live on the way back to my place
Could I spare a ride?
I'm overly quick to oblige

Yes I'll drive you home
Your home
Wherever you'd like to go
Yes I'll drive you home
Your home
I'm wanting to get to know you better

A well-oiled machine
We've coasted into a pleasant routine
Talking all the way
We always have something to say
The best part of my day
Making hasty plans
To go hear one of our favorite bands
Saved our ticket stubs
It's obvious we are in love

Yes I'll drive you home
My home
Wherever you'd like to go
Yes I'll drive you home
My home
I'm wanting to spend the night together

You kick up your feet
Reclining into the passenger seat
As you start to snore
I quietly lock both the doors
To keep you safely on board
Finally set a date
A ceremony to commemorate
The horizon's glare
The thrill of the wind in our hair

Yes I'll drive you home
Our home
Wherever you'd like to go
Yes I'll drive you home
Our home
I'm ready to spend our lives together.
