"No Brakes" as written by and Samuel Bingham Endicott....
No brakes this time
I slit the line
But if you want me, it's cool
You can take me for a fool
I could slow down if you want me to
But just for you, just for you, just for you

Carry me home, put me to bed!
Leave me alone, it's all in my head!
It's out of my hands, over the wheel
My only chance, my only appeal

What if you're here to save me from this?
If I disappear will I be missed?
I never know what I should do
Can I leave it up to you?

No brakes, it's true
No brakes, just you
Something to move me instead
Of this Rolodex in my head

I never meant anything I said
When I see red, I see red, I see red

Carry me home, put me to bed!
Leave me alone, it's all in my head!
It's out of my hands, over the wheel
My only chance, my only appeal

What if you're here to save me from this?
If I disappear will I be missed?
I never know what I should do
Can I leave it up to you?

Can I leave it up to you?
Can I leave it up to you?
Can I leave it up to you?

    General CommentIt's like when you are into someone so much that you finally don't even care that you make yourself vulnerable to being hurt. Leave it up to you - Letting her know how you feel even when they might not be into it.

    Is it a crush?

    General CommentI thought this song sounded slightly reminiscent of Pulp. Like an American Pulp or something. I never thought The Bravery were any good, but I heard this song and I thought it was brilliant.

    General Commenti think this song is about starting a new relashinship with somone and not wanting to move to fast and scare them away so u want them to controll how fast things go because your really not to shure about the whole thing
