Thanks Nash - it's intended to be the same message about three different topics; I thought maybe it wasn't clear. But most of all it's a comment on love relationships.<P>Thanks so much for the feedback.<P>HawkN

Hey thanks guys.<P>Have you ever been on a road and someone started "drifting" into your lane (and you wonder with heart stopping - are they high or drunk?)<P>Have you ever been in a relationship and someone started drifting away - and you want to but can't stop them?<P>Have you ever been with someone toward the end of their life - and they are drifting forever away (or so it seems at the time).<P>Those were the thoughts behind this little song. Glad it pleased you all.<P><BR>Hawk.N
