as soon as i see your face i'll know if i should just go back to the road, but you picked a fine time to drop this (or "drop dead", again yr choice) on my heart (though i should have known) if i could say every word i know, and you could learn everything i've hoped would i still drive home screaming at the dark with my radio? we both know how the wheels will turn with something burning inside of us. remembering the sadness and heartache, long love sad passing shame.

    General CommentI think this song is about how the singer told someone he loves her, and then she says no (but he should have known she would) he comes back to her, knowing that as soon as he sees her face he will know if he should just turn around, or try again. And if he says everything he knows, will it change her mind? or will he end up driving home screaming the words to his favorite sad song in his car. The line "we both know how the wheels will turn with something burning inside of us." i think is about how when you love someone you will start to twist things into signs that they like you. All i know is that after i tried for weeks to get the girl i ended up driving home screaming the words to this song at the top of lungs and puching the steering wheel. and i guess thats what the final line is about, when you look back later on the sadness and heartache, you kind love that sad, but relativly quickly passing shame.

    General Commentto me this song describes the awkwardness of the aftermath of a break-up - the period of time where you try to get over each other but every time you cross paths you seem to fall all over again. "we both know how the wheels will turn with something burning inside of us. " -> it seems as though both sides of the past relationship want to move on but they know they're still in love and realize it most when they're together.
