I like the peace
in the backseat,
I don't have to drive,
I don't have to speak,
I can watch the country side,
and I can fall asleep.

My family tree's
loosing all it's leaves,
crashing towards the driver's seat,
the lightning bolt made enough heat
to melt the street beneath your feet.

Alice died
in the night,
I've been learning to drive.
My whole life,
I've been learning.

I like the peace
in the backseat,
I don't have to drive,
I don't have to speak,
I can watch the country side

Alice died
in the night,
I've been learning to drive.
My whole life,
I've been learning.

    General CommentTo me she's this innocent, carefree girl who enjoys a life with no real responsibilities or distrurbances. Then in the blink of an eye or a "lightening bolt" so quick, Alice, someone she loved and cared for very dearly (probably a family member because she says her family tree is losing all its leaves) dies and this girl is left to fend for herself. Shes "crashing towards the drivers seat" almost forced to take the wheel of her life and control it herself for the first time. Although shes been learning to drive aka become independent her whole life, shes always had someone there to be her support system and something she can lean on, but now she must be on her own. I love this song, we all can relate in some way.
