Broken words said to me
These broken mirrors make it hard to see
Does anyone feel the same?
I need some help, I need some change
Broken dreams and broken hearts
You broke my trust right from the start
How am I supposed to feel
When nothing’s ever real?

If you want me try to take me
On the inside, just like a racecar

Carry on, but daddy’s gone
Tell me what did I do wrong
I need your help cause I don’t know
Take it slow, Look out below

And I’m traveling past the ever-growing graffiti on the over-pass
I wave to everybody while I fly on past
Cause this racecar was built to last

If you want me try to take me
On the inside, just like a racecar
Cut the corners if you’d like to
Take me away
I want to but I can’t let go

It’s six in the morning here
I lay awake I’m waiting for my mind to clear up
So I can rewind and just count myself to sleep
And everyday I want to climb to a new height
My life is like the making of a long ride
I started the ignition such a ling time ago

If you want me try to take me
On the inside, just like a racecar
Cut the corners if you’d like to
Take me away
I want to but I can’t let go

I’ll let you drive, I’ll let you drive
I’ll let you drive, I’ll let you take me away

    General CommentThis song is great. It's a great metaphore for us and our relationship with God. I do, though, think it a bit immature, but still, a good metaphore!

    General Commentthe 'metaphore' is more obviouse at the end of the song, when it says 'I'll let you drive' meaning that we should let God take total control of our life so really it should be 'I'll let You drive'.

    General CommentI just thought i would mention that Hawk Nelson is amazing, and Trevor McNevan is amazing! SO a collaboration between them, AHHHH! it makes me so happy. This song is amazing! And I love how Trevor McNevan is involved with so many awesome bands, so, check out TFK and Fm Static!

    General CommentSo darn catchy. I find myself singing to, "I want to but I can't let go." I'm not a fan of the lyrics though.

    General CommentI love this song because I can relate it to the story I am writing. It's is nicely metaphoric.
