This song comes from a memory when I was touring in a band where only three of us had drivers’ licenses. the previous night’s show was in Cairns in Queensland, nearly 3000 km from Darwin and we only had 35 hours in which to do the trip.  I remember coming down the escarpment from Katherine towards Darwin so very tired, it was early in the morning and I was trying not to fall asleep.  This song is about the fatigue and the hope that the driving will be over soon

PS I only use Miles because kilometres did not fit in the rhyming scheme
