"Speed" as written by and Steve (usa 2)/idol Stevens....
Running from the nightmare
In the middle of the road
Hell's no place for sleeping
In a world beyond control
Caught in the headlights
Coming after you
When I woke up this morning
I had to do what I gotta do
Blast me to Heaven for loving you
Blast me to Heaven for loving you

[Chorus]
Speed
Give me what I need
Yeah
White lightning
Let's speed, on speed
On wheels, on wheels
Speed
Oh, let it bleed
Yeah
Greased lightning
Let's speed, on speed
On wheels, on wheels

I've seen a train full of pain
On the edge of overload
We're in Heaven, baby
You are gonna implode
I've got these crazy feelings
That I can't explain
I've gotta save you baby
Or I'll die in vain
Blast me to Heaven for loving you
I said blast me to Heaven just for loving you

[Chorus]

Blast me to Heaven for loving you
I said blast me to Heaven for loving you

Now I'm rushing on the run, yeah
I want to have me some fun
I'll speed
Give me what I need
Oh, set me free
Let's speed
On wheels, on wheels, on wheels
Said speed
Oh, let it bleed
Yeah
White lightning
Let's speed, on speed
On wheels, on wheels
C'mon

I said speed, speed
Give me what I need
I said speed, speed
Give me what I need
Alright

    General CommentIt's about amphetamine. I think the song reflects the lyric perfect.

    My OpinionI think it's about a motorcycle, honest to goodness. This is the kind of music you hear in a motorcycle movie, while the camera spans in to see a guy shoving a hotdog with relish down his throat and some chick yelling come on you bastards. or some shit like that. Ten minutes later there's a head on a stick and the good rock stops.

    General CommentYeah, I suppose ... However it could just be about the rush you feel in the early stages of love, and sometimes at other stages, or when a plan is coming together, or you are chillin out with your best mates. If you've never felt it you won't have a clue what I mean, but its just like this music! Only just heard this, had to look it up here.

    General CommentWas this song originally written for the movie Speed? I heard that but I don't want to watch the movie. I'm allergic to bad acting. *cough* Keanu Reeves *cough*
