about

Uptempo blues-Americana road song; trying to outdrive a broken heart.

lyrics

Speed
Copyright 2016 Sweet Amnesia Music, ASCAP

Trees blow by like a phantom train
My foot's on the pedal like a wanted man
Far behind me is a dead-end love
This yellow line can't pull hard enough

Cause I'm trying to make up for lost time
Trying to turn back a broken heart
Trying to make up for lost time
But memories move at the speed of light

I know you better than my stick-shift hand
I know your weather and your changing skies
I wore your thunder like a second skin
You linger too long, you pay the price

Trying to make up for lost time
Trying to turn back a broken heart
Trying to make up for lost time
But memories move at the speed of light

Keep on runnin', won't slow down
There's a fool behind this wheel
A mirage she thought was real
until the rain came down

Cities rise and they sink again
Another Atlantis in this black tar ocean
My head is burning and my mouth's a kiln
Speed is my only destination

Trying to make up for lost time
Trying to turn back a broken heart
Trying to make up for lost time
But memories move at the speed of light
