lyrics

Start the car release the break
Merge onto the interstate
Drive away, drive away
Drive away, drive away

You are lucky to be alive
‘Cause you’ve been bleeding deep inside
Kids say, “words can never hurt”
But they don’t know ‘cause you’re lucky to be alive

Night sky is glowing orange and red
Gas station lights are shining exit ramp ahead
Windshield wipers starting up
You took the last sip from a coffee cup

Shifting lanes, construction site
Painting lines under a light
Drive away, drive away
Drive away, drive away
