Default Is "Destiantion" a rip-off from Thunder Road?

What do you think?

Destination Anywhere:
Hey Babe, it's me parked outside your house
I know that he's asleep, so listen to me now
Darlin', I'm tired of living just in your dreams
I'm getting out
You know we both sold our souls
We're just growing old, in this sleepy, dead-end town

Destination Anywhere
Name the place and I'll be there
Pack a bag a we're out of here - let's run

Baby, we both been running uphill for too long
We both settled for something, got nothing
And we both know it's wrong
Go on admit it we lived it, I'm leaving -
Get your boots and come on
I got my coat and my keys, I need you next to me, then I'm gone

Destination Anywhere
Name the place and I'll be there
Pack a bag a we're out of here - let's run
Destination Anywhere
Left of right, I don't care
Maybe we'll just disappear like the sun

When these wheels spin, they can all eat our dust
As far as I'm concerned, this whole town's lost
It's nuts
We won't be here when they put us down
It's our big chance and I'm calling you now
They'll never let us go unless we try
I'm tired of living just to die
We're getting out of here, destination anywhere

Destination Anywhere
Name the place and I'll be there
Pack a bag a we're out of here - let's run
Destination Anywhere
Left of right, I don't care
Maybe we'll just disappear like the sun, come on, come on, come on

Thunder Road:
The screen door slams, Mary's dress sways
Like a vision she dances across the porch. As the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
Hey that's me and I want you only
Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again
Don't run back inside, darling you know just what I'm here for
So you're scared and you're thinking
That maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me
You can hide `neath your covers and study your pain
Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
Waste your summer praying in vain
For a saviour to rise from these streets
Well now I'm no hero, that's understood
All the redemption I can offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood
With a chance to make it good somehow
Hey what else can we do now?
Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair
Well the night's busting open
This two lanes will take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real
To trade in these wings on some wheels
Climb in back, Heaven's waiting on down the tracks

Oh-oh come take my hand
We're riding out tonight to case the promised land
Oh-oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road,
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold, Thunder Road

Well I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk
And my car's out back if you're ready to take that long walk
From your front porch to my front seat
The door's open but the ride it ain't free
And I know you're lonely and there's words that I ain't spoken
But tonight we'll be free, all the promises'll be broken
There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
They scream your name at night in the street
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
you hear their engines roaring on
But when you get to the porch they're gone
On the wind, so Mary climb in
It's a town full of losers and I'm pulling out of here to win.

I'd say yes it is!!!!! And a pretty bad too

yes think it is. it`s really really beautiful. some songs are just slow and relaxing some more jazzy just great to listen to. Very relaxing and beautiful. Davids so talented never cared that much about piano music before but now I'm really glad I got Luna Eclipse. thx for liking my site

Nope, to me they are 2 totally different songs, about totally different things.

I think I read Jon said he was listening to Born to Run when he wrote that song so it is probably an intentional nod I would think. I do think of Thunder Road when I hear it. BTW has anyone ever noticed that Lonesome Day sounds a little like Sad Song Night and conversely BTBMB (especially the new slowed down version with the humming at the end) sounds like The River.

Lonesome Day sounds a lot like Sad Song Night. Not a little.
