I'm chasing visions, I slide sideways to avoid the blows
White fireworks explode, and ammonia stings my nose
The girl staring back from the airbag says,
"It's stolen all my confidence, and raped the joy from my guilty grin..."
The heat lingers, and I can put my finger on it
The words ring true:
"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."
The car's still cold
I hope you told all your friends I drove myself out of town
How did it go down?
While you're fighting spectres
I can't expect her to stay in reach
I've changed positions, just for the record
My will is the wrecker, to say the least...
Tipped off by hearsay, mix-match words, and paraphrase
I blew that look right off your face
It's not about a feeling; it's about a mindset
It's about a warm, bright night, getting highs the carefree souls all get
And you were right when you said that I'm not ready for this
I'm not ready, but you are
And you were wrong when you said that we can't be loved by the same ones that we love
I'll write you off
(A swerve in the learning curve)
