I think I saw you driving down the wrong way down the highway last night
I think I saw your eyes as you burned out of sight
As pale as the moon, as wild, as bright
Blackberry body, Chevy Nova 1979

Run it out
Drop it down
Rev it up
The speed of sound

I blaze on, my mind now in overdrive
Where is she coming from, is there anybody left alive
I can’t shake that frame, how the sweat in the dash light shines
Do I turn and I follow or better just to leave her behind

Run it out
Drop it down
Rev it up
The speed of sound

Goddamn gasoline love
It burns me out
Drag like a strike-anywhere
Along the ground

Shit, I think I hear sirens, there’s got to be more than one
So I cut down the back roads that snake along route 31
My smile it widens, my heart pumps a machine gun
I know where to find you and I know just where we’ll run

Run it out
Drop it down
Rev it up
The speed of sound

Original rock and roll that feels strangely familiar and familiarly strange since 2006. Feel free to feel free. And remember, life goes on - until it don't.
