I will keep my helmet on
Finding someone that cares for you
And I
I will dress my songs cause I care for you
cause I
I will take my time driving you slow
Driving out cause I care for you
and then
someone loves you but I don't care for you
and I
I will get my love
cause I will be your love
oh no
there were times I could care for you
but then
I found that girl that's been smile for you
and I
start to be something
and I
I don't care
why should I care
I will get my life
cause I will be your life

Oh no

Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back

I will build my world
I will sing my songs
I will keep my helmet on

and I

I will build my world
I will sing my songs
I will keep my helmet on

and you can rule my world
you can rule my songs
I will keep my helmet on
And then

I will build my world
I will sing my songs
I will keep my helmet on

Oh no
Oh don't, don't, oh don't, don't
Find you someone that cares for you
and I
I will dress my songs cause I care for you
and I
I will take my time driving you slow
Driving out cause I care for you
And then
Someone loves you but I don't care for you
and I
You don't care
I don't care
cause I will get my love
and I will be your love
Oh no

Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back

I will build my world
I will sing my songs
I will keep my helmet on

and I

I will build my world
I will sing my songs
I will keep my helmet on

and you
can rule my world
you can rule my songs
I will keep my helmet on
and I

I will build my world
I will sing my songs
I will keep my helmet on

Oh no
Oh don't, don't, oh don't, don't
Oh don't, don't, oh don't

Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back

I will build my world
I will sing my songs
I will keep my helmet on

and I

I will build my world
I will sing my songs
I will keep my helmet on

and you

you can rule my world
you can rule my songs
I will keep my helmet on

and I

I will build my world
I will sing my songs
I will keep my helmet on

    My InterpretationI saw The Gift live this summer. They were great! Although it's a hell of a battle to find mp3 downloads of their albums...
    I think this song is about a woman who likes this man, but is very nonchalant towards him. As if she's saying, if you want to be in my life, great! If not, okay. Whatever. I'll still sing my songs. She'll only begin to truly care for him when she has him, not when she's just pining for him to avoid getting hurt ("I will keep my helmet on").
    The entire song is just a really big confusion, with all the "and I..."s, but it works. When she sings lines like,
    "I don't care, why should I care?" and "Someone loves you but I don't care for you," are what bring me to believe that she has a very loose leash on him, so to speak.
    To summarize: she's gonna take her time driving him slowly towards her, and only then will she remove "her helmet".
