The lyrics include the words; “I was dreaming while I drove, the long straight road ahead” and “I think about you when the night is dark and cold”, “Is that all right, I drove all night?”  Driving a long way at night in the dark like the driver in the song you would want your Tarmac Bristol road to have been laid by a company such as https://www.thornburysurfacing.co.uk/ .
