"1000 Miles Per Hour" as written by and Damian Kulash....
Another long quiet night...
Another long quiet, lonely night spent at your side.
Not a lot left to say...
There's not a lot that I still could say to change your mind.

But with a little bit of money we could buy us a car.
With a little luck we could get away from where we are.
Let's get out of here.

We'll drive, one thousand miles an hour.
We'll fly by wheat fields and water towers.
We'll go. We'll go and we'll go and we'll go. Let's go.

Now the look in your eye...
You know, the look right before you cry... it's always here.
So in the day when you wake...
In the morning when you awake, let's disappear.

With a little bit of money we could buy us a car.
With a little luck we could get away from where we are.
Let's get out of here.

We'll drive, one thousand miles an hour.
We'll fly by wheat fields and water towers.
We'll go. We'll go and we'll go and we'll go. Let's go.

    General CommentThis song means so much to me. My number one fantasy has always been to just run away and this song shows exactly how I feel.

    General Commentthis song rules, especially the wheat fields and water towers part... that's basically all there is here in the midwest. i'm not sure what it's about exactly... it seems like they just want to get out of the midwest because it's so horribly boring. yes, definitely a good driving song.

    General CommentI think this song is about how life sucks at home, and just wanting to go leave it all behind them and start somewhere new

    General CommentIn Saskatchewan, these lyrics fit so perfectly. It's all wheat fields and water towers. And I agree, every day I just want to pack up and leave and maybe never come back. I just adore this song.

    General CommentWow, apparently I left pretty much that same comment over a year ago.

    But now I have graduated college and can and will be leaving Ohio this fall.

    General CommentI'm in manitoba. but part of my family lives in Saskatchewan (hard to spell, easy to draw) and in Kerobert is definitely where this song fits perfectly.
